In season one, Rose's mother comes to visit. In season four, Rose's little sister comes to visit and Rose catches her with Blanche's boyfriend. She tells Sophia, who doesn't believe her, and Rose says "I swear on my mother's grave!" No mention was ever made of her mother's death, although it is possible the death happened and was simply omitted from the storyline. See more »

Little Sister (#4.21)
8 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose's sister Holly comes for a visit. Her and Rose always had issues and it starts again. She on purpose alienates Rose while making up excuses. Rose notices it but Dorothy and Blanche whole like Holly think this is just misunderstanding. And then Holly sleeps with Blanche's boyfriend.

A pretty good episode where a lot is happening. Poor Rose! They really made a good plot there, it is also great how it all comes out, very well written.

And the dog story is very good as well. Sophia keeping on mixing up the dogs! Both dogs very cute, I just felt bad for the one who would have to go back to the store!
