[S1E22] The Pool
Contrast to the Heeler household, this house has a modern, tropical theme with a lot of tropical plants around. On the front, there's a full fence and a car park on the left side of the house. At the backyard, there's a pool and a gazebo.
The episode opens with a flashback of an indoor pool at Wilkes Military Academy on May 15, 1999. Nash Cavanaugh is coaching a group of young boys in a swimming class. The exercise they have to complete requires them to keep their arms above their heads for 60 seconds. One of the boys, Private Jerry Kasher, is having difficulty completing the exercise and appears to be drowning. Suddenly, the shot changes and it's Nash Cavanaugh in the pool drowning. The next shot is of him floating face down in the pool and there is blood behind him.
Lilly and Scotty go talk to Jerry, now 18-years old and he tells them that he really wanted another chance to prove himself to Nash. In the flashback, Jerry jumps back into the pool, raises his arms above his head, and completes the task. Nash is impressed and promises him a prize. Back in the present, Jerry tells Lilly and Scotty that the prize was Nash's respect.
The closing scenes start with Creighton placing his Bronze Star on Dominic's chest, and then Lilly leads him away. Jeffries and Vera release Jerry and R.J. Scotty cleans the words Elisa wrote on the mirror, Lilly takes Dominic's hand as he lies in the hospital bed in a coma. Lilly and Henderson watch the current swim class at Wilkes, and they see Nash's reflection in the pool. As the boys start swimming it fades away.
Contrast to The Heeler Family's House, this house has a modern, tropical theme with a lot of tropical plants around. On the front, there's a full fence and a car park on the left side of the house. At the backyard, there's a pool and a gazebo.
In the previous episode, Keith proves the innocence of convicted murderer Koontz, who had falsely confessed to murdering Lilly. Veronica, who believed that she had been raped the previous year at a party, discovers that she and Duncan had sex while under the influence of GHB; Duncan left that next morning because he believed Veronica was his sister. Veronica spends time with her boyfriend Logan in his pool house, but discovers a hidden video system linking to cameras focused on the bed. Veronica is shocked and goes home, only to find her mother Lianne has returned from rehab.
Veronica dreams about floating on pool rafts with Lilly, in a pool covered with flowers, and they say their final goodbyes. Veronica wakes up and answers the door, telling the unseen visitor, "I was hoping it would be you."

The hustlers then goad Phil into playing pool with them for $20 a ball, Philip loses heavily, having seemingly never played pool before. (He told Geoffery to "get me one of those stick thingys.")
