Despite growing up with Ken the ""dream stomper,"" Titus has realized his dream of building hotrods. Unfortunately, his latest client--a trendy Web designer--wants to add an oversized spoiler/wing to the top of his custom car. Even though the client is offering an insane amount of money, Titus refuses to do the addition because it will destroy the artistic integrity of his work.

When Titus gets accidentally pinned underneath the car, Tommy calls Ken to bring over a jack. While Ken takes Polaroids of his trapped son, he encourages Tommy and Dave to take advantage of the situation...and do the work on the car themselves. They do, and it's hideous.

Connie Stevens becomes the third actress (after Christine Estabrook and Frances Fisher) to play the role of Titus's mother, Juanita, who was last seen having just fatally shot her abusive husband at Titus and Erin's ill-fated wedding. Now Juanita is on trial for murder, and ex-husband Ken can't wait to testify and put her away for good. Not so Titus. She is, after all, his mom, and when Titus takes the standâ€”following some well-intentioned but highly incriminating remarks by Erin, Dave and Tommyâ€”he emphasizes the positive things he's learned from her. What later transpires during the course of the trial, however, can in no way be construed as positive.Read More
