Derrick draws a picture. His friend rushes up and explains that when the Anasazi Indians were ready to die, they would sit under a big tree and wait for the spirits to take them. The friend runs off as Derrick considers this method.
Susannah offers Ava advice. Isn't she supposed to be into fashion? Because no self-respecting fashionista would wear a series of ugly sundresses like Susannah has. Anyway, Susannah tells Ava that she puts on an excessively cheerful voice when she talks to Nikki, and that it's doubtful that Karen acted that way. Ava says that she's not trying to be her sister, and Susannah backs down. Ava opens a box and finds all of Karen's journals. Ava talks about how jealous she was that Karen had the discipline to write in her journal every night. Susannah tries to make an OCD joke, but Ava tells her not to. That was the one moment in this show that felt sort of natural to me -- where someone tries to joke about something, but it's too soon and too raw. Susannah apologizes. Ava starts to put the journals away, and Susannah can't believe Ava isn't going to read them. Ava claims she doesn't want to violate her sister's privacy. Do you even have privacy once you're dead? If Karen didn't want anyone ever to read them, she would have burned them or something. Susannah asks what Ava is afraid to see. Ava offers up a typical entry where they kids are happy and life is great. That is such horseshit. Any normal person would tear into those diaries like they were Thanksgiving dinner.
Derrick walks over to a tree and climbs in. Isn't he supposed to sit under the tree? Some hours later, he gets down, disappointed. Weren't they all worried about someone babysitting him earlier? Clearly, no one is watching this kid if he can sit in a tree for hours and no one comes looking for him.
Nikki makes dinner. Bradin walks in, all cheerful, and tastes the food. Nikki asks if he's okay, and looks betrayed that he's happy. Bradin walks out and announces to everyone that he managed to get up on the board. Everyone is impressed. Johnny walks in with two pizzas, which isn't nearly enough for seven people, especially if one of them is a teenaged boy. Derrick grabs a slice, and Nikki yells at him for eating right before dinner. Johnny notices that Nikki is cooking and puts the pizza away. Nikki yells at Bradin for eating pizza and setting a bad example for Derrick. Bradin tells Nikki that she's not his mother. Nikki bitches that dinner is ready if anyone is hungry, but she's not. She stomps up to her room as Bradin tries to apologize. Ava calls out that she'll keep dinner warm in case Nikki is hungry later. Jay and Susannah start to try to help, but Johnny holds them back.
