Jonathan and Lily are traipsing around New York seeing the sites. They're not holding hands but each are gripping one end of a handkerchief to stay connected.

Outside Kendall's room, Ryan tells Derek he's going into the room. Bianca tells Ryan that this is not what Kendall wants. She doesn't want the two most important men in her life killing each other.

Ryan asks Bianca why she doesn't want him to go into Kendall's room. Bianca tells him to take a minute and see what he's doing. Ryan says he's trying to take the baby so Kendall can live. Bianca says she could live in regret and hating him for taking away her choice.
Zach insists that Kendall will come out of this. He doesn't need Julia giving him the worst-case scenario. He opens the door and makes Julia leave. Kendall is shown with a tear coming from her eye. She asks if she'll be trapped in here for the rest of her life.

Aidan tells Jack he has the power to bring Lily home safe and sound but refuses to do it. He can tell Lily to come back and let her be with Jonathan. Erin says that's a brilliant idea.
JR says it's impossible for him to say the words that he tried to kill Babe. He admits that he pushed over the building material. He says the person who did that is a stranger. He must have been insane. Babe tells him not to claim not guilty by reason of insanity. She tells JR they're over. JR says he loves her and wants her back.
Stuart goes to the hospital and finds Erica. She tearfully tells him her daughter could die. What can she do? Stuart tells her to go on loving her.

He stops mid-sentence as something occurs to him. He wants to save Kendall because he loves her. He's in love with her. He says he's feeling everything he ever felt for her. But he's too late, isn't he? Bianca tells Ryan that Kendall and Zach love each other. They're married.
Zach tells Kendall to hang in there. Spike has to stay in there longer. Then they have a life to plan. He tells her if she opens her eyes he'll let her plan all their trips. He says Spike needs his mom and he needs her too. He can't let her die. Kendall says she won't let him lose another person she loves.
Babe asks JR how many times has she heard this. JR says it's different this time. He says Stuart took him on an eavesdropping trip. He heard her tell Josh and Jamie that she loves him. It hit home. He knows Babe loves him. He was an idiot for ever doubting that. Babe asks if he believes this marriage was a plot to steal his son. JR says he believes everything she has said. He should have trusted her all along. He'll take full responsibility for everything. He misses her. Babe says it doesn't matter how sincere he is. As soon as he cracks open a bottle of booze she's ducking for cover. She won't live like that. She starts to walk away.
Aidan urges Jack to tell Lily she can be with Jonathan. Jack asks if he is supposed to do a 180. Aidan says he needs to if he wants his daughter back. Erin says they're determined to be together whether he consents or not. Jack tells Aidan to do it.
Jonathan lowers his head and puts it between his hands. He tells Lily they should go back to the hotel as he has a headache and it's getting worse. He says the last time he had a headache he had the brain tumor. That's when he did all those bad things. He tells Lily he doesn't want to hurt her. Lily says tension, dehydration and heat cause headaches. She gets a glass of ice and puts it on his neck. Jonathan thanks her.
