Saul stands in Nora's kitchen complaining about Holly's incredibly bad and blatantly biased corporate leadership skills. Nora is not paying attention and is harried and frantic as she tries to make a bottle for Evan. As Saul gripes about how Holly has Ryan and Rebecca pitted against each other in the surplus wine competition, Nora snaps. She begs Saul to talk about something, anything, else. She points out that she does not give a rat's patoot about Holly or the damn grapes. Evan wakes up at that point and Nora runs to him leaving Saul looking stunned. I can't believe the Walker phone tree hasn't kicked into play yet. How on earth is Nora keeping Kitty's secret? She can't keep any secret!
At her home, Kitty sits in a chair looking wrought and trying to get the words out about her diagnosis. The camera pulls back and we see that she is just practicing her speech on an empty chair. The front door opens and The Senator walks in looking aggravated. He throws his stuff down as Kitty explains that Evan is at her mom's. The Senator looks grateful and then faces Kitty and asks her to give it to him straight: How bad is it. Kitty is startled. Then she realizes that The Senator must have talked to Nora. The Senator says Nora is the one person he hasn't talked to today, but he needs Kitty to be straight with him because no one is telling him the truth. Kitty is completely confused at this point and is risking future Botox injections by wrinkling her brow. After a few more back and forths, Kitty realizes he is talking about the heart attack and is shocked that Kern leaked it. The Senator glares at her. This has been breaking news, it's all over the place, and she knew he was having a rough day and didn't even call him. She swears there is a good reason she didn't know and then, in a moment that will probably haunt him for the rest of his life and increase the price tag on all future birthday gifts, he barks at her: For someone who wants this marriage to work you're not showing it. He then leaves her alone to go take a phone call from a top donor. Leaving Kitty to look really really sad. Don't worry Kitty, as soon as you tell him your "I have cancer" punchline, he is going to feel like a total dick. Probably forever.
