Fern, Lux's social worker meets with Cate and Baze after Bug and Lux are picked up by the police. Cate tries to get Bug a job at the radio station, but her boss will not hire him as he wasn't as experienced as he needed to be. She becomes enraged after finding out Baze hires Bug, accusing him of undermining her attempts to make things right with Lux, since Lux became greatly upset that Cate said she could get him a job, but didn't. Lux tearfully tells her parents the truth about her feelings towards Cate's lack of concern while she was in foster care.


After Lux and Bug are picked up by the police for a curfew violation, Lux's social worker, Fern, decides it's time to meet with Cate and Baze to reevaluate their custody of Lux.

During a meeting with Fern, Cate, Baze and Lux agree to put on a happy face to ensure that Lux isn't placed back in the foster care system. However, Fern sees through the phony happy faces, and threatens to take away custody from Cate and Baze. 

Meanwhile, in an attempt to show Lux that she supports her, Cate offers to find Bug a job at her radio station, but winds up disappointing Lux once again.  Baze, however again, comes through for his daughter, by offering him a job at the Open Bar. 

During the meeting, Lux finally admits that she really blames Cate for the years of being in foster care, and tells Cate that she cannot forgive her. "You gave me away to NOTHING, like I didn't even MATTER!" she cries in fury and tears. After an extremely hurt Lux storms out, Fern realizes that Baze, Cate and Lux are bonding and becoming a family, warts and all.  She doesn't take custody from the parents, and she even believes that they should go and get their parental rights reinstated. Fern tells her parents that it was a real risk for Lux to tell Cate that, because she was really risking losing both her and Baze all over again.  Both parents assure Fern that Lux wouldn't have to worry about losing them ever again.

It takes Ryan, persuaded by Cate and Baze to help, to help get through to a heartbroken Lux, who eventually comes back to Cate's home. Baze and Lux have a heart-to-heart, and she realizes that she needs to go back to Cate's home. Cate welcomes her back taking her in her arms and holding her, and Ryan also moves back in with his fiancee.
