'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: A handsome hookup in Hawaii

Season 4 | Episode 1 | “Young & Hawaii” | Aired Jun 1, 2016

For someone who knows how to cook, Young & Hungry’s Gabi sure hasn’t mastered the recipe for not only finding but maintaining a healthy relationship. A healthy meal? Sure. But a stable relationship with Josh? Forget about it. Those two can’t seem to stoke more than a low boil.

Seeing as Young & Hungry has proven that you can take the mess out of the kitchen, but you can’t take the mess out of the chef, it doesn’t appear as though Gabi and Josh will get it together any time soon. Until they definitively answer “will they or won’t they,” let’s revel in their fresh catches of the week. Because we know they have a few more disastrous dates in them while their relationship preheats.

Gabi meets her catch of the week 35,000 feet in the air. Picking up where season 3 left off, Gabi finds herself on a plane to Australia, ready to commit to Josh. But who else happens to be on board? Josh and his therapist. The therapist he kissed. Not exactly the travel companion you want your ex-boyfriend to have when you’re prepared to confess your love.

After Gabi cries to Sofia via FaceTime, a jilted cutie named Adam (Tyler Ritter) offers her a proposition she can’t refuse: Pretend to be his wife on his Hawaiian honeymoon and reap the benefits. Take the deal! It’s better than being stranded in a different country, even if it is the land of the Hemsworths. Make the most of your layover, Gabi.

When they arrive at the couples resort (cheekily dubbed Flip Flops), the “mutually devastated strangers” concoct a plan to make Adam’s ex-fiancée jealous via Instagram, though it sounds more like Gabi wants to exact Instagram revenge on Josh. Fortunately and unfortunately, their social-media moxie is a little too convincing.



Meanwhile, Gabi isn’t the only one scheming her way to a free vacation in Hawaii. Elliott, Alan, and Yolanda cheat the couples-exclusive system of Flip Flops to score three complimentary nights at the luxurious resort. They successfully pretend to be a “throuple,” to the delight of the couple-hungry resort, albeit with the aid of copious amounts of whisky and a willingness to forget.

Gabi might need to borrow the throuple’s bottle of whisky when Adam’s ex-fiancée shows up in Hawaii to reclaim her relationship … but mostly to punch Gabi square in the face. Ouch. The punch jostles her feelings around just in time for Josh to casually drop by the island to announce that he wants to be with Gabi. Again. Do we believe him?

Honestly, it’s becoming taxing to root for Gabi and Josh. They try and try hard to make their attraction and connection translate into an actual thriving relationship. But when we see Gabi hit it off with Adam, it’s difficult to care about Josh’s wishy-washy feelings. Today he wants to be with Gabi, but what about tomorrow? What about when he finds out Gabi and Adam kissed?

Josh gets them a room with a view, and guess where it is? Right next door to Adam and his newly reconciled fiancée. Meaning, the Hawaii shenanigans are far from over, and Josh still has time to rescind his feelings. Alas, the vicious, vicious circle of Gabi and Josh. Maybe the show has tapped the push-and-pull romance well dry, or maybe Gabi’s catches of the week are actually showing Gabi that there are other fish in the sea.

What do you think, Youngries? Can Gabi and Josh make it work or are they irreparably doomed? Sound off in the comments.

Young & Hungry airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Freeform.
