Mob Wives Season 2: Like a Horror Movie

My problems with Ramona have, at times, threatened to tear down the good will I have for Mob Wives. In her first reign of terror season, the newbie has come out swinging, gunning for Drita any time she can get a shot in and trying to convince Renee to join Team Karen. Her aggression may be partially impressive, in terms of how relentless it can be, but mostly, it's annoying; we're nearing the end of season 2 and I feel like we only know one version of Ramona. You know, the loud, pseudo-brawler trying to throw her weight around and while that may be a part of her personality, it makes her very one-note to watch.

Part of why I like Mob Wives is that it shows these women as something other than the mob stereotype, that they've managed to drop the glamour and look at the cold, hard realities of having a connected loved one. They may be very physical and louder than necessary, but you get to see stuff like Renee joking around with her kid, Carla welcoming Joe home, and Drita modeling for the first time in six years. Minus an appearance from her kids a few episodes ago, Ramona has been mostly about, well, getting Drita, which is why tonight's episode of Mob Wives was so necessary. Finally, we got to see Ramona be a mom to her child, as she brought daughter Melina to visit father figure Joe in prison after his recent arrest. Until we get to see who Ramona is, there's no way she's of any value to Mob Wives and showing her nurturing side both made her more sympathetic and drove a point home about the cycle of violence in the mob. These women have been trying to break the cycle and make sure their children don't make the same mistakes they did; watching Ramona see herself in Melina, the pain and the helplessness of being separated from a loved one, was a good way to make Ramona less of a robot programmed to destroy Drita and more, y'know, human.
