At the Valley Inn, Anna tells David that she would love to start all over with him, but that they should take it slow for a while. Maggie comforts Bianca at the wedding hall. She reminds Bianca that a wonderful wedding will not hide the fact that she was raped. When Maggie leaves to get them some drinks, Michael shows up and locks the hall doors behind him.

David asks Maggie what’s going on, but Maggie tells him that she promised not to say anything. At the hospital, Joe tells Jackson that he will run a DNA test so they can be sure that Greenlee is his daughter. Jackson asks Tad to go find Greenlee and make sure she doesn’t do anything stupid. He later goes back home and asks Erica why she tried to keep him from his daughter. Erica defends herself and says she never knew that Greenlee was his daughter for sure.

Tad reaches Greenlee’s apartment and sees smoke pouring out from under her door. He manages to break in and put out the fire. Liza walks in just then and Tad tells her that he can’t find Greenlee anywhere. Tad wonders if she could be with Juan Pablo. Meanwhile, Greenlee gets in her car and starts to cry. She then looks out the window and sees Juan Pablo standing beside her car. Juan gets in and asks Greenlee what’s going on. Greenlee gets furious and accuses Juan Pablo of always trying to save
damsels in distress. She asks Juan to give back her keys and get out of her car. Juan shakes his head and tells her he can’t let her drive in such a condition. The two struggle for a while and then end up in a lip lock.
