Top 5 of Season 2 Finale

5. That huge egg turning out to be an ostrich egg. Way to put a red herring in there! Nice trick!

4. Maryanne wearing Gran’s wedding dress. Anyone who wears a dead ladies clothes is definitely CooCoo for Coco Puffs!

3. Hoytt telling his mother how it is. This is an amazing character development for him and it will be amazing to see him grow over the period of next season.

2. Sookies engagement proposal. The emotions that it stirred, and the questions that it raised? Brilliant.

1. The Number One best of Season Two Finale? Maryanne is Dead! Thank Goodness, now lets move on to something that is a little less… repetitive.

    LOVED THE WHOLE EPISODE, BUT SEEING BILL SHINE SO BEAUTIFULLY IN THE “DANCE” SEGMENT, WAS A SWEET TREAT. WHAT A DOLL ! HOYT SURPRISED ME, AND IT WAS GREAT SEEING HIM PUT “MOMMA” IN FRONT OF A MIRROR TO SEE HER TRUE SELF. MOMMA WAS HILARIOUS WHILE UNDER THE SPELL. CAN NOT WAIT FOR NEXT SEASON !
