The Spectacular Now Chapter 8 Summary

  • Ricky and Bethany apparently had the time of their lives on the boat.
  • Bethany thinks he's hilarious, but Ricky's still a little too shy to ask her for a date. Wingman Sutter helps him set it all up.
  • As they say goodbye, another car pulls up. Uh-oh. It's Cassidy and a friend.
  • She sees Tara hug Sutter goodbye. Not Good.
  • He finally finds out what that ultimatum was: she wanted him to consider her feelings whenever he did something.
  • Since he obviously wasn't doing that (hanging out with another girl all night and all), she breaks up with him.
