Randall, thankfully, scares the man with the knife off (yep, it turns out he’s real), but the rest of the family is definitely spooked. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) tries to reassure the girls that nothing bad will happen to them and Tess (Eris Baker) tells Annie (Faithe Herman) that Randall scared him away with his bad jokes. Still, Randall is not convinced that they’re home free and asks Beth to take the girls and stay in a hotel. Meanwhile, he’ll stay in the house until the window gets fixed and he’s sure they’re all safe.
Even though Randall is being the big strong man of the family, he’s definitely dealing with some post-traumatic stress. When a noise wakes him up, he texts Kevin to see if he’s awake. In fact, Kevin is and, of all places, he’s in Pennsylvania to attend Sophie’s mom’s funeral. Randall tells him about the break-in, accidentally mentioning that he just got home from the airport (remember, Kevin doesn’t know about Rebecca’s memory loss). Concerned, Kevin tells Randall he’s more than happy to keep him company over the phone if it’s helpful, but Randall says he’ll be fine.
The next day, Randall goes into the office and Jae-won (Tim Jo) encourages him to reschedule the Town Hall he has coming up. Randall clearly hasn’t slept and is spacey as can be. When Malik’s (Asante Blackk) dad Darnell (Omar Epps) comes to talk to him about the housing bill Randall is pushing for, he’s distracted by the alarm notifications on his phone and offends Darnell. Randall half-heartedly tries to stop him, but he storms out.
When Randall arrives home, the alarm is blaring. Thankfully, it just went off because Annie tried to open a window, but Randall is visibly shaken. That evening, he doesn’t sleep again.
