  1. Sandy has a habit of dismissing the concerns of her chief stews. With Hannah she clearly wanted to drive her to quit so she’d brush Hannah off when she expressed issues with staff. But clearly it’s not just Hannah. For all her “girl power” mantra, Sandy probably disdains the interior and thinks those jobs are easy.
  2. Mzi was worrying me with as many times he hit his head, both on the pavement and the multiple knocks on the boat. He’s such a kind, sweet guy, I hope nothing happens to wreck that impression as the season goes on. Kind of karma that Malia has to be wary about what her roommate might do.
  3. What I've started to notice is that some of the trope-y sitcom plots are following Allison into her "real" world or perhaps she's dragging them along with her. As soon as we saw her throw the pamphlets, face up and oh so visible, into the trash can I knew it was only a matter of time until somehow they were found. The sitcom-beats were there. She threw them away unnecessarily close to her own home and discoverable by anyone who opened the can. Then there was Patty throwing away her picture with the momentary "will she find the pamphlets and think that Allison is double-dealing somehow" to the
  4. Erika says “if he took all this money, where is it, I’ve never seen it”. Not true and badly played. The money was in the hundreds of thousands spent on you being “Erika Jayne” and in the thousands spent on glam squads, and the cars, and the clothes…. That’s what Erika has been flaunting to the world for years and she thinks the judge and lawyers aren’t going to be looking at all of that? She’s a smart woman who is playing her current hand all wrong. There’s no way she was ever going to fully skate on all of this, but her “woe is me, I have to live in this tiny 5000 square foot house with
  5. I agree. She likes to put on the wounded kitten act as well and sadly Eboni seems to be falling for it. Bershan was right to call her a clown and for Sonja to get enraged by that - when her whole schtick is acting goofy and flaky and like a clown? Not buying it. I do think that Bershan came in way too hot and heavy handed at the dinner the night before - clearly working to get her apple - but her apology (though it was clearly strategic) was well done and I was waiting for Sonja to apologize too. What I realized with Sonja is that she and Ramona are two sides of the same coin. Neither re
  6. I too was horrified that she might be putting Patty in the frame deliberately. But I was also thinking that "New Patty" was somehow going to end up eating the drug burger. So a double fake out for me and one that really made me happy as it gave Allison and Patty another connection. This show is doing a phenomenal job with each beat and detail.
  7. Candiace not showing up didn’t have anything to do with Karen. I’m guessing she just didn’t want to shlep all the way out there to Wendy’s. But her excuse looked even more lame given that Ashley made it and she’s giving birth in 10 days.
  8. Generally I feel so bad for any of the "normals" who have to interact with the housewives. People teaching them how to do something (fishing), people giving them a tour, or whatever. So, so painful to have to see someone who cares about their job having to do that job with a group of women who couldn't care less at best and at worst are a bunch of shrieking lunatics. But in these current seasons of HW shows filmed during the pandemic, I think that many of these venues were just so happy to have any customers at all? And customers, horrendous as they are, who are eating, drinking, staying
  9. I was thinking that too. She just seemed pretty down and angry through this whole thing - and shallow note, but the deep tan (real or spray?) and the way the light was hitting her face didn't help. I wished that Andy had probed more about what happened between Alli and Gary in that trip to take the boat back after filming ended. They showed some self-filmed bits where Alli said she was rooming with him and the first snippet she seemed happy, second snippet she seemed less so, and by the third snippet it was clear that she was beyond done with Gary.
  10. I get the sense that much of JL's response to Dani telling him he's the daddy has been directed by his mom. If it were up to him I'd guess that he would have just accepted what Dani said and went about his life. Not that he'd have jumped right in to be a supportive partner/dad, but he probably wouldn't push for a paternity test and might have just continued with some kind of casual connection with it all. That's him in all his immaturity. I'd bet good money that it's his mom pushing for the test and telling him that Dani was trying to trap him or is fooling him or whatever. Given his mom
  11. I think one of the small, but crucial, indicators of who Allison is, is in those moments where she sees a mess and has a clarity moment of "I don't have to clean that up" but then she reverts to what's "correct" and does so anyway. She did it with the flyers, she did it with the laundry in the bedroom, she did it with a piece of paper she threw on the ground, etc. Each time she was wanting to rebel against the idea of doing what was expected of her, what was "right" and then caved and did the right thing anyway. I think that is where she is with her marriage. She wants to rebel and end it, bu
  12. Yes I was thinking the same thing. All her "I'm so tough, no one would dare f*ck with me" is just so much bs. Joe G cheated on her multiple times and not only called her the c-word on tv, but did so to his mistress. I am not saying Teresa is to blame for the abuse she took or is in any way obligated to respond in any way other than what she decided worked for her to do. I am saying that for her to claim that she'd never put up with bad behavior because of how "strong" she is? And to do so in a way that is meant to shame other women for having done so? That sticks in my craw a lot.
  13. Not that they weren't making mistakes but Glen's getting on them about it felt like he was trying to compensate a bit for his own big blunder of hitting the dock. Regardless of if the "reverse thrusters" failed or it was his actual piloting error, it was extremely mortifying for him. So his suddenly pointing everyone else's mistakes out? Feels like the kind of defensive behavior you exhibit when you're feeling bad about yourself. Again - not to say that Natasha's 'lick the table' dessert isn't the worst thing ever, it is. I think she's just not very good at desserts. Seems like many meals
  14. Yes exactly. You captured what I was trying to say so much more succinctly. I really enjoy a quick wit and snark, but your description of digging a little deeper and making the cut a little longer is right and it's what makes the wit and snark veer into cruelty and viciousness. That's when they lose people. I get how it happens as they're trying to top themselves each year in order to keep the attention they crave, but it inevitably takes them in a downward direction.
  15. I don't mind if she still has beef with Rinna and Kyle, those make sense. What gets a little old for me is her put upon attitude about every event. When she was new last year and would project how much she didn't want to be at the events, especially when conflicts began (which they are probably contractually obligated to engage in), it made some sense. She's new to it. It's a lot to be going to dinner with a group of women and five minutes in have verbal screaming matches erupt. Makes sense that would make a person uneasy and looking for a way out. But she's not new to this anymore and h
  16. Has no storyline? That wasn't how I saw it. Her storyline was in part how her marriage was struggling - whether it was exaggerated for the show or not. To my mind that's a lot more of a "housewife" storyline than others. She's on a "real housewives" show and revealing things about her marriage. How is that not a storyline? Or at the least why is is less of one than Teresa's, which was starting a rumor about Jackie's husband and then fighting with Jackie about "my kids" for 80% of the season? I'm with you. I haven't liked her for most of the season, but thought that last night was reall
  17. Oh darn. You're right. Ah well, felt like a revelation for a moment. 🙃
  18. The more I think about it... the more I'm thinking Dylan's dad may be the baby daddy for Erin's baby - and perhaps her killer (though I'd been leaning towards it being a woman). Came to it as I was thinking about Mare's question for Jess (? Erin's best friend) about why Erin said Dylan was the dad. The friend she said it was Dylan because his parents were nice and she wanted DJ to have that. But maybe it's because Dylan's dad is the dad? Not sure he's also the kidnapper, who may be Dan or the deacon, but my new suspect for Erin's death.
  19. On third re-watch I am here to report that the ice cream was not left to melt in the breadbox. Helen stashed it there when Becca knocked at the door. But after letting Becca go down to the basement to wait for Siobhan, Helen went back to her ice cream. By the time Becca screams because she sees Siobhan making out, Helen is seated at the kitchen table eating her ice cream (with M&M’s and whipped cream on top from what I can tell). Still doesn’t excuse the half popped bag of popcorn. 😉
  20. Another screenshot of the kidnapper - which does look like cousin priest Dan (I'll admit), but when you see Dan in other scenes his sideburns are not very pronounced (less so than Zabels or Deacon Mark), so... Other factor that makes it maybe not Dan is the big, maintenance man, style of keychain this guy is wearing. So? You decide.
  21. I was hollering at the tv for her to text Siobhan. As to Becca claiming that Siobhan texted her...that felt like a spur of the moment lie she told Siobhan's grandmother so that she could stay at the house and wait for Siobhan. Jean Smart's character was clearly trying to edge her out the door and Becca wanted to stay and see Siobhan. A slower, building kind of episode, which I was enjoying just for all the character interactions. And then those last tense 15 minutes. Got me all riled up and conspiracy-brainstorming again. My theory now is that the kidnappings and death of Erin are two unr
  22. Oh I'm not thinking that Frank is the killer. I just thought that if he thought Kevin was DJ's father, it would explain why he had taken an interest in Erin and brought diapers and supplies for baby DJ. An explanation that doesn't include Frank himself as having been in a sexual relationship with Erin (which I thought was an early red-herring). This isn't a likely scenario to my mind, but for those positing that Kevin could be DJ's dad, then Frank's behavior becomes a bit more understandable. And also would explain why he wouldn't tell Mare about it. Kevin's suicide and how it clearly dea
  23. I've been thinking about the theory of Kevin being D.J.'s father. At first I was an automatic 'nah' on that. But I was talking to friends who watch and mentioned it. One of them said Kevin being the father would explain why Frank took an interest and was bringing Erin diapers and supplies. So I'm now sort of considering it - or perhaps just considering that Frank thinks Kevin was the father?
  24. Agreed. Sydney certainly has gone over the top with her reaction to her ONS with Gary, but the way he and Alli were behaving last night was bordering on cruel. Especially towards the end of the episode when Sydney, Natasha and Colin were sitting off by themselves. Suddenly here comes Gary and Alli to join the group and when they do they start a makeout session. Not just a side hug, but full on - two feet from Sydney. And then Alli kept pressing Sydney to say what she's feeling, etc. when clearly Sydney was too upset to feel she could do so. Alli knows at that point how Sydney is feeling.
  25. Another stellar episode and so many moments/beats to mull over. Will have to watch again of course as I'm sure I missed a few. Not sure if I caught it correctly (meaning not sure it was the same day), but I'm thinking part of why Zabel got so drunk that night was because of the previous case with the murder of the ten year old. When Mare was asking him about the case and he told her how he solved it and figured out where the girl was, he looked like he wanted to cry and it was difficult to even recount it to Mare. She asked him if they found the body there at the construction site (
