Happy Sunday, Good Girls and Guys! It’s episode day which means it’s time for TV Source Magazine’s weekly spoiler preview! Let’s dive into episode 211 “Jeff”.

Obviously the most important thing is MARY PAT IS BACK! Yesssssss! No? Just me? Okay.

Anyway, Mary Pat is back and we get some insight to her marriage with first husband, Jeff. They seemed happy, their family was solid. However, life proves that it doesn’t matter how happy you are, life is short and tragedy can always strike, even in your front yard. Mary Pat has to make a decision for her family and how they are supposed to continue on. Either way, after the girls realize that the body they dumped isn’t Boomers like they thought it was, they track Mary Pat down and obviously, it’s hilarious. After some persuasion, she tells the whole tragic tale from beginning to end.

Mary Pat isn’t the only return we see this week. One of a few actually. But second most important is Miriam. Annie is doing her best to keep helping Boomer’s grandma keep her head above water grocery shopping, doctors appointments, perms, credit card disputes. But these aren’t the only things on Annie’s plate. She now knows that Noah is FBI and has been using her the entire time they’ve known each other. Beth and Ruby encourage her to use this to her advantage but it’s more than clear that Beth is the actress in the family. How long until she cracks? As it turns out, not long at all. She’s just so sick of all of the lies.

Turner isn’t making it easy on Stan and Ruby. First, he shows up at their church. Then he makes some phone calls to some lawyers. As always, our purest ship just can’t seem to catch a break. With the way Turner targets them it makes one wonder if he sees them as the weakest link. Either way, they are back to square one and Stan has put his foot down on a family decision.

Meanwhile, over at the Bowland’s, Beth and Dean sit their kids down to let them known about their impending split. They seem to take it well. At first. Dean also has a new job at a new dealership but it’s not quite the right fit for him and Beth is surprisingly supportive. It seems these two just had to agree to split to get back on friendlier terms. Also in Beth’s world, it’s coming down to the wire with the FBI closing in on her. While juggling her personal life and work life she also finds out exactly what Rio thinks of her. But is it what she wants to hear?

Quotes:

  • “But if I get kicked in the head, you get kicked to the curb.”
  • “Start talking.”
  • “Have you seen him?”
  • “You’re going to need a good lawyer.”
  • “And if homie gave two craps, you would have heard something.”
  • “You are a terrible grocery store manager.”
  • “I don’t want to work for anyone else.”
