Betty Suggests That Henry Rape Sally's Friend Sandy

Episodes One and Two, "The Doorway"

It's improbable the word "likable" would ever be used in the same sentence as the name "Betty Francis," but even this sick joke was uncharacteristic of Betty's prior cruel and selfish comments. It started off innocently: Betty and Henry are making harmless small talk about Sally's visiting violin-prodigy friend, Sandy. Out of nowhere, Betty offers up the idea of her husband raping Sandy while Betty "holds her arms down." Henry is just as creeped out as we are, but there's a perfectly good explanation for Betty's kinky idea: "You said you wanted to spice things up." Obviously this is not what Henry had in mind, and Betty's mischievous smile at the end of the scene hints that she was just messing around, but it still left a bad taste in everyone's mouths.
