Henry walks into the auditorium looking for Jen. She's idly glancing around, and then catches a glimpse of him over her shoulder and hisses his name to flag him down. He tells her he thought they were going to meet out front. Sounding guilty, she says that she thought whoever got there first was supposed to save seats, so she did. She sort of bites her tongue as if bracing for a fight; the reason becomes clear as she introduces Henry to Grams, who is sitting next to her. For some reason, Henry incredulously repeats, "Your grandmother?" as if he's never seen a senior citizen in his life. Grams rises slowly from her chair, clearly not having expected to meet anyone, and shakes Henry's hand, saying it's a "pleasant surprise." Henry gets through the usual pleasantries politely enough. Grams asks Jen why she didn't tell her Henry was coming, since, had she known, Grams would have gladly stayed home so that they could be alone. Before Jen can say anything in response, she notes that the play is starting and they all sit down; Jen manoeuvres in such a way that Grams ends up sitting between herself and Henry. Again I must ask why Jen tried so hard to re-establish ties with Henry if being with him makes her so uncomfortable. It's not that I blame her; it's just that they should have left him off the show entirely, because he adds nothing to it.
Backstage, a few minutes into the play, Andie frets but seems to have things pretty well under control. Pacey appears. Andie cusses him out a bit and says that she sent his understudy into make-up fifteen minutes ago. Pacey says that he thinks the understudy should stay there, since Pacey can't do the play. Andie tells him that she gave up on his knowing the play word for word a long time ago, and that now she'll be satisfied if he goes out and gives "the general gist." She straightens up his costume, hands him his prop suitcase, and sends him out on stage. It happens that his first cue is "Say something!" and, after a beat, he smoothly delivers his line. Backstage, Andie claps and looks relieved.
