Summary:
Reed asks Teddy to create an original outfit for Chardonnay to wear to his own funeral. Shortly after trying on the finished dress, Chardonnay dies of AIDS. A depressed Reed does not want to return to do her community service work at the AIDS hospice. However, because Reed is working at the hospice in order to avoid serving time in prison, her mother is concerned. Reed goes back to the hospice to get some possessions that Chardonnay willed to her and finds comfort when she speaks to Chardonnay’s ghost. Alex and the obnoxious columnist Pug argue over who will interview a heroic fireman who rescued a little girl. Pug gets the interview, but Alex finds out the real story about the rescue from the child. Wes realizes that he wants a relationship with Charley.
