Storyline

It's Yom Kippur, a time for apologies and forgiveness, which may not always come to pass. Maura receives support from Sal, which places her on Davina's bad side in wanting to be a true friend. Shelly accepts the attentions of someone she meets to replace the loss she feels from Maura no longer being there for her. Sarah looks for forgiveness from Tammy, while she issues a set of somewhat seeming incompatible wants from Dr. Steve. Raquel is unequivocal in her intentions with Josh following the loss of their baby, she who does not care what he tells people about why she is no longer in his life. And Ali and Syd try to clear the air about Ali's overnight stay at Leslie's. All these issues may come to a head as Ali and Syd host a Yom Kippur dinner for their families to break the fast.
