Not Another Monday (#5.7)
13 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After a friend's funeral, Sophia's friend Martha wants to commit suicide to stop the suffering and asks Sophia to come over to hold her hand. Sophia is very upset, but she still goes because she doesn't want Martha to be alone. Luckily she manages to convince her to continue living. And the other girls are baby sitting.

A strong episode. The moments between Sophia and Martha are wonderful. So much feeling. I am glad how it went through and they let us thing about the suicide between elderly, there is a pretty huge number which is sad.

But we also had some fun moments. Besides Sophia being lifted to the chair, there were a lot with the baby Especially when Dorothy tells Blanche that the baby doesn't fit her shoes.
