Phil becomes furious when he finds out that Mel took some cash, so he cuts him off. That doesn’t end there. He also instructs Jay not to get involved in preparing Hunter’s funeral service. He asked him to find someone else to deal with the arrangements.
Mel is left distraught when she finds out that she’s been cut off. With no money to fund Hunter’s funeral, she considers scaling back. She takes another blow when Jay delivers the news that he can no longer help her out. However, Jay still allows Mel to get inside the funeral parlor. There, she spends time with her dead son.
The moment she feels she’s all alone, Lisa comes to offer her support. At the day of the funeral, Mel tries to keep her composure with the help of her best friend, Lisa. After the service, they head to The Vic but tensions erupt when they find The Mitchells there, too.
They start arguing after Phil realizes that Jay didn’t follow his instructions and still went to help Mel with the funeral arrangements. Mel heads home but gets an unexpected visitor, Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean). The latter tries to settle things, but they will end up arguing as well. What else could go wrong for Mel? How will she cope after her son’s death?
