Tad asks why David would want to go to Gloucester on Christmas.

Kathy comes out and tells them Merry Christmas.
Erica says that they were afraid that Kendall wouldn’t make it home for Christmas. Zach says that they could call it a miracle. Erica asks what happened because it was like they fell off the map. Zach says that they got stuck in the snow and slept the whole night in the car. Kendall says that it was part of the night and asks who wants breakfast. Erica tells Kendall that she made it home safe and sound to see her boys for Christmas and asks what is wrong. Kendall asks if Erica can ever forgive her for the way Kendall hurt her.

David tells Gayle that they don’t have to keep Greenlee in a coma anymore because she has made a remarkable recovery.

David says that he has a gut feeling that the time is now.
Kendall says that Erica did so much to help out and then got pushed away in the cruelest way in Los Angeles. Erica says that it is all right, but Kendall says that it isn’t. Kendall explains that at the hotel room, Aidan had a gun and she thought that he had just killed someone. Erica says that Kendall must have been so terrified and Kendall says that she was terrified for Erica’s life. Kendall apologizes for all the things that she said and explains that Erica had to get out of there or Kendall really believed that Aidan would have killed her. Zach brings out breakfast and Erica and Kendall thank him. Zach asks the boys if they are ready to look at the presents. Kendall asks how she can ever show Zach how grateful she is that he kept his promise and never gave up on her. Erica says that Zach did it because he loves Kendall.

Joe asks where Pete is and Opal says that he is in Switzerland spending the holidays with Palmer. Tad and Jake argue about Gloucester. Tad says that they don’t have a choice, but to let it go.
David says that Greenlee is willing herself back to life, even though everyone who supposedly loved her wrote her off without a second thought. David explains to Gayle that everyone who “loved” Greenlee betrayed her and that he told her about it when she came to. David says that he let everyone believe that Greenlee was dead because they deserved to suffer like she did. Gayle points out that Greenlee never woke up. David says that he is going to give Greenlee her life back and when he does, she will learn the truth about the people she gave her love to.

Ryan says that he was never planning on telling her and asks Annie what is in the bag. Ryan asks if the bag is something to take him out so that she can run off with Emma again. Annie says that she no longer has to go to extremes to get what she wants because she is a Chandler now.
JR and Marissa show up at Tad’s. JR introduces Ruth to his wife, Marissa. Joe says that JR and Marissa can visit him and Ruth in Florida any time they want and Colby tells JR to bring extra sun block for his head. Tad says that he got something for Joe and gives him a red thong. Tad says that it is a joke and that the real present is that he wants to fly Joe and Ruth up in the summer for as long as they want to stay. Tad tells Joe about the tip about David and says that his instincts are telling him to check it out. Tad says that he wants to, but he can’t run out on the girls. Joe says that it sounds like Tad would be doing it for the girls and suggests that Tad should make his apologies and leave because nothing is more important than protecting the people you love.
Erica says that she is going to leave and let Kendall enjoy the rest of her Christmas with her family. Zach walks Erica out and Erica asks how she can repay him for saving her daughter.
