Isadora has found a secret room in her home that contains a naked imprisoned woman. That would be shocking enough in Izzys quiet suburban life, but the woman says, “I’m your mother.” Izzy’s husband soon shows up with a “gaslighting” story about how it’s all in her own head, and not real. She seems to be buying it. Meanwhile, we see a new section of the neighborhood, an underground control room where the husbands of the hex wives are monitoring their every move. The wall of fire surrounding the place seems a pretty good way to keep the women at home, too. Curiouser and curiouser. It’s only when the girlfriends get together to talk that the stories they all believe begin to unravel.

Still interesting, recommended
