Jay has been steadily drinking to pysch himself up to tell his wife that he is gay - but he doesn't get the chance to do this, instead he is told she died in the car accident he had heard about earlier in the evening.
Now Jay just doesn't know what to do. He begins drinking more and more to block everything out, it was like he was hoping that it was all a bad dream and he would soon wake up. He had now lost his chance to tell the one person who was so important to him the truth, and it was literally really eating him alive.,
Jay meets Scott, and they seem to click. Jay sees someone who he doesn't know, who offers to listen to him if he wants to talk - and boy does Jay need to speak to someone, especially someone impartial.
Their friendship grows, but then morphs into something even deeper. and the two start a sort of relationship, Now I say a sort of relationship, as Jay still seems to be in limbo most of the time - holding onto the guilt he feels for never admitting to Misty or anyone else that he was gay, but he never seems to really grieve for Misty.
Does Jay actually love Scott, or is it just something to do with Scott being the first person he told he was gay? Will Jay actually grieve for Misty and accept things as they are, and does Jay actually love Jay or is he just more or less using Scott?
