Synopsis
Sheri is at the house with Rachael, preparing to head down to the judge's office. Today is the day that she and Kevin will be finalizing their divorce. Rachael tells her to be sure that this is what she wants, but Sheri is clear. That marriage is over. She gets to the judge's office first, where she waits for Kevin to show up. Kevin, meanwhile, is on the road, trying to rush to the judge's office, when he sees Clover (from Go Your Own Way) on the side of the road. She ran away from the children's home because they were going to take her back to live with her mother and abusive step-father. The judge finally tells Sheri that she can't wait anymore and leaves, and Sheri is left outside waiting for Kevin. When Kevin shows up, he hustles Sheri into the cab, telling her that everything will make sense soon. They head back to Sheri's place, where they are greated with a surprise 'divorce' party thrown by Rachael, Larry, and some other friends. After they clear out their friends, they talk to Clover about what she wants them to do. She tells them that all she wants is to go home to her real father in the States, but he's not allowed to come get her because he has a criminal record. She hastens to assure them that he's not a bad guy -- he assaulted her step-father after learning what he was doing to both her and her mother. Sheri and Kevin agree to take her to the States, forced to hide her in the trunk and pretend to be a married couple because Clover has no identification papers. After dropping her off, the cab breaks down, and Sheri and Kevin are forced to spend the night in a hotel together. The two begin arguing about their marriage, each casting blame. Sheri blames Kevin for marrying her then putting her in his basement like she and their son Noah were some dirty little secret. Kevin admits that he made mistakes, and says it was because deep down he could never understand how someone like her could ever love someone like him. For the first time they discuss the impact that Noah's death had on their lives. When he admits that she is the only woman he ever loved, and that he is still just in love with her as ever, the two kiss. The next day they sign the divorce decree, and decide to try dating like normal people without all that pressure on them. Carol is stopped for speeding on her way to a meeting, and given a $500 ticket for going 110 km in a 50 km zone. Mick encourages her to fight the ticket, telling her that traffic cops never show up in court. She fights it, but her flippant attitude so enrages Judge McBain that he not only decrees that the ticket stands, but that Carol is to lose her license for six months. She runs into the cop again outside of court, and he can't believe that she assumed she would get off. While lamenting her lost license, she realises she has a meeting in Whistler the next day that now she has no way to get to. In Whistler the next day, Carol leaves her meeting to find the cop waiting outside for her. He apologizes for what happened, telling her that he never believed that she would lose her license. She doesn't blame him for the incident, and hops on the back of the bike. Jamie realises that he can't continue to do what he's doing, which is nothing. He meets Rich for a few minutes, giving him a CD player as a gift, and telling him that he needs to go. Rich understands, but tells Jamie that he would have made a really cool older brother, which alleviates some of Jamie's worry that Rich was looking at him as a substitute father figure. The next scene sees Jamie in a barber's chair, his long, bleach-blonde locks being razored off. Derek has resigned himself to the fact that he'll be working for his father forever, and is surprised when his father asks to talk to him. Stanislav hands his son a wad of cash. Derek doesn't understand what it's for, but Stanislav tells him that he has given up a lot of his life to work in the store, and he is proud of them. He wants him to go on and do something with his life. The gang goes to Lavaland, where Neill and Rachael are working. Sheri and Kevin reveal that they are now dating. Mick is there hanging out when Noella spies him, and likes what she sees. Derek tells his friends about his good fortune. Carol comes in with the cop, each teasing each other about their driving. Jamie walks in wearing his military uniform. The day is over.
