She digs in and makes poor Jack do the same. He asks about work and she shares that Gabi seems to have skipped bail. Jack believes the police will be able to track her down and wonders whether the fair Jen has seen Justin. She has and still wants to tell Kayla about how Steve feels. Jack smoothly changes the subject back to their own family and finishing the sugar. Jen takes a picture with a gummy bear for the kids and decide to end that dinner for a real one. He gushes he has got a backup plan. She gushes like always … Gwen is hungry so Claire hands her a candy bar. She wonders what is soooo significant about that book.
