Drunken Ben’s Hit-And-Run By Jen’s Stop Sign
Obviously, Dead to Me had to stun viewers with a monumental zinger in the end, and boy, did it. The increasingly fractured Ben, who’d already lost a lot of his optimistic verve after Jen’s romantic dismissal, took an even deeper emotional dive after getting the news about Steve’s body. Purposefully hiding the update from his mom (played by the great Frances Conroy), Ben hit the road with his new friend, a bottle of whiskey. Sadly, Ben plowed into the car Jen and Judy were driving, meant as a gift for Charlie, and proved himself no more morally stable than his brother by quickly driving away from the accident.
