This was awesome. Totally loved it from beginning to end. This one has J&J separated by the almighty business trip, so while Jonathan's away, Jennifer goes to a women's only spa (of the 80's) for a pick me up. For reasons unclear, she checks in under her maiden name of Edwards. It's the upmteenth time this season that they've made a big to-do about Jennifer's maiden name being Edwards. At least the third time, with no mentiones in the past seasons that I've seen so far (tho I missed most of the 1st). Not sure why. In any event, things get dicey when Jennifer stumbles onto the owner's plot to bilk wealthy widows out of their millions for one lump sum price of getting dead first. Guest Carole Cook is wonderful as the mouthy, extroverted, diet-cheating fun & funny spa client that Jennifer befriends. But the highlight -- HIGHLIGHT -- of this one is when Jonathan shows up to the spa in drag. Oh. My. God. I was on the floor laughing. He was so funny I was crying. RJ totally rocked his scenes in not only his dress, but in the next scenes pink tights, very tight shorts that hid nothing (not sure where he, ahem, tucked it, but it was a good job), and his pink sweatshirt. And makeup. And wig. Holy moly!! There's one point where Jennifer hugs him, and he rolls his eyes as the camera pans away, and the whole thing is just fantastic. Also interesting is the mention, YET AGAIN, of someone soemwhere making a donation to a wildlife preserve. The only thing I was so-so on was the Harts chasing the bad guy in a fire truck. I'm sorry, but that's stealing a fire engine! Writers, come on! Other than that, I'm telling you, this is a great episode, and Jonathan alone all by himself as the Countest von Hartiwhatever in the wig and makeup and tights and shorts and leg warmers and most hysterical accent fake European Lady Accent EVER is a sight not to miss if this episode comes to a rerun near you!
