We pick up this week’s episode of A Million Little Things with a flashback to two years ago. The gang is all over at Delilah and Jon’s place for pizza night — a Friday night tradition that Jon started, making pizza in a brick oven in their yard. (The houses on this show might be the best part.) Delilah’s dad is there too. He has memory problems, so Jon habitually asks him to tell the story of how Jon and D met to keep him on his toes. For anyone interested, Jon and Delilah had their meet-cute at an airport; she was going to Paris, he was going to L.A. In the present day, Delilah spots the pizza peel in her kitchen and moves it to a less obvious spot, unable to deal with the memories and guilt. When Sophie notices its new location, she’s mad at her mom for trying to erase her dad from their lives. Is Delilah wrong for trying to move forward? Or should the family stick to old traditions to keep the memory of Jon alive? Let’s find out.
A little later, Gary comes over and calls Delilah out for avoiding the restaurant — or more likely avoiding Regina who still isn’t talking to her since she found out about the affair. Unable to stand the girls’ fallout, Gary and Rome plot to get the two women together to fix things. They stage a reunion at the restaurant but when Delilah walks in, Regina can’t hide her anger and disappointment. Luckily, Rome takes the hammer Gina’s been using to knock down walls out of her hand. D tries to explain to her friend that there were things about her marriage Regina didn’t know, that Jon was distant for the last two years and she felt invisible, but Eddie saw her. Regina’s mad that she didn’t share that with her at the time because then she could’ve been there for her. She even goes as far as to suggest that Jon is dead because of Delilah’s actions. Upset, Delilah leaves, telling Regina to do the restaurant without her.
Over at Katherine and Eddie’s place, things aren’t much better. Katherine tells Eddie she doesn’t know where they go from there (her finding out he’s been cheating on her with Delilah) because she doesn’t even know how they got there. But she realizes she can’t just blame Eddie and Delilah for their problems; their marriage was broken long before that. To help provide some context, Eddie flashes back to performing with his band the Red Ferns. He comes backstage between songs, where the whole gang is excitedly hanging out, and downs a drink before kissing a pregnant Katherine. In another flashback we see his drinking has gotten progressively worse; he’s drunk in a bar when Katherine goes into labor. Later, in a “six months ago” bit, we see that Eddie has kicked drinking when Delilah’s forgetful father offers him some sangria and Jon reprimands him over it. Delilah is mad at her husband for embarrassing her dad, but he walks off to take a work call. Delilah’s all, of course, you have work to deal with right now.
Back in the present, Sophie comes over to Eddie and Katherine’s place for an impromptu guitar lesson with Eddie, but since he’s not home, she ends up talking to Katherine about how her mom is dealing with Jon’s death. Then Eddie comes back from visiting a bar he used to frequent (he didn’t drink this time, just talked to an old acquaintance about reforming the band he was kicked out of) and he and Katherine discuss their relationship. Eddie tells her she was always the strong one and he put her in a position she never asked to be. (Recap continues on page 2.)
