This Is Where I Leave You Chapter 2

By Jonathan Tropper

Chapter 2

  • The next day, Judd is packing up his car when a very attractive woman walks up. It's his wife Jen. Lucky Judd!
  • Jen tells Judd that she's been trying to contact him, but he doesn't respond. Then he drops the bombshell: Jen's been having an affair with Judd's boss, Wade Boulanger.
  • Hmm. Maybe not so lucky.
  • Judd has been staying in an old couple's basement since he found out. Jen wants to proceed with the divorce, but Judd is dragging his feet.
  • It turns out that Jen has a bombshell of her own: she's pregnant. Judd assumes that it's Wade's kid and spews a few four-letter words before he screeches away.
