Scene shifts to to a Grief and Loss support group that Grace is attending. There are at least six other people with her. We are at the six month anniversary of the plane’s disappearance.
GRACE: When Cal was sick I wanted to make the most of every moment. That’s why we were on that damn trip in the first place. Not only did I lose my son, but I lost my husband, too. I felt like I had no one left. But I did have someone left my daughter. And she’s what brought me here today. I mean, people say to me, “Grace, you look great. You’re so strong.
The camera pans to Danny.
MAN: Well, thanks for sharing, Grace.
DANNY: Now, that’s the first time insulting a woman ever made her smile.
GRACE: [CHUCKLES] Well, I-I guess I asked for it.

Grace Proves She is a Woman with a Mind of Her Own
Maybe Grace’s decisions are wrong, maybe she only thinks about herself, but whatever it is, unlike most other characters who are literally being driven by a voice that they are interpreting as “Callings”, Grace is the one character who seems to have a mind of her own. She takes the call when she knows it’s the right time and sticks to her decisions (most of the times) in spite of everything…
Grace took a good two years before she finally got over her grieving and came to accept the fact that her husband and son were dead. She had completely abandoned her household chores and Olive and was cooped up until she realized that it was time for her to get back to business. She not only went for therapy but also took up charges to fix their financial problems by starting her own catering business. However, even when that failed, she did not immediately go around looking for help or support, but when Danny approached to help her, she did not turn down the offer considering that it would be beneficial for both her and her daughter.
