On track to assume a promotion to department chair, Emma feels strongly that things fall into place before she and Paolo can consider growing their family. However, Paolo worries that that day may never come. When a crisis at home calls Paolo back to Italy, the couple must navigate busy schedules to make time for each other from afar. Missing Paolo, Emma bumps heads with Nancy (Lynda Boyd), the current chair of her department and begins to question her life choices. Thankfully, she has frequent calls, texts and visits with Tracy (Alison Sweeney) and Avery (Lacey Chabert), who seem to know her better than she knows herself. She also has a friend in
her smart and quirky teacher’s aide, Lily (Kacey Rohl), who provides Emma with a novel opportunity to get people excited about art, but it might mean giving up everything she’s worked for.
