Following Phil's death, the group holds a norse funeral for him. The group says their final goodbyes to Phil, as Tandy pushes the ship into the ocean, Tandy tries to conclude the funeral by shooting a flaming arrow at the ship, but the arrows fail to fire. Following the funeral, Carol is disappointed that Todd didn't accept Melissa's proposal, but learns from Tandy that Gail is secretly dating Todd. Meanwhile, Phil begins to struggle for closure, after Phil's demise.

Tandy goes into Phil's room and remembers their first encounter and some of the memories they "shared". While going through his stuff, he finds that Phil actually has a middle name. Still attempting to find closure, Tandy offers to Erica to be the father of her child by even fixing Phil's handmade crib, but Erica ultimately rejects as Phil didn't want Tandy to be the father.

With Tandy's feelings hurt, he tries to blow off steam by shooting his Phil dummy. He then brings Erica to Phil's room, and tries to show Erica how disrespectful he was with Phil's collection of nude magazines and drugs. Out of anger, Tandy lights all of Phil's possessions on fire and is even more angry when Phil's coffin returns to shore. When Erica comes outside to see this, he admits he seeks closure and misses him. She then suggests burying Phil next to Gordon, resulting in him finding his closure.


Meanwhile, Todd apologizes to Gail for covering up their relationship from Melissa. Later that day, Melissa is still upset over Todd's rejection from the proposal and decides to break Christmas ornaments, while also drinking alcohol at the same time. The following day, Todd finds Melissa singing Tandy's closure song along with chewing off gems off of Carol's boots. With Todd there, she invites him to watch TV with him, which he hesitantly accepts. When Todd goes back to Gail, she is disappointed over Phil's death. She then proceeds to tell Todd to take his pants off, where he reveals he has plans with Melissa, leading to Gail to pour an entire bottle of wine. While Melissa and Todd watch TV together, Melissa tries to kiss Todd, but Todd attempts to move away, but she eventually leads him. But when Melissa tells Carol that they are "back together", Carol confronts Todd about this, and kisses him, confirming that she knows about his continuous flings with Melissa and Gail.
