Regarding developments in the 5/10 episode:

I think that the writers are trying to contrast the "good" Madeline with the
"evil" (coke-snorting, etc.) Laura.  Evidence: in the scene in the diner
with James and Donna, Madeline orders a "Cherry Coke" which she leaves 
untouched (hmmm...) when she leaves the restaurant - and which the camera
focuses on for a good couple of seconds.

Get it?  *Cherry* Coke?  *Untouched*?  :-)  :-)

However, I really bet that's what the writers intended.
