It was finally time for episode two of 'The Real World Homecoming' and after the premiere episode, we were so ready for more. Now that the six roomies know where they are staying and have slightly settled in, it was time to start getting back into action. Eric is still in quarantined in his hotel room but is requesting daily testing. He wants to get back to the loft for at least one day to see his old housemates. The first test we saw him take was still positive so he decided to take an ice bath. He has been working with shamans and such so he is very in touch with his body so he will do whatever must be done to rid himself of Covid.
At the loft, Heather still has a lot of work she does on the daily. She hosts three shows every day and it does not stop just because she is back on the show. Everyone is impressed with her hustle and she is reflecting with Kevin. They were opposites back in 1992. He grew up without a dad and was working for Vibe while she went to a private school, had both of her parents, and had a record deal. Now, they have reconnected over the years and have a good understanding of each other they never had as young kids.
A cool moment is when Heather and Julie are in the confessional and Julie reminds Heather the camera is still rolling. They never had a confessional in 1992 so there is no safe space. Norman gets attacked by the shower but Becky is complaining about the noise in her luxury suite. They have quirks that are really grating on one another. As adults who've opted to do this reunion, they've grown used to being on their own. So, it is taking a lot to not run when they cannot sleep because someone is too loud or snoring or invading their space.
Eric zooms in because they sent him a care package and Becky plays a song. She reveals she was visited by the spirit of John Lennon in college and he came while she was in the loft back in 1992. This is crazy to everyone but Eric. Then, they get an incoming message. It is footage of a fight she and Kevin had about race. They try to resolve it now, in 2021, but no one feels Becky is really listening to him. Some might say he is never listening to anyone but himself. Maybe they have not really changed at all.
