Pleasant car ride between father and illegitimate son. Some details about the doctor's history are rehashed for the new audience. He helped Sydney fake her death 11 years ago and cheated on his wife with her. Sydney was sleeping with David to get back at him. David takes the opportunity to swipe at his estranged father by telling him Sydney said he's better in bed. Take that, dad. David's mother is dead, apparently, and Dr. Mancini spent 13 years or so denying David's existence. Take that, son. David points out he never calls his father to ask for anything, and suggests he call his lawyer because the police will come to him next. This gets the doctor angry enough to pull over the Mercedes right next to a bridge full of homeless bums so he can kick David out. Take that, bums.
At a colorful outdoor birthday party, Ella meets up with Jonah and starts leading him around while talking like any good publicist can do in their sleep. She's there conveniently to try and get the birthday girl into US Weekly. For our purposes, she's there so that Jonah's awkward stage as a character gets some narration for this scene. Ella listens to Jonah whine about not wanting to go through with this for about a minute before she cuts him off. I'm falling in love. She tells Jonah he's a good filmmaker and she's not just saying that because she's his publicist, manager and agent. It's because she has a thing for him, which she doesn't do a very good job of hiding at the end of her pep talk. Jonah gets the hint and tells her he proposed to Riley today. Katie Cassidy nails Ella's reaction here. Her mouth drops open in a stupified way, she looks up for words or thoughts for a moment, blanks the look on her face before turning three o'clock and walking away without saying a word. We won't say anything about the look on Jonah's face.
