George's co-reapers become jealous when she's assigned to pluck the soul of a famous rock star planning to give a live concert at a TV studio. But the duty proves to be more of a pain than a pleasure due to the idol's entourage who block George's effort to get close to physically touch him to claim his soul. Mason messes up big time when he is diverted from his reap assignment to flirt with a Goth groupie at the very studio where George is. Roxy's day job as a policewoman comes to the fore in an unexpected way as she's forced to help Mason out.
Meanwhile, Daisy confides in (then reaps) a priest which causes her to reexamine her Catholic roots.
Elsewhere, arrival of Joy's eccentric mother, Phyllis, whom she cannot stand, creates friction in the Lass household when she takes Reggie to the sacred place where George died.
