Mimi wanted to change the subject and grabbed the coffee Belle brought over. Unfortunately, Mimi accidentally spilled the hot cup of coffee down the front of Shawn. Fortunately the scalding hot coffee triggered Shawn's memories from his time with Jan in the cage. Thrilled, Shawn explained that Jan had dressed like an old woman and kidnapped him, keeping him in the cage. Mimi immediately 'fessed up to knowing about the cage, but quickly explained that when she took them to see, the snow village had replaced her only proof.

In St. Luke's a horrified Brady found Nicole walk in the door. Citing a close friends and family policy, Nicole asked whether she was family. Brady agreed she was and explained that he worried about whether Nancy would want Nicole at the service.

When the sister replied there was no memorial service scheduled, Nicole became convinced Nancy was making the whole thing up.
Outside St. Luke's Chloe begged Nancy not to go through with her fake memorial, but Nancy pointed out that if Chloe was half as stubborn about living as she was hiding, her life would be fantastic. That and that Nancy was just as stubborn as Chloe. With a twinkle in her eye, Nancy walked into St. Luke's. When Chloe followed her in, Nancy handed her a CD and told her to make herself useful and put the music in.
Inside St. Luke's, after Nancy gave the urn to Brady to hold, Brady caressed the urn, feeling Chloe's presence. Brady told Chloe's urn how much he missed her and longed to hold, see, and hear her. He also said that her beauty and goodness was with the angels in heaven, and someday he would be reunited with her. Nicole held his hand and promised to always be there for him. Nancy watched from the back and interrupted, claiming Father Jansen had accidentally left the memorial off the scheduling calendar. After a few more explanations, Nancy told them the plan was to press on since the memorial was mostly for Nancy herself anyway. Chloe's music began to play, sending Brady into a melancholy mood. However, the vocal track to the CD was no working properly and, fearing someone would try to fix the machine and find Chloe instead, Chloe began to sing live accompaniment. Brady immediately could tell the voice was singing live, and he rushed out to find who sounded like Chloe.
Nicole nearly discovers Chloe singing at the memorial service but Chloe slips inside the chapel. Nicole thinks Chloe's "life like" voice stems from the faulty sound system. The service gets underway and Brady proposes to dead Chloe, with a ring and all, telling her that they will be together in heaven. Nicole is hurt by this and Chloe is wrecked.
