‘Below Deck’ Episode Guide (Sept. 12): The Crew’s True Colors Come Out

“It Ain’t Easy Being Green” (09/12/17) – Tension is high as Kate and Nico continue to struggle operating with a crew of newbies. The crew welcomes their first charter guests. Mistakes continue to follow the crew and Captain Lee finds himself having to get more involved in troubleshooting the problems.

Brianna becomes the object of everyone’s affection and later during their first night out, the alcohol flow reveals some of the crew’s true colors and romantic intentions.

This season on “Below Deck,” Captain Lee has his hands full with a greener-than-usual crew, but fortunately he can rely on trusted veterans Kate and Nico to help him manage the rough seas ahead. For Kate, the frustrating task of getting two new stews quickly up to speed forces her to deal with her stress in interesting ways, including engaging in some off-boat escapades with a handsome sailor down the dock.

Nico’s first challenge of being senior deckhand is balancing his new leadership role onboard with the painful and difficult circumstances his family is facing back home. When he realizes he has a history with new stew Brianna, things get even more complicated. Also vying for Brianna’s affection are Chef Matt and deckhand Chris, who has bigger things to worry about than pursuing an onboard romance.

First-time deckhand Bruno and single mom-turned-stew Jen are living their dreams by working on a yacht, but the heavy workload and the scrutiny from their bosses may turn it into a nightmare. After a scary mishap, Captain Lee is forced to “reconfigure” the deck crew.

Nobody is happy with decision, except Baker, who may have ulterior motives for welcoming the sudden change. It’s all hands on deck this charter season as the crew struggles to work as a team, while meeting the needs of the always demanding, frequently eccentric charter guests.

Season four of “Below Deck” was the highest rated season ever among all key demos, delivering 1.4M P18-49, 1.6M P25-54, and 2.5M total viewers. “Below Deck” season four grew +27% from the prior season among P18-49, +27% among P25-54, and +28% among total viewers.

The series is produced by 51 Minds with Mark Cronin, Courtland Cox and Lauren Simms serving as executive producers alongside Dan Volpe and Sun de Graaf serving as co-executive producers.
