Ben of course comes in while JoJo’s on the phone with this charming devil Chad, and she assures Ben that Chad is OVER, although I can’t gather why. That settled, however wrongly, it’s time to go meet JoJo’s Dad JoeJoe, Mom Seraya, Sister Rachel, and Brothers The More and More Intoxicated and Useless Cross Examination Crew. The story here is that Mom has had some work done, Dad is won over way too quickly, and the Brothers are possibly in love in weird ways they shouldn’t be with their sister.
“We’re REALLY attached to Joelle,” they say, proving that they know her better because they use her full name she chose to abandon. “WE are her parental figures.” “Have you been coached to give these blandly meaningless answers?” “Joelle comes from a family that’s close. VERY CLOSE.” “Have you brainwashed her?” “Do you know which American Girl doll she had at age 7? Because we do!!!”
Ben seems on the verge of losing it, and attempts to turn the tables. “Am I that evil, where I have planned this all out, where I just want to get your sister to a point where she's falling for me, and then I would break her heart on purpose, just because I like to watch people get hurt??” he asks. And then never says, “no, no I’m not”. He just lets it sit there. Ben, who to this point has been incapable of evil because Ben is boring and evil is anything but, has realized that everything he just said was true.
