    Maybe he wasn't truly that into her Probably knowing he wasn't one of chosen ones, his son was an excuse to leave.

    That last part is exactly what I was thinking.

    Perhaps he had never been away from his son for that amount of time before. I'm not sure, but if it were me I can completely understand being that upset and realizing how much you want to see your child, especially at such a young age. We never know how things will affect us until they do. I will give him a pass on this one.

    She was talking with him, and it was as if she was mothering him ( or being big sister to him) Zero chemistry that's for sure ZERO

    He could have missed his son.

    ITA. Its not like Tony was being deployed to Afghanistan and his son was in the hospital or even that his son was crying for daddy to come home.

    I'd say he knew he didn't have a chance so it was a way to rip the band-aid off quickly.

    Watching the scene again where he calls home and talks to his son during the group date, I admit I felt kind of sorry for him. Sure, maybe he was getting the impression he wasn't going to be her F1, and maybe he just wanted out, I don't know, but let me tell you...my girls are 11 and sometimes when they are away from me, at a sleep over or whatever, suddenly I miss them so badly I am floored by how intense that feeling is. It's not something to be ashamed of, in my eyes. I know they are well, and happy, and they don't need me so I'm ok with them being gone. When they were 5 though, to spend that much time apart from them? Nope, I don't think I could do it. So I feel for him.

    I am with Sweetpea on this one. My son is 13 and sometimes I miss him terribly right after I drop him off at school lol. It's a fleeting feeling, but still, it happens on occasion. I know that I would never have chosen to be apart for more than a few days when he was 5 though, much less with the possibility of not seeing him for several months. Tony was homesick. Emily made the right choice and was being compassionate by giving him an out to get back to his kidlet.

    Just wait, y'all. Mine are 18 and 20 and the day you have to take them to college in another state and then drive off and LEAVE THEM THERE will kill you. Even if you know full well that they are completely prepared and ready to go, you'll leave a big chunk of your heart there with them. You're both extremely proud and in agony at the same time. It's how gray hair was invented.

    I don't think I ever left my kids when they were 5, not even for overnights at Grandma's. Every individual child probably handles the situation differently, at their own speed. But parents are all saps.

    Tony needed to go home.
