All the women converge on Houston for the National Women’s Conference. Alice, who prodded Phyllis to stop the ERA in episode 1, is fueled by optimism as she drives herself and Pamela across the country. But nothing goes according to plan and, after her trip, Alice reconsiders her original goals.
Pamela, whose controlling husband has no idea that she’s gone to Texas, is well aware that she’s trying to get away from an oppressive situation. Alice doesn’t realize she’s in a similar situation until after they arrive. Her abusive partner is Phyllis, who has been manipulating Alice for years, convincing her that her self-worth is completely tied to doing whatever Phyllis thinks is best.
