As life returns to normal in Bloomer, Angus worries about the effect Gil's passing had on the town and hires a grief counsellor, Dr. Bauer, to set up base at town hall and help residents through their issues. However, despite several conflicts presenting themselves all around, Dr. Bauer finds herself without visitors. Poppy is shocked to discover she is pregnant after her one night stand with Dino, and she vainly tries to find out his opinion of kids without arousing his suspicion. Giles interviews for a new assistant after Chloe left for New York City and is surprised when the newly released William "Will" Chesterton shows up on a second chance program for ex-cons. Will is determined to follow in the footsteps of his late brother and become a successful food critic; Giles agrees to give him a trial run at the station so he can work towards his dream.

However, she is stunned when another resident decides to run against her, revealing she enjoys having the bagpipes as her wake-up call. Things turn for the worse when Bulldog decides to side with the resident, convinced that the bagpipes were responsible for the temporary return of hearing in his left ear. Meanwhile, Dino considers buying Café Blossom after Debbie appeals to him for financial help, but Poppy is unhappy with this development as she feels they need to start saving money for their child's college fund.

Meanwhile, Poppy is forced to attend her first Lamaze class alone when Dino gets caught up at Café Blossom. She is shocked to run into her ex-boyfriend Ed Piper there with his new wife, Mei-Ling. Embarrassed to admit that her pregnancy and living situation with Dino is the result of a one-night stand, Poppy pretends she has gotten married to Bulldog, much to Ed's surprise.

However, Will refuses to be a part of the family that abandoned him, and he enlists the help of Bulldog and Dino to help him say the one word he struggles with: "no". Unfortunately, Bulldog and Dino's eagerness to sample the high life puts a crimp in Will's intentions and the three of them wind up getting onboard a private jet headed for the Chesterton family compound in Seattle.

However, Roz's newfound dependence on therapy is threatened when she winds up getting a bill of more than $1,000 for their sessions. When Angus refuses to pay a cent, Roz is faced with delving into the retirement fund. Meanwhile, Bulldog is horrified when he learns of Roz's therapy and fears it will wreck their marriage, so marches down to the practice with Dino tagging along for support.

Faced with the revelation that Richard might be Giles' father, Angus decides to leave town for a while to clear his head. This leaves Richard at the helm of the town selectman position. Roz, Debbie and Poppy become frightful of the chaos he may cause and set out to find out the real identity of Giles' father, but the three of them are in for a surprise when it turns out to be neither of the brothers.

Roz is surprised by Bulldog's behaviour and later comes to the conclusion that he still hasn't grieved for Gil properly and the project is his way of doing so. When Lucas reveals the town zoning commission has plans to knock the building down to make way for a strip mall, Roz fears Bulldog will never move on.

However, Roz finds herself regressing to their childhood when Denise gains the affections of everyone in town, making her feel like second best once again.

Giles is shocked by the transformation of his ex-father and comes to the conclusion that it is down to the woman he married in Vegas, the loud and bubbly Hilda Bridge. Giles is annoyed when Angus won't see eye to eye with Lucas on the joyriding issue, so he decides to make him jealous by finally getting to know his real father; the transsexual hunter Alexis Winifred.
