  1. Think about it: why does Rose have to be a valedictory turn for the Big Ladies, an implausible dragon-lady of 50, 60, who knows how old?

A febrile, deluded fast Rose, charismatic, charming, and deeply, deeply damaged (the way that the Hovick girls' actually Momma seems to have been). This could have been a performance for the ages, once upon a time...
