Roblé fans, it's our final moments together this season. Let's cherish them as we recap the finale.
Tapas Anxiety, also Regular Anxiety
We open with a little bit of tension. Roblé and Jasmine are having hamburgers and discussing how they can't fight anymore (which is always the surest way to get people to stop fighting, right? Just tell them that they aren't allowed). They don't have time for all this trouble -- they need to cater a party for Rachel Dratch!
How much do I love Rachel Dratch? It's impossible to measure it statistically. Remember when she was appearing as Liz Lemon's visions on 30 Rock? Did you see Spring Breakdown? It's really a delight of an under-rated film (my favorite moment being when Parker Posey exclaims "We're people, not tacos." Look into that fine piece of cinema if you can.
And as if I didn't adore the Dratch enough, she accurately explains the stress that is eating tapas (tapas anxiety is the term she uses). Let's all be honest here -- sometimes it's hard to share food with strangers. It doesn't make you a fat kid. It just means that you have lived a life eating with people who aren't phenomenal at sharing food (I'm looking at you Dad).
Adding to the tapas anxiety, Jasmine meets with a good pal who does something unexpected -- she offers her a job she can't refuse. We'll see how that all shakes out.
Until then Che's just wearing overalls whipping up Spanish fare, all of which looks so delicious I would definitely feel anxiety if I had to share. As if the prevalence of goat cheese and pork wasn't enough of a party, Adam brings out a Spanish wine contraption that forces people to chug wine and then do graceful things with their wrists. It leads Rachel to pretty drunken levels of enjoyment.
Between that, the slow clap for duck fat, and some guy chugging hot chocolate it seems like the party a rousing success.
Chef Roble has been asking his sister, Jasmine, to check their relationship at the door ever since the 1st season as their relationship does not exist in business. Jasmine has sacrificed a lot, has been disrespected and humiliated by her brother in front of the camera. Now Roble doesn't understand why his sister is looking to improve her business relationship? Now he wants her to give him loyalty because they're family?! Uh huh, Roble.. You are totally wrong for using her. You don't do that to family. I am very proud that Jasmine is now giving you a nice taste of your own medicine and she is straight up serious about the job offer. Booyah!
That's the point Jazz was trying to get through to him! She's working almost non-stop with no down time on making Him and the Company A success! She's good at what she does! She's made tremendous sacrifices in order for his company to be the success that it has gotten to be in so far and she has gotten nothing from him but disrespect and unappreciation for all of her hard work! How dare he question her loyalty to him and the company when all she does is find him top clientele and work her hump off to please them! He disrespects her in front of the other staff members and that is ALL THE WAY WRONG!! He needs to take step back and smell what he's dishing out! Before he puts a RIFT between them that will never be healed because he's hurt, but he LITERALLY RIPPED HIS SISTER'S HEART OUT TONIGHT! Pay Dues? OMG! She's Exhausted from paying dues!
I really love Chef Roble.The show is so good. The food last night looked so good that I was jealous I was not at either event. I do not know what will happen next season but sister needs to chill. The man should not have to turn over part of his company just to satisfy you. I am certain he can find someone to replace you. Although you have learned a lot and improved tremendously, I do not think you deserve a part of his company just yet. Go to Muse Salon and do your thing and let him find someone to replace you. Love is love between siblings but business is business!
I agree with drpolisc. It was a little disturbing that she gains this experience working hard because of the learning curve and she claims she's working hard for not much then implies she wants to not work as hard. Add to that, she wants to have a social life and can't because she is always working. She might not intend it, but she sounds a tad ungrateful. As far as Jasmine "giving up alot", be assured, the notriety of the show may have made her desirable for MUSE. She needs to step back and not demand so much from Roble. He knows his history with his sister and must already know something we don't regarding her work ethic.
