Worst Episode Of The Series
14 June 2010 | by (Bayside, San Andreas) – See all my reviews

Where were the writers going with this crap? I'll try to review it: A detective shows up and says Sophia is being accused of burning down Shady Pines many, many years ago. First of all, they have absolutely no evidence, just a death bed confession. So anyone with a brain can figure out, that's not legal.

So, anyways, a lawyer comes to ask the girls questions, then we get 2 hours of absentminded clips that have already been covered in Golden Moments in Three On The Couch.

The writing is simply incredibly stupid. At one point, Sophia tells everyone she is going to run away to Sicily...cut to pointless flashback! The actors have nothing to work with, so their performances suffer.

Basically, skip this episode of this perfect series!
