Well, it's important to keep in mind that G's note is a script review - the almost-final "final" rev of the teleplay he was responding to contained at least one kiss that was omitted from the episode as ultimately televised (and is therefore not in the story). The B&tB writers are forever doing that - got to keep the target demo happy, after all. With a bit of consideration, I bet the sharp-eyed viewer can even guess what scene it was in! :)

In fairness to the writers, most of the kisses that finally aired did actually happen (including all of the "incidental" ones, i.e., on the cheek, forehead etc.); G's recommendations chiefly (as it were) involved the omissions of gratuitous snogs and one incongruously patronizing gesture (finger-to-lips for "say no more" - anyone not Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke who attempts to do that to Mio had best be prepared to duck).
