So watching with a friend and catching up. "Did they just call the upscale store "Pebelle's"? Poubelle is the French word for garbage." (Poubelle was a lawyer and diplomat who introduced garbage cans to Paris and made their use compulsory.)
Anna's explanation for the RA marker is epigenesis, a change in the DNA caused by a life event, usually a trauma. An example is that the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. Anna is suggesting that Alex may have had an epigenetic change in her DNA. There are two problems with this logic: 1. that if it can develop spontaneously, Peter could have developed it himself and 2. markers are not epigenetic.
Brooklyn is like a 5 year old child -- she acts in the moment and wants immediately. She signed the recording contract without checking it out, she wanted Ned to save her and when he didn't she sold her shares without finding out who was buying them. She justifies everything by it always being the other person's fault.
Kim Delaney has a strange way of clenching her teeth when she talks, as if she has a bit between them.
Brando meets with Cyrus who offers him a job ... and then he goes straight to Sonny's to tell him. I wish Cyrus were smart enough to have had Brando tailed, both sides of this mob war are too stupid to live.
She said it was too soon and Sonny was just starting to grieve. She might be right in that.
Then she added that the tests are not predictive and anyway there was nothing Dante or any other of Sonny's children could do other than live a healthy lifestyle. That's less true; there are a number of other things that can mitigate the damage such as learning new skills but the best way to ward off the effects of AD is to be fluently bilingual. Time to start learning a second language, Sonny. That speech of Carly's had a lot of nonsense in it but I'm sure it hit the shippers' hearts..
And maybe by the time Donna is an adult, we'll have figured out what causes AD and have drugs to mitigate it.
