Cut to Grace's room, where she's flat on her back in bed, clutching the blankets to her chin. She stares at the ceiling, horrified by the sounds emanating from it: the squeaking of bed springs punctuated by groans, moans, cries, and gasps. Manning Manor hasn't seen this much action in ages. "Mom?" Zoe calls out, jolting Lily awake. Groggily, she asks what the problem is. Zoe opens the bedroom door and asks, "Can you hear them?" You'd have to be living in the next county not to. Lily throws off the covers and strides into the hall, warning Zoe to stay there. She glances in disbelief up the stairs and mutters, "This can't be happening." She resolutely shuts the door to the stairs, takes Zoe by the hand, and leads the traumatized girl back to bed.
The next morning, Lily and Aaron are seated in the kitchen. She watches him eat and asks how he likes the eggs. He smiles and murmurs that breakfast is an important meal. They reminisce about the breakfasts their grandmother used to make. Lily smiles at the memory, then grows somber. She leans forward and touches Aaron's arm, softly saying that she needs to tell him something, and she needs for him to try very hard to listen and not get upset. Aaron looks away noncomittally. Lily says that Miriam needs to back to the home today. Aaron looks around without meeting her eyes, absently patting his chest and asking if she has a pencil. He finds one and says that Miriam thinks he should write things down. He adds another item to his list of dreams. Grace barrels in and hovers behind them, asking, "Mom?" Lily tells her to give them a second. Aaron announces that he's adding eggs to his list, that he's going to have dozens of eggs. Lily tries to steer him back to the subject at hand, saying that everyone agreed Miriam could go with them to look at Aaron's new apartment, but then she has to go home. Grace rolls her eyes. Aaron soaks it in for a few seconds, then says that sometimes things confuse him, and he doesn't understand this. Judy comes in the back door, and Aaron, visibly upset, tells her that Miriam has to go home. "Oh, sweetie," Judy sighs. Aaron stands up and says he'd like to go upstairs, "if that's okay." "Of course, sweetie," Judy says. Yeah, he has a name, Judy.
