Storyline

Josh is able to convince someone to accompany him on his road trip to see Colton to drop off some of Rita's ashes with him. The journey ends up being one of joint discovery for the two, the journey which hits some unforeseen bumpy patches along the way. With Leslie still at the house recuperating from her fall, Ali needs some space away from her, and ends up returning to a previous comfort. That return ends up being somewhat different, but revelatory nonetheless for Ali. And Buzzy is helping Shelly with her one woman show, "To Shell and Back". What Buzzy does, which has some ulterior motives, has some financial implications for Shelly. Written by Huggo
