Perhaps the T in “GTL” should stand for testosterone.
It was clearly flowing as Jersey Shore's fourth season continued in Florence, Italy on Thursday, with an enraged Ronnie getting into a violent confrontation with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, after The Sitch’s big mouth came back to haunt him.
Here's how it all went down:
The honeymoon period for the recently-reunited Sam and Ronnie didn't last long, as the on-again, off-again lovers quarreled over Ronnie's flirtatious behavior towards other women during a club outing.
Eventually, when Sam revealed to Ron that The Situation had claimed Ronnie had invited "five girls" to the house, an enraged Ronnie did his best Incredible Hulk impression, ripping off his shirt as he fired on his "pal," shouting "I'm gonna f**k him up!"
Finding The Situation lying on a couch, the raspy-voiced muscleman lifted the couch itself, ordering a panicking Sam to tell The Situation the source of his anger.
"Tell him what you told me!" Ron yelled. "Tell him what the f**k you told me!"
Sam told The Situation, "You told me that Ronnie had five girls coming over. It was a few days ago. Don't you remember?" as the show flashed back to a clip confirming The Situation's loose-lipped folly.
Ronnie, with an appetite for destruction, went on a rampage in the The Situation's room, tossing out his bed, suitcases and anything that wasn't nailed down (not that that would have mattered in Ron's juiced-up, manic state).
"Ron, please? Don't be irrational, The Situation pleaded to no effect.
Seeing his possessions flying all over the house, an angry Situation cut a WWE-style promo on Ronnie.
"I don't get involved in your f**king relationship!" The Situation yelled. "You wanna hit me, tough guy? Hit me! Hit me!"
At that point, Ronnie tackled The Situation into the upright bed frame, and the episode ended on a violent cliffhanger. (The preview of the next episode told a grim story for The Situation, showing him being taken out of the house on a stretcher.)
