Robin rushes to the scene, but finds that Jamie’s father has passed away. On the morning of the burial, Jamie reveals to Robin her disappointment with the choice of customary white roses. Motivated by the potential to ease her daughter's grief and the chance to atone, Robin promises that they will find blue flowers and make it to the service on time.
