She also asked Abigail about college knowing it would push Maddie's buttons. She is STONE COLD, that woman.
This might be too lurid for even this show, but I wonder if the Bachmans were playing with Ed like a weird sex thing (like cuckolding). Or I could just be a pervert and I'm sorry.
I like the Ed/Maddy story because usually it's a story about a woman being cheated on after a man has a "moment of weakness" and how the couple rebounds (or doesn't), so it's an interesting perspective for me. Kind of how the Bonnie story inverses the conventional gender roles with her mom as the stronger personality, if not abusive, and dad as the passive one.
It might be subtle but I am a twin boy, and I think the writing of and acting by the twins has been REALLY good. One of the twins (Max?) is a lot more aggressive and is usually the instigator. I like that they're not written as completely interchangeable.
I *kind* of want a show in 20 years of Amabella as an adult, because what a weird thing to go from rags-to-riches as a precocious second grader.
