JR says the woman formerly known as his mother is a liar. JR goes to the patio. Tad asks Dixie if she ever intended to say anything meaningful. Dixie doesnt reply and follows her son to the patio. She tells JR that he has to understand why she left. She says there were serious risks with her pregnancy and she needed to avoid stress so she left. JR accuses her of wanting Kate more than him. Dixie says thats not fair. She didnt choose his sister over him. She says maybe she should have taken him with her. JR says she didnt want him. Dixie says she thought about him every day, but it wasnt as simple as coming back and taking up where things were left off. JR says she must have figured it was better starting over with an innocent child than deal with his troubled life. Dixie tells him theres a lot of things he doesnt understand. JR again says she chose one child over another.
Inside the house, Adam asks Babe what she was thinking when she invited Dixie over. Babe says she had to try. She says if JR doesnt sober up she would hate to have to choose her son over him.

In New York, Lily tells the man begging for change that shell give him his quarter back. She says her boyfriend will come and give him money. The man tells her to get out of his way. She finds a paper cup in a nearby garbage can and takes it, then proceeds to ask for change just like the man.
Jack arrives at the investigator studio to see Aidan. He is not happy to find Jonathan there and tells him hes the reason Lily is missing. Jonathans phone rings. Jonathan takes his phone from his pocket and notice its a call from outside the area. Before he can answer it, Jack grabs the phone and asks if the caller is Lily. Lily is on the other end but is surprised that her father answered. She doesnt speak. Jack, assuming it is Lily, asks her where she is. She hangs up. Jonathan says Lily wanted to talk to him and he shouldnt have taken his phone. Jack keeps the phone in case Lily calls back. Jonathan tells him if he takes his phone hes the one making trouble. Lily, amid the busyness, the noise and colors of red and bright lights, is freaking out on the streets of New York.
Babe arrives at Fusion and finds Kendall. She starts telling Kendall she doesnt want an argument when suddenly Kendall grabs her and hugs her, then tells her she loves her. Babe tells her shes scaring her. A glowing Kendall tells Babe she loves him so much. Babe tells her shes got it bad. Kendall says she loves her baby and would do anything for her child. Shes a mom, almost. She says she can do this, but she needs help. She asks Babe for some tips on motherhood. Kendall says they need a daycare center at Fusion so she can bring Spike to work. Babe is surprised by the name Spike. Kendall says the new area under construction would be the perfect place for a playground.
JR goes to the area under construction and takes a swig from his flask. He starts thinking about good times with Babe. He calls Babe and tells her he was a jerk. He asks her to come to the construction area in 15 minutes so they can talk. Babe agrees. Kendall asks if theres a problem. Babe admits to her that JR has been drinking again. She says hes been mean as a snake since he saw Dixie.
Zach goes to Dixies room at the casino. She tells him her meeting with JR was a disaster. She asks about Kendall. He informs Dixie that he and Kendall got married. A surprised Dixie congratulates him.
Adam tells Krystal, Jamie, Tad and Brooke that their planned confrontation of JR was an asinine idea. JR thinks they ganged up on him, he says. Tad says he cant understand Dixies reasons. Maybe the real question is who cares. He says Dixie has made it clear she doesnt need them. Maybe they should let her go. Tad says maybe shes in love with another man and thats why she stayed away. He says finding the answer will be the only way to get peace. He says he wishes he would have never went to Davids cabin. Then Dixie would be gone and JR wouldnt be going through this. He says if they can find out who Dixie really is maybe they can let her go. Brooke asks what if the truth makes everything worse.
Dixie tells Zach she almost told JR the truth. Zach says maybe she should have. Dixie says that would have made things worse. She has to find Kate first and bring her home. Zach says hell take care of Madden and bring Kate to her. Dixie tells him he shouldnt do that. He just got married. She tells him to take care of his family and shell take care of hers.
Kendall is surprised to hear the news about Dixie and says JR must be out of his mind. Kendall tells Babe that JR has pulled her out of some dark places. Shell talk to him. Babe says if she can get him through this shell owe her. Kendall says shes doing this for JR, not Babe.
