“Chasing Life” Season 1 Episode 8 “Death Becomes Her” aired on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on ABC Family. Leo was everybody’s fairy godfather. He helped the people in the support group fulfill their last wishes. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Previously on “Chasing Life” (“Death Becomes Her” Episode 8), Jackson (Andy Mientus), one of the members in the support group, had already accepted his fate. His days were numbered and would die anytime soon. He had one wish though, and that was to attend his own funeral. According to Jackson, a funeral is an event, a party, arranged for a person’s honor. Then what sense would it make if the person was not around anymore, right? Leo made this happen. It was a very touching moment. This led to April (Italia Ricci) think about her funeral. You see, the people present in the said event gave their testimonies on why Jackson would be missed. Jackson, on the other hand, shared on how he played the game, only to have lost in the end.

Just a little rewind… Before they headed to Jackson’s live funeral, April and Leo (Scott Michael Foster) went into the strip club along with Meg (Alycia Grant). Meg, wearing a blonde wig, danced and stripped. This scene was very empowering. Meg felt good about her body even if it betrayed her because of her condition.

After the funeral, Leo shared to April on how he enjoys helping people. Then they kissed and had sex. They discussed Leo’s condition. In all fairness, there is still hope in Leo’s condition. He could just have the tumor removed. However, after going through the possible risks, he decided that he would die in his own terms.  Could this be a front?

Meanwhile, Brenna (Haley Ramm) went on a school-related trip in Miami with Greer (Gracie Dzienny). Miami was just an hour away from where her half-sister Natalie (Jessica Meraz) lives. So they decided to go there. Natalie was not welcoming. She did not want anything to do with Brenna. Even so, she invited them for a drink with her friends. She asked Brenna and Greer if they were lesbians. Greer had too much of a drink and got sick, and obviously, Natalie was not at all helpful.
