Greenlee is obviously having a dream that she awakens in the hospital and a nurse introduces her to her son. While she sleeps in her hospital room, Dr. Madden checks her vitals. Outside the hospital room, Dr. Madden informs Kendall, Jack and Erica that Greenlee will be just fine.
Zach takes Julia to see Edmund’s memorial plot in the mausoleum. She tells him that she believes he is somehow responsible for her brother-in-law’s death as well as her husband’s death.
At the police station, Tad arrives.
Greenlee awakens in the hospital room.
Zach tells Julia he’s sorry that she lost her husband. She tells him if it’s something that you “lose” you can find it again. But, thanks to Zach and his friends, she will never see her husband again. She tells him how her life has been worthless while in the witness protection program. She says that nobody can live with that much protection, especially not a man like her husband. He was so much more than the restricted life he was forced to live. You cannot put a lion in a cage. And, the program took everything away from him. She says that the program makes you forget everything that makes you, yourself. Zach tells her that, sometimes, people can have new lives. She tells him she doesn’t want to hear his excuses. He tells Julia that he’s trying to help her. She tells him that it sucks the life out of one’s soul. She looks at Edmund’s memorial plaque, and she tells him there is no safe place and she is not leaving this mausoleum with him.
JR makes comments about how it’s a good
thing that Jamie will never be able to practice medicine, because one slip of a
scalpel and somebody could die if he wanted to end that person’s life. Derek
then comes out and reads the report. There is no evidence that the brakes have
been tampered with. JR protests that this report is inconclusive. Tad and
Erica asks Dr. Madden if there is something she and Jack can do for Greenlee. He tells her yes; stay close, and he will come back to check on Greenlee later. Jack tells Erica that his heart just aches for his daughter. It wasn’t enough that she lost Ryan; now she loses their baby. Erica knows that there is more Jack needs to tell her. He admits that he is greatly relieved; Greenlee is now rid of Ryan. Nothing more will remind her of him. And, he says, he wants to be there in order to help his daughter every step of the way.
Julia tells Zach that she refuses to go back into hiding. She will not have any more false names or identities. She takes out her gun and tells him she will use this, and a knife, and her hands, and anything else she can grab in order to protect herself. She tells him that her life is not worth anything without her freedom. She then hands him her gun, and tells him to get it over with and kill her now.
Jamie is getting really angry about how JR
has gone too far. Babe tells him that JR did not win this time, and Jamie
cannot get upset over what is happening. He tells her that Tad and
Greenlee tells Kendall that she cannot see
the smug, proud look on
Zach tells Julia that they have established that nobody is going to kill anybody. She can rest assured of that. She him asks who he is. He tells her that he is the man who loved her sister Maria more than anything, and he admits that he messed up a lot of things.
Tad does the role-play where he talks like
JR. He says Babe is a piece of trash that ruined his life, ran off with his
brother and he will never forgive her.
Meanwhile, Jamie tells Krystal that he cannot go away and have to worry about what kind of crap JR will pull. Babe assures him that she has people who care about her, like her mother. She won’t let JR get to her. But, he tells her, JR can get her fired from her job. He can pull strings to prevent Babe from being with her son. God knows what else he can do. So, it’s not open for debate. Babe fires back, telling him what is not open for debate with her. She tells him that she refuses to marry him unless he finishes school. He tells her that he knows she will never dump him, and he refuses to dump her. She must get used to it.
Erica goes to see Greenlee, telling her
how much of a loss she knows she’s suffered; first Ryan, and now the baby. And,
she tells Greenlee, whatever she needs, Erica is there for her. Greenlee seems
to know that Erica is sincere. Dr. Madden comes into her room. Greenlee asks
Erica to talk to him alone.
Dr. Madden tells Greenlee that he would never minimize or justify her loss. Regardless of how she got pregnant, he takes any loss of life very personally. She looks at him without speaking and does not look happy.
Zach tells Julia that Sam and Maddie hold him responsible for Edmund’s death, and not without cause. Maybe if he had not come along, Edmund might still be alive. But one thing he can change. If he ever sees Maria again, he will not be able to tell her that her sister asked for his help and he turned his back on her. He assures Julia that he will not ever again hurt her family.
Jamie tells Babe that she must face the fact that she is stuck with him. He will not let her make any noble sacrifices for him. She tells him that they are not “stuck”. They are not a done deal. And, he had better listen to her because she is as serious as a heart attack. He tells her that he is listening. She tells him she can refuse to marry him; he cannot force her to do it. Unless he finishes college, she refuses to be Mrs. James Martin, and that’s all there is.
After realizing that Zach might really be
sincere about wanting to help her, Julia puts her arms around him.
Greenlee asks Dr. Madden if he really mourns her loss. He assures her that he is sincere. She tells him then in that case, he must tell her that there is another vial of Ryan’s samples, and she can try again.
