Previously on The Bad Girls Club: Though tensions were high between the likes of Briana & Francesca and Keyaira & Kiyanna (both resulting in fights), the focus shifted to emotionally building up Sayyora and Seven & Keyaira preparing to perform in Las Vegas as a DJ and rapper respectively.
Episode 9 – Sin City Showdown
Picking up right where the previous episode left off, all the girls are celebrating the trip to Vegas to come. The next day arrives and the girls hit the road, visiting a dinosaur park, and Keyaira making Deshayla her hypeman for the show. When they arrive in Vegas, Keyaira decides that she, Seven & Deshayla needs the four-bed room for them; causing a minor argument that could set the stage for something bigger later. But none of that pettiness matters because Key & Seven are on their grind; promoting the event and Key getting a custom-made hat created by Deshayla for Keyaira. While Seven & Key do their sound check, Kiyanna, Sayyora, Francesca & Briana take it upon themselves to hand out flyers for the show; meeting some interesting characters in the process.
Though there were a few problems with the sound check, everything is a go by show time (including Key’s Deshayla brand hat). Seven knocks out her DJ performance in grand fashion before Keyaira hits the stage and tears the house down. Even Key’s mom makes it to the show, but with an ulterior motive.
An incredible high is surpassed by a crushing low for Keyaira, but that doesn’t stop her from voicing her opinion about Briana being upset over leaving her city again after seeing her friends during this trip. Briana removes herself from the situation, but it soon moves inside the hotel when Keyaira overhears Briana commenting on what just happened. Key confronts Briana, putting her hand on her throat like she is ready to choke slam her. Briana don’t play that!
Security eventually gets between them and Kiyanna is so happy Briana accomplished what she couldn’t against Key.
Seven hears this bold statement from Kiyanna, looking to get a hold of her. Security is there to prevent another fight from happening while Key blames Briana for what went down. The next morning arrives and Keyaira drives home with Deshayla & Seven; taking the time to think about what went down and how Briana ran up on her. Am I hearing this right? Settling in after the trip back home, Key & Seven decide they are going to go one-on-one with Briana & Kiyanna respectively when they get home. It’s time for war and Key & Seven bring that heat to close this episode in explosive fashion.
Episode High(s): Hard Work Pays Off Again. Last week saw the announcement of Seven & Keyaira getting the opportunity to let Las Vegas see their talents in full form. This week was the culmination of a season’s worth of hard work for Key & Seven that paid off as hoped and, to a certain extent, expected. It’s great to see a series-long narrative pay off in grand fashion that actually puts Bad Girls in a good light.
Episode Low(s): Keyaira Getting it Twisted. There are always two sides to every story, but in the case of Key’s problems with Briana during this episode the prior instigated the situations that were to come. It definitely helped cap off the episode in an unexpected fashion, but for Key to get mad at someone for being homesick is just plain ridiculous.
Evictions: Susan (Episode 4)
B**** Counter (songs with the word used in them not counted): 18 times
Fight Counter (opening preview and near-fights not counted): 3
Favorite BG of the Week: Briana. As great of a moment it was for Key & Seven accomplishing a pair of dreams, seeing Briana step up yet again and walk away a winner is stunning. Very few Bad Girls have ever entered a season and had the hands to overcome everyone that steps to her. I don’t think I was the only one not expecting Briana to be able to talk as much as she does and back it up.
Pack Yo’ Bags: Keyaira. The girls are staying strong this season and it’s becoming tougher to really think who’s going to go too far or be broken in the process. Keyaira has a loss to avenge and, as seen at the end of the episode, is determined to prove Briana doesn’t have her number. While Seven was fighting too, Key has something to prove that could push her over the edge.
Episode Summary in Five Words or Less: Choked up, choked out.
