For a man who has received two total minutes of screen time not only in this entire episode but also in this entire season, there sure is a whole lot of discussion about Tom. He is the main topic of conversation because all of the women have to endure the second of Luann’s engagement parties, this one held on the boat No Bada Bees, a name that doesn’t make any sense until you realize that it is owned by a woman named Kimberlie who obviously was never Hooked on Phonics but perhaps several other substances, including injectables.
The women spend so much time talking about this one man that a show starring six middle-aged women doesn’t even pass the Bechdel Test because every conversation revolves around their relationships with men. As Ramona, Sonja, and others point out, the crowd at the party is somewhere between a mixer at the third-most expensive senior center in South Florida and a cruise for especially rabid Andrea Mc Ardle fans.
This episode sounds like taking attendance at a Boy Scout meeting in Dublin.
At one point, Sonja Tremont Morgan of the Nipztix Morgans is entertaining a man who looks like the ghost of Dominick Dunne with his white hair, dapper attire, and round glasses.
She doesn’t really bring it up unless other people ask her about it (which is constantly, but whatever). However, Luann keeps trying to erase Sonja’s past with her fiancé as if it was inconsequential, and Tom is icing her out because he doesn’t want to deal with an uncomfortable situation.
This brings us back to how shockingly narcissistic Luann is being about the whole Tom scenario the fact that he dated one of her friends and had a long-standing intimate relationship with another. But Luann is only worried about how Sonja’s behavior will affect her.
"She's going away tomorrow with her kids to regroup. Most recently, the mother of two stepped out at Jill Zarin's charity luncheon where she assured fans that her relationship was on good terms.Sonja says that she is ready to stop dating younger men and settle down with such a person but, I have to tell you, Sonja can do way better than this. Of all the people in this episode, I feel the worst for Sonja, because if you get Sonja sober and wistful on the outside, imagine what it must be like on the inside.Say what you will about my favorite floozie, but she is one hell of a catch. Sonja’s problem is that she does everything right in this situation and no one gives her any credit for it.Perhaps the behavior further proves that Luann really wanted things to be a-okay."Luann denied all the rumors because she was trying to make it work.having shot just three episodes of its newly announced eighth and final season, star Felicity Huffman took a moment during the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour to talk about what she currently knows the future holds for her character, Lynette.
