Thomas drives the bus to Reno, NV to visit his old friend Chris at his tattoo shop, Sinister Ink. Krystin tattoos a sexy blonde's foot inside the shop, and everyone accuses Thomas of being the biggest flirt on the bus. Later, Thomas visits his old high school, and Monica worries that his bad experiences in school might affect how he raises their daughters. After coming to terms with his home town, Thomas takes the bus to Hawthorne, NV to meet Trooper, a man who recently lost his wife and wants a portrait of her on his chest. Thomas mixes Trooper's wife's ashes in the ink and gives one of his most meaningful tattoos on the trip.
