Not as good as the last episode for sure. This episode did provide some background for all the characters though. Kris' mom comes to town and wants to take Kris back home. Anyway, this goes back and forth until Kris' mom finally leaves and attempts to clean up.
The final scenes weren't as heart-wrenching as this show probably intended them to be. Matt's reasoning just didn't make any sense in taking the ring. It would have been a little more interesting if he hocked the ring, which is what I predicted, but I was let down in that aspect.
Meanwhile Kris, Pablo, and Todd try to get Wildfire used to the starting gate, they eventually do. But this was unfortunately drawn out for too long and it became a hit-and-miss by the end. Dani's scenes were pretty boring and pointless. I really think she put a damper on this episode. Regardless, we did get some takeaway scenes but this isn't the show at it's best by any means.
