'The A-List: Dallas' Season Finale Recap: "You're Not Supposed to Fornicate"
[Cue GarageBand synth hook ... "Nevah had a buoy like me DA DA DA!"]
Scene 1: Levi meets up with his country-bear rodeo mentor, Wade, to talk about an opportunity for ropin' redemption. Since Leev wasn't cleared by the doc to straddle an actual buckin' bronco, Wade's gonna let him do some announcing and praying over the P.A. at the upcoming gay rodeo world championships in Fort Worth. Levi is speechless, suddenly realizing that announcing rodeo events has been his real dream all along. He can barely hold back croc tears. Side note: Don't you think Levi and Wade would make a hot brokeback couple? I mean, our cowboy usually goes for the pretty ones, but he could use a rough-and-tumble top in his tent every once in a while. Just a thought.
Scene 2: Li'l Tay Tay's in LA, wearing his best V-neck sweater and chatting with Jimmy, a board member of the GOProud gay-conservo organization, about a possible consulting gig. The dude wants to know how Tay can bring in the big donors. We get a sudden vision of Taylor waiting in a hotel room in only a kimono, but we're quickly brought back to reality as Jimmy announces he'll be lunching with Ann Coulter the next day. "Can I come?" asks a wide-eyed Taylor, with visions of Nazi Barbies dancing in his head. Of course, sez Jimmy. After all, she's on the GOProud board, and it'll be good to see how Taylor interacts with "celebrities." And then Jimmy gets in the most ridiculous line of the episode (yet): "You know, conservative women are hot ... cuz they're happy."
Scene 3: Back in Dallas, Chase and Levi go for a little lover's walk around the lake. Levi invites his fling-a-ding to the rodeo, says he's nervous about praying publicly. Chase suggests getting prayin' tips from Ashley (because she's so adept at communicating with the lord). The next topic introduced by the cowboy, randomly, is Taylor's upcoming meeting with Ann Coulter (word sure travels fast!). Chase picks his jaw up off the ground and makes his feelings about this abundantly clear: "God, I hate that woe-man."
Scene 4: Levi has James and Phillip over for a barbecue, during which the three dish the dirt on the upcoming rodeo and other thangs. Phil's actually likeable in this scene, thanks to a few ultra-snarky comments. Levi: "It's the International Gay Rodeo Association World Championship Finals Rodeo." Phil: "Oh my god, that's so many words." Then James gets in a zinger. Phil: "What's so gay about it?" James: "They take it up the ass." AND THEN, in cutaway, Phil says what we're all thinking, that Levi the mumbler might not be the best choice for an announcer. "Heyeverbodywelcumtothagayrodeo!" he mocks. Loving these men right now. Well, until the talk moves to Levi's relasha-ship with Chase. Phillip becomes his old self again, grilling Leev about his intentions. This has been covered enough.
Scene 5: Coulter lunch date in full effeck. And dear Ann is surprisingly delightful at conversatin' ... until she tells Taylor that he shouldn't listen to his gay loins. That's what Jesus said, she claims. Ann: "You're not supposed to fornicate. I just want that on the table [haughty laugh]." Taylor: "Oops [uncomfortable laugh]." Can't wait until Chase hears about this. His hair might spontaneously combust.
Scene 6: Levi, Phillip and James are drinking together at a wine bar. James announces that he's moving to LA. We're guessing because he doesn't have any unpaid bar tabs there. But no; he wants to continue his quest for an acting career, after that life-changing audition for 'Chubby Chasers.' Leev and Phillip are worried about how Ashley will react to James' news, since she's his self-appointed sponsor. James is equally frightened. We know, girl. Those curls can be intimidating.
