Walker Manse. Justin's house of pain. He's clearly in much more pain than he'd been in before. Nora walks in and once again begs him to take the drugs. "Don't you think I want to?" Justin asks. But he says he's lucky. "My friends are dying over there, Mom. I got off easy." Nora correctly recognizes this as self-punishment for no good goddamn reason at all. By the way, know that my exasperation with Justin the character doesn't mean I don't like the storyline. It's affecting and brilliantly acted as always on this show. Justin finally admits that he doesn't know whether he's punishing himself or protecting himself or what. His increasingly unbearable pain is quickly making it hard for him to remember why he's being so obstinate, and finally he asks Nora to fill the prescription for him. Nora's like, "I already called it in, I just need to go pick it up." God love her.
Kevin has returned to Chez Priceypants, where the dinner rush is now in full swing and much as Scotty would love to talk to him, he's far too busy. Kevin gets him to shut up and stand still long enough to give a speech about how they were never really friends, "just lovers, and then fighters," and since the only gay friends he has are his sisters (hee), he wonders if he and Scotty and try friendship out and see how that works. Scotty's like, "Sounds great, man, but this plate in my hand needs to be in front of David Beckham's face before I get fired, but I will definitely call you later." Kevin smiles at this, though it's unclear if it's about Scotty or he's just gone into a Beckham fugue.
Kitty and Courtney are now having their gold medal match in the Awkward Olympics. Courtney's noticeably not angry or bitter or snide to Kitty. Maybe I'm crazy, but I really feel for her. It makes me curious to find out exactly how the McCallister marriage ended, because the way he tells it it was because she cheated, but the way she tells it, he was the one who ended up abandoning her first. She seems very seriously wounded about having given up her own life to support his and now she has nothing to show for it. Kitty, kind of awesomely, could give a shit. She just wants Courtney to know that she found "Brigid," the nanny, and she's prepared to go public with the fact that she and Robert never did anything. She gets up to leave, all "Ya burnt!" but Courtney has one last warning/piece of advice: "You think you're his partner? Nobody's his partner. He does it all alone." Kitty gives her a pitying look, but I bet that starts to sink in pretty soon.
