  • An old friend of Dorothy's visits and brings with her a secret.

    Jean, a lesbian and an old friend of Dorothy visits the four ladies, just to promptly fall for Rose. Although Rose does not reciprocate, the writers managed to let Jean down gently and in a very respectful and sweet manner. For being written in 1986 the episode deals with homosexuality almost better than shows produced today; thumbs up! Betty White's Rose is endearing as always. Rue McClanahan manages to pull off Blanche's snotty, jealous routine perfectly. Lois Nettleton did an admirable job as Jean, although it must have been a difficult role to play at the time. A great episode which, hopefully, clarified a few things for some viewers in 1986.
