Before and After (#2.15), 15 January 2014

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Rose has to be taken in the hospital where she passes out, after she tells her friends that she died and went to heaven and now that she is back she will live life to the fullest. And she does, but Dorothy and Blanche don't approve of her having fun. So she moves out but it doesn't go well for either of them.

Well I was totally on Rose's side here. Nothing that she did seemed to be so horrible. It seems the other two were just jealous that she had fun. And Blanche was a hypocrite as always. So I am a bit sad they made it look as if Rose's life enjoyment was wrong.

But it had funny moments. Especially Rose's description of heaven experience, announcing how she will eat life and Blanche saying that Rose will be fine cause her doctor is a Jew!
