Erica is shocked to see Jack return from his all night boating trip that he’d gone on without telling her and that he had taken Brooke with him. She tells him that she was terribly worried all night about him. She wondered if he was alright or if he’d been killed or abducted and to see him there, now, with Brooke, she knows she really has something to worry about. She walks off. Brooke asks Jack if he thinks that he should have checked in with his wife at some point during the time they were together. He replies to her that frankly, he does not think he should have had to.
Lily and Jonathan enter a music store. She has ear muffs over her ears because she
cannot take loud noises. He talks about
getting the job at the Chicken shack. Unbeknownst
to them, the perv she met in
Ryan goes to Aidan’s office and inquires
what could have happened between him and Erin.
He tells Aidan that he just does not understand seeing his sister in
tears telling him that she and Aidan were through. Aidan admits that he does not have a clue
either. Ryan tells Aidan that he loves
his sister. Aidan tells Ryan he loves
her too. Right outside the door,
Babe catches JR and Jamie together right beside the flower bed where Greg is buried. She tells her husband that after all they have been through together she believes that he owes her an explanation as to what is up.
In court, the judge makes his rulings on
what will be done with Zach. He tells
Zach that he could see him as a hero for doing what he did in order to protect
his wife. However, he believes that
Zach’s behavior was reckless and arrogant and he has only one choice on how to
rule. Hearing that,
Aidan explains to Ryan that
Terry/Thomas McDermott is still spying on Lily and Jonathan from outside the window of the record store.
Erica sits alone with Brooke and asks what Brooke intends to do with her husband. Brooke explains to Erica that they had a mechanical failure and could not land the boat. Nothing happened between her and Jack. Erica reminds Brooke that she looks desperate. She knows that Brooke always takes Erica’s men after Erica is done with them. Jack appears and indicates that his reason for spending the night with Brooke had nothing to do with the failure to get the boat back to shore. He tells Erica to tell Brooke what the real issue between them is.
JR and Jamie tell Babe that she is overreacting but she tells them she knows that they are putting themselves in danger. It may be none of her business what Jamie does but she needs to know what her child’s father is risking, if nothing else, for their son. She tells them both that they are playing some sort of Russian roulette. She tells them that she will go and confront “the situation” herself. They both tell her that they don’t want her putting herself in danger. She somehow knows that they’ve done something and tells them it’s good, at least, that they have kept themselves anonymous.
Erica asks Jack how he could have taken “that woman” out on their boat that she gave him as a wedding present. He tells her that he believes that since it’s his boat, it’s his call. She asks him how selfish he can be. He tells her just in case she’d like to know, what is going on between them has nothing to do with Brooke. She asks him if he really believes that their relationship is in trouble. He confirms that yes, it is.
Babe goes to a warehouse and opens the door to what looks to be a freezer room. It’s a meat storage room. She hears screaming and discovers Josh strung up by a rope, hanging from the ceiling. She gets inside and attempts to cut him down. He tells her that he knows her husband and brother-in-law locked him in there and strung him up to meat hook. He tells her that both JR and Jamie are trash. After hearing him speak ill of her husband, she looks to be changing her mind about getting him out of there. He asks her where she is going. She tells him that she has changed her mind and believes that a meat head like him belongs in a place like this.
Lily and Jonathan meet the store manager. He asks her what is with the ear muffs since it is 100 degrees outside. She clarifies the exact numerical Fahrenheit figure. They introduce themselves to the manager and Lily goes into all of the technical details in her usual “off beat” style of conversation. He asks them if they plan to buy anything. She gives him some very technical tips on how to alphabetize his CDs. He doesn’t seem very interested and just says: “cool”. Hearing that, she asks him if he is using the word “cool” the way her brother Reggie does. If he’s saying it that way, then she will say: “Right back at ya.” But if he’s talking about the temperature, she believes it’s neither too cool nor too hot in the store. Jonathan explains to the store manager that Lily knows all the facts and details. He looks at them unenthused and asks if they are there to do survey research or what is up.
After the court is adjourned and Kendall
and Zach are alone in the empty court room, she jokes about how the judge
called him reckless and arrogant. He
tells her that he must have ruled in their favor because he like Zach’s pretty
wife. They go outside to see Derek and
Livia outside the court room. Derek
tells them that he knows that the judge must have been bribed to rule in Zach’s
favor and he tells them they have been had.
Lily tells the store manager that she and Jonathan would like a job. She responds to the job application asking her about her previous work experience by going into the technical history of where and when she might have been “employed.” She gets to the question about whether someone has been convicted of a felony and informs the store manager that Jonathan was a serial killer in the past. She tells him that that was when he had a brain tumor but since they got rid of the “bad stuff,” he was acquitted. Hearing that, the store manager believes they must be pulling his chain, by the way they are talking and tells them if they want to join a comedy club, they need to go elsewhere. He has a business to run. She tells him she does not want to join a comedy club. She does not know how to be funny. She and Jonathan just need to get jobs.
In response to Aidan’s accusation that she
is keeping a secret,
After Lily and Jonathan complete their application and she keeps talking in a way that the store manager does not understand, he tells them he will have to pass. He has enough weird people in his store all ready. He doesn’t want or need to hire any “mu-tards.” Jonathan, who is fully functional, demands to know what he just called them and gets in his face. Lily clarifies to him that there is no such thing as a “mu-tard.” She has autism spectrum disorder and her husband had a brain tumor. She tells him that he is just plain rude. She goes out the door and Jonathan confronts him. Alone with the guy, Jonathan tells him he’s a jackass. The guy asks him what he just said. Jonathan then plays the simpleton again and tells him he has no right to talk that way to Jonathan’s wife.
Jack admits to Erica that he’s been so damn furious. There have been so many secrets and he does not know how he’s going to get past it. She tells him he will get past it. He admits that he does not know whether he can or not but is nowhere near ready to throw in the towel and give up on their marriage. He asks her if she is willing to keep working on their marriage and she admits to him that she is also nowhere near ready to give up on them.
Aidan and Erin lie on her bed, roll around and kiss passionately. She pulls away and tells him she meant what she said. She wants to end it. He demands that she tell him what is going on. She tells him that she has told him everything she can possibly tell him and she demands that he leave. He goes out the door.
Outside the music store, Jonathan concludes to Lily that that guy was a jerk and they need not worry about him. They can get much better jobs. Terry/Thomas McDermott goes into the store, unseen by them, takes their crumpled application that the manager threw in the trash and puts it in his pocket. It would probably have all of Lily’s and Jonathan’s information.
After Babe leaves JR and Jamie alone and goes to find Josh, Jamie tells JR that maybe he should just let Jamie handle this situation. It might get JR into terrible trouble and cause him to lose Babe. JR tells his brother there is no way he’s going to lose Babe.
At the frozen meat warehouse, Babe tells Josh that she is really tired of him continually trashing her husband and brother-in-law. He protests that JR and Jamie have really ticked him off. She then tells him he needs to get out of there and get out of her face. He leaves and goes out the door. She throws a can at the door as the door closes locking her inside the freezer.
