Enraging to listen to - but Esther is stil awesome

The passive-agressive, alcoholic and abusive husband grunts his way through this therapy session. He has zero introspective skills. You will want to scream back at the wife: JUST LEAVE HIM ALREADY. At least the ending redeems the episode somewhat, but I could have done without the enraging 40 minutes that preceded it. Esther Perel is a skilled therapist who tried to find his redeeming qualities and move him to change. Alas, her interventions were lost on him.

It had an unexpected twist, but it was enjoyable.

I loved it. Esther has an amazing ability to connect the dots and really hit a nerve. It really has me rooting for the couples to realize the bad dynamics and to change them.

Wonderful insight from Esther

I really enjoyed listening to these sessions with Esther. Her narration throughout the session really give depth to her actions.
