First: the URL.

Second: Mom. It HAD to be her mom.

Third: Think she's going to go ballistic if she ever finds out about Daniel?

Of course she needs to complain! Atsali looks better than she does.

Darn. I was expecting Lilith.

What is with Jesse's mother? Does she aspire to be the Texas Cheerleader Mother?

Yeah, and Hanners sounds a lot like Jessie, there.

Bravo Charlie, you might want to call in the mortar support from the Big Guns (literally/figuratively).

I'm certain that there's something deep and suspicious going on here. I don't think it's just a question of looks.

I mean, Jessie's mom seems to be suffering from jalousie, but I think that's just window dressing.

Bravo Base this is Bravo Charley- Main player has been ID'd, it is 'Tuna Mommy', I say again it is 'Tuna Mommy'. Seems to be issue with 'Little Tuna's' loss of status, IE retaliatory strike. Chasseure is in full excuse mode and getting nowhere fast, will likely have to learn to flip dead animal parts at local fast-&-greasy. Heavy guns are not in play at this time, but seem to be in position... 'Tuna Mommy' seems in perfect killing zone and is totally unaware thereof. Request forty gallons of tartar sauce, over...

You really all seem to be overlooking the greatest thing from this page.

Jessie called Atsali her friend, and in retaliation over what her own mother had done. This proves her niceties towards Atsali aren't all an act, she really does think of her as a friend now. :3

1. Puts out a big plate of cookies for whoever called this... I don't recall who it was, but I do remember it being called that Jessie's mom was the complainer...

2. Jessie's mom is quite proud of being a bitch...

3. No for much longer when she gets a load of who she's messing with.

Jessie's mom isn't incurring the wrath of an underaged Para like she may think she is... She's incurring the wrath of the Time Keeper's Daughter and the Demon Shepherd and Bud... AND POSEIDON... Lord of all undersea creatures. She's about to get it broke off in her ass clear to the knee... Jessie's mom is in deep kimchi and she doesn't even know it yet.

Dear Jessie's mom. Old Jedi Proverb... "There's always a bigger fish..."

EDIT: Drops a can of Chicken of the Sea in the pun jar in case I unwittingly let a pun or two slip... Sorry Charlie...

You're right. This was a good test. We know Jessie's been worried about Atsali's eventual reaction to what her brother did, and taking Atsali's side might have just been her own form of "damage control" (as she put it to Krystle)...

... but coming to Atsali's defense against her own mother, prob'ly means it's more than just tactics. She didn't protest her mother's bitchiness "because it'll make things worse", but because her friend was the target of it.

Loyalty. As they say, you don't get to choose the family you're born into, but you do get to choose your friends.

Seems that Jessie and her mom have very different ideas about what good "damage control" is. Same words, very distinct approaches.

I don't think we know yet why she was sniping at Atsali. Is she a prude, or jealous of a younger could-be rival, or is she so enmeshed in the social-dominance game that she resents Atsali having supplanted Jessie as the social focus of the school?

I wonder if the elder Ms. Gotlieb has any idea of the fire she is playing with by harassing Atsali?

Also I wonder how one makes a living being a bitch? The only example I can think of is if she were doing the voice work for a reboot of the old Lassie series.

Now the big question is, who will be the first adult to intervene on behalf of Atsali - because it's a good bet that "mom" won't let well enough alone and will initiate a confrontation.

Personally, I'm hoping for Jin, because she is the most talented of the bunch of eviscerating someone without an ounce of compassion.
Of course, if things get really snippy, she's going to get to deal with a pissed-off mama-bear Katherine.
