Mrs. America S1 E9 Recap & After Show: If you thought Karma was a B, try Politics!
In the season finale of Mrs. America, our history lesson is concluded…for now.  It’s 1979 and congress has granted a three year extension on the ERA deadline.  However, Carter does Bella dirty and fires her from her cabinet position.  But this backfires when Gloria and the girls all resign from their positions and their support of Carter which later causes him to lose to Reagan. Alice finds her own identity away from Phyllis and gets a job. After passing the bar, Phyllis, who is at the heighth of her powers, backs Reagan and plays a significant part in his election.  Unfortunately, she is too polarizing and does not get appointed to Reagan’s cabinet.  Phyllis ends the season as she began it, as a housewife preparing dinner.

Mrs. America S1 E7 Recap & After Show: PIE TO THE FACE
In this episode Phyllis starts off with a bang – or a pie in her face by a known male feminine activist – right after she speaks in front of her committee. Bandaged and unraveling she struggles with sanity, and what seems to be menopausal changes, as she dubs together liberal speeches to produce hate speech cassette tapes that she sent out all across the US. Belle loses her senate race but is quickly hired with the help of Midge to lead up the first government-funded women’s convention - that she actually created years ago.  After receiving unsettling news once again, Belle is made aware of potential chaos that could arise at the women’s convention, she is tempted to remove gay rights off the ballet. But after many demands and isolation from her fellow feminists peers, she decides to put aside her fear and caution to keep it on the ballet, reuniting all the women in their fight in ratifying the ERA.

We get a behind the scenes in depth look at the lives of couples Phyllis and Fred along with Brenda and Marc. We learn more about Phyllis's insecurities when it comes to balancing work life and home life. She takes the LSAT test and wants to pursue her education as a lawyer but doesn't necessarily feel the support from husband Fred. A strange young man appears at her doorstep with her son John's wallet. Phyllis is terrified and does her best to cover it up. She has a talk with her son John about the wallet and being extra careful with his actions. Brenda experiments with her sexuality and gets together with photographer Jewels. Although she tells husband Mark about the incident, she continues to be with her sexually. Brenda learns that she is pregnant and Marc is thrilled. Gloria struggles between a conventional life and a unconventional life as she approaches 40. Last but not least, is the big debate between the couples. Phyllis loses all credibility when she makes up a legal case and feels completely unsupported when husband Fred doesn't chime into to save her. Brenda and Marc win the debate as a power couple when they stick to all the facts.
