Recap

The episode begins with Sherman and another officer in a parking lot full of scantily clad women. The girl, who is flirting with the officer, pulls out the gun from his holster and starts firing shots in the air. Cut to 17 hours earlier, we hear a baby crying. Lydia wakes up and her mother walks into her room with her baby. Lydia complains to her mother about the lack of breast milk. Cooper wakes up and his boyfriend tells him about moving in together. Cooper doesn’t seem to be too excited. His boyfriend is clearly upset. He says that they have been together for years and all that they have been doing is banging each other. ..
