Episode Recap

Rose comes in all excited because she won a free giveaway, after hours of filling out forms and licking envelopes. The grand prize is a free prostate exam. Blanche shows Dorothy a necklace her Grammy gave her and that she's worn only three times, and states she'll be wearing it for her moonlight madness party that she's throwing.

Sophia is alarmed when she realizes that full moon is falling on leap year, and states that a woman she once knew put a curse on Dorothy, "Beware the full moon on leap year." In order to break the curse, Sophia must perform three tasks: kiss a fool, help a holy man, and reveal the betrayal of a loved one.

Meanwhile, Rose wins another prize: a honeymoon trip to Paris. Since she's not married, she figures she'll have to forfeit the prize. Blanche and Dorothy convince her, however, that winning this honeymoon trip might be a sign that it's time to take things to the next level with Miles.

Blanche throws her party but with opposite results of what she wanted. All the men are attracted to Dorothy and ignore Blanche. In the meantime, Sophia kisses a man who thought Rose was smart, trips and then helps up a rabbi, and desperately tries to fulfill the third requirement to break the curse.

At the party, Rose tells Miles about the honeymoon trip, and he agrees they should get married. So Rose gets down on one knee in front of him, and they make the announcement to the rest of the party that they're getting married. However, moments afterward Dorothy is congratulating Miles on the lanai and they begin quoting Shakespeare. Suddenly, they end up kissing, and Sophia finds them, thereby witnessing "betrayal of a loved one." [to be continued…]
