One thing I mentioned was that with this being only 12 days long, I got the feeling that Pepa was kind of patronizing Janice, a woman whom Pepa knew wasn't hardly about to listen to reason. I wouldn't have bothered, either. I see it like this: Pepa genuinely tried in the beginning, saw that it was hopeless, and mentally checked out. She may have been an enabler, but I saw it as Pepa deseperately trying to just keep the peace.
