Capt. Michaels calls the house, probably hoping he's just late enough to have interrupted any hanky-panky because that's what turns Capt. Michaels on these days, and asks Lucy if everything's been cleared up. She says it has. He asks if Kevin apologized for him, since he made everything worse even though he was just trying to help. Ah, but isn't that always the Camden way? Capt. Michaels apologizes in person and bids Lucy good night. "Good night," says Lucy, forgetting to thank Capt. Michaels for filling ten minutes of screen time.
RevCam and Martin hang out against his car. Brilliant decision, writers, to have the scene where RevCam drives up and Martin tearfully runs over to him and cries on his shoulder take place off-camera, because that kind of scene, when written and performed well, could have actually been moving. Guess we'll have to settle for a monologue from Martin about how tough it is to be a soldier's kid. RevCam interrupts to talk about himself, and how The Colonel is a "casualty assistance officer," and I was waiting for RevCam to mention how he, too, had a military father so he knows how Martin feels. Except he doesn't, he just says that his dad had to knock on a lot of doors, and that RevCam, too, sometimes has to deliver bad news as part of his job. "It's an awful job," RevCam says, like, boo freaking hoo. RevCam tells Martin that he is an adult in a lot of respects, so he can go comfort Martha without RevCam's help. Only RevCam could twist Martin's previous statement about being an adult around to get himself out of difficult work. But Martin says he can do it, and thanks RevCam for stopping by. The Bad News Officers leave the house. Martin tells RevCam his cell phone number, and you know that inside, RevCam's all "oh my GAWD! I got his PHONE NUMBER!!!" RevCam tells Martin that they won't be waiting up for him tonight, and he can spend however long he needs to with Martha. Then he pats the back of Martin's neck and leaves. It's a sweet gesture until you realize that whenever Martin does return to the CamPound, there's going to be a note waiting for him informing him of his new rent rates that he should be able to afford with his dead mom's money.
