Just as he introduces Nico as his boyfriend, Saul’s alarms sound and Dr. Marks (Jonni Bovill) rushes in. Levi feels he killed him with his “gayness.”
In the kitchen, Catherine confronts Richard about them bringing dates and feels they cannot tell them now and they should just try to get through tonight. Richard says he has gotten good at that. Vic and Dean talk about their events as firefighters, Maggie and Jackson getting up to set the table. Dean sarcastically calls it a “cool party.”
Levi reveals to Nico that as Jewish tradition states a family member cannot leave the body from the moment they die until they are buried in the ground or their spirit gets all confused.

His Aunt Gerdi arrives and she moves back the sheet to see Saul’s face. She tells Levi that he looks good and he introduces her to Nico as his friend.

She leans in and kisses his forehead, says, “I love you buddy.” tells Levi she loves him and leaves him there with the body.
Maggie feels Jackson was trying to set her up with Dean and most people take time to grieve after a relationship ends. She demands to know why he can never be alone as he mocks her about thinking the world revolves around her. She admits that Dean tried to ask her out when he was on his nature walk with another woman. Dean feels Vic should only worry about Jackson and Maggie killing each other, as Vic feels this is his second chance with her. Dean wishes Vic would have told Maggie about him coming but she worries that Maggie would have left. They are called to the dinner table, Catherine encouraging everyone to sit. Dean jokes that Vic isn’t allergic to anything and would put anything in her mouth, something that startles everyone there. He corrects himself saying anything that is food.
Dean talks to Richard and Catherine, figuring out who everyone is and how they are related. He wants to know if Maggie and Jackson were dating before they became brothers and sisters. Maggie says they never grew up together and grew up in very different ways. Maggie and Jackson continue to be very snide with each other, her and Dean laughing. It causes Jackson to tell stories about Vic, hoping to distract everyone from Dean. Vic questions Richard about his job as Catherine reveals how there was a burial ground in the backyard of the hospital he is now working at. Richard is shocked, saying the bodies were removed respectfully and the story wasn’t revealed to the public.

He is upset that he had to leave behind the hospital he built and the people he loved. She says sorry, but uses the word “but” and he feels that is too little and too late for him. He leaves her in the kitchen alone.
Daniel and Levi together do the Jewish death ceremony, cleansing Saul’s body. Levi wants to know why Saul would pretend his life with Gerdi and not build a life with the man he loves. Daniel explains that his generation takes things for granted, but he shouldn’t be sad as this gives him hope. He talks about how Saul loved him for decades but there was something in Saul that wouldn’t let him. Daniel didn’t want to build a life with someone who was ashamed of himself every day. Gerdi knew and simply pretended they were married because they cared for each other. Levi promises to never take this freedom for granted.

Meanwhile, Maggie sits with Richard outside having no idea. He admits they tend to keep their problems to themselves as he does truly believe it is over between them. He feels they can all stop pretending as she is glad she doesn’t have to get along with Jackson anymore.
