Upstairs, Henry has stripped all the way down to a pair of clingy white boxers in the guest room. The McPoodle is lying on the bed. Okay, I really must have body issues, because I'm way more modest when I'm a guest at somebody's home or sharing a hotel room with somebody or something. I would not be standing around in my undies. Catherine wanders in to ask him if he has everything he needs. He says he does, and he's totally unconcerned about Catherine seeing him in his skivvies. He turns around to climb into bed; Catherine scopes out his ass. After he's in bed, Catherine closes the door and comes in to give us the scene we already know from the previews. She smiles and sits on the bed next to Henry. She's on the verge of crying and is in desperate need of a hot oil treatment for her hair. She asks Henry about Page. Henry says he doesn't think she's his mother after all, and wonders if he has the right information. He might just give up the search. Catherine starts to cry and says she's sorry for him. Then she gives a strange smile and says, "I could be like a mother to you." Then she leans over and kisses him. She pulls back and Henry looks at her, a little confused, but not horrified. Oh, and there's a little bit of chemistry. I'm not sure what that means, though, because Dana Delany seems to have pretty good chemistry with everybody she has scenes with. She whispers, "Good night, Henry," grabs the McPoodle, and we get a glamour shot of her spinning around to give him a winning smile (though she's still tear-streaked) as she leaves the room. Henry touches his lips in confusion as Rufus croons, "Oh no, oh no. No kidding." Indeed.
