Ben and Lien board a plane for Washington. Ben tries to phone Jessica and learns she is sharing a room with Marshall. Lien says it makes sense that Jessica is sharing a room, since Marshall is still ill. In their hotel room, Marshall wakes up and finds Jessica reading the newspaper. Jessica already has breakfast waiting for him. Jessica shaves Marshall’s face (Marshall humorously says he feels cheap). Marshall says that Jessica first refused to shave him, as she was afraid he would try something. Jessica tells him to shut up and she begins his shave. When Marshall’s shave is complete, he asks Jessica if she wants to help him shower. Jessica changes the subject and calls to see if Marshall’s suit is ready. Ben (holding Marshall’s suit) and Lien arrive. Jessica introduces Marshall (wearing a towel) to Lien. Lien explains to Marshall that his daughter is dead. Marshall gets angry and feels Lien and Ben are lying just to get back at him. Marshall says it must be a mistake and then he holds on to Jessica and cries. Lien and Ben leave. Lien hugs Jessica goodbye and wishes things had turned out differently. Alone with Jessica, Ben asks her if they can talk about getting back together when she returns to Oakdale. Jessica agrees. Jessica explains that she will return to Oakdale when Marshall is physically ready to travel.
Kim meets with her son Chris and tells him her concerns about Will and Barbara. Kim tells Chris that Barbara feels she is being cut out of Will’s life, so she asks Chris to try and find out a few things for her. Chris agrees.
At the hospital Alison sees Emily. Alison asks why she can’t see Will any more and that Hal practically kicked her out. Emily says that Will just probably met a critical point in his therapy and Dr. Michaels does not want any outside influences. Alison says she is afraid Will may feel abandoned by her. Emily tells her to speak to Hal. Emily leaves. Alison sees someone placing Will’s files on a cabinet, then she tries searching for it herself, but is unsuccessful. Chris arrives and asks for Will’s chart. John Dixon walks in and catches Chris looking at Will’s psychiatric files and tells him that he has no business reading his chart and it is unethical. Chris says that Will is his cousin and is concerned (Alison hears this). Bob comes walking in and catches John reprimanding Chris. John explains to Bob that Chris was late for his pediatric rounds but Bob doesn’t believe this. Chris explains that John caught him looking in Will’s files, because his mom (Kim) was worried about Will and he offered to try and find out something. Chris tells Bob his concerns that Will‘s fingers were burned when he came to emergency the night of the fire and that the police say the barn was first doused with gasoline but Will says he only lit matches, so the story does not match up. Chris feels Will did not start the fire.
