Craig goes to see Aaron and informs him on Lucy’s condition. Craig asks Aaron to help Lucy try and get her memory back. Of course Aaron agrees. Arriving at the hospital, Aaron is warmly greeted by Sierra. After Aaron leaves for Lucy’s room, Sierra reminds Craig how nasty he treated Aaron. Craig admits he was wrong about Aaron, but quickly reminds Sierra that Aaron and Lucy need to be together now more than ever, to help her regain her memory. Sierra says she will not allow him to use Aaron. Craig reminds Sierra that Lucy needs familiarity like her friends and family so if Sierra takes her back to Montega, it could set her recovery back.
In the hospital, Sierra tells Lucy she wants her to return to Montega. Later Lucy is visited by Aaron who she slowly recognizes. Lucy tells Aaron she remembers Alison saying something before her accident but she cannot remember exactly. Aaron continues to sit with Lucy and tells her about their motorcycle rides, their recent road trip and that Christmas is next week. Lucy remembers the fire at the barn, but cannot remember making love to Aaron. Aaron tells Craig that Lucy remembered him but not much more than that. Aaron asks Craig if he still intends to keep him away from Lucy when she regains total consciousness. Craig says no and shakes Aaron’s hand.
