When George and her colleagues get a new boss whose focus is on moving souls quickly and enjoying life without consequences, the team begins to break the strict grim reaper rules. While her friends fall victim to their desires for money, success, and fame, George breaks another rule by revealing her true identity to her living family. As the reapers struggle with their roles on Earth, they each find that death can be just as complicated as life.
As George develops a crush on the cute intern at her temp agency, Happy Time, everyone discourages her from allowing it to blossom into anything more. Meanwhile, Mason's assignment to collect a soul at a kid's birthday party devestates him.
George assumes that the bad luck she had in life is going to be made up for with better luck in the afterlife. But when her bike is stolen and she learns that her parents are divorcing, she finally starts to understand that she's on her own - and she'd better look out for number one.
Feeling like she doesn't fit in, George decides to shirk her reaping duties and go on Happy Time's annual camping retreat. Back on the job, Daisy and Mason must scramble to find the Post-it notes he lost, before tragedy occurs beause of his ineptitude.
George realizes that nice girls always finish last, when she recalls a painful childhood event; and she realizes that apparently being mean is the key to popularity. Mason has trouble convinving the old man whose soul he just reaped that he cannot attend his own funeral.
When an over zealous efficiency expert comes aboard at Happy Time, George's life becomes a bit more complicated. Forcing her boss, Delores, to push George to crack the whip like never before. Meanwhile, Daisy also has a sudden case of need-for-speed as her latest assignment is somewhere in a group of people attending a speed dating event.
With power comes responsibility. That's exactly what George learns when she is put in charge of hiring a new employee. One that is to be drawn from an increasingly desperate group of applicants. Meanwhile, her sister Reggie is left home alone, and paralyzed with fear when her mother goes out with a man she met while looking for a new place to live.
George's co-reapers become jealous when she's chosen to pluck the soul of a famous rock star. But the duty proves to be more of a pain (in the ass) than a pleasure, due to the idol's entourage. Meanwhile, her eccentric Grandmother arrives in town and takes Reggie to a sacred place.
While collecting a soul at a country club, George nearly falls for a reap. Rube, who's terrible with kids, must transform into a mild mannered second grade teacher in order to get close to his latest reap. Meanwhile, Mason and Roxy get a vacation (of sorts) when they get assigned to a reap in the summer party capital of Cancun.
George is in love for the first time and boy does it have complications. It seems she was the one who reaped his father just a week earlier and now she his date to the funeral. But trouble brews everywhere when Reggie's science experiment pits one parent against another and Daisy gets involved in the murder of a hapless actress.
George loses her virginity and is shocked and devastated when the guy doesn't call her. So in protest she spurns every male who is unfortunate enough to cross her path. Feeling quite the opposite, Daisy makes sparks with smarmy TV producer Ray, while Rube heads out of town to get information on some people from his past.
When George helps a homeless man die with dignity she learns the cost of getting too involved in her work. Reggie finally makes a friend who's organizing a seance, while Mason questions his feelings for Daisy as her relationship with Ray grows.
George can't remember the last time she was this frustrated. When she gets stuck in a hospital where she can't get an Alzheimer-plagued soul to acknowledge her own death. In need of money, Joy seeks work at Happy Time. To make matters even worse, Mason decides to face of with Daisy's boyfriend, Ray, in the boxing ring.
While George regrets the things she didn't accomplish in life, Mason must comtemplate his accomplishments in the afterlife. Roxy suspects that Daisy is harboring a secret about her missing ex-boyfriend, and Reggie searches for J.D. who has escaped from the yard.
After screwing up big time, Mason begs to be allowed back into the Waffle Haus while George urges Daisy to allow him to crash with them. Facing his past, Rube visits a very special person on a very special day. And in the real world, Joey Clancy and Reggie bury J.D.
A crazed serial killer strikes on Halloween, and the reapers must pick up all the souls of the victims. The busy workday cuts into George and Mason's trick-or-treating, while back at home, Joy must cajole Reggie into the Halloween spirit after a session with a psychologist.
