Yes, he did pile on the disasters at the end. I think what bugged me about Thomas was that he seemed to be telling her to go back for the sake of appearances, rather than because he thought it was the best thing for Tony.

And it seemed that Tony was the one who ostracised herself by expecting everyone else to speak to her first, rather than being prepared to approach others. But I suppose that was all part of this glorifying of the family that made her think herself superior to everyone else.
