Tad sits down with Greg at the lounge and asks how he knew Kate was his daughters name. Was it through David Hayward? Greg says Hayward knows nothing about this. He says he was Dixies obstetrician when she was pregnant with Kate. He delivered Kate after Dixies accident through a C-section. She was born very much alive, he says.
Ryan tells Erica if she wants to blame someone for this situation with Kendall she should blame him. Its because of him Kendall became pregnant and got into this position. Erica doesnt listen to Ryan and continues blasting Dixie. She tells Dixie that she was selfish and has let Madden prey on other women. Dixie tells Erica she could have stopped Madden too.

He asks how Zach could. Zach says this isnt about him. Kendall subconsciously tells Ryan to listen to Zach. Zach says hell honor Kendalls wishes. Ryan asks even if it means risking Kendalls life. Kendall subconsciously tells Ryan hell have to hold it together and make a life for Spike. Ryan asks Zach what he would have after this is over.

Babe asks JR if hell go to rehab. JR says he has responsibilities. He needs to get to the company. Babe says it wont take long, maybe just a couple days. JR says hes on the hospital board and people know him. Babe suggests they go to another hospital. Jamie walks in and asks JR if he tried to kill Babe. JR rants and raves and walks out.

Jamie says JR tried to kill her and shes letting him get away with it.
Greg tells Tad that Dixie was able to see and touch Kate, then Dixie had to undergo emergency surgery. Kate died before Dixie woke up. Dixie wouldnt believe that Kate is dead and thinks he stole her. Shes still in denial.
Dixie tells Zach she knows what its like to love a baby so much that you would give anything. She says maybe Kendall needs to do something good for someone else for once. Zach says he cant lose Kendall. Dixie says by respecting her choice hes honoring their love.
Ryan is talking to one of Kendalls doctors, who says so far there is no change in the pressure on Kendalls brain. The pressure likely will increase and that means they could lose her. JR has just approached and says he wont accept that.
Babe tells Jamie that JR agreed to go to rehab. Jamie asks Babe why shes not more freaked out about him trying to kill her. Babe says hes on the edge and she wont let him go over. Jamie asks that if she had so much respect for JR why did she panic when he asked about little Adam. Babe says she was acting on instinct. Little Adam is safe with her mother, she says. She asks Jamie to give JR some credit for once. Jamie asks why she would want to live with someone who tried to kill her.
Greg tells Tad that Dixie chased him around the world. If she truly believed Kate was alive she would go public. Tad asks Greg how he knows hes telling the truth. Greg says he has Kates death certificate. Greg says Dixies harassment has gone on for too long. If Tad cant stop her, hell call the authorities.
Ryan asks JR how he explains to their son what happened to their mother. JR asks him why hes giving up. Theyll find an answer. They have to make it happen. Josh approaches and asks JR if hes afraid Kendalls death would lengthen his sentence. Ryan is puzzled. Josh asks Ryan if JR hasnt told him yet. Josh says this wasnt an accident. JR orders Josh to get out of here. Erica approaches and says thats a good idea. She accuses Josh of pushing his experimental treatments on Kendall. Josh leaves. Dixie walks into the scene and JR tells her he doesnt need to see her ever again. Tad enters and tells JR to have some respect. Next Babe and Jamie approach. JR asks if this is an ambush.
