  • The girls dance in a dance marathon for the gay and lesbian center.

    Let me just start off by saying that all things considered, I absolutely loved this episode. This was such a fun episode! It was really great getting to see all of the girls together in this episode. All of the storylines in this episode were great, especially Jenny's. I absolutely loved Jenny in this episode. Mia Kirshner did an amazing job of playing Jenny in this episode. Mia has done an amazing job of playing Jenny all season. I can't believe that Shane slept with Nikki yet again. I also loved Alice's storyline in this episode. Leisha Hailey did a great job of playing Alice in this episode. In closing, I thought that this was a very well written, well acted and well made episode of The L Word from everyone involved, and I can't wait to see the series finale of The L Word.moreless
