Carol continues to negotiate a tricky work/life balance. Her devotion to her former boss Merc cost her a chance at running the network, and she now has to contend with a seriously unstable new boss. As the Head of Programming she's responsible for "Pucks" being a hit at any cost, but she's also become a true and trustworthy friend to Beverly. Luckily, Bev and Carol have each other (and plenty of, ahem, herbal remedies) to help them through their relationship woes and ride the waves of the all-important ratings.
