Look, I know this recap is late, but I have an excuse! However, before I hit you with a sob story, I’m sorry. I’ll do better next week. (Actually the week after next!)

Currently I’m preparing to attend the CTE More Retreat this week, where I’ll be pitching my business to get a grant worth $2,500! Plus, I’m gearing up to cover one of the most coveted film festivals later this week, Sundance!

So with everything happening this week I’m a little behind posting my weekly tv show recaps, including this recap of Grownish Season 3 Episode 9.

But anywho, Grownish Season 3 Episode 9 aired a few days ago, but since my bootleg a** don’t have real TV (we’re just running on our fire stick and streaming apps right now) I won’t be able to watch things or post a recap until it’s posted on Hulu the next day.

So you can expect these recaps the day after its TV release! I’ll try to get them up early so you don’t miss out on much.

Okay so, with that said, here’s the run down …

Grownish Season 3 Episode 9 Recap

Zoey Bada$$ is living her life …

Y’all remember Zoey quit school awhile back to style for Joey Bada$$ right? Okay, good!

Well now, not only is she styling Joey, Joey hooked her up with her first music video and she’s also styling Saweetie!

Okay, I don’t know if she really “styled” Saweetie, since sis jacked Zoey’s outfit instead of wearing the one she was given! (Not that I blame her since it WAS cuter.)

And while Zoey is supposed to be living her life, and feeling proud that she’s now styled 2 celebs, sis is zoning out daydreaming about Aaron! She’s supposed to be taking a break from work to go home and catch up with everyone at Cal U, but of course Joey needs her for another day!

But Zoey being Zoey, (and probably most of us when we’re really digging someone) instead of being sad she can’t run home to see her girls, she out here talking ’bout “but what about Aaron’s lips?” Sis what ABOUT his lips?

He can’t wait?

Oh and if you’re wondering about Jazz and Doug …

They’re still on a break!

Well, they WERE on a break!

Until Jazz noticed Doug was chilling with some new chick, which I think he’s foul for, if he so call loves her. But Jazz has been stalking his social and popping up where ever he’s at with her friends like a pyshco!

And sis walked right over to his table and introduced herself as Jazlyn!

I ain’t never heard her say her full name! Then she had the nerve to call this girl “Bugs Bunny girlfriend” cause her name is Lola! I DIED!

Why is she like this?!

THEN Jazz looked at her and asked her if SHE was someone’s girlfriend! Basically tryna see if Doug was Bugs Bunny? *sigh*

I mean she’s the one that asked for space so she could focus on the Olympic trials! But dang sis, maybe you should have just tried to juggle both? Cause you doin’ a lot now!

But also … she said SPACE … she ain’t say f*ck everyone else that comes your way.

Dang. Men expect women to wait all the time and no one blinks an eye, but when a woman does, it’s wrong?

Surprisingly, Luca and what’s her name are still a thing …

Honesty I don’t even remember this girl’s name! (Sorry love!) But they’re still a couple and I guess I’m happy for them? Not happy enough to remember her name apparently.

But whatever.

She’s totally testing him! Got him playing “the floor is lava” and sh*t! Not that he lasted long because we all know Luca don’t care about all that. But I am surprised he didn’t automatically dismiss the idea, the way he used to dismiss Zoey’s a** every time she suggested doing something out of his norm.

So I guess he must really like her, and they gel well. Whatever!

Saweetie also got a “good sized” role …

I really thought they were just gonna throw her in for the music video shoot and then pull her out, but she was still in there giving Zoey advice and sh*t! Which I think is cute.

Hopefully they keep her for a few episodes, like Joey, because she’s doing great!

I love her annoying, happy a** character!

So I’m turning the tables a bit, so we can discuss the guys, starting with Luca …

Who gave his girl a key to his loft!

I mean, she gave that sh*t right back to his a** but still! Luca really likes her!

Despite his a**hole ways, he really does seem to love deep. I think he tries to hide it though.

But yeah, she’s not ready to accept the key because shocker she was engaged before this! She ended up breaking the guy’s heart when she didn’t go through with the marriage, and now she’s scared to move too fast again.

But Luca … yes Luca … didn’t even argue! He did get upset for a bit and left to take a shower. But after she sat and talked with him about it, he said he’d put the key under his plant in case she ever wanted to chill there while he was gone, with no pressure to accept it.

Which I thought was SUPER f*cking cute! And I’m so glad they’re communicating.

I guess that’s where she’s got Zoey beat! She’s a bit more mature. Where Zoey woulda threw a fit, she just explained it.

And Lord, Aaron, poor Aaron …

So Zoey texted him how she really felt before getting home and he said he “wanted to hook up” when she got back in town.

Turns out, he meant he wanted to “hook up” so they could sit and talk!

I don’t know who the hell uses the phrase “hook up” to talk, but whatever. So when Zoey, met up with him, she told his girlfriend to go get her a drink. *cringe* She thought she was the waitress! I literally died inside.

However, after Aaron explained she was his girlfriend, Zoey walked out and he ran after her. But instead of pleading with her, he just explained WHY he moved on.

Apparently, he’s tired of Zoey “playing him” and he’s scared to trust her with his heart? Like what sir? But I get it! When she was supposed to choose him, she chose someone else! *cough* Luca *cough* And they’ve been in this weird tango for like forever now. So instead of waiting around for her, he moved on.

I mean, I knew Aaron was gonna pull a b*xch move, but whew! I ain’t see that one coming. I do hope he’s happy though. He would have been great for Zoey if she wasn’t so busy, because he’s super supportive. But oh well …

Speaking of new girlfriends … Doug now has none!

Yup, after Doug asked Jazz if he was allowed to date other girls because he didn’t know the “rules” of their separation, she cut him loose.

They sat and had a discussion and I guess Jazz realized that she couldn’t ask for space, and ask him to wait? She did however ask him to promise not to fall in love with anyone else for the next 6 months, which he agreed to?

And he said it like he’d probably never fall in love with someone else, so it was kinda cute? I don’t know. I wish he woulda just sucked it up, supported her dreams, and waited. But I get its college. Do you boo, do you!

I do like that everyone communicates though!

However, I’m excited to see what happens next. The girls made a pact to let boys go and just focus on themselves, so we’ll see how long that lasts!
