She had been in her mother’s favorite coffee shop in Brooklyn when she learned of her death. While she was speaking, Kevin gave her a reassuring look. After the funeral, Kevin saw Sophie with her fiancé, Grant.
Kevin went to Claire’s house during the reception and brought donuts from a place that Sophie liked. He called her, and Sophie left the reception with him. Kevin brought her to the site in the woods where they had hung out the night Jack died. That night, they had ditched the party to go to see Good Will Hunting.

In the 90s, Kevin and Sophie arrived from New York a day early for Rebecca’s birthday. Kevin had a role on Days of Our Lives, but since they cut out his line, Rebecca didn’t know he was still in the episode and hadn’t watched it. She had to get to work, so Sophie and Kevin went to Claire’s house. She had seen Kevin and praised his performance. Claire surprised Sophie with a trip to see the Aurora Borealis, but Sophie was angry. They had saved the money for repairs on the house.
While alone with Claire, Kevin asked her for her mother’s ring to give to Sophie since he couldn’t give her the wedding of her dreams. The ring had a rich history that Claire felt that Kevin had to earn it. When Kevin got back to the house, Rebecca had canceled her birthday dinner. Something was wrong with Kate.
Three-year-old Kevin couldn’t sleep. He missed the sheep mobile from his crib. Jack couldn’t find it, so he woke Rebecca up to ask where it was. Unfortunately, it had gone to Goodwill. Jack brought him back to bed, assuring him that he would find something new to love, like a tiger stuffed animal.
