    Will gets a devastating phone call about his father. Spero sends Simon a warning.

    While Casey, Maddie, Gwen and Will are celebrating, Will and Gwen's upcoming honeymoon, Will receives a devastating phone call that his father has been killed in the line of duty.

    When Casey and Maddie leave, Gwen asks Will if his mom knows about Hal. Will tells her no. He says to Gwen that he told Margo over the phone he wanted to tell her.

    As Will and Gwen get ready to leave to tell Barbara about Hall, Will breaks down and Gwen comforts him.


    Will tells Barbara about Hal

    Meg and Paul show up at the end of the hospital board meeting. While there they find out about the party Craig has set up, and Paul isn't happy, but Dusty tells him the party will go on.

    Barbara tells Paul Dusty will be all over Craig, and there's no way Craig will have anything to do with the money.

    Will shows up and asks Barbara if they can talk. Craig excuses himself, and says he'll leave them alone to talk, but he sneaks back and quietly cracks the door to listen in as Will breaks the news to a devastated Barbara about Hal.


    At the bar, Simon runs into Spero and his men. Spero warns Simon, telling him that "the blonde went to the cops." Simon tells Spero Carly didn't go to the cops. Spero then asks Simon why he was questioned at the station if she didn't approach the cops. Spero leaves, again warning Simon about going to the cops.

    At Simon's hotel room, Katie tries to pry and find out if anything is going on between Carly and Simon, but Carly is on to her. Carly knows Katie still cares about Simon and has feelings for him. Carly tells Katie, "You don't want Simon, Katie, you just don't want nobody else to have him." Carly goes on to ask Katie where Mike fits in, and Katie tells Carly she still loves Mike.

    "You need to decide if your feelings for Simon are worth losing Mike," Carly advises Katie.

    Carly and Katie's conversation is interrupted when Carly's phone rings. After hanging up the phone, Carly, looking upset about the call, tells Katie she has to leave. When Katie tries to find out what's wrong, Carly rushes out of the room.

    With Carly gone, Katie decides to rummage around in Simon's room to see what she can find. While rummaging,Katie is startled when Simon enters the room, grabs her from behind, and gently tosses her onto the bed.

    Getting up from the bed, Simon asks where Carly is. Katie tells him she received a phone call and then left in a hurry. Simon tells Katie he's going to look for Carly and find out why she left in such a hurry. He also tells Katie to leave while he's gone.

    Simon leaves and goes searching for Carly. When he can't find her anywhere, Simon flashes back to what Spero said.



    At the station, Margo discloses to Jack that Hal died during a "robbery in progress." She said there was a gang involved, and that Hal stepped between a 15-year-old kid, and when he did the bullet hit him instead of the kid. She said the gang left Hal there without trying to help, and Hal was "dead on arrival."

    Maddie and Casey show up at the station to join Margo. They exchange hugs as they express their grief. Soon after,Margo announces that everyone will go to Yo's to "send the chief out in style."


    While Lucy is asking Dusty to fill her in on the details about him supporting Craig, Dusty's phone rings. When he hangs up Lucky asks what her father is up to now.

    "It's not your father, it's Jennifer's," Dusty reveals to Lucy.

    "No,no, not my Hal. He wouldn't do that. He wouldn't leave me," Emily cries out.

    Meg shows up to find Paul comforting Emily. Henry also shows up and takes over for Paul while Paul and Meg leave.

    Henry sits Emily down, and Emily tells Henry she feels she can't go to Yo's to say goodbye to Hal after what she did to him. But Henry tells Emily she has to go, because she loved him.

    Katie joins the rest of the crew at Yo's. Carly asks Katie if she found what she was looking for at the hotel. Instead of answering, Katie asks Carly if the phone call she got back at Simon's hotel room was about Hal, and Carly confirms.


    Still at Yo's, Jack calls for everyone's attention. He asks everyone to share in a moment of silence to remember what "a great cop and a great man" Hal was.

    Hal was always the rock of the show. He always seemed treated badly by whatever woman he was with. Love Gwen and Will..so perfect together.

    Can we please let Carly and Jack get back together. Go Gwen and Will. Get rid of Jade and Craig. Let Henry have Emily. Also let Meg and Paul get married.

    I will deeply miss Hal. I always loved to watch him. He was always the sane person on the show. I want to extend my deepest sympathy to the members of the show and to his family.

    I am so happy that Gwen and Will are back together!! I would have stayed by my husband's side no matter how hard it was just so that little B*&^H Jade couldn't have him! I'm glad that she wasn't pregnant too!

    I am so glad the show gave Hal the FAREWELL he deserved. I am so glad that GWEN AND WILL are back together. SO GLAD they are the reason I watch the show of course MADI and CASEY too. I do like the way the show seems to be going and I hope through envitro or something Gwen can get pregnant with a healthy child.

    Why won;t they ever let Emily be happy? I think she trys so hard and fights for everyman she has ever been involved with. I really don;t like Meg and Paul together. I think she has issues and needs to move. They are such a mismatch. Paul and Emily are alot alike. Who all did Hal have children with on the show? Like I said earlier..enuf of Jade..wild animal she is ..put on the Snyder farm with Emma for awhile...bet she straightens up then. Enuf with the Rose issue..gets confusing when they flash back. It is just a boring story line. I would really like to see Henry with some one..mayne Emily if she can;t have Paul. Katie did him so wrong. That was sad.

    That was a beautiful, if not belated, farewell to "Hal". If you noticed in the flashbacks recently, Benjamin (aka Hal), did not look well at all. Perhaps if he had cried out for "help", he could still be with us.
