While Luke works with the New Avengers to bust a Yakuza operation, Jessica sends him a text saying he has found their son.

Mrs. Lucas tells her that James Lucas does not want to talk to his son. Jessica asks if James is doing all right, and she says he is still recovering from the death of Luke's brother, James Lucas, Jr. Luke shows up and catches of glimpse of his father, who still refuses to speak. On their way home, Luke and Jessica stop at a nearby Dairy Queen and embrace.
