WHY doesn't Ruth have better sense than to jump into a marriage with a man she barely knows and who has been married SIX TIMES?! Why can't she just date him for a year or so and then take stock? It never fails to astound me that long-married people can be so completely clueless about dating.

Keith's overbearing ways would be hard to take. I couldn't be with anyone that dominant, stellar as Keith is in a number of ways.

Nate berating Allison Desmond for crying after he rejected her is one of his worst moments in the entire series. (Admittedly there are many to choose from.) Part of what's wrong with Nate is due to him being able to attract women too easily, which in turn means he doesn't value what they're giving him. The guy's been largely coasting on his looks. That said, I wouldn't say he fucked up his marriage to Lisa. He really was doing the best he could to make it work, they *might* ultimately have made it work (i.e., they were in a good place for several weeks before Lisa vanished), and Lisa's disappearance was in no way his fault.

Brenda, for God's sake, stay away from Nate. You're claiming you're doing it out of concern, but he's a grown man and can look after himself. What you're really trying to do is get back into his life, and that's the last thing he needs right now.

It was good of Brenda to be there for Claire, though. Heaven knows no one else in her family was. To be fair, Claire didn't give them the chance to be. But I understand why she didn't tell them: she didn't want to deal with their judgment/emotional reaction to her situation, but simply to do what needed to be done, and get it over with. Brenda helped her without judgment, which was exactly what Claire needed.

It's so, so odd that neither Brenda nor Claire have any friends. That's really unusual, because they are both quite personable. Has Claire not even kept up with Parker?

Now Rico gets to actually live with the asshole sister-in-law he can't stand. Hoo boy.

It doesn’t surprise me. They’re used to companionship and so they’re trying to get that back, even when it’s not the best decision.

What surprises me more is that a white mother has been missing for quite a long while, weeks now I think, and she’s not been plastered all over the news yet.
