Griffin says he missed his flight. Kendall thinks he didn't get on it. Kendall says she was pissed when she found out as he made Cara worry. Kendall doesn't understand why he's back.

She tells him that their night was her first time and it changed her. David tells her it meant a lot to him and that's why he's trying to protect her.

Amanda tells him that what happened between them may not be over. Amanda tells JR that she might have an STD.
Griffin returns to Kendall and tells her this is a big waste of his time. Kendall brings up his community service in Chile. Kendall asks him again why he came back since he never told her. Griffin tells her that he was thinking about his patients and that they were close to getting a patient out of the ICU. Kendall asks if that means he's leaving when the patient is better. Jake comes in with Cara as Cara excitedly greets Griffin. Jake tells them that Griffin is back on staff which surprises Kendall. Jake goes to finish his paperwork.

A nurse comes in and tells Griffin that the patient is crashing so he rushes out. Cara comments that Griffin is so dedicated to his patients but that's not why he came back to Pine Valley. Kendall suggests she might be a small part of why he came back as she is a patient of his. Cara thinks she's upset. They joke about him and Cara tells her that the feelings are new for him.

Jane tells David to just admit he was using her. David instead admits that he's been very lonely and disconnected for a very long time. David asks if she has any idea what it's like to go through life with a family that thinks you're a monster. David thinks she knows what it's like which is why he believes they have such a powerful connection. David says that he's never felt closer to anyone in his entire life.

JR tells Amanda that all he gave her was a job. JR says that he got tested after he was done with Annie and was completely clear. JR offers to show her the paperwork. Amanda believes him and thinks she'd be ok too since he's the only other person she's slept with. JR asks when she was last tested. Amanda says this was her first time so JR suggests it could go back further to David or Ryan's brother. JR tells her that if she gave him an STD, he could've given it to Marissa when they just got back together. JR wonders how she could do this to him. Amanda says they need to stay calm and wait for the test results.
Cara talks with Griffin some more at the hospital. She tells him she loves him but she's not the only one that wants him around and if he'd put the charts down he might see that. Cara kisses him on the cheek and walks off. Jake comes up and tells Griffin that he's officially reinstated but will have to switch his community service to Pine Valley. Griffin walks off without a word.
Ryan can't get the safe open without tools. Ryan hates to leave without finding anything. He looks through some boxes with files. Ryan reads the notes to Angie. Angie says they're just standard medical files. Ryan finds one marked PO and all he finds in it is a key card. Ryan looks at it and all the card says is Project Orpheus.
Jack enters David's room as "Erica" hides. David tells him that they just have a business deal. Jack shouts at him that she's tired of being worked so hard. David claims that he thought she went home after their work but guesses she had something better to do. Jack exits and Jane closes the door. She tells him that was close. David tells her to get Jack under control. She reminds him that she's "Erica Kane" so she can be with whomever she wants to be. David thinks them being a couple is a bit much for everyone and that it's too soon to reveal that they're more than just business partners since everyone thinks something's wrong already. She wants to risk it but David reminds her that she'd end up in jail. David tells her to get control of Jack and kisses her before she exits.
Erica continues speaking about her father and how he left her and her mother for Hollywood. Erica says her father always cheated on her mother and treated her like dirt but that wasn't even the worst thing he did. Erica states that she wanted to hate him and pretend he never existed but he couldn't. Erica thought she could find peace and bury the pain when he died as she was strong, successful, and independent, but somehow she felt she still needed her father but he didn't protect her.

David comes to his office to meet with Angie. She says she's ready to continue treatment. David says he'll start with eye-drops and a shot that will dilate her eyes. David says he needs to take another skin sample. Angie asks what he'll be looking for in the retinal check. David says it'll be searching for the scarring from what led to her blindness. David tells her to take it one step at a time. She tells him not to patronize her as he led her to believe this was a slam dunk but now he's hedging his bets. David tells her that no medical procedures are slam dunks. Angie states that this one better be.
