Ryan manifests a textbook symptom of the grieving process - compulsive eating - but he rejects the notion that he is a "grief cliche". After meeting the man in Lauren's life, Ryan offers unsolicited advice in getting them to the next stage of their relationship. Meanwhile, Ryan tries to snap Danny out of his robust fantasy life.

Ryan King is a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan's alpha-male boss, Stephen has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air. A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for "life change", where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own back stories filled with varying degrees of loss.
On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worst. Ryan's total lack of interest in "the healing process" proves distracting and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren. Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn't really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on.
