Mabel watches an old TV show of Ben’s and flashes back to the night Ben died. Uma and Oliver ran for help while she took pictures of the crime scene. She then imagines a conversation with Ben as his character. She spills her insecurities out on him. Ben talks about feeling the same way when he was her age. He offers her some advice and tells her that she will figure out her life and who killed him.

 

Charles opens a gift from Ben when Oliver comes over to help him get ready for the funeral. Oliver is surprised he is going to the funeral, leaving them to argue. Mabel shows up to go with him. Charles wonders if it is because of her childhood crush, but she denies this.

 

They arrive and are sent to the overflow three room (much to Oliver’s chagrin). He is determined to get to his producers and into the main room, but ends up making a fool out of himself.
