TOTAL BELLAS ON THE E NETWORK
Here is the synopsis for tonight's show.
A problem in the bedroom causes Brie and Bryan to take out their frustrations on each other; a bored Nicole comes up with an idea to help them out of their dry spell.
In case, You missed the series debut last week. Nikki has a serious neck injury. She asks her sister and brother in law to move in, to her and John Cena's house to help her in recovery. Also joining them in their home is Nikki's mom and fiancé, John Laurinaitis and Nikki's brother JJ. John Cena laid down some serious house rules for his guests. It led to conflict with Brie and Bryan nearly leaving the house. Oh yeah and also, John Cena got bit by their dog. Along the way, Brie admitted to everyone in the house that she hasn't had sex with Daniel Bryan for about a month. That leads us into this episode.
This week's show opens with Brie and Nikki sitting together in John Cena's house. Brie starts off by saying that she loves having sex with her husband Daniel and that they love Kama Sutra. Nikki teases Brie. Brie says that it's been awhile since she and Bryan have been intimate.
We next cut to The Bellas having some drinks with Daniel at a local restaurant in Tampa. Nikki jokingly calls Bryan and Brie, "her b-----s". Bryan says he would prefer to be called her chauffeurs. Nikki then awkwardly transitions to asking Bryan if he has had sex lately. Which puts Brie in a state of shock, that her sister would casually bring that up. Nikki says that she knows that it's been a month because her sister told her. Bryan, as to be expected, is not very pleased with all of this. Nikki elaborates by telling Bryan that she was informed that he was unable to perform a "quickie" for Brie. Brie comes to her husbands defense. She explains that Daniel is very much into foreplay and being romantic. Bryan admits that he likes music and candles. He likes the setting to be more relaxed. Nikki teases Bryan and Brie for being people who love to prep everything.
We are now on the road with The Bellas and Bryan. Brie is asking Nikki what else she needs to do today. Nikki wants to fix her dress and shoes. Bryan says that he can't wait till they don't have to drive her around anymore. They get stuck in traffic temporarily and Brie and Bryan start arguing in the car. They are arguing about Bryan not taking the right path but it appears that there is some built up tension between the two. Nikki senses it. Bryan calls his wife annoying and offers to give her the wheel to start driving instead of him.
We next cut to The Cena mansion. The Bellas, Bryan and JJ are in the kitchen of the guest house. Brie is looking for coconut spray for Bryan's eggs. Nikki tells Brie that they need to do their own shopping. She says that she is on a strict calorie counting diet because she can't do any kind of workouts because of her injury. "Johnny", Mama Bella's fiancée enters the kitchen. The Bellas reveal to JJ that their mom has told them that Johhny and her will be eloping. The Bellas tell John Laurinaitis that they can't believe that they are eloping. Johnny says, Part of eloping is not telling anyone.... Kathy is then shown individually talking about her relationship with "Johnny". How she is 51 and he is 53 and they just want a simple eloping. Johnny is then shown sitting next to her and professes his love for her, by saying that he loves her infinity plus one...... Back to the guest house, JJ jokes that this is his Mom's 3rd marriage and that they should go to a law office when they elope. Kathy takes issue with her son speaking out that way against them.

John Cena agrees with Bryan's comment. John leaves to go work out. Bryan finds out that Brie had John help her learn to drive stick. Bryan gets upset because he wanted to teach his wife. Bryan says he has been driving stick his whole life. Brie doesn't see why Bryan is upset. She says that John is an expert at driving stick and he even did so in his own movie stunts. Brie tells Bryan that even though they missed out on doing this. They can go swimming together. As it turns out, Lexie is a great swimmer and is on a swim team. So Bryan turns the tables by asking her if she could teach him how to swim instead of Brie.... Well played. Brie pretends that this doesn't upset her but everyone notices the tension in the room.
Back from the break. We are at John Cena and Nicole's pool house. Lexie is teaching Bryan how to swim freestyle. Brie shows up poolside to lay out by the pool. JJ is on the scene and teases his sister. Brie gets in the pool to show her swimming skills. Everyone mocks her when she starts swimming. Lexie then teaches Bryan how to float. Brie jokes that Lexie has no problem floating because of her breast size. Bryan jokingly agrees. Brie calls him out on it and says that her husband probably thinks that Lexie's boobs are better than hers. Bryan says that he didn't say that. Tells his wife not to get jealous as she leaves the pool.
Back at the house. John Cena tells everyone that in junior high, He was a Mass Debater. He lived in Massachusetts and occasionally would debate his friends. This gets the family laughing.
