Storyline

When Reese visits Beth at her house, he finds out that she's cheating on him with Malcolm. Distraught, he runs away and joins the Army with the other broken hearted males. Meanwhile, Hal is arrested by the FBI, for refusing to testify against his former co-worker for various dishonest acts against the company he works for. Lois is on the brink of insanity and she loses her job as a result. She gives into her insanity and takes a cold shower with her clothes on. This forces Francis and Piama to be the disciplinarians and the breadwinners of their family. Malcolm is ridden with guilt for what happened and tries to find Reese by himself. Then a unidentified officer ridden with cancer, decides to help clear Hal's name. Written by Anonymous
