Alternate Titles for the post: Just Choose Already People, Brandon is Not Getting Enough Screen time, Stop Saying Sake Like That Hagood!

I'll get to the episode recap after going through nearly an hour of poor communication skills on how you feel, what you want, etc.

Can we please get someone to sit down and explain basic human speaking patterns with this cast? Excluding Brandon and Hagood, the couples (Lyle/Catherine, Hannah/Louis, Lyle/Louis) need to figure out how to just speak to each other without passive-aggressive tension and with a clarity that both parties understand. Instead, we spent Episode 3 dealing with scene after scene of these people trying to figure out what place they were at in their respective relationship. I'm surprised I'm able to type this as I have a case of both whiplash and dizziness after being spinned around nonstop through these conversations. Not only that — they have the audacity to cut out Brandon for half the episode! You don't leave the MVP in the dugout!

Outside of the high school-level communication issues between the couples, Hagood — again — wrestled with her mother and I think I sided with the younger family member this time around. I'm not sure if her mother is playing it up for the camera and becoming a over-the-top Southern mom stereotype or if she is genuinely this passive aggressive but we will need some PR and a PSA to the rest of the nation to say the South can deal with their issues rather than taking subtle stabs at one another. Well, maybe that's a little much...

On the other front, the group headed out to Hagood's family farm in Darlington, S.C. where they took part in a nice oyster roast before turning up the heat to 200 degrees as we left the episode with Louis and Lyle in a tussle because they can't communicate (sensing a trend?) While violence wasn't the answer, I have to side with Louis here. Lyle wouldn't be able to enter a room if he were Pinocchio if fairy-tales were real and infiltrating the Southern Charm Savannah cast. Catherine isn't much help either as she continues to tease and believe there's a future there. Between the two wishful talks in both cars on the way to the farm, there needs to be a whole episode dedicated to a nice chat with a relationship professional to sort this drama out.
