  • Belle's personal life merges with her work life.

    A great episode and a definite step up from the last episode. In continuation to Ben finding out about Belle's secret job. He's having a hard time to accept that fact that Belle is a prostitute. We get to see how Hannah became Belle, a prostitute. So that's an eventful scene. Belle is booked to do a threesome with a regular and another girl. I love the line, "I will go gay for pay." Belle connects with the other girl, Naomi. They become friends while Belle is still not talking to Ben. In the end, she finds out that Naomi stole her regular. Who is she going to go to when she has a bad day at work? She goes to Ben, they makeup. It turns out that they used to "shag". I'm liking their friendship, not to sure about the wedding arc. Since they don't focus much on the bride, Vanessa. Belle is asked to be Ben's best man, and the episode ends. Best episode so far in the season.moreless
  • Another great episode, this time things are more personal as we get a better look into Hannah's outside life. Warning spoilers ahead.

    So Hannah finally tells her friend about her real job, and he has a hard time taking it. Belle takes an old client but with a twist, he wants a second girl to join in. I didn't expect Belle to get ditched for the second girl, though maybe since he was a regular for Belle, he needed a new girl. Whatever the case, Belle obviously doesn't feel good about being ditched, and goes to her best friend for support. I was happy to see her friend still being a good friend, but it was obviously hard on him. Not exactly a small secret she was keeping from him, so I understand what he might be going through. I really liked this episode, we get some insight into how Hannah got into the business and we get some more character development.moreless
