When the joy of first love turns to the pain of first heartbreak, Zoey’s friends help her to begin the healing process. Full recap of “Un-break My Heart” by @luvthispayne.
Hey Y’all. How’s your week going so far? Probably better than Zoey’s. Last week the episode ended after she and Cash broke up and left us with Zoey in tears. Has her heart healed? Did she and Cash reconcile? Let’s talk about it!
When we get back to campus at Cal U, Zoey mentions that it’s been three weeks since she and Cash broke up and she’s not coping all that well. I mean, Sis hasn’t washed her hair in three weeks and seems to be living on a diet of Doritos. I am legit disgusted. Her bed is her closest friend and it’s very clear that Zoey desperately needs an intervention.
Intervention she needs. Intervention she gets. Nomi, Ana, Sky and Jazz show up to drag her out of her wallowing ways. They’ve brought the liquor and refuse to leave until Zoey agrees to go out with them for at least an hour. If after an hour, she’s not feeling it then she can come back to the dorm and wallow away. Zoey’s not feelin the whole idea and would much rather continue laying in her bed of pity. A part of Nomi understands because she just broke up with Dave but the other part of her is like NAH, enough is enough. The ladies are persistent and let Zoey know that if she refuses to go out, they’ll start live-streaming her new lifestyle to the entire campus. Convinced, Zoey has to pull herself together and head out. They go in the back of her closet and pull out a freakum dress and Sis looks BANGING!
As soon as Zoey gets dressed and they’re all set to head out the door, there’s a power outage. Damn. I thought they were gonna get to drag her out of her funk for at least a little while. Get Sis drunk and make her go on the dance floor or something. But the universe had other plans. Not only is Zoey not mad, but she does the superman telephone booth change and is back in her pajamas ASAP! *eyeroll*
Alright so what was supposed to be Ladies Night Out is now turning into a full on pajammy jam. That’s fine too because those are lit, especially when there is liquor involved. And there is liquor involved. Let the girl talk commence. Zoey explains that she’s actually really happy they aren’t going out because she wasn’t really up for it. Everyone is trying to help her understand that she has to start moving on.
But moving on isn’t so easy when you were dating the guy who was/is a superstar on your campus. Zoey has to see his face everywhere and everything reminds her of a memory with Cash. Listen, we have allllllllll been there Zo Zo, after a breakup when all you have left are the memories and the heartache. Woo woo woo. Woo woo woo.
Not only is Zoey struggling because she’s constantly reminded of Cash, but she also can’t believe how easy it seems to be for him to just move on. She starts to second guess their relationship. I mean how could he just turn his feelings off after essentially asking her to make a life altering decision and then reneging on that question. Ugh. Men. But Sky comes through as a voice of reason and says maybe Cash didn’t actually know what he was feeling. Even more important, Jazz drops a gem when she says “Just because someone loves you, it doesn’t mean it’s going to work out. And just because it didn’t work out doesn’t mean that they didn’t love you.” PREACH!
Besides being incredibly wild beyond their years, the twins were really my favorite part of this episode. You’ll see.
Anyways, Sky reminds Zoey to try and focus on the BAD things about Cash and not remember all the good. Zoey seems to have a little trouble with this so Nomi grabs a cup and starts pouring liquor. She says she’ll keep pouring until Zoey can say something bad about Cash. These are real friends. OMG. I’m so proud.
The first thing Zoey could think of is that Cash never got you’re and your correct in text. Girl I need you to dig deeper even though that is annoying as hell. You know what’s worse though? The people who text “ur” for your. Ugh, thats so ugly and I get instantly annoyed. Like seriously is it that difficult to really text your? The answer is, its not. Anyway, they accept it as an answer and slowly but surely she starts to get better with her insults. Cash would use gel toothpaste, he was cheating in all his classes and the best one was one time she told him she was anemic and he asked when did she get her memory back?! This is my ghost because I died, that killed me. LMAOOOOOOO!!!
In the midst of laughing at his stupidity, Sky and Jazz mention not feeling bad about icing him out. Zoey gets upset because she thinks that their little act will indicate that she’s been talking bad about him. But I mean you have been talking bad about him. Girl your priorities are screwed lol Your friends should be icing him out, he broke up with you after announcing on national television that you were his girl. Ungrateful much? I think so. Besides ain’t nobody worried about his lil feelings.
(If looks could kill)
Since everybody letting shit slip, Zoey lets it slip that in these past three weeks she’s still been talking to Cash. WAIT. PAUSE. THE. GAME. You’ve been what?! I swear sometimes I really worry about Zoey. I do. What the hell could y’all possibly have to still be talking about?! I canna.
The ladies have to school Zoey about severing all TIES with Cash. Unfollow him on social media and quite honestly block his ass. I mean he might be headed to the NBA soon and do you really want to see what or who the hell he’s doing All-Star Weekend? Issa no for me dawg. Hell the twins even offer to kill him for her and honestly its not such a terrible idea. See, I just adore them. We all need twins like them in our life!
Zoey needs a breather and while she’s in the bathroom guess who comes knocking on her door, ITS WOKE BAE! Heyyyyyyyyy Aaron. He think he slick, the lights out and Zoey is grieving a breakup and here he comes with a candle and Champagne. Champagne, who this n**** think he is, DRAKE? I am undone! Anyway he come sauntering up looking like a straight ass snack in this Outkast t-shirt, lest we forget that Aaron is all kinds of fine. Meanwhile, his not so smooth counterpart, Vivek, is going door to door trying to smash anything that’ll consent. He’s so thirsty.
Ladies night turns into Us vs. Them as they start to debate the different ways men and women react and heal from breakups. Aaron doesn’t understand why the girls would be sitting around in their emotions. He refers to Zoey’s friends as the First Wives Club and I know half of y’all watching last night had no clue what that meant and I am sad for you.
Having the guys there seems to lift the mood and when everybody leaves for a pee break, I saw ALL the sparks flying between Zoey and Aaron #TeamZaron !!! Aaron out here telling Zoey how beautiful and goofy she is. I was melting in his arms for her.
But Aaron has this cute ass way of putting his foot in that beautiful mouth and he lets it slip that Cash is hooking up with Zoe Kravitz. I really felt a rage and a desire to fight. Cash has to catch the fade right quick.
*Facepalm* We were doing so well. Why would you bring that up AARON! Whyyyyyyyyyy?! Zoey is now irrational and wants to call Cash. I love the way Sky loving tells her she’s going to look like a fool if she does. Sky’s voice is so sweet that even when she says bitch you about to look crazy it sounds so sweet. I adore her. Zoey look Sis, if he’s moved on, you just gotta do the same. DO. NOT. CALL. HIM. Like y’all I was screaming at my tv that she betta not call him. He don’t deserve her calls. NO. NO. NO. STOP. IT.
But because Zoey is Queen of I Don’t Want to Do Right, she calls him. But when he answers, he shows up and they actually get to talk face to face. Zoey lets Cash know that he really hurt her, and he apologizes and comforts Zoey by assuring her that she’s the only woman he wants. TRICK PLEASE! You wasn’t saying that when you was breaking up with her three weeks AGO!!! TOO BAD IT’S ALL IN ZOEY’S DAMN HEAD! I was all riled up and fuming and Sis was just daydreaming. PHEW. Because what we not doing is taking him back just like that. Nope. Neaux. Know.
Zoey snaps out of her daydream and comes to her senses. She decides not to call Cash and to go ahead and delete his number. Good for you Sis. Good for you. Now inquiring minds want to know have you been going to class during this 3 week depression or nah because I have questions about ya grades Sis.
Thank goodness though for friends who make you come out of your funk even when you don’t want to address your issues head on. By the end of the night, Zoey was recreating 7/11 with the girls and Aaron and Vivek. I mean she isn’t completely healed but its definitely a start and better than being hold up in her room huffing Doritos.
For now, thats all we can ask for! See y’all next week!
