Good, crazy episode. I thought for sure Dina would reveal she was in on trashing the store to fool Glen into making her co-manager

I usually like Sandra, but coworkers fundraising for their pets' treatments is a huge pet peeve of mine (no pun intended). Thankfully in the past my coworkers have only done it via GoFundMe, so I just ignored their emails and didn't have to say no to their faces. Otherwise I would have been like Jonah at the end and told them to get the hell away from me with that jar.

I felt bad for Garrett. Couldn't Zephra at least have sent a mass email to all of Cloud9's customer service reps with a link to the instructions? I hope Garrett doesn't get in trouble for all the incorrectly returned "grapes."

On a shallow note, Dina/Lauren Ash looks great in a blazer. I hope she keeps wearing it regardless of how Glenn feels about it.

I didn't know that was a thing. I understand why they were pissed though, at their income level thats a lot of money and especially the way it played out with Sandra using the money for something other than the vet. Jonah's reaction the day after was very relatable.

The last scene with Dinah and Glenn walking into the warehouse like a couple in a fashion commercial had me in stitches. Dinah looked hot.

The sight gag of the man returning the dialysis machine was funny along with his later assessment that Garrett “might be new” but that was about it.

I think I kinda vaguely remember Carol getting hurt but don’t remember the circumstances. It was right after she came back after trying to murder Sandra? Maybe that’s the show’s end game. Carol gets a big settlement (boo!), and corporate closes the store.

Nothing funny about Glenn and Dina’s turf war.

Sandra using the money for the necklace was not cool, and I’d be Sayid-level resentful, too.

Funny episode. I loved Jonahs reaction to Cheyenne at the end and also his, “I just stocked those blenders...”

The Carol lawsuit at the end came out of nowhere, even if, as Dinah said, a lawsuit over electrocution makes sense. Is this setting up how the show will end? The store closing due to a lawsuit?

The idea of a diamond made from your dead cat made me laugh, as did Jonah/Mateo's sleuthing to figure out if Sandra still had the donations. Solid, zany A-plot. I thought Garrett's plot was boring and unfunny as a cutaway scene, let alone an entire C-plot.

I agree, there was some definite disjointed writing at the end there. Maybe they wrote the co-manager thing setting up for next season and then added the lawsuit after cancellation was announced? It's a shame because I would've loved to watch Lauren Ash play a bigger role.

I don't think we've ever seen Dina with her hair down before, have we? 

Overall I found this episode kind of weak, but I did get a big laugh out of Dina thinking the cutouts of Babadook were Diane Keaton.

I work in the tech industry, and it's definitely a thing among millennial coworkers. The people asking for money usually make six figures, so I find those requests extremely tacky.

She had her hair down at Amy's daughter's quinceanera.

Dina looks lovely with her hair down, and I am glad that she and Glenn are going to manage together, they both have really different strengths and weaknesses that can balance each other out. 

Not as good as last week, the whole Sandra plot was really lame on several levels (I hate when pets, even fictional ones, die) but I did laugh a few times. Justine has been getting a lot of the best lines lately. "Immigrants, we get the job done!" "WE do?" "My family is like, Swedish or something." 

Carol should be in jail several times over anyway.

I actually found Garrett trying to process the return of the dialysis machine really amusing.  That impatient and obnoxious customer feeding string cheese through the top of his mask was funny.  I enjoyed the grape based solution.

I think my top moment was Dinah's interrogation scene sliding the plastic panel back and forth in front of the 'suspects.'  Quite the three piece suit for Dinah at the end.

This is the first time I realized they are ADR'ing the masked dialogue.  The actor playing Bo was a little out of sync.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions... I felt something was a bit off with one of the conversations in the first episode, felt dubbed over.  I don't think they're doing it to all of it the masked conversations.  Maybe just where the voices don't come out as clearly as they'd like.

Same, and yet as I found out, this is an actual thing. Apparently you can even have human ashes turned into a diamond too.

Yep. My sister's coworker had one made with his mom's ashes.

I can't imagine a used dialysis machine is re-saleable.

I was only half paying attention to this episode, but that was my immediate thought. Like unless it's specifically from a medical equipment rental place, once you've used it, it's yours. If I missed that piece of it, then my bad.

Now this week was more like it. A true return to form.

Very funny and all the plots seemed to be clicking. I LOVE the supporting characters Justine,Sayid and Carol. Why does this series have to end?! I want to see more of them.  Seeing Beau in action again tonight only underscores that he and Cheyenne cannot carry a series. They need to spin off some of the others!

Speaking of Cheyenne she looked stunning in the final moments of the episode with her hair down.

So whatever happened to  Mateo's immigration problems...they just dry up and blow away?

Enjoyed Amy being name dropped and I appreciated seeing Myrtle's picture on the wall in the background.

My DVR cut out at the very end so I did not hear why Carol is suing the store. I wonder if its the set up for the store closing and the series ending.

It's kind of in limbo.  When corporate called the immigration service, it was to undermine unionization at the store, and that was illegal.  Mateo's case is on appeal, and meanwhile he out wearing an ankle monitor.
