Sophia starts to forget important memories and Dorothy trying to help takes her to Brooklyn.


Sophia starts to have memory troubles which becomes more notable when she forgets her Wedding Anniversary and the tradition that Dorothy has her do every year since Sal's death.

Thankfully once Sophia confronts the truth after realizing she can't remember if Sal carved a Love heart in their apartment's kitchen as Dorothy doesn't know of it, she sees a doctor it turns out her problem is diet related and so is treatable. To try and help Sophia's memory, Dorothy takes Sophia to their old apartment in Brooklyn, they go and the tenant gives them a little time there, the place is untouched which gives Sophia hope that Sal's carving is still there in the kitchen cupboard but it isn’t, yet the children's height measurements are still there and Dorothy helps Sophia remember the day they brought Phil home. Sophia then goes upstairs to the bedroom, she takes a photograph of Sal out of her purse and Sal's ghost appears and Sophia tells him that she is upset that she might be losing every memory but Sal reminds her she is a strong person and she will fight it before he leaves. Dorothy then tells Sophia they will have to leave but as the tenant opens the closet there is the carving Sal did, Sophia remembers that Sal hung Salami in there and with this luck Sophia hopes to recover everything from the past.
