In our continuing coverage of NBC’s The Thing About Pam, Stef, Sheila, and Colleen bring you an in-depth discussion about episode 5, She’s Not Who You Think She Is.

This is the penultimate episode folks! Only one more hour left in this tale about Pam and her bananas story. Seriously, this real-life story sounds more made up than most of the fiction out there. We see Pam starting to become … unhinged. She’s still winning left and right, but she’s starting to feel the walls closing in on her. As Dateline presses on her, Leah reveals Pam’s fate if the people of Troy elect another District Attorney. Mundane events turn into epic showdowns, and even Mr. Hupp pushes back, leaving Pam feeling twitchy. We dive into yet another trial where Pam heavily features. Betsy’s daughter’s growth in this episode comes up a lot in this podcast as we try to deflect the spotlight away from Pam. We talk about how this episode appears to set us up for the inevitable train wreck finish for next week’s finale. Join in the twisty plot with us as we talk about The Thing About Pam!
