  • A cute episode

    I felt kind of bad for Maureen in this one. The girl is trying her hardest to do her job and do it well, but Carol has it in for her and no amount of sweet talking from Nick will change that.

    Heck, Nick is part of the problem. He chooses the worse possible times to talk to Maureen. I mean, he was going to see Carol so that means he knew she was nearby. But instead of just waving at Maureen or such, he had to have a sneaky looking conversation.

    Going on to the visuals, Maureen did look stunning in red. I can't think of another actress than Amber Heard that can pull off that look so well.

    I did like the interactions between Sean and Alice. Alice has to be one of my top three fav Bunnies on the show. Watching her have to visit the club as a "normal" housewife was precious. Brenda was obviously loving it too.

    Not a bad episode.moreless

    • Scarlet Bunny: Hidden Secrets and Forbidden Love

      Maureen is called the Scarlet Bunny by Carol-Lynne after she again catches her talking with Nick, to whom she thinks Maureen wants. In the 1850 story, The Scarlet Letter, the main character Hester must wear a bright red "A" to mark her as an adulterous woman.
