Added DiffLines:

** Season Five has Patsy slowly becoming more comfortable with her sexuality as part of her character development. Although she still is terrified of people finding out, and struggles to show affection, [[spoiler: Delia- who, in what would be a frustrating, soap-operaish [[UnexplainedRecovery Unexplained Recovery]] if it weren't so [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming wonderfully]] [[EarnYourHappyEnding deserved]] has recovered and regained her memory- is slowly drawing her out of her shell and helping her feel safer. One of the final episodes even has Delia taking Patsy to a gay pub, where they get to dance together, not in their heads.]]
