Unfortunately, something comes up at Mynt and Romain has to leave abruptly. If Romain weren’t one of the most well-behaved cast members, I’d consider that rude, but he’s not a train wreck, he’s just engaged to one, so I believe that there was a legitimate emergency. Joanna affirms that Romain’s work is very difficult and Thomas cackles that he can’t think of anything easier than running a nightclub filled with gorgeous waitresses and friends that throw money at you. Joanna, because she’s not smart enough to take a joke graciously, and a little because Thomas made a cheating joke a second earlier, takes his comments to heart and begins a serious pout session.
Things between Lea and Marysol get at little heated when the two women begin discussing James. Lea flat-out accuses Marysol of trying to sabotage James’ career, Marysol denies everything and the two women hurl accusations of lying back and forth. Ana steps in to defend Marysol, but Karen’t notices that Thomas is getting aggravated at all the sniping back and forth. I’m of two minds about this – it’s his house, and it’s a party, and it’s not the time to be hashing out stuff like this. But, he’s pretty rude to Ana, ringing a bell in her face and telling her to stop talking. These two could not be from more different worlds, and Ana is not fucking having it. Ana claims, loudly, that she is dumber for having attended, and leaves. Joanna leaves with her, still reeling from the “insults” he hurled at Romain, but eventually decides to stay. Not that that makes much of a difference – when she returns to the table, she starts crying and Thomas calls her a whackjob.
THEN Lea stands up to tell everyone how to behave in Thomas’ house, and Elsa just tells her to sit the fuck down and shut up. Apparently that’s not okay with Thomas, so he starts literally screaming in Elsa’s face, so she leaves, totally over it, and muttering about how she doesn’t give a fuck about a table without a tablecloth, full of French fries she didn’t want. Ha! That’s how you leave a fucking party.
“I kill you with my eyes.”
Outside, Marysol comforts Ana, but Ana’s pissed that Marysol didn’t defend her considering all the defending Ana has done of Marysol. She resolves to stop fighting Marysol’s battles, and the episode ends with Lisa dancing on the dining room table to diffuse tension. I give her some credit – it works.
Next week is Parent’s Week, apparently, and it’s also time for Karen’t and Rodolpho to discuss children. He’s strapped down to a dentist’s chair as they talk – coincidence? See you next week!
