The scene opens with Elizabeth and Phillip at the dinner table with Paige and Henry. Elizabeth says that they need to talk. She tells them that Phillip is going to be sleeping somewhere else for a while. Paige thinks that it is a joke, but Elizabeth says that they have been fighting a lot. Paige and Henry don’t like it and Paige says that it is all Elizabeth’s fault. That evening, Phillip tries to talk to Henry, but he is not interested in opening the door. Phillip tells Henry that he loves him. Phillip gathers his things and tells her that he will see her tomorrow at the Beeman’s. She doesn’t think it is a good idea, but Phillip says that Beeman’s work friends are going to be there and so they should be there. She reluctantly agrees. The next day at the party, Paige ignores her parents. Elizabeth asks where Phillip is staying and he says that he is in a hotel. She says that it is for the best. Phillip clearly doesn’t agree...

Episode Notes
Because this episode was longer than the usual 60 minutes, FX Networks publicity department should have provided that information to every television guide service so DVRs would make sure to record the entire episode. This did not happen so anyone who DVRed the episode missed the last 7 minutes. FX renamed the episode as "Safe House (Extended Ending)" for subesquent airings to ensure DVRs would record it and viewers would not automatically delete it.
