Episode Summary

EDIT
The Ties That Bind
AIRED:

Lindsay reluctantly leaves Gus with Brian while she goes out of town for a conference. David's 12-year-old son Hank comes for a visit that David has planned down to the very minute. Jack tells Brian he has cancer and only has a few more months. Hank tells Michael he didn't want to visit, that he's only here because his mother made him. Debbie advises Brian to be honest with his father before he dies. Brian leaves Gus with Justin so he can go to the Leather Ball at Babylon, a move that will earn him angry castigations from both Melanie and Lindsay. Ted discovers that a former business school classmate is an award-winning "Leather Daddy" whose house includes a dungeon-themed playroom. Ted refuses Dale's proposal to be his "slave." Michael thinks Hank hates visiting his father because he's gay, but it's really because of David's itineraries and over-planning. The two end up bonding over a mutual love for comic books. Brian comes out to his father, and almost punches him when Jack says he's the one who should be dying. Finally fed up with being so predictable, Ted returns to Dale's and surrenders himself over to him. Jack seems to be in a better mood when he comes to see Brian again, but tells him not to tell his mother he's gay. Lindsay and Brian introduce Jack to his grandson.
