Cal changes in this chapter because you start seeing that he has an alcohol problem and even though it is not addiction yet it can lead to it.
The major conflict is that they don't want to talk about Conrad at the party and they keep trying to avoid the conversation. They are trying to keep the problems with Con hidden from everyone.
