You will be relieved to know that Kai didn't run off to go cry her eyes out somewhere. Instead, she's hoping over the back fence -- the entrance of choice to the Yost home for anyone who's anybody -- to notify Cissy that her son and bete noir are waiting outside. All Cissy hears is someone rattling around outside, and all she thinks is that it's probably Tina mounting a rear assault -- probably one of her movie titles, incidentally -- so she takes out the gun and, man oh man, are we about to see some sort of tragic misunderstanding here involving gunplay? We are not. Because that would be interesting. Instead, Cissy sees Kai through the window, stashes the gun in a basket, in the kitchen and scolds her about the foolishness of sneaking about. And Kai's all like, hey, did you know Tina is outside? And Cissy's like, she is? And the audience is like, yeah, and it's been that way for two minutes now -- do you think maybe we could speed things along here? Anyhow, Butchie and Tina have begun the long walk up to the house, and Cissy spies them and starts freaking right the hell out. "Oh my God! Oh my God!" she cries. "Shoot me then. Take that gun and shoot me if you'd like her to see him." Say, now there's an idea! Kai is less accommodating however -- she's all "Gun? Frantic, screamy woman? Ooh -- bad combo." She grabs the gun and orders Cissy to sit down at the kitchen table and enjoy herself another good healthy cigarette.
There's a knock at the door, and Cissy looks at it like some sort of goblin is on the other side, selling magazine subscriptions. Kai goes to answer. She opens the door wordlessly and stares down at the ground as Butchie and Tina come in. Cissy is now clutching a cigarette and staring wordlessly at Tina. Butchie looks expectantly at his mother. Nobody says anything. "She only wants to look at him, Mom," Butchie says. "Then she'll go." No one says anything again. Then, Cissy scootches her chair out of the way. "He's sleeping," she whispers. (Well, he isn't -- the camera has shown us several times that Shaun is lying in bed, taking all of this in.) "Do not wake him up." Also, don't confuse his mind with your crazy porn values, porn lady -- in our house, we teach young men that plumbers and TV repairmen are compensated properly with cash. Butchie leads Tina to Shaun's bedroom. That was a lot less confrontational than I had been led to believe it was going to be.
So, reunion time. Butchie opens the door, and Shaun's lying on the bed, arms folded behind his head. His eyes are closed now. (Faker.) Tina looks at him for a little bit, and then she turns to go, shutting the door behind her. Shaun's eyes pop open. Fakey faker who fakes.
