This is Aaron
We meet Aaron for the first time when Judy brings him to Lily's for the reception before the funeral.
The memorial service/wake
Rick and Jake
Rick sees Jake as a normal person for the first time when he runs into Jake sitting in the little playhouse after the blow-up with Aaron.
Transfer of control
Manny informs Lily (and later, Jake realizes at the reading of the will), that Lily and Barbara together have a large enough share of the Restaurant to remove Jake if it becomes necessary.
Sign of the time
Lily gives Jake Phil's watch. This is a significant moment because she has very clearly come to his turf (the Restaurant), after hours, and taken control of the entire situation by telling him that Barbara has given her power of attorney over her shares, thus giving Lily 70% control of the restaurant and the sole ability to fire him. She then tells him that she will give him the opportunity to work for all their benefit, clearly placing her in control of his fate. Only then does she give him the watch, acknowledging his separate relationship with Phil, but also signifying that that part of his relationship is over.

The wrong hand
In the goodbye scene between Aaron and Barbara, as the camera flips between the two, we see that when the camera is facing Aaron, he's rubbing his face with his left hand, but when the camera is behind Aaron (facing Barbara), he's rubbing his face with his right hand.
