Episode Summary

EDIT
The Sins of the Mother
AIRED:
Bubba comes in drunk from a post football party, well after his curfew (around 1:00 AM). Mama flies off the handle and promptly grounds him for 4 weeks and then quickly makes it six as her anger boils over. Iola shows up and the reason for Mama's seemingly unreasonable anger is revealed.

It seems that when Eunice was Bubba's age she begged Mama to get her on the Mother's Day show at the church, so she could showcase her singing case. The day of the event Eunice's long time crush Duke Reeves and his friends invites her on a picnic with the popular kids, and wants her to bring the food.

This makes her late for the show with Mama and when she does show up, she's drunk. Her and Mama end up getting in a huge fight in front of everyone and it ruins the day. Bubba then realizes why she was so hard on him and promises to never do it again. So she lets him go to his swim meet.moreless
