Later, Beth and her mom walk on the beach and force themselves to enjoy some quality time. Beth gloomily predicts that this visit won't change anything. All she wants is for her mother to be proud of her, but that will never happen, she says. Way to have a positive attitude. Then Beth voice-overs some depressing stuff to the effect that her mom does the best she can, and that's all she's ever going to get, and that she'll have to just accept that. Then her mother hops on a plane and, with a giant sigh of relief, returns to her glamorous life as the Polish Voice of Cleveland.
Back at the house, Beth and Aaron have it out. Calmly. I mean, they don't yell. He asks her whether she has a problem with Glenn. Beth responds that Glenn is only trying to bait her in order to create drama in his boring, boring life. Aaron smacks a basketball as he apologizes for upsetting Beth in the past, and tells her that she can always come to him if she needs to talk. Beth explains that she's bothered by his calling her "psycho" behind her back, and that she doesn't feel that he respects her. For some reason, Aaron is wearing a black velvet riding cap, like the one Elizabeth Taylor wears in National Velvet. It's distracting. Anyway, Beth explains that Aaron needs to accept their differences of opinion. Aaron agrees that he needs to become more compassionate. They hug. I'm positive this new peace between them will last forever and ever.
Banthony tells the camera that Beth is "growing, as far as her individual strengths go," and then spews some more psychobabble. The two of them go to a kickboxing class, and Banthony voice-overs that she's going to miss Beth when "this is all over," because she's the only person who ever drags her out to do fun stuff she'd never do otherwise. Or something. Anyway, they happily kick stuff together. Beth imagines Glenn's face pasted on the front of her punching bag and gets off a stellar roundhouse kick.
Beth tells Banthony that she can't believe how petty Glenn is. Banthony replies that Beth needs to stand up to Glenn, and that the best way to deal with him is to turn your back on him and ignore him. Don't feed the monster! My advice would be to smack him upside the head, but that's just me.
God, Glenn's talking again. I hate him so much. He says he's forgiven Beth for "all the dimwitted things she's done in the past," like, how sensitive and touching of him, and clearly, he speaks the truth, and he's let go of all the hate. Beth explains that she ran into Glenn and his friend with the Raggedy Ann red hair (Aileen) at a local coffee shop, and they sort of started talking about their relationship. All she asks is that they attempt to get along. Glenn says something to the effect that his big family made him defensive, I think. To tell the truth, I've started tuning Glenn out, because he doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and also, he makes me mad. He does promise to try harder with Beth. Again, I am very sure this will last. Can't you smell the optimism in the air? Oh, that's just smog. My bad.
