Really?! Moment No. 2 - Peace Out

Clearly Jacklin had been letting her frustrations build up for quite some time. To the point where she left before the take over was complete, which I believe is a Tabatha first. That girl was over it. And it wasn't too hard to see why when Brian came in only to yell at her and tell her she should leave while Tim mumbled some half-hearted words about her importance to the team. What happened to the whole supportive community vibe Sweetgrass was going for?

Really?! Moment No. 1 - Who's the Boss

The management situation was very strange at Sweetgrass. Tim was the owner, but he basically demoted himself to handyman and passed off all managing to Brian. That may not have been the worst thing in the world had Brian been a good manager. Unfortunately such was not the case. Brian's strategy of getting rid of people, since he didn't have the power to fire them, was to be so passive aggressive that they just got up and left. It was one of the most absurd systems I've ever witnessed on the show. Luckily for Sweetgrass, Brian didn't survive the six weeks after Tabatha's takeover, and Tim finally settled back into an active manager role.
