Clever Twist and Insights of Naomi, Ellen, and Eunice!
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Mama Harper is in the kitchen making gooseberry jam with her loved ones, not her family, only kidding. Naomi and Ellen are already there but they are awaiting Eunice's arrival with the jars. For each of Naomi, Ellen and Eunice's versions, we get a better sense of how they see each other and themselves around Mother Harper. Mama is making gooseberry jam for a church function. Mama ends up in the hospital and Vint arrives to ask what happened to her. Naomi gives her version of the events in the kitchen. She sees herself as the loving daughter-in-law leaving out Ellen and Eunice. Then Eunice's event shows how she is the loving daughter who comes risking her life to deliver the jars. She sees Ellen with a crown like a Queen and she makes snide remarks to Eunice which we love to watch. Ellen's turn has her as the loving daughter and her mother as somewhat losing it.
