I liked the episode, but I feel like we are stuck in a bit of a loop. Near the start of the show, Christy found her long-lost dad. That story line actually lasted awhile and included two half brothers, but then Alvin died and the whole plot disappeared. Bonnie later met her mom, decided not to have a relationship after learning that her mom had chosen a man over retrieving her child, and rhen her mom died. After the death, Bonnie learned that she had a half brother, but he was a coke addict and didn't want to change. Then he and his plot disappeared. Now Bonnie finds the long-lost family blah blah blah.
I can enjoy each episode individually, but when I look at the series as a whole, I can't help but want the showrunners to find a creative snd plausible way to work with all of the previous material instead of just constantly adding characters that recycle plots. My list of dropped plots and charactets I'd like to see revisted continues to grow. I wonder if we will ever hear about Cookie again, other than a phone call that she died.
