Episode 8: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor breathes a sigh of relief now that Matt and Courtney are a thing.

Ahhh... That is my sigh of relief after receiving the perfect ending to this season. But more on that later. To start things off right (and help sum up the Dallas experience), please take a moment to enjoy this montage video of some of Courtney's best "list" moments:

Good times. Now on to our final week round of lessons from the Big D.

DO: Treat Yo Self!

Dallas divas always need to keep themselves up and shouldn't be afraid to try new, salt-laden treatments. Courtney and Tara had themselves a nice float in a salt bath, which was supposed to...help their buoyancy? I forget exactly what the benefits were of this treatment, but I do know that they insisted on taking a bottle of wine in with them. Ladies after my own heart, truly. And I know that the super salty water keeps you afloat, but did there was only about an inch of water in that tank. Did that seem awkward to anyone else?

PS: Do not get frisky in the salt bath. As Courtney pointed out, you would not want to be the person who got burned the first time.

DO: Determine whether you're in the friend zone or the bone zone

As much as I enjoy lady time at the spa, the listening to the guys bro out is really equally amusing. Glenn's not fooled by Matt's "we're-just-friends-but-I'm-taking-her-on-a-romantic-getaway" spiel (and rightly so) and tries to get Matt to admit that he's heading to the bone zone with Courtney. Personally I've always been a fan of pound town, but the bone zone works here as well.

DO: Bring the Porsche for potential break-up situations

Well Drew messed up and unfortunately suffered the consequences when Cody basically told him to get out of his life. Rough break. However Drew clearly thought ahead when he drove his Porsche to the restaurant, thus allowing him to meet up with Tara and Daylon as soon as possible afterward. I imagine they then zipped over to the video store to rent a sad movie and pick up some healing junk food. DO: Be sure to procure the perfect performance outfit

I liked the look Neill finally settled on for the Dallas debut of her band, Kitty Lala. However I was kind of digging that billowy prairie dress. Who wouldn't want to rock that Little House on the Prairie vibe? Also glad she avoided the cheerleader skirt, because that could have fallen into Toni Basil territory.

DON'T: Go horseback riding without applying a healthy amount of hairspray

This is Dallas after all, come on!

DON'T: Think you're going to win over a Dallas girl just by riding a horse

Sorry, Matt, Courtney wasn't exactly swooning over the whole urban cowboy thing. Next time try having a glass of wine for her if you're looking to score some extra points. DON'T: Bring a girl to a gas station for dinner

Sure the restaurant Jody took Tara to was one of those kitschy, fun little places that's a secret gem. But even if it was one of the most amazing culinary experiences ever, you'll still always be known as that guy that took her to a gas station for dinner among all her friends. And that's just never good.

DON'T: Eat smores with someone you're possibly trying to seduce

The idea of making smores seemed cute and romantic, but when Matt and Courtney actually tried to eat them it just looked...really un-sexy. It was just kind of messy in a bad way.

DO: Date your best friend

Matt's relationship advice from his parents to date your best friend seems pretty solid. And it looks as if it's working out for him...DON'T: Think you're not going to hook up with someone when you're in a hot tub on an intimate weekend getaway 

FINALLY! All it took was a mini-vacation, a day of horseback riding, impromptu fireworks, and a hot tub. DON'T: Try and conceal your new relationship with a friend from all of your mutual friends

I mean everyone has been trying to get Matt and Courtney together (probably for years). When you're acting all touchy-feely at a dinner, you're friends are going to pick up on it. I mean you wouldn't even have to be friends with Matt and Courtney to tell that they were dating. It also doesn't help that Courtney has absolutely no poker face.

DO: Mention to the person you're dating that you're still married

Kind of an important detail there, Jody.

Achy Breaky Heart

Drew shares his struggle to get over Cody.

I want to get all the negative stuff out of the way first. I made some very big mistakes with Cody. I have thought about what I did wrong for a long time, and I have to live with the pain. I really screwed up with Cody. The pain hurt my heart for months. I really do love him. No matter what happens in life, I will always have a place in my heart for him. It seems like in my life every time I get into a relationship that might work out, it just falls apart.

After Cody broke my heart you all saw me cry. I have never cried over a man like that before ever in my life. I was hurting so badly after Cody left the restaurant. I didn't know what to do, but I was so grateful that Tara and Daylon were there for me. They rushed over to me at the last minute. Seriously, I don't know what I would do without them. During the next couple of hours I was a mess. Tara was a complete saint. She called everyday to check on me. She knew I was hurt and even made sure I was eating. For the next couple of months it was really hard for me to get back into dating. It really felt like an incredible mountain to climb. As for me trying to sell Daylon a car, what can I say, I'm workaholic. It's in my Ginsburg genes. I never stop working and it's actually very hard for me to go on a vacation. To truly relax I have to get far, far away from Dallas.

As for me, I can tell you now I'm feeling better. I saw Cody for the first time in September and I'm actually dating again.

Tara and Jody… I never thought a gas station would serve fine food. I still wonder if there was graffiti on the bathroom walls. That lovely dinner at Chez Pump and Go was nice touch.

I'm appalled at Jody! How dare any person deceive someone, especially my Tara. Shame on you for still being married. You told her you loved her and she loved you. What the hell? How could you not tell Tara you're still married? How dare you try to turn Tara into a mistress. Tara, I really feel for you. I actually thought he was good guy. But the silver lining is that his ugly side has been exposed.What can I say, the Matt and Courtney kiss has finally happened. Finally! It was interesting to see Matt put so much time and effort into this trip. In all honesty, when I'm traveling with a friend I don't put a lot of time into planning. I usually press a button. But I have to give Matt a lot of credit for putting this together. Matt showed his sweet side instead of his player side. He even got Courtney a room of her own. I only hope Matt treats Courtney with the respect she deserves.

On a final note, I hope you everyone enjoyed the first season of Most Eligible Dallas. I hope everyone has enjoyed the show. Remember to follow me on Twitter @drewginsburg and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/drewkginsburg.
