Episode Summary

EDIT
Charlie
AIRED:
April´s brother Charlie and her mother Paige are living with her in her small apartment. It´s very hard for April to see Charlie so sick and that everyone is being nice to him out of pity. Everyone has been told that Charlie has a rare form of cancer and that he is getting treatment for it at UCLA. Later April tells Mitch that Charlie isn´t being treated there, they just use him for research. A scientist is trying to find a way to detect this type of cancer. That means that Charlie doesn´t have so much time left to live. She also tells Mitch that having Charlie around must be such a downer for everyone. But Mitch assures her that Charlie is really inspiring. All the lifeguards take care of Charlie and he has the time of his life with them. Mitch takes him out on a wind jet and he gets the opportunity to drive it. He also writes a song together with Hobie. Meanwhile, it´s time for the annual Taplin dory race. Mitch and Newmie have won the event seven years in a row now, but this year, Mitch has decided to give Hobie a chance at winning and therefore, he will not compete himself. Newmie is convinced he can win the race on his own and has hired April to join him in the dory, only because the rules says that there must be two people in the dory. Hobie doesn´t like that Mitch isn´t entering and convinces him to race anyway. He can´t be the best if he doesn´t beat the best. Hobie and his friend Ingo Dobbins end up right beside Mitch and Newmie for the final run on the beach. Hobie ends up winning the race and Mitch has been beaten for the first time in seven years. At least his own son beat him. Meanwhile, Charlie is struggling to stay awake during the race. After the race, Mitch and Hobie hurry out to Charlie only to discover that he is dead. A funeral for Charlie is later held on the beach.moreless
