Following the picnic debacle, Faith is holed up in a hotel room seeking solace and maybe a drink. Feeling betrayed by Yvette, she's unsure whether she wants to return to work. Meanwhile, Joel is paid a visit at the bookstore by the mysterious Avram Ben-Meier, who delivers an envelope and maybe a threat. Later that day, a shaken Joel visits his daughter Faith at her hotel, where he shares stories about Grace, Faith's deceased mother. But as the wine flows, Faith presses her father about what really goes on at the bookstore. Joel does his best to evade the issue, but in the end, he may have to tell Faith exactly what's going on - if only to save her.
