He feels very upset and goes to his daughter’s school where parents and kids are upset over a sex education class. Maya becomes curious and asks Will about how he met her mom.

One day, he bumps into a fellow campaign worker named April and the two strike up a conversation. Will informs her that he plans to propose to Emily when she comes to visit and he begrudgingly practices his proposal on April. Her response is definitely maybe.

The next day he proposes to Emily but she says no because she slept with his roommate. April goes off to travel abroad, Emily returns to Wisconsin and Will keeps in contact with April via postcards and letters.
