During the course of the episode, Ellen is given a package that was classified “undeliverable”. That unopened package serves as a metaphor for the show itself…Something from Ellen’s past returns unexpectedly, and although it’s wrapped in nice paper, and it comes with a friendly note, there’s an overwhelming sense that when it’s opened, everything will change. The series has built a reputation for attaching those metaphors to the simplest of glances, phrases or everyday objects.
