I liked the return of Verla Grubbs on the show. Carol Burnett is a legend and she definitely brought cred to the program, but her scenes with Opal were really not that great. They were interesting, at times a little funny, but given those involved it could have been stronger.
And why not explain or show footage of this Zach and Ryan scuffle. I get that they are trying to keep the budget down, but you have to show things like this. It is like JR's accident that they did not show all over again.
