Do it big, Do it right and Do it with style.

-Fred Astaire


THOMAS PONDERS HIS NEXT STEPS WITH ASHELY. AUSTEN'S PARENTS PUSH HIM PROFESSIONALLY, WHILE CRAIG HIRES A COACH TO HELP HIM GET HIS LIFE ON TRACK. NAOMIE GETS WIND OF CRAIG'S NEW CRUSH, AND TURNS AUSTEN'S HALLOWEEN PARTY INTO A HOUSE OF HORRORS.

Craig gets a life coach to rescues his relationship- on the advice of an Uber Driver.

Cameron meets her mom- the same one she laments back and forth on whether her mother is the cause of her lack of maternal instinct and being grateful for it.

Shep, Chelsea, Naomie and Austen meet to discuss Peyton- the plant by the producers who is trying to get an acting job (which apparently on Linked In- dog grooming is the new term for it) and Naomie takes the crazy bait when she learns that Craig is attracted to her. Poor Naomie is getting a bad edit this season- in previous seasons, everyone commended her anger and sh*t talking about Craig and built her up as being too good for the Charleston Renaissance man with ADHD. We need to remember that most people when going through a break up do not have cameras in their face while trying to process it. Let's give the girl some patience. Chelsea is the one who set up Naomie up with the crazy bait about Peyton; she forgot that a hair dresser is held by the same honor code as priest and therapists when it comes to obligation to not tell secrets.

Craig meets Kathryn at the sewing shop- his escape when big bad Naomie is being mean to him. Kathryn shows the dysfunction in their relationship when she makes the comparison to her and Thomas; a big blast of cold IPA to the face. 

Austen meets his family to reinforce his image as the harmless indecisive good 'ol boy. HIs parents are basically telling him to decide on a beer and they will invest. Cue the suspense music: will Austen be willing to leave his life of leisure and having girls pay for his dates to woo him?

Peyton and Austen decided to host a Halloween Party together to introduce the imposter to the group- you know to raise the Naomie crazy flag- producers not realizing it was not necessary to do so when Ashley would be competing this for position later on in other episodes.

Austen decides to come as the way he sees himself in the mirror- Chick Magnet.

Craig is breathing so it pisses off Naomie.

She goes off on Peyton after gossiping all over the party about her; I bet this girl had no idea what she was getting into when she followed Shep to the Charleston after his rejection. I hope she was compensated for the dressing down that Naomie delivered to her. At least with some new Instagram followers to put on her acting resume.

ALLIE'S FAMILY SUMMER HOUSE FROM THE NOTEBOOK

Boone Hall Plantation was featured in NIcolas Sparks'  movie The Notebook. The mansion is located near Charleston, South Carolina and is one of the oldest working farms in the United States. Operating for 320 years, it also offers tours since 1956. At one point, it produced cotton and pecans, now it produces strawberries, tomatoes, and peaches.

In 1681, Englishman Major John Boone came to Charleston to establish a plantation on the banks of Wampacheone Creek. The property was a 470 acre land grant from Theophilus Patey to the major for marrying his daughter, Elizabeth. They were also ancestors of John Rutledge, a Founding Father. The Colonial Revival home located on the property, and open to tours, was completed in 1936. The original house was lost and but the Avenue of Oaks, planted in 1743, remains which span over a kilometer.

Major John Boone was one of the first settlers in the South Carolina colony. In the 1680s, he was elected to the Grand Council but was removed twice. He had been found to be illegally dealing in Indian slaves, having associations with pirates and also concealing stolen goods. Tax assessor and highway commissioner would be other public offices that Boone would hold. His wife and five children would inherit the property upon his death.

In 1811, the property would be sold. Later, two brothers in the brick business, Henry and John Horlbeck would purchase the business. By 1850, the property would help produce more than 4,000,000 bricks that built much of downtown Charleston. They also planted pecans, which the property became the leading producer in the United States.
