It’s Gary’s 35th birthday, guys! We know this because everyone is receiving text reminders that Jon set up before his death — very Jon of him. Gary himself gets the reminder while he’s in bed with Maggie. He’s bragging about being the best sex she’s ever had when the message to celebrate his day of birth pings, and that shuts him up — apparently, he hates his annual celebration. Changing the subject, he quizzes Maggie about her unpacked boxes until she snaps and tells him to stay out of her stuff. Yikes.

Later, when she’s out running, Maggie bumps into Rome. The dude’s low-key stalking her. Rome hasn’t called Dr. Heller yet like he promised her he would and Maggie reminds him she still can’t be his therapist. He explains he doesn’t have the courage to talk to anyone else, so she relents a little, agreeing to have lunch with him on Fridays as a friend, but tells him he has to call Dr. Heller.

Meanwhile, Eddie shows up at Gary’s place with decorations and hats to celebrate. Gary is not into it even when Rome also appears singing. Gary tells the others he’s not doing whatever Jon had planned, but just then a driver shows up asking for the birthday boy. It transpires that Jon had set it up that the guys would attend a Bruins fantasy camp. At first, the guys protest that it doesn’t feel right celebrating without Jon, but soon decide that he would’ve wanted them to go.

On the way to the camp, Eddie needs to make a stop at home for his lucky skates/to ask his wife’s permission. Gary is mad about it. When they get there, Eddie explains to his wife Katherine what Jon had planned and asks if she’ll get their son Theo from swim class instead of him. She’s okay with it, and the guys head out in a hurry, during which Eddie leaves his phone behind on the table, and of course, it promptly rings. Thinking it’s her own, Katherine picks it. Outside, Eddie realizes he’s forgotten it and runs back in to retrieve it but it’s too late, Katherine’s already heard from a hotel manager that they couldn’t find the necklace he lost in his room. Katherine realizes he’s having an affair and asks who the woman is. “Trust me I’m an attorney I can find out who it is by lunch,” she informs her husband. So he confesses it’s Delilah. Katherine feels humiliated, and as Eddie’s assuring her no one knows, Gary walks in and overhears. Katherine tells Eddie to get out, so he runs after Gary, who tells Rome what’s happening. Eddie wants to explain, but Rome says he can’t explain that. Rome thinks they have to push through and have a great day and pretend like nothing happened, which he’s good at because he does it every day. Ugh, poor Rome. Gary and Rome head to camp without Eddie.

Over on the female front, Gina is trying to keep D busy to keep her mind off of her grief. They make a quick stop by the under-renovation restaurant, but Delilah is distracted. She really doesn’t get why Jon left a bunch of things for everyone, but no note. She just wants to go to her late husband’s office to clear out his things, so the girls tag along with her to help. When they get to the office, Ashley is on phone telling someone not to liquidate anything yet, but promptly hangs up and hides the file in front of her when the others arrive.

Eddie is trying to calls Delilah to give her a heads up, but she declines it. They get to work clearing through Jon’s things, but when Delilah gets upset and goes to the bathroom to wash her face, the others receive a call from the guys and find out about the affair. Gina is judgy and mad at her friend, who is clearly already distraught with guilt. Delilah starts frantically searching for the note needing to know if the affair led to Jon’s suicide, while Ashley (who actually has said-note) tries to stop her. Ashley tells Delilah she doesn’t think Jon knew. How about you just show us the note, Ash?
