At the country club, Bonnie tells her mom (Jessica) that Sara just started work here waiting on tables in the pool area. Jessica tells Bonnie that Sara didn’t look too happy busing tables. Bonnie insists that this will give her the opportunity to get work experience. Jessica is shocked when Bonnie tells her that she plans to become Sara’s foster parent. Bonnie asks Jessica to get Marshall to submit a DNA sample to see if he is Sara’s dad. Jessica tries to get Bonnie from discussing this topic any further, but Bonnie is persistent. Bonnie says there is too many things regarding Sara which indicate that Marshall is her father (the college ring, the fact that Sara is from Brazil and the name similarities). Jessica says she cannot confront Marshall with this and suggests that Bonnie herself ask Marshall to agree to a DNA test. Bonnie agrees. Jessica heads to the police station. Meanwhile, Sara isn’t too thrilled about her job busing tables. Bonnie reminds Sara that she buses tables at Java Underground and suggests that Sara accept this job opportunity more graciously. Marshall arrives and is seated. Sara serves him a glass of water and accidentally spills it on him. Marshall gets angry since this spill ruined his legal paperwork.

Bonnie walks in on this and warns Marshall not to touch Sara.

Rick meets the reporter at the Old Mill. Rick hands him over the $50,000. This writer then says that $50,000. is not enough money and he wants more. Rick says he has no more money. This writer reminds Rick how he has been killing patients for years and has been getting away with it, so asking for more money should not be a problem for him.

Rick said he could not stand to see them waste away in agony. The writer tells Rick that he is not God and calls him a demented psychopath.
