As much as it pains me to say, welcome back to the finale recap of Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard Season 2. This week is the last installment, and if you were concerned they wouldn’t bring the heat, you thought wrong. The group still has to address the elephant in the room regarding Nick and the girls from the last episode. And once the dust settled, Amir had a few things to get off of his chest, too. We also lost one cast member two days early, halfway through last night’s episode, but according to them, it was all for their good. Despite this being the last regular season episode, we know there’s a heated reunion to look forward to. So, let’s get into it! Here’s everything that went down on the season finale of Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard Season 2, Episode 9: The Fall of Summer. 

Nick moves on with the rest of the house

The last episode ended with Nick going off on Bria, Shanice, Noelle, and (kind of) Natalie Cortes about repeating damaging rumors about him. In case you didn’t catch it, the girls said Nick can be too handsy when he’s drunk. Nick has a right to be annoyed by this conversation because he thought this situation was over. However, Natalie, Amir’s girlfriend, was trying to secure her spot for the next season. In doing so, she did entirely too much trying to bring Nick down. 

Eventually, the house moved on, and Nick apologized to the women for raising his voice. Noelle also showed a lot of grace and said sorry to Nick for how Natalie relayed her words to his girlfriend. Also, Shanice and Noelle clarified their comments, adding it was Natalie’s idea to bring it out on camera. Bria was somewhere else in the house, though, standing firm by what she said. 

The next day, the remaining partners, Natalie and Simon Marco, departed the house, giving the original cast of 10 some much-needed downtime before their vacation wrapped up. 

Later in the episode, Nick and Amir go golfing, and Nick told Amir that Bria, Shanice, and Noelle said Natalie started the drama the night before on her own. Amir admitted he was frustrated by the girls looping Natalie into it and said she wasn’t at fault. He said that since Natalie lives by the “girl-code,” she wanted to give Nick’s girlfriend a heads-up. Then he decided he needed to talk to Bria and the others to get to the bottom of what happened. 

Summer packed her bags to head home early

Over the last few weeks, Summer has talked about her healing journey in certain areas of her life. Consequently, she told Preston and Jordan privately that she felt it was best for her not to stay in the house. In her confessional, she told producers that pretending to be okay hasn’t been beneficial for her.

“I’m realizing that I can’t just pretend to be happy. I’m eager to heal the situations in my life that need to be addressed,” she said. “I want to be at home with my … family and my friends and just reset.” 

Jordan reassured her, saying that acknowledging her hurt would ultimately be good for her. “I would’ve liked her to stay to get to a better place with everybody,” she said in her confessional. “But if you gotta go, you gotta go.” 

The next day, she told the rest of her roommates about her plans. She started with Jasmine and Alex and went to find the rest of the women out by the pool. Before that, she tried to find Noelle, but she was lying in her bed away from the mess. From the edit, Jasmine texted Noelle to let her know that Summer would be leaving. “Are you gonna say goodbye?” the text read. “No,” Noelle replied. 

Summer then told Bria and Shanice that she was headed out, and Bria sent her with well wishes and ordered her to take a spiritual bath to cleanse the negative energy. In her final confessional, Summer said the chaos has allowed “expansion and growth.” 

“So, I don’t regret anything.”

When it was time for dinner, Amir asked Bria, Shanice, and Noelle about the conversation with Nick. Before it got too far into the conversation, Shanice said it didn’t really matter because the issue was dead. “It’s not dead, though,” Amir said.

Shortly after, things began escalating. Bria wasn’t raising her voice necessarily; she was just talking with a little extra emphasis. But it didn’t matter because Amir felt he was being yelled at. “Every time you chime in, you’re yelling,” he told her. “Leave me out of your girlfriend’s mess,” she replied. “How about that?” 

At this point, Nick jumped into the middle of things and said Bria needed to take responsibility and do some “self-reflection.” Jasmine encouraged Bria to count to 10, and as she was doing this, Nick said, “How old are we?” See. Nick, you could’ve sat there and been quiet. Now, Bria is about to unleash on you, and you’ll have nobody to blame but yourself.

Anyway, Bria answered his question, saying she was “10.” Actually, “10 and a half.” She continued, “How old are you? Nick Arrington, everyone,” she said while clapping mockingly like Nick is some big-time executive at Bravo. “Whatever, Urkel,” she said, referencing the ’90s show Family Matters. 

She circled back to Nick’s point about reflecting and said it wasn’t her talking about Nick’s relationship. “It was brought up from his broad,” Bria added, pointing to Amir. “Like, get the f*ck out of here. What do you think this is? Hold responsibility for your girl, bro,” she said. Amir popped back, and it’s that shocking moment from the trailer we’ve been waiting for. “STOP RAISING YOUR VOICE AT ME,” he screamed. “I don’t want to have this conversation anymore,” he said. “Because the only thing that I wanted was to know what was happening —” he said before Bria cut him off, saying, “And we told you.” Amir stormed out of the front door, slamming it behind him before yelling, “GOD DAMN.” 

Bye, bye, bye to the Vineyard

After the blowup on Day 13, the cast put things behind them for Days 14 and 15. Ultimately, the episode ended on a high note, with the crew having a fancy dinner on the beach, drinking expensive alcohol, and playing a fun game of impersonations. 

The group gathered in the truth booth one last time, and it was the kiki we know and love. 

“Martha, girl, we were lit this summer,” Jasmine said. “We came, we saw, we conquered, and we are still figuring this sh*t out.” 

Bye, Martha (for now). We’re manifesting a third season is already in the works. 

The Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard Season 2 reunion airs Sunday, May 26 on Bravo.
