Note from Lola
NOTE: I have had several mentions about Cupid's 15th episode and people have wondered why it was not included in the episode quide. I am aware of its existence, however to the best of my knowledge, it has never aired in North America. I have not seen the episode, I have no information on what it is about. If anyone would like to give me some information on it, I would be more than happy to include it.
