Alaska is drunk one night and throws a fit. She asks Pudge and Colonel to distract the Eagle Scout. They do, and she takes off. The next morning there is an assembly in the gym. Alaska is dead. There was a truck who jacknifed in the road and she ran straight into the cop car. Pudge, Colonel, and Takumi try to find out why, holding their own little investigation. Alaska forgot about her mother, who died on this day. She wanted to go put flowers on her mother's grave. They also find many other clues as to why she would want to end her own life. So, when they go down to the smoking hole, they throw in a ciggarette for Alaska, because she would want one too.
