5. This season is such a slow burn
Time to see this fabled Cabinet of Curiosities routine: Ethel gives the tiny audience – a creepy, co-dependent mother/son duo – the standard spiel and introduces everyone, including new editions Bette and Dot. Then Elsa comes in riding on a glittery cardboard rocket ship to sing a David Bowie song and all is right with the world. (This can't be the whole act, though, can it?) After the show, the creepy, freak obsessed son attempts to actually purchase Bette and Dot, but they declare that they're not going anywhere because this show is their home now. Elsa's grinning, because her life philosophy is being validated right in front of her. Or at least until Gloria Mott insults her singing.
