Tonight’s storylines swing the spotlight onto the families’ futures. Claire’s minor heart incident means she has to go to hospital, where the bed next to her is occupied by a man whose grown-up children bear a horrifying resemblance to how Haley, Alex and Luke could end up. “It’s coming from the future – and it ain’t pretty,” warns Phil. “I don’t understand, in the future I’m not pretty?” replies a puzzled Haley.
Meanwhile, Manny has an interview at a prep school that could take him on a very different path to his blue-collar dad; and little Lily declares that she is gay, prompting
a series of flustered reactions from Mitch that horrify himself more than anyone.
Phil and Claire visit hospital, where they get an unexpected - and frightening - glimpse of the future, while Mitch, Cam and Sofia take Lily to a Vietnamese restaurant to introduce her to her Asian roots. Jay struggles to put his prejudices aside when he accompanies Manny on a tour of a prospective private school.
