A bus loaded with people from "The Hill" crashes while returning from a Patriots football game. The accident is caused by a suicide-jumper, leaping from a highway overpass. The jumper was Freddie Cork's oldest son Ricky. Freddie enlists Tommy to get Ricky a proper Catholic funeral. Michael discovers that Ricky was gay. He uses this information to manipulate Freddie, who, in a rage, then kills Ricky's lover. Also victims of the crash are Eileen's erstwhile lover Carl Hobbs and Marty Trio's wife Leanne. Carl's death makes Eileen want to atone for her sins. Leanne's death convinces Marty that he should turn state's evidence.
