Season 7 of Below Deck Mediterranean aired a brand new episode on Monday, October 3, on Bravo. It featured Storm Smith lashing out at his love interest, Natalya Scudder.

While the two hit it off instantly in the beginning, they did not move forward at the same pace in the relationship. Storm wanted to go all in, while Natalya was not entirely ready to commit. As a result, the couple got into a fight in the previous episode and decided to take things slow.

However, the latest episode saw Natalya interfering in Storm’s deckhand business. Fans found her “exhausting” as they felt that she was deliberately trying to create drama.

Natalya is exhausting. Storm is just chilling and she’s trying to pick a fight. #BelowDeckMed

Towards the end of Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 episode 13, Storm was seen walking away from the restaurant, blaming Natalya for ruining his evening.

Fans slam Natalya for her behavior towards Storm

While viewers appreciated Natalya for telling Storm not to bring up work when everyone was out relaxing and having fun, they could not get behind her rude attitude.

One fan felt that she was sabotaging her relationship, while another wrote that she was behaving like a long-term girlfriend despite deciding to take things slow.

Take a look at some of the reactions from Below Deck Mediterranean fans on social media.

Natalya is sabotaging her 💗 life #belowdeckmed #belowdeck
I feel like Natalya is constantly nit picking Storm & any time something goes beyond surface level, she freaks out. Girl needs to get it together.Also Tash and Kyle are just getting worse episode by episode, didn't think that was possible but here we are. 🤷‍♀️#belowdeckmed
Omggggg Natalya, chill out!! She’s right but her delivery is trash. #BelowDeckMed
Natalya is so annoying #belowdeckmed
That was a terrible time for Storm to tell Courtney & Mzi. Natalya was right. But Natalya was wrong for saying it. If she wants to take it slow, then take it slow and stop acting like you’re his longtime girlfriend who has a right to say that to him. #belowdeckmed
Natalya needs to take a break from herself . It’s too much complaining and constant and also when she is alone she doesn’t stop #belowdeckmed
#BelowDeckMed Natalya handing Storm a list of topics he’s not allowed to bring up during a fun night out like
Natalya needs to back off from telling Storm how to run his crew #Belowdeckmed #belowdeckmeditteranean
why does Natalya treat Storm like crap? I'll date him if u don't want him! #BelowDeckMediterranean & Natasha playing games with Dave the chef - I'll take him too! Come to NY @Andy Lord knows we need more humble men here
Natalya is just playing with you Storm. You’re not that guy. #belowdeckmed

Natalya and Storm got into a romantic relationship within a few days after the latter arrived on board. He came as a deckhand but was later promoted to Bosun. Since his promotion, he began focusing on his duties, which annoyed Natalya as he would only talk about his work even when they were on a date or out with friends.

In Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 episode 13, the crew members went out for dinner after their sixth charter. While the cast was relaxing, Storm decided to have a short meeting with his two deckhands, Courtney Veale and Mzi “Zee” Dempers, about promoting one of them to be the lead deckhand. After Storm announced Courtney as the lead deckhand, the three arrived at the dinner table.

Mzi looked upset as he had assumed Storm would make him the leader because of his hard work and on the virtue of being best friends. Seeing Mzi’s disappointed expression, Natalya nagged Storm about bringing work to a night out. She pointed out Storm’s mistakes and why he should not have announced the lead deck knowing that it would ruin Mzi’s night.

This made Storm angry, so he got up and marched away while mumbling that he was done dealing with Natalya.

Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 episode 13 recap

Episode 13 of Below Deck Mediterranean season 7 welcomed a short charter, where guests arrived during lunch and left the next day after breakfast.

The charter guests were a group of seven women, in which the primary guest was Myiesha “Mye” Griffin, an IT Project Manager from Nashville, TN. She came with her friends — Deidra, Whitney, Elizabeth, Stacie, Roniesha, and Eboni. They had requested for performances by local entertainers in Malta.

Since the owner of the yacht had connections in the entertainment world, he was able to organize a surprise performance by Maltese pop star Destiny Chukunyere. She was a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent season 11 and a participant in the Maltese version of The X Factor season 2.

The guests enjoyed the performance while indulging in Chef Dave White’s food. They gave a $12,000 tip to Captain Sandy Yawn while leaving the yacht the next day.

Apart from the fun segment, the latest episode also featured drama between deckhand Jason Gaskell and Bosun Storm Smith. Jason said that he wanted to quit after Storm tried to point out the issues he was having with the deckhand. Storm then informed the captain about Jason’s decision. The latter might leave in the upcoming episode.

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 airs a new episode every Monday on Bravo at 8.00 PM ET.
