Stupid Writing!!

OMG, how far has Nicole fallen. Here's a character who has kidnapped her daughter, on the run, already moved from place to place. So next door neighbor Tiffany (could she be more obvious in her play for info??) wants to borrow a towel of all things. Nicole says, "Sure, come on in" and within one segment they're instant BFFs. Then Nicole pulls out her bag and within 5 feet of new bud Tiff doles out cash from her eye popping wad. Why not just wave a banner saying "Rob me!"
Are you kidding? Our once cagey, spunky, ballsy gal has dissolved into a soft, weepy victim whose brain has fallen out of her skull.
