When we open Steve is celebrating the opening of he and his partner Matthew's architectural firm. Then his son falls off the roof, but is miraculously unhurt. Monica caught him, and unseen to the family, she also examines an angel key chain. This causes Steve to take his second car, a dumpy little model, and he's thrown out in an accident. When Steve wakes up, five years have passed, and we learn that his wife Bonnie has fallen in love with Matthew. Thinking her was a permanent vegetable, she's divorced Steve.
