My biggest revelation re-watching the fight at Scheana's birthday party is everyone mistakenly insisting that James initiated it. I can't wrap my head around how Tom shoving his hand in James' face equates to James/I starting a fight.
In hindsight, I wish I would not have gotten involved, but, when a bunch of guys tried to "jump" my boyfriend my fight or flight instincts definitely kicked in. I suppose there's no longer a question over where my loyalties lie.
Peter's demeanor and holier than thou attitude during this entire episode made me cringe and crack up at the same time. He's a manager at a restaurant and his theatrics were just a little overboard. Everyone at SUR drinks while working, Peter included.
I would like to thank Jax for stating my case for me when he told Tom "I felt like you were kind of in the situation I'm in," acknowledging Tom was basically dating both Ariana and I at the same time. I'm sure we can all see how much better off Tom is now judging by the state of his apartment. Now you guys know what I went through every day and why I felt like I was Tom's maid and assistant for so many years.
His over dramatic sobbing video was one of the most ridiculous things I've ever witnessed. He's a good actor, I'll give him that. Scheana, per usual, followed the crowd and decided James and I were responsible rather than accepting the reality of the fight.
What also irritates me about this episode is the way that Jax downplayed his relationship with Carmen. He is the furthest thing from honest. He always does the "it's not you, it's me" to excuse his bad behavior. I'm so proud of Carmen for standing up for herself, straightening her crown and walking away like a boss.
