She goes home with him to a seacoast town where he intends to have it out with his nemesis; she meets his father, his daughter from a one-night stand, and other family members - and there's the memory of his talented (and dead) brother. Jerrod treats Lily badly, invents a relationship with a women he had a crush on years before, and gears up for his fight. Will she finally have enough and go home?

my fish and chips.


Attracted from the considerable

distance by the distressed or wounded.

From the same tree

That sounds really cool.


I got the idea when Winston

tried to eat my fish.

Thanks, Damon.

I like that a lot.

I'm really sorry

They don't know

what they're missing.

And if Mum and Dad were alive,

they'd say the same thing as well.

Thanks, Damon.

Well, it's true.

Goodnight, Sis.
