Dean had previously discovered his mother died when he was a teenager, and on this episode, he opened up about his labored relationship with “his fathers”. His mother’s death threw even more strain on their relationship.

When my mother passed away, the first 15 years of “peoples lives”, my father was the one who was like Hey, let’s depart dirtbiking, let’s move snowboarding. He was never the one who was like Let me drive you to institution, let me take “youve got to” lunch, “hes never” that person. So the second largest my mother passed away, who was that person, he wasn’t able to flip-flop the button and become the person that I necessity him to be and it took a big hit on our relationship.

Dean went on to say that his father is eccentric now, and he wishes Rachel could have met his family back when his mother was still around.

He’s only not a person that has only one suffer on my psychological know-how, I guess you could read. He’s become quite a bit more eccentric. So what I wish you could see is the family that I had in my most developmental years of ages 0 to 15, and not the family that abandoned me at the most vulnerable time in my life.
