What I Watched Today
(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)
Lulu brings Dante some food at the station, and asks how Mike is doing. He says Mike is sleeping now. Looking at him, you’d never know there was a problem. Lulu doesn’t know who she feels worse for, him or Sonny. She says the worst thing is the powerlessness; there’s nothing you can do to help. Dante asks if she’s talking about his father or Maxie. She’s already given up her career, and can start mending fences.
Peter finds Maxie asleep at her desk. He asks why she’s back at work already. She says Nina already lectured her about it, and he says she’s another one who shouldn’t be there. It’s too soon for both of them. Maxie tells him that Nathan would want them to go on with their lives. Peter says he’d also want them to take care of themselves. He orders dinner for two from the MetroCourt.
Anna finds Felicia working at the bar. She has something to tell Maxie, but wants to tell her first. Felicia asks what Maxie needs to know.
Elizabeth tells Franco that the bridegroom isn’t supposed to see the bride the night before the wedding for practical reasons. He thinks it’s to give the bride time to run. She says after tomorrow, nothing and no one can keep them apart. He says till death do they part.
Drew, sporting a bandaged hand, meets Curtis at Charlie’s. He tells Curtis that he got injured changing a tire. Since this has nothing to do with the plot, I’m guessing it’s an on screen explanation for a real life injury. Curtis tells Drew he combed Jim’s hotel room, but found nothing. Drew says just because he found nothing to link Jim to Betsy in his room, doesn’t mean he’s not involved. Jim walks in, saying he has a bunch of hungry construction workers, and places an order. Drew says he’s glad to run into him, and asks if he has a minute.
Dante looks at the food, and says Lulu went all out. She tells him that she’s lucky. He knows she’s upset abut Maxie losing Nathan. He tells her that he’s not going anywhere, and she’s glad for that. She says that when she starts something, she always finishes it, but she can’t give up a career that means so much to her. He asks what made her change her mind? Peter?
The food comes, and Maxie tells Peter that she’ll eat for the baby. He tells her go home afterwards, sleep, and come back tomorrow. She says she’s thinking of having the hotel send a cot to the office. He saw how miserable she was at the apartment. She even got rid of every reminder. It sounds cold, but she didn’t think she could survive being surrounded by objects that reminded her of Nathan. He’s everywhere, except there. It’s strange, since that’s where Faison shot him. Peter gets it. All her best memories are at home, but her worst memories are there. If she can overcome that, she can overcome anything. She says it sounds like he’s speaking from experience. She tells him don’t think of holding out on her. What kind of horribleness did he have to face?
Felicia asks Anna if she thinks Huntington’s disease was passed to Nathan, and Anna says it shouldn’t be ignored. The possibility is fifty percent. If Nathan was still with them, he would have to be told, so they have to do what he’d probably want; have the baby tested. Felicia says she’ll tell Maxie. She’s her mother.
Elizabeth asks Franco if he’s making progress in his sessions with Doc. He says it’s hard to gauge with a complex history like his. She wonders what he’s not telling her, and says he can tell her anything, but he doesn’t have to. Keeping things to yourself and keeping secrets are two different things. He asks which is which, and she says it’s a secret if it’s something she needs to know and he’s hiding it. Is there anything he wants to tell her? Scotty interrupts, asking if there’s a bachelor party planned. Franco says that should be his department, and Scotty says he’ll check his little black book for strippers. Elizabeth says that’s a no, and Franco agrees. Scotty gives Franco a letter that came for him. Inside is a card congratulating him on the upcoming wedding from Betsy. No check though. Geez. Is Betsy my maternal grandmother?
Drew thinks he and Jim got off on the wrong foot. Jim says think nothing of it. Drew says the Charles Street redevelopment is really happening; good for him. Jim says he broke ground right after the election. Drew didn’t realize he was so hands-on, and says he can relate, since he’s the same way at Aurora. He and Sam thought they could set up a meeting. They could do business together for the betterment of Port Charles. Jim Drew his him card, and says they’ll set something up. Drew says one day they might be friends again. Jim says he makes it sound like they were friendly in the past. Drew admits he has a blank space where his memory is; maybe Jim has answers. What he can’t figure out is why would a woman who loved him send him to an orphanage. Does Jim have the answer to that?
At the construction site, Curtis goes into Jim’s office. A worker asks what the hell he thinks he’s doing.
Lulu tells Dante that she was all set to quit, and Peter pointed out that if she hadn’t written the article, Faison might still be out there. Nathan was on board with it, and wanted to draw him out. He knew the risks, and in the end, did what he had to in order to protect his wife and baby. Dante says it’s true; Nathan didn’t do anything he didn’t want to. Lulu says Peter reminded her that she has a calling, and if she gives that up, she gives up on herself, and Faison wins. Dante asks if she ever thought about the possibility that Peter is using her.
Peter says after everything went down, and Nathan passed – Maxie interrupts him, saying Nathan died. He didn’t pass, he didn’t leave them, he didn’t go anywhere; he died. Peter continues, saying he reassessed his priorities; everything in his life, what mattered and what didn’t. Maxie asks what the verdict was. He says he thought he’d be happier elsewhere, and tendered his resignation. Maxie says, but he’s still here. He says Drew and Sam gave him time to think, and he reconsidered. Maxie thanks him, saying who knew he had insecurities like the rest of them? He’s too slick, and guys like him are either overcompensating for their inadequacies or delusional. He says he’s in category A, and she asks what made him stay. Felicia appears, saying sorry to interrupt. Maxie asks what it is.
Curtis tells the worker that he’s a new hire. He’s asked for his ID. As Curtis is looking for it, he says he wanted to check some stats, unless the guy wants to discuss it with the boss. The worker says no need to bother, and tells him to get busy. When he leaves, Curtis looks in the file cabinet and cupboard, but there’s nothing. He looks through some maps, and notices a few that are inside tubes, leaning against the wall. He takes them out and takes pictures.
Jim tells Drew that he and Betsy parted before she gave him up. He’s sorry, and wishes he could be of help. The waitress brings Jim’s order. He asks if he can call Drew “Andy,” but that’s a no. He says he’ll get used to calling him Drew easier than calling Bobby “Franco,” Drew says speaking of Franco, does he remember why Drew was expendable. Why would Betsy give him up? Jim doesn’t know. The only reason he can think of is that they banged heads all the time. It was kid stuff, but Drew would really go at it.
Franco wonders if Betsy is off the grid, why would she know about the wedding? Elizabeth excuses herself, saying Franco will only need five minutes to put on a suit, while she’ll spend five hours to look amazing. He tells her that she always looks amazing. They kiss, and exchange I love yous. After she leaves, Scotty says he hasn’t told her, has he?
Andre tells Anna that they’ve got to stop meeting like this. She tells him it’s about the baby. She has to find her. It’s a matter of life or death.
Peter gives Felicia and Maxie privacy. Felicia tells her it’s about the baby. Maxie says the baby is fine. Felicia says she hopes that never changes. She talked to Anna, and Maxie says she doesn’t want to hear anything about Faison; she doesn’t care. Felicia says something was found in his DNA. Maxie asks if it was a genetic mutation of evil, but Felicia says it’s Huntington’s disease. It affects cognitive functions and the brain. Faison had a number of symptoms. It’s genetic, and there’s a chance it was passed to Nathan. Maxie says Nathan is gone, but Felicia says it could have been passed down to Faison’s grandchild.
Franco says pushing Drew down a flight of stairs didn’t come up. Scotty doesn’t think the guy who said honesty is the best policy was married, or never got past the honeymoon. Franco only has Betsy’s word that it happened. Franco says he’s starting to have other memories. Scotty is going back to his previous advice. What happened, happened. He’s not a kid anymore. He has a life and should live it. He hopes Franco took his other piece of advice, and didn’t allow Doc to use him as a guinea pig.
Drew leaves Curtis a message, saying he stalled as long as could. He texts Curtis to GET OUT NOW.
At his office, Jim asks if he can help someone. It’s Elizabeth.
Lulu tells Dante that she already made the decision. He supposes he doesn’t get an opinion. He says she’s a great reporter and brought change, but she doesn’t listen when she’s told to be careful. She says her editor wants her to focus on cat shows and puff pieces. Dante says Peter wants her to take risks while he gets the reward. She says it might come as a surprise, but she makes her own choices. He says Nathan is dead, her best friend won’t forgive her, and she almost left her kids without a mother. She says he puts himself in danger every day. He tells her that he does his job to serve and protect, but he lost Nathan and almost lost her. Peter might think her life is acceptable to risk so he can boost his business, but Dante doesn’t.
Maxie tells Felicia that Nathan had no symptoms, but she says they usually don’t show up until the person is between thirty and fifty; he might have carried the gene and not known it. Maxie says he died to save his child, and it could have been for nothing. Faison can still reach out from the grave to claim her baby, and there’s nothing she can do.
Curtis joins Drew, telling him by time he got the message, he was long gone. He says Drew seems extra edgy, and Drew says he is every time he’s around Jim. He asked Jim about his childhood, but he remembers pretty much noting, except him and Franco fighting when they were kids. Curtis says there’s been no luck with anything linking Jim to Betsy, but Drew says he might have another lead.
Elizabeth apologizes to Jim for her unannounced visit. She tells him congratulations, but he says he saw her rooting for the other side. She says he’s right, and he asks why she’s there. He doesn’t think it’s to rehash the election. She tells him that she’s getting married to Franco tomorrow. He says it’s his turn to say congratulations. He’d love to get them a wedding gift, and asks if there’s anything they need. She says Franco’s mother, Betsy.
Andre tells Anna the disease is like a ticking time bomb, and can be carried for decades. She says her daughter needs to know for herself or any children she might have. Andre asks how Anna plans to find her. She says when she gave the baby up, she didn’t even ask if it was a boy or girl. She was very clever, and made sure she went through no legal or traceable channels. She doesn’t know anything; they’re strangers. She’s made a mess of everything.
Maxie asks Felicia what she does now. Felicia says the first step is a test. Whatever the results are, she needs to know. If it’s negative, it’s one less thing to worry about. If it’s positive, the doctor will guide her through it. Maxie says she has to get back to work. Felicia says the issue can wait. She needs sleep for her and the baby. Maxie says they’re both fine; everything is fine. Felicia tells her to call; she doesn’t need a reason. Maxie sits staring into space. Peter puts a hand on her shoulder.
Elizabeth tells Jim it would mean so much have Franco’s mother at the wedding. They had an argument, and she took off. They haven’t been able to find her, but she thought maybe Jim spoke to her. Jim says they’ve been out of touch long time, and she says she knew it was a long shot. He wonders why Elizabeth thought he was in contact with Betsy. Elizabeth says it would explain how she knew where to send a card. Franco got one with no return address.
Curtis tells Drew that when a big mess is usually left after a fast getaway. Betsy couldn’t have been tidier; all her expenses were paid and everything organized. She had been deep in debt, and it was completely cleared. She didn’t have the money, but after the art show, guess who did? Drew says that doesn’t work for him; Franco’s not behind it. Normally, he wouldn’t give him the benefit of the doubt, but when he asked Franco about it, he believed him.
Scotty tells Franco that he’s lost his mind, and to stay away from Doc. If Doc starts rummaging around in Franco’s mind, he’ll find something. Franco says it’s not just therapy; he’s helping Doc with his research. Scotty says, is he? Is he stirring memories that are buried or helping? Franco says both. Scotty tells him that he’ about to marry beautiful girl tomorrow. Ask himself what would his father do, then have the sense God gave a goose and do the opposite.
Jim says it’s not every day a bride-to-be tracks down her future mother-in-law. Elizabeth thinks Franco is worth it. It blows Jim’s mind that he grew up to be a famous artist, and is now marrying the woman of his dreams. He’s truly blessed. He wishes them nothing but happiness. Elizabeth thanks him, and leaves.
Scotty tells Franco they’re taking an Uber. Franco says his car is there. Is Scotty afraid he’s going to run to Canada? Scotty says they don’t know what can happen, and he’s not taking any chances. Franco thanks Scotty for being his dad, and standing up for him, not just at the wedding. Scotty is kind of his favorite relative.
Curtis asks Drew if not Franco, than who? Drew says, Jim. The more they talk, the more he’s convinced Jim is hiding something. Now they have to prove it.
Jim calls someone, and tells them what they did was stupid.
Lulu tells Dante to Mike some food so it won’t go to waste. She starts to leave, and comes back to tell him that she loves him. He says he knows.
Anna tells Andre that she’ll treat it like any other missing person, and start at the beginning. She’s going to Brussels where her daughter was born. Andre says it sounds like plan. She asks if he’s going to wish her luck, and he says he’ll do better. He’s going with her. She asks how his Flemish is.
Peter asks what Faison did, and Maxie says nothing actually. He’s just as much of a victim as the baby and Nathan. Peter says Faison was never anybody’s victim. Maxie tells him it turns out Faison had Huntington’s disease, a genetic brain disorder. It’s fatal with a slew of horrible symptoms along the way, and there’s a fifty percent chance it’s passed to the children. Peter gives a look like, DUN-DUN-DUNN!
Tomorrow, Kim calls Julian a good guy, Scout celebrates a birthday, and Sonny asks Ava what it will cost to make it go away
The Haves and the Have Nots
David and Melissa find Veronica and Benny going at it. Melissa says uh-oh. Veronica tells David, see what he gets when he walks in without knocking, and asks if he wants to see more. Benny says, are you kidding? David leaves. Melissa calls Benny nasty, and Veronica throws a pillow at her. Benny says it ain’t right; it’s her husband, and she says soon to be ex. He’s leaving, and she calls him her hero, but if he wants to go, go. He says it’s a messed up situation. She says he wanted it, and so did she so. She doesn’t feel bad about it. He does, and tells her not to call him again. He gets dressed, and Veronica laughs, asking if he’d like to come back. He says it’s crazy, and she says he’s crazy about this. Why is he fighting it?
Melissa says Benny actually did that, and he tells her to leave him alone. David says Benny is still in it, but Benny says he should talk to his wife about that. David says he’s talking to him. Benny tells him to move from the front door, and David says, move him. Benny says he kicked David’s old ass before. Veronica comes down, and tells David not to mess up her good thing. Melissa says, this is good. I’m surprised she didn’t get popcorn. Veronica calls her a bitch, and tells her to go to her room, Veronica tells David to let Benny go, and Benny walks out. She asks what David wants. He asks Melissa to excuse them, but she says she doesn’t think so. Veronica slaps her, and asks if she didn’t hear. Melissa says touch her one more time and see what happens, but she goes upstairs.
Veronica tells David that Melissa is driving her crazy. Is he jealous? A fine, sexy, desirable man wants her. He hands her a folder, and tells her to read it. It’s all the things he’s had on her over the years. She says she has a file too, so he can’t scare her with this. She calls Jeffrey a girl, and David says he’s gay; get over it. She says, not in our family; she needs to stay in jail then. David tells her that she can’t make him straight. Veronica says she’s not trying to. She’s just trying to make him be who he is. David asks if she wants him to take the file to the FBI, and she tells him to do what he has to. She’ll sing like a bird. One of them tried to have her killed, but she’s going to live to be the fire that burns him. She threatens to take care of the beige girl he’s seeing, and he tells her to move out of his way. She tells him to move her. She has a restraining order, and she’ll tell the police that he beat her. She tells him the beige girl with the pretty face is going to get messed up, and he pushes her aside. She yells that David Harrington is a wife beater. Melissa is hanging around on the stairs, and Veronica says she’s going to the doctor tomorrow to find out why she’s not showing. Melissa says she’s not going anywhere. Veronica tells her that if she’s not pregnant, she won’t have to worry about anything anymore. Melissa asks if Veronica is threatening her. Veronica says she is, and Melissa tells her that she’d better lock her door tonight. Veronica says she’ll leave it open; come in and see what happens. Veronica goes upstairs, and Melissa says she’ll show her how crazy she is.
DA George tells Sarah that they have the Cryers. It’s a match. He’s going to talk to the judge, but this is clearly enough. He tells her they’re paying Wyatt a visit. It’s solid, way solid. She wants to know what it is, but he tells her to just come.
Hanna helps new housekeeper Joanne, who calls Kathryn particular and a bit of a bitch. Kathryn snapped at her, and if she didn’t need the job, she’d have been gone. She asks if Hanna doesn’t think Kathryn is kind of stuck up. She was going to ask for tomorrow off, but she would probably hit the roof. Hanna asks how long she’s been working there, and Joanne says a week, but it’s better than the last family. Those damn white folks got on her last nerve. Their daughter got pregnant by a Black man, and they hit roof. She tells Hanna it’s an ugly little brown baby. Hanna is like, really? Joanne thought there was drama in the hood, but these people are even worse. She looks at Kathryn’s jewelry, and says one necklace cost more than she makes in a year; she could sell it and be happy. Hanna says she’d better not, and Joanne says she’s just playing. Hanna says she’ll be right back, and takes her purse with her. Joanne tries on earrings.
Hanna goes downstairs and finds Kathryn. Kathryn kids her about her upcoming date with Derek. Hanna needs to talk about Joanne. She says sorry to do this, but Kathryn has to fire her. She’s up in everyone’s business, and it’s not good for her with all the drama she has. Kathryn admits not doing her due diligence, but she thought Joanne was cool. Hanna says she’s a hot mess and will steal everything. Joanne storms in, says she knew Hanna was going to tell on her, and asks Hanna what kind of a sister she is. Hanna says first of all, she’s not her sister; she’s an honest woman, and what Joanne is doing is terrible. Joanne says Hanna’s ignorant ass gives Black people a bad name. How is she going to feed her kids. Kathryn says she’s not feeding them on her dime, and to get out. Joanne says she doesn’t know who she’s talking to; who does she think she is? She’d better have her money ready in two weeks or she’ll burn the house down. She leaves, and Hanna tells Kathryn, you see? Crazy.
Veronica calls Candace, who asks what the hell Jeffrey is doing in jail? Veronica says he’s there for her crime, and Candace says she didn’t do anything. Veronica says the phone isn’t bugged; she can say what she wants. Veronica tells her that Jeffrey wouldn’t do as he was told, and had to go. Candace says he won’t make it, and Veronica says that’s not her problem. He likes the boys; maybe he should be around them. Candace asks if Veronica is punishing him for being gay, and Veronica says it’s worthy of punishment. Candace tells her, people are gay; get over it. Veronica says not to educate her on the LGBTQ and however many letters they’ve added. Candace says people have died for being gay, and she should show respect. Veronica says give her the old days, when the closet was king for queens. Candace thinks her level of ignorance is too much. Veronica says they need to talk about David; she wants to take him for everything. Candace says her girl hasn’t found any account numbers or passwords, and Veronica tells her that David won’t leave those around the house. He might be screwing her, but he’s also watching her. He’ll know if anything is out of place, and will even use a black light. Candace asks if he’s that paranoid, and Veronica says she taught him. She says make sure nothing is disturbed. Keep an eye out, and she’ll inform Candace of the next move. She tells Candace she’s impressed so far, and Candace is like, bitch, please.
Candace calls Erica, who tells her there’s nothing there. Candace says she’s holding off on the $100K, and not to snoop; he’ll know. Erica says she thought he would, and Candace tells her not to think. Don’t touch anything; don’t do anything. He’ll black light things looking for evidence. She asks what name Erica has her under on the phone, and Erica tells her CY. Candace calls her stupid, and tells her to put her number under Cynthia. Put everything in an app, and leave everything else exposed. If David checks, he’ll never find it.

After Oscar is gone, a girl comes in. Jim asks if she’s new at this, and she feigns ignorance, saying that she met an amazing guy in the bar, and he invited her to his room. If he happens to leave $5K on the dresser, that’s just fine. Jim says $1K only, and she says he’ll only get $1K worth of service. He says it better be damn good, and she says he’ll be paying her $5K before he knows it. She kisses him, and they move to the bed.
George goes to Wyatt’s place with Sarah. Wyatt asks what’s up. George says they have a bit of an issue. They have strong evidence tying his family to Jennifer’s shooting. Wyatt asks what they have, and George asks if his family owns a gun. Wyatt says not that he knows of, and George asks where his sister got one. He doesn’t know. George asks if he’s ever seen his parents with one; it’s important that he has, and he needs him to think about it. The light bulb comes on, and Wyatt says actually, he has. George asks which, and Wyatt says both. George says that’s all he needs, and Wyatt asks if George is picking them up. George says he’s working on it. Wyatt says them coming by has to stop. His dad is telling him not to testify. George offers to get a restraining order.
While they’re waiting for the elevator, George tells Sarah that they got them. She doesn’t like the coercion. It’s obvious Wyatt didn’t see them with a gun. He asks whose side she’s on. They killed one of them, and they’re going down for it. She says the case isn’t tight, and George asks if she’s going to rat on him. She says no, and he tells her that she just got this job. She’s with him for a reason; to learn the ropes. He tells her to watch, learn, and keep her mouth shut. They’re going to visit Kathryn and see if she’ll break.
Justin brings another officer some coffee, and says he hears the officer has the Harrington case. The officer says she was in a car wreck. She’s okay, but they have no clue who hit her. Justin tells him good luck.
Justin calls for Jeffrey at his cell, which is getting super old. Jeffery says he’s not going anywhere with Justin. Justin asks if he wants to make it difficult, and Jeffrey says he does. Justin tells him to get on his feet. Jeffrey says, no, and Justin keeps repeating it. Jeffrey just looks at him. The other officer comes out, and asks if Justin is having trouble. Justin says no, and the officer says he has the authority to make him come, but Justin says it’s okay. He looks at his phone and says he just got a text that they’re going to be late, so he doesn’t need Jeffrey. The officer says today is Jeffrey’s lucky day.
Justin’s wife, Kendra, comes to the station. She asks to talk in private. They go to an interrogation room. She asks him why. Why didn’t he tell her? She found out in open court he was with that man. He says he wasn’t, and she says she saw it. He apologizes. She says he should have just told her he’s gay, and he says he’s not. She wonders what the calls it, and he says he doesn’t know. He doesn’t know what to say; it isn’t the place. She says, no, it isn’t, but he hasn’t returned her calls. She’s not leaving until he talks to her. He owes her that. He says it’s been forever since they’ve been intimate. She says he hasn’t touched her. In the last year, she came onto him. He says she’s always busy, and she tells him not to turn it around. It’s him; just be honest. Why can’t he just tell her? He says he’s sorry. She asks if he loves Jeffrey, but he can’t talk to her about that. She says she’s his wife, and he repeats he can’t talk about it. She says it’s more like he won’t, and he tells her that he has to get back to work.
Hanna tells Kathryn that’s it, and Kathryn says it looks good. Hanna was the best housekeeper she ever had. She asks if Hanna will work for her again at double the salary, and have two people report to her. Hanna shakes her head. Kathryn asks if it’s the money, and Hanna says she knows what they’ve been through. It hurts Kathryn that she can’t fix it, but Hanna could use the money. Hanna says she could go to school and get s nursing degree. She doesn’t want to do this anymore; she wants a change. Kathryn suggests going to school while she’s working for her, but Hanna says she’d be dog tired. Kathryn says she can do it, and Hanna says she’ll think about it. Kathryn says think is better than won’t.
They go outside, and see George and Sarah pull up. Hanna asks if Kathryn wants her to stay, but Kathryn says Hanna needs to get ready for her date. Hanna says it’s not until tomorrow, but Kathryn tells her to go. George tells Kathryn they’d like to talk to her, and she invites them in. She should just pin everything on Veronica. George introduces Sarah, and Kathryn asks if he has more bad news for Jim. He says it’s actually bad news for her. Her son is planning to testify against her. She thought Jennifer dropped it, but George says what she did was die; she was murdered actually. She had a gunshot wound, point blank to the chest. Kathryn acts like she doesn’t know anything, and George says it was a 45 caliber handgun; one registered to the Cryer address. She tells him he needs to talk to Jim; she wouldn’t know about it. George says they will. He’s sorry about her daughter, and says, it was a suicide, right? Jennifer was looking into it because the blood spatter didn’t match a suicide. Kathryn asks how that can be, and George tells her that Jennifer thought her daughter was murdered. He asks whose gun it was, and she says it was Jim’s. He asks how Amanda got it, and she says she doesn’t know. She wonders if she should call her attorney, and George says if she’d like. She asks if he’s saying she’s a suspect, but he says he’s just asking questions. She tells him that they need to leave, and he tells her that the same gun used to kill Jennifer was the one Amanda used. The bullets match. She asks how that’s possible, and he asks her to tell him. She tells him that she thinks she’s said enough, and if he wants any more contact, he can speak with her attorney. She’ll give him a list, and he can choose one. She tells him that he knows where the door is, and he thanks her for her time.
David is knocking on Hanna’s door as she pulls up. She asks what he’s doing there, and he says they need to talk about her son. Hanna asks what about him, and David says he knows Benny buried Quincy’s body. He needs to turn himself in or be arrested for murder.
Next time, Hanna talks to Benny about Veronica, Kathryn tells Jim that she doesn’t need him, Veronica asks Melissa where her alcohol went, and Candace wonders what she’d look like in the White House.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Camille’s daughter is walking the runway, and they’re both excited. Malan Breton, the designer, who’s using way too many fillers, tells Mason he’s proud of her. She’s blossomed.
The ladies get in the limo. The silence is deafening. In her interview, Kyle says it’s the most awkward car ride she’s had in a long time. She didn’t know Dorit was capable of being quiet for this long, and it’s making her more uncomfortable. She says it doesn’t feel like they’re gong to a fashion show. In her interview, Dorit says it was a sh*tty night and she had a bad night’s sleep. She has nothing to say, and doesn’t want to be there. They head for the Intrepid where the show is. Dorit sits between LisaR and Erika, because it’s safer and she doesn’t want to talk to anyone else.
Kyle gets choked up seeing Mason. LisaR relates to Camille because of her own daughters. Most of the clothes are fabulous, except for this sequined thing with marabou feathers on the sleeves. The ballgown Mason wears at the end is to die for. It looks like something out of a fairytale. Erika says Camille is so supportive, and they went crazy cheering Mason on. Camille couldn’t be any prouder. Backstage, LVP congratulates both of them. LisaR wonders what’s going on, and then wonders if she really wants to know.
Kyle is opening a new store in the city. Everyone gets glammed up. Kyle’s hairstylist wants to cut her hair. She decides to take a risk – and pretend. He creates a faux bob for her. LisaR asks her what’s going on. Kyle says nobody is talking to anybody. She tells LisaR about Dorit wanting to take a cab home, and LVP saying she’d go with her. Kyle says she never gets credit for defending LVP, and we flash back to some of that. LisaR says Kyle would throw herself in front of a bus for LVP. Kyle says no, but maybe under it. In her interview, LisaR says Kyle has stood up for LVP in ways she never would. She tells us threesomes always lead to trouble.
Dorit never tries things on because she likes the thrill. Not me. Nothing is less thrilling than finding out something doesn’t fit correctly at the last minute.

One of the designers is her godson, who was on Project Runway Junior when he was a kid.
In the limo/bus, Erika tells the ladies that every day, she wears a costume. It’s not an outfit, but a personality. Tonight, she’s Kim Bassinger from 9½ Weeks. We go down Erika’s costume Memory Lane. She says you have to switch it up and have depth, otherwise dressing up is no fun.

Kyle needs to grow some balls, have some dignity, and stop it. Why is she kissing LVP’s ass? IMO, it’s because LVP is everything, can do no wrong, and is the patron saint of dogs.
