The season 13 episode titled ‘The Witching Hour’ began with Ramona Singer, 64, telling her friend Bershan to take it easy on Sonja.

Bershan told her that the women were babying Sonja.

‘She’s not strong like you and me. She’s not. I’m telling you please recognize that,’ Ramona replied.

Bershan told her that she supports women, but that Sonja was acting out.

Ramona told her she didn’t disagree with her but that Sonja had been her good friend for a long time. Ramona told Bershan that she ‘threw a firebomb tonight.’

‘I think a firebomb was needed,’ Bershan said. ‘I think you guys needed a fresh pair of eyes.’

Luann de Lesseps, 56, and Eboni K. Williams, 37, shared an elevator back to their rooms after leaving Bershan and Ramona in the lobby.

Eboni told her that she gave Bershan all the ‘black extra credit points that I could’, but that in the end Bershan was Ramona’s problem.

The show newcomer said in a confessional that she understood these women were a tough group to crack, but that Bershan should have tried to get to know them and ask questions like ‘the first day of second grade.’

It turned out the argument between Sonja and Bershan re-ignited and got physical.

The next morning, Leah called Luann from her room and told her that Bershan and Sonja got into a physical fight later in the night.

Bershan had come to Leah’s room to get melatonin to sleep when Sonja appeared.

‘They were both drunk,’ Leah said.

The footage from the night before played and it showed Sonja yelling at Bershan after she called her drunk, which set Sonja off.

‘Don’t you come into my life in 10 seconds and tell me who I am,’ Sonja yelled at Bershan and pointed her finger in her face.

Bershan put her finger in Sonja’s face and said ‘get your f***ing hand’ away.

Leah got in the middle of the fight as Sonja and Bershan screamed at each other’s faces. Leah pushed Sonja away and screamed for them to stop and to be careful about her nose job. A producer outside the room screamed for them to let him in.

Leah opened the door and the producer and another man rushed into the room and grabbed Sonja away. On her way out in the hallway, while still being held by a crew member Sonja smashed the glass on the fire extinguisher with her bag.

The crew member said ‘she has taken this s*** too far’ as he held Sonja and restrained her down the hall of the Salem hotel.

Leah said that Bershan’s comment to Sonja about being drunk set her off.

‘She sticks her nose in business that is not hers,’ Luann said while adding, ‘for a life coach that is pretty f***ed up.’

Luann went to Leah’s room to discuss the incident and Leah wondered if Sonja would act like nothing happened.

‘She’s not going to remember what happened,’ Luann said.

Ramona showed up at Leah’s room ready to go when Luann and Leah told her about Sonja.

‘So she lost it,’ said Ramona.

Luann told Ramona that it was her responsibility to go and talk to Bershan about how she should approach all the women so that they could start this day out on a good foot.

Ramona and Leah then discussed Sonja’s drinking. Leah said she asked Sonja if she ever thought she wanted to stop drinking and if she had a problem with alcohol.

‘She does,’ said Ramona. ‘She drinks all the time. ‘

Leah asked her how they could make a person see that ‘unless we have an actual intervention with her. …We are being irresponsible if we don’t talk to her about this.’

Ramona agreed that they should talk to Sonja.

‘I would want someone to talk to me if I was getting drunk and punching glass,’ Leah said in a confessional.

She added that ‘this isn’t just an isolated incident.’

Ramona went to talk to Bershan about what happened. Bershan admitted that the situation with Sonja escalated when Sonja ‘got in my face.’

Bershan said ‘she took it too far.’ She added that ‘you do that with the wrong person and you get knocked out.’ Bershan also said that she planned on speaking to the other women about the other misconceptions that happened between them.

Back in Leah’s room, she called Eboni and filled her in on what happened. She told her that they planned to talk to Sonja about her drinking.

Ramona went to Sonja’s room where Sonja told her it was ‘loser night.’

‘I wanted to have a fun night and party and dance and we ended up with cheap wine and Bershan,’ she told Ramona.

Ramona told her that she needed a ‘good pharmaceutical psychiatrist’ as they left the room and walked down the hall and Sonja told her that she had one. They ran into Bershan at the elevator.

Bershan and Sonja didn’t speak.

The women then all got into a van for a 40-minute ride to their lunch destination.

‘This van ride is going to be like purgatory and I don’t know who is going to heaven and who is going to hell,’ Luann said in a confessional.

The women agreed to have a quiet ride and Bershan fell asleep.

At lunch later, Bershan cried and apologized to the women. She said she acted familiar with women who she wasn’t familiar with.

Bershan also apologized to Sonja.

Sonja said she felt like Bershan had betrayed her trust.

When Ramona told a waiter to bring Kleenex, Sonja yelled ‘shut the f*** up Ramona.’

‘There is a lot of anger in Sonja,’ Ramona said in a confessional. ‘She is snapping at me like a turtle and it’s not turtle time.’

Sonja told Bershan she was angry at her for mimicking her.

Bershan apologized again and the two hugged.

After lunch, the group went back to the hotel and changed for their seance. Eboni said in a confessional that she was ‘freaked out’ about this seance thing. Leah said in a confessional that she was nervous about what would happen.

At the restaurant/seance, Sonja and Bershan went straight for the bar and ordered espresso martinis. Ramona said they should go talk to Sonja before she gets too buzzed. Ramona secretly hid Sonja’s drink and then told her to come with her.

Luann and Leah were waiting when Ramona brought Sonja over. Leah told Sonja that she thought it would be ‘absolutely irresponsible and f***ed up of us to not say that we think the drinking is going to hurt you. At this point. And we are worried and we want to help.’

Luann asked Sonja what happened last night and told her that ‘I got arrested for even less than that.’

Sonja told them she heard them but that she doesn’t have alcohol in her home, never drinks alone and doesn’t drink on dates.

‘Sonja only gets drunk with us, yeah, I believe that one,’ Ramona said in a confessional.

Sonja got very angry and Ramona said that her reactions were over the top. Ramona said their concern was ‘coming from love.’

Luann in a confessional said ‘everyone has to get to a point where they have a wake up call. I just don’t want her to wake up in a gutter somewhere.’

Sonja said she felt the women were being judgmental.

At the seance, the psychic told Eboni that she saw a woman standing behind her who she thought was her recently passed away grandmother. She told her that her grandmother said that she can carry on the family tradition by being strong for women and passing along that message.

‘This is really affirming,’ said Eboni.

The psychic then turned to Sonja and told her that she had her father here and that he wanted to apologize that ‘he didn’t know what he was doing.’

Sonja started crying. The message from he father was that ‘he was mortified’ for what he did. She said her father left when she was two.

The psychic said Sonja’s father was the root cause of her issues and that she needed someone to help her work through it.

‘The last person I thought would show up for this seance would be my dad because in real life he was always too busy to be a dad,’ Sonja said in a confessional.

The psychic then told Ramona that her younger brother was here and wanted to apologize to her for hurting her.

Ramona started crying that she had pushed her brother away and abandoned him. She said he lived his life on the edge. She said she felt some resolution that her brother came back to her.

Later the mood lightened when Leah realized she had been wearing her dress backwards the whole night and they all laughed.

The Real Housewives Of New York City will return next week on Bravo.
