Before Brook's incarceration[]

Mrs Soso makes her only appearance in Brook's flashback in Season Three. When Brook is eight years old, she lives with her mother. She is seen playing "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg on piano. Her mother interrupts after Brook makes a mistake in the piece. Mrs Soso calls her daughter a cheat, and asks Brook where cheats go. Brook responds with "Hell?". Mrs Soso is shocked and asks where she heard that. Brook reveals that at her friend's house she watched television and heard it on The 700 Club. Mrs Soso tells Brook never to do so again and leaves ("Trust No Bitch").

Memorable Quotes[]
