Nothing even as cogent as your problem with the ep, which is an actual plot hole.

People can like or dislike an episode for whatever reason; I just think it's shortsighted for people (in general) to dismiss Goodbye, Norma Jean completely as a gimmick, ratings-grab episode, because they will miss a lovely nuanced performance by the guest actress.
No worries, I wasn't feeling singled out, or got at.
