In Living, Jack is staying in the house with the hammock. It's where Grandma and Steppa live. Jack says that Dr. Clay wanted Jack to remain at Cumberland but Grandma argued that he has family, and Jack moved to Grandma's house. Jack questions Grandma relentlessly, asking about Ma's condition and why she took too many of the pills. Jack has Ma's Bad Tooth in his cheek and he sucks on it for comfort as he struggles to believe Ma is alive.
