Summary

The girls take some time to come up with a plan in “Thinking With Your D**k”, while Romeo returns to his kingdom and wonders if he’s still fit to rule it.

This recap of Sky Rojo season 1, episode 7, “Thinking With Your D**k”, contains spoilers.


Sky Rojo episode 7, the penultimate episode, feels like the calm before the storm, even though there’s a fair amount of chaos in it. This has been a well-structured season thus far, and “Thinking With Your D**k” knows just when to pump the brakes and let the tension mount for the finale. Divided broadly into two plots, with the girls hatching a plan for revenge and ultimately freedom and Romeo returning to the club and trying to determine if he’s still in a fit state to rule over it, there’s just the right balance of setup and forward momentum.

It begins rather frantic, admittedly, with the girls taking Arcadio (the guy Christian shot in the head) to Alfredo for life-saving surgery that… doesn’t save his life, in the end. But it’s the thought that counts. At the same time, Romeo returns to the club, and Christian and Moises help Beefcake dispose of the ambulance and its driver. Romeo is even more determined to get revenge, in part because he’s worried about his d*ck. Everything he has earned he thinks is because of it, and now it no longer works. That’s got to sting.

We also get a bit more of a sense of Coral’s past. The last episode suggested that she had been tracked before, but it’s the question of who she killed that we get an answer to. Turns out it was her mother-in-law, but only by accident. She was trying to gradually poison her husband, and the old dear came around and ate two bowls of soup. So, who was tracking her? Is that a question that’ll be answered by the finale?

Sky Rojo season 1, episode 7 also includes an interesting conversation between Alfredo and the girls. When he tries to swerve responsibility for what has happened to them, Wendy reminds him that he very much contributed to their predicament by paying for sex. On some level, those who do so realize that the girls don’t enjoy it. They’re being forced into that position, and the clients are exploiting them. You don’t suddenly get to absolve yourself of responsibility when the problem arrives on your doorstep.

Anyway, the girls decide they need to do something unexpected — return to the club and set a trap so that they can make off with all the money. But a sting like that requires some preparation and planning, so they stop in at a bar to hash things out. While there, they also get drunk and party with some local hot dudes, since why not, at this point? At the same time, Romeo, Moises, and Christian bond in the hot tub, though Romeo looks visibly concerned about how high Christian is. There’s a funny scene in “Thinking With Your D**k” when they make Beefcake strip off and join them for a laugh, but what matters more is that Fernando arrives trying to buy Gina’s freedom. He came through for her! Unfortunately, though, it probably won’t end well for him, since Romeo orders Christian and Moises to torture him for the location of the girls, which they assume he knows but that we know he doesn’t. Christian also lets slip to Romeo that he and Moises found the girls twice earlier, which immediately causes Romeo to become suspicious of Moi’s intentions. There’s trouble in paradise in Sky Rojo season 1, episode 7.

But there’s also hope. The girls decide to make a bear trap for Christian and Moises, and they steal a digger in order to do it. What exactly they’ve got planned is anyone’s guess, but is this going to be their last night, well… they’re going to go down fighting.
