Did Archie Cheat On Edith?

Before going to bed, Edith was sitting on the couch in a sad mood, and Archie entered. Edith tries to ask him a question, so she stands up and picks up a note with a phone number. She asks him about the number. Archie says he does not know and asks if his note was it. Edith smells it. Now, she is sure that it was Archie’s note. He took the phone number of someone. Archie resists again, saying that he doesn’t know. Then Edith calls on that number, but Archie stops her and starts telling her the truth.

He says that Edith was often leaving him alone at the house, so one day, he took a walk around the apartment and streets. He met a waitress around a cafe or something where he used to eat once a month or so. She called him, and she had two bags of groceries which was heavy, and Archie helped her. Then he said that they had a good time together, wine and stuff. Now, Edith was shocked and upset. Archie further asked her not to cry and not to make a big deal out of it.

He raised his voice and started narrating everything again (a little faster), and in the flow, he said a ‘harmless kiss’. That means Archie and the waitress kissed too. Edith seems to be very confused, sad, and heartbroken. She left the house saying that she could always count on Archie, but now she can not count on him. It hits hard here! Edith arrives at her daughter Gloria’s house. Gloria asks her mother not to worry so much, but Edith says she isn’t worried; she’s just thinking about her uncle’s watch.

Both Gloria and Michael were shocked and later realized that Edith might not know that Archie cheated on her. When Gloria and Mickael tried to open up in front of her, she said that she knew about the other woman. On top of everything, Edith isn’t angry or worried anymore, and that is what is more shocking for Gloria and Mickael.
