Edina's father has died. Gran is taking it in stride, Saffron is beside herself in grief, but Edina could not be bothered. Eventually, the reality of the situation hits her: it dawns on her that some day she, Edina, is going to die. The next day, she buys a whole lot of very expensive artwork to "bequeath to the nation". Marshall drops by with his new girlfriend, a self-help therapist who is only too keen on discussing death, until she finds out that the body is to be brought to Edina's living room for the wake. Later, while Eddy is showing Patsy her new artwork, they happen to notice an occupied coffin in the midst of it all, and gaze speculatively at it, wondering "Is it art?" Saffron, completely exasperated by her mother's selfish attitude, bans Edina from the funeral, leaving her and Patsy to get sad and drunk. Edina suddenly decides she wants to go to the cemetery, and she takes Patsy along. At the burial service, Edina stumbles drunkenly into her father's grave and Patsy falls into another open grave close by. No one offers to help, and as the episode ends we see Eddy trying to climb out, then slipping helplessly back into the grave. Also appearing: Llewella Gideon (Nurse), Gwen Humble (Sondra Lorrance), Ciaran McIntyre (Vicar), Mark Tandy (Mark), Natascha McElhone (Art Gallery Assistant)
