'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: The hurricane-force winds of change

Season 4 | Episode 2 | “Young & Hurricane” | Aired Jun 8, 2016

What was the missing ingredient in Gabi’s Hawaiian hookup mess? An actual hurricane to symbolize the rabid chaos swirling around Young & Hungry. Gabi’s latest Josh-related controversy began with a chance meeting on an airplane, continued with an unplanned kiss, and will end in heartbreak. But who’s heart will break?

For one, Elliott’s heart temporarily breaks after Alan fails to save his life during high tide. Nearly swallowed by the sea, Elliott laments having to be saved by Yolanda — of all people — rather than his own husband. Alan once again doesn’t save Elliott’s life while he’s choking on a chunk of pineapple during a disagreement. Instead, Alan misreads his signs for the Heimlich maneuver as aggressive gesticulations, and Yolanda steps in to save Elliott.

When the hurricane reaches its highest impact, and the vacationers of Flip Flops must retreat to the basement, Elliott is nowhere to be found. This time, Yolanda is more worried about losing her wig than caring for Elliott. Alan makes it his mission to find and protect his husband, and after an awkward encounter with their concierge, that’s exactly what he does. And to think, all of this throuple drama was going on at the same time as Gabi’s neighbor nightmare.

No, Young & Hungry didn’t get into the crossover business with the Neighbors film franchise (although, Emily Osment and Zac Efron in the same production is the Disney Channel reunion we never knew we needed). But Gabi did get into some hot water by inadvertently rooming next door to Adam, her Instagram husband, with Josh. Get all that? Well, now that Gabi and Adam have kissed, bumping into each other out on their porches raises the stakes that much more.

Gabi and Adam try to keep the truth of their faked romance from their significant others, and it almost works until they plan to double date for dinner. Amanda, Adam’s fiancée with the killer right hook, has a few too many daiquiris and re-proposes to Adam. Being the stand-up guy we’ve known him to be for the past episode, he spills the truth: He might have feelings for Gabi … because they kissed.

Even though he’s initially upset, Josh resolves to get over it, realizing that he’s been an idiot this entire time. (Uh, you think?! The only person who has made this relationship more difficult than Gabi is you, Josh!) He’s fully ready to dive back into their relationship and their bed, but he rushes to procure a survival kit in the lobby. Meanwhile, Adam finds himself stranded on Gabi’s porch in his underwear. Casual.

As expected, Josh doesn’t believe Gabi when she says that Adam hiding in their bathroom in a bathrobe means nothing. Because why would he give Gabi the benefit of the doubt? (In his defense, which I will not come to often, Gabi does have a history of withholding the truth and catching crushes on extracurricular cuties. But their relationship has never even been exclusive, so we’re right back where we started.)

Hurricane Olivia has her own plans and forces the resort to evacuate underground. Josh decides to fume in the thick of the storm instead of seeking refuge, which leads Gabi to fight with him in the fierce winds and literally blow away. (Aside: Did anyone else have flashbacks to Fran and Val getting trapped in a hurricane on The Nanny? No? Just me? Okay. Let’s resume.)

Eventually, Gabi confesses that she kissed Adam because they had fun, and it was easy to spend time with him. They didn’t argue, they didn’t battle, they didn’t overthink. They simply coasted on their chemistry, something Gabi and Josh could never do with relative ease. When the winds miraculously end, so does their romantic, personal, and working relationship. Gabi and Josh: from zero to 100.

What do you think, Youngries? Will Josh come around and work on their relationship, or will Gabi find a new job and a new love interest? Sound off in the comments.

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