Kendall tells Ricky that Ryan & Greenlee got engaged and she wants to be happy for them while she is but a part of her still wishes. She asks if it makes her a horrible person. Ricky says he could give her a speech about rising above but honestly when in pain and people close are having everything go their way, it can be tough. Kendall asks if its selfish. Ricky thinks when she's ready, things will change and her friends will understand. Kendall says there's something else, Ryan went to California to investigate Zach's death. Ricky asks what he found out. Kendall tells him nothing and it was an accident. Ricky thinks that should be a relief. Kendall says it should because Ryan's intentions were good to give her closure but it wasn't unavoidable. Kendall says she pushed Zach to go help them and put him on that plane. Ricky thought she stopped blaming herself. Kendal says she's trying but it isn't working because she's ready to face the world and it's great but then she goes and sees how perfect Ryan & Greenlee's life is.
Cara asks Griffin why he did that to Kendall. Griffin says she's just his patient. Cara says she obviously wanted to talk but he rushed out. Cara thinks it bothers Griffin to see Kendall in pain.

Cara tells Griffin he always does this when things gets real, he looks for the exit. Cara says it's because of her. She tells him she loves him and can't thank him enough for everything but she's right here. Griffin says she's still a pain in the ass. Cara says they were having a moment. Griffin realizes he dropped his keys between here and Kendall's. Griffin goes back to look and Jake walks up to Cara. Jake asks how she's doing. Cara says she's good and tells Jake to not ever let Tad to become a doctor and get the surgeon's complex. Jake asks how it's going at Kendall's. Cara says she's physically good. Jake tells her the girl with leukemia is doing very well. Cara hopes their parents will get the message this time. Jake isn't sure why it upset Cara so much. Cara says Griffin doesn't go the extra step with patients but she does. Jake says he's going to meet Amanda and Cara says she'll see him at the hospital.
Kendall apologizes to Ricky for getting emotional. Ricky tells her not to because come basketball season when the 76ers are out of the playoffs he'll be crying. They laugh and Ricky says he's there anytime she needs to talk. Kendall thanks him and Griffin walks by. He looks in the window and sees Ricky and Kendall sitting close.
Caleb tells Erica that she needs to tell Kendall what's going on. Erica refuses and says it would put Kendall behind bars. Erica doesn't want to debate this anymore. Caleb says he'll do anything to help but she's making a mistake by not telling Kendall or trusting Jack. Erica assures him she does trust Jack completely.
