Adam was not thrilled with the therapy. Lysistrata made them go up to their bedroom. She had Liza assert herself by first admitting that she liked the other side of the bed better and then she tied up Adam to the bedposts with her scarves. Lysistrata locked them in, so Liza started kissing Adam. Morgan questioned Maria, who is getting sicker, about her relationship with Aidan. Morgan also found the safe that Aidan told her about.
