Vanderpump Rules Season 3 Episode 18 Recap: Stassi Gets Dethroned, and HARD

by at .

On Vanderpump Rules Season 3 Episode 18, the third season of Bravo's hit series concluded with drama, laughs, fights, confrontations and ultimatums.

Just a typical day at the SUR office. Or in this case, SUR anniversary bash.

If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you're aware that some of these storylines have been building all season. Some of them even longer than that.

Stassi Schroeder decided to attent SUR’s anniversary party on Vanderpump Rules Season 3 Episode 18, and that alone raised the stakes tenfold.

Of course, that's probably the only reason she got an invite. Would you want to be around Stassi without cameras rolling, drama to be caused and ratings to secure?

We think not. At all. But hey, she served her intended purpose Monday.

Obviously, Schroeder's presence was not exactly welcomed by her former colleagues, but there was plenty of additional drama to go around as well.

Much of it involved Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix and Miami Girl, the unattractive Florida woman he may or may not have exchanged more than conversation with.

Did he or did he not cheat on Ariana with Annemarie Kunkel, which Kristen Doute has made it her life's mission to prove, for kind of no reason at all?

It's still not clear, but with Tom and Ariana BOTH denying there is any truth to the rumor, which Jax Taylor played a role in spreading, does it really matter?

Even Kristen finally seemed to realize how pointless her Miami Girl crusade has become, and said she would let fate take care of this from here on out.

Sometimes, leaving it up to fate beats getting tagged in the face.

Doute even wished Tom and Ariana luck on their relationship, albeit with an obvious eye roll that Ariana's best friend Scheana Marie called her out on.

Still, a week without physical violence is progress for Kristen.

As for Stassi, she tried to mend fences with Katie Maloney, with whom she argued over the latter's decision to attend Scheana's bachelorette party.

Her attempt to bury the hatchet without really apologizing didn't go that well, but when Jax Taylor walked in, Stassi booked it like SUR was on fire.

Cue the montage of not-so-sad farewells to Ms. Schroeder.

Not unlike the celebratory clips of the staff rejoicing at Kristen Doute's firing, each SUR staffer said goodbye to something of Stassi’s as she was "Dethroned."

That was the title of the Season 3 finale, and the cast members fittingly bid farewell to her crown (and her obsession over her birthday, and so much more).

Finally, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney discussed his fear of commitment. He tried sharing his feelings with Katie ... who gave him six months to propose.

If not, she's done. So the clock is ticking, baby!

Don't expect any rings on strings this time, although it's unclear when this was filmed and whether Tom is really going to man up and take the plunge.

What do you think? Will he do it? Did Tom cheat on Ariana? Who is crazier, Kristen, Jax or Stassi? Hit the comments to discuss all things Vanderpump Rules?
