But when she's MIA for entire episodes or pops up briefly and randomly it does not work as a plot device. And shouldn't she have appeared again at the beach?

I don't know if I would have written her into the beach scene as at that point, I think Kev was actively trying to shut out all of his trauma and focus on Trish coming, and on the setting and on having hope for the future. But I do agree that one of the reasons she didn't quite work is the points at which she appears. She actually turned up consistently in the second half of the series, but I still feel like having at least one more scene perhaps around Episode 3 where she chats briefly with Kev (probably about his finding out about Mal and Trish), and we're still under the impression that she's real... that might have solidified the entire character better.

You know, I didn't even think about that but that's a fair point about Emily. Thing is, I was operating under the assumption that Rosa was just so far gone she wasn't even considering things like that in that moment. If she had been herself, she probably would have thought about it... but she really wasn't.

And Trish not wearing matching underwear. Because how many TV shows and films ALWAYS show the actresses in matching underwear. How realistic is that ?! ;)

Haha! Yup. Points, show, for undergarment realism. ;)
