In addition to production being cut short thanks to Covid-19 (coronavirus), some fans expressed disappointment with the hour-long virtual reunion that didn’t seem to do a complete deep dive into the season. Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment, feeling let down by the lackluster reunion.
‘Rushed’ and ‘boring’ seemed to be the consensus
The overall feeling was that the reunion felt rushed and even a little boring. “That #BelowDeck #reunion was the worst EVER…and it had nothing to do with being virtual (as many waaaaay better reunions have also been virtual). Far too rushed, rehashed all the same points, boringgggg,” one person tweeted the following day.
Reunions are usually grounds for some wild fights. But fans noticed that everyone seemed to gloss over topics and even quickly apologize. Chef Rachel Hargrove and bosun Eddie Lucas teased they had serious tension this season. While Lucas griped about Hargrove in confessionals, they never came to verbal blows. While they addressed his remarks about her, they both agreed to come together. Lucas told Hargrove she’s the best chef he’s ever worked with and she returned the compliment.

Elizabeth Frankini seemed to be frustrated that she couldn’t really convey how bullied she felt by Francesca Rubi and Ashling Lorger.
“#Francesca made up her mind about #Liz once she heard her talking about her and did everything she could to target her and ice her out. That said, I’m not sad #Liz got fired and would not like either of them to get a 2nd season. Chess looks great #reunion though,” a fan tweeted.
