Renee and Karen are meeting at Karen’s boyfriend’s sound studio. We are reminded that Storm has been working with new artists and that Karen is happy to be with him in NYC especially now that her daughter is ready to make the move there from Arizona. Renee’s cheshire grin over Natalie’s “tuck tail and run behavior” probably outshines my own… no, wait, it does not. I am STILL loving it! The two women are shocked that Drita and Big Ang took Natalie’s side over Renee’s since they’ve known Natalie (mouth-full-of) “Marbles” for so short a period of time and that they’ve known Renee for so long. Karen promises that it won’t happen for Drita to “crack Renee’s head” as she promised. Renee, in a TH, utters a line that is too perfect to have not been scripted. She says that Drita can crack her head for something she’s said, not something a crackhead said. Uh, BAM!

Natalie Marbles and London are at lunch. Natalie goes in on Karen and her father and says that being Sicilian, that she doesn’t associate with “rats” and “murderers.” Her attacks on Karen seem more personal, to me, than someone who has a simple beef on social media. She is going for the jugular, especially knowing that Karen isn’t around. She makes more threats to confront Karen and there seems to be some confusion between Marbles and London about what Storm actually said to him. Karen described it as a conversation between two men that became a report of being threatened with death when things actually ended well. Marbles sees it as a threat on their lives. London seems to see it as just the way Storm talks. Marbles thinks that Karen is living off of her father’s legacy. I’m wondering if she remembers why SHE was cast and what she has been bragging about being part of HER legacy. Seriously?

Renee and Drita meet and talk about their disagreement and Renee tells Drita that she didn’t say what Natalie claimed she said. She apologizes for the things she did say.  Dritaand Renee make peace, but then Drita asks Renee to do the same and sit down and have a conversation with Natalie Marbles, to make peace. Renee tells her that she would let Drita punch her in the face before making peace with Natalie

Later, when Big Ang talks about a party she’s throwing – to which Renee is not invited, Karen reminds them that they know NOTHING of Natalie, her family, where she’s from, who she is.  She shows them the attacks Natalie made against her on social media, and that she called the cops on her and her boyfriend.  The “dirty name” of “cop-caller” is thrown around. Drita says she can’t hang out with a “cop caller” because she’s usually throwing the first punch. So true. Karen throws the surreal line that when you hang out with trash (cop callers) you become trash.

Renee learns she can’t register a new car because her son has more than 3K in fines. She wants to know how he’ll be able to pay the fines and why he is now keeping secrets from her. While on the phone with a friend, the friend notes the disruption Junior brought into her son’s life and that he is now hiding things from her as a result. Renee goes to pay the fines, but not before expressing her fears that AJ will end up doing something stupid to try to get the money he needs to pay fines and end up in jail. I hope not because other than his frustration with his mother, he has been a pretty level headed kid who seems to have a bright future ahead of him. I hope it’s just her fear talking.

Drita and Natalie meet.  The question of who is a “cop caller” comes up.  Drita seems stunned when Natalie retaliates with the comment that Karen has some nerve since her father is a federal agent.  Natalie denies ever calling the cops and insists that London and Storm are still at odds.  Drita is confused about who is telling the truth.  Having watched Nataliein action, I’m inclined to believe Karen.

Renee is meeting with AJ and reiterates her commitment to making sure her son doesn’t take a wrong turn. AJ is initially disrespectful but then apologizes. Too late, Renee feels that spending time with his grandfather will teach him about being more than spoiled; it will teach him how to become responsible and learn to respect her. AJ does not look pleased, but he has also stopped fighting with her.

Mob Wives S5

Karen and Storm are together and she lets him know what Natalie is claiming. Storm tells Karen he was introduced to London by a promoter at a party, who thought they knew each other. They talked, and even exchanged numbers – something I would never do with someone I thought wanted to take me out. The couple plan to go to Big Ang’s Drunken Monkey party and Karen warns Storm that she has no plans to fight, but if she is taken out of character, he’d better have bail money. His response? “All Day.” Natalie should stay home, in my opinion. 

It’s the night of the party and Ang tells Natalie that Karen and Storm are coming. She’s full of fight – in a TH. She tells Ang that Karen is a rat, which doesn’t sit well with Ang, who doesn’t think that Karen should be faulted for her father’s actions. Ang is not happy that Natalie won’t let it go. Drita shows up. She is hoping for confirmation of Natalie’s story but ends up warning Nat to stop attacking families or bad things are going to happen. Big Ang and Drita look stunned as Natalie continues going in. In walks KarenDrita looks scared, for Natalie.

Mob Wives S5

Natalie is talking big in THs, but running when Karen shows up. London walks up to Storm and they talk like old friends. Drita notices. Natalie walks up as Storm says to London that there shouldn’t be problems between people who don’t know each other and he’s not into talking about people he doesn’t know. Natalie turns that into an insult against her. London and Natalie fight when she feels that London betrayed her – yeah, that also happened outside, not in front of StormLondon feels he kept Natalie safe and kept the peace. Natalie turns Storm’s words into a threat against her.  He never even looked in her direction when talking to London about not having beef with strangers. 

Mob Wives S5

Drita has to stop Natalie from confronting Storm now that she has turned the peace between the men into an attack on her. I’m telling you, she has COMPLETELY rewritten the peaceful conversation between them. Drita is telling Natalie to stop trying to get in the middle of men’s business when Karen decides to check out what’s going on.

Mob Wives S5

They are outside when Marbles snaps. Karen tells her she doesn’t allow people to talk to her that way. She asks Karen who the **** is she. The response? KAREN! WHA’??? The show ends just as the fight begins.

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.

    AWESOME recap Norrth Cafe! You let it rip, Norrth! Thank you! 🙂
    It’s ONLY the second episode & it’s already gotten crazier! Talk about intense! 😮
    Karen! Big Ang! Marbles! WHO will be the one coming out of this season alive?!

    • Norrth

      LOL! It does feel like a late season episode, doesn’t it?!?!? WOW! it’s just terrible how bad Marbles has made this show, already. Now I’m waiting for the other Natalie to come in and take her down a peg. I see Big Ang and Drita not liking the “rat” comments Marbles keeps throwing out. Maybe one of them brought the new Natalie in to tame, or at least replace, the other one.

      • fred

        but he is the biggest rat of all time

  • Get out

    Ugh, Marbles. What a big mouth. I was surprised about AJ, for all Renee’s craziness, she has always tried to keep him on the straight and narrow. I wasn’t aware her Dad was out of prison, I thought JR put him away for a long time??
    Thanks for the recap!!

  • Excellent recap Norrth! You nailed the episode to a tee. Natalie is clearly on something in 99% of her scenes. It’s sad too because she’s a young woman with a child. Karen will knock some sense into her. I noticed Drita quickly backed off of Renee….interesting that Karen comes to town and “Billy bad ass” calms down. What I noticed in life is REAL badasses move in silence. Drita….#GirlBye

  • Lol, Marbles, excellent! I’m scared for London, she’s gona stab him one night. Run London.
    I’m so disgusted with AJ, I thought he respected his mom? He’s acting like a fool. Renee needs to cut him off sorry to say. At 20yrs old he’s in this much trouble & cant pay his own bills. It’s just gona get worse. Renee had to put up w/JR now AJ is abusing her. Sad for her.

      Hi Hollywood. I really don’t see what London sees in Natalie. She must be exhausting to be around. Who would want to deal with that sniping 24/7? I guess that’s why he won’t marry her. I feel for her son. She comes across as very immature & somewhat unstable. Not good qualities for a parent to show their kids.

      • Babson_Chick

        HI Tiger!! She most be great at “Under the Covers” work.

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

          LMFAO! Ahem, that’s model Babs. Wink-wink! (>‿◠)✌

    • Babson_Chick

      They sure like to spoil their sons (Ang also) and it doesn’t help them at all.

    • Norrth

      I’m afraid Natalie is going to write a check London can’t cash. Poor London thought he was keeping her safe and you can’t with her. She’s too determined to prove she’s tough, even if she starts a fight she can’t win (and neither can he). I can’t see why he’s attracted to her.

  • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

    Thanks Norrth. Love the recap. Didn’t have a chance to watch but this recap sounds so good maybe I should take a look.
    imho. Marbles is like a yappy little dog. Always lookin’ to start some ish she can’t finish. Little girl you are playing with the big dogs. Best be careful. You latch onto the wrong ankle & clamp down a little too hard? You are gonna find yourself dropped kicked back to obscurity in Philly.
    Quinn who? Peggy who? Cindy who? Deshawn who? Ana who? Icould go on & On but I think you get the idea.

    AJ? WTH? Come on Dude, that’s your Moms. Shame on you. Really disappointed. SMH.

    The constant brawling? The this one’s a ‘rat’ BS. The ‘cop caller’ crappola. I’m tired of it.
    What are you people 2?
    GTFU already!
    Walk away from the drama.
    Remove yourself.
    Who gives 2 chits what Natalie has to yap on & on & on about. The guys quashed any possible beef. Everyone knew Natalie was just looking to stir the pot. No one was biting & then Karen or Drita, (Who I thought had changed for the better, but apparently not.), has to let ego & reputation get the better of her.
    Natalie is not worth anyone’s time or effort. When she had that TH last week, (I think?), when she was telling Drita & Big Ang that Renee’ had called Drita a ‘rat’. At the very end she smiled this evil little smile & I knew right then & there that she was exactly what you shows you to be. A chit-starter. Haven’t you ladies learned anything in all you life experiences? You ignore & rise above. You never feed the troll. Everybody who knows you knows it’s not true & who cares what the people who don’t know you think? There are much bigger things in life that should be focused on. Your family, your friends, your work, your health. Leave the drama to the Drama Queens!

    Okay rant over. Sorry. lol

    • Babson_Chick

      Nat is enough to make anyone rant!!

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Thanks Babs. Glad to see I’m not alone. lol

        • Babson_Chick

          You’re welcome & never alone!!!

    • Norrth

      LOL, she is yappy! Storm is such a huge man. I think Natalie knew he would never hit her so she felt safe playing tough girl with him. Why not go after Karen? That woman has, to say the least, a unique perspective on events

  • Babson_Chick

    Great recap which is hard to do with this group of “bitches”. Almost skipped this epi after last week’s show which was nothing but bitch or fing bitch which really got old. Wish they’d close the bridge off to Marbles – just keep her in Philly.

      • Norrth

        So perfect!

    • Norrth

      I cannot believe the way she is able to rewrite an entirely benign conversation. Those men were behaving like old friends. Marbles turned it into a knife fight. I was waiting for her to claim that Storm dragged her into a closet and tagged her with a sock full of rocks.

  • Trippinhhard

    Excellent recap —thank you I don’t watch any longer, same drama and its lost its appeal to me.. I liked Drita at one time, but when she forgave Lee and talked all that bad girl BS..
    She’s just another mobster wifey, that eat shit with a shovel..
    Renee poor Renee always something going on with her

  • fred

    cant stand Karen but storm looks like a good guy
