Taylor: Brot? Say something?
Brot: Go away, Taylor.
Taylor: Oh, my God. Could you look at me?
Brot: I don't want you to see me like this.
Taylor: I need to see you.
David: I'm sorry. You know something? Actually, no, I'm not.
Krystal: You don't have to say anything.
Angie: Yeah, I think I do. Have you completely lost your mind?
Zach: Hey, Kendall's plane just landed. She'll be here soon.
Bianca: God, it'll be so great to have her home.
Zach: Where she belongs. Did you bring it?
Reese: Oh, yes, yes, I did. It is right here.
Zach: Ok, let's go. You all know the plan, right?
Bianca: Yeah, I put together a visitor's schedule and everybody has been assigned their shift.
Reese: Yep, and that way Kendall will never have to be alone.
Zach: No, surrounded by music and family.
Bianca: And love.
Zach: Yeah, and that's what's going to make her wake up. Hang those pictures.
Reese: Here we go.
Jesse: Sorry to interrupt. Can I get a word with you?
Zach: A little busy right now.
Jesse: It's kind of important right now. We need to talk about Richie Novak's murder.
Aidan: Annie, it's ok, you can trust me. You're not crazy, are you? You're just incredibly smart. All I want to know is, is what you said to Ryan.
Aidan: That's right. Did you tell him about my part in it?
Annie: Is it time?
Aidan: Time for what?
Annie: The wedding reception.
Ryan: Whatever Annie is and whatever she's done, she's still Emma's mom.
Greenlee: Well, that's true but -- what are you saying? You want to help Annie after everything she's put you through, put Emma through?
Ryan: I don't have a choice, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Why don't you just let the police handle it. Let Jesse --
Ryan: Because -- because -- because it's my fault. Annie is the way that she is because of me.
Brot: You think I'm disgusting.
Taylor: No, I don't.
Brot: I saw it, Taylor. You looked at me and you had to pick your jaw up from the ground.
Taylor: I'm -- I'm in shock. I thought you were dead and now you're here. I -- I just -- I need a second to process this.
Brot: You had a second to look at me right here and see me but you couldn't. Just like everyone else, all they see is this.
Jake: Do you want to -- do you want to -- you could go after him. You want to go after him?
Taylor: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Jake: Didn't Frankie tell you? Didn't he -- didn't he warn you what he --
Taylor: What he would look like? Yes. I -- I saw him after the explosion. I knew it would be bad but --
Jake: He looks -- it's very shocking to see somebody that you love look the way that --
Taylor: I never should have reacted like that. Why did you tell him to leave?
Jake: I didn't tell him to leave.
Taylor: When I got here, I heard you tell Brot to go!
Jake: No, I don't -- no, I didn't. I said, "Go to you." I said -- that's what I said, "Go to you."
Taylor: Well, he wouldn't.
Jake: He's just scared. The guy is just, obviously, very scared of something here.
Taylor: He's afraid that I would react exactly the way that I did react which is why he let me believe he was dead. I didn't get it, you know, when Frankie tried to explain it. I didn't get it. I thought he was -- I thought Brot was just cruel and selfish. But seeing him? I guess Brot did die over there, at least most of him, anyway. With that one stupid look, I finished off the rest.
Brot: Why can't you just leave me alone?
Frankie: Because, Brot, I care for you. She thought you were dead. She sees you for the first time and what, you don't think she's going to blink?
Brot: You wouldn't understand.
Frankie: Try me.
Brot: The look on Taylor's face. That look, Hub.
Frankie: Hey, she was surprised.
Brot: She was repulsed. I can deal with the delivery guy who leaves before I can even give him a tip or the bartender who decides, in a moment of pity, to slide me a drink on the house, but to feel that from her, to see it in her eyes?
Frankie: She loves you, Brot.
Brot: I'm not the same person anymore.
Frankie: Well, neither is she. You think you're the only one who came back broken? Iraq, man, it changed us all, especially Taylor -- when she lost you.
Krystal: When I'm with David, the pain of losing her eases up just a little bit, and the relief I get from that. I don't know, I just -- I just end up losing control.
Angie: I can see that.
Krystal: I'm not proud of what I've done.
Angie: I'm not judging you. But, Krystal, Tad is one of my very best friends.
Krystal: I know.
Angie: Oh, sweetheart. You know he doesn't deserve this.
Krystal: I know, I know. And when I think about what it would do to him if he found out, I just hate myself.
Angie: So, what are you going to do?
Angie: What -- what -- what do you mean, "Nothing"?
Krystal: There's nothing to do, because it is never going to happen again. Angie, I love Tad. I love my girls, and I will not give them up, especially not for David. Please, Angie, it is over. I -- I mean, it never even began.
Krystal: Honestly, I -- I don't know what I would do without Tad.
Angie: Sit. I know that it doesn't feel like this right now, but you're going to be ok. I promise you. Oh, come here, sweetie.
Greenlee: You can't seriously still blame yourself.
Ryan: Everything that Annie has done, everything is because she loves me.
Greenlee: In a completely unhealthy, unhinged way. She killed her own brother. She had her daughter abducted. These are not acts of love. This is desperation, insanity.
Ryan: I know it is, I know, but I drove her to it, Greenlee. I drove her to it. I married her. I said that I would love her and that I wouldn't stop, and I did. I stopped loving her, and she could see it, and ever since then, she's been hanging on.
Greenlee: You can't control how you feel.
Ryan: I know I can't control that, but I can control how I act and how I should have acted. I saw this happening. I saw -- I saw her unraveling, you know? And I -- I didn't stop it and I could -- I should have. I should have handled her differently. And I'm not saying that I don't love you.
Greenlee: I know.
Ryan: I'm not saying that. I'm just saying that I really got to focus on Emma right now, because she loves her mom so much, you know, and if there's anything that I can do to help Annie through this, then --
Greenlee: Then you will. Your daughter comes first. I understand.
Ryan: Do you? You understand that?
Greenlee: Emma's a lucky little girl. I told you you'd be an amazing father.
Ryan: I really should have listened to you. I should, um, get back to the hospital and -- Corrina's coming over to watch Emma.
Greenlee: Well, I -- I could wait for her. Do you mind if I say goodbye to Emma?
Ryan: No, I don't mind that. I think Emma would really like that. I think that's a great idea. So, I'm just going to -- Bye.
Zach: Now, Jesse, we both know that Novak deserved to die.
Jesse: And we both know that Annie should have gone to jail for killing him.
Zach: Why do you want to do that? Why do you want to waste taxpayers' money? What about self-defense? My way worked best.
Jesse: Now, see, that's where you lose me, Zach.
Zach: Why? I did what I did to protect a little girl.
Jesse: No, you withheld information in a murder investigation. That's a punishable offense, Zach.
Zach: Ok, write me a ticket. I'm going to check on my wife.
Jesse: Yeah, ok.
Aidan: What's your angle here, Annie, or are you saving that for a rainy day, or until you get out of this hole? Talk to me! Admit to me that this is an act. Do you have any idea where Ryan is right now? Most probably he's with Greenlee making love in front of the fire or maybe they're both with Emma picking out a nice Christmas tree, like one, big happy family -- without you.
Aidan: Hurts to think about it, doesn't it?
Annie: No, get him away from me. No, don't -- don't let him come any closer! Get him away, somebody, ah!
Ryan: You know what? This is the second time I have caught you inside with Annie. This is your last chance, Aidan. What the hell are you doing here?
[Zach and Bianca get Kendall settled in her hospital room]
Ryan: Annie has totally lost it.
Aidan: She is a manipulator, Ryan. Look at everything she's gotten away with. She played you, me, Di, your own daughter.
Ryan: Are you kidding me? Annie is sick, all right? She's sick. That's why she's here. She needs help.
Aidan: And -- and love and support. Ryan, can't you see what she's doing? She still wants you back and what better way than to make you feel sorry for her.
Ryan: I can think of a few better ways, actually.
Aidan: It's working already. I mean, look, you're here, aren't you, checking in on her, again. You should be at home with Emma and let the professionals do their thing.
Ryan: I am here right now to make sure that Annie gets the help that she needs and deserves. There's nothing wrong with that.
Aidan: Let's just call it what it is, shall we? You came here to ease your guilty conscience.
Jesse: Ryan Lavery, this is Dr. Richards. He's here for a court-ordered evaluation.
Ryan: Oh, yeah, ok. Annie's right in there.
Dr. Richardson: Thank you.
Jesse: So, what'd I just walk in on?
Ryan: That is, um, exactly what I'm trying to figure out.
Frankie: Why'd you come here?
Brot: I told you. When I found out L.T. was hurt, I needed to see her. But she's ok now. And Taylor's legs, they're getting stronger every single day.
Frankie: Oh, so -- so that's the deal. You can reconnect with her so long as you both were damaged? That's messed up.
Brot: I'll never be the same, ok, never. But Taylor, with the help of that doctor, she'll be back to her old self in no time.
Frankie: Not without you.
Brot: She's seen me. She knows that I'm alive. Taylor doesn't have to grieve any more.
Frankie: That's not how it works, and you know it.
Brot: Why not? Why can't this be my way of setting her free?
Frankie: Maybe she doesn't want to be set free. Maybe she wants to be with you. I think you should find out.
Brot: There's nothing left to say, Hub, nothing.
Frankie: How about "Goodbye"? I mean, if you're going to walk away again, at least you could say "Goodbye."
Brot: I just don't see your point. I'm sorry.
Frankie: Yeah, yeah, you are, my friend, because the old Brot, he had guts, and he would never walk away from a fight.
Taylor: Why did I do that? I couldn't keep it together for two seconds?
Jake: You were in shock. That's shocking.
Taylor: But that's -- that's what it's like for him every day. He looks into stranger's eyes, and he's met with this stunned reaction.
Jake: You're not a stranger, right?
Taylor: That is what makes it worse. How could he do this to me? How could he let me believe that he's dead. Maybe he -- maybe he wishes he were dead. Maybe -- maybe he wishes they had just let him die over there.
Jake: No, no, you can't think like that. He lived, and thank God he lived. And that -- that's -- alone, got to count for something.
Taylor: You sound awfully certain.
Jake: Well, he is still the man that you fell in love with, no matter what.
Taylor: Jake, you don't have to say that.
Jake: I know. I know, but he is a person. So maybe you should stop thinking about his face and start searching for his soul.
Jesse: So, why did Aidan say he was here?
Ryan: He thinks Annie is faking all this.
Jesse: Hmm. Still trying to work that double-agent angle, huh? You believe him, Ryan?
Ryan: Honestly, I don't know what to believe anymore, Jesse. I don't.
Jesse: Well, it is possible he was actually trying to save Emma. I mean, that's Special Ops training, man. Those boys are intense.
Ryan: Yeah, but --
Jesse: Yeah, but it is also possible that he was working with Annie, and now he's just scrambling to save his own ass.
Ryan: This doesn't make any sense. I keep finding him here, talking to Annie and -- and then -- I'm sorry, but the night that Emma was kidnapped --
Jesse: The night the tornadoes hit.
Ryan: Yeah, he was a loose cannon, totally -- totally out of control. He had just broken up with Greenlee. He knew that I was right in the middle of that. So, if Annie had gone to him that night with her plan, I don't understand at all why he would decide to help me then. Why? Out of the goodness of his heart? Come on.
Jesse: Well, it does make more sense that he'd be out for revenge or at least trying to get Greenlee back.
Ryan: Yes, exactly.
Jesse: Tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to keep my eye on him, all right, see if I can't get to the truth.
Ryan: And we both know where that is. We just can't get our hands on it.
["Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" plays softly]
David: From what I can tell so far, there really hasn't been any change.
Zach: That's original.
Bianca: We want Kendall to be around family and friends as much as possible.
David: I can see there's a real party atmosphere around here.
Bianca: That helps, right? The music and talking to her. That could bring her out of her coma.
David: Can't hurt. I'll leave you to it.
Reese: Hey, how is she?
David: She'll fill you in.
Reese: Well, he's a real charmer, that one.
Greenlee: He has his moments, few and far between but he has them. So, Bianca told me about this shift thing. I think it's a great idea. Apparently, I'm up after you.
Reese: How's it going? How's she doing?
Bianca: I don't know. I mean, I think she's comfortable. At least I hope -- I hope she is. Zach is in with her right now.
Greenlee: Well, where's Erica? I'm surprised she's not out of her hospital bed, manning the door with a velvet rope.
Bianca: She's still recovering. In fact, I'm going to go visit her right now.
Bianca: Can you do me a favor?
Reese: Mm-hmm, anything.
Bianca: When Zach is finished, can you drive him home? I think he needs to get out of here and spend some time with his boys.
Reese: Whatever you need.
Bianca: Thank you.
Reese: Ok, bye.
Zach: I'm so glad you're back. I'm -- I'm sorry, I shouldn't have sent you away. But you're here now, surrounded by people who love you. You got to keep fighting. I don't care what you do, but you got to get back to me.
David: Have you seen this? Kendall Slater's back. I've been monitoring her vitals.
Angie: I'll take a look in a minute.
David: Ok. Is there something I can do to help you?
Angie: You can help me understand why you're preying on Krystal.
David: So now I'm preying.
Angie: The woman just lost her daughter.
David: Our daughter. And it was just a kiss, an innocent impulse.
Angie: You don't do innocent.
David: You don't really know me, Angela. And I've been known to surprise people.
Angie: So I've heard.
Angie: Krystal is married.
David: Yeah, so I've heard -- to Tad the drag.
Angie: Look, you really need to leave her alone, David.
David: I'm not the one who keeps ending up on her doorstep.
Angie: Then don't answer your damn door, ok? The woman is -- is grieving. She's confused. The last thing she needs is to be manipulated by you.
David: And the last thing I need is a lecture from you. You're out of line.
Angie: What is the angle, David? Are -- are you using Krystal to get back at Tad, or do you actually have some sort of twisted feelings for her?
David: All right. Are you through? My relationship with Krystal is none of your damn business.
Jake: Ready to go up?
Taylor: Yeah. Did you find Brot? What happened?
Frankie: He's gone.
Taylor: Where? Did he say anything?
Frankie: Well, we got into it, and he took off.
Taylor: Because of me.
Jake: No, it's because of him.
Frankie: Well, Brot's convinced himself that he's a completely different person. I tried to get through to him, but --
Jake: It's all on him. She did not ask him to come looking for her, so --
Taylor: But he did, and that I ruined everything.
Frankie: Taylor, you could have had a completely perfect reaction. He still would have seen what he wanted to see.
Jake: It just makes it easier for him to walk away.
Taylor: That doesn't make it easier for me. I needed that chance. I needed to look at him and see if he's still in there somewhere.
Frankie: He is. He just has a different face.
Taylor: But I don't care about his face. I didn't fall in love with him for that.
Jake: I need to excuse myself. I have patients.
Frankie: The man is scared, Taylor.
Taylor: The Brot we knew wasn't scared of anything.
Frankie: Yeah, well, he's forgotten.
Taylor: Then why can't he let me remind him?
Jesse: You can't take the blame for this. You can't drive somebody crazy.
Ryan: Yeah. Well, you can drive them pretty close, and I shouldn't have let it get this far.
Jesse: Ryan, you kidding me? You did everything in your power to keep your family safe, including breaking the law and lying to the police.
Ryan: Yeah. I'm sorry about that, Jesse.
Jesse: No, you're not. Whatever, I get it. Look, if it wasn't for you, Annie might not have made it out of that place alive. You saw my boys. They were about to pounce, but you stepped up, man. You -- you talked her down, you kept her calm, you kept her and everybody else from getting hurt. You did good, all right?
Ryan: Well, thank you, but I didn't do it just for Annie.
Jesse: You did it for Emma. You're a dad, man. Go home. Hug your little girl.
Ryan: It doesn't feel right to leave right now, Jesse. It just doesn't.
Jesse: Ryan, go home.
Reese: You guys, I have a question for you, because I forgot something and maybe you can help me. Last week, we sat around the table and we ate -- what did we eat? You know what we ate?
Reese: Turkey! Turkey, that's right because it was Thanksgiving. Hmm. Does anyone know what holiday comes next?
Zach: We really got to get her on "Jeopardy!"
Reese: Yes, we do -- Christmas. Christmas, huh? Doesn't really look like Christmas around here.
Zach: No, we're not. We are --
Reese: Oh, yes. Yes, we are. I think it is about time we decked the halls. We could use some lights -- yes, lights, and wreaths and blow-up candy canes.
Zach: Oh, candy canes, that's nice.
Reese: Yeah. So, where's the loot? Is it in the garage?
Zach: We don't even have a tree.
Reese: Yet. We'll get one, ok? And in the meantime, we can decorate the house, right? Is that fun? Does it sound like fun? Does it sound like fun?
Reese: Yes. Yes.
Zach: I can't help you. I got my hands full.
Reese: You got your hands full. Ok, Zach, give me the baby. Give me the baby. Oh, hands not so full anymore. Now, step away from the baby and go get the decorations.
Zach: Friends, little backup here, huh? She can't talk to me like that.
Reese: Oh, backup. Ok, he wants backup. Well, your backup is in the holiday spirit. Why don't you try it sometime?
["Silent Night" plays softly]
Bianca: It's almost Christmas, Kendall. Two of your favorite things rolled into one -- twinkly lights and shopping. You just got to wake up. You got to see how much Spike and Ian have grown. See Miranda and meet your new niece. She's beautiful. She already smiles, especially when Zach walks in the room. Kendall -- when you wake up, we got to have a talk. Kendall, you have so many people who love you -- Zach and Mom and me and Ryan and Greenlee and the kids and Reese. She hasn't even met you. She loves you. Can't you feel that? Why isn't that enough? Please. Please let it be enough.
David: You have no right to judge me or Krystal.
Angie: Krystal is my friend.
David: And she just buried our daughter. So why don't you let her do what she needs to do?
Angie: Even if it means her marriage?
David: You mean your marriage, don't you?
Angie: Excuse me?
David: Well, that's what we're really talking about here, isn't it? In the medical world, we call it projecting.
Angie: What the hell is your point?
David: My point is, your husband's secret lover for the last 20 years is now living in your home, right?
David: And you're in the middle of your own domestic crisis. So why don't you deal with that? Krystal is doing just fine.
Angie: Because you're making sure of it.
David: Because I care. Krystal is hurting, Angie. Ok? And Tad the saint is clearly not cutting the mustard. So, she came to me for help. Shame on me for giving it to her. What a bastard I am, huh?
Angie: Krystal is scared, and she's running out of control. That's right, shame on you. Shame on you for using that to get close to her.
David: You listen to me. Krystal's heart has been ripped out, ok? Shattered into a million pieces. Now, you might think I am a lowlife, but I am still a doctor, ok? My area of expertise, broken hearts. So, like it or not, that is my job, to take them and put them back together again. And that's exactly what I'm going to do.
Jesse: How'd it go?
Dr. Richardson: Everything I've seen points to Borderline Personality Disorder -- the intense bouts of anger, anxiety, aggression.
Jesse: Did you get anything out of her?
Dr. Richardson: Bits and pieces. It appears Annie suffers from severe emotional abandonment issues stemming from her childhood. It's extremely common in cases like these.
Jesse: So, what's the real deal? You think she's legit?
Dr. Richardson: Oh, yes.
Jesse: Ok. Thanks, doc.
Dr. Richardson: You're welcome.
Jesse: You get all that?
Zach: Look, there's more green stuff. What's this?
Reese: Oh, you know what? I think we've probably got enough decorations. We should put that away.
[Reese mouths words]
Zach: Enough? Never enough. It's Christmas.
Reese: Yeah, but I don't --
Zach: Uh, Miranda, what do you think we should do with this?
Reese: Zach --
Miranda: Reese, the elf dance.
Zach: Oh, you do an elf dance? Come here.
Reese: No, I don't do an elf dance. I just -- oh, it's something Bianca and I did. We just -- it was like a mini jig -- barely. I just -- really, I just walked around the house with an elf hat on.
Zach: All right. So, it was a jig with an elf hat. That's an elf dance. I would like to see that.
Reese: No, you would not.
Zach: Yes, I would. What do you say?
Miranda: Please, please, please, please?
Reese: "Please, please?" You're killing me. How do I say no to that?
Zach: You don't.
["We Wish You a Merry Christmas" plays softly]
Greenlee: I so wish you were awake right now, because you'd understand better than anyone, and then you'd tell me what to do. I know, I know -- something I usually complain about, but -- and I'll take this to the grave. Most of the time, you're right. What should I do, Kendall? I love him --
Greenlee: So much it hurts. But I don't know. It just feels like -- I think I've lost Ryan for good.
[Ryan overhears from the doorway]
Taylor: You came back.
Brot: Don't turn around.
Taylor: Thought you left town.
Brot: On my way. I just wanted to say goodbye. I figured I owed you that much.
Taylor: So that's that? I have no say?
Brot: What's to say, Taylor? You didn't sign up for this.
Taylor: I signed up for you, I thought.
Brot: The old me, the man you were going to marry. That man doesn't exist anymore.
Taylor: I don't buy that.
Brot: Your face, L.T. You didn't see it, but when you looked at me --
Taylor: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I'm -- I'm in a little bit of shock here. You didn't even give me a chance.
Brot: A chance for what? I shouldn't have come.
Taylor: It is you. You are all here -- All of you. I can see that now.
Reese: Ok, and now for the finale of the fabulous elf dance. Whoa!
[Reese trips on a box and falls into Zach's arms]
Miranda: That wasn't a part of the dance.
Reese: I --
Zach: I'm, uh -- I'm going to check on Kendall.
Bianca: Hi. What happened?
Reese: I have no idea.
Aidan: I nearly died because of Annie. You really think it's strange that I'd be keeping tabs on her?
Jesse: Yeah, just a little bit.
Aidan: I just want to make sure that she doesn't hurt anybody else.
Jesse: A, that's my job. B, take a look around. She ain't going nowhere, Aidan.
Aidan: So the doctors really think she lost it, huh?
Jesse: You know, if you really want to make me believe that you weren't working with Annie, I'd spend a little less time here and a lot more time minding your own business. Just a little suggestion.
Aidan: Duly noted.
Greenlee: You know, I keep telling Ryan not to blame himself, but it's our fault that Annie got sick. It is. We did this to her. I mean, if we had just stayed away from each other, none of this would've happened. "But it did happen, Greenlee, right?" Isn't that what you'd say? Finally, there's nothing holding me back. But there is. Annie will always be there holding us back. Our love destroyed her. We can both try to deny it and ignore it, but we can't forget it. You know, you almost made a believer out of me. What Ryan and I had -- I thought our love was bigger than anything the universe could throw at us. I was wrong.
[Greenlee turns around and sees Ryan]
