I don't imagine Libby had much free time if she was working at the Lying-In Hospital -- working hours were very long in those days. Goo Goo must have helped to care for those babies, or they wouldn't have survived even as long as they did. 

John almost breaks it off with Violet. She should let him go -- she'd be better off searching for someone new than marrying someone who isn't fully on board. But then I kind of feel Sara deserves someone better too. 

I wonder how many kids played the dangerous game of trying to be like Houdini back in the day.

Now that it's the Vanderbilt baby, the NYPD is actually taking Libby's activities seriously.

I find Violet annoying, but she's in a pretty crap situation. She needs John (or someone like John) to make her a legitimate part of society. It's got to be frustrating to be this close to legitimacy and suddenly have worry about losing it.

Having said that, I'm not sure what John is thinking in terms of trying to keep journalistic integrity while marrying into the Hearst family. Or even what the appeal to Violet is to him. Even in the beginning, he doesn't seem really smitten by V so I'm not sure how that whole romance came to be.
