Although no where close to being friends, Bette and Joan find that they make a connection based on family, despite both having ulterior motives entering into making that connection. Part of the discussion includes Joan opening up about a sensitive issue from her childhood. The impetus for those discussions stem from three of their offspring being constant fixtures on set - Bette's daughter B.D. and Joan's twins, Cindy and Cathy - and their differing parenting styles. Bette, feeling that B.D. needs more of a focus in her life, follows Bob's lead, which may not sit well with Joan. Bette may regret her decision with regard to B.D., who she does not want to hurt, but who may prove a liability in the bigger picture of the movie. It is also not helped by Bette making a connection with Victor, who treats her more like a mother than his own mother when he gets into a bind.

Feud: Bette and Joan (2017)

Episode 3: Mommie Dearest

Episode three takes a look at Bette (Susan Sarandon) and Joan (Jessica Lange) and their relationship towards each other as well as with their daughters. Bette is having to deal with her young daughter getting a role in WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? while Joan is questioned by her co-star on the toughness she shows her children.

This third episode is another very entertaining one as we get a lot more behind-the-scenes struggles as both Davis and Crawford use the press to try and make themselves the star of the picture as well as try to build up early Oscar support. In one of the funniest moments, the director has to scream at both of the women because they're fighting over an Oscar even though the movie isn't completed.

If you've enjoyed the first two episodes then there's no question that the entertainment will continue here. There's a lot of good scenes dealing with the two women battling and it's certainly a lot of fun. Of course, the two lead actresses deserve a lot of credit for really digging into these roles and you can't help but believe both Sarandon and Lange in the roles.
