Nothing to Fear, But Fear Itself (#3.5)
18 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose's aunt dies and she has to give an eulogy. She is afraid to do it as she is scared of public speaking. By going with her Dorothy and Blanche have to face their own fears. Dorothy that of flying and Blanche the scary dream she always had when she was stuck with bald men in a small place since all men on the plane were bald!.

Another episode with lots of funny moments. I just couldn't help but laugh with Blanche and Rose when they imagine Dorothy to be naked and burst with laughter.

And the scene on the plane is pretty awesome as well. Great acting and great lines.
