    OMG, this episode all though good was so disgusting on so many levels...Having sex with your brother wheter he is really your brtother or not is sick and wrong on so many levels...And to get him to kill your parents just so that you can continue to have sex iwth your brother? Best of luck to you in court babe, try planning insaninty...The guy wasn\'t even that hott...



    I felt bad for that black lady, oh god whats her name? OK, I can not remember, but thats ok, because I felt bad for her. She was just like OK, I want a family, I wish I was Annabelle...That was sad...



    I am not dissing this episode, overall it was good but it was just disgusting on so many levels...

  • Great episode!

    9.7
    This one definitely pushed the envelope. It was both shocking and engaging. Although I had a feeling the girl was lying during her testimony (it seemed way too obvious to have the abused child), I couldn't figure out why. And then it totally twisted around. Not only did she kill her parents, but it's because she and her "brother" were in love! My one reservation about the episode was that row of pictures of the two of them. As soon as I saw them, I knew they were a couple. The show made it a little too obvious what was coming up. It would be one thing if these pictures were in some photo album somewhere but they HAPPENED to be the ones on the board at the firm...a little too predictable. Except for those obvious pictures, this has definitely been the best episode yet!moreless
  • Incest in Surburia. How quaint.

    8.0
    This show operates in two worlds. it has the family life of Annabeth and the work life of Annabeth. On the family front, this week her baby has a cold. They go out of their way to show that she would really want to be with the baby, but can't. So her mother helps put. This portion of the story is grounded in realism.

    The other half of the story is from the twilight zone. A manipulative sister and the brother she seduces get caught in bed. The sister kills the parents, develops a cover story, and gets the brother to comply. If she was smart enough to figure all of that out, then why didn't she figure out that sooner or later people would come looking for her parent? Why didn't she figure out that having a wild party would invite police attention? It plays out ok, and there are some real bright spots. I just am not sure which world this show wants to live in more.moreless

    Wow Brother and sister, well not by blood sleeping together!!!. But dang that is some serious abnormal family life. I was almost in tears when the girl was telling the fib about all the sexual abuse that her father had done to the both of them. Reminds me just how a person can lie to your face and you be convimced it's the truth. I love Annabeth and Mariah...working together. This was a great episode and I await next Tuesday for a new great one..Way to go Close to Homemoreless
