We saw Dakota recording her album, which wouldn't have happened during lockdown either. Seems a bit contradictory with Rome's movie getting shut down and Regina not being able to have customers inside though. But I don't remember the exact details of when things closed. A lot of things did not close down right away. I remember that where I live already had a shelter in place order but I was still seeing people in other states going to bars, eating at restaurants, and generally still going out and doing EVERYTHING for weeks. My mom lives in the same state but a different county (500 miles away) and they were not in lockdown yet so I had to tell her to stop going to her dance classes and other unnecessary gatherings. Things varied a lot depending on county leadership regarding what could still be open and at what capacity. Since this episode took place the day after Rome's movie got shut down, it's very early in the COVID situation in the United States. I'd guess that this week's episode took place almost exactly a year ago to the day. During last week's episode one of the stories on the tv in the background was about basketball being cancelled, which happened on March 11. According to this Boston Eater article, all restaurants in Massachusetts had to shut down dine-in service beginning March 17 (two days earlier, the mayor of Boston said restaurants had to reduce dining capacity to 50%) but many restaurants had already voluntarily switched to take out only. The governor's announcement also banned gatherings of more than 25 people and closed schools, so I assumed that this episode took place before that happened since we haven't yet heard about Sophie, Danny, and Theo being home from school yet. 1 Link to comment
