A Jewish holiday is upon them and so family is coming for dinner. However, when Aunt Sylvia (Carol Kane) arrives, it's obvious she's NOT a typical 50s housewife. She is clearly a free spirit...sort of a beatnik who loves beat poetry and wants more out of life. So, when she announces that she's getting a divorce, it's not a huge surprise....but Sophie has a very hard time accepting it. In her world NO ONE gets a divorce and being happy isn't a major concern. How is all this going to play out for the Bergers?
This is NOT a fun or funny episode. This is NOT a complaint...many wonderful episodes from the series focused more on characters and life problems. However, it does have some powerful moments....especially when Grandpa makes his speech at the dinner table. Well worth seeing.
