Tommy and Julia's, where Julia and her parents are talking about people they know and excluding Tommy. Ben mentions someone who's an architect, and Tommy tries to get a foot in the conversational door by saying that architecture is a tough job. "Yeah, it's even tougher when you don't have Daddy's money to get you started," Ben says. Asshole! Julia doesn't say anything. Her parents ask why she never went into architecture. She says she always wanted to be a dancer, and Ben makes a joke about her two left feet. This gets them all laughing, and Tommy, completely on the outside looking in, says it's nice to hear her laugh again. Ben drinks to that and backhandedly compliments Tommy on the wine they're drinking. It's tense, as Tommy defends his lack of vineyard experience by saying he works hard. Beth makes the save by asking Julia if they could take Lizzy on an excursion tomorrow. Ben says he and Tommy should do something tomorrow as well. Tommy's mouth says "Sure," but his face says, "One of us is ending up dead by noon, old man."
Walker Manse. Nora, Rebecca, and Justin have just finished dinner, and Justin gets up to try and hobble his way around the kitchen to do the dishes. "When you're off the crutches, you can do the dishes," Nora says. "Not that you've ever done them before." See? Nora feels me on this, even if she's not outright saying it. She sends her martyr of a son off to go lie down, then tries to get agreement from Rebecca about how bad this is for Justin. Rebecca, because she's young and dumb and idolizes Justin, thinks he's being "brave" by going it without the drugs. "He's not being brave, he's being pigheaded," Nora says, entirely correctly. She's also correct when she says that the choices Justin makes regarding his physical rehab in the next few weeks will affect the rest of his life, and not taking the painkillers now could have serious, painful, and long-lasting consequences. "Have you tried telling him this?" Rebecca asks, before taking one look at Nora and, kind of condescendingly, saying, "Of course you have; you're you." Can't have it both ways, hon. Either Nora's wrong for not talking to Justin about it or wrong for talking to him about it, but not both. Nora finally begs Rebecca to talk to him on her behalf. Rebecca says she doesn't feel comfortable convincing Justin to take drugs, but Nora says she's her last option. Oh, and she also asks her what the weather's like up there on her high horse. Rebecca finally deigns to try, not like she won't try to guilt-trip Nora about it later (Spoiler!).
