The scene where Helen tells Noah that he's an excellent father to their children is a fascinating one because it comes from Helen's perspective, not Noah's.

Welp, guess there's another wedding in the future! Hopefully not the same one that kills Scotty Lockhart. Oh who am I kidding, I don't really care.

Aack. This entire hour just left me feeling sorry for everyone involved. Well, everyone except Margaret.

The show finally is making some progress instead of feeling meandering and ponderous.

Through tears, Maura Tierney continues her spectacular performance this season with this speech about Helen's love for Noah, even though all Margaret ever did was make her feel like dirt for choosing him.
