"Erica" wonders what David is doing at her room and tells him to leave now. David comes in and shuts the door, telling her that he is onto her. David says he knew something was up when he ran into earlier since he knows Erica doesn't eat fried chicken or onion rings. David notices she is drinking. "Erica" offers him the rest of the drinks and tells him to leave. David wonders what else she's hiding. She asks again why he's here and how he found her. David admits that he followed her. She tells him that he had no right to do that because she just wanted peace and quiet. "Erica" blames it all on the last 24 hours she's been through. David calls it all excuses and says she's behaving like an addict. "Erica" says she's exhausted and doesn't think she's doing anything wrong. David brings up her family finding out she's drinking again. "Erica" states they won't find out unless he tells them. David says if she helps him, he'll help her.
Jesse asks Jack if Erica has said anything about her kidnappers. Jack says she hasn't said anything to him and asks about the keychain that she had been carrying around. Jesse doesn't know about it and says they haven't come up with anything. Jack states that the kidnappers are still out there and he can't have them come after Erica again.
David wants "Erica" to help get his license back. She calls it blackmail. David thinks he's just getting them both what they want. "Erica" claims she has everything she wants and isn't going to let David use her. David tells her that he's just trying to keep her secrets. David brings up the shooting again.

Scott tells her to take all the time she needs. Scott tells her he would do anything for her because he loves her. Ryan and Greenlee arrive and Ryan asks Madison if she's ready. Madison asks if it could just be her and Ryan. Greenlee says she understands and Scott does as well. Ryan and Madison exit together.
David tells "Erica" that everything is starting to make sense and blames her forgetting on the alcohol. "Erica" says she's been traumatized and forgets things. David can't believe she forgot covering up for months that Kendall shot him. David tells her that Kendall is guilty of attempted murder and if he makes one call to the police, he gets justice. "Erica" agrees to write a letter of recommendation for him and asks what he wants her to say. David is surprised that that's it. David thinks she's giving in way too easily.
Jesse and Angie bring their baby Lucy to the park. They sit on the bench and Jesse talks about how it won't be long before Lucy's playing on the playground. They laugh and Angie kisses him, saying she's glad to have her Jesse back since he was so different after Lucy was born and she didn't understand why. Jesse has flashbacks to the birth. Angie states again that she's glad to have him back.
Scott returns home to the apartment and looks at some of the baby toys. Greenlee walks in and says she thought he could use someone who knows how he feels. Scott tells her about starting to pack up.

Opal talks about being glad that Kendall, Bianca, and Erica are all still alive. Jack tells her that Erica isn't picking up her phone or answering his texts. Jack says what really concerns him is that he thinks she's running on fumes. Opal comments that even Erica Kane isn't superhuman and needs to take a breather. Jack agrees. Opal brings up Erica having to go to the Betty Ford clinic in the past. Jack tells her they can never let Erica fall like that again.
David thinks Erica would normally push back harder. "Erica" says she'll do anything to protect Kendall. David is surprised that she now remembers covering up the shooting. David sits with her and jokes that getting pardoned and his license back is almost worth getting shot. "Erica" brings up the time David spiked everyone's punch at a party. David comments on almost ending up in bed with her. "Erica" says David should have been in prison but he's a free man as always. David comments that it sounds like she's impressed. "Erica" says there's no denying that David is brilliant and when he wants something, nothing stops him and she can identify with his passion. David asks if she's saying she likes the bad boy in him.
Scott and Greenlee continue packing things. Greenlee comments that she's sure Madison would have been a great mom. Scott looks at the baby picture and talks about how Madison would always read books and he would tell the baby jokes.

Madison tells Angie that she wants her baby back.
Jesse and Ryan walk on and Jesse tells him he's sorry to hear about the baby. Ryan knew it'd be hard and thinks Madison should be with the baby now.

Angie wants Madison to sit with her. Madison doesn't want to be there. Angie tells her she can't run from the pain and she has to grieve. Madison sits with her and says she doesn't want to cry anymore. Angie tells her it's a part of the process. Madison doesn't think it's a process as her baby is dead. Madison remembers feeling how strong her baby was and even when she was born, she thought she'd be okay. Madison prayed that she'd have a chance and now she's gone. Angie says she understands what she's going through but Madison shouts back that she doesn't because her baby didn't die.
Jesse tells Ryan that they can't make sense of a baby dying. Jesse tells him that all he can do is accept it. Ryan states that he can't.

Greenlee sits at Fusion as "Erica" arrives. She comes up to Greenlee and startles her, commenting on Fusion's line. "Erica" sits with her and is surprised that Ryan isn't joining her and she's sitting alone. Greenlee tells her that Ryan is with Madison at the baby's funeral. "Erica" wonders why she's not with him. Greenlee goes off about wishing she was with Ryan but knows Ryan is devastated about this. "Erica" tells her to go to Ryan. Greenlee wonders how she does that when all her mistakes have hurt Ryan. "Erica" tells her to fight what she wants. Greenlee says there's nothing to fight as there's a wall she can't get through. "Erica" tells her to buy her dinner and she'll show her how to get through the problem.
Jesse and Angie sit at Krystal's and Jesse asks Angie what's wrong. Angie tells him that she feels guilty since their child lived through a birth that most couldn't survive while Madison's died. Jesse states that it's tough and they had a miracle. Angie wonders how God chose which child would live.
Ryan and Madison sit together at the park. Ryan asks how she's feeling. Madison calls it the hardest thing she's ever had to do but she had to say goodbye. Ryan hugs her. Scott arrives and tells her that he couldn't stay away. Scott says he watched the service from the top of the hill and hopes she doesn't mind because he loved Sara too.
"Erica" and Greenlee have dinner. Greenlee calls this a first that they're sharing a meal. "Erica" thinks they're progressing. Greenlee wonders if she's completely desperate. "Erica" suggests she's pathetic. "Erica" says she's disappointed because Greenlee is supposed to kick butt to get what she wants. Greenlee tells her that she's not with Ryan because she went after what she wanted except she lied to him for months and now the baby is gone. "Erica" tells her she will fix it but Greenlee calls it unfixable. "Erica" tells her that talking about it won't fix anything. Greenlee agrees and tells her that there's something she needs to do. Greenlee thanks her for knocking some sense into her and she exits.
Jack calls "Erica" and leaves her a message. There's a knock on the door and David arrives at Jack's. David's looking for Erica and Jack tells him that she isn't here and doesn't think she'd want to see him anyways. David informs Jack that he's already seen Erica today, but just thought she'd be home now. Jack is surprised wondering where he saw her. David says she was out and about. Jack asks what David wants. David says he needs her to sign something is all. Jack grabs the letter from him and thinks David must be kidding about Erica helping get his license back.
