After Jack's death, Rebecca decides to enter the workforce. She is hired after Randall advocates for her with an interviewer. Randall admits that doing his laundry at home is an excuse; he comes home only to spend time with Rebecca.
In the present, it is the day before Thanksgiving. Rebecca visits Randall. He is troubled by her constant misplacement of her phone, and a series of what Miguel refers to as "senior moments." When he suggests she see a doctor, she becomes defensive and they exchange unkind words; Randall indirectly criticizes Rebecca's parenting.
Malik tells Beth that Deja wants to see Shauna, and calls out Beth's equivocation; Beth agrees to Deja's request to invite Shauna for Thanksgiving.
Kevin and Cassidy avoid each other, but attend Nicky's hearing together after Nicky seeks Cassidy's help with an erratic but sober Kevin; Nicky expresses gratitude for receiving treatment and having Kevin in his life, and the pretrial diversion is approved. With Kevin's encouragement, Cassidy joins her husband and son at a restaurant and does not deliver her signed divorce papers. Throughout the day, Nicky engages Kevin in honest discussions about Kevin's choices, during which Kevin sees and hears Jack speaking to him through Nicky.
