Davina is unable to move on while living in the ultra-hip condo. She is haunted by memories of Al and their life together. She accepts an offer to bunk with Veronica and Roger, but that arrangement proves a little more complicated than expected. Meanwhile, Theodore puts his real estate license to good use and tries to help Davina find a new home. But moving isn't as easy as she'd hoped; partly because Al's spirit seems to be telling her to live near the lake. Once the condo is sold, a major faux pas by Roger forces Davina out of her sister's house and she finds herself homeless. Eventually Sam comes to the rescue, offering Davina an unexpected sanctuary.
