Where We Left Off: After her tropical-themed heart-to-heart with fisherman Angel, Cathy revealed that she had received bad news from her doctor: Her tumors were growing. And the news came just as Paul had asked for a divorce. The afterlife has to got to be better than this, right?
What's Next: It turns out that Angel was not some exotic fisherman, but a paramedic trying to save Cathy before she underwent major surgery. Post-surgery, Cathy will re-examine her decision to undergo more chemo as her pain and depression worsen. Much change is ahead in the final season as Cathy decides to quit her job, Paul's new career heats up, Andrea heads to college and Adam prepares to get his driver's license. Fortunately, Cathy has a therapist (special guest star Kathy Najimy) to turn to.
