Beginning with the previous episode, I began to wonder if Ann Walker was conning Anne. Once I started looking at it from that perspective, the signs seemed to be everywhere. I don't mean a con in the legal sense, just that she may have been playing with Anne's emotions until she got tired of her.
I was still wondering during the latest episode, including whether the reverend had raped her or it was consensual, but then the story got really ugly and now I'm back to thinking Ann W. is a vapid helpless nitwit (and a creature of her times).
The moment when Anne asked to borrow money was kind of weird and feels like a plot device.
Auntie Lister and the brash gentleman caller were hilarious.
