It’s Christmas Eve at Cloud 9 and everyone is going through changes.
Glenn is trying to convince Mateo that Christmas is a magical time. Jonah & Garrett’s roommate issues are getting worst, and Amy loses it over Adam’s new girlfriend.
It all starts when Amy calls her ex to have him confirm a story about the car she stole back in high school. She hears a woman’s voice on the other line and starts freaking out. It doesn’t help that, in an effort to prove she’s fun, she spikes the hot chocolate that Glenn got for Mateo and gets hammered at work. After sufficiently googling Adam’s new girlfriend, she decides to go over to her house with Cheyenne & Dina to confront Adam. When they get there however, she realizes that this was a terrible plan and wants to make a break for it. Unfortunately, the shopping cart scooters they took to this house are out of battery and need to be recharged – and to add insult to injury, they get spotted by Adam & the skank. JK I hate calling women derogatory terms like that, she’s lovely & Adam is allowed to date. They have an extremely awkward evening but on their way out the vandalize her lawn ornaments and decorations so #YayCrazyAmy.
In other news, when Mateo says that he’s lukewarm about Christmas, Glenn does everything in his power to show him the magic of the season and make him fall in love with it again. There are a series of extremely unsuccessful events but at the very end, Glenn turns on the Christmas lights in the store and Mateo is really moved by the beauty and the magic, which he’ll never admit of course.
Lastly, Jonah and Garrett are finding it impossible to get along now that they live & work together. They spend the episode giving each other passive aggressive gifts and throwing jabs at the other’s way of life. Jonah bonds with Kelly over how annoyed he is at Garrett while realizing he might be a bad roommate. They bond TOO MUCH and end up going to her place together on Christmas Eve. This would all be fine – yay for 2 consenting adults getting their pleasure – but then at the end, after the Christmas lights come on, Amy is looking for Jonah to share the magic with him BUT HE’S GONE!
