At the never-ending wine auction (sometimes the timelines on this show really bother me, like we're supposed to believe that Kitty has had her doctor's appointment, researched with Nora, and gone dress shopping while Saul and Holly just sat in their seats?), Saul and Holly prepare to bid on their grape slurry. Holly is about to score the wine at a great grape rate when Dennis York shoots the bidding up to $6 bucks. Holly couldn't go over $5.25. After losing out on the lot, Holly turns to Saul demanding to know who the hell is Dennis York and why the hell is he submarining her?
Kevin and his BlackBerry are in a café waiting for Travis for some reason. Are they friends now? I thought Kevin was pretending he was nothing like Travis and thus distancing himself as much as possible from The Argyled One? As Travis comes in, Kevin tells him that he already called the State Department and he is totally right and The Senator wins. Travis shrugs off the jab; he's here about Kitty. He tells Kevin he's sorry and asks if they are going to do a press conference. Kevin has no idea what he's talking about, but Travis takes his "Huh?" as dissembling and assures Kevin that they know, but not to worry because the whole campaign has been instructed to be hands off. Kevin still doesn't know what Travis is talking about and Travis rolls his eyes and spells it out for him. They know about Kitty and obviously a candidate's wife having cancer...Kevin's look stops him. Travis slowly realizes that Kevin really doesn't know. As Travis takes a moment to pry his oversized foot out of his mouth, I will take the opportunity to say: There are medical privacy laws, right? So why isn't anyone SUING THE PANTS OFF THE KERN CAMPAIGN. I mean, twice now they have gotten their hands on private medical records. THEY MUST BE STOPPED. Instead of threatening to sue (or maybe he does off camera), Kevin does not pass 'go', but ditches Travis and heads directly to Kitty's house. He bangs on the door and when Kitty lets him in, he pushes past her and is practically jumping up and down in anger that Travis would try and convince him that she was sick. Like, what a low blow, right? Kitty nods and puts on her thinking cap, because she knows Kern's campaign is going to try and spin this so The Senator can't run for governor. Kevin stops jumping and stares at her. He takes a breath and asks her haltingly if it's true. Kitty realizes her error and starts rubbing her head frantically and walking in circles and doesn't say anything to Kevin, but starts muttering about having to figure this out. Poor Kevin is just standing there completely stunned. He starts to tear up and begs her to talk to him. He sits next to her on the couch where she has landed and tries to get out a string of questions like what and where and how. He is too choked up to talk and Kitty is stuck in this weird robot mode and can't seem to actually react to what Kevin is saying. Robo-Kitty decides out of the blue to ask Nora to throw a dinner party so she can tell everyone at once. Kevin sits next to her on the couch with tears in his eyes and just hugs her. Weird Robo-Kitty pats Kevin on the back and says it will be okay.
