An episode like this one seems to serve only as a reminder of the ways in which it doesn't work.

This was probably the ugliest scene in Feud yet.

Between the horrors of the Baby Jane shoot, Joan's Oscar-night stunt, and her and Bette's natural antipathy, you would think that the last thing either of them would ever do would be team up again. But desperate times call for desperate measures.

In what will probably be one of the most enduring images from this season of Feud, Joan - glittering with diamonds in a blood-red gown and elbow-length gloves - bursts into the theater from the rear, feebly brandishing an axe.

It's all a little too déjà vu to make for a compelling episode ... The biggest issue with "Hagsploitation," though, is pulling focus from the premise of the show.

Nothing ... can quite compete with Lange - the intricate cigarette-smoking behavior, the shaky inhales, the surges of anger, the desolate collapses. There's humor, too.

The sheer irony comes from what happens behind the scenes, where mockery and disrespect are how these women thrive. It is never not cutthroat.

"Hagsploitation" ignores the glitziness of last week's Oscar episode in order to focus on the characters, their pain, and their crippling legacies. It might not be as explosive or as juicy, but it's a step in the right direction.

And so here we are are with Joan - alone again, naturally.
