B finds her mom and it's awkward for a second, due to Eleanor's total emotional abuse that is killing her daughter, but she starts with an apology for lying about Harold this one time. Blair's like, "So that's one time out of the billion lies, cool beans," and Eleanor shows her the divorce papers that she got in lieu of a pumpkin pie this year. Blair understands that Eleanor is stalling on the papers, but points out that Harold is now living in Europe with a man, and they both laugh, but, like, is the divorce really a surprise? Eleanor stammers but says something that rings very true, even if you've never been happily married for twenty years to a gay dude, which is that whatever, he was her Harold. She reveals that this time, the lie was about not seeing her Harold during the holidays, because that was their best time. "Why didn't you just tell me that?" Well, B, because you would have picked Harold if you knew you had a choice, so you couldn't be allowed to have any choices, because then Eleanor would be lonelier than the Captain, and that would admittedly be very sad. Still not off the hook for the bulimia dare, Eleanor, but I feel you on this. She kind of laughs and notes how she ended up alone anyway, and Blair offers to have a private Thanksgiving with her right now.
The Captain wakes up and sees his son, who's been waiting since he passed out immediately, when they first said he was going to live. He tells his dad that Anne's going to be all right, and promises that they are all going to be all right, and before his dad can start lying about how he forgot about the Vicodin before he had his drink -- just like Anne said, just like they always cover for each other -- Nate's like, "Nope. It wasn't an accident, and we're not fucking around like that anymore. When I found you, I thought you were dead." The Captain swallows and doesn't finish his sentence: "I'm sorry. I just didn't...I couldn't..." Nate promises him that he can, and they will, and he puts his hand on his father's hand, like a blessing. And you know what, I think Nate is awesome and I think he has a good chance at bringing his dad back to life and getting his peeps in line, but if he doesn't, man is he screwed.
