Around the same time, Sonny is sitting on the docks remembering Brenda. It is her birthday. Mike talks to him and tells him he needs to let Brenda go.

"You don't know how to grieve Michael, and it makes me afraid for you. When somebody dies, people come together and they cry and they're nice to each other and they comfort one another and then they go on. And that's the part that you don't get. The living part. I guess the injustice of having to go on with life when someone you loved can't makes you think that there's no justice at all. Now, why don't you give Brenda the gift that she'd really want? Let her go. And give yourself permission to live without her."
