From what we can see, Amber's losing her grip on reality. All it will take is just one final push to send over the edge. Not a big push, but something small like learning Walky and Sal are siblings, her dad piecing things together and setting the cops on her for assault, or some thug that prepared for her. It won't even end with a final fight with Sal: just Amber being subdued and carted off as she raves like a lunatic. And just to add insult to injury, her dad will play the whole thing for sympathy. He'll be saying to the media how the convenience store holdup and his attempts to "toughen her up" have turned his little angel into a monster, and he'll be completely accurate; no one will buy that he's abusive because the only ones who know are Amber or people that have an interest in keeping Amber out of jail. The only silver lining to the whole thing will be that Joyce's family will see this and decide to take softer measures with Joyce so that she doesn't go crazy too.

And to makes things worse, her friends are going to get hit with RealityEnsues: Dorothy will never get into Yale because she covered for Amber a while back, Danny and Ethan will become targets for whoever Amazi-Girl beat up, and her friends in general will become pariahs. The only silver lining to the whole thing will be that Sal and Joyce's family families will see this and decide pay better attention to take softer measures with Joyce so that she doesn't go crazy too.their daughters.

* Between Joyce's parents, Hank is by far the kinder and more reasonable of the two. Even with his [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist beliefs and lifestyle,]] Hank has shown a flexibility that his wife utterly lacks. He was able to see Ross [=MacIntyre=] for the asshole he was, even before he pulled a gun on Becky and Joyce. Meanwhile Carol defends the man who threatened to shoot her own child. Hank acknowledges his daughter is an adult and is even willing to defer to her judgment in certain matters. Carol's response to Joyce developing opinions outside of her belief system is to try and drag her back into the fold. Hank treats Becky with kindness upon seeing her again, even if he has reservations about her sexuality. Carol treats Becky with hostility as soon as she walks in the door. Hank acknowledges that his son Jordan is a “good kid” even if they don't always agree. Carol explicitly wants to avoid another “Jordan situation” with Joyce. It's even hinted that, [[NoodleIncident whatever happened with Jordan,]] he was driven away from close association with his family due to the rigid fundamentalist beliefs that Carol clings to. Having already had one of his children alienated from him, and now facing that same possibility with Joyce (and Jocelyne if she ever comes out as trans to her parents), it's possible that Hank will decide that his love for his children is more important than keeping the peace with his wife and end the marriage or at least separate from her.

Likely due to her past embarrassing defeat, Amazi-Girl will take her game up to the next level, accidentally (or purposefully) injure Sal so badly that her survival will be in doubt. This may lead to major impacts in the cast like Walky confronting his parent's favouritism, Amber's furthering mental unbalance due to her being unsure of where she ends and Amazi-Girl begins, ect.
