Randall is unbearably devastated by his mother's lies and betrayal. He, Kate, and Kevin make a trip to their family cabin; Olivia tags along with her uninvited ex-boyfriend Asher and playwright Sloane. Olivia makes a rude comment to Kate, driving a wedge between her and Kevin. Though "Vision Jack" can't believe Rebecca lied to him too, he tells Randall to understand his mother's point of view. Kate still wants to be friends with Toby, but he would rather not.
