On this week’s episode of the Real World: Austin, the focus of the show returned to the budding relationship of Danny and Melinda. The focus had drifted away from it last week, but this week the episode could have been the Danny and Melinda show.
This week, we see Melinda going out and having fun, while Danny is home alone still recovering from his eye surgery. He can’t go out quite yet, and he feels a bit awkward with his appearance now following the surgery. Him not being able to join his girlfriend is appearing to cause problems for the young couple.
Melinda wants more, but she can tell Danny is hesitant when it comes to the relationship. She is willing to give him space as she tells one of the roommates, Wes, but she also expresses her concern when Danny decides to go out with the rest of the guys for a guys night out once his stitches are removed. She worries about him kissing another girl.
When Melinda goes out, her every thought is of Danny back home; but when Danny goes out, his attention is to a female he meets at the bar they all go to. He takes her number, but refuses to kiss her on the lips as she requests with a simple shake of his head.
This guys night out brings Danny home after one too many, and Melinda is the one that sits with him when he gets sick. I’m not really sure where this relationship is going to go. Melinda is the party girl, but she misses Danny when she does go out. Could this be a sign of a future change in the party girl? I’m not sure. It’ll be interesting to see how this relationship continues to play out.
