The fall season finale got a lot of fans heartbroken. The emotional episode showed Matt's house catching fire in what can be termed the most significant accident of the series. Fortunately, in the new season, no one got hurt in the disaster; but the building was left in ruins.

The combustion was ruled arson; leaving everyone to wonder who wanted the house destroyed. The law enforcement is working on finding who the culprit is.
