Cate and Lux head off, leaving Baze to make awkward conversation. He tries to find some common ground, positioning himself as a father happy to have his daughter back in his life, but Grant makes some comments about how "two [children] is plenty" and "they're a lot of work when they're little," intimating that perhaps he wouldn't have been such a great dad if he had stuck around. They pour a drink, and Baze toasts to second chances.
Dinner. Lux compliments the dinner, and Cate jokes that she got her cooking skills (or lack thereof) from her mom. Grant says the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Cate snarks, "No wonder you left." Overly eager laughter followed by awkward glances all around. Cate says she wishes her dad could meet Ryan, then takes the cue to invite him to the wedding. He isn't immediately keen on the idea. She ignores that red flag, starting up about how his absence has cast a shadow on all the important days of her life. She extends the offer once more. He wonders aloud, "What kind of a dad would I be if I said no to that?" Which is not really a yes, so much as a "Well, you just guilted the ever-living Hell out of me, so I guess so?"
After dinner, Lux finds Baze out on the porch. She says it might just be the two of them on the drive back to Portland because Cate's making plans to drive back with Grant. Baze reluctantly admits he gets a bad vibe from Grant. He says Grant doesn't want to be a father, adding that he used to be the same way. He thinks Cate has a right to know this, but Lux warns him that this is definitely a "shoot the messenger" type of situation.
