Later that day at the christening, Enzo compliments Diana on how stunning she looks (He is just so sweet). Diana wants to look good for his family, and he says she knocked it out of the park. Enzo is called up to the alter as the godfather along with a gorgeous woman named Maria – the godmother. Enzo’s sister lets Diana know Maria is the ex-girlfriend, and Enzo is always out the door around the one year mark of a relationship.
While going through more of Charles’ boxes, Liza finds an old article with a photograph of him and Pauline at the same event with the same couple they dined with the night before. It seems to rattle Liza, so she texts Josh asking for one last ride on the motorcycle.
She sneaks out to meet up with him, and they ride off, stopping on the bridge to reflect and talk. Liza tells Josh about a book that reminds her of them. It’s about a younger man who has an affair with an older woman. He asks how it ends, but she says the writer didn’t finish the book. Josh likes that the reader has to figure out the ending for themselves. He asks, “How do you think it ends?” Liza says, “I don’t know.”
I’m Not Interested
Kelsey approaches Charles about the manuscript Liza found. She wants him to reach out to the author and negotiate a deal to finish it. He is not interested in pursuing this. As publisher; Kelsey insists she’s interested. As the author, Charles “most certainly is not.”
In The Family Forever
After the baptism, Diana questions Enzo about his one-year expiration date on relationships. Before he responds, they are gathered for a picture. Enzo’s mom moves the godparents together and pushes Diana off to the side; so much that she falls into the bushes.
Enzo wants Diana next to him, but his mom says the pictures are going to be in this family forever. Enzo hopes Diana will too; he gets down on bended knee and proposes to Diana. She says, “YES”!!!
Let’s Get Out Of Here
Liza and Charles are walking into another formal event. He asks where she disappeared to today, and she says she needed to cut loose for a few hours. He teases she needed to disappear while Kelsey read the manuscript. Charles confesses to having an affair the summer he turned 21, with the wife of a famous author. She thought a fling with a younger man would make her feel younger. And for a while, it was exciting for both of them.
He didn’t finish the book because he realized it would hurt too many people in the end. He knew what it was like to be that heedless young man, and he understood the mind of a woman in her 40’s who was bored with her life and needed his validation. They change the subject and joke they don’t want to go to this party, and so they decide to “make a run for it.”
The Analogies Continue
There’s always a constant push and pull between what was, what is, and what could be. That’s what makes our favorite show so great.
