An Illegitimate Concern (#5.18)
15 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One day a young man stands at their door asking for Blanche's deceased husband. He claims to sell encyclopedias but later he comes back saying that he is his son and wants to know more about his father. Blanche is devastated but later decides that she should accept it and tells the young man more about his dad. And Dorothy and Sophia participate in the Shady Pines Mother/Daughter Beauty contest.

Poor Blanche, her stories always seem to be so upsetting. But once again the show takes a sad situation and makes a beautiful story with great characters while sending positive messages.

And the beauty contest was a fun addition. Especially seeing the two dressed up as Sonny and Cher singing.
