  • Poor Blanche

    Unlike most Golden Girls episodes, I found this episode the saddest (probably of them all). It really started to get sad as the ending came along. Personally, when Blanche regret not going back home after Big Daddy called, it started to get sad there. But the argument with Virginia was the real start. I started to realize that it was all about family. The part that I found really grieving was when Blanche gave flowers to Big Daddy (on his casket) and started talking to him, and also when Blanche thought that, when Dorothy was calling Blanche to leave, Blanche thought it was Big Daddy. I almost cried when Blanche said "I'm nobody's little girl anymore." (Blanche and Dorothy were getting ready to leave.) The point is that this episode is sad, but it has a very good storyline and moral.
