To prove her mother wrong, Beth plans a special dinner for what is supposed to be Carol’s last night with the Pearsons. Beth wants to send her mother home in shock, but things don’t go as planned.

Beth clearly takes this personally and makes her feel like she can’t win. It only gets worse when Annie and Tess take out their phones on the table, something Carol obviously disapproves of, which Beth interprets as a judgment on their parenting abilities.

Beth’s feelings of resentment and inferiority are only exacerbated when Tess reveals that she is dating her non-binary friend Alex, surprising Beth, who didn’t know her oldest daughter was in a relationship, and then hurts her when she realizes. that Carol already knew. about the romance in the making.

Carol responds by announcing that she will pack her bags and leave. Beth regrets her outburst and follows her mother upstairs to apologize for raising her voice and disrespecting her mother. Carol responds by asking if what Beth said was how she really felt. When Beth admits that she feels judged by her mother, Carol explains the real reason she has stayed at the Pearson house.

Although Beth feels that Carol is judging the strong chaos in her house, in reality, Carol has specifically stayed because of the noise. She regrets feeling alone in her home, where life has become so quiet that she can tell the time of day from the traffic noises outside. He has stayed with Beth because of the noise of their home and the sense of family and connection that comes with it. It is implied that what Beth has been interpreting as criticism during Carol’s visit was actually Carol’s way of trying to be helpful, creating an excuse for her extended stay. Ultimately, Beth invites her mother to stay with her family indefinitely.

Beth and Carol’s inability to communicate openly with each other has increased tension between them on more than one occasion. Now that the air has cleared and Carol is staying with Beth’s family for a while, maybe the mother and daughter will learn to get along better.
