Adam think things are going pretty good for him.
He’s dating the coolest girl in school, he’s hanging out with his friends every night, and he hasn’t felt this good in a long time. Unfortunately, his mean streak is rearing it’s ugly head.
He makes one comment at Fallon, and suddenly things start snowballing. He tries to backtrack, but it’s only making things worse, and now Fallon is shouting.
She asks him why he has to be this way, why he can’t just be cool. I let them go. This clearly isn’t the first time Adam’s made a mean remark that’s rubbed her the wrong way, and now they’re arguing.
He pretends not to care. Dismissing people’s moods seems the fastest way to get them angry at you, and Fallon’s already mad. She tells him if he’s so darn apathetic, he clearly doesn’t care about her, and maybe they shouldn’t be together if that’s the case. Adam quickly tries to apologize, but Fallon’s had it.
They’re done, she says. They’re broken up. Don’t talk to her again, don’t hang around. Goodbye. Forever.
Adam’s on a rampage now. He stomps back home only to find his dad has made them dinner and wants to have a conversation. He’s not in the mood.
Roman’s ready to tell his son about having a girlfriend, but he chose the wrong day for it. As soon as he tries to tell Adam about Payton, Adam flips out.
Adam’s angry about his dad keeping a secret, he’s angry about his dad moving on, and he’s angry about Fallon, and maybe he’s angry at himself. Their conversation turns into an argument pretty quick. Roman’s still trying to keep his son calm, but Adam won’t listen.
Roman tells him he’s too old to act like this. Adam immediately shuts down. He doesn’t want to listen to his dad talk about his girlfriend when he doesn’t have one anymore. He tells him he doesn’t want to talk anymore.
This isn’t how Roman pictured this conversation going. His son refuses to say any more to him. So far his fresh start isn’t going so great.
