Spoilers for 'Filthy Rich' Episode 4 'Romans 8:30
Becky Monreaux (Olivia Macklin) has had an audacious personality since the start of the series. Besides narrating the episodes and hating on her husband, Eric Monreaux's (Corey Cott) new siblings, she seems to want to make sure that her man gets a piece of the Monreaux cash pile. Her manipulation skills have been on point from the start and she has been super invested in making sure that Eric listens to her brother Reverend Paul Luke Thomas (Aaron Lazar).
Paul is not only part of the Sunshine network but as this episode revealed, he was also part of the 1820, a small group of businessmen who "break bread and study scripture in secret." He was also involved in the stalker incident that scared Ginger Sweet (Melia Kreiling) and her mother Tina Sweet (Rachel York). Fans have hated Becky from the start, but this episode truly showed how she behaves with her husband. Fans now understand, why Eric strays away to speak to Rachel (Aqueela Zoll) on Sin Wagon, an online adult platform run by Ginger.

Becky, who is already pregnant, seems to only care about how Eric fits into his family business. In this episode, even though he's in the home with his entire family, Eric finds some time to speak to Rachel online. She warns him that emotional intimacy can lead to physical intimacy, to which he replied that he was married. After going into the bedroom to see his wife, he tries to be intimate with her only to be turned down. Apparently, Becky believes that sex is only meant for procreation.
"Damn, Becky only had sex with him to get pregnant? No wonder he's been on Sin Wagon. Where in the Bible does it say sex is only for procreating, and why don't I believe Becky believes that? #FilthyRichFOX," wrote one fan. Another added, "How has no one snatched Becky by the throat yet? That baby has to be the only thing keeping her from getting her butt whooped. #FilthyRichFOX #FilthyRich"

Fans are furious at Becky, because Eric seems to genuinely be a good guy. Others, on the other hand, really hope that he catches on soon. "Eric is stupid, can't he see she just wanted a baby to secure her check #FilthyRich #FilthyRichFOX @FilthyRichFOX," wrote one user. From the looks of it, we would assume that Becky is sending her husband straight into Rachel's arms. Eric hasn't lost his cool with his wife yet, but he's definitely inching closer. Until then though, fans are enjoying the small daggers Margaret Monreaux (Kim Cattrall) and Antonio Rivera (Benjamin Levy Aguilar) poke at Becky. "Margaret checks Becky at every chance LOL #FilthyRichFOX," wrote one amused fan. Another added, "I love how unbothered Antonio is when Becky is being ... Becky. He likes getting under her skin. #FilthyRichFOX #FilthyRich"
Episode 5 airs on Monday, October 26, from 9-10 pm ET on FOX.
