Midge isn’t the only one with secrets on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2. Abe learns his son has something he’s been keeping from the whole family too.

In the previous episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2, Midge’s secret was out of the bag. Well, at least when it came to her father, it was out. Abe watched her whole performance, never once breaking that stern glance. However, Episode 6 sees him learn far more about his children.

It’s the end of the summer and the last days at the camp. However, Abe gets a call that his project at work has been granted but he needs to head back to the city to finalize a few things. Of course, his son, Noah, heads off with him to see the workplace, somewhere Abe has been trying to get Noah a job for a while.

That’s where it all goes wrong. Abe is taken to a secure room, where he learns that his son holds governmental secrets. Abe’s security clearance isn’t high enough to learn the details and Noah isn’t going to share anything at all. Naturally, it annoys Abe because now he feels like he doesn’t know either of his children.

When he tells Rose a little bit of what happened, she decides to speak to her daughter-in-law, who is being the martyr faster for an event in Jewish history that absolutely nobody else seems to care about. Rose learns that her son was recruited by the CIA. While she doesn’t get any other details, she does relay what she knows to Abe. All it does is annoy Abe even more.

Meanwhile, he tells Midge not to tell anyone about her comedy routine. He’s afraid she’ll rock the boat and upset everyone. But Midge does get another gig and heads off with Susie to perform at it. This time, there are no parents to watch her.

By the end of the episode, it’s time to say goodbye to summer for another year. After the staff performance, a comic takes to the stage. All Abe wants to know from Midge is if she’s as funny or even funnier than the guy on the stage. She thinks she is and Abe seems to accept that his daughter isn’t quite the woman he thought she was.

Of course, that’s not how the episode can finish. After all, there’s a certain Doctor Benjamin, who has clearly returned to the place for Midge since he had no intention of returning beforehand. Joel and Midge have decided it’s time to officially dance with other people and Midge goes to Benjamin. Things are certainly looking promising for them.
