Blanche has taken to her bedroom and has refused to come out. When she finally does, she reveals that she’s pregnant. She’s devastated, she doesn’t want to be a mother again at her age. But she took the test, and it was positive. Meanwhile, the other girls decide to get in on the mink breeding business. They’re having absolutely no luck and can’t figure out why.
Blanche later finds out that she’s not pregnant at all. In her eyes, it’s much worse. It’s menopause. Blanche associates menopause with a loss of attractiveness and a sign that she can no longer avoid, that she’s getting older. She consults a psychiatrist and resumes back into her depression. But she eventually snaps out of it and returns back to her more cheerful self.
