Lea interviews that Leroy is like a child to her and it’s heartbreaking to think that anything could happen to the little guy. Poor, Lea. I’ve been there. That blows. Even Marysol interviews that she’s never seen Lea break down like that. All the ladies arrive, and it’s time for Norman to do his thing. For once, Elsa Patton is not the craziest person in the room. She is still, however, the awesomest by far.
Ana interviews that Norman reminds her of Rumplestiltskin, and it’s clear she doesn’t quite know what to make of him. Lisa notices that Lea is stressed, and since they’re BFFs now, Lisa interviews that she really hopes nothing bad happens at the gala. Lisa, why do you want to make my job more difficult?
Everyone sits down and Norman begins to explain what he does. Bravo doesn’t think that’s very interesting, though, so we immediately cut to Norman explaining that when he rubs his bowls, it’s the same thing as when he eeeaaaaiioouus. Man, there may not be drama at the gala tonight, but when Bravo closes a door, it sure knows how to open a window.
Elaine arrives, along with Joanna, and Jo interviews that being there is the last thing she wants to be at the moment. She’s glad that Adriana didn’t show up, though, and assumes that the other woman must be embarrassed. Eh, probably not. When Elaine sits down, Marysol jokes that Elsa left her cane in the car, and Elsa rolls her eyes at Elaine’s presence. Now THAT’S a catfight I want to see before the end of the season.
Each woman gets to go up and get their aura read or some shit by Norman, and apparently he will solve whatever problem or answer any question they have at that time. Lisa’s up first, and she asks if there are children in her and Lenny’s future. Norman gets what Lisa wants to hear, but not totally. He says he sees one boy, and probably expects her to start crying from joy, but she’s all, “One? One motherfucker?” and sits down and interviews that he’s incorrect. Ha!
Joanna’s next and because they’re fatally co-dependent, she brings her sister with her. She rolls her eyes as she explains that she and her fiancé are going through a rough patch because even she’s tired of hearing that. Norman explains that she and Romain are too alike in too many ways for them to be on top of each other all the time (don’t worry, they’re not). He advises her not to get married if she and Romain keep butting heads. When it comes time to read Marta, Marta sits down as quickly as she can because she’s done sharing for awhile, I think.
I would be, too.
Then it’s Elsa’s turn! And she’s fantastic. She’s already whispered to Lisa that Norman doesn’t know what he’s doing, so this oughta be good. And it is. She gets up there, takes over completely and gives Norman a reading instead of receiving one. He totally plays along, but it’s clear he has no idea what’s going on. I really want Elsa to blog that she was just messing with his head and raising their arms up and down together, pronouncing that he has two souls was total bullhonky. The fact that he went along with it made him look even more ridiculous. She’s that kind of evil – the good kind. Hilarious? The fact that Elsa’s reading looks way more legit than anything I’ve seen Norman do during his considerable airtime this episode is. More hilarious? The fact that Norman just started eeeaaaaiioouu-ing at some point because that’s like, his version of purring. The whole thing is fantastic.
