Helen find Tony reading Kylie’s letter. Tony opens up and admits he can’t move on. He just wishes Rich knew they would have been there for him. Tony’s been keeping his feelings hidden so as not to burden Pat. Helen reassures him that he’s been strong for all of them. She later tells Tom that she’s worried about Tony.
