Back across the pond, Annabelle is bed-ridden for the next four months. It takes her quite some time to moves from the bed to a chair two feet away. She can’t put any weight on her rear when sitting. Caroline gossips with Annabelle about Caprice asking Marissa and Noelle to host a baby shower. Annabelle tells Caroline to suck it up and go. There seems to be some question about whether or not is even a baby shower, of if it is a “leaving party.” Annabelle’s body is so twisty and out of place it is hard to look at. Annabelle sense a power struggle between Caprice and Caroline.
Have we seen Caprice’s boyfriend before? I thought Caprice was married. Caprice and Ty’s surrogate is dilating. Ty doesn’t seem in any sort of rush to fly to the US yet. Caprice should probably be flying over herself right about now to have her baby there instead on mid flight over the Atlantic somewhere.
Caroline is having a dinner party with all the girls. It will be a catered event with waiters. Caroline is hiring an etiquette coach for Juliet, our National Treasure, in hopes that she might use proper decorum at the dinner table. Good luck with that. It’s a cheeky storyline. Caprice and Julie head off to visit with Annabelle. Caprice tells Annabelle that she is invited to Caroline’s dinner party and she does not want to go. Annabelle tells Caprice to go to dinner at Caroline’s and make up with her before the goes back to the states.
Oh the etiquette class is for Juliet and Noelle. This should be interesting. Noelle is there first and she makes numerous mistakes before food is even mentions. Noelle is a reluctant student to say the least. Rosemary the militant manners instructor is everything. Juliet arrives late. So staged. They bring out a pasta dish so that Juliet can slurp the noodle into her mouth. These “British Rules” are not British at all. They are basic rules of common decency. Sure they probably follow them more strictly in England, but I like to believe that most people are raised to know the proper fork, how to eat soup and that you should not eat off each other’s plate at a formal dinner. I do admit I don’t see many American’s practicing this but I really want to believe they would know how to behave at dinner if Obama invited them over to the White House.
The four of the ladies, Caroline, Marrisa, Noelle and Juliet go out to the Wellington Club. They discuss the baby shower, that is now officially being packaged as a leaving party, in hopes that Caroline will come. Caroline is resistant but I think she will be there. There is tension between Marissa and Juliet. And Caroline is taking jabs at Noelle because there is some sort of struggle between Caprice and Caroline for who gets Noelle as their little sycophant.
Caprice has a photoshoot for her lingerie line. Her lingerie line is actually quite original and attractive. With lots of micromanaging by Caprice things went very well. Noelle drops by to suck up to Caprice. Noelle tells Caprice that Caroline and Noelle are being mean to her for throwing the shower. Caprice wants to go confront Caroline.
It’s time for Caroline’s fancy dinner. Noelle decides to open her hostess gift for Caroline and drink it in the car. Noelle tells Juliet and Marissa that she told Caprice that Caroline was displeased over #BabyShowerGate. This alerted them that a shit storm is looming. Caroline’s estate sits on 300 acres. Caroline has invited a neighbor and a real friend for back up. Noelle is drunk upon arrival. Caprice is late. Noelle tells Julie she feels like she should not have to choose between Caroline and Caprice. Dinner appears to be some sort of salmon. Juliet does know how to hold her fork.
Next week is the Season Finale! NO!!! I have only just figured out who is who! The dinner party concludes next week with Caroline asking Caprice to leave her house. It’s the British version of Heather tossing out Shannon! I really don’t want this season to end. This episode didn’t have nearly enough Marissa. Hope there is a second season and all the ladies return!
