In Dr. Joe Martins office, Tad announces to everybody that he has some information, which could invalidate the so-called proof that JR is the father of Babes child. But right when hes ready to inform everybody, Krystal says she insists that she makes the announcement first. She approaches Tad, trying to charm him so he will not drop the bomb-shell which could hurt her and her daughter. Tad announces that something has happened. But right before he spits it out, Krystal tells them that she and Tad are getting married. He announces to everybody that Krystal is lying. But she insists he goes outside with her to discuss something privately. He tells her that he intends to go back into the room and let everybody know that Babe and JR are not legally married, whether she likes it or not. Krystal protests that if he does that, the only person who will win is Adam Chandler, something Tad does not want any more than she does. Adam goes to the door and eavesdrops upon their conversation. Right when hes ready to open the door, JR grabs him. Adam tells his son that he just planned to go and get some coffee. Jamie tells Adam he knows that his intent was to eavesdrop upon his dad and Krystal. Adam sits in Joes chair and tells them all that he is going to send Babe somewhere far away where she will stay away from his son. JR demands that his father takes that back. At that moment, Babe has a contraction and needs to lie down. Right when everybody is ready to leave Joes office, Tad and Krystal suddenly end their argument and Krystal attempts to appear to everybody as though there is nothing really intense going on. But Tad tells Krystal he is not through with this.When everybodys gone, she pulls him into the office and tells him that she doesnt believe his claim that he cares about JR and Jamie. He tells her that hes tired of the lies. She tells him that she at least raised her daughter to be a good loving person. He tells her he knows that Babe is still legally married to Paul Kramer and he believes his son has the right to know that.. But she protests that it does not matter what is on a piece of paper. JR and Babe love each other. They believe they are married. And thats all that should matter. She also protests that her daughter intended to sign the annulment papers with Paul Kramer, but unintentionally put it off. She tells Tad that the two of them need to get along, stop being at odds about this, and maybe have a good time together. She tells him that maybe they can work together to plan a party for Babe and JR. She also reminds him that his son, Jamie, is being very foolish in not being able to let go and realize that Babe loves JR. And she mentions that Adam Chandler has a problem with it, but they should not. She urges him to have a heart for her daughter and his stepson.
When Adam returns home with his son and daughter in law, Mary is waiting for them. He speaks silently to her, revealing that that two of them have a secret which they do not intend for JR or Babe to know about. Adam plays nice to them and says he welcomes Babe into his family.

Maggie is stunned and says she never heard that Bianca planned to be moving. Lena tells them both that their apartment is nice but its too small.. She knows of a house in a residential, family neighborhood and sounds as though its not anywhere nearby.

Kendall tells her mother that she does not believe that its right for her to take over Enchantment. She tells her that she can sign back Ericas shares to her. Erica goes to her desk and relives a memory where she hears Bianca telling somebody that because that psycho rapist got her pregnant, it can never be over. She slams a picture frame against her desk.

She also tells Erica that she knows the reason for her volatile behavior, and what caused her to smash the vase, was because of Bianca. Erica acts as if she did not know what shes talking about. While on the floor, picking up the pieces of the vase, Erica tells Kendall that she is not weak or emotionally fragile. She just wants to start something new, find a new project. Kendall asks her just what her specific plans are. Erica says she hasnt really come up with any specific plans yet. Kendall tells her mother that she knows that it would not matter what it is. Its just an excuse to take her mind off of Bianca.

But everybody knows what she really meant.
Jamie takes Maggie to his fathers house and asks her if she wants to compare horror stores. She asks him what has gone on in his life today. He tells her his day cannot be any happier than hers.
