The Panthers are preparing yet again for another game they can't afford to lose. Jason (Scott Porter) still finds it difficult to adjust to life at home, and the feelings he still has for Lyla (Minka Kelly) don't make it any easier. Meanwhile, at what couldn't seem like a better time, Matt's (Zach Gilford) dad comes home from Iraq, but the homecoming is not what Matt expected. To make situations even more complicated, UT has taken an interest in Coach Taylor, whose popularity continues to grow, and Smash becomes more and more dependent on unnatural substances to keep up with the competition. With all the drama off the field mounting, the players work even harder to get a victory.

Mattís father returns home after duty in Iraq, much to the delight of Matt who hopes his father stays around to help with his grandmother who suffers from dementia. Unfortunately for Matt, his fatherís visit is short, and he plans on returning to duty to continue serving his country. The heroic figure Matt saw his father as is slowly dimming in place of a man he no longer knows, or at least, he thought he knew.
The politics behind why Mattís father wants to return are simple yet complex. He believes that his duty to his country is more important because it involves protecting Matt from outside threats, which in his view Iím sure, are far more dangerous than domestic affairs. Itís a difficult moment for Matt who now fully realizes that he is alone, and seems to care more for his grandmother than his father does.
His fatherís solution is to send her to nursing home and Matt to go off to Oklahoma where heíll live with his aunt. But Matt disagrees, understandably, and wants to have a nurse help, which the father refuses. Itís a shame to see Matt put in a situation in which he canít win; on the one hand he needs help taking care of his grandmother and really does not want to do alone, yet the only opportunity heís has for help requires that he give her up and move away, which he canít, or rather, will not do out of love for his grandmother. Zach Gilford is really a standout among the FNL cast.
Meanwhile, Jason and Lyla rekindle their romances after running into each other at a record store. After some flirting, the two head back to Jasonís room where they engage in sex, at least, they try. Jason is unable to perform, his body still healing. He speaks with Herc, who after a little Lyla bashing, tells the former quarterback that he has to be patience and relearn how to use his body again.
There was a sweet although uncomfortable moment between Lyla and Jason as she brings a self help video for those who suffer with Jasonís problem. It was a nice gesture, and clearly shows her love for him, but it wasnít exactly what he was looking for.
A new duo has emerged this week in the form of Tim and Landry provided some of the best moments in the episode. After discovering Tim was cheating on his tests, Tami arranges for Landry to become his tutor, an assignment neither Tim nor Landry are too thrilled about. It was the Of Mice and Men relationship. But the two strike up a genuine friendship. Both actors do a terrific job playing off each other with Timís calm, indifferent disposition against Landryís sarcastic and socially awkward demeanor providing us with some entertaining one liners.
On the field, the Panthers win another game, but no thanks to Matt who was clearly distracted by his father issues. Eric had no choice but to pull him out of the game, saying ďitís just not your night.Ē He didnít give him a hard time or school Matt; he knew already what was going on and simply told him to take a seat for the night. After a heated argument in the parking lot with his father, Matt returned home with the Taylor explaining to Eric his family issues.
