The Story

"Valentine's Day. What's the point?" These are the words Nora Walker sends to all her loyal listeners out there in radioland. She's obviously not a fan of February 14th this year. Sarah wants her mother to dial back her anti-Cupid attitude. She says, "You've gone dark. I need you to get your ‘mom' back." Easier said than done.

Rose is obsessed about finding more information on Brody, the mystery man from Nora's past. Tommy begs her to just let things be. Yeah, that's not gonna happen. She can't help wondering if there's a chance this guy may be Sarah's real father. By the way, Rose isn't the only one doing Google searches on Brody. Nora's been digging up info on the guy, too.

Sarah gets a little ticked when Tommy starts negotiations to buy a book company without briefing her on the project first. They get into a little verbal spat in which Tommy blurts out Rose's suspicions about Brody possibly being her father. As you can imagine, Nora is completely peeved. Sarah is off to see Rose, where she learns the original copy of her birth certificate is missing William Walker's signature. Uh oh.

Luc is preparing an extravagant meal for Sarah even though she would probably prefer chili dogs for her Valentine's Day dinner. Hey, who wouldn't? When Luc realizes he's missing a key ingredient for his main course, Justin helps him set up a candlelit dinner for two. Sound nice, right? Oh, did we mention the candles are flickering in a couple of beer bottles on a table that's smack dab in the middle of a bowling alley? When Sarah calls saying she's been delayed, Justin laces up a pair of always-stylish bowling shoes but Luc heads home.

Sarah calls an emergency family meeting at the bowling alley minus Nora. The Walker brothers all feel their big sis is making something out of nothing. Sarah doesn't see it that way and storms out of the alley. She heads straight over to her mom's. Nora admits that she slept with Brody one time, but she also says a blood test proved William was, indeed, her dad. Whew.

Sarah isn't sure if she should believe Nora. Luc seems to be the only one who is giving her the support she needs. That's pretty amazing considering the fact that he feels she continually shuts him out of all the things that are happening in her life. Sarah promises that she'll try to share more in the future.

Rose feels horrible for all the strife her curiosity has caused. Nora believes she should feel bad. She says, "You can't bring this family down. We've been through a lot worse and we're still here. We're screaming at each other, but we're still here." After Nora vents, she tells Rose the secret to surviving in this family is to get over the bumps in the road and have a glass of wine. The only question is…red or white?

Saul wants Jonathan to keep dinner plans with food critic Edward LeMonde so the restaurant has a better chance of getting a positive review. But jealousy soon rears its ugly head. Another problem arises when Jonathan orders a dish containing an ingredient he's allergic to. Moments later, both Jonathan and the critic are gone. Saul and Jonathan end up making nice and they both finally admit aloud that they are interested in each other. Jonathan exits the restaurant once again, but this time it's with Saul at his side.

At the end of a long day, Tommy and Rose finally have a nice little Valentine's Day celebration. Kevin and Scotty do the same. Nora goes back on the radio with a slightly more upbeat attitude than she had earlier. As for Sarah, she's obviously still concerned. Why do we say this? Well, she's waiting outside the office of a person she's never met. The name on the door reads "Brody."
