BEWARE OF SPOILERS
I really liked that we got to see Ruby as a central character. Prior to watching the show, my research pointed to Ruby having a pivotal role in the show. We did see her in the haunted house episode, but this episode we truly got to know her and how she fits into this world.
This episode started amazingly with Ruby waking up as a white woman. She’s completely disorientated which William (or Christina) wanted her to be. He’s given her the gift to be able to experience life as a white woman whenever she wants to. Each time though she has to have that gory death. She needs to free herself from the shell.

What does Ruby do with this gift? She embraces her own dream of working at the department store. It’s funny how small minded her actions are. She becomes the assistant manager and she sees how unqualified Tamara, the black woman who was hired last episode, is and also the treatment she endures. The white women around her look down upon Tamara, the manager sexualize her while of course looking down upon her, and Ruby sees how she can help Tamara by educating her.
