Andy's face nearly breaks and she stares at him, worried; he nods and points out that she's ruined his life. Which she's fine with, but not the way he almost bursts into tears: That makes her slap him, to make it stop. He does, jumping into manic jokey-smurf: "Not to mention you lied to my brother and made him raise another man's baby! When are we gonna deal with that?" I wouldn't say he's delighted, because it's kind of intense, but there's a sort of oooh girl drama face that comes over him that's pretty great. Like, not "deal" necessarily but maybe kinda "dish." You know?
"I know. I'm the downfall of all Botwin men." "And Guinard, and Reyes," Andy points out, and Schiff and Shane show up. Andy's got to hide his face when she mumbles about changing the baby so they can go ahead, but you can tell Shane's already halfway there. She ushers them away, but she can't help giving him a little encouragement, instead of goodbye. Her voice breaks when she asks him for a pillow and blanket, and he nods. "Go fast, okay?"
The last person she sees is Andy, and it nearly kills her. Once they're on the plane Shane's like, "I gotta get something, hold on." Andy refuses to look him in the eye as they quibble over gum and who gets the aisle seat, but eventually Andy gives in and he heads for the front of the plane. The look in Shane's eye is something we've only seen a few times: Whenever Nancy gets caged up. It's heartbreaking. But he gets a little stronger, they both do, when Andy admits she's not coming.
Esteban and Guillermo show up with Silas, and the camera does that Hitchcock thing where she stays put and the world peels away, and Silas apologizes for showing up at just the wrong time: Guillermo and Esteban ran into him just after proving themselves to security: "It was like fate," Guillermo grins.
The thing that makes you awesome is the thing that makes you suck. 100% of the time. But we hardly ever get to talk about the opposite thing, which is also true: The very worst thing about Nancy Botwin is the very best thing about Nancy Botwin.
