But when Jason’s mother revealed she’s a lesbian, Jason’s father was banished from the church and had to take several jobs to feed his family.

  2. What a sweet, lost soul. I was crushed at the very end when it said he was drinking again. I truly hope he was/is able to keep it under control. This episode really touched me, especially the older sister who mothered her siblings after the mom left.

  3. I thought it said he has been sober since 2008? I found him to be very attractive at the end of the episode!
