Season 1 focuses on the struggles the two women face and how they are coping with them. Jen faces the untimely death of her husband due to a hit-and-run accident. Meanwhile, Judy tries to cope up with her breakup with Steve, her boyfriend. Season 1 also tells about the grief that women feel when their trust is betrayed. Jen eventually found out that Judy was the driver involved in her husband’s death.
Season 2 is a reversal. The two unlikely BFFs reunited when Steve died. Unknown to Judy, Jen is responsible for Steve’s death. Jen hid this from Judy, and both connive to hide Steve’s death as it would implicate Jen. The story spirals to implicate other people in their lives. All episodes still talk about women’s grief and how women tend to handle difficult and death situations.
