As they struggle to come to terms with Maura, Josh looks for answers from a rabbi named Raquel (Kathryn Hahn), and Ali looks for answers in a Gender Studies class with Syd. Sarah is left to answer questions from her own kids, who meet Maura for the first time.

Kathryn Hahn is so good in this, especially if you've only seen her in comedic roles. (I will say that I was let down by what I felt was the trite plot of the movie she did with Soloway, Afternoon Delight. I don't recommend it on general points but if you're really into Hahn's acting or Soloway's writing/direction it's fine, just not as emotionally groundbreaking as the series.)

I will say that especially around now I felt there was a sort of structural error emerging in that Sarah's (and Tammy's) are not left with enough time to be seen as wholly developed characters. It's a fairly minor failing but I think it damages the audience's relationship with Sarah especially.

I guess Len has decided to compete with Josh for being the worst.
