Why Women Kill gives us its strongest episode of the season this week!
Why Women Kill gave us a great episode this week and took some time to dive into the thick of some of the developing storylines. Usually, I start with the 60s, but let’s change things up and start with the 2019 day storyline–you know, the one I can’t stand or care much about.
In this week’s episode, there is some friction between the thrupple after Eli and Jade sleep together while Taylor was out of town. While Jade wants to be honest with Taylor, Eli isn’t as eager to do the same. Plus, he’s secretly popping pills again and hasn’t told Jade that he’s an addict. This guy is a hot mess!
Upon Taylor’s return, she realizes very quickly that things between Eli and Jade have changed and calls them out for having sex. Naturally, she tries to pretend like it’s not bothering her but boy, is it ever. Especially considering that Eli’s agent said Jade was his “muse”. And I get Taylor’s frustration, she’s been by Eli’s side through a lot of crap and it would suck to hear the credit go to someone else. But to be fair, Jade did help Taylor out, well minus the whole giving him pills ordeal.

Moving on to the better storyline, the 1980s gets a bit crazy when all of Simone and Karl’s secrets are revealed. During dinner with Amy’s in-laws, the friction between Karl and Simone reaches an all-time high when Karl runs into one of his exes–and makes out with him.
Dinner blows up as both of them call each other out and start arguing. Everyone finds out that Karl is gay and that Simone is sleeping with Tommy. Suffice to say, Amy’s future in-laws aren’t exactly pleased to learn about the family their son is about to get married into.
Why Women Kill does the best job in this week’s episode with the 1960s storyline, which has been their best one of the three consistently. As time passes, Rob continues to feel more and more guilty about his affair, and it’s become obvious that he’s about to put an end to it.
We finally learn a little bit about Rob and Beth Ann’s daughter who is presumed to have passed away for reasons that have no been disclosed as of yet. But Beth Ann does mention later in the episode that she is to blame. It’s very saddening to learn that this happened to them, and it’s something they haven’t quite recovered from.
And while they haven’t worked through their past, their present seems to be on the up and up so they decide to throw a housewarming party for the neighborhood. Beth Ann makes the rounds to invites her neighbors over for the party but along the way she meets someone we haven’t seen before yet–Mary and her husband.

Mary seems like a sweetheart but her husband, not so much. There’s something off about him and that becomes clear later at the party when Beth Ann’s suspicions are proven to be true. Mary’s husband hits her, and she has the bruises to prove it. Beth Ann is deadset to speak out about it, while Rob chooses to stay out of it completely, something that pisses off Beth Ann beyond words.
It culminates in them getting into a huge fight and it’s at that time that Rob calls Beth Ann a bad mother. Not cool, dude, not cool. What happened to their daughter? How was it Beth Ann’s fault? Tune in to find out–soon, I hope.
