Nora, Saul, and Justin are now working on the seating arrangements, which is weird because didn't Sarah and Luc work on that just last week? I guess it takes a village to properly separate the Walkers from the Holdens from the Laurents. When Justin starts reminiscing about how it seems like just a few years ago that he and his brothers and sisters were populating the kids' table at these events, Saul uses it as a segue to talk about Brody. Which is awkward, but I guess it had to be done so that Justin could throw in his two cents, which are: Nora should be with Brody if she loves him. Thank you, Justin, for being a reasonable human being and for siding with your mother's happiness for once. That said, this is kind of all your fault, so it's probably just your guilt talking. Nora tells them that she just can't do it to Sarah, and they don't get that because they don't have children. Saul reminds her that while they don't have kids, they have both been in love and they know love is all you need and that's the way love goes and love me tender and p.s. I love you and I want to know what love is and I want you to want me and all those other cornball love songs.
Nora looks wistful for a moment and sighs that once upon a time it could have all been so simple and then before you know it we are in a flashback. A young Nora Holden is paying a visit to a young Nicholas Brody back in 1965 or so. Okay, hold up, I know it's hard to cast younger versions of actors, but really? They couldn't find a young man who wasn't a red head to play young Brody? I mean, Brody is definitely not a redhead now and so he probably also wasn't a redhead when he was 19. So I guess William and Nora were super lucky that Sarah wasn't the proverbial redheaded stepchild, eh?
