    Although Belle had promised Alex that she's given up escorting, Stephanie tempts her to do one last job, something which Bambi makes Ben privy to.

    Thursday 10pm on ITV2

    A good episode, but in my eyes the ending came a bit too fast. However I can't wait for the next season.

    A really good ending for the season which has been better than it's first.

    There was no doubt that Belle would go back into her escorting ways. Alex is sweet but Belle really does love her job and for the first time, she even told Ben that as well.

    Ben trying to get Belle to write her stuff was a nice tie into the real life Belle Du Jour. Of course it even meant her remembering her time with Ashok which was a nice shout out.

    Bambi really has evolved into a brilliant friend, hasn't she? She even dragged to that hotel because she was worried about Belle. I'm glad she's going to stay in the series (at least I hope she is). Alex being the one to lure Belle into a honey trap of sorts, I did see coming. I thought it was sad that they couldn't work it out but at least ended more cleanly than last time.

    Belle the famous author could have a lot of potential but Bambi was a little right about Belle looking like a transvestite. 9/10.

    I guess Belle's officially "out" in front of her family then - if she's on TV about it they must know by now. I wonder if next season will carry on with her as a famous writer and callgirl, or if they'll take a step back and show how she got to that stage, and the difficulties of telling her family about her job.

    She did disguise herself with the excessive makeup and wig and referred to herself as Belle, not Hannah so they could still be oblivious to what she really gets up to.

    Nobody ever found out who "Belle de Jour" is. It never hit the media.

    I thought the ending was heartbreaking. When the song at the end by Emiliana Torrini started playing, I almost lost it. I could tell that she was heartbroken, and I felt for her. She tried her hardest to be "normal" but she couldn't come through. I hope during the next season she will fall in love. Amazing season 10/10
