We start with Cameron’s usual narration, and she takes stabs at Kathryn’s parenting right off the bat. I used to love Cameran when she was playing the good girl role. We really didn’t need another bitch on this show.
We begin with drunken Thomas throwing his guests out of his dinner party before dinner was even served. I would totally have put that dinner in a plastic bag inside my person. Landon can’t maintain her lane even when driving a golf cart and nearly gets everyone killed.
Thomas says to the survivors, K. Cooper Ray, Danni, JD, Elizabeth that he was sick of those people talking crap about his family. So why is JD sitting there looking like Boss Hogg and smiling like an idiot while chatting to Kathryn? He is one of the worst offenders! K.Cooper Ray is trying to talk Thomas down but getting no where.
Landon, Craig, Shep and Cameran and some other chick hightailed it to someone’s house to trash talk Thomas and of course Kathryn. Shep tells Landon she needs to take the high road when it comes to Kathryn and stop making things worse. Shep really hasn’t cared for Landon all season.
Everyone leaves Thomas’ house as soon as good manners allow, leaving Thomas alone with Kathryn. He invites her to sleep over and she agrees. Oh, Thomas. Either settle down with this girl or let her go. Your push/pull behavior is cruel.
The next day, as happens every season, Craig has to separate from his job. Because they are never real jobs. Craig generally just goes back to his home up north after filming. It does seem that he stuck around this time and is still with Naomie. Or so social media tells us.
I could not care less about Cameran’s fake therapy session.
Shep is working on a second dive bar, The Commodore, for those of you who think he doesn’t “work.” Landon drops by so that Shep can tell her once again he’s not interested.
I don’t care what Whitney and JD want to tell Thomas.
We get a sweet scene with Kathryn and Thomas and both kids at his house with no nanny in sight. Thomas is taking Kathryn to the Founders Ball to show the crew that they are working on their relationship and they are together.
The guys all go out for a shave and a hair cut to get ready for the Founders Ball. Whitney stops by the crypt for some reason. I fast forwarded that short scene as well as Landon’s as I am behind a bit and I just want to get to the good stuff.
Before the Founders Ball Kathryn and Thomas chat at his house where it appears Kathryn and the kids have been staying since dinner. They discuss Landon and Thomas finally admits she has been a divisive force. Kathryn points out the guys she has asked to introduce her to their rich friends, including Thomas. Thomas agrees to cut off Landon, but in his talking heads he seems to not mean it.
Did I mention Patti was not invited to the Ball? Apparently, Thomas called Landon and apologized and basically said he understands her point of view because he has to deal with Kathryn all of the time. And he wants her to call him. Such a POS this one is.
Patti tries to give Landon a lesson in how to real in a rich old man to marry. So sad and pathetic to see this in 2016.
And we are off to the ball! Landon is Whitney’s beard for the evening. Landon fake cries in confessional over Shep taking one of her “friends” to the ball. She seriously thought he would come stag?
The best thing about this episode is K. Cooper Ray. I have such a crush on him. You know if I were a lot younger, and still cute and he was straight. Shut up. It can still be a thing in my head. No one has to know. Um, oops.
Kathryn plops herself down at the table with all the girls including Cameran and sets Thomas free to go mingle. So Landon heads straight for Thomas. Shep stops by to be polite to Kathryn and they exchange pleasantries. As they do, Kathryn sees Thomas hugging Landon with a pat or three on her ass. Kathryn is about to go Def Con One.
Craig overhears Landon thank Thomas for calling her with an apology. I’ll give it ten seconds before he relates this information to Kathryn.
I love what Kathryn is wearing but the weird hand adornments (gloves?) are a miss for me. But they probably will protect her hands if her fists start to fly. Kathryn hauls Landon out to the vestibule and they have a huge argument. Sort of. It was really a lot more build up than actual drama. Landon made lots of dolphin noises while Kathryn accused her of propositioning Thomas. Something that she denied. I totally believe Landon. I think the more likely even was that Thomas and Landon went at it like horny pack animals one night after too much to drink. At least Thomas gave her a positive rating to the pony tailed porno dude. So she has that going for her.
Landon runs to get ……THOMAS. So that the three of them can talk. Wow. That’s a bitch move right there. I have to give Landon points for that. I didn’t see that coming. Landon makes Thomas tell Kathryn infront of God and everyone that they never “dated or anything.” Kathryn finally stands up on that lie. Every guy that has been on WWHL has admitted that Landon and Thomas hooked up. In fact that is likely when Shep lost interest in Landon. He doesn’t want to be Thomas’ Eskimo brother. Thomas stands next to LANDON while half-heartedly calling Kathryn to come back.
Kathryn does not come back she stomps right out the door telling the whole world to go fuck themselves. Thomas just stands there like a jackass letting the dolphin sounds creep into his giant ear. It is Shep, the gentleman who goes to check on Kathryn. Then Craig brings Landon outside and there is another ridiculous argument. Essentially, Landon and Kathryn are fighting over Thomas because he set it up to be just that way.
Landon leaves, as her scene is done and Thomas and Kathryn have a fight where she tells him he needs to admit to sleeping with Landon. This his last chance! And the DVR cuts off because it has to tape RHOC and something else. Why not just keep on taping? Argh. So I dunno if Thomas answered Kathryn. But at the very beginning of RHOOC there is a snippet where Shep’s date, who is friends with Landon says, ” Do you think Landon is going to admit that she slept with Thomas?”
Shep says, “WHAT?!!!”
And scene. That’s a wrap.
