    The girls take in a young, unmarried pregnant woman who has had communication difficulties with her father. Dorothy tries to get her father to understand, while Blanche's pen pal is released from jail and seeks a relationship.

    It's hard to identify with characters who only appear once with no decent explanation as to who they are, and who are never once mentioned again. Given Dorothy's similar situation as a teen, it is fitting that she becomes a mentor to the girl. The subplot involves Blanche avoiding a convict who has come looking for her, which I found much more entertaining. While the teen pregnancy issue is socially relevant, I don't think it works here because you don't know who this girl really is to the four women. Was she just there for the sake of a story for an episode? Was she there just to make a connection with Dorothy? It may have been more interesting if the audience was shown a little more about who this girl was.moreless
