Kevin and The Senator are pulling a late night at the office and Kev stops by The Senator's office to tell him that he has decided not to kill The Times piece. He thinks Kitty deserves the piece and they can handle the fallout from her very public overshares. He thinks it is just about their marriage, not The Senator's campaign. If The Senator still wants to kill the piece, he'll have to do it himself. The Senator nods in agreement. I really hope Kevin gets a better storyline soon. He deserves more of a central role than this bullshit Jiminy Cricket conscience bit part he's been getting lately.
Rebecca has fled her father's apartment and is knee-deep in beer at a local dive. See, Ryan? That's how it's done! It's like she really is a Walker and he is just an impostor. David has somehow magically divined that this is where Rebecca would be hiding. It's like in the Simpsons episode where Marge is able to track Homer because Springfield kind of slopes downhill. She forgot her scarf, so David wanted to return. When she sees him she shoots him a dirty look and reminds him that she's a big girl who can take care of herself. She is being such a little snot that I can't really imagine David is sad he missed her tween years. She bitches about how she shouldn't have expected anything else from him. He's a man and men always fail her. It's like Eeyore meets Carrie Bradshaw. David confesses that he was the original offender. She reminds him that she asked him to leave but he counters that he took the easy out and he shouldn't have. And then he shouldn't have expected her to open up and share her problems with him. He just hasn't earned it. Really? Your estranged daughter just shows up on your doorstep 3,000 miles from where she's supposed to be and you're not allowed to ask her what's up? I gather no, because Rebecca smiles at his self-awareness. Idiot. And he's taking up chair space and half the screen, 'cause his head is actually kind of enormous. Maybe it's the camera angle. Maybe not. Anyway, Rebecca decides to run the whole Tommy Walker driving her mom out of the business past her photographer vagabond father.
