Julia declines his help, saying she likes her heroes alive. Tad tells Sam Julia has to lay low so he has to go to Brooke’s. He objects and wants to stay and help.

At Chandler mansion, Di reads the card sent to her in the box of flowers. The writer compliments her on the aqua satin dress she wore yesterday. Del approaches her and says he released the scaly friend that was in the box with the roses into the wild. He asked her who would send her roses with a lizard. Di says it is a private joke. Del says he thinks she’s in some kind of trouble. That trouble paid him a visit. He says two guys paid him a visit in New York about the time she was released from prison. They wanted to know if he had contact with her. When he said no they wanted him to give her a message if he ran into her. They wanted her to know Kevin Sturgis wants to get in touch with her. Di says Kevin is an old boyfriend who wants to get back together with her. She says she rejected him. He asks if the lizard and roses are his way of saying thanks for the memories. She says the lizard wasn’t from Kevin, it was from a cellmate. They called their cell a reptile house. Del says he doesn't buy it. He says the way he writes it in his book will be way sexier.

Ryan talks about himself and the bad things he has done and the people he has hurt. He says people who loved him tried to help him but he was beyond help. He says he was hurting those he loved so he killed himself. He says he thought he could save the whole world but he couldn't. He says he needs to be saved as much as Jonathan. Jonathan realizes he's not the only bad one. Ryan tells him he's not bad. He's been hurt. Jonathan says he let Ryan down and his father down. Ryan says no, he let him down. Ryan tells Jonathan he needs him to help him. Jonathan slowly disconnects the bomb and Ryan grabs his tearful brother. Erin watches as tears roll down her face.

Zach asks Kendall why he would help Ryan pretend to be dead. Would he want to watch people suffer? He accuses Kendall of wanting to remind the world how bad he is. Is this payback? He says she's not going to hurt him because, as she knows, he has no feelings. The one she'll hurt is the one who is grieving for Ryan more than her. Kendall says she would never hurt Greenlee, she would die first. Zach asks her how is Greenlee going to live with thinking that Ryan faked his death and walked out on her. An angry Kendall tells him to shut up and walks out. "Damn you, Ryan," Zach says to himself.

Then, talking to herself, she says if Ryan is still alive it's going to kill her. She tells Babe that if you love someone you don't give up. You don't let someone believe ... She runs off before finishing the sentence.
