It's a Miserable Life (#2.4)
12 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The girls want to save a giant oak tree but the woman whose property it is on doesn't care what happens to it, she hates both people and trees. At court Rose tells her to drop dead and she indeed does. Sophia kind of feels bad for her not having any close people and they decide to organize her funeral.

I love how once again they make Rose "kill" somebody, she just can't stop!.

I also liked the scene where the woman comes to a wrong funeral, for a moment they make you think it is one of those "oh you didn't know how great she was moments" but soon enough you are back to seeing her in a bad way. And Nan Martin who played Frida Claxton was great in her role.
