In the tenth episode of season 5, called ‘I’ve Got This,’ we see Beth extremely worked up that her mother Carol is staying with them because Beth constantly feels judged. She prepares a special dinner as a send-off for Carol, but the evening soon spirals out of control. Déjà is upset because Malik speaks to Randall about his situation with Jennifer before talking to her. After snapping at Beth several times, Tess reveals that she is dating Alex. Beth has a heart-to-heart conversation with her mother and apologizes for her behavior, which results in Carol’s decision to stay with them “indefinitely.”
Kate and Toby go over to Kevin and Madison’s house for dinner, which also takes an uncomfortable turn. Toby is fed up because he is not landing a job, but Kevin talks all evening about his plans for the house and what he wants to do for the kids. Toby loses his patience and snaps when Kevin suggests paying for daycare for Nicky, Franny, Jack, and Hailey. Toby says that he does not need Kevin to pay for his kids. To add to this, Toby thinks that Kate told her brother about their financial situation, although she did not.
Kevin ensures that Kate feels comfortable asking him for help. When they reach home, Kate decides to start working and lovingly reassures Toby that everything will fall in place. A flashback sequence reveals that Jack and Rebecca had been through a similar situation where Rebecca had to take over the responsibility of making financial decisions. This happens because of a dinner that Jack and Miguel attend with their bosses.
