We return to the family meet-and-greet. As the Baziles take Lux inside, Cate bitch-faces at her mom and sister about why they're there. Abbie wastes not a moment before trying to create sparks with Baze. Except he doesn't even remember her name. Heh. Clearly stressed, he starts inside hoping the ladies will follow. Nope! Cate's mom takes her aside to say how relieved she is that Cate lost her virginity to the QB instead of the mascot. Methinks the Baziles should pull up a chair for Cate's mortification. It ain't going nowheres. Cate zips up her mother's jacket and asks her to tone it down just for one night. Mom huffs her box of white zin into the house as Abbie snits at Cate for sleeping with Baze behind her back. What about that whole "he just thought your name was Annie?" thing, asks Cate. "He was being discreet," insists Abbie. Uh huh.
Once everyone's inside, Baze tries to play up Cate's success with her job. Ideally, this would prompt Lux to tell the Baziles how she listened to Cate all her life before finding out that Cate was actually her mother. But Lux is not in a "plays well with others" kind of mood tonight, so she shrugs off the cue. Cate's mom either got a head start on the box o' wine before dinner or is a cheap date. Either way she laughs about how she never listens to Cate before she gets a little handsy with Lux. Baze's mom says she prefers radio shows with a stronger moral fiber. Abbie tries to be a team player by asking Baze about the bar, but it only gives his dad an opening to shit talk his own son in front of the whole extended family. Good times. Baze changes the subject, saying Lux transferred to Westmonte. Mrs. Bazile asks if Lux has made some new friends, and Lux continues to be a real peach by saying that she already had friends, and Cate is keeping her from seeing them.
At which point Baze takes Cate and Lux to another room for a family powwow. Seriously, he has them huddle. He tells them to save the cat fights for later, but Cate feels like she's the put-upon one. She asks what she did. Lux launches into her ready-made rant about how her social life was just dandy before (minus the homelessness and friend who would steal from you without thinking twice) and that, after a life spent in foster homes where no one cared about what she thought, she hoped her real family would give her opinions some consideration. Instead of telling her to tamp the brat factor down and shut the eff up for another two hours, Cate listens. So Lux twists the knife further. She says she's not going to sit quietly and pretend that these strangers are her family because "they're not." Then she adds, "You're not." Lux concludes her dramatic monologue by turning around to walk out. At which point she discovers that everyone in the house has heard her little hissy fit. Way to go, punk.
