Saul hauls Tommy over to his house for an earful of ranting and a trip on the size 10 express. Saul reminds Tommy that he told him this was a quasi-illegal transaction and generally a bad idea, but Tommy isn't listening: he wants to know what Holly was doing at Saul's house and what he told her. Saul admits that he covered for Tommy, but he is regretting it more and more by the minute as Tommy hollers at him. What is with all the misplaced yelling, Walkers? Justin shouldn't be yelling at Rebecca if he wants her back, and Tommy shouldn't be squawking like a caffeinated hyena at Saul if he wants him on his side. Saul then asks the real question: Where did Tommy get the money for this deal? Tommy's hackles go up and he flat out tells Saul that his dad borrowed money from the pension fund and sometimes you have to bend the rules. Saul looks really sad as he reminds Tommy that when it comes to financial fraud, no, no you don't have to bend the rules. Tommy starts shrieking about how this is "their" business and tries to justify his actions. He did it for the family and he is not sorry. Besides, it is too late. The deal is done. Saul doesn't correct the misconception, and Tommy doesn't deserve him to. What a chucklehead.
The Senator finds Kitty sitting on the patio (veranda? I don't know what they call it in California). She looks tense and skeptical with her arms crossed as he sits down and starts his apology. He is sorry that he didn't confide in her, but he was scared she would say no and what she says means more to him than anything. She still looks skeptical, but is softening. How could she not? Rob Lowe's pretty blue eyes staring at you, begging you to forgive him? She's pudding cake. He tells her that if he has to choose, he would choose her. Put a fork in her, she's done. Kitty smiles broadly and tells him to carpe public office. He promises to work around her schedule and do whatever he has to do to make it work. Kitty apologizes about the article and The Senator smiles, but ignores her apology.
