Dell must head out for a late night delivery. There appears to be tension in the room as he and Heather cross in the hall. Dell promises Betsey he’ll tuck her in when he gets home. As he slumps down in the driver’s seat of his car, we can tell something’s wrong. Then...BOOM! An explosion rocks the night. Dell turns to see his house in flames, with Heather and Betsey still inside.
We jump back seven hours earlier as Addison’s high-maintenance mother, Bizzy (guest star JoBeth Williams), arrives in town. Later that night, Addison tells Sam that her mother and father look fine, but that would be creepy because nothing is ever fine. Sam’s phone rings, his face tenses. It’s Dell.
