Brenda expresses her desire to have a baby and Nate is supportive, but vague as to when they should start trying to conceive. Mrs. Chenowith must undergo an emergency hysterectomy. While visiting her mother in the hospital's recovery room, Brenda is reunited with her estranged brother Billy.
Nate and Brenda receive a visit from Nate's former in-laws, Barb and Hoyt. Over dinner, Barb reveals that at Lisa's recent memorial service, the funeral director noticed that the ashes hadn't been properly pulverized and suspected that they were not Lisa's remains. When Barb presses Nate to look into the matter, he admits the truth about burying Lisa. The revelation upsets Barb, who is already suspicious of Nate reuniting with Brenda so quickly after Lisa's death. Before leaving, Barb threatens to find a way to take Maya away from Nate.
