Family Affair (#2.7)
14 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose's daughter Bridget and Dorothy's son Michael come for a visit. They are both very different but Blanche decides to hook them up and gives them tickets for a symphony. They end up together in bed which really upsets their mothers and they have big fight with each other and Blanche.

Don't really get the story. Sure, moms treat their kids as children no matter what age they are, but this was a bit of an exaggeration I think. And the things they said about each other kids was kind of nasty for their personalities.

But the scene when they find them in bed was kind of funny. Especially Rose being upset that they are naked! Just as Sophia in her mourning dress.
