Storyline

Ethan's frustration over having the quadruplets taken over by Masters is soothed by telling his wife she's finally pregnant, but he can't handle Virginia's hard-to-get arrogance. Virginia's penniless ex George Johnson, father of rascal Henry, invites himself to her place and, beyond hope, bed when expelled by his landlord, then joins the study as volunteer under an alias, which she spills to Masters. Wiliam is far from amused that his wife invited his widowed mother Estabrooks Masters and invites his colleagues to a party in her honor, and worse: she wants to move into St.Louis.

'Thank You for Coming' (let's hear it for double entendres!) is the most riveting episode since the pilot. As presentation goes, there's plenty of subtle camera tricks and misdirection to add more layers to this, and almost every character is suddenly much more complicated. Even Ethan manages some sympathy, who's been a major jerk so far. Virginia's ex-husband jeopardizes both her personal and professional lives, and Lizzy Caplan plays it beautifully (there's great acting from everyone here). But Masters' story is the most fascinating, revealing an abusive father and betraying his anxieties over becoming a parent himself.

Fantastic stuff, and it's this kind of writing that makes this show really ignite.

8/10
