It’s time for the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 8 midseason teaser trailer, as if there wasn’t enough drama in the latest episodes with Natalya Scudder leaving the boat and Kyle Viljoen side-stepping termination. Jessika Asai is getting cozy with Luka Brunton, despite everyone’s better judgment – including her own.
There is still drama with charter guests to come, and adventures at sea. Captain Sandy Yawn takes issue with how the deck team is being managed, and the interior crew starts to fall apart as Natalya’s replacement is seemingly incompetent at her job.
Certainly, Natalya leaving did not ensure tranquility with the rest of the team. There’s plenty of unresolved drama to go around.
New stew drama, hookups galore, and unruly charter guests still to come
Perhaps the most pressing question for Below Deck Med Season 8 viewers is if Kyle can manage the rest of the season without creating more chaos. But it seems that he does make it to the end, or at least until the point that Natalya joins the crew on a night out. What is the purpose of her visit and will anything be resolved?
We get confirmation that Luka is a f*ck boy. It’s indicated in the editing that he is communicating with a girl on Instagram and that they have a mutual friend in Katie Flood.
“Is that your girlfriend texting you?” Captain Sandy is heard asking the bosun.
As if anyone needed that rude awakening except Jessika, who seemingly couldn’t even wait for Natalya to leave the boat before moving in on her crush.
“I think I like Luka way more than I should,” she said in a confessional.
Jessika also kisses Max Salvador in the trailer and tells the new stew, “Sorry Lill, he’s a good kisser. Just saying.”
The new stew isn’t working
Max is crushing on Lily Davison, and she’s terrible at her job. To the point that Sandy will only give her, “one more chance” to prove herself.
Tumi Mhlongo adds, “I’ve given her more than enough, and she’s just not getting it.”
“I can’t trust her down there. There’s like towels all over the floor,” Jessika complained of Lilly’s poor turndown.
“My interior team is definitely hanging on by a thread,” Tumi said to the camera.
In a following clip, she also stated, “I really can’t be handling men in their 30s.” Could she be speaking about Kyle or an unruly charter guest?
“I thought I was f*cking crazy. But this is chaotic,” Tumi said before the teaser introduces a problem charter guest who is taking on too much alcohol.
“You have to get him under control. Otherwise, he’s off the boat,” Captain Sandy is seen telling another charter guest.
Lots to come then. It’s been a season that’s delivered, and the conclusion seems to be just as exciting.
