Olivia starts to dial the number, and Lizzie disconnects the call. Lizzie tells Olivia that Ben was pouring his heart out to her about how much he still cared about Marina. Lizzie tells her that she didn't think that Ben was the murder suspect since he was nearly killed himself. Olivia tells her she should have called Marina to see if she wanted to see Ben.

Billy said that he likes a self-made woman. Eden lets them in and Billy asks what kind of business she is in. At the dinner table, Eden questions Billy about the oil business.

Danny pulled Tony aside to remind him that Eden has been cleared and things should get back to normal. Tony agreed by saying that Bill is responsible for Eden now.
At Eden's apartment, Bill prepared to speak at Ben's funeral. Eden went into the hallway to retrieve the newspaper. Inside the newspaper, Eden discovered an envelope. The envelope contained a note and photos. On the note was written that a picture is worth a thousand words; Some candids of your new friend from your old friend; Signed Vinnie Salerno. The photos displayed Tony being violent towards a woman. Eden kept the information secret from Bill and they left for the funeral.
At the Lewis house, Reva and Shayne argued about Ben's Memorial Service. Shayne struggled with how much pain Ben had caused. Reva told Shayne that people will never be able to forget that pain. Reva urged Shayne not to ruin the funeral. She told Shayne that the people who loved Ben need an opportunity to remember the good in him. Shayne left to look for Marina and Reva left for funeral.
At the Country Club, the Memorial Service for Ben took place off screen. Afterwards, many of Springfield's residents gathered to remember Ben and made attempts to understand the tragedy. Ben's stepmother, Holly was the most grief stricken. Blake, Ross, Ed, Buzz, Frank, and Reva attempted to comfort Holly with warm hugs and kind words. Michelle and Bill reminisced about their childhood with Ben. They were very distraught that his life ended so early. Tony approached Eden and told her that nothing can stop her from starting fresh. Eden grasped the envelope containing the photos of Tony while she pondered this thought. Blake and Ross debated about how to tell their children about Ben's death. Ed approached Holly who was gazing at a childhood photo of Ben. Ed consoled her while she remembered Ben's life and last moments. She regretted being the stepmother who loved Ben too late. At the end of the gathering, Harley began to discuss a business proposal with Danny.
Back at the Museum, Tony, Remy and Bill went into the kitchen to search for food. Marah told Eden that she spent the previous night at her parent's house because she was feeling unsafe. Marah admitted to Eden that Ben's violence towards Marina had brought up stuff from her own past. Then quickly told Eden to forget she said anything. Curious, Eden questioned if something had happened between Marah and Tony. Marah weakly reassured herself and Eden that Tony is not the same violent person. Eden again grasped the envelope containing the violent photos of Tony.
At a closed Company, Marina was sitting alone in the dark. Shayne entered and began pleading with her to discuss what happened with Ben at the cabin. Shayne urged her to talk, for both their benefits. Marina was still trying to act cool, like nothing happened. Shayne tried to convince her that she wasn't alone. Marina screamed for him to shut up. Undaunted, Shayne smashed a plate in anger. He wanted her to throw plates and let out the pain. An extremely emotional, Marina began throwing plates and screaming her hatred. In a crying rage, she screamed that she hated how Ben scared her; hated how he got so messed up; hated that someone hurt him and that she didn't know; hated how he killed those people; hated how he died; hated herself for letting it happen. Crying, Marina fell to the ground as Shayne held her. Marina wondered why she couldn't save Ben. Shayne reassured her that she brought out the best in Ben; that she brings out the best in everyone. Marina thanked Shayne and they began to pick up the pieces of broken plates. Shayne surprised her with "Fanty", Marina's childhood stuffed elephant toy that she had previously tried to discard in the trash. Clearly a weight lifted from her shoulders, Marina hugged her childhood memento and then hugged Shayne.

At the Country Club, Edmund greeted Cassie with a kiss. Cassie quickly alerted him that R.J. and Danny were present as well. Edmund was hesitant to meet with Danny since the last time they had a business meeting Edmund almost ended up at the bottom of the lake. They discussed getting past the past and how they were both starting over. Edmund said Richard's death brought perspective and he's focused on taking care of Cassie and her children. Danny offered Edmund a lease in a newly constructed business complex on 5th street. Meanwhile, Cassie rushed off to find a wandering R.J. She found R.J. attached to Jeffrey's leg, calling him Daddy. Cassie tried to explain to her young son that this not so nice man only looked like his deceased daddy. Cassie and Jeffrey had a comical exchange spelling words that may have upset young R.J. The usually abrasive, Jeffrey, attempted to get rid of the kid by making silly faces, but that resulted in R.J. latching onto his leg again. Uncle Edmund convinced R.J. to loosen his grasp and took him for a little walk to explain the situation. Jeffrey continued to be abrasive towards Cassie. But he managed a smile out of Cassie when he claimed that deep down inside he might really be a prince. R.J. returned and shook hands with Mr. O'Neill. Later Edmund proposed that Cassie and the children move back to the farm. Cassie momentarily mistook his meaning and explained that it was too soon for them to move in together. Edmund honestly replied that it was too soon for them to play house. He quipped that he still wanted to play Doctor with her. R.J. latched himself back onto Jeffrey's leg. Undeterred, Jeffrey walked into the bar with R.J. still attached. Cassie smiled at the sight, while Edmund continued to worry about this Richard look-a-like.
