Reese: To the year ahead. I hope it is filled with lots of hope, love, and laughter.
Zach: Me, too. Cheers.
Reese: Mmm. It's good. Wow. You know, all that was missing was my love, and my New Year's kiss.
[Reese laughs and Zach kisses her]
Reese: Um -- um, I should call Bianca. You know, she might -- she might be stuck in traffic or something.
Zach: I think she would have called if she would have been stuck somewhere, so --
Reese: Yeah, well, that, um -- I -- was that -- was that a little weird just now? That --
Zach: I think we both know what's going on here.
Simon: You're right. Reese was my fiancÚ. You must be Bianca. I saw the ring and assumed you were the lucky woman. I heard about the engagement.
Bianca: You did?
Simon: Reese's father filled me in. Congratulations.
Ryan: Will you marry me?
Greenlee: I can't. I can't marry you. I'm so sorry.
Ryan: Well, what -- hold on, hold on, hold -- wait a second. We just found our way back to -- don't do this. Don't -- don't pull away from --
Greenlee: I don't have a choice.
Ryan: Yes, yeah, we always have a choice. I chose you. It's -- it's Annie, right? It's Annie. You're afraid of Annie. She can't -- she can't hurt you anymore. She can't. She's out of --
Greenlee: You can't -- you can't promise that. I've had this dream twice. I was in my wedding dress.
Ryan: What's wrong with that?
Greenlee: I was dead, drowned in a bathtub. It's an omen. I know it.
Ryan: Greenlee, since when do you believe in superstitions?
Greenlee: This is different. It was a message, Ryan. Marriage will be the end of us.
Dr. Sinclair: I asked you a question. Do you remember leaving here?
Annie: It was bad. It was really, really bad.
Dr. Sinclair: Why was it bad?
Annie: I hurt my daddy.
Dr. Sinclair: You mean you hurt Ryan. You know he's not your father.
Annie: You better untie me or my daddy's going to be really mad when he gets here. He's going to be mad that you didn't let me out. He's going to be mad, really, really mad.
Dr. Sinclair: Do you regret what you did to Ryan?
Annie: I didn't mean to hurt Daddy, but he got in the way.
Dr. Sinclair: In the way of what?
Annie: The mean lady. It's not safe with her there.
Dr. Sinclair: With who there?
Annie: The Greenlee lady. She needs to be dead. Let me out. You have to let me out.
Dr. Sinclair: Annie, we're going to move you to a new room today.
Annie: No, that -- I don't need another room. Don't you understand? It's dangerous. I have to kill the mean lady. Why aren't you listening to me? You don't understand. What? No, I don't need another shot! Please, just get me -- no, get -- please, stop it. Please, I don't need another shot.
Dr. Sinclair: What is Mr. Stone doing out of isolation?
Nurse: After evaluation, his psychiatrist felt he was ready to be released.
Dr. Sinclair: How are you doing today, Mr. Stone?
Aidan: Mr. Stone is doing much, much better.
Dr. Sinclair: And what is Mr. Stone doing out here?
Aidan: Mr. Stone is counting air molecules, because if someone doesn't do it -- well, then we'll never know just exactly how many there are. 995, 996 --
[Aidan lets himself into Annie's room]
Aidan: Annie, can you hear me? 997 -- 998. There, found you.
Greenlee: My dream felt so real, like I was being mourned, and I have a chance to stop something bad before it happens.
Ryan: It's not real, Greenlee. You can't think like that, ok?
Greenlee: I can't help it. It wasn't a dream when Annie killed her brother. When she kidnapped her child and shot her friend, when she stabbed Erica and broke out of a mental institution to come after me -- I'm seeing a pattern here. She's not going to stop until she gets her way.
Ryan: I'm not going to let Annie do this to us. I'm not, I'm not. We are going to build a life together, you, me, Emma, and Spike, a life that Annie cannot touch, ok? I will always, always protect you. And I will do whatever I have to do until you believe me.
Bianca: I'm really sorry if I seemed rude. I just -- I wasn't expecting to see anybody.
Simon: Nice place.
Bianca: Thanks, it's my sister's. Just make yourself comfortable. Can I get you a brandy? That will help start the thawing process.
Simon: I can see why Reese likes you.
Bianca: So you're an architect. How long have you been doing that?
Simon: Seems like forever, but I love it. You know, I get to travel, see the world's finest structural designs. Reese's father told me that you two have a baby girl.
Bianca: Two, actually. My daughter Miranda -- she's grown to love Reese as a mom, and that's Gabrielle, our little angel. She's 11 weeks.
Simon: Two little girls. Reese told her family that we weren't having children. But I always knew she wanted them. You know, I could see myself teaching my son how to play soccer, leaving work early to make sure I get to all his games, maybe even keeping score, pass out half-time snacks -- orange slices and fruit drinks. Hey, I guess it wasn't meant to be.
Bianca: I'm sorry. I really don't know what to say.
Zach: I know what's going on here. We're friends. We're close friends. It happened very quickly, and sometimes when that happens, it gets -- gets a little weird. But it -- you, me, Bianca, we have a kid together. It doesn't get any closer than that.
Reese: Hey, right, of course.
Reese: Of course.
Zach: Plus, it's New Year's. You're supposed to kiss people.
Reese: Yes, right.
Zach: It's mandatory, whether it's friends or family, strangers.
Zach: Kiss them, yeah.
Reese: Strangers -- oh, you had a few of those in your day, huh?
Zach: I told you. It's mandatory.
Reese: Oh, well, a stranger tries to kiss me, I run.
Zach: Well, what I'm trying to tell you is you don't have to run. It's ok for us to be close.
Reese: You know, I've actually never had a close friendship with a man before, except my father, and that was, um -- oh. You know what? You know what? I'm going to figure this out. I'll learn the basics, and then I won't freak out anymore.
Zach: All right. Basics is good. We'll do that, and then we'll go from there.
Reese: Very good.
Zach: Happy New Year.
Reese: Well, happy new year to you, too.
Angel: You're new!
Administrator: You cannot provoke Dr. Sinclair. You need to keep a low profile. I got you in here. Now you have to act accordingly.
Aidan: Now, I know how to handle myself.
Administrator: You already risked your cover by asking about security information, and I hear you planted a kiss on the doctor. Is that how you plan to handle things?
Aidan: It was in the moment. The doctor was so suspicious, I had to be convincing.
Administrator: You're a loose cannon. What's next? You going to ask her out?
Aidan: Why, does the good doctor love me?
Administrator: We shouldn't even be talking out here.
Aidan: Listen, wait. When I was admitted, you told me there was no security cameras in this wing.
Administrator: Yeah, that's right.
Aidan: Well, there is one, in Annie's room.
[Administrator mouths words]
Zach: All right. To friendship.
Reese: To friendship.
Reese: You know, Simon and I -- we even skipped that friendship stage.
Zach: Where did you meet him?
Reese: At work. He was the rising star in my dad's firm. God, when we started dating, everyone was talking about the house that we would design.
Reese: Everyone thought we were perfect together. So I just figured I was missing something. But, you know, it was really strange because, to me, I always felt like it was just a facade that I was putting on, you know? On the outside, we were the perfect couple.
Zach: What about the inside?
Reese: The inside, I didn't really want Simon to know who I was, because I was afraid that he'd realize I was pretending to be something that I just wasn't. Look, I couldn't wrap my head around the concept of being gay. How was I supposed to explain it to him?
Zach: It wasn't the right time for you.
Reese: No. But I hate that he got caught up in it, you know? God, my head was a mess then.
Zach: Yeah, I've been there.
Reese: You were a closet lesbian, too?
Zach: Yeah, a couple of years in college. I've got a lot of explaining to do.
Reese: Yes, wow. You know, I can buy you as a lesbian, but I just -- I can't see you as a mess. You seem so grounded.
Zach: Well, that's Kendall and the boys. There was a time in my life I didn't know who the hell I was.
Reese: Yeah, well, at least you didn't get engaged and have to break someone's heart.
Zach: But I did some pretty extreme things.
Reese: Really? Like what?
Zach: My dad is a pretty twisted individual, and he -- he wanted me to follow in his footsteps when I -- like I just said, I didn't really know who I was, and it took a while to -- to find an identity that I could live with. That's all.
Reese: All right. So we were both on different tracks, and we had to take serious action to get ourselves on the track that we were meant to be on. Ok, well, that's it, Zach. That's why we relate to one another.
Zach: Serious action. Cheers.
Simon: We met at her dad's architecture firm. I can remember the first day she walked in. She had the most beautiful face I had ever seen. I knew she was the one for me.
Bianca: Did you approach her right away?
Simon: Didn't have to. Fate stepped in. She ended up at the desk next to mine. It was sort of against company policy -- co-workers associating outside of business hours. But we couldn't stay away from each other. From our first date, we were inseparable. Reese spent every night at my place until --
Bianca: Until what?
Simon: She left, for good, two weeks before the wedding.
Bianca: Did you know that something was wrong? I mean, there must have been some sign that things weren't working.
Simon: Nothing. And we were so close, you know. She was my best friend and my lover. One minute we were talking about spending the rest of our life together. The next, it was over without any explanation.
Bianca: That must have been really hard for you.
Simon: Not as hard as having to find out from her parents that the wedding was off. A few months later, Mrs. Williams called to tell me that Reese was with another woman. It was bad enough that I lost her without warning. And to hear that she's in love with another woman?
Bianca: It broke your heart.
Simon: No, Reese didn't wake up one morning and decide that things weren't working. She knew she didn't love me, and she kept it inside. She was so good at hiding how she felt. I really believed I was the love of her life.
Bianca: Excuse me. Hello.
Reese: Hey. I was hoping I'd get to kiss you at midnight. What happened? You know, if you hurry up, I can re-enact what I had in mind.
Bianca: Uh, um, I'm kind of busy right now.
Reese: Is it Gabby? Is she ok?
Bianca: No, Gabrielle's fine. It's your ex-fiancÚ. He's here with me.
[Aidan sneaks into a storage closet and finds Dr. Sinclair's surveillance of Annie's room]
[Dr. Sinclair sighs]
Ryan: Dr. Sinclair, I -- I need to talk to you for a second.
Dr. Sinclair: Oh, Mr. Lavery, if you're here to see Annie, I'm sorry --
Ryan: No, I'm not here to see Annie. I'm here to make sure that she doesn't escape again.
Dr. Sinclair: Ok, your wife is secure. The in-house authorities have signed off on her transfer. She's being moved to maximum security tonight.
Ryan: Oh. Ok, good. I mean, how -- how coherent is she? Will she know what's going on?
Dr. Sinclair: Mr. Lavery, I know this is difficult, but you need to try and let go. I assure you, Annie needs to be here, and she's going to get the best treatment possible.
Ryan: I know. Thank you.
Dr. Sinclair: Mr. Lavery, if you'd like, you can see Annie one last time before we move her on. She's heavily sedated. She won't even know you're there.
Annie: The mean lady needs to die. The mean lady needs to die. The mean lady needs to die.
Greenlee: I'm sorry to stop by so late. I just wanted to see if Emma was ok.
Opal: Oh, she is snug as a bug in a rug. Passed out hours ago, poor little thing. What, with her momma flying the looney coup, I was scared about how that was going to affect her.
Greenlee: Well, thank God you called 911. Annie was out for my blood.
Opal: Hmm. I'd offer you a reading, but I've been trying to kind of lay off the clairvoyant activities ever since I was right about the tornado disaster.
Greenlee: Well, it would probably be bad news anyway. Ryan proposed to me, and I couldn't accept.
Opal: Whoa, back up here, sister.
Greenlee: Well, I wanted to say yes, but I've had a couple of really bad dreams.
Opal: Well, start talking.
Greenlee: I was in my wedding dress in a bathtub, and I was dead.
Opal: Oh, Lordy, I'm sorry.
Greenlee: I can't help thinking about what that means. I love Ryan, and we finally have the chance to be together, but I'm scared.
Opal: Well, maybe I could make an exception just for tonight. I know you're skeptical, but the cards can really off you some guidance, honey.
Greenlee: I really don't believe in that.
Opal: Well, suit yourself.
Greenlee: Fine, what have I got to lose?
Zach: Try to relax.
Reese: I can't. I can't. I don't -- I don't understand. I don't understand -- what the hell is he doing here? What does he want? I mean, how does he even know where I -- my mother. My mother told him. Damn her.
Bianca: Happy New Year, guys.
Reese: Hey. I'm so glad you're here.
Bianca: Zach, this is Simon Marshal.
Zach: Nice to meet you.
Bianca: Uh, I'm thirsty. I'm -- could you get me a glass of -- I don't know, milk or something?
Zach: Milk, coming up. Come on.
Reese: My mother sent you. Is that it? She wanted you to try and save me? Why don't you just tell her that it's --
Simon: No, I came on my own. I wanted to see you, make sure you were happy.
Reese: I am happy. So, um, you can go.
Simon: Bianca's sweet, caring -- I really like her.
Reese: I really love her.
Simon: You said the same thing to me.
Zach: So I have a question for you. Why'd you bring him here?
Bianca: I had to see them together. I had to make sure that Reese isn't going to do the same thing to me that she did to Simon.
Opal: That is the world. That means that you have faced every obstacle in your relationship, every path has been traveled, and now all that remains is union with the divine in whatever form that appears to you.
Greenlee: I don't understand.
Opal: Well, that means that this journey is over and a new one is beginning for you and Ryan. Take another card.
Opal: Well, will you look at that?
Greenlee: What is it? What is it? Tell me.
Opal: This is the empress. Through her, we see the power of love. She represents beauty and pleasure and happiness super-sized. Your bond with Ryan is -- it's very strong. It's road-block free.
Greenlee: So there's nothing threatening my future with Ryan?
Greenlee: No drowning-bride card here?
Opal: No, nothing that I can see, honey, no. I'm just so relieved it's a happy reading for once.
Greenlee: So you are absolutely positive?
Opal: The cards don't lie. Your destiny is with Ryan.
Annie: Where are we going? Don't let the mean lady hurt me.
Dr. Sinclair: It's going to be all right. You're going some place where nobody can hurt you. Mr. Stone, I'm sorry, but you're not going to be able to visit your friend anymore.
Aidan: I did it. 1,451 -- counted them all.
Ryan: I'm so glad you're here. I went to Oak Haven, and I made sure that Annie is not ever going to escape again. She's not going to be a problem.
Greenlee: It doesn't matter. I'm not afraid anymore.
[Ryan and Greenlee kiss]
Reese: I wanted to love you. I tried my best.
Simon: Your best? That's not what love is. You shouldn't have to try.
Reese: I know. And that's why I left.
Simon: No, you just disappeared. No explanation, nothing. It was like you knocked the wind and everything else right out of me.
Reese: Simon, I -- I -- I couldn't make sense of how I was feeling. I mean, how was I supposed to explain it to you?
Simon: Where you confused the entire time? You know, if you were, you did a good job of hiding it.
Reese: Look, it happened after we got engaged, and at first I thought it was just my nerves. But then as the wedding got closer and closer, I just -- I realized something -- something was wrong. Something was off, and I didn't -- I don't know. I just felt like I was making a big mistake, and I didn't know how to face you or my parents, and so -- I ran. I ran, and I wanted to clear my head, and while I was trying to figure it out, I met Bianca. And for the first time in my life, I really fell in love. Simon, with you, I was trying to be something that I just wasn't.
Zach: Hey, drink your milk. She loves you. I wouldn't have helped you conceive a child if I didn't think that. And what happened with Simon -- that's not going to happen with you.
Bianca: Well, that's what Simon thought before Reese disappeared. He told me that he had no idea that she had doubts about their relationship and then one day she was just gone.
Zach: Well, she wasn't herself then. You know the real Reese. It's not the same.
Bianca: Are you sure? I mean, she has kept things from me -- her problems with her parents, her ex-fiancÚ, Kendall's condition.
Zach: That's not fair. I asked her to keep that secret. That was me.
Bianca: I can't keep wondering how many secrets she has. It's like there is all of this stuff inside her that she won't let me be a part of.
Zach: Well, sometimes people do that for good reason. If you think that complete honesty is part of love and commitment, you're in for a big surprise. If the person you care about knew every little secret about you, every little fantasy, every little mistake, every little lie, they'd never look at you the same way again. She loves you. That should be enough.
Simon: Come on, how can you say it was all a mistake? Do you remember the time we didn't get out of bed for two days? We planned how we'd call in sick so it wasn't too obvious we were together. And, oh, we couldn't get enough of each other. When I told Bianca about the first time I saw you, all those memories came --
Reese: Wait a minute. What did you tell Bianca?
Simon: Bianca asked me questions. She wanted to hear about us.
Reese: Well, you shouldn't have told her anything. Simon, you should not have come here. Look, I am sorry. I am so sorry that I hurt you. But we are in the past, ok, and Bianca is my future, and I don't want you or anybody else interfering with it.
Simon: That's not why I came here. I wanted to make sure you were happy.
Reese: No, you didn't. No, you didn't. Simon, you came here because you were hoping that I wasn't happy, just like you.
Simon: Yeah, and how can I be? Come on. I spent the last year and a half trying to come to terms with how everything ended between us.
Reese: I'm sorry that I couldn't help you.
Simon: No, you did. I guess maybe I just needed to hear it from you. Maybe now I can finally move on. But for Bianca's sake, I hope you're sure about who you really are.
Zach: Well, I'm going to relieve Rachael of her babysitting duties. You guys take your time. Happy New Year.
Bianca: Happy New Year, Zach.
Greenlee: Opal told me what you've been saying all along. That I have nothing to worry about. We're meant to be together, Ryan. That's why we keep coming back to each other after everything that's happened.
Ryan: Will you excuse me for a second? Because I have to go and thank Opal right now.
Ryan: We can handle anything, Greenlee, anything, as long as we stay together.
Greenlee: I know that now. Ask me again.
Ryan: Well, the cards have spoken. Now it's your turn. It's time to prove it to the stars and the moon and everything else that we belong together, Greenlee. Make me the happiest man in the world. Will you marry me? Don't leave me hanging here. Say something. Is that a yes or a no?
Greenlee: I would love nothing more than to be your wife. Yes, I'll marry you, Ryan Lavery.
Opal: Oh, my God. Oh, Greenlee.
Reese: I'm sorry Simon came here tonight. He shouldn't have.
Bianca: No, it's -- it's ok.
Reese: No, it's not. I know what he told you about us.
Bianca: That you two were madly in love.
Reese: He was. I was not, and it made no sense to him when I left, but to me, it meant absolute--
Bianca: Reese, I -- I need you to confide in me, whatever it is, past or present, I -- I need to be a part of your life.
Reese: Ok. You want to know what the big secret is? I am afraid that you don't believe that you are it for me. I am afraid that you don't believe that everything that I do is for us, and our future together, and our family. And I am afraid that you're going to leave me. So there it is. There is my big secret. And if you don't believe me, if you don't believe that everything I do for you is because I love you, then you're right, we can't be together.
Zach: Hi, I got you, baby. Thanks for being here. I really appreciate it.
Rachael: No problem.
Zach: Hi, my little monkey, hi. Oh, my goodness. Happy New Year to you.
Rachael: Thank you.
Zach: Safe drive home. What are you doing? Hello. Hmm? Hello, my little girl. What's going on? What are you looking at? Hmm? What are you looking at?
Bianca: I do believe you. I -- I trust you with all my heart. And you don't have to worry, because we will be together, because we have to be. I love you. I -- I couldn't live without you. I -- I -- you have to know that no one -- no one could ever replace you. You're it for me. I'm -- I'm --
[Bianca and Reese kiss]
Zach: Hey, my little angel, don't worry. I'm not going anywhere.
Zach: Really? You did? What else did you do today?
