Kevin has made a break for it. He carved a tunnel through the walls of Walker Manor (hiding the hole with his Shaun Cassidy poster), tied his 600 thread-count sheets into a rope, and shimmied down one handed, fought off the dogs, dodged the lights, and made his way to Justin who is sitting alone in his jeep listening to his iPod. Which in my mind just reinforces the Justin-as-listless-teenager image. He's probably listening to the Jonas Brothers. Kevin bangs on the Jeep door to get his attention, hurriedly gets in the car and begs Justin to drive. Justin understands the need for escape, but isn't totally down with the idea of driving his very-recently released from the hospital brother to parts unknown. And why is Kevin ditching Scotty? Why doesn't he just tell Scotty to take him home and they can both be away from Nora's over-the-top ministrations? How pissed would you be if your husband ditched you? With your mother-in-law? Cripes, that's grounds for divorce in 47-states. (It's grounds for justifiable homicide in the others.) When Justin realizes that Kevin has not only failed to turn on the shower (and thus cover his escape), but also forgot to bring his pills, Justin curses Kevin and runs back to the house. Using all the tactical skills he picked up in Iraq, Justin scours Kevin's bathroom for pills. Nada. He turns on the shower just in time to prevent a Scotty incursion. As he surveys Kevin's room for the missing pills while simultaneously having a conversation with Scotty, things get dicey. Luckily he was well trained in the art of misdirection and pretends he was looking for a... trumpet. He tells Scotty that Kevin needs some alone time in the shower and heads downstairs to look for the pills. He spies them on Kevin's lunch tray, but just as he is about to grab them, Nora comes in. Curses! Justin fends her off with a wily use of gossip (Saul's mystery boyfriend) and finally escapes the house. Just like Basra, eh, soldier? Meanwhile, Kevin falls asleep in the Jeep and we have yet another dream sequence. Sigh. In this one he's pregnant! Justin makes it back to the car and starts it up to go go go, but Kevin wants to know where the other pills are. Justin just brought the antibiotics. Justin refuses to go back for the pain pills and unless Kevin wants to go in the house he will just have to deal. At least he won't go septic! Which I am sure will be great comfort for him when is trying not to writhe in pain in about an hour. Justin should really just go score something for him. It's only fitting. Besides, then they can have another intervention!
