Part 2 of the worst episode of the series
1 March 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Gloria tries to get Edith to go to the police station and identify the attacker.

Here we see the aftermath of the horrifying attack on Edith. Archie and Mike go to the house and check to see if the man is still there. It is very awkward as they act like Laurel and Hardy after we have seen the horrible moments before. It is very depressing to see the cheerful character of Edith this way. And to think this was supposed to be a comedy show.
