  1. Candace will be the plot twist we never saw coming. I’m a mother and nothing like her, but she seems sane, which is completely erroneous. In fact, we’re going to see just how responsible she is for everything, including her true opposition to Sam getting therapy.

  2. Hoping Alan gets through to Candace and gets her to turn in her son. She needs to a top waiting for her son to “protect” her and start “protecting” herself!

  3. Come ON, Steve/Alan. Get in touch with your rage. Pick up the metal chair and bean the loony killer. You can do it!!

  4. Agree with Wilma. Candace (sam’s mother) is as crazy (if not more so) as sam. Don’t know if i can ever see Michael Scott in the same light again 😕
