    • Episode Title: Weeping Willows

      The title of this episode is a reference to Catherine and her past. The willow tree is know for its ability to withstand strong storms because it can bend.

      Adam Novak: No way you were never married. Oh, let me guess. You were young, he seemed more mature than he really was, he swept you off your feet, and uh, he let you fall.
      Catherine: Bruised, but not broken.

      The second allusion is based on the use of the weeping willow in literature to represent sadness, loss and grief, along with the opportunity for new growth.
