I know some may feel it's a cop-out to reveal Charles was cheating long before Nico so she doesn't come off as bad. But it's actually a nice dramatic touch that after wallowing in guilt over her affair, she finds out Charles was so much worse, knocking up a student and paying for her life while she was sneaking around. That he died is another shock as I had been expecting a confrontation about all this but now he's gone so Nico never gets that closure. It's a fine dramatic cap-off to the overall story and the promise of more for Nico.
Mary Tyler Moore was a smart choice as Wendy's mom, feisty and controlling but the scene of them laying out the problems was nicely done. Victory's quest for her own place and dealing with Joe was difficult and a bit too flightly but Rosie Perez livened it up as the feisty marketer. And I liked the part at the beginning of Wendy busting her daughter on the fake ID.
What really made the episode was the scenes of the girls together. Raver was terrific in the pre-funeral rant, drunk and trying to hold together while ranting on Charles' secret misdeeds and Victory and Wendy trying to keep up. But better was the part where they asked if any of her family was at the funeral and she smiled to let them know they were. That last bit of Nico in the cab was a bit much but it's still a good start to a season that may be even better than the first.
