Sam calls Zara “miserable” for “constantly fucking” behind his back when he FINALLY hears about her affair with the X Factor
Sam Thompson and Zara McDermott’s ruined romance finally played out on Made In Chelsea on Monday night.
Even though fans already know all about this, we finally saw the drama unfold before our very eyes in the final episode.
There were dry tears, home truth … and what we did not know was revealed: Zara’s affair lasted more than one night. It was SEVERAL nights!
We start this episode by talking about how many times Jamie, Reza, and Sam have sex per week.
Not with each other – with your girlfriends.
Jamie wants this all the time. Hubbs doesn’t seem to want it that often. Reza pretends that less than once a day is unforgivable, but we can safely assume he’s trying to do it for the cameras, because Ruby doesn’t look like the type to be so helpful.
Sam is lucky if it happens once a week, which somewhat tragically foreshadows what will happen to him later in the episode.
In the village, Verity splashes around Charlie in the pool like a frisky trout. Despite his horrible flat hairstyle, she decides to kiss him.
Zara and Ruby come to dinner with Hubbs and Jamie, and desolation reigns in the air.
She reveals that she cheated on Sam with the X Factor floor manager [or someone else] a year ago when she was part of the popular No Love Lost sensation with Wes Nelson [who doesn’t have date time now because he was a millionaire before how he turned 21], former West End megastar Samira Mighty [who once spoke to Chris Pine] and Eyal Booker [who once went to MTV Cribs to show the one-room studio apartment he rents with his brother in Hoxton] …
Jamie is angry about the deception and leaves, vowing his loyalty to Sam.
Zara then insists that she didn’t tell Sam before because she would rather “eat me alive” than hurt Sam, which is actually pretty frustrating to be honest.
It turns out that the reason he showed up was because someone they knew told Sam [perhaps the X-factor auto-suggestion operator?]
Ruby speaks for the first time (she clearly knew this since November of last year!) And tells Zara that she needs to forgive herself before asking Sam to forgive her, which is certainly further proof that she and Reza don’t have sex every day. …
Meanwhile, Sophie is on another date with Will, who ALLOWS HIS TAGLIATELLA!
In an attempt to look continental, he wears a colorful scarf and shows off his career on the Milan runways.
“I went to the show,” he says. Sophie wants to know what shows. Everyone had it.
“Versace, Dolce & Gabbana …” he says, trying to remember some of the Italian fashion brands.
“I drank with Domenico Dolce!” Sophie declares. ‘I’m not surprised!’ Will replies, panicking in case she pulls out her phone, calls Domenico and asks him if he remembers Will.
Paris loves to paint surreal portraits. Of course he does.
Emily asks for an example of this, to which Paris says “Scream” [Edvard Munch, 1893] that he is actually an expressionist, so she was embarrassed there.
Fortunately, Emily takes a break from this little oversight by asking if Paris is drawing “horrible things,” presumably thinking Scream was written by Drew Barrymore or Courteney Cox in 1996.
Sam meets with Jamie to discuss the situation with Zara, and states that he “has no strength to drop it” because he “can’t be alone.”
It is worrying that in modern life we have reached a stage where even when our partner is cheating on us, the prospect of returning to Hinga or socially distant dating is the greater of two evils.
Jamie calls Zara a “lying, lying puppy” and tells Sam that he is not interested in her.
Liv throws a birthday party in the style of the Great Gatsby, but few of them actually put in the effort.
Charlie and Verity are not invited, so they have to sit at a wrought iron table in another house.
“I don’t want to be at a party with someone I disagree with,” Verity insists, as if she’d decided not to give up on the choice.
The next morning, at breakfast, Liv tells James and Maeva that she kissed Tristan, and James suggests that they will all take a bath together.
“You’re such a pervert,” Maeva says, misusing a noun instead of an adjective.
At that moment Verity appears. It would seem that she was not invited to the party, but was allowed to come to the post-party breakfast.
She asks if she can talk to Liv, to which Maeva replies, “Yes, but when will I finish my oeufs!
It is also allowed to return to Charlie’s quarters, who asks to talk to Tristan about their “beef” [or “Boeuf” Maeva].
It’s all a little territorial and chubby, and then there is a weird twist when they aggressively compliment each other on how tall / big / muscular he is.
Back in sad, sad London, Sam and Zara meet on a bench and try to discuss everything. We learn that Zara didn’t just cheat once, she appeared to be “shabby” and “constantly fucked” this X Factor floor manager / auto-prompt operator / person who drives the participants’ buses around the country in the final week.
Zara cries, but no tears appear. Sam then tells her that he can’t be with her and leaves her curled up on a park bench like a grief-stricken vagrant.
