I am trying to like the show, but what I find seriously annoying is the weak writing. In most episodes, there are significant logical flaws in the drama.
In this episode, Big Jim tells everyone that Barbie shot Julia, so obviously he doesn't want her to tell the truth when she wakes up.
This of course means that Barbie can be saved by Julia telling everyone that he wasn't the shooter... so why-oh-why doesn't she do that when she wakes up? She is hiding with Angie, and they have a friggin police radio with them, with "Sheriff" Linda (and probably more people) listening!
Instead they decide to sneak through the countryside, radio in hand, in constant danger of being caught by Big Jim's henchmen. BS like this makes me truly angry while watching.
