With no funeral fanfare for the dearly departed Sid Fairgate, "Aftermath" picks up five weeks after Sid's death. Few tears are shed in the bereaved family's household, as Karen tries some 'tough love' tactics to get herself and her children to move ahead with their lives, and goes to pretty extreme measures to do so. In the opening of the episode, we see Sid's eldest son Eric weeping in the driver's seat of his father's vintage car in the family's garage. Eric's sadness turns to rage when he soon learns that the car has been sold by his mother. Karen, who has reportedly not shed a tear since her husband's death, further alienates her children and her friends by refusing to talk about her husband. The levees of her composure will crumble later in the season when Kenny and Ginger ask her to be the godmother of their new baby. Written by
