On election night, they see each other from across the room. Unfortunately, after their short-lived effort at cohabitation, Zoe feels unable to continue their relationship. So, she ends things.
But when she sees Kevin leave the event, she feels the need to follow him. She’s clearly had a change of heart and tells him he’s one of the only people who knows about what her father did to her when she was young. She explains that it’s harder for her to give up her “safe space” than most people, and while she does want to live with him, it’s hard for her to open up. Nonetheless, she likes what he’s pushing her toward, she loves him and she wants John Stamos back (the key, not the devastatingly handsome man). They go home, and in perfect rom-com fashion, they unpack her literal baggage together.
During this sweet moment, Zoe accidentally unpacks one of Jack’s old boxes and finds a postcard from “C.K.” Kevin realizes that it’s from his Uncle Nick (aka Clark Kent) and that Jack knew he was alive all along. Luckily, there’s a return address. Dun, dun, dun!
Next Tuesday, January 22, at 9 p.m ET/PT, we peel back the onion that is Uncle Nicky with season three, episode 11.
