United States of Tara Review: "To Have And To Hold"
Okay so we only have one more episode left before the second season of United States of Tara comes to a halt and we can honestly say this was one of our favorite episodes ever!
In "To Have And To Hold" we finally got some answers into Tara's dark past.
Thankfully, Mimi wasn't a bad guy, but who would have known she was a foster parent? That definitely caught us off guard. Mimi tells Charmaine that all her foster children come from really bad situations at home. This has to mean that the traumatic experience that happened to Tara took place in her parents home. What we found so interesting was to see that Alice is a figment of what Tara remembers of Mimi.
It was also very intriguing to see T come back for the first time all season - followed by a new alter, Chicken. The five year old version of Tara. Chicken came in to protect Tara from something that happened in her past - all the answers we are waiting to hear must happen next week at the wedding when Tara can confront her parents.
The kids storylines that have held their own. Marshall realizes that their is something more between him and Lionel. When Marshall leaned into Lionel and kissed both his eyelids, we were Awing to the TV. They are pretty cute together!
Kate has her hands full with her new 27 year old boyfriend Zack. Forget the fact that she met him online and he had her sit on a cake, but something about this guy gives us the creeps. It is almost like Zack is trying to mold Kate into something she isn't. Kate is fiercely independent - so we hope she snaps out of it and realizes that he is not the one!
What did you make out of last night's episode? We were happy to see that Max showed up on Buck's bike even though Tara told him not to. Max may have cheated on Tara, but he really does love her and wants to make sure she is always safe.
