David shows up, and is told off by Violet who accuses him for Joanna’s condition; Davis instead claims he had a wakeup call after Violet talked to his wife at the airport. He also claims that he has been getting help, with things like anger management and therapy. He swears he didn't beat her. Pete too physically prevents David from coming anywhere close to Joanna.
