Synopsis for "New Song for Old"

Sam goes home to visit his family, and is worried about how his mom will react to Lila Cheney, his girlfriend, who will be joining them for dinner one night. His brother Josh is resentful of him. He goes to see Lila that evening; Lila has brought something to give Sam's mother, but its obviously valuable so Sam thinks she stoles it and they part angry. Sam confronts Josh, but Josh doesn't want to hear it. Eventually they come to an understanding. Later, Lila crashes her plane and Sam takes Josh with him to see if she survived. He finds out Lila made the item herself from Ali, and begs her forgiveness. Finally, Lila comes over to the Guthrie house for dinner.
