TLC.com: Miriam left to go back to Ohio in this episode. Were you surprised she made that decision? And that she didn't say goodbye?

Mary: Definitely not. I am not surprised. I clapped for her when I saw she wasn't there. I instantly thought: yeah, she went back to be with her son. That was a good choice. Being so homesick for your own children and then going to say bye would distract you -- she probably thought they would talk her into staying.

TLC.com: Bates' girlfriend Rena told him that she didn't want to be together anymore, and he was really upset. What words of comfort would you offer him?

Mary: There's a lot of ways to comfort people without alcohol. I'd say, go to a park, be angry, do something to distract your mind. The makeover was a good distraction. [Editor's note: That's right! The group got makeovers this week. Check out their transformations in this photo gallery.]

TLC.com: Even though Matt is trying to repair his relationship with his wife, he's still flirting with other women. Why do you think he's being so self-destructive? (Watch a particularly self-destructive scene.)

Mary: I don't know why he's acting that way. Let me tell you, he has to get ahold of himself, or he's going to ruin his whole marriage.

TLC.com: What did you think of Vonda and Barbie's new looks?

Mary: If I looked as pretty as they did, I would never go back Amish. I've never had a lip wax, and I probably wouldn't.

TLC.com: Bates' makeover was the most drastic of all. Vonda said a bishop might think he's possessed, dressing in leather and necklaces. What do you think?

Mary: That's probably what I would've said, with those necklaces. The outfit just didn't look right with the necklaces. The haircut was kind of cute. It's different, he's young and wild.
