When he confronts Diane, he thinks she has another son she’s keeping secret from him. Diane desperately defends herself, insisting that it’s nothing like that, though she’s hesitant to tell him the whole truth. With James on the verge of a meltdown, Diane finally gives in,revealing that his stepdaughter, Kaylee (Emma Rose), is the other ‘boy’ in the old family photo — she’s transgender. James is shocked. How could his family keep something like this from him?? Does anyone else know?? Why didn’t Kaylee trust him to tell him herself??
