  • Poor Kitty!

    In this episode of Brothers and Sisters, the following happens. We open this episode knowing that Kitty is alive, but she is gravely ill. The chemo isn't working and so they try and find a bone marrow donor, in order to save her life. The only problem s, that after all of her sibling have been tested none of them are a match. And so Ryan is tested and luckily he is a match. As the episode ends, we see that the transplant worked and that Kitty is now in remission. Overall this was a heartbreaking episode, but a good outcome. When we saw Kitty holding Evan for possibly the last time, it broke my heart.moreless
