Paul lies in his hospital bed at Memorial with his eyes closed. He is suddenly shocked out of his sleep when he feels someone touch his face. Emily stands over him with a meek and guilty look on her face. Hi, Paul," she says softly. Paul looks at her suspiciously and asks her if she is there to finish the job. Emily tells him that she would never hurt him. She admits that she is there to see for herself that he is all right. Emily asks Paul about his relationship with Meg. Paul tells Emily that it was just a business arrangement and that he paid her a lot of money to nurse him back to health. Emily tells Paul that she thinks maybe they can try again to work on their relationship. Paul is a little stunned that after everything they have been through, Emily wants to try over. Emily tells Paul that she loved him, and Paul says that he loved her as well, but not in the way that she wants him to. When Paul basically says, in so many words, that there is no chance for him and Emily, she immediately assumes that it is because of Meg and asks him if he loves her. Paul tries to get Emily to keep Meg out of this. He also warns her that he owes Meg a great deal and that he will protect her in the same way that he will protect Emily. Jessica walks in and asks Emily to step outside so that she can speak to her client alone. Paul tells Jessica that he is going to tell her the entire story, from the night that he and Emily were last together, on New Year's Eve, and he wants Emily to hear it. Emily looks a little worried that Paul might actually tell the truth. The relief shows in her eyes when Paul continues the story without putting any blame on her. He tells Jessica that he tried to kill himself by shooting himself. He says that when he didnt die, he found the cabin and nursed himself back to health with all of the medicine that was there. When Emily leaves, Jessica tells him that she does not believe his story. She shrugs it off and tells Paul that he has bigger problems — Hal wants to know who elses blood was found in the motel room with his.

Barbara tells Jen that Hal is trying to identify a car that has been sitting in the motel lot. Jen also knows that someone elses blood was found in the motel room. She is worried and begins to suspect that Dusty and Paul were there together. She and Barbara head to the station. Hal confirms that it is Dustys blood, and his car. Jennifer is very upset and leaves the station. Back at the hospital, once again, Paul is shocked out of his sleep. This time, it is by Jennifer, who is shaking him and demanding to know where Dusty is.

Casey is glad and starts kissing Maddie. They are on the floor by the couch, kissing, when Nancy Hughes walks in and calls out for Katie. Casey hurries to get up and then helps Maddie up, hoping his Gram doesnt suspect anything. Nancy asks them what they are doing there. Casey tells her that Margo wanted Katie to have some flowers to cheer her up while Mike is away. Casey tells Nancy that there is no need for her to stick around. Nancy catches the hint and asks him if Margo knows that the two of them are there together and alone. She tells them that she thinks they should go before they get in any trouble, because she remembers being that age. When they leave, she shakes her head.

Casey takes off. He goes to the station, and he and his dad talk in a private room. He comes up with a story that he is doing a school project about teenage marriage.

His dad gives him the names of some, and Casey heads back to Java to give the names to Will and Gwen. Maddie hugs him and thanks him. Casey then offers them a ride to see a judge, since they dont have any money.
