Louisa ducks into Harvey's room, and finds Harvey there, which is not always the case, so she's lucky. "Harvey, did you know that I'm half black?" "Am I your father?" Heh. How awesome would it be if she said yes? But, no, she gives a speech about being a mulatto, and growing up with friends of both races, and how, even knowing her parents, she had a difficult time with identity. "Imagine how difficult it must have been for your son..." She points out that, even at sixty years old, Pester is clearly not resigned to never knowing Harvey. "They say that one of the first things that happens to people when they have kids is they become less selfish. Harvey, you have a son."
Winslow High by night. Harvey gazes sadly out his window. Marla comes in, and pesters him about hanging out alone at school when he could go be with his new family instead. He tells her he doesn't have to listen to her, because she takes drugs, and to leave him alone. "That's gonna be on your gravestone. Leave me alone." But when she's gone, off to a meeting with Guber, he looks pensive.
On his way out of school for the night, Harry passes Ronnie, who is also there for a meeting with Guber. Ah yes. The task force. I'd almost forgotten. This show clings to continuity in the weirdest ways, while eschewing it in all others. Scott comes out of his office with Dana Poole, who apparently has just finished interviewing him, even though it's night (she's Slow-lita all around, isn't she?). Ronnie and Marla head into Scott's office for their meeting. Harry and Dana are left alone. "We need to talk," he says. As long as we don't have to watch.
Thankfully, we follow Ronnie and Marla into Scott's office. They report that there is some unfairness going on, that it's not blatant, but that teachers perhaps do a little test coaching (spurred by the extra pay they get for tutoring in the first place), and that they might also favor the students they tutor. Marla says, "But who are we kidding, Scott? The grading system here is all over the place. You'd have a better chance at fairness going to the Olympics. As a figure skater." Scott says, "Heh." But I don't. That joke's not funny anymore. Which is what you get for taking a month-long hiatus. Long story short, Ronnie and Marla both agree that it's a problem.
The Dungeon. Harry is apologizing to Dana for some reason. He says that he is still upset about what happened, and that, "while I maintain that you kissed me, I certainly didn't fail to let it happen." Hey, by the way, that clip of them kissing in the "previously" section? That never actually aired, right? I mean, we never really saw them kiss in the pilot, am I correct? Anyway, Dana is impressed by the use of a clever double-negative to abdicate responsibility while pretending to take it. But Harry turns the tables, and notes that she could have picked any one of thousands of teachers, but she picked him. She says, "I guess I just wanted you to see me. And be proud of me. I mean, the last time you saw me, I was in a strip joint." Oh, yes. When we learned that she was also Po'-lita. Now I remember. Harry says that she can't locate her self-esteem through his eyes, and I'm not sure what he means by "locate" in this case. "I'd call that profound advice, Harry, if you'd given it to me three years ago. But you didn't. You enjoyed that power. You nurtured my infatuation. I've had therapy. My therapist has a few things to say about you." Oh, I am so sick of her. Go away, Slow-lita. But, anyway, her therapist apparently theorized that Harry was as attracted to Dana as she was to him, but couldn't act on it, so tacitly encouraged Dana to do so. Smart therapist, but still: shut up, Slow-lita.
