Storyline

A chance encounter with an old acquaintance at a supermarket and Levi's dropping off photo albums for Amy bring memories to Helen. As she walks through the house or looks out a window, she sees her husband and young children, her husband's tragedy, and Amy's falling in love with Levi. It's part back story of this small family, and part a presentation of the weight of Helen's experiences and emotions. The camera suggests that our past is in our face.

The self-realization of the series
5 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Perhaps the show's most dramatically heavy episode, Consider Helen lets us take a look into the past of the family, and the guilt and anguish of Amy's mother. We finally get a look into her thoughts and her past. The episode is definitely very serious in tone and not comedic in any aspect, but this is a good thing. It balances out, and it reminds us of the tragedies that have been brought down on this family. Diane Ladd is excellent here, and for a while now we wonder what the relationship between mother and daughter was, and why it's so sour. This episode lets us deeper into Helen's mind and for the first time we see things through her perspective

Overall, incredible episode, and very heartfelt. Just the dose the show needed.
