It's Thanksgiving and dinner is being planned at the Valley Inn. A hotel employee informs Zach that he cannot allow Erica's family back for Thanksgiving dinner after last year's fiasco, but Zach dismisses the man by slipping him some money. Inside the dining room, Bianca is putting place cards by each plate. Erica walks in and notices Bianca putting down a place card for Jack. Erica tells Bianca she might as well throw away her place card because she won't share a table with Jack. Bianca gets upset with her mother and urges her to change her mind.
David is telling Kendall at her place that Ryan is Emma's biological father. He swears to it on his daughter's grave. Kendall refuses to believe him and tells him to get out. She accuses him of telling the same lie he told about Tad and Dixie being Emma's parents. David says he did believe Emma was their daughter early on but now he has learned that Emma's DNA matches Ryan's. Kendall tells him he's lying. David mentions the DNA test on Spike and Ryan last summer. He says he took that and then got Emma's DNA and compared them. Ryan's name is written across every cell in Emma's body. Kendall asks what Ryan said about this. David says he hasn't told Ryan and will leave that to her. David taunts Kendall about Ryan's attention being split now between Spike and Emma. She tells him again to leave. He says he's leaving. Zach arrives and tells him he's not leaving soon enough.
At the hospital, Jeff is going through a stack of DNA reports, each one showing that there is no match between Annie and Emma. As Annie nervously awaits a second stack of reports, Ryan tries to calm her by showing her some card tricks. He says he wants to teach the tricks to her so she can show Emma. That way, when Emma comes home she'll believe her mother can do magic.

Dixie says it is the same. It's betrayal. Tad says maybe it's too soon to talk about this. Dixie says it's Thanksgiving. They're supposed to be thankful for the blessings in their lives. Tad tells JR that Dixie is right. They have forgiven each other. He tells JR that the only reason he feels pain is because real love was there. He says one day he'll realize that he can forgive and that special amazing person is back in your life. Dixie says she's grateful for this moment and a chance to be a family again.
