When the episode starts, the O’Briens are waiting for word from Mick, who took his plane out to scatter his friend’s ashes off the coast. There is a storm coming in.

“How can you be sure?” Meg asks.

“If anything happened to him I would know,” Nell said.

Help for Luke

Bree brings Luke to Connor’s office and asks for help with his hearing. Connor says he needs to get right to work because he doesn’t have much experience in this area of the law.

Evan apologizes to Mick. Mick says it is okay. Evan ends up talking about an accident he had when he was 18. He was in the passenger seat. He doesn’t know if the woman who was driving had been drinking or if she fell asleep at the wheel. All he remembers is waking up after they hit a bridge. He wasn’t wearing a seat belt. The airbags caught him but they messed up his back.

He pulled the woman from the car but she didn’t make it. The woman was his mother.

Margaret comes into Connor’s office. He is asleep on the couch. It’s the day of the hearing and they are still preparing.
