Rachel's grandfather acts like a grouch most of the time. Rachel resents having to spend time going through the motions of pretending to enjoy the Sunday visits. When she decides to take on the task of walking with him regularly after school, she starts learning about his life, by seeing his accomplishments. The extra time with Izzy -- her grandfather, cuts in to the time with her best friend Helena and her new boyfriend Lewis. In "After the Rain", we watch Rachel juggle her time to fit in all that seems important.
