This is one of my other favorites so far. I really like Lucille. Not in a Buster way. But she's a great villain. And how heartwarming that she no longer wants to be seen as a villain. It's the first time we've really gotten to delve into the heart and mind of Lucille and try to understand her.
I liked the gags with the Real Asian Prison Housewives of Orange County. "Roop hore? You couldn't have chosen a harder word to say."
And Lucille and Tobias are a very good comedy team. They hardly interacted in the first three seasons.

Tobias providing actual therapy for Lucille while being completely oblivious was sweet and hilarious.
I guess we're coming around to finding out that it was Rebel who Michael sees with GOB back in ep 1? Then again, if it seems obvious we're heading in that way, I kinda think it won't be.
I didn't realize the Queen Mary sank but I should have since most everyone was soaked after the arrest.
I'm guessing the Chinese ordered the blowback?
As much as I'm loving the format for this season, I'm curious to see how this would have played out as regular episodes. The family meeting where Michael quits and Lucille's trial have been great running gags (I'm disappointed we saw the trial in full before seeing why Maeby, George Michael, and Buster weren't there), but I feel like as straight up scenes, they would have been a bit unwieldly. (I still love that Ann was at the penthouse with GOB, sitting between furniture in the corner). Cinco de Cuatro would have made a GREAT season finale with how all the plotpoints keep coming together.
The first season was okay, the second season was excellent, the third season was even better, the fourth season wasn't as good as the previous two, the fifth season was tremendous, and then there's the rest of it.
