It all starts to go wrong when Stuart Zedeck learns that someone impersonated him and withdrew money from the charity's account. He sends his henchman to find out what is going on which leads to a confrontation with Tom. Marilyn Tobin meanwhile goes to Patty and agrees to confess to knowing about the Ponzi scheme and to murder if only they will leave her son Joe alone. Patty makes her views on that point quite clear. Patty is surprised when she runs into her son Michael's pregnant girlfriend. She let's Patty know in no uncertain terms that she has no intention of leaving town and that she and Michael are very much enjoying the money Patty gave her. Patty gets her revenge. Ellen's old boyfriend tells her who was responsible for the death of her fiancé David. Written by garykmcd

Nobody Tells Me What to Do
14 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm not including any spoilers here. I will only say that just about everything comes to a head in this final episode of the third season. Patti is the consummate paragon of damaged goods. She is, however, one of those people who never compromises when she feels she is right. That said, she is about as cruel as one can get. When her son's love interest reneges on her agreement, we know this is not going to end well. The Tobins continue their efforts to maintain a themselves. The problem is that Patty has found ways to increase their in-fighting. Joe is a dangerous man, betraying everyone because he felt he was the injured party. So many secrets; so much deception. Frobisher also makes some serious mistakes. It will be interesting to see the next set of episodes. Patty made a horrible decision when she was young. Ellen is moving toward her future with some heavy questions. And, of course, we already knew Tom was dead.
