We are back at Caroline’s dinner party where Noelle is whispering into Marissa’s ear. Lady Julie asks if that is something she learned in her etiquette class. Up until now, that’s the snarkiest comment from the usually diplomatic Lady Julie. By George, I think she’s got it! 

Caprice is on her way to Caroline’s dinner party to resolve the horrible energy. When she arrives, Lady Julie is the only one excited to see her. Caroline is perturbed that Caprice didn’t acknowledge her first, as proper manners dictate. Caprice is perturbed that Caroline didn’t stand to greet her, as proper manners dictate. Caprice sits next to Noelle and an awkward chit-chat ensues with the rest of the ladies. Caroline suggests they move to the other end of the veranda to relax. Caprice announces that she can’t stay because she’s had a really long day and she’s really tired and her surrogate called to say she’s dilated and could have the baby any minute. Umm, Caprice, that’s not exactly what she said. The ladies ask why she hasn’t gotten on a plane immediately.

Then a funny thing happens. All the ladies need to simultaneously go to the loo. Except Juliet, who Caroline has to ask to go to the loo so Caroline can discuss the elephant in the room with Caprice. Not exactly a nice thing to say to a pregnant women, but we understand what Caroline means. Caprice says she has no issue—this is Caroline’s issue. Caroline says fine,  her issue is with shower-gate. There is a disagreement between being asked to host the party versus offering to host the party. In an effort to change the subject, Caprice says that she learned something very upsetting today. Her issue is Caroline’s “borderline bullying” of Noelle and Marissa who graciously offered to throw Caprice a shower. However, if memory serves correctly, Marissa didn’t offer either. She was recruited. Caroline says she will get the emails to prove it and warns Caprice about using the word bully. Caprice says it’s time for her to leave, but not before Caroline reads her the email proving the point that shower-gate was not offered, but asked.

Ladies of London

Caprice says again that she is leaving and tells Marissa she has a gift for her in the car. This is just a ploy to get Marissa alone, but Caroline is incensed that Caprice has brought a gift for a guest and not for the host. I mean, even Noelle brought a bottle of champagne, even if she did drink it on the way. Caroline calls Noelle a “frickin $hit-stirrer” though Noelle isn’t there to hear it. When Noelle joins the ladies, Caroline asks her to clarify the supposed bullying she was put through.

Ladies of London

We then shift to the front of the house where Caprice is telling Lady Julie and Marissa her version of events with her British accent suddenly becoming more pronounced. Caprice said she questioned why Caroline would bully Marissa and Noelle about throwing her a baby shower. Marissa explains that she understands where Caroline is coming from. She’s the new girl. Who is she to come in and take over hosting duties? 

We shift back to Caroline who tells Noelle that she wasn’t being bullied. Noelle says she never used that word. She said, “Giving us a hard time.” Caroline then lowers the boom and tells Noelle she cannot come into her home, eat her food, drink her wine (and champagne) and pretend to be her friend, while actually playing off the two of them. Noelle is drunk confused about where the b-word came from. And she’s also miffed that she’s taking the heat while Marissa has slipped under the radar. What radar is that? Marissa didn’t insert herself in the middle of this mess.

Ladies of London

Back out front again, Caprice yet again mentions how gracious it was for Marissa to offer to throw the baby shower for her. Marissa says that she definitely remembers Caprice bringing up the idea for her to throw the baby shower. Caprice is caught and claims pregnancy brain. Noelle joins Caprice and Marissa out front and begins mumbling about the heat she is taking from Caroline and her baby shower and being a bad person. I’m actually feeling bad for Noelle at this point and wish someone would serve her a cup of tea. 

Caprice explains the she was the one who used the word bully. Marissa says she will deal with it. She goes back to Caroline and tells her how upset Noelle is and that it was Caprice who used the b-word. Caprice, who was supposed to leave thirty minutes ago, returns to Caroline to inform her that it was she who said the b-word. What she meant to say was, mean. By this point, no one cares. Caroline tells Caprice that she cannot call her a bully in her own home and asks her to leave. Caprice (finally) does and Lady Julie leaves with her. Caroline asks Noelle to think before she speaks in the future so not to cause unnecessary drama. Kudos to Juliet who is usually the one being accused of this. 

Ladies of London

The following morning there is a rehashing of the events from the night before. Caprice and Annabelle are on the phone. Marissa and Noelle are on the phone. And Caroline and Juliet are together at Caroline’s house. Annabelle tells Caprice she’s being harsh calling Caroline a bully. Noelle says she feels bad for putting herself in the middle. And Juliet says she’s enjoying being the rational one…for once. 

We join Caprice in Los Angeles. Her surrogate is in labor. Things are progressing slowly, but we finally hear the beautiful sounds of a newborn crying. It’s sweet to see Caprice cuddling her son. After a quick shot of Annabelle moving about with more ease on her crutches, she is shown the black and white striped jersey with skull head that she would have worn in the horse race. Annabelle says that she has gotten better at asking for help. Back with Caprice, she goes into labor and gives birth to her first baby and second son. She says that she’s heard from Lady Julie, Annabelle, and Marissa, but hasn’t heard from the other ladies, and doesn’t care.

Ladies of London

The final scene is at the Audi Polo Cup that is attended by Royals and Bianca Jagger. As usual for Bravo, they have a TH with each personality, and then an update. So to end this series in the same fashion we started, here is the update for each of the ladies:

Noelle – Has learned to be more strategic in her thinking and actions. The court ruled Scot’s worth at 40 million pounds. His ex-wife was awarded 20 million pounds. Scot proposed to Noelle the next day with a 6 carat diamond ring. 

Juliet – Has learned that she’s not going to change the American inside. She and her family will be staying in London, though she doesn’t feel the need for anymore etiquette lessons.

Marissa – Feels that she has come into her own during this whirlwind summer. She’s had a second baby boy and now has an heir and a spare.

Caroline – Has decided to spend the remainder of the summer away from London. She has not spoken with Caprice since her dinner party, but still socializes with Juliet and the other Americans.

Caprice – Says there is a new Caprice and Caroline had better watch out. She is back in London and still never received her baby shower.

Annabelle – Has learned to appreciate life and be humble. She plans to ride again.

With the season finale over marking the conclusion to season one of the Ladies of London, there’s just one thing left to say: Please come back for season 2!

    Excellent recap, Dani-K. Thank you. I am going to miss this show. I hope there will be a reunion filmed.

  • Fantabulous recap Dani-K! You nailed the episode. I sincerely have enjoyed this season and hope the ladies can return for a second season.

    Carole handled Caprice like a professional. She shut down her lies and sent her on her merry way back to London. I was LOL at that scene. Great finale. Too bad they’re not having a reunion.

    • Babson_Chick

      Hi Doc!! How are you doing??? Heard about Yo’s daughter Bella Hadid (17) getting arrested for DUI & also had suspended license. She was released on bail to step dad David.

      • Hey Babs! I’m well, thanks. No surprise about Bella. A DUI’s are a right of passage for rich kids. I sent you an email. Check when you have a chance.

    • Jennymckitty

      Oh, no reunion? I am sorry to read that. I wondered if Andy was shooting something during his European vacation with AC.

      • Hi Jenny. Caroline said she asked for one and was told “no reunion.” That really sucks. I hope it’s not an indicator of no season 2.

    • RealitySuxx

      Noooooooooooooooo…no reunion??? Dang it!

    • Dani-K

      No reunion?! Somebody call the waaambulance. Waaaa!

  • Babson_Chick

    Thanks for the great recap Dani. Love this show and do hope it comes back. Thought that Caprice remains to be so full of herself and w/o gracious manners (wonder why she isn’t married). Caroline remains posh and my fav. Noelle needs to grow up.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Noelle needs to just go away!!! Scott deserves so much better!!

  • Jennymckitty

    The way Caprice talks and fake laughs reminds me of Laurie Warring from OC. She annoys me. I’m sure she went into this banking she would be the fan favorite.

    • twifan2

      Thank you, Jennymckitty! I don’t like Capers at all now! Whinny, me me me! UGH!
      She does look like OC’s LW!
      Capers should have stayed in the OC! :/

      • noarguingwithstupid

        I ended up fast forwarding all Caprice. She is a total whack job and needs to just realize she is not all that!!!! Anabelle rocks!

        • twifan2

          ITA with you NAWS! 🙂
          Glad you back-even for a bit. 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Thank you my sweets!!!! I really loved the show and hope it comes back sans Caprice!!! Hope all is well with you!!!! Pennster is fine.

    • Birdie11

      Did you notice when she tried to say mummy…it came out mauwmy…her speech is so affected and ridic.

      • noarguingwithstupid

        How about when she said “silly”!!!!! She REALLY wants to be a Brit!!!

  • twifan2

    Thank you Dani-K for your incredible recap(s) of LOL!
    Enjoyed them more than the actual show! 🙂

    • Dani-K

      Thanks! I’m sad that it’s over. Hopefully there will be a season 2. I’m curious if a wedding will actually take place for Noelle and Scot.

      • twifan2

        I think there might be a wedding for them…IF there are Pre-nups signed.
        I actually do believe there will be second season-not all of the ladies may be coming back, but the ratings were ok for this show.

        • Dani-K

          I think you are absolutely right! Most likely Annabelle won’t return. But I see the others signing on.

  • Birdie11

    I love this show…that ending polo scene was delish. I love Caroline…can’t stand Caprice…I hope it comes back!!

    • My favorite part was Caroline’s dismissal of Caprice, “I’m a bully? You can leave my house now!” BOOM!!!!

  • Norrth

    I liked this show so much more than I thought I would. Oddly enough, the women I like least are Caprice and Noelle. I’m fine with everyone else. I wish Caprice would pick an accent and stick with it. I can’t see Juliet pulling the intermittent accents shtick. I have to wonder how London society views Caprice and Noelle after this, and Noelle didn’t seem to have a good reputation before the show.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I agree 100 percent!!!! Caprice was awful, and makes American wannabe Brits look like idiots!!!! Juliet said it best when she reminded everyone that they all were Moms, but Caprice had to be just so friggin’ “special”. Very tiresome.

    • equinox2009

      I really like Juliet – she’s real!

  • equinox2009

    Everything is all about Caprice and when it’s not she starts whining to.bring the attention back to her. Why is it that where ever she goes she is starving and gets cranky because she’s tired-Prima Dona! She makes a big whining entrance always. You would think she is the only one in the world who is pregnant! This is the basis for her attention seeking. She can go now! By the way her “plastic ” looking face is just that!
