Lisa even apologized to Sutton and the rest of the group, explaining that she had simply been misdirecting her anger at Sutton when in reality, she was just struggling to deal with her mother’s death (especially that day, as she had just received all of Lois‘ belongings).

Lisa broke down and said, “I am trying to figure how I can live without my mother,” Lisa said.
