Guest CastEdit


  • Rose: I'm the kiss of death. It's the second time a man has died in my bed.


  • Sophia and Dorothy have just returned from Rose's room after checking to see if Rose's companion is in fact deceased. However, they come around the corner from the wrong direction. In every other episode, we know that Rose's room is down the hall and to the left. Sophia and Dorothy don't walk down the hall into the living room at all. They walk from around the corner from the right-hand side. We know they were just standing there waiting for their cue instead of making it actually look authentic as if they were actually checking Rose's room.
