The family, minus Ali, continues their trip through Israel, their next stop after the Bedouin village being the Dead Sea. Maura, believing that she will never see Moshe again after they head back to the States, tries to have a heart to heart with her father. The result of that talk leads to Maura turning to Shelly. Sarah has been deeply affected by their visit with Lila's mother, namely in feeling like Lila, the young, pretty one, is Len's preferred sex partner in their threesome, leaving Sarah believing she will be left out in the cold. Josh's conversations with Nitzan lead to a new experience for Josh, which in turn results in Shelly having an emotional meltdown over her relationships with the individual family members. Meanwhile, Ali reconsiders her decision to abandon and family and thus wants to meet up with them at the Dead Sea. Getting there from the West Bank has its own challenges, with Ali needing to make a crucial decision along the way. Written by Huggo
