Cameron is all not schoolin' sitting on the couch with headphones on, but no music playing or Walkman that we can see. He turns when he hears the door open. It's Mitch, and he asks Cameron to "take that upstairs." The Walkman? Whatever. Cam gets up to go, but starts jaw-clicking and mouth-breathing, so we know he's gotta get something off his chest. He takes off the headphones and says, "I'm sorry." He's developed a lisp. He says he's not going to end up like Steve. "I know," Mitch says, "I'm not going to let you." Cam says he wants to go back to school. Mitch says they'll work on that, but he's "going to be tough" on Cam. He's got his hands on his hips to show just how tough he's going to be. Say the next line with me: "But just 'cause I'm tough on you Cam, doesn't mean I don't love you." Tongue...thickening... "As long as you don't give up on me." Stomach...clenching... "Not even." Throat...tightening... Cam gives his over-toothy grin and I vomit all over my chair. The phone rings. Cam and Mitch share a few smiles. Cam leaves as Steve conveniently walks in. "Yeah, Detective, he is my brother." Mitch and Steve share a few looks. Mitch says he'd be happy to answer a few questions. Mitch gets off the phone and Steve asks if he turned him in. Mitch says he didn't, but that the police were on their way over for questioning. He says that Steve has to turn himself in.
At the track race...it's Friday? How many days have passed? What time is it? Meghan cheers for Clay.
Mary asks Mitch if she's sure he doesn't want her to stay. He says no and kisses her goodbye. She tells him to tell Steve goodbye for her. Wow. Your brother-in-law is looking at five to ten and you have someone deliver your goodbye for you when he's in your own house? S.E.L.F.-C.E.N.T.E.R.E.D. Steve walks down the stairs as Mary leaves.
Meghan has one eye on Clay running and the other looking for CBD.
Mitch says he'll get Steve the best lawyer in town. Steve asks what he's going to tell their father. Mitch asks what Steve wants him to say. Steve goes through a few possible lies.
