No. 2 - Sisterly Smackdown

You'd think after a year Peter and Mal would come to terms with the fact that they're now family and be civil towards one another. But unfortunately such is not the case. Mal cannot seem to move past her issues with Peter, which would maybe OK, but she can't stop constantly voicing her concerns to Cynthia. As much as Cynthia tries to remain neutral and let them work things out on their own, I've been wondering when she'd reach her breaking point. And we finally see her crack at the anniversary party. Finally! If my sibling wouldn't let up about my significant other, I would have told them off long ago. Or at least gotten back at them by passing around embarrassing childhood photos of them at the next family function.

To be fair to Mal, Peter hasn't exactly tried very hard to win her over after the wedding debacle and he shouldn't have made those digs at her during his speech. But it was Cynthia and Peter's day! She could have at least waited until a day or two later to express her disappointment to Cynthia. I have to say it was pretty satisfying to see Cynthia stick up for herself and her marriage by telling Mal to get it together or get gone when she started to cry. You go, girl!
