Maxie wakes up in bed to Nathan. As they move in to kiss, Maxie opens her eyes to find he isn’t there. She dissolves into tears. She walks out to her living room to tell Nina about her dream. She could feel Nathan, warm and alive in her arms. She needs Nina to tell her Nathan is gone. Nina tearfully complies. When Nina heads to the kitchen to try and be helpful, Maxie sees a pamphlet about funeral services. She confronts Nina when she returns to the room. Nina said they all just wanted to help, but Maxie retorts that unless Nina can bring Nathan back from the dead, there’s nothing she can do. Nina apologizes and cries that she lost her brother too. Maxie hugs her. Nina is sorry for the years she lost with Nathan, but feels lucky to have seen the man he became. Maxie saw what a great man Nathan was the first night they met. She flashes to that moment in her apartment and holds Nina’s hand. She asks Nina to go through the brochures with her to figure out what Nathan would want. Nina and Maxie feel Nathan’s presence as they come together as family.
