This episode introduces viewers to nefarious dinner host, Thomas Kramer. A morally corrupt person whose every word is a sexual innuendo or criticism.
Some of the housewives laugh or hang on his every word. They are impressed with his wealth and man cave. The easily influenced guests include, apologist Lea, co-host Karent, strip pole dancer Lisa, and do nothing Adriana all with male escorts. TK's not going to verbally attack his guests if there's a male he might have to worry about.
We are shown through brilliant editing, the contrast between those who are heroically inspirational against those who are morally poor in spirit! Ana was shown to be a shining example for all who have been bullied. After TK's verbal assault, she proudly exits the man cave after a few her own well chosen words. Marysol and her mom Elsa leave after AJ's insulting screaming fit. While Lea, standing table side, defends bully Kramer in order to stop another victim of his, Johanna from tearfully explaining her humiliation at the hands of TK.
Lea, the pillar of Miami, comes to not one denigrated cast mates aid. The only one she manically defends is the perpetrator of all the bullying...Thomas Kramer. She then sits down and smiles like the cat who ate the canary! A biblical saying comes to mind for Lea, "What does a man profit, if he gains the whole world, and suffers the loss of his own soul?"
Thank you for a spectacular episode which revealed Lea Black's character flaws. Joe Francis and James/Elaine gave us insight, but Thomas Cramer gave us the overwhelming evidence of her lack of moral spirit!!!
