Simone cries, saying that people start seeing their dead relatives just before they die. Simone asks Zach what he’s saying. Zach says the only thing that will keep Ethan alive is his hate for him. He needs to push him so he fights. Zach continues, saying he’ll be Ethan’s best man, or maybe he’ll give away the bride, if he doesn’t keep her for himself. Ethan tells him he wants his ashes for his wedding present. Ethan says time is running out – does Zach have any last wishes. Zach says the one thing he wants is to apologize to his son.
