After growing up with a mobster uncle who always insulted him and had him killing people via explosives from the time he was barely a teenager, it's no wonder that Dom grew up to be a bad egg. I'm always one for redemption, though, so when Dom said that he wanted to open a fish store with his new identity, I believed that he had turned over a new leaf. I know we saw the bit in the beginning, but I wasn't ready to assume that things were as they seemed in that brief clip. But then Mary and Marshall caught the woman he was "going to marry" with her ex, and I knew Dom was going to lose it. He seemed "off" leading up to this bit of bad news, so I had a feeling that the opening scene was about to come true exactly as it had seemed when I first saw it. Mary and Marshall had to take a huge risk (since neither was authorized to pursue protecting this woman from the witness), but it saved the woman's life. I guess this was why we never heard any scolding from Stan.
With Dom on the run, Mary and Marshall went from hiding their witness to drawing him out all in the span of one episode. It was an interesting turn of events, and I enjoyed seeing the show shake things up a little (for an episode). Meanwhile, Mary was worried about Brandi and Marshall was worried about Mary. Turns out, the latter was not in vein because Mary kinda sorta slipped up a bit with Raph. She saw him at the restaurant (which she was roped into going to with Dom) and this set off an excruciating night of jealousy and sadness for her. So, she called him at 2 in the morning and he came over. The two slept together and Mary knew the moment she opened her eyes the next morning that it was a mistake. By the end of the episode, she seemed to finally accept that she and Raph were no more and that it would be for the best -- eventually. She kinda broke my heart, though, when she started crying in her car after Raph took the last of his stuff and drove away.
