Sekou feels like the obvious has been stated and Renee finally speaks up. "Maybe it's because he's irresponsible," she says. Zeek, admirably controlled, says that that is not his understanding of the situation. "Well," Renee says, "there's a five-year-old little boy here that he hasn't seen... for five years." Even now, Crosby plays it mature and does not jump to his own defense, and finally, seeing this all go down, Jasmine tells the truth. "I never told him about his son," she says. Her family is shocked. "It was easier for me to lie to you," she says, "and make you think he was just like dad. If you're gonna be mad at anyone, be mad at me." The whole room stares until finally the silence is broken. Leave it to the wonderful Jabbar to put it all back in perspective: "Is it time for cake?!" he asks, excited and, the tension broken, everyone cheers the birthday boy.
Another gathering goes on that night at HQ. Dang, these people spend a lot of time together. Do none of them have friends? Zeek gets on Sarah's back about why Amber was absent from Jabbar's party. Sarah, while Camille looks on, mumbles that Amber was studying. Adam gets on Zeek's back about telling Camille about the mortgage situation, and he mumbles that he hasn't done it, but will. All of this is awkward, but none of it is as awkward as Julia sitting down with Kristina and trying, but failing, to casually thank her for the books and support about Asperger's, but um, Sydney actually tested gifted. Kristina has... a FEW emotions all at once (geez, I love Monica Potter), but says she is happy for Julia and Sydney. And she is happy, I'm sure, but then again... you know? How hard must something like that be? It breaks my heart in a million pieces.
