Candy Richards, the washed-up, narcissistic actress returns wanting Christian and Sean to perform a skin pigment implantation to make her more African-American for her re-discovered roots. Meanwhile, Christian meets a feisty, chain-smoking lady, named Roxy St. James, at a cancer victims therapy group where she wants him to perform a mastectomy on her to cure her incurable fear of developing breast cancer. Sean becomes troubled when Olivia wants a full makeover for herself as she and Julia are planning to move back east, in which Olivia (unknown to everyone) is emotionally stressed to her breaking point after covering up her psycho daughter Eden's murder attempt on Julia. But it naturally all turns out bad... even for the innocent and the evil alike. Written by Anonymous

And I thought that I'd seen it all...
28 January 2009 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

This episode is the reason why I can't stop watching the show and have been the loyal fan since the first season. Just when you think that there is no way to move on, and the creators have explored all possible and impossible surreal situations and relations, here comes the episode Roxy St. James which I watched in total fascination and disbelief. Some scenes made me turn away, the others - pinch myself to make sure that I see them in reality not in some surreal nightmare. I am talking about that video "Yo Stank Bitch" by Jennifer Coolidge (Candy "Coco" Richards). I mean, you have to see it to believe. Some characters made their exit, and we probably will see them in flashbacks and as the nightmares of still existing heroes. The others made their appearance after long absence and provided completely distorted but plausible account of the fateful event from the last season. It may not be my favorite episode but it sure is memorable - just think of Roxy St. James and HOW SHE DEALT with her deepest fears.
