Season 2018 Episode 24 | 6m 41s | Video has closed captioning.

When a mother of a young boy dies suddenly but expectedly, the father goes to great lengths to keep her alive with the son. He records hours of her talking, plays the recording, and hammers the door shut. As the boy grows up, he gets to have a relationship with his mother, who he thinks is a door. The door is as much of a parent as his father.
