Read Mary's episode 6 recap. Bates and Barbie got body piercings in this episode. How did you feel watching that?

Mary: No comment. Vonda and Barbie took a ballet class because they'd always wanted to try ballet. Is there something in the English world that you've always wanted to try but haven't yet?

Mary: There's a lot of things I'd like to try, like something with fashion and cooking. Matt went back to Ohio to work out things with Courtney and his mother-in-law, Venus, led them in a counseling session. Do you think it was effective?

Mary: Counseling is good if it's done with the right person. But with your mother-in-law, definitely not. I really don't think it was helpful because it was not done the right way. Barbie related most closely to Bates' breakup with Rena because she has an ex-Amish boyfriend waiting for her back home. Do you think she can make her relationship work?

Mary: I don't know. They're in New York, and anything could happen. Miriam decided to come back to New York. Do you think that was the right decision, leaving Aaron again?

Mary: Yes, I think it was the right decision because she'll be getting more lessons on how to do construction work. She's going to have an idea of what she can do in that job, and then she'll be able to give her son more than she could any other way. How do you think the girls will react to Miriam coming back, given that she didn't say goodbye when she left?

Mary: Probably not good because I don't think Vonda and Barbie like Miriam too much. It seems like Miriam is always the one being left back and the other two are always together. Is there anything else you'd like to say about this episode?

Mary: I just wish Matt would get rid of his mother-in-law. His marriage would work much better! Believe me, if my mother-in-law worked the way his does, there would be some issues. Being a mother-in-law looks pretty hard. You're a mother-in-law to Rebecca and Chapel. What's that like?

Mary: All I can say is, I don't agree with a lot of things they do, but I still would not ever interfere with their marriage. It's very, very hard to be a mother-in-law. You have no idea if you're going to do something to offend them, or if you're even making the right choice. What does it take to be a good mother-in-law?

Mary: A lot of patience. I probably treat my sons differently because I'm not able to boss them around as much. They have their own bosses now!
