Shawn stops by to see Carly and Josslyn at home. Carly catches him up on getting custody of Josslyn, as well as Jax leaving. He opens up about his time in the service.

Liz doesn't think it was her place, but assures her Jake was loved by everyone. Monica says the only way she'll know him now is through memories.
