What Happened in Episode 7?

Episode 7 had some disappointing conclusions for Hank’s character. He was angry at Oily for taking the NY job unconsciously, which he himself learned when she left the house. Russell, Julie’s husband, was found out for cheating on her with Meg Quigley, Billie’s daughter.

Lily had an epiphany while looking for apartments in NY. She realized that Hank does not want to grow as a person and keeps giving her false starts to do so. The big decisions that she now thinks about in life do not involve Hank and she will probably divorce him.

Hank inadvertently got answers about why Henry deserted him, which made Hank realize his own failings as a father. Also, the English department at Railton College is set to be downsized in the finale as the union’s plans fail.

We’ve got the whole episode covered with a lengthy recap, along with an accompanying review of said chapter. You can find that below:
