Amanda is sitting alone in Myrtle’s boarding house with a bowl of soup. JR shows up, and startles her. He tells her she should not assume the soup is not laced with poisoning. She asks him if he is finishing what Babe failed to do the night they mowed her down in the car. He tells her he knows that she tried to poison his family. Babe also shows up and tells Amanda that she is there to finish what they started.
Ryan is on the beach and hears a woman scream. Immediately he takes off his shoes and shirt and is ready to jump in the lake.
Jack is with Erica when he gets a call
from Greenlee. He hears her tell him
that she’s leaving town. He urges his
daughter not to leave. Erica tells him
she’s so sorry. He tells her he’s afraid
he’s lost his daughter. Erica assures
him he has not lost her and she just needs some time. She will return to
Ryan finds a woman screaming, jumps in the ocean to save her, and discovers that it’s Julia Santos. She tells him that he needs to leave her alone. He asks her why she screamed. She tells him it’s because she lost her necklace. She screamed in frustration then dived in after it. They are both freezing cold. She gives him a towel and gets her clothes back on. She asks him what has happened with him and knows that he has some issues in his own life.
Erica tells Jack that it’s just like Greenlee blaming everybody else for her problems. She also reminds him that he was thrilled to find out that Ryan had a vasectomy and wasn’t very upset to find out that Greenlee could not have Ryan’s baby. He got what he wanted; Ryan is out of Greenlee’s life.
Ryan tells Julia that Greenlee skipped town and is not coming back. She tells him that no matter how bad things are, you can always have a new life. He tells her that he’s been thinking about the time when he tried to end his life by riding his motorcycle off a cliff but did not die. He must have been saved for a reason. Maybe it was for Greenlee or for Jonathan. He thought that if he really believed that he was saved for some reason, he could take back his life.
Babe tells Amanda that she almost fed her son the food that Amanda put poison in, and she’s not going to overlook any danger that could have come to her baby. Amanda argues, but JR seems to join Babe in what she is there to tell Amanda. Right then, Derek enters and JR tells him he wants Amanda arrested for food poisoning. Derek tells JR that nobody saw Amanda poisoning the food in their house. Babe protests that her son could have been poisoned. Derek tells them that he had the crime lab examine the food and found that there was no intentional foul play. He leaves. Amanda tells them they better get out of there or she will have them both arrested. JR shakes his finger at her and tells her he wishes that car had killed her.
Julia asks Ryan what will happen with his baby given the present circumstances.
Amanda goes to Jamie’s to tell him he must help her because Babe and JR are after her. She tells him that they are falsely accusing her of poisoning them. He tells her he wouldn’t put it past her to do just that. She tells him he must believe her.
JR takes Babe to his home and asks her if she is ok since she’s gotten out of the hospital. She tells him that she’s glad she’s out so she can see with her own eyes that their son is ok and that she was able to confront Amanda. Right then, she almost falls over, but JR catches her and tells her she’s not driving back to the Pine Cone by herself tonight. He gets her to sit. She notices that her hands aren’t working and she needs to take off her dress because it’s too tight. He takes it off and sees her in her sexy underwear. He behaves like a “gentleman” and puts her in the bed where she used to sleep when they were married and lets her rest.
Ryan tells Julia that he’s been questioning whether or not he is fit to be a father. She tells him that she believes he’d be an ok dad as long as he does not pour beer over his cereal in front of his child. He tells her that because of his behaviors, Greenlee is gone. Julia tells Ryan that Greenlee is alive and she encourages him to go and fight to get her back. He tells her he cannot do that, because he promised to respect any choice that Greenlee made, and he’s afraid that he cannot change her mind ever again.
Erica tells Jack that maybe they should
not discuss this right now. They just
agreed to stay out of their children’s lives.
He asks her what he’s supposed to do when his daughter has split town
and is all alone and crying her eyes out because Erica’s daughter has betrayed
her. She tells him that their other
daughter, Kendall is alone and pregnant.
He tells her that she cannot see that what
Jack asks Erica what they should do with
Kendall and the baby after what she’s done.
Should they just pat her on the head and send her off with the baby
carriage. She tells him that they cannot
spit in her face. He tells her he’s had
it with both Kendall and Ryan Lavery. Erica
tells Jack that she has learned from what happened with Bianca, and this is
different. There was no violence
involved in this conception. There was
no rape. This conception was an act of
love. He tells her that Greenlee stole
Julia tells Ryan that the necklace that she lost was one that Noah gave her. She remembers when he gave it to her. She’s kept it all this time and could not wear it when she was in the program, and to lose it now is a big slap in the face. He tells her he’s sorry. She tells him that maybe this is a sign to go forward and not live in the past.
Jamie and Amanda are interrupted by a woman who walks out of his bedroom and asks if he is coming back. He tells her he is very sorry not to be able to see her today. He then acts like he cares about Amanda. He tells her that she needs help, and he will take her to the hospital and have his grandfather refer her to “somebody.” She tells him she does not need a shrink. She is not crazy. She is not her mother. He tells her she cannot go around endangering people. He will not let her hurt his brother or his family. She goes out the door and tells him she does not need his “help.”
While Babe is tucked in bed, JR asks her if she hates him for forcing her hand to break up with Jamie. She tells him she does not hate him. She made a decision and she is sticking with it. He tells her he meant what he said. He will not let anybody hurt her ever.
After the shocking revelation with Zach,
Julia thanks Ryan for saving her although she did not need saving. He tells her any time. Right then, he looks down and finds her necklace. She tells him he’s an angel and she hugs him. She asks if he can put it on for her. He puts it on her. She asks him if he needs a ride. He tells her he’s fine. He has his bike. He tells her he just wants to stay there and watch the sun rise.
Jack tells Erica that this has been a very trying day. And maybe they should just go to bed. She tells him that she thinks it would be better if he just goes home to Reggie and Lily. He leaves. She then looks at their wedding picture.
Julia gets up to leave. Ryan looks to be meditating.
JR notices Babe sleeping and seems to love her again.
