Kitty has driven all the way to Walker Manor to talk to her mom. It's like a solid hour and a half from Santa Barbara to Pasadena, you would think she would call first to make sure her mom was there. Oh these Walkers sure are wacky! Oh wait, I'm not allowed to mock Kitty this episode. I take it all back. Nora is so pleased to see Kitty. She begs her to go swimming with her, but when Kitty declines, Nora insists she drink some water instead. Nora extols her own skill at doing the most amazing things with water. She adds lemon AND cucumber. Man, if only Ruth Reichl knew that tip, Conde Nast would never have closed Gourmet. Kitty smiles and takes the cup of water. She tells Nora that she has an appointment -- a doctor's appointment. Nora asks if everything is okay and Kitty tries to pretend that everything is awesome with two exclamation points, but she fails really quickly. Sally Field is a master of the falling face and when Kitty says it's not all okay, Nora goes through all the stages of grief as her face falls from lemon-cucumber water to dying daughter in all of a second. Those Gidget producers sure knew what they were doing when they found her. Kitty is prattling about how she wanted to go to Sarah, but Sarah is in France (still), and Kevin is busy and Nora tells her to stop it and tell her what's wrong. So Kitty spills the whole story about going to the pediatrician and getting a blood test and then getting another test and being sent to an oncologist. At the word oncologist Nora's face falls even further, which I did not think was possible, but I am not an actor and certainly not one of Sally Field's skill and she can apparently sink her face lower than physically possible with the power of her mind alone at the mere thought of her daughter going to an oncologist for god's sake. Kitty sees her mom's face fall to inhuman depths and starts tearing up and begging her mom not to panic and then Kitty starts to panic and she starts talking about Evan and then I'm tearing up because how can you not when a new mom might have cancer and is talking about it to her mom? Nora snaps her out of the spiral long enough for Kitty to tell her that the doctor told her not to come to the appointment alone. Nora sprints for her purse.
