Recap

The last day of summer, Rebecca wants to take the kids to the pool. Jack says they're in seventh grade and won't want to spend time with them. It turns out he's right, leaving Rebecca to remember when they were little and couldn't wait to go.

In the present, Randall wants to have a family fun day at the end of summer but Deja wants to ride the bus with him and Tess wants a haircut. Annie doesn't care what they do.

Kevin talks at his group about how hard things have been for him.

Kate has found a specialist on Yelp to help them learn how to deal with a blind kid. Meanwhile, Rebecca and Miguel meet Kevin, who is going to Kate and Toby's. They think he should forget Nicky and focus on himself.

At the pool, Kevin won't let Rebecca put sunscreen on him and all the kids find friends to hang with, though Rebecca is worried that the girls who are hanging with Kate are mean girls who don't really like her.

On the bus, some guy sits with Deja and Randall freaks out and won't let her take the bus to school. Meanwhile, Beth disapproves of Tess' choice of haircut.

At Toby and Kate's, Toby admits he's worried about Kate.

In the present, Kevin checks on baby Jack, who cries when he picks him up. He puts him back down.

at the pool, Kevin asks Jack if he's a good person.

In the present, Kevin talks to the baby. He's 187 days old, which he knows because he is 187 days sober, which seems like an eternity when you're trying not to drink. 

Jack says of course Kevin is a good person. Kevin says he does so many bad things. Jack tells him that they come from a long line who have mixed up stuff inside them.

In the present Kevin thinks he should take the movie. It'll keep him sober and it's easier because the director tells him what to do.

Jack tells Kevin that having people you care about and want to take care of turns you into the man you want to be. Kevin thanks him and goes

In the present, Kate comes in and says she heard everything over the monitor. Kevin asks if she is okay. Kate says the doctors warned her not to have a baby. She knew about the risks and did it anyway. She blames herself and wants to wallow in it. Kevin asks why the baby cries when he picks him up. He doesn't think the baby likes him. Kate says you have to warn him first because he can't see, you have to talk to him first. She demonstrates, picking him up and telling him she's giving him to Kevin.

The girls encourage Kate to go meet some guy behind the snack shack to kiss him. She finds Stewart back there and the girls laugh. Stewart is really into her but says they can just stand there for a minute. Kate decides to kiss him.
