Gnat’s apartment. Ang drops in. Gnat is making chicken. Ang can't wait to tell her about what Natalie D had to say at the calendar party. Ang says she and Drita are always siding with her, but this Natalie D has a lot to say about Gnat. Natalie D tells them Gnat was calling them names like old hags and Ang tells them she is going to talk to Gnat. Gnat says she doesn’t know this Natalie D. Gnat is pissed that Natalie D always has her name in her mouth. Ang says she believes Gnat, she has always shown her loyalty and she doesn’t know Natalie D from a hole in the wall. I am still waiting to find out how Gnat has been showing loyalty? Gnat denies saying anything about Ang and Drita. Ang wants Gnat to talk to Drita. Gnat feels she is being attacked and then when she attacks she is the one who is wrong. Gnat is not going to let Natalie D get between her and her friendships with Ang and Drita. Natalie D is spreading lies about her and Gnat promises to put an end to it.
Over in Arizona Karen sees her lawyer about her medical marijuana business. She wants to make sure if she pursues this it isn’t going to put her at risk. She doesn’t want to go to jail because of her last name and her previous issues with selling ecstasy. Her father is in jail there. The lawyer tells her it will cost about $250,000. The names of people who want to start a business goes into a pool and names are drawn. Many criminals go into this business. Karen likes that.
Ang and her son are shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Ang wants to have the girls over. Ang is thankful her son is out of prison. Ang wants the girls to straighten out their shit.

Gnat says she has to constantly prove herself and it hurts bad sniff sniff. She tells Drita she has a lot to offer as a friend and she gets teary eyed, Boo Hoo.
Drita says she is sincere and it hurts her. Gnat says Karen and Renee hate her, and it kills them that they can’t get rid of her. Drita’s advice is to agree to disagree. No one is going to admit they are wrong. She says be the bigger person and move on. Gnat says that is why she sent the text to Renee. Unfortunately for Gnat, she misunderstood Renee’s comments that the “ding dong,” ringing the bell time expired. Drita seems happy Gnat had good intentions. They agree they are going to Ang’s for Thanksgiving and Drita thinks Renee and Gnat will make amends.
Karen is upset with Dave and she tells her brother Gerard about how she feels. He was supposed to visit with Karina during their trip to Arizona. Karen feels he isn’t making time for her and he should be treasuring every moment he can with her. He missed so much of her life. Karina feels she doesn’t fit into his life with his new wife and baby. Karen is frustrated by Dave’s lack of interest in his child. She took her to prison for years so they could have a relationship and now that he is out he makes no effort to see her. Karen wants her to have a protective father like the one she had.

Giselle is packing for Florida. Drita talks to her girls about their vacation. Drita needs the vacation more than anyone, all she does is work.
Renee is planning a night of celebrating Mob Candy’s one year anniversary. Karen shows up and tells Renee about her trip to Arizona and how Dave didn’t spend time with Karina like they planned. Ang and Drita show up next. Ang says she is happy things are going well for Renee and hopes her good attitude lasts till her Thanksgiving dinner. Renee thanks all the ladies for coming, they have all loved and supported her. Renee wants to give the crown to the “biggest B*tch.” Drita says Renee is in such a good mood it’s the perfect time for her to make amends with Gnat. So Drita tells Renee she spoke to Gnatalie and she felt she was genuine. Renee says will not sit across a table from Gnat at Thanksgiving until she has a conversation with her. Renee says, “I want her to apologize. I am going to give her a chance, but only if it’s ok with Karen.” So Renee goes to talk to Karen and tells her about the text message she received from Gnat for dinner and drinks for old times sake. Renee says she and Gnat will never be friends again, but if she apologizes maybe they can be civil. Renee adds Ang invited her to Thanksgiving and Gnat will be there, but one sly remark, she will walk out. Karen says it’s up to Renee. Karen says she is not going as long as Gnat is there, but she trusts Renee and Gnat is not a threat to their friendship.
Ang is at home preparing an early Thanksgiving. Drita, Gnat and Renee are coming and Ang is hoping Gnat and Renee can work things out. Gnat wants the drama to end. Gnat and Drita love Ang’s house. Drita says she knows Gnat and Renee are going to be friends. She tells them last night Carla came to Renee’s party. She tells them Renee hated Carla about fives more than she hates Gnatalie. They were at war, but they ended up making up.
“I want you to apologize for all the harsh things that were said.” Gnat says apologize is bull sh*t. But Gnat seems to have second thoughts. Gnat admits her mouth is very harsh. Gnat says she felt betrayed and hurt. Gnat says she felt close to her at one time and she still cares about Renee. Gnat says she crossed the line and apologizes for that. Renee is in complete shock and so am I. I never thought she would say those words. Renee says, “Karen is my family and if you disrespect her, you disrespect me.” Gnat is so willing to apologize to Karen and says “There is no way in hell I will ever apologize to Karen Gravano. And if Renee doesn’t want to be my friend because I won’t apologize to a woman who attacked me on more than one occasion, I don’t know what to tell ya.” I guess this ain't over yet, stay tuned.
Ang and Drita come back in. Renee and Gnat tell them have established a line of respect between the two of them. Renee wants to take it further and include Karen. The line of respect has nothing to do with friendship. Renee is loyal to Karen. They sit down to eat and enjoy the food. No screaming, no fist fights. Renee is keeping her enemies closer.
