    • Very good again!

      While this episode was clearly not a s good as its predecessro, it was still really interesting. Carlene is just such a hilarious character! She is absoluetly brilliant at times, and I just think it showed today!

      Sheryl Crow was on this one, which was cool. Lots of interesting developments for multiple characters, and it is interesting to see what happens next.

      Keep it up, GCB!
