A lot of fun, but many story elements stank of screenwriter convenience more than character development.

Big Daddy's androgynous toy trying to kill Desna? They'd always been a squeamish person. And now they're an assassin with the woman who literally gifted them a business as the target?

And why on Earth would anyone ask Kevin to talk to anyone about their feelings? Besides the screenwriter just looking for something for him to do that is.

Yyyeah, this one was kind of a field of stupid, but they have some glidepath with me, so I'll stick with it.

The stupidest thing was them walking out of that meeting with the Lovestones thinking they had remotely come out on top. I mean, it's one thing to be in over your head, but I hope that one of them suddenly realizes "Wait, we basically bent over and said 'Please kick all of our asses!' in there, didn't we?"

'Claws' got me similar to 'Good Girls' - the narrative is enough for me to not question believability.

Could have easily balked at Polly (Carrie Preston) "I'm not (totally) white" - and this discussion is fraught, but \_(ツ)_/¯
