When Shelly's husband Ed goes missing, Sarah, Josh and Ali set out to find him, and instead find themselves lost in their past. Ali can no longer keep Maura's secret from Josh, which sends him into a tailspin. When Maura runs into a Pfefferman family friend she takes a stand for her new identity.

I'm beginning to suspect that Ali is right about her siblings being sociopaths. Or right about Josh, at least.

Sociopaths is a bit harsh (I've seen it in at least one pro review). I think the series has a thesis statement in the pilot when Maura laments having raised children so self-absorbed he can't even reach them, and there's another when Ali has a bit of a rant in the last but we can talk about that there. And there's an incident later where it's clear that all three kids are, indeed, capable of shooting off in their own directions even when it's very important (at least to Maura) that they not do so.

I don't know about full blown sociopaths, but mostly sociopaths. Especially Josh.
