  • Fiona's love life is out of control

    9.0
    ...but it's very entertaining.



    Thought the only weakness was the reveal to end the episode. It could have been much clearer.
  • A Beautiful Mess

    6.7
    The wife constantly terrorizing Fiona was funny, it was good to see her in a different light and not always in control, as opposed to usually being the aggressive one. That was a fun storyline, but they really had no ending for it.

    And the actual ending was not what we needed. Lip getting kicked by Karen, not powerful enough, and definitely not important enough a storyline to close shows out and leave us satisfied.

    As a whole it was solid though.
