    Wow! Sophia temporarily died! Rose revives her, but she was in Heaven and didn't want to come back! Haha, Rose is so bad! I enjoyed this episode! Especially when Sophia jumped off the roof... It was such a great episode. Great theme, great plots, great writing, great acting... It has EVERYTHING! The Heaven scene was pretty funny. They never had a televangelist in Heaven before! Haha! That's pretty funny, even though I have no clue what a televangelist is... Sophia... Haha... "Did I mention I died?" LMAO! Wow, I love her! The BH, which the women thought stands for Blanche Hollingsworth, actually stands for Blast Here! Haha, classic episode!moreless
  • Blanche is distraught over the demolition of her grandmother's plantation.

    This episode was so funny. It was very amazing. The writers are very talented The writers are also very creative when writing the script and with the comedy. Especially with Rose. I was very entertained by this episode. It was a very special episode. I especially loved when Blanche said that her grandmother was still with her and Rose said that she wasn't under the bed, and she wasn't in the closets. This episode was definately a series classic. It was so funny. I couldn't stop laughing. This episode is yet another perfect installment to the seventh season and is one of the best episodes of the series.moreless

    • When Sophia supposedly "jumps" off the roof at Grammie's plantation, her stunt dummy looses its wig in the trees.
