JJ travels to a film festival where he's been nominated for an award but is upset when he learns the real reason he's being honored. Jimmy stays home and struggles to protect Dylan from the truth about an impending eviction. And Ray takes an unlikely and painful route to basketball stardom in hopes of winning back Taylor.
JJ is nominated by two film festivals for his horror project. The first one in Vancouver chose him specifically for his disability out of tokenism; because Maya sent letters out. They return home. Jimmy tries to not get the kids worried about eviction by telling Dylan he is hunting a coyote but reveals the truth. Ray lets himself take falls in basketball to try and impress Taylor but ultimately decides to let her go and improve himself. JJ wins at a local film festival that had no idea he had a disability. The Dimeos and Kenneth resolve to figure out where to live with all their stuff on the front lawn.
