'End of the
'Requiem at Mission Springs'
my favorite episode that Lou was in?" It's a toss up
between two episodes for me. 'I Take This Woman'
and 'Requiem at Mission Springs.' In 'I Take
This Woman,' she was willing to sacrifice herself
to protect others from her so called future husband.
Can't you just see those two together [Lou & Dennis
O'Flarrety]? I like 'Requiem at Missions Springs'
because there is some good tender moments in this episode.
