Dixie asks tad what this is all about and why he kissed her. He does not want to answer that question. He tells her that after years of Euro-trash and David Hayward, he thought; what the hell and that he should take his turn also. She notices his tone and tells him hes a son of a bitch.
Aidan talks to Di at the restaurant and bar about how he does not understand why Erin no longer wants to see him. He tells her that it makes no sense. She tells him that that is what happens when you love somebody. People walk away and cannot see what they have. She suggests that maybe Erin could have met somebody else. He tells her he seriously doubts that. Erin is too cautious and too protective of her heart, he says. She asks him what he believes is the most obvious answer. He replies that he does not know but hes going to find out. And he asks her to help him.
Kendall goes to the hospital and notices that Ryan is there also. He seems to sense that he must make certain that Spike is ok.

She tells him she no longer wants to be scared. He assures her that he is her husband and little Adams father. He will never let anything or anybody hurt her again. He will keep her safe. She tells him she believes him. He tells her she does not have to say that again. She tells him she is not just saying that. For a long time, she was uncertain. But she knows in her heart that she can trust him and love him. He tells her he will never let her down again. He will die first. And he kisses her. She kisses him back.. And it looks like they are connecting. Kendall tells Ryan she can tell that Spike ha some sort of sense of the earthquake and its gotten him freaked out. He laughs and asks the baby if that is true. Has he had some sort of emotional trauma? He then tells her that he knows that his son has recovered from the earthquake. Right then, Kendall motions for Zach to come inside. She informs him that Spike is doing better and since he does not have teeth, he does not bite. She then tells Zach that it is cue to hold his step son. Zach observes Ryan holding Spike and hesitates. But Kendall encourages her husband to hold Spike. Ryan gives him to Zach. Zach holds the baby and smiles.
Dixie tells Tad that he drags her there, yells at her, then kisses her. Then he has the gall to say something so cruel. He then sarcastically tells her he is sorry and its all his fault. Hes done terrible things to her. She asks him if he is mocking her. He tells her that hes not going to be a fool and think that one antique moment of feeling some sort of chemistry is going to get them back together. She tells him she is not saying that either. But she doesnt believe that there has to be hate between them. She tells him that she also misses Dixie and aches every day for their daughter. He asks her what she wants from him. She tells him she just wishes that he would acknowledge that she is the mother of his child. Even though she went away, he cannot see her as a stranger. He tells her he no longer knows her. She cries and tells him that he must know that they were in love for a long time. They were married. They knew each other since she was 18 years old. All she wants is for him to talk to her and realize who she is. He asks her if she thinks he should forgive her. She says she does not expect that. He tells her that she may not expect him to forgive and overlook everything shes done. But she sure wants it. Right then, David enters and wants to see Dixie.
JR tells babe that shes taught him everything about trust and forgiveness. And he will never forget it. She tells him that it is like a new wedding night for them again. But right then, she remembers something that makes her get out of bed and panic. She goes out the door. He asks her if hes done something wrong.
Di tells Aidan that a while back, he told her that she had a choice. She could either keep chasing after tad or she could just grow up and get over him. And she tells him that maybe he must similarly realize that maybe Erin does not want him. He tells her that its different. He does not believe that hes misread Erin. He knows that she was happy with him. He asks her if maybe she could go and talk to Erin. Maybe Erin could use a friend, right now. He assures Di that she must know that this is not about his ego. He just wants what is best for Erin and to know that she is not in some sort of trouble. She tells him she will do what she can. He tells her that hes sorry about her and Tad.
After noticing David entering Dixies room, Tad sarcastically tells him that hes right on time. Hes obviously upset about this. Dixie tells him he needs to shut up. He tells David that Dixie will just use him and dump him like all the others. She demands he gets out. He tells her she may consider him gone. He leaves and David asks her what that was all about. She asks him why he came. He tells her he wanted to see if that jerk was going to do what he threatened to do. She tells him that she is not going to trust him any more than tad. If he wants to make things up to her, then he may do that by getting her daughter back.
Outside of the maternity ward, where Kendall is out of earshot, Ryan tells Zach that he needs for Kendall to never know that Maddens name has come up.

She asks him if he was merely lying or conning her when he told her hed do anything for her. Was it just to get her into bed? He tells her absolutely nothing. She then tells him that she really needs him to find a child. It does not matter how he finds the child. He can fake a DNA test or do whatever he wants. All she wants is to be able to give Tad a baby so that he can get over this hell he is living with in regard to her. She tells David that all she has given the people she loves is grief.

He tells her he does not want to cause anybody any more pain. Hes tired of the gift that keeps on giving. She tells him she could take him home or back to Aidans. He tells her he needs to be left alone in his private hell. He doesnt want anything from her. It looks like shes not going to give up on him, however.
David asks Dixie if she wants him to judge her or attack her. He tells her that is not going to happen. He tells her he knows selfish. He knows warped. He lives it. He let her believe that they found Kate so that one night she would see him as her hero. He took her to a motel room and gave her all the assurance so that shed believe that hed answered her prayers.
