They are very close now and it would not have happened if she had not allowed herself to forgive Erica. He tells her he can never forgive his mother after what she did.

She replies she does. Greenlee told her and she appeared very upset. Jack tells Erica that Ryan did one thing right in going through with the vasectomy. She tells him that he should not tell that to Greenlee because she does not approve of what her husband did and will be very upset to hear her father tell her it was ok. They both realize that they are interfering in Greenlees life. Erica meets with Ms. Bratton and introduces her to Jack. She tells him that Ms. Bratton is there to interrogate her. Jack asks Erica what she has done.
Jamie tries to reach JR, telling him he knows how upset he must be and how hard this is. JR yells at Jamie and asks him if hes asked for his opinion.

He tells JR that he knows her lying about her death and coming back this way will hurt many people. And he asks JR how he can help.
Tad asks Dixie what she expects him to do. Should he just put the memories back in the box and forget what has happened? She asks him not to be angry and tells him that she wants to handle this herself. He tells her shes really done a bang up job with that, so far. He tells her that her death ruined JR. And it devastated him to go to sleep every night believing his wife was dead. And now he cannot believe that she would do something like that to them. He asks her how she can even remotely suggest he forgives her. She tells him she almost died. The baby died. Her body was ripped to shreds. She was emotionally torn apart. There was doctor after doctor and surgery after surgery. It was more than she could take. And she needed to find out how to take control of her life. And shes still finding that out. She tells him that she knew shed have to leave this country because she knew hed want to terminate the pregnancy. He tells her that he lost everything when he thought he lost both her and Kate. He asks her what she thought hed do. Did she think hed just wait a few hours for her and then carry all her stuff out to the curb? She replies she knows it wasnt that simple or easy for him. He tells her that although she did not die in the car crash, a big piece of him sure did. He pulls out the last letter she sent him and asks if she remembers it. She writes that she is so sorry for running away to Europe and did not know what to do. She revealed to him, for the first time, in the letter, that she was pregnant with his child. She told him, in the letter, that when she first found out she was pregnant, she was afraid to tell him because she thought he would not want her to have the baby with her heart condition. She informed him that they have a baby girl and asked him to forgive her. After he reads the letter, he tells her he remembers all about the shock of knowing shed left him. He tells her that he and Brooke went on a flight to look for her. He tells her that when he thought shed died, he considered giving up but knew he could not. He had to go on. He had JR to deal with. He had to tell her son what happened. And he tells her hes now here to tell her that it messed JR up pretty bad. She tells Tad that she can see that he managed somehow. He tells her that he eventually learned to fool other people and fool himself into believing he was healing from the loss. She tells him that she is so sorry and did not mean to hurt him. He tells her that until he heard that she might have survived the crash, he did not even allow himself to have any hope. Then, when he considered the possibility that she was alive, he did not understand how she could survive the crash and not come back to him. She tells him the day he was coming to see her, she was a complete wreck. She had so many doubts. The reason she went driving that night was to clear her head. When she recovered from the accident, she didnt believe she had reason to come back or if she would even want to.
Erica tells Jack that she was just kidding about Ms. Bratton interrogating her. Shes just doing an interview about their very beautiful wedding in Florida. Ms. Bratton asks them if they could name one thing as a defining minute, what would it be. They agree that it was when they were officially joined in marriage with their kids.
