Camping Season 1 Episode 8 Recap
In the previous episode of HBO’s Camping, the campers celebrated Walt’s birthday by taking Ecstasy, and Kathryn let slip to Walt that she didn’t want to have sex with him. In the season finale, the night continues.
When Nina-Joy and Braylen went to her tent, she realized that she didn’t like Braylen as much as she thought. George showed up and admitted he had a rage problem. Nina-Joy told him that she made the wrong choice, loved him, and wanted to work it out. Unfortunately, George realized that even though they could try again, they deserved better than what they had. Braylen took Nina-Joy back to Los Angeles even though she didn’t like his poetry.
Wrath of Kath
Jandice was in the middle of giving Kathryn a “Walt” tattoo when they started arguing again. Jandice refused to finish it and left Kathryn with “Wa”. Kathryn went to pick up Orvis from Harry’s trailer. However, Harry felt that she wasn’t in the right state to hand him over. Harry told Kathryn about her friend, Sue, who died, and how the experience gave her perspective.
Kathryn tried to have sex with Walt, who was asleep in their tent. He stopped her and claimed she couldn’t control this. She went back to the barn where Jandice had found her. They wrestled, and Kathryn punched her several times. Walt came in, and Kathryn realized what she had done. But Jandice was happy for Kathryn, who had finally let go of herself. Right then, Harry came crashing down from the roof of the barn as Orvis peeked through the newly-formed hole.
Miguel and Joe found Jandice drinking alone. They disgusted her since she felt they only wanted something from her and didn’t really care about her. Jandice manipulated them into proving they did care about her. She wanted Miguel to perform oral sex on Joe, while she watched, and they complied.
The next morning, Joe, still with Carleen, would be heading back to rehab, and Miguel and George went to get breakfast without the women they came with.
Reign of Terror
Walt and Carleen commiserated in her tent. They vowed to stand up to Kathryn and didn’t rule out murdering her. Later that night, after Kathryn had tried to sleep with him, Jandice found him writhing on the ground outside. They had sex, which lasted only a few seconds.
The next morning, Walt and Kathryn picked up Orvis from Harry’s trailer. Jandice had spent the night there after Harry nursed her back to health. They explained that Jandice would be staying there, and Jandice proposed a reunion trip next year.
In the van on the car ride home, Walt blurted out that he slept with Jandice. Kathryn cried, but they held hands.
