Cole and his mother have a heart-warming reconciliation. She apologizes for not defending Cole against his father, and she says that she has stopped drinking and separated from father. Cole comments that this is the first time that she has ever really opened up to him, and the two hug. Much like her son. Cole’s mother had to take ownership of her own issues and change her life before she could help Cole.
