Sandy says he can avoid it by telling the truth. Caleb says he cant because of the child. Sandy says you mean Lindsay? Sandy says hes not trying to protect Lindsay; hes trying to protect himself.

Seth is busy putting up his decorations, and he says the menorah is looking a little waxy and asks his mom to shine it. Ryan and Kirsten bring the tree in, and Ryan asks Seth for a little help.

He still doesnt know as it could be rushing things. 

On Jimmys boat, Jimmy and Julie are going at it hot and heavy. Julie says its been so long since they did this. Jimmy says its like riding a bike. Julie asks if this counts as adultery?

Sandy meets up with Renee in some public place. Sandy talks to her about coming forward. He says he knows she thinks shell lose her daughter by coming forward, but she may lose her anyway. He says the DA has enough evidence to put her away for accepting bribes, because that is what they think is going on. She doesnt know if she can admit to her daughter that she lied to her for her whole life. Sandy says Caleb wont come forward, he cant, so she is their last hope. She says she cant, and walks off.

At school, Ryan meets up with Lindsay for a study session, and he tells her about Christmukah. Lindsay says she and her mom dont even buy a tree anymore, it looked so sad with only two gifts under it.

Kirsten says nothing, Julie herself said they were getting along better. Kirsten asks her if she is okay because she looks frazzled. She says she just hasnt had time to blow her hair out. 

Ryan works on his homework in the Cohen kitchen, and Seth talks to him about how awesome Christmukah will be with Marissa and Summer coming. Ryan says woah woah woah! Ryan says he invited Lindsay after all, and this is going to be weird. Seth says oh no, what if the backlash is starting. He says Christmukah is just getting too big and commercial. He begins ranting about how the government will soon want more holidays like Eastover. They go outside where Sandy is working on the grill. Seth says they have a problem, Ryan invited Lindsay over tomorrow and he invited Marissa and Summer. Sandy doesnt like this idea, and Ryan says he didnt mean to impose. Sandy says its not that, it is just uh . . . He asks Ryan how serious it is between them. Ryan says its still a mystery, more of a suspense. Seth says he wants to see her naked. Sandy says so you really like her, and Ryan says hes starting to. Sandy says her mom is involved with Calebs case, so the timing probably isnt great. Ryan says okay, but wonders what Lindsay has to do with the case. Seth jokes that shes Calebs illegitimate love child! Sandy gives them a look, and they realize she is.
