EEEEEK! Gabi and Josh sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g! Seriously, I’ve been waiting for this episode since the season started!
Gabi finally chose Josh over Cooper, but a lot happened for her to actually get there. We picked up after last weeks moment of clarity- Josh realized he’s been sleeping around with half the city because he actually loves Gabi. He decides to head over to her place to let her know before Cooper gets back from Japan. When he arrives, Cooper is already back and Gabi is totes excited about it, even rocking a barely there nightgown. Awkward. As she’s changing Coop reveals that he knows Josh loves Gabi but that she chose him anyways.
Josh leaves, but eventually blurts out “I love you” when Gabi is bringing him lunch. It’s definitely not the best timing but it had to be said. I’m so glad that after weeks of tiptoing around the fact, Josh finally got the balls to tell her the truth. Obviously, Gabi doesn’t take it well and her emotions range from acceptance to questioning ‘why now’? Honestly, guys have a radar and just when your getting happy they decide to screw it all up. It’s a proven theory.
She gets home and tells Sofia that she doesn’t feel anything for Josh, so obviously, both Cooper and Sofia think they’re off the hook in telling Gabi that Josh actually came to tell her weeks ago before she went to Japan. But… suddenly Gabi begins having dreams of Josh and she’s not certain what they mean.
A sit down with Elliots bea Alan tells her what she needs to do- she has to find out which kiss makes her toes curl. She marches over to Josh’s and kisses him. And cue the best moment in Young & Hungry history. He runs after her, pushes her against the wall and makes out with her. And obviously, Gabi is as giddy as can be because duh, she really loves Josh. She turns to Yolanda for advice, but all she tells her is follow your heart and ride the washing machine… which actually isn’t horrible advice.
At the opening of Alan’s karaoke bar, he proposes to Elliot and he thankfully says yes. Woot woot, Elliot is engaged! This makes Gabi realize that she loves Josh and she tells him inside the sound system booth. And in the most cliche way, everyone hears her choose Josh because she “accidentally” turned the speakers on. Cooper doesn’t take the news well, ratting Josh out to Gabi. He tells her that Josh also loved her a couple of weeks ago, but got over it and made everyone- Yolanda, Elliot and even Sofia lie to her. This seems a little extreme however. Cooper made it sound like Josh has been indecisive and jumping in and out of feelings for Gabi, but it’s not like that. He had everyone keep it a secret because she was happy and he didn’t want to ruin it. He was scared, he didn’t know if she’d like him back and the timing was off. It wasn’t because he suddenly didn’t love her.
But, of course, Gabi is upset that everyone kept this from her… especially her BFF Sofia. Now that’s betrayal. So until next week, Josh and Gabi aren’t on speaking term. I’m sure that will change though the minute she realizes Josh’s good intentions. I’ve got to say, I’m so glad we’re finally getting rid of Cooper. He was so boring and never stood a chance!
