In tonight's Vanderpump Rules Season 2, Episode 3 recap, Jax Taylor takes his pursuit of Stassi Schroeder on the road, as the gang stays with Stassi's mom in Arrowhead. Let's take a look at tonight's top five craziest moments. And don't even try to offer us a bottle of wine with a screw-on top.
5. Lisa is skeptical of Scheana's many, many injuries
Lisa Vanderpump's hands are a little less full this week, as most of her SUR staffers have ventured out to Lake Arrowhead. But Lisa still stays busy, between meeting with a somewhat-sleazy wine salesman — no screw-on tops, dude! — to telling Scheana that her latest eye injury is a bit suspicious.
4. Stassi's mom grills Jax
If Jax thought meeting up with Stassi's dad last week was bad... well, meeting up with her dad was bad. But getting the third degree from her mom is no walk in the park either, as she questions Jax's motives for wanting Stassi back. If only all of Stassi's relatives could be as forgiving as her surprisingly wise brother Nikolai, who beats Jax at video games and then offers him dating advice. Watch your back, Dr. Drew.
3. Jax shows Stassi the tat
Jax finally shows Stassi the tattoo of her signature on his arm, and shockingly, she's flattered rather than completely creeped out, which she probably should be. We agree with Tom that getting your ex's name permanently etched on your skin is not a solid plan.
2. Tom tries to talk to Kristen — but Katie won't have it
Kristen has been criticizing Tom throughout the trip, but it's too much for Tom when — after coming back from the bar — she tells him they don't kiss enough before bed. When he tries to talk to her in front of the other girls, Katie gets into a huge fight with him and kicks him out of the room. Finally, Tom and Kristen patch things up after his band's concert, but Jax might be right about them just needing to break up already.
1. Jax and Stassi kiss! Sorta!
No one can accuse Jax of not being persistent. While reminiscing with Stassi in the spare room about how they used to sleep on this very same bed, Jax asks for a hug, which Stassi reluctantly permits. Then, he pushes his luck by asking for a kiss. He claims that he won't beg for it, but he kinda does, although it pays off when he finally gets an on-the-lips peck. Perhaps beggars can be choosers.
