I reversed my watching order this week as The Bachelorette came on first instead of Southern Charm. It would really help me out if Bravo could move Southern Charm to Tuesday, or maybe Sunday. Although the ratings hold their own, #SouthernCharm is always trending on Twitter along with #TheBachelorette, which really messes with me pulling my favorite tweets.
The show opens on the Charmers doing their thing. Kathryn is getting her namaste on. Landon asked Thomas out – he thinks its a date, she thinks they’re just two friends having dinner. She totally led him on. Cam calls “her angel” to talk about baby making & redecorating her lady cave, since Jason has his man cave. Jason wants it to be a nursery. I actually think this was just an #ad for Home Goods.
We focus on Craig as he receives an email from his law school notifying him that he has finally passed, is now a graduate, & can finally take The Bar. His parents were properly enthused; however, Naomie took all wind out of his sail. Normally, I’m #TeamNaomie, but she really was rude to Craig. Maybe it’s payback for him constantly referring to her as a child? There is a time to support Craig, & a time to say “I told you so,” learn the difference Naomie.
Landon & Thomas go on their date full of mixed signals. Thomas kept winking at her, which was so creepy. Landon giggled incessantly. Landon confessed that Thomas would be ideal for her, but she can’t move past the gossip & Kathryn situation. Thomas uttered, quite possibly the best line in SC history, “Go f@#$ thyself,” as his attitude towards gossip. I guess this was the code words for the drunk lady at the next table to lean over & rattle on & on about Thomas being Landon’s soulmate. Landon seemed a bit uncomfortable, but I’m sure that’s because she wasn’t buzzed enough yet.
Sheppy organized a lunch for himself, Craig, Kathryn, & Cameran so they can all re-connect & make any amends necessary. Shep perfectly pointed out to Cam that if she held Kathryn accountable, then Thomas needs to be held to the same standard. He is absolutely correct in that. In a round-about way, Cameran finally agreed while shading Kathryn in the process. Progress is slow in the South, y’all. Cameran dragged Whitney along, which made things even more awkward. Honestly, Shep should have led the conversation to help ease the tension…it was his idea after all. Finally, Cam extended the olive branch to Kathryn. They basically all agree to move on & let bygones be bygones. You guys, I’m finding Whitney to be so charming this season.
Craig & Austen play a horrible round of golf (as in their skills), while bitching constantly about Shep. Craig basically doesn’t have a nice thing to say about anyone but Kathryn. Was Craig wearing a woman’s sweater? They both basically say that Shep doesn’t want a relationshep (get it?) with Chelsea, but that he wants to “conquer” Chelsea. Since Chelsea is the girl version of Shep, I don’t think she’d mind.
Over at the Ravenel guest house, Thomas is planning Saint Julian’s first birthday with the nanny. Kensie, who is potty training, chose the perfect moment of Whitney’s arrival to drop trow. Hilarious! Whitney is so uncomfortable around children. He told Thomas that they all had lunch with Kathryn, & he thinks Thomas should give her a second chance.
Landon met up with her boy toy to confirm that she is indeed an old hen, & a stupid one to boot. She had a bad day at the “office” & learned that Roam is already taken…duh! That could be determined by a simple Google search. I’ve never incorporated a name, but guess what? I Googled the name of my blog & then purchased the domain. Business 101. Landon, stick to what you know – gold digging.
Liz & Kathryn met for coffee; I found this scene sadly sweet. The women end up sharing a small cake to celebrate Saint’s first birthday. Liz delivered Thomas’ written response to Kathryn’s letter. We end the episode with Thomas inviting Kathryn to Julian’s birthday party in the park. Olive branches, y’all!
Favorite Tweets from the night:
What did y’all think of our Southern Charmers last night? I still find myself loving & hating Craig from one breath to the next. What do you all think of Chelsea? I like her, but something really bugs me about her…can’t put my finger on it.
I promise to actually post a RHONY recap this week.
