At the hospital, Jack writes out a check for Gwen for fifty thousand dollars as Gwen looks on, hurt. She asks how much he spent on Abigail. Jack thinks she wants more. Gwen slaps him across the face.

At Alice’s, Laura sobs, confirming that Gwen is Jack’s daughter. Abigail hugs her grandmother. “It’s okay. You were trying to protect Mom and Dad.” Laura blames herself for how Gwen grew up. Jennifer gets her mother a tissue and Abigail hugs Laura before leaving the room. Jennifer is obviously upset but refuses to yell at her mom when Laura begs her to say something, anything. Jack interrupts, surprised to see Laura. Jenn explains that he can discuss Gwen in front of her mother since she knows everything. Jack confirms he’s Gwen’s father. Jennifer asks Laura to tell Jack her story, while she goes upstairs. “This is between the two of you,” she shouts on her way up. Laura details what she told his wife and daughter and apologizes. Jack can’t believe she did this without telling him. Laura says her mother was horrible. Jack yells that thanks to her, his little girl grew up without a father. “Who the hell gave you the right to play God?” He yells. Laura’s sorry and sobs but Jack’s relentless. Soon, she goes and Jenn comforts Jack.
