Jersey Shore Season 2 Episode 10 was one long Angelina showcase. Although Episode 10 picked up from Angelina and The Situation’s fight to end last week, Angelina had more fighting left to do. From the start, she has been the house scapegoat, causing the most division among the group — which is saying something. But since she is part of the gang, and since MTV must love the drama she causes, they have to put up with her. Yet in this episode, the line was finally crossed for good — at least for Season 2.
Warning: Spoilers follow.
The cliffhanger fight between Angelina and The Situation didn’t amount to much more at the start of the episode. All of last week, MTV promos hinted at a huge fight to come, but there was little payoff. For this week, fans had to wait a little while longer again for the big fight.
Beforehand, The Situation recovered quickly by hooking up with new girl Samantha. But the next morning, he was back to work getting in shouting matches with Angelina, who was reaching her limit fast.
Thanks to the group turning on her, she vowed to “be a b*tch” to everyone who upset her. Of course, it’s not like Episode 10 was the first time she followed through on that threat. This time, the group was in no mood to see her do it, and officially kicked her out.
However, Jersey Shore could not show Angelina going out without one final altercation. At long last, after two weeks of hype, she finally got into one more major fight to close her time in Miami. As Vinny said, she went out with a bang — although probably later than some would have liked.
With just a few episodes left this season, the show is now missing one of its more volatile figures. Yet even if Angelina doesn’t come back until Season 3, she will undoubtedly be back at some point. Although she yelled that she “can’t stand any of youse,” that doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll never see them again — at least if MTV has anything to say about it.
Now that Jersey Shore has belatedly paid off on the latest house vs. Angelina showdowns, they must find new plotlines to wrap the Miami trip up. They could always go back to Sammi-Ronni turmoil, which actually hasn’t taken over the show lately.
But now that the other major source of Season 2 drama is gone, Sammi and Ronnie are probably due for one more breakup to wrap it up. After all, even The Situation’s hookups can’t fill three more hours.
