Nikki schleps some laundry downstairs. Bradin runs in and wants to give her a high five. She asks if he's wearing cologne, and Bradin says that it's aftershave. Nikki asks where he's going. Bradin doesn't tell her at first, and then admits that he's going to hang out with a friend down at the pier, not that it's her business. Nikki drops her laundry basket and yells that Bradin seems to have completely forgotten about their parents. Bradin says that she can't tell him how to show his feelings, and that he misses his parents every second. Nikki asks if their dad would be out partying right now if one of his children died. I don't think their dad did much partying, period. Bradin retorts that their mom wouldn't be acting like "some psycho control freak." Nikki starts slapping Bradin, and he grabs her arms and yells that she's not his mother. Nikki totally loses it and starts yelling that nobody cares about her parents. Ava runs in and breaks it up. Bradin says he's going down to the pier to watch volleyball. Ava tries to act like she cares, but Bradin says he'll be with his surfing teacher, and takes off.
Nikki pouts on the couch. Ava tries to explain that everybody handles grief differently. Susannah suggests that Nikki get out and see friends as well, and offers up a friend's daughter as a potential playmate. Nikki bitches that Susannah doesn't know anything about Nikki. She adds, "If you knew the first thing about guys, you wouldn't be sharing a house with a bunch of your friends at this point, now would you?" Man, where did she learn to be such a bitch? ["Although...she does kind of have a point." -- Wing Chun] Ava tells Nikki to shut up, and says that there's no excuse for that kind of rudeness and cruelty. Nikki tries to run up to her room, but Ava forbids it. Ava reminds Nikki that everyone feels a loss, but that everyone else is trying to make the situation work. She accuses Nikki of pushing people around, and tells her to step up and act like a member of the family. Ava concludes that Nikki is acting like "a selfish baby." Nikki runs off, and Susannah looks all disappointed, like everything Ava just said wasn't true. Susannah should have applauded.
Johnny runs in and asks if Derrick came inside. They realize that Derrick is gone, and run out to the beach.
Upstairs, Nikki sobs in her bed.
Meanwhile, Derrick walks down the beach, wearing an outfit that no nine-year-old boy would ever wear. It's a short-sleeved button down shirt with matching patterned shorts and sandals. He looks like a miniature Miami retiree. Derrick spots a rock in the ocean and wades out.
