"I applaud your compassion but I worry about your judgment," she says, which her dumb daughter interprets as a maybe, and she grins. "Now I'm worried about your hearing," she says, and they say goodbye in the way of that Ashley/Hanna actor-chemistry thing they always do, where you could honestly believe that they're mother and daughter, this well-rehearsed team of a family. It's impressive every time.
Hanna lets Caleb out of the basement and asks what I was wondering last week, which is to how much of their constant conversations about stealing money from the old woman he's actually privy, and he says not much, but then calls them "the girl with poor judgment" and "the Cat in the Hat." He thinks about getting out of her hair and she assures him it's fine. Which it is at this point, because they're in neutral-power territory, which is a state that can't last but has been nice so far.
But if I had a Caleb in my basement I wouldn't want him to leave either, he's just great. Always with the foster-kid insights and godlike techno-prowess and social-worker sunny disposition. I'd rather replace the milk than grandma's china, as the saying goes, which is why you should always check references when inviting an urchin to come stay with you.
Aria does some Lucille Ball physical comedy outside Ezra's, and it's adorable, and they discuss how Byron wants to take him on a date for beer -- which of course Aria thinks is a great idea, because in her head they are already both 35 and married -- and Aria lies by omission about whether or not her "homies" (Ezra keeps saying this word) know about how they are doing it, illegal-style, and then she adorably twinkles and winkles him into making her the stage manager of the play he's suddenly putting on, so that they can be near to each other always and make it plainly obvious they are doing it so that Ezra can go to jail and be murdered for molesting by a drug offender wielding a bicycle chain or a tube sock with bar of soap inside.
Hanna needs her mascara! But Caleb is showering! With his naked body! What's a girl to do? Well, prove that it's not a huge deal by going in there and grabbing it, of course... But what's Ashley doing home, she just left twenty minutes ago! Now what? Well, now what is Hanna jumps in the shower, fully dressed, with Caleb's naked body and her hand over his mouth. And then his ass, and then his dick, and a tattoo apparently somewhere we can't see it, and then he asks her if she wants to join him in the shower, clothes-free, and then heart-stopping cliffhanger.
