Worst episode ever. I think I laughed once throughout the entire thing.
The writers deliberately wrote Jade ten times meaner than usual just to fit the plot of this one episode, before they will undoubtedly go back to writing her how they usually do for the following episodes. If that's not lazy writing then I don't know what is.
The only good thing about this episode was Jade's performance at the end. It was one of the best performances in the show's history: the camera angles, the directing, EVERYTHING was perfect about it.
Shame it got tacked onto the end of one of the worst episodes in the show's history.
