In Dinah and Mallets’ room, Dinah asks Mallet if she is insecure to be ticked off about Harley’s article. Mallet takes a look at the article, summarizing it. He mentions the entire article about Harley and that Blake is running for Mayor and how she talks about Ross’ children, he says he’d be mad too. Dinah says she wasn’t talking about Blake’s article, she hadn’t seen that one, but she’s angry she didn’t rate a mention in either one. Dinah says she’s invisible and afterthought, Mallet says she’s not to him. Dinah thinks she’s going crazy, and reminds him of the other night when he confessed about Harley. He says its history, not a headline. She asks if he loves having two women who want him, he says he doesn’t want one of the women and the other one is more than he can handle. Dinah agrees.

Lizzie says he will soon and that she stole Ava’s room key from Buzz and plans to break in and look around. Jon says it’s a bad idea. Lizzie doesn’t want to hear it, he tells her to get Coop back the way to do it is to get rid of Coop, not Ava.
At the farm, Cassie can’t believe Tammy wants her to invite Jon out to the farm for dinner.

Lizzie says dinner with the family is so sweet sarcastically.

They sit in the living room eating chips and salsa and drinking beer. Later at dinner, Tammy is telling a story about Jon, and Jon seems to want to provoke a fight. He comments that Billie doesn’t judge people. They talk about the bar, and Jon says he never thought he’d be as settled as he is. Josh says he can understand, Cassie says that Josh must have always known what he wanted to do. He disagrees and says he disappointed a lot of people with his choices, especially his father. Jonathan says at least Josh had his millions to fall back on and Tammy kicks him under the table and gives him a look. Josh says it was a blessing and a curse, and that everything comes with a price.

They tell her about the scholarship and Lizzie embraces him, happily.

She says that Ava’s clearly more secure than she is, and Ava says “clearly.”
