Whoa. I'm totally overwhelmed by Glorietta. First of all the name. Then her incarcerated fiancee is the next "Justin Beaver" and she likes anything to do with (not) going on dates....Green Eggs and Ham style. Then the immovable eyebrows,  no matter what schizophrenic facial  expressions are made. Plus her Mama tweaks too! 

I like to date upon a train

I like to go to lover's lane

I like to walk out in the rain

Perhaps we will be wed in Spain! 

I like to date upon a boat

Our boat can float across a moat

Its chilly, so I'll wear a coat

We asked the heavens "could there be anyone dumber than Vince?" and the heavens gave us Glorietta. Holy moly.

That was the saddest excuse for a party i’ve seen! What food? Three people had water bottles, and the little girl had a pudding cup. That’s it! Then again, I got really distracted by looking at all of the “collectibles” in that aunt’s house that maybe I missed the food in the foreground. I couldn’t get past that odd railing “protecting” a ring bearer pillow as if it were keeping throngs of tourists away from the Mona Lisa. Then there was a small curio cabinet brimming with dolls.

That "party". Oy. I was thinking "oh, bottled water for all. they really pulled out all the stops  for the big welcome home!" Followed by the Airing of Grievances. Maybe it was Festivus. 

And yeah, looks like a Michael's exploded in mom's  house. Yikes.

I think Mom is either the child of an alcoholic or was married to one. She is obsessed over Lizzy having a drink. I didn’t see anything to indicate Lizzy is a falling down drunk, so this has to be coming from somewhere else. 

Unpopular opinion, but I don't think Daniel's mom is off base for being concerned about Lizzie drinking (though her comportment is off, she shouldn't have been talking shit about Lizzie while Lizzie was in the house). Daniel is an addict, as is Lizzie. Some drug addicts can handle using substances that are not their drug of choice, some cannot. Mom doesn't know which one Lizzie is, so for all she knows, alcohol leads to meth - which is true for some addicts.

Now, I think Daniel is perfectly capable of fucking up his own life on his own (see: face tats) and doesn't need Lizzie for that, but I don't think his mother is wrong for being concerned that her addict son was exposed to alcohol an hour after getting out of jail.

I was confused about Shane's story. It sounded like his friend showed Shane nudes on his phone and Shane beat the guy so badly he lost his eye. I was texting a friend about it and he said he assumed the nudes were child porn (which, if the guy was 17 like Shane was at the time, could happen pretty easily if he had a same-age girlfriend sending him nudes), but in that case, why didn't the friend face any legal consequences?

GLORIETTA. When her list of reasons she should marry Alex included "he has pretty eyes and a nice body and sings to [her] really nice [no he doesn't, Justin "Beaver" he is not]," I was done. Glorietta is a MESS.

IIRC, Lizzie told us in a voiceover that Daniel's arrest followed a binge drinking session he and Lizzie had when they first met. So Daniel's 3 years in prison was a fairly direct consequence of (both of their) drinking, if Lizzie is to be believed. If true, Daniel's mom's concern is justified.

It also sounded like the drugs belonged to Lizzie’s friends/roommates not Daniel and he took the fall.  So if I were Daniel’s mom and knew Lizzie let that happen I wouldn’t want her around him either.

I don't believe that those drugs belonged solely to "Lizzie's friend."

I understand the concern from Daniels mother because clearly, as a recovering addict fresh out of jail....."just drinking" is a terrible idea.  

But, Daniels sobriety is not Lizzie's responsibility.  It's not Teri's responsibility.  It's Daniels responsibility.

Lizzy's breathless enthusiasm to go and get drunk with Daniel does not augur well. I think she's an addict and he is too.  

I don't know what to think because she has pulled her life together beautifully.  Working part time, going to school full time is a path most parents would be proud of. 

This is why it makes no sense to me that Lizzie's own mother isn't causing some sort of ruckus.  I mean, yes, let your kids make their own decisions but Lizzie's mother seemed to be fully behind her being with a meth addict fresh out of jail that she knew for a week ahead of time.  

Even the most hakuna matata of parents would have something to say????

And I'm also confused as to why Lizzie is so nonchalant.  I mean....follow me here.   Lizzie clearly had a drug problem.  It must have taken a LOT of hard work and dedication to get from "drug problem" to working part time and doing school full time.  She must have struggled with her cravings and worked hard to stay sober, clean and focused.  

All of that speaks to putting in the hard work of sobriety and respecting it's importance.  So why is she okay getting with a guy who is an addict she only knew a week before he went in? 

I just don't understand it, her story reads like a successfully recovering addict but her behavior is so different.  

Either way, hopefully he doesn't drag her down with him.  I doubt she will be able to wriggle away next time.

I know! I would be tripping if I were her mother. "You've done so much work to turn your life around and THIS is who you take up with?" She met him when she was 19 and he got locked up a week later. OK, bye dude! You meet people all the time when you're 19. She's a college student, she could meet another dude today! Get on the apps!

I frankly don't have a lot of faith in Daniel's ability to stay clean; I don't think he's developed the skills he needs to cope with disappointment and life stuff in a healthy way.

With Vince admitting he never had a girlfriend I wonder if he is a virgin.  He has no game.  Maybe he paid for a rub and tug.

He said sex is beautiful thing or something, like he knows. I don't think it's all that uncommon nowadays for a 30 year old to never have had a relationship. The millennials are all about NSA, DTF, FWB, etc.

Best conversation of the episode:

Angela (while changing outfits so she can go search for Tony): “Who runs away from a half-way house? Dumbass.”

Angela’s friend: “And who chases him? Hahahahaha.”

It made me laugh a little when she changed from the short, green t-shirt dress into the short  red t-shirt dress. 😅Why, I wonder? They were almost identical and the first one looked clean.`

Lizzie never once went to visit him in prison. And his mother is mad about it. Lots of young ppl attend college and work part time. I did. So did everyone I knew. Some ppl even worked full time. Lizzie wasn't holed up in the campus library every one of those 956 nights, pretty sure. Lizzie still parties. Just like we all did in college. And doesn't she have a "secret" to confess to him?

OMG, that was HILARIOUS!  I thought she was gonna change into some sweats or a ninja outfit or at least something more comfortable to walk the streets looking for a runaway felon....but it was the exact same dress in red!

I've never been an addict, and I'm fairly square.  But I imagine that if I went from "addict who almost got arrested" to school full time and work part time it would take a lot of work and committment to stay on the straight and narrow.  

I did school full time and work part time, but I might have been a little more intense and weird about it since I had kinda flamed out of college before o really dedicated myself.  

No way would I have been driving all over creation to visit a felon four hours away.  The felon part is pertinent because it's not a long visit for the amount of time you spend driving.

And while I had a great job that allowed me to take days off as I pleased as long as my work got done I was luscky.  A lot of college students have part time jobs where they struggle for hours and already ask an employer to schedule around their school.  You run into the wrong manager and you end up with fewer hours.  

I guess if the college student was driving for Uber, but I went to.college with the dinosaurs....I think we may have been using flip phones. 

BUT, you're right I guess she could have been working, partying and doing school full time.

If I understand it correctly, Shane beat up a gay guy, which made me even angrier when Lacey said he did the right thing.I had the closed captioning on and it seemed to me that he said the guy was trying to show him naked pictures of himself.

Daniel's coping skills seem to be getting terrible tattoos.  What can he put under the other eye?  Another umbrella because this one is full?

I think he said, "kids." Didn't get the impression anyone was necessarily gay.

I couldn't believe when Lacy told him he had done the right thing, he agreed and said, "yeah, it made me the man I am today."

A convicted felon?? Yes, it did.

I can def understand being outraged by seeing child porn, tho.

I watched it again with closed captioning.  He said, "pics of *Bleep*(they even blurred his mouth)  They were naked."  It really isn't clear WHAT he said.  

My thought against it being young kids is what kind of fantastically idiotic buffoon, even a pedo, just wanders over to a friend and says, "Hey, check this out!" 

Although, it might have been someone older, but still under age, like Shane's sister (not a spoiler, I have no idea if he has one or not) or something.

Agree if it was kids! I had thought it was a guy trying to hit on him with dick pics and Shane strikes me as someone who wouldn't be secure enough in his masculinity to just say, " Not me, bro, sorry. "

I'm not going to speculate on something I honestly don't know.  Shane could have said they were naked monkey pictures.  The point is, whatever it was, the right response was not to punch out someone's eye.  We don't need to make his actions even worse by making him homophobic or whatever.

So I always thought “hot springs” referred to an outdoor spring/ natural water thing not a heated pool. But at least she didn’t get her hair wet

He was complaining that nothing even happened to the guy so that suggests that he thinks what the guy did is worse than ruining an eye.

This Glorietta is a trip! Why’d they hold out on us? “He’s my everything hashtag everything! ... I love to go on dates, whether it’s on a boat or a train.” A wedding vision scrapbook! 

Mom, Tammy, is even better! In response to “and he sings really nice”: “What is he going to sing to you, ‘Jailhouse Rock’?” And to “and he comes from a nice family”: “Ted Bundy came from a nice family!”

This “hot spring” is a dirty heated pool in a strip mall?

Shane punched somebody’s eyeball out of his head and these two dolts think this was a good thing?!?!

Vince is adopting a fleet of adult prisoners to claim as dependents on his “secret government” payout?!?!? What?!?!? Um, looks like next season will be Vince with the photo on the right with FRAUD underneath. 

Here comes Ed Beagly Jr to play bounty hunter with Angela.

What’s more awkward—sex on the laundry room floor or being interviewed afterward about it in underwear and blankets?

Lacy is saying to us that she’s known John for 15 YEARS but she’s telling Shane they met a year ago?!?!

This is gold. That Glorietta is a TLC masterpiece! Her odd behavior when she was folding the shirts and talking on the phone. At first she was annoying but now I await her on camera time.

Shane? I don’t know... I believe him although I can see some prompting to make the story more dramatic. But Lacey is the shades one as far as I can see. Very odd.

Yes, it is legal to adopt adults. Don’t know about this story though. Who admits intent to defraud the guvmint on camera? And it definitely seems a scheme beyond Vince’s ability to scheme.

These TLC programs are the new soaps with a twist. No one tried to make you think Soaps were real life.

I'm not sure if, in every state, someone holding kiddie porn would be arrested.  You can for sure get busted for possession of kiddie porn but I'm not sure if it's considered as serious, criminally, as distribution.

I think Shane's story is that he beat  a guy up for showing him kiddie porn.  Which is why Lacey said he was right to beat the guy. 

I think that is Shane's story, but I think he is full of shit.  There are very few socially acceptable reasons to beat someone so bad that their eye is removed.  Very few reasons that you can use when questioned about a malicious wounding charge during a job interview that people will accept.  

Saying that the guy caught a beating because he was a child molester who was showing you kiddie porn is one of the few reasons normal society will accept for beating someone out of an eye.  

So, for Shane, the best thing for him to say is that he beat the guy up for showing him kiddie porn.  

I also think that IF Shane's story is true the guy probably got rid of any and all pics that could be construed as child porn right after his beating.  His computer was probably thrown off a cliff right along with his cell phone.

Not sure how long eye removal takes, but it should take a decent amount of time to get a warrant.  Likely enough time to allow a person to throw a computer off a cliff post eye removal.
