- chapter two. the hayworth siblings were settling in to their new normal. after being laid off, sarah was trying to make use of her time. everyone hoped she'd find a new job soon-- some more than others. for connor, being a newly separated, single dad was exhausting. and thanks to that loan from connor, tom had a financial cushion for a few months, allowing him to really focus on his novel. asking for a loan was awkward. but it would get really ugly once the whole family learned that this new book was all about them. [overlapping chatter] now that they all lived nearby, the siblings decided to host a weekly rotating brunch. - so first trip to oakland. everything you ever dreamed? - oh, yeah. so hip. - oh? - and your place is so, uh,

tom and sah s had culous idea called drawerd'oeuvres, and connor invested in it, despite tom saying it was ridiculous. but, hey, what did tom know? because it was a huge hit. and connor added it to his already ridiculous fortune while tom could've invested in it, but didn't. not that that bothered him. - ooh, mommy brain. that's next weekend? - yep. and i'm supposed to give a toast. stand up in front of everyone and act all happy for the new couple. i can't do that. - because he's gross? - because he's a jerk? - it feels like you're losing a part of yourself? - it's impossible to find joy in anything?ys,. because how am i supposed to act all "yay, marriage" when i'm, you know... getting divorced? - oh, yeah. - right. right. - so sorry. - you still haven't told gretchen? - no, we're waiting for emily to get back from her business trip. god, here i am, heartbroken, trying to write an inspiring toast about love when i'm not a good writer.

from abc news, this is "world news now." good monday morning. we begin with closing arguments in the trial of former minneapolis police officer derek chauvin, now just hours away. >> the country on edge. worried that a verdict stemming from the death of george floyd could trigger a new round of outrage like we saw last summer. >> tensions already high. this was the scene last night in raleigh, north carolina. officers clashing with protestors rallying against the recent police shootings of daunte wright in minnesota and adam toledo in chicago. >> reporter: the city of minneapolis bracing itself ahead of a verdict in the derek chauvin trial. thousands of members of the national guard come in to assist local authorities. schools moving to remote learning for several days, following three weeks of gripping and emotional testimony.
3:32 am
the trial now nearing its end. both sides getting one last chance to sway the jury in their favor during closing arguments. jurors could begin deliberating immediately after. >> members of the jury, the evidence is now complete for this case. next step for you is to listen to closing arguments and then retire for deliberations. >> reporter: chauvin is facing charges of second degree unintentional murder, third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. he's plead not guilty. the defense has argued that drug use and underlying heart condition led to floyd's death. chauvin's attorney saying chauvin's actions were justified and he acted reasonably in his use of force. te prosecution says the cause was the 9 minutes and 29 seconds in which chauvin pinned floyd to the ground with his knee pressed into floyd's neck that made it impossible for floyd to breathe. nearly a year after his death sparked protests, the attorney for floyd's family says he prays for a conviction.
