Preston and Preston's dad have a moment. Monty and Victor fall for Trapsaw's last trap. The young man approaches Brody and tells him he is Aiden and they hug. 

Episode Review:
A basic episode going through the tropes of protecting a tree for environment sake against a misguided rich guy. The episode is pretty predictable but that is what we have come to expect from filler episodes. Also with the tagged-on ending in which Brody doesn't even mention his brother only that he was on the bad guy ship with Ripcon. Glad at least they mentioned Preston's mom is dead, they almost never mention the second parent, only the first.
