As requested, Max meets with Kathryn and Caden at the house. Although he knows their intention is to talk and have it out, Max has no intention of having a talk with them, he wanting to frame this get-together as just a family dinner to anyone who knows they are meeting, that ruse despite their last family dinner being twenty years ago, the specific date which Kathryn remembers in it being the day before a milestone in their life as a family unit. While Kathryn and Caden want to confront Max about his deceit as the cause of many of their problems as a unit, Caden further wants to confront him about his hypocrisy in expecting Caden to keep certain of his secrets while he happily exploits the secrets of others in his newspapers. Those secrets originate in part from Max's hate/admiration with his deceased father, Pennsylvania steel magnate Walter Finch, Max who tailored Walter's parenting style in his belief of what worked and didn't work in how he in turn has parented Caden.
