Andrea and Brian arrive at the doctor's and say that Brian Jr.'s doing better. The doctor asks them to sit and then tells them Brian Jr.'s fine, with normal labs, but that in running the blood tests, he discovered that Andrea has cancer. She says she knows, but it's clear that Brian did not. After their appointment, they're walking in the park, and she tells him how she was diagnosed a year ago, but didn't like her odds of surviving by chemo so she went to Brazil for holistic treatment, and her cancer went into remission, and she's been disease-free for over a year now. Until today. Um, didn't she just say that she was diagnosed a year ago? Then she said she did six months of treatment and has been disease-free for about a year. That does not compute. Then again, neither does this episode's timeline, since Brian got the call summoning them to the doctor immediately back before he went to the engagement party, but they're just now at the doctor? Why? What happened? Anyway, Andrea says she's going back to Brazil to start treatment again, but Brian doesn't like that idea because he wants to take care of her. Apparently he loves her, which is all well and good, except for that small matter of his wife and other children, whom we have heard nothing about this season. Did they disappear into oblivion? Maybe they're in the South Pacific orgasming with Juliet?
Just as Brian and Andrea are coming together, Nick and Lisa are in their apartment, where he's telling her they need to spend some time apart because he can't be with her right now. This entire scene is beautifully acted, although I could have used a little less crying from Lisa. I mean, I know she would be sad and crying in real life, but this isn't real life, so spare me, okay? Nick says she lied, and he can't be married to someone who lies to him because he gets enough of that from the Darlings. She said she thought they were trying to work on it, and he says they were, but it's not working, and holding on to this thing like their lives depend on it is killing them. She asks if he's leaving her, and he says he just needs some time away, just for a little while. She always wanted them to give Kiki a picture perfect American life, but he says now they have the picture perfect American problems. She starts really crying here, and it sort of gets to me, because she tells him how much she's going to miss him. He hugs her and tells her he's going to miss her too. She's sobbing, and he looks completely devoid of feeling, until he seems to have an epiphany that he actually will miss her. The camera pans to their fridge, where Kiki has made a felt collage picture of their perfect American life.
