She says she knows that Lena came to Pine Valley around the same time as Michael, and that the meeting in Aspen was a total set-up.

Erica goes to the community center to look for Jackson. She asks Reggie where he is. Reggie tells her that he left the other night without saying good-bye and still isnt back.

Reggie continues playing with Ericas mind, but after realizing Erica is really distressed, he tells her that he doesnt know where Jackson is. Erica rushes out. Joni comes in from the back office and tells Reggie that hes got guts. She tells him that he just told off one of the richest women in Pine Valley! Reggie doesnt seem interested and says shes just not his type. Joni makes a face and goes back to work. Luis rushes in all of a sudden. He grabs Reggie and asks what he told Jackson.

Joni is watching all this from the back office.

Anna and David wait patiently outside Leoras room. Joe comes out and says Leora is fine. Anna asks him whether Leoras pacemaker had anything to do with the fever. David insists that theyve talked about this. Anna wants Joes opinion. Joe tells her that Leora has a weak immune system, and thats why she had the fever. Anna asks if they should reconsider the pacemaker. David blows up. He says that they have already made their decision, and even Joe had backed them on it. He says he doesnt want to talk about this and goes towards Leoras room. He calls out for Anna to join him, but she tells him she wants to talk to Joe alone. David angrily goes into the room. Outside Anna asks Joe to be honest with her. Reluctantly, Joe says that they should probably consider a pacemaker. He says that Leora is not gaining strength as they hoped she would. He says waiting could be dangerous.
Michael asks Kendall if shes hoping to get a full confession out of him. Kendall tells him that now that she knows his agenda, she wants to be a part of it. She says she would rather be on his side than go running to Erica. She says she knows Erica will not believe her and will probably turn everything on her. Michael seems skeptical. He asks what she gets out of it. Kendall says she wants Ericas throne once Boyds formula has been stolen and Enchantment has been taken over.

David tells Anna that he doesnt care what Joe may have told her. Anna says she wants what is best for Leora. She tells him that she signed the consent papers for Leoras surgery. David is shocked. He asks Anna how she could have gone behind his back and sign the consent papers. He says shes overreacting and should just trust his instinct. Anna insists that shes trying to do whats best for their daughter. She says Joe agrees. David tells her that Joe is not a heart specialist. He tells her that hes scared too, but he cant allow Leoras life to be in danger. He warns Anna that he will fight her if she decides to pursue this.
After Luis leaves, Joni approaches Reggie. She asks him why he still hangs out with such a creep. She tells him to call the police since Luis just threatened both his and Jacksons life.

He pulls her close and says that she was wrong about his feelings for her. He kisses her.

Erica thanks him for coming through for her. Chris hugs her and tells her everything will be all right.
