Carol tries to persuade her new mom, Gail, to wear a matching outfit for a family photo for Christmas cards. It’s a hard pass for Gail. After Gail walks off, Lewis suggests that the three of them (Carol, Gail, and Tandy) just wear regular clothing so that Gail will actually agree to it. He thanks Tandy for their trip in the previous episode.

Todd sees Melissa with a baby doll. He greets the doll, Alden, as if it were a real baby, because Melissa has been kind of losing her mind recently. Melissa says that the doll isn’t real, but then immediately starts patting the baby’s face and saying “Shhhhh, mommy didn’t mean it.” Todd refers to himself as Melissa’s boyfriend, and she breaks up with him because he doesn’t want a baby.

Carol and Tandy attempt to sneak attack Gail with a matching family photo by wearing clothes similar to what Gail already has on. Gail refuses to open her eyes for the picture. They follow her down the hall, but she doesn’t open her eyes until she steps in the elevator without them.

Lewis practices in a flight simulator. He wants to get good enough at it so that someday he can fly a real plane to Tokyo to look for his partner, Mark, in case he’s alive but unable to get back to the U.S. He tells this to an inquiring, hormonal Erica, and she cries over how beautiful it is.

When Tandy checks on Melissa, she tells him to take off his pants so they can make a baby. He reminds her that he is married to Carol, so he can’t, but she reminds him that the plan back in Tucson, before Todd came along, was for Tandy to get both women pregnant in order to start repopulating the planet. Melissa kicks him out of her room once she sees he’s not interested.

Tandy tries to ask Carol about the Melissa/Lewis situation, and Carol snaps, saying that sometimes a lady just needs her space. It clicks for her that that’s how Gail has been feeling too. She leaves to apologize to “mom.”

Drunk Gail finds a good place for “mam’s hideaway,” since Carol knows about her other hideaway, the roof.

Tandy finds Lewis. He fails at small talk and then asks when Melissa had asked Lewis to impregnate her. It was after breakfast, early that morning.

Lewis discovers that the electricity in this building is being shared with the other four buildings on the lot. He turns the power off to those other buildings, in order to save on power. Little do they know that Gail is currently stuck in the elevator of one of those other buildings.

Melissa fishes Alden out of a pond and scolds him for swimming too soon after eating.  Todd tries to make amends with Melissa by giving in and pretending to be Red from The Shawshank Redemption. She’s confused about what he’s doing. Then he gets real and says that he’s going to be there for her, even when she pushes him away.

They run through the building until they get to Melissa’s room, where Melissa’s ‘baby’ sits on the bed with a card that says ‘goodbye.’

Gail hears something outside of the elevator and pounds on the door. It’s just a Roomba though. No one has any idea where Gail is.

No LMOE this week, but it’s back December 4th at 9/8c with “Whitney Houston, We Have a Problem” where hopefully the group will find Gail and Melissa.
