With Donna crying and shaking and definitely sending out bad vibes, Eric demands that she tell him what is wrong. She denies anything is, but he knows better and keeps hounding her.

In Lt. Baker’s office, Stephanie shocks him by saying that Stephen Logan did not shoot her. He finds it hard to believe that her memory flashes are coming back just like that! And what she is telling him? That even with all the evidence stacked against Mr. Logan that if they go to trial, Stephanie can not or will not identify him as the shooter? Stephanie offers that she can’t because it wasn’t him. Baker asks then if it wasn’t him, then who was it? She doesn’t know, just that it wasn’t Stephen. Slowly he repeats it all again. Is that what she is saying, she doesn’t know who, but that it wasn’t Stephen Logan? He can’t help but wonder if these are really memory flashes or her mind playing tricks on her. She states with all due respect, she did not come here for a medical debate. She only came for what she thought was the right thing. She’s not going to be held responsible for putting an innocent man in prison. When Baker starts to object, she says no if’s, and’s or but’s. She’d like to make a suggestion – ask Stephen to take a lie detector test. She bets he will and will pass it. She swears she is as sure about this as anything in her life.

Brooke’s words echo in Donna’s head. Stephanie will leave them alone if she gets what she wants. Stormy won’t have to go to jail if Donna leaves Eric. Donna pulls away from Eric and says this is all too much. She didn’t realize it until he actually proposed just now. Frightened, she tells him she knows she’s going to ruin this as she ruins all her relationships, she always hurts the person she loves. And she does not want to hurt him. He keeps telling her that no she won’t. He says he knows her too well and she is not telling him everything. Trying to worm her way out of it, she stammers that she has never been married, she’s afraid of commitment, it’s not him, it’s her……she finally blurts out that she has been diagnosed, she is a sex addict.

Eric is astounded that Donna is telling him this. How come she has not mentioned this before? Again she stammers that she’s known for some while, but she wasn’t expecting to meet him and fall in love….she thought she could control herself, but she can’t. She cries that she loves him, she really does, but her desires are overwhelming. He says she is saying that like it is a bad thing……she says it is because of the sacredness they have and share….it’s beautiful and she treasures it, but it’s not going to last. She makes up a story about being in Insomnia the other day and seeing a really hot guy in the line in front of her and she had this chemical reaction and this desire rushed over her…the thoughts that were going through her head, she had to run out of there. He can’t believe she has not said anything until now but vows to her there are programs out there and they can work on this together.

She tells him no, there is no help. She has suffered the embarrassment and humiliation of being a sex addict as long as she can remember and she will not drag him into the depths of her sordid life. She can not hurt him like that. She loves him, but this is just not working for her and the closer they get, the worse it is going to be. “I just have to accept that this relationship is over. It just has to be.”

Brooke comes to the police station and seeks out Stephanie and asks what is going on? Baker and his son bring Stephen down the hall and Stephen greets Brooke. Charlie tells them surprise – when he told the D.A. that Stephanie would not testify against Stephen, she had to admit she did not have a case and released him. He’s free to go. They hug and kiss and say “I Love You: and he promises Brooke that he’s going to take responsibility and be the kind of father he always should have been.

At home, Brooke receives a phone call from Stephanie. She doesn’t want to mince words. She states that she has kept her end of the bargain and Brooke's father is free. Now Brooke can’t forget to keep her end of the deal. Brooke smarts how could she? Stephanie would never let her forget it. This is going to devastate Donna. Stephanie asks why can’t she accept this like a gift. Stephanie is giving her back her family and in return she’d like hers back. She’d like her husband home with her and this will be best for all concerned. Brooke says – best except for Donna and Eric! Stephanie repeats again that relationship would never last…it never does with Eric. And one of these days even Donna would start looking around…she’ll see some nice, young fellow down by the pool and she’ll see that she married a man old enough to be her father. She will leave him and break his heart. She tells her again that she wants her family back, she wants her husband with her. Brooke can make this happen. “You make this happen, or I promise you your brother will be in jail.”

Donna shrugs loose from Eric and tells him not to question her. There will be other lovers. She can’t be monogamous with him or any other man. He deserves better than her. He questions her still, where is this coming from? She says from a place, a horrible, shameful place deep inside that she hides from everyone, but she can’t hide it from him anymore. She offers that even Stephanie called her a slut, and while she hates the word, she’s right and she can’t hide it from him any longer. He holds her and chastises her for being so down on herself. He loves her and he’s not going to let her talk about herself like that. She says it’s all true. How can he want to be with her knowing that she will be with other men? He says she is right, he can’t do that. He couldn’t tolerate that, but he’s not going to leave her…not ever….they’ll get through this…they’ll go get help…some sexual addiction counseling, they’ll go together. Her admission does not make him love her any less. In fact it makes him love her more that she is willing to share her deepest, darkest secrets…and he is not going to walk away from her ever! He says she is worth it when she claims she isn’t. And he wants her to be his wife and he will accept nothing less. If this is a sickness, then it’s together in sickness and in health, then he is not walking away from her, not ever.

Brooke is glad her dad is out of jail. He says Storm doesn’t belong behind bars either, and Donna is the one who is suffering. It’s diabolical what Stephanie is doing by taking away Donna’s one true love. What price are they asking her to pay? Brooke sympathizes, but not to blame himself. It’s bittersweet – his freedom, Storm’s freedom for Donna’s happiness. She’s stronger than she knows; stronger than even they know. And she realizes there is no other option and she will do the right thing.

Donna gets a call on her cell phone and excuses herself to Eric to go outside for better reception. It’s Stephanie who asks if she has told Eric yet? Donna explains that she has tried, but can’t. He’s too in love with her and won’t listen. Stephanie says she knows he is caught up in something, but reminds her that she has to be the cool-headed one here or the deal is off. “Believe me, I will call Lt. Baker and tell him it was your brother who shot me.” Donna begs her please don’t do that. Stephanie says she can and she will. Donna begs her to wait, it’s not that simple. Stephanie demands that she send her husband home to her. Donna pleads, isn’t there some other way? Stephanie grunts, “no…. time’s out. Do it now!”
