Sarah is nursing her own hangover when Luc comes in to apologize for totally ruining the super fun party. He blames himself. If he had come when Sarah had asked him to, he could have put a stop to all the shenanigans. And there were a lot of shenanigans. Sarah says it's fine. She is pretty sure the party would have turned south (hell is south, right?) regardless of when he arrived. That said, she understands that he has mommy issues, but she doesn't understand why he can't talk to her about them. Luc takes off his coat and asks Sarah what she wants to know. Sarah oddly decides the most important thing to know is why Luc never told her his mother was a famous actress? Luc claims he never saw the film she was in because it was just another thing that was more important than him. She left him and his father when he was six, she came back, she left again. She destroyed his father, his family, and his heart. Sarah wisely says that Gabriella will never be the mother she should have been, but now it is up to Luc to decide whether he wants the mother he got. Sarah is so full of preternatural maternal wisdom for being hungover.
Gabriella is packed and ready to go. Nora swears she is not angry that Gabriella made out with her son. Justin was emitting that musky smell! Gabriella couldn't help herself! Heck, Nora could hardly help herself! Nora settles onto the stair next to Gabriella to share her theory: She and Gabriella were both scared of rejection and retreated to their safe places. For Nora, the kitchen; for Gabriella, the coffee table with a younger man. It is completely natural. Gabriella risks wrinkles and moans that she made Luc very angry. He is immune to her charms. Nora points out that you can't charm your son, you just have to be yourself. Gabriella thinks it is just too late.
