Main Plot

Jane and Lucas' father comes back to town. The whole family, much to Jane's chagrin, is excited that he is back in their lives. Jane is suspicious about her father, but she can't quite understand why. When she finally remembers what he did to her as a little girl, she feels uncomfortable.

Sub Plot

Meanwhile, Leia feels that she doesn't fit in with Danny's friends. So, Leia makes up lies, such as Sav coming on to her, and tells them to Danny. She has to lie to impress them and says that her dad is a huge music producer for bands such as Fall Out Boy and Aerosmith. They go to a show, and Leia is really embarrassed when the truth comes out. Danny decides to stay with her, but his friends completely cut her out.
