Mother Daughter time.
24 June 2018 | by omprakashmaniyarSee all my reviews

Selina's mother is sick gets hit with stroke. The recount in Nevada takes interesting turn.

Karen continues her non-sense with senseless arguments in the court - which surprisingly gets accepted.

Andrew and his girlfriend Monica visit the hospital. Mike and Wendy continue their serach for surrogate mother.

The public sympathy drives the "Death Bump" in favorability for Selina. The best scene is in the Chapel where Selina and Gary pray together!

Mike tries to get in on Andrew's Brazil investment.

Surrogate Mother to Ben and Wendy: Which Church do you go to? Ben and Wendy: " Our Lady of the Holy Womb of Jesus." Selina to Mike: "You gonna cancel this recount like Anne Frank's bar mitzvah."
