The end is finally here, and I haven't felt this elated for an ending since the closing credits for Pearl Harbor. It has been a long season with these haute-couture harridans and I'm ecstatic to have them out my life. So let's get on with it, shall we?

Social sectarianism is on full display as Jody manages to isolate Mary on the fringes of the group.
