The family dinner scene was really interesting to me. I felt so sad for Pearl in this scene. She feels like she is really a part of this family, but already Bill is talking about evicting them, Tripp has moved all his guilt onto Pearl, and both Lexi/Elena see themselves as graciously reaching out to someone like Pearl.
