Be Good Johnny Weir Recap of Season Finale Episode 10: Love conquers all
Be Good Johnny Weir airs Mondays 10/9 central on Logo. The show follows two time Olympian and three time US national figure skating champion Johnny Weir as he tries to find a career outside of skating, while training for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
Episode 10 was the finale of Be Good Johnny Weir Season 2 and ended on a beautiful note. Johnny found his true love, Vitya (aka Viktor Voronov) and the two embarked on a life together as a reality couple. If you may not know by now, in December 2011, Johnny and Viktor got married and have been inseparable, with Viktor accompanying him to Finlandia Trophy and everywhere else. Does Viktor have a job I wonder? Viktor also was in the closet for six years while seriously dating a woman. Johnny is okay with that because it at least shows that Viktor is capable of a long term relationship.
Also in this episode, Johnny tries his hand at singing (again) and this time records a rap song with Caswell called Kiss Me in Public. At the release party at a gay club, Johnny performs it live, rips his pants and still manages to pull off a decent performance.
Now the scene shifts to October 2011 at the Ice Theatre of New York gala at Chelsea Piers complex in NYC where Johnny is honored with a lifetime achievement award. All his family and friends are there and Johnny gives a lovely speech about acceptance and being true to oneself. Mother Patti, Father, agent Tara Modlin and fiance Josh King, Viktor and others beam with pride. The gala also featured several skating numbers with Johnny performing two pieces -- Meditation and Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. While skating, he realizes how much he misses skating to the crowd, the roar of the crowd and the adoration of the crowd. He can't get that feeling anywhere else but on the ice.
In the final scene of Episode 10, it's the day after the gala and Johnny calls Tara at 7 am to tell her the good news -- he wants to come back to competition and she needs to alert the media!
