If you were to close

your eyes right now,

what would you see of that

terrible, horrific night?

How did you feel

as a mother,

as a wife?

When I close my eyes,

I see it happen

over and over again.

It just plays on a loop

in my mind, all the...

And I imagine

what I could have

done differently.

I don't believe in a world

where things

are meant to be.

I believe that

we are responsible

for our own actions.

And within that world,

is there any room

for forgiveness?

I mean...

Can we be forgiven for

our terrible mistakes?

And can we forgive other

people who have hurt us?

It's a mighty challenge.


Or do we just force

ourselves to forgive

in some fashion

and move on?

Honey, can you help me

find my new tie, please?

The gold one.

Sure, honey.

Got it.

Mom, what time

are we leaving?

Now. Honey, why

aren't you dressed?

Mid-term election season now,

and there are a number of

big issues at play this year.

Uhuh, uhuh. A full week

in Baton Rouge?

...will likely lose seats in

both the House and the Senate.

-You look so handsome.

-Is that really necessary?

And his endorsement?

Okay, then we'll...

we'll do what we have to.

All right, thanks, Neil.


Well, apparently the governor

is still on the fence.

I'll just have my dad

talk to him again.

Well, at least I can count

on your vote.

Oh, I don't know.

The election's still

a little ways away.

- Hey, now.

- Mom, I need earrings.

-Where are the hoop ones?

-Lizzy, what are you wearing?

-It's a cocktail dress.

-Oh, hell no.

Come on, it's what

everyone wears.

And you are

a politician's daughter,

and you have to think

more elegant, sweetheart,

and longer and higher.

-Yeah, much longer.

-You two are so boring.

I never get to do

anything fun.

- Love you.

- Love you more.

Well, I guess

we're boring.

Oh, I'm okay with that.

I'm just not okay with that.

You two have

one question apiece. That's it.

Councilman Simon,

you've been very vocal

in your support

of gun control.

Are you afraid of


your base?

Uh, no, I'm not worried

because I believe what I say,

and I think folks

appreciate a man who

speaks from the heart.

This has been

a highly contested

Senate race.

How do you plan to sway

undecided voters?

Well, I have

a secret weapon,

these two lovely ladies

right here.

My husband is

the most qualified candidate,

and he has served

the people of this city

for eight years

on the council.

He's a successful attorney

with countless hours

of public service,

and he's a great

father and husband.

Although I may be a little

biased on that last point.

Okay, thank you.

Thank you.

Councilman, what about

the rumors of

the alleged affair?

Could this be contributing

to your slump in the polls?

Internet gossip has

nothing to do with

my husband's platform

and the real change

he will bring

to this state

as senator of Louisiana.

All right, now if

you'll excuse us.

Our family's here to support

the local arts community

and this wonderful

cause tonight, so...

Thank you.

Thank you, all.

Thank you.

Appreciate it.

Thank you.

So there we have his position

on gun control is unchanged.

Not really addressing

the rumors of an affair,

other than really letting

his wife speak for him

this evening.

We are here live in New Orleans

in the Warehouse District.

Now back to you.

They just blindsided us.

I mean, at least

give us a heads-up.

Our daughter's here.

Do you know how

she must feel?

I'm really sorry,


Ronnie, Ronnie,

go easy on him, honey.

Neil can't control
