The latest episode of "Jersey Shore" involved Snooki's baby shower, which is one of the biggest events that the gang has had to plan. Not only is it difficult to keep it a surprise, but it's awkward because of the issues involving Mike and Vinny. Both have a checkered history with Snooki, but both realize that they need to work things out if they hope to save their friendship with the mom-to-be. While that was the big thing in this episode, fans all also got to see a familiar face when Angelina showed up at a club. Here is a recap of the latest episode, "Shore Shower."
Snooki's baby showerThe planning for Snooki's surprise baby shower continued, and there was plenty of drama surrounding it. Most of it involved Jionni, who has drawn the anger of several roommates because he isn't around enough. Snooki tells Deena that Jionni is busy with his softball team, and it's clear that she really misses him. Jionni eventually does show up to spend time with his fiancé, but Snooki is angry because he doesn't want to go the baby store with her. This time, it's not Jionni's fault. The roommates have bought plenty of gifts for Snooki, and they don't want her buying the same things. Before Jionni enters Snooki's apartment, Sam runs interference by telling him not to take her to the store. This leads to some awkward moments between the couple as they eat dinner, but Snooki eventually lets it go.
JWoww and the girls finish decorating for the shower, and the big event is about to happen. Of course, there's still the unsettled awkwardness involving Mike and Vinny. Neither is thrilled to be going to the event given their history with Snooki and Jionni, but both have plans to address the awkwardness. When the shower surprise is revealed, Snooki is overwhelmingly happy. She's grateful that her roommates do have an interest in her baby stuff, but it's clear that things are strange with Mike and Vinny in the room. When she steps out, Vinny finally decides to have his conversation. He asks Jionni to talk with him outside, and the episode ends with the two starting to converse in the parking lot.
MVP strikes outMike, Vinny, and Pauly rarely have problems finding women. However, the trio had a series of strikeouts in this episode. There are several reasons for the lack of romance in this episode. For one, Mike has an awkward moment with ex-flame Paula at a club. She somewhat prevents him from sealing the deal, and he goes home empty-handed.
Later, all three guys have their night spoiled when they run into Angelina. The villainous roommate from the first couple of seasons apologizes to all three guys, but she won't leave. She keeps on apologizing, and it's clear that she's getting on their nerves. All three guys mention how little they care about Angelina, and they end up leaving the club with no girls.
As Mike and Pauly stop for food, Vinny heads home on his own. He bumps into two girls on the street, and it looks like things are leading to a threesome. Unfortunately, the smush room is occupied by Roger and JWoww. That leaves Vinny with no choice but to take the girls to his bedroom, where Mike and Pauly are laying in their beds. With the lack of privacy, the threesome doesn't happen, allowing Vinny to keep his celibacy vow throughout the summer.
