Paul attends Alex's funeral, where he meets Roy, the dead soldier's son. The boy feels like he's supposed to stay strong, like his father taught him, but Paul explains that sometimes being strong means telling people how you really feel. The therapist sees Laura, who feels guilty being there with Alex's wife and family, and when the pair leave, Alex's father mistake them for husband and wife. Later, Paul explains that people used to assume that his stepmother was his sister because she was 26 years younger than his father, a heart surgeon who Paul wanted to be nothing like.
