A nice picture of the ladies. Good to see them all with a warm smile on their faces instead of a scowl.

Are you referring to the Open / Closed sign? It looks like they are having a private gathering instead of being open to customers. Ivy left some Styrofoam cups on a nearby table while they all drink from nice cups -gasp- :oops:.

It's the Styrofoam cups, never seen them used in the series, but as this is a studio shot, I wonder if crew or cast left them on the table, and Alan snapped the picture without spotting them

Assuming the Styrofoam cups on the OTHER table are for the crew, and the
open/closed sign is Open from the outside to let customers in.

I have just watched the episode How Errol Flynn Discovered the Secret Scar of Nora Batty and Ivy brought them when they all went out into the Greenwood.

If you are a Male I think what is really scary about the picture is that you are between the ladies and the door and you can't get out.
Roz seems to know what is going to happen but is trying hard not to say anything in case she gives the game away.
Glenda seems to be enjoying the tension that you are under.
Pearl has got a look on her face that says she has just thought of a scheme that Howard nor you are going to like.
But the scariest has to be the looks on Nora and Ivy's faces. It seems they are genuinely pleased to see you and that is the scariest look of them all. :(

Since Ivy is holding a desert plate it could be possible they are smiling because Edie is not there to snatch the best desert away before the rest have a chance!

I noticed that on my last play through Edie is very quick on the deserts. Often swooping in from off camera to grab the prized desert. Also, that Ivy gets in quite a few digs at Nora and her hats over the years.

I think that this is the infamous cake offering in the Cafe when it was Nora who had first choice and it was a Cream Horn [which this looks like although Nora is holding something different in the shot] . Ivy had cunningly cut off the tip so when Nora picked it up she only got a small section from the narrow end and Ivy scoffed the bulk of it .

Captain Clutterbuck, the cake that Ivy has got is different. Ivy's looks like a roly poly of some sort with strawberries on top of it. The picture you've posted shows a much nicer treat. It makes my mouth water. :37:
