Whereas Ethan is out for his morning run, Harper will get dolled up and is there prepared for morning intercourse when he returns… however he walks proper previous her. Nonetheless, she guarantees to be nicer to Cameron and Daphne: “I’m gonna be so enjoyable… Simply watch.” At breakfast, she plasters on a smile and exchanges chipper compliments with Daphne, however her sunny strategy backfires when she will get roped into driving out to an outdated Italian city close by with Daphne whereas Cameron and Ethan keep again on the resort and experience jet-skis. Oops!
Albie tracks down Portia and apologizes for ending their evening early, saying he needed to come back in. “Then it’s best to’ve are available in,” she replies. He frets that he ought to’ve been extra aggressive, so when Bert invitations her alongside on a tour of Godfather filming places, Albie tells her to come back alongside: “I’m being extra aggressive.” In the meantime, Tanya is a multitude as Greg prepares to fly again dwelling, sobbing and providing to drop their prenup if he’ll keep. He thanks her for locating the medical doctors so he’ll now dwell rather a lot longer — yeah, we have been questioning about that — and units her off once more when he mentions being married 4 instances. (“I believed it was solely three,” she sobs.) Plus, Lucia and Mia take their money and splurge at a elaborate boutique, bossing the saleswoman round.
Harper and Daphne head out on their day journey… and Cameron catches Lucia’s eye again on the resort. On the Godfather tour, Albie dismisses the film as an outdated patriarchal fantasy drenched in intercourse and violence.

Portia will get an pressing name from Tanya demanding she come again to the resort, so she leaves, and Albie blames Dom and Bert for chasing her away. “You do have a knack for repelling ladies,” he sneers to his dad. Harper and Daphne arrive at a stunning outdated Italian nation villa, and Daphne reveals she rented out the entire place — they usually’re spending the evening there! Harper hesitates, however Daphne doesn’t wish to invite their husbands: “Why allow them to have all of the enjoyable?” Oh, and again on the resort, Cameron is pushing Ethan to take a position his newfound riches with him — “I make individuals cash, bro” — and chiding him for not tipping him off about his massive enterprise sale forward of time. (Yep, that might’ve been very unlawful.)
A despondent Tanya hires a neighborhood fortune teller to study the place her marriage is headed, however when the psychic tells her, “The playing cards say your husband is in love with another person,” Tanya kicks her out for being too “unfavorable.” (She additionally forces poor Portia to only sit quietly close by whereas she takes a nap.)

It’s like hide-and-seek.” She calls Cameron to inform him they’ll be spending the evening on the villa, and he gripes to Ethan that she’s “punishing” him… however he additionally takes this as his inexperienced gentle to social gathering. Dom tries to make peace with Albie, asking him to place in an excellent phrase along with his mother, however Albie informs him: “Nothing is gonna repair this… You need to cease doing what you’re doing and really change.” Whereas Cameron and Ethan race round on jet-skis, Harper and Daphne take a stroll although city and get overtly leered at by dozens of Italian males, with Daphne providing Harper a weed edible.
Dom tells Lucia he can’t see her tonight as a result of he’s making an attempt to avoid wasting his marriage, so she searches for a brand new goal — and lands at Cameron and Ethan’s desk. (“Everybody cheats,” Cameron tells Ethan.)

The weed edibles kick in for Harper and Daphne as they open up about their husbands; when Harper asks if Cameron’s cheated, Daphne replies: “Perhaps simply as soon as. That I learn about.” However “I’m not a sufferer,” she insists. She does fear about what would possibly occur to a nerd like Ethan as soon as he will get wealthy, although.
Cameron and Ethan do liquor photographs and molly with Lucia and Mia (“Let’s enjoyable!” they declare), they usually find yourself again within the resort room, the place all of them dance and drink — and Cameron kisses Ethan a bit? Ethan finally ends up hiding within the lavatory, and when Mia kisses him, he shakes his head no and she or he backs off.
