After Leanne makes amends with her ex-husband Noah, who apologizes for his philandering during their marriage, Leanne tries to set Randy and Teresa up on a date. When Vi finds out about this she confronts Randy by stripping naked in front of everyone at the town fair and demands that Randy sees her for who she really is and come to terms with his true feelings.

What no one knows is that everything, in actuality, is part of Leanne's master plan to tie up loose ends before she passes on.
