If there was a nursing home that could ever have been compared to one of Dante’s Circles of Hell, Shady Pines would have been it! Sophia was never shy about talking about what an absolute miserable experience living at Shady Pines truly was. Sophia only got to leave because the home burned down one night; though it was later rebuilt. But Sophia was determined never to return there under any circumstances. But that wouldn’t stop Dorothy from occasionally using the threat of sending her back there to get Sophia to stop acting up.

In this quiz, we’ll ask about the nursing home that makes the Bates Motel look like the Beverly Hilton. When you’ve finished, don’t forget to let us know how you did. Or it’s off to Shady Pines for you!!
