Hello Tomorrow! Episode 4 Ending: Will Jack Tell Joey the Truth?
For a long time, Jack’s life had been the same. He would go from town to town offering non-existent condos to folks who had no idea they were being scammed. Things only change when he learns about the situation of his estranged family.
His wife is in a coma following an accident and his son, whom he hasn’t seen for well over two decades is so directionless that he wants to give up all of his money to buy a place for himself on the Moon.
As Joey’s father, Jack(Billy Crudup) attempts to be there for him without truly giving him the truth because he is aware of Joey’s animosity toward him for never being there for him. When Jack eventually becomes Joey’s father, it is under the pretext of an act.
Joey wants to impress his girlfriend’s father, and now that he has been schooled as a salesman, he is quick on his feet to make up things to market himself as the ideal match, and he drags Jack into his falsehoods, unaware that they are both telling the truth about at least one item.
Shirley catches the path with the girl who confesses that Jack is Joey’s father as Jack and Joey are trying to persuade the father. This changes things for Shirley because she finally realizes why Jack has been acting strangely, especially when it comes to Joey.
She later sympathizes with Jack and advises him to tell Joey the truth. Jack plans to talk to his kid that night, but when the moment comes, he is not able to do so.
Jack has finally found a semblance of the relationship he desired with his son, and he knows that once Joey discovers the truth, things will change between them. Joey harbours years of resentment towards his father, which Jack is afraid to confront.
But he also knows that the longer he waits, the more difficult it will be to communicate the truth and the harsher Joey’s reaction will be. For the time being, though, they have additional issues that could become an immediate source of concern.
