It's the day of David's funeral and everyone prepares in their own way: Wendy by clinging to her daughter, Terese and Toadie by reaffirming their promise to put each other first, and the Robinson-Tanaka-Harris-Stone clan by rallying around Aaron.

When Aaron rejects their support, Nicolette worries about the effect it'll have on Isla.

Meanwhile, Chelsea is desperate to cement her place at Paul's side and support him through the funeral, but she's thwarted first by Leo, then by Lucy.

Having been asked not to attend the funeral by Leo, Krista struggles with her feelings about David's death. She holds a private memorial at the lake, saying goodbye – and sorry – to David in her own way, and is gratified when Leo admits his mistake and asks her to attend the wake.

Elsewhere, Paul tries to assuage his guilt by being there for David's husband and daughter. He counsels Aaron to stop trying to be strong and let his family – particularly Isla – share in his pain, but his guilt is only made worse when Aaron takes his advice and tosses aside his prepared eulogy for a devastated speech from the heart.

Unable to get through his own eulogy, Paul's self-loathing builds throughout the wake until the one other person he deems worthy of his disgust walks in. Paul interrupts the wake with a venomous, hypocritical tirade at Krista.
