Sometimes you just don’t come back after slapping your father in the face.
In the first part of the season two finale of Breeders, the mounting tension between Paul and Luke reached an explosive climax after Paul learned that Luke had tried to buy weeds. The young teenager kept pushing the buttons by ignoring his father’s punishment, which resulted in Paul unleashing his maddened anger in front of the entire family. During an argument, Luke said he blamed Paul’s temper for much of his years of battling anxiety and depression. Then in the heat of the moment the boy’s fist flew and he ran away.
When part 2 starts, it will be Leah and Alex’s wedding anniversary, and Luke was staying with his grandma while the situation at home cools down. We remember the night of the argument and Ally tells Paul that he was way too harsh on Luke. She admits that she has to protect her son from him like a she-bear. “Luke is vulnerable, but you are the same as always. It no longer works that Luke is who he has become. It just can’t work that way, ”Ally pleads. It’s a tough pill for Paul to swallow, but he seems to understand the gravity of the situation.
Ally confesses to Leah that she fears that something in her family may be broken. Although Paul feels that they can absolutely force Luke to come home, he doesn’t take it lightly that his own son doesn’t want to live with him. Ally suggests that Paul have a heart-to-heart with Luke at the wedding, and he promises to try to make it up to him.
Back to the present, father and son slip from the wedding to talk long overdue. Paul asks Luke what he’s up to while his grandmother is on her honeymoon. The boy says he doesn’t think he can be happy at home and that Alex is “like a father” to him. “I can’t be in the same house with you. I can’t take the anger anymore. It makes me anxious and miserable, ”he says. Unfortunately, your conversation will be interrupted before you can find a solution.
Ally later asks Paul if they spoke to each other, but the only conclusion he has come to is that he should move out a bit so her son can return home. It’s best for Luke, he tells a tearful ally. Paul says he will live with his mom and dad until things are sorted out right.
While surfing on the couch with Jim and Jackie, Paul realizes how confused their situation has become. The season ends with the family still in a broken state.
