AMC Recap Written by Gisele

Marissa brings J.R. breakfast and tries to shield him from a newspaper article intimating that he's a drunk, but he reads it then considers himself lucky that he is getting treatment and has so much to live for. Meanwhile, Scott gets himself sloshed at ConFusion and refuses J.R.'s help when he and Marissa find him there. Although J.R. urges him to protect his dad from Annie, Scott says she's not the enemy, and he won't return to the Chandler Mansion, because he's just a reminder of his dad to Adam. Scott feels if he tells the truth, everything will go to hell. While Scott sleeps, J.R. tells Marissa he thinks his cousin knows who killed his father.

Brot finds a nervous Natalia at the police station -- she's been up all night filling out reports and getting debriefed about discharging her weapon on her very first day as a police officer. During a meeting with a psychiatrist, she seems centered about her decision to shoot Aidan and feels ready if she has to do it again. When the doctor orders a week of desk duty, Natalia asks for Jesse's help but he sides with the doc's recommendation which disappoints her, so she goes to drink at ConFusion. Brot suggests she come to terms with having almost killed someone instead of trying to forget about it. Natalia declines to let Jesse get her off desk duty.

When Jesse gets a tip that Aidan and Kendall's getaway car is at Wildwind, Zach asks him to let them get away and lets him read Kendall's note. Amanda is afraid she killed David when she hit him on the head with a shovel in the stables, but Jake assures her he's ok. When David wakes up, Jake suggests he was hit by Aidan when he saw Kendall, and they got away. David calls Jesse and reports his sighting, but the police chief delays sending an officer much to Zach's relief. Now Zach wants to start leaning on Annie. David continues to grill Amanda about what really happened, especially when he finds his medical bag missing bandages and medicine. When he accuses Jake of hitting him, she confesses she did it to help her friends and had to lie to him about it, because he's such an unlikeable control freak. Jesse comes by to get his statement, but David denies having seen Kendall. Later, he admits to Amanda that he did it to get on her good side. While David dreams that he and Amanda are kissing, she's having fun with Jake in the stables. At the hospital, Annie locks the door before allowing Emma to open her eyes then urges her to keep what she saw at Wildwind secret. If she doesn't keeps quiet, Annie warns her daughter that something bad will happen. Then she opens the door and informs Ryan and Frankie that Emma is awake. While Frankie examines Emma, Ryan warns Annie that he's going to ask Emma what happened at Wildwind. Zach shows up and orders Annie to tell the truth. When that doesn't work, Ryan questions Emma alone but gets nothing. Realizing that he, Ryan, and Annie all had sociopaths in their lives growing up, Zach determines that it ends here.
