Thanks to Netflix (and to the stupid covid virus), I am able to binge-watch this amazing show. I was hooked from the first episode. Trying to figure out the 'truth' while watching is half the fun. I've been right a few times, and wrong many more, which is ok by me. I like to be surprised.
But,,,,, I will admit to be growing tired with the character (not the actress) Beth. In this episode I rolled my eyes yet again at her constant hypocrisy., and it's getting boring. Telling her husband that 'he needs to change', was just another example, and the one that threw me over the edge with her character. She says he needs to change? Um,,,,,Pot, meet kettle.
She's allowed to blow up constantly, but nobody else is. She's allowed to accuse and berate her best friend (Ellie) for not knowing about her husbands involvement with Danny, but refuses to acknowledge that she didn't know about her own husbands affair. She acts like the only one whose allowed to grieve, and calls out people for not doing it 'her' way.
They say a persons true character is not shown when all is going good, but revealed during times of adversity. If this is true, then Beth is not a very good person.
Losing a child must be gut wrenching.
But that doesn't allow you to treat people so insensitively like she has.
I hope they redeem her character at some point. But I feel she will get away with being a jerk, because she 'suffered a lose'.
It would make more sense to accept help and support from your friends during a terrible time like this. Not push them away.
