Nora calls Kitty and lends her support to the clinical trial. She is behind her 100% whatever she decides. And if Kitty decides to go to Boston, she will go with her and take care of the invisible Evan and they can sightsee if Kitty is up for it. Kitty scoffs and jokingly suggests that Rebecca and Justin could honeymoon there. At that Nora pauses, and then explains that the kids' plans are in flux right now. They just need time to adjust to Life with Cancer. Kitty is flummoxed, but thanks Nora for being supportive. Nora is also touched by her own supportiveness.
Holly surprises Saul with the news that Dennis York invited her to lunch. Taking a lesson from the inspiring business ethics of The Godfather, Holly has decided to keep her enemy close. At the restaurant, Saul surprises Dennis with the news that Holly is not coming. Saul wants to know what Dennis wants. Dennis wants his five years back, but since that is impossible in the current configuration of time and space and the limitations of contemporary science, he'll settle for a good investment. Saul snarls that William is dead and gone and any proprietary claims Dennis thinks he has on Ojai are as old and moldy as William. Dennis promises a little friendly competition, which sounds perfectly dreadful to have to watch, and Saul leaves with a threat to stay away from his family. Dennis promises to see him around. I loved The Wire (loved!) and I wish this guy would go film the movie and leave us in peace.
The Senator surprises Kitty by taking the afternoon off. He wants to take Evan to the zoo. Kitty looks at him suspiciously, but he swears that it's not the cancer that keeps him home, it's that there is nowhere else he'd rather be. Awwwwww. I love him! And his newly ruffled hair. I'd go Republican for him any day. Kitty smiles, but decides to test his resolve by telling him her decision about treatment protocol. She's going West Coast. He smiles supportively as she explains her logic. She further tests his resolve by adding that she thinks they should stay at Walker Manor while she gets her treatment. He swallows hard, blinks a few times, and then agrees. Kitty reminds him that he's not going to have every afternoon off, that invisible Evan will be taken care of, and that they will be well fed. The Senator agrees. It's up to her. Hey guys? Quick suggestion: why not have Nora come stay at your house? Just a thought! No charge. The Senator agrees so long as they can keep working on their marriage. Kitty smiles, like she is falling in love again, and reminds The Senator about how he didn't want his heart attack to define him and she swears that this will not define her. The Senator nods, he gets it.
