Kevin is still in the café with Lizzy. She tells Kevin that she is from out of town, Chicago.

At the doctor’s, the test is over.

Rebecca gets a call, the doctor has the results and wants Randall and Miguel in the room with her when she tells her.
Back to Rebecca, she is at her father’s party. Her mother tries to console her for Jack breaking up with her.

At the doctor’s office, Rebecca is told that she has mild cognitive impairment, it means that there are changes in her understanding of things. The doctor says that before they put a name to it, she would like to take blood tests and an MRI. If things deteriorate, she could lose even more of her memory.
Everyone is gone from Toby’s party. Kate asks him why he left the gym two weeks ago. Toby says she was right about Cara, she tried to kiss him and he stopped it. He didn’t tell Kate because he was wrong and he didn’t want to give them another reason to fight. Kate tells him that she feels him pulling away and that he would rather be anywhere but at home with her and Jack. Toby says this is not about her, he loves her and Jack. The tension she is feeling when he is home when she looks at their son she has joy in her eyes when he looks at their son he is sad.
