Beauty and the Beast (#7.3)
24 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia is in a wheel chair and Dorothy hires a nurse to take care of her. First Sophia is not happy because it is a nurse from Shady Pines but then they get along and Dorothy has trouble to get rid of her. And Blanche has her grand daughter over and gets her into a beauty pageant which Melissa isn't happy about.

An alright episode. Some things didn't make sense. Like Sophia being too much into that nurse was not very believable. Nor was that Melissa actually wanted to call Blanche "grandma",kids don't really care how to call somebody. But it had a few fun moments that made this episode a decent watch.
