Meanwhile, the girls drive to Atlanta with Blanche to see her grammy's plantation house one more time. After Blanche shows them the house, she handcuffs herself to a radiator, refusing to leave even though the demolition crew is ready to blast the house. The girls try in vain to persuade her to leave, but she refuses. Finally, Sophia shares with Blanche her own experience and that she was told that it wasn't her time – that she still had more life to live.
Blanche returns to Miami with the girls with a changed attitude, and Dorothy finally believes Sophia's tale of her near-death saga when Sophia calls her by a nickname that only Sal knew.
