A music licensing deal proves more complicated than originally anticipated, when two of the three original members of a one-hit-wonder band refuse to license their hit song for a commercial. But it isn't greed that's holding Mac and Sherry, now happily married public school teachers, back-it's that they want nothing to do with the third band member, Paul Shelton. And as Kate soon discovers, the licensing deal isn't about money for Paul either; he's dying, and with only a few months left to live, wants to reconnect with his former bandmates and their teenage son Brandon. Can Kate convince the former friends to let the past go and focus on rebuilding a relationship in the short time they have left, or have too many bridges been burned?
A case between two online gamers proves a bit less complicated-that is, once Kate manages to get the two parties involved to face each other in person. Online gaming might be multi-million dollar industry, but as it turns out, there's just no substitution for real human contact.
Of course, that doesn't always work out as planned either, as Kate is reminded when a lawsuit from the buyers of Kate and Justin's old condo stirs up memories from their marriage. And despite all her efforts, Kate's attempts to persuade David Smith to talk are met with little success, and it begins to look as though the truth behind Teddy's past remains may never come to light.
