Commercials. Hospital. The doctor comes out to talk to Matt. He tells him that his grandmother is fine, with mainly just some scrapes and bruises. But that isn't really the issue, he notes. Her mental health is really deteriorating. The doctor reminds Matt that they've discussed other living arrangements for Lorraine. Shelby jumps in and asks the doctor what he means, exactly. The doctor says that Lorraine needs twenty-four hour care. Shelby is a little slow here, wanting to clarify that he's saying they should be looking into assisted living facilities for Grandma. Matt snaps awake and shouts at his mom that they aren't looking for anything, that just because Grandma fell out of a car, "That YOU were driving" doesn't mean she needs twenty-four hour care, it means "YOU need to pay better attention." Shelby tries to diffuse the situation a bit, but suggests to Matt that they consider what the doctor is saying. Matt plays the You Abandoned Me card and suggests that if Shelby wants to bail she can go back to Oklahoma. "Right now, Grandma has a home, and I'm taking her to it."
Buddy pulls his truck up to the school and calls Tim Riggins over to the car. "We need to have a little man-to-man." Tim gets in, and then cut to Buddy's truck slowing down on an empty side road. Is Buddy going to murder Tim Riggins? Just when the storylines were all so solid, are we going down the murder road again? Tim is prattling about State until Buddy tells him that he knows they're not there to talk about football. Buddy asks how Lyla is doing, and Tim tells him that she's hanging in there. Buddy confesses that he doesn't know what to do, that he needs to get Lyla back, can't stand that he's hurt her, and misses her so much. Tim tells the vulnerable man that he knows Lyla misses him, too. Buddy allows a note of hope into his voice, and it is super sad to hear: "You know that? She said that?" Tim lies and says that she did. I mean, maybe she has, off screen, but Lyla has not done anything recently that I've seen to indicate that she is ready to say she misses him. Tim tells Buddy that he needs to give Lyla more time. Tim has apparently been going to night school for a degree in Life, because he is TELLING US ALL HOW IT IS recently. Buddy pauses and then says (I shit you not, this is literally what he says): "That's good, Tim Riggins. That's good advice. You're a good man."
