Below Deck season 9’s reunion episode filmed on Sunday, January 16, according to cast member Rayna Lindsey.
Rayna let the news slip in an Instagram video she posted to her stories Sunday evening, discussing her two-month anniversary sober from alcohol.
“I didn’t document [the anniversary] because I had to do the reunion, for the show [Below Deck]. That went really well as well,” she told her fans.
“A very up and down day with my emotions,” Rayna added. However, she didn’t elaborate any further on what happened during filming of the reunion.
Rayna had previously threatened to expose her Below Deck boss Eddie Lucas for allegedly trying to “assassinate” her character and saying something disparaging about the LGBTQ community.
When Below Deck Season 9’s Reunion Episode Will Likely Air On Bravo
At the beginning of 2022, Rayna announced there would be a Below Deck season 9 reunion episode and that there were four more regular episodes in the season. That was back when episode 11 hadn’t aired, so there are 3 more unaired episodes remaining.
This includes Monday’s episode 12, “New Stew on The Block”. On this episode, Chief Stew Heather Chase’s good friend Kaylee Milligan makes her first appearance as the new stew. Fans will wonder if she joined the rest of the Below Deck season 9 cast members on the reunion episode. Also, did Captain Lee’s substitute Captain Sean Meagher get a cameo appearance on the reunion episode?
Undoubtedly, Andy Cohen must’ve grilled the crew about the controversy surrounding Heather using a racist slur.
It appears Rayna Lindsey filmed herself for her Instagram story at her own home. With this in mind, it’s highly probable season 9’s reunion episode was filmed outside the studio, virtually. Below Deck season 8’s reunion episode had to be filmed virtually due to the pandemic.
