At Metro, Lucy worries that Aaron will get physically and emotionally hurt in the fight. Dusty assures Lucy that Aaron will be fine, and the two share a kiss. Lucy doesn’t think that she should go to the weigh-in or the fight with Dusty because she doesn’t want to cause problems for Rafael or Dusty with Dominic.

Jessica arrives because she needs Ben to sign some papers regarding Jack’s court case. Bob thinks Jessica only accused Ben of drug use because she's angry about the divorce. Bob thinks of Ben as a member of his family and believes he isn’t capable of using drugs. Bob explains that Ben has gone through the humiliation of people whispering about him every time he walks around the hospital. Bob thinks the worst humiliation for Ben has been being asked to give a urine sample before he can perform surgery again. Bob tells Jessica she should stop interfering in Ben’s life.

At the gym, Aaron feels hurt because Holden hasn’t shown up at the weigh-in.

Lily also tells Holden that Dominic threatened Lucy’s life.

Holden thinks that Lily always puts everyone else ahead of his or her family.. Lily tells Holden that Aaron is family and she was also trying to keep him from danger. This comment makes Holden very angry, and he says that their argument isn’t even about their family, it's about her using every possible excuse not to work on fixing the problems in their marriage.

Holden says he is tired of being the only person fighting for their marriage and tells Lily their marriage is over. Lily cries as she watches Holden go into the next room.
