"Do you seriously think that Bianca's that shallow?"
Simply dreadful.Impossible to engage with any of the characters, the most likable ones, aside from Liam and Angelo(the only regular males in the episode coincidentally), are Irene and Nicole and that's because they're peripheral to the action.The Liam/Bianca/Vittorio storyline had worn out its welcome in the episode where it was introduced and we're now several months beyond that.Liam really does just need to cut her losses and run, rather than continuing to pursue a woman who's marrying a man she doesn't love out of...what?Greed?Cowardice?Joanna and Vittorio are a couple of shallow, selfish bad guys with nothing of interest about them.And April, who had so much potential, finally just becomes an annoying irritation, with her obsession with Bianca's love life bordering on the unhealthy and her having a go at Nicole, much like her similar scene with Liam the previous week, being completely out of line.
Then we have Charlie being the world's worst parent.Not because she grounded Ruby but because she here lets the selfish brat walk all over her.She rightly says she shouldn't apologise to Ruby because Ruby's in the wrong, then she does just that to stop Ruby walking out on her. Despite her perfunctory apology, Ruby doesn't seem to learn anything from the experience and all Charlie seems to learn is that disciplining her daughter causes trouble so she shouldn't bother.Far from being a heartfelt moment, their hug is pretty sickening and basically sums up one of these shows problems:Instead of characters resolving their issues, they sidestep them and go for a shallow, meaningless candid moment.
