Maggie and Alice have joined the Deveraux barbeque. Marlena also arrives at the party. Jack asks to speak privately with Marlena later. Everyone wonders what is keeping Chelsea and Max while Abby secretly hopes that Chelsea didnt try to seduce Max.
Jack is anxious to get Patrick out so Jennifer offers to go talk to Patrick while he is packing his things. While they are talking, Jennifer leans too far back and knocks over some boxes. Patrick leaps up to keep her from falling back just as Jack, dressed in a funny chefs outfit, walks in. Jack demands that Patrick get his hands off Jennifer. Jennifer defends Patrick by explaining that he was keeping her from getting flattened by boxes. Patrick apologizes for piling the boxes so high. Jack yells at Patrick to put his shirt back on and accuses him of using any chance he can to put his arms around Jennifer. Jennifer apologizes to Patrick for Jacks remarks. Jack yells at Jennifer because she cant see Patricks true intentions and Patrick yells at Jack for speaking to Jennifer that way. Jack tells Patrick not to tell him how to be with his wife and Patrick grabs his shirt and storms out. Jennifer understands that Jack doesnt like Patrick but reiterates that Patrick was a big help when they thought Jack was dead. Jack says he hated the thought of Patrick being here in his place. Jennifer assures Jack that no one can take his place and promises that Patrick is moving out. Jack and Jennifer hug. Jack flashes back to hearing his prognosis from Lexie and starts to cry. Jack quickly wipes away his tears and covers it up by kissing Jennifer. Jack looks sad as Jennifer hugs him and gushes about all they have to look forward to.
Patrick leaves a message on Bonnies phone to check in about Mimi. Abby comes outside to complain that Max and Chelsea arent back yet. Patrick suggests that Chelsea simply made Max take the long way home so the town could see her riding in Maxs convertible.
Maggie and Marlena bring up how close Jennifer and Frankie used to be. Abby asks if they were that serious and Jennifer tells her that it was all innocent. Maggie remembers that Max had problems when he was young and Marlena remembers that Max didnt speak until Shawn Sr. and Caroline adopted him. Jennifer realizes that she forgot to give Jack the hamburger buns to toast and Marlena seizes the opportunity to take them out to Jack for some alone time. Jennifer promises Abby that she wont let Jack leave them ever again.
Marlena brings the buns out to Jack as he fans the smoke that is billowing up from the grill. Marlena reminds Jack that he wanted to talk to her and Jack bluntly announces that hes dying. Marlena is taken aback and then offers her condolences. Marlena notes that Jennifer doesnt seem too upset about it and Jack explains that he hasnt told Jennifer and cant tell her. Jack explains that he has a rare blood disorder that there is very little options for treatment. Jack recalls that while he hated being away from his family, at least Marlena had Roman. Marlena reiterates Romans advice to keep hanging on but Jack refuses to tell Jennifer and Abby the truth. Marlena tearfully tells Jack that he is making a mistake. Jack shows Marlena a wallet size photo of a recent family portrait and explains that he wants to keep his family as happy as they were then. Marlena urges Jack to tell Jennifer the truth but Jack doesnt want to spoil Jennifers positive outlook. Marlena points out that it will also be hard for Jennifer if Jack were to die suddenly and she wasnt prepared for it. Marlena reminds Jack that he and Jennifer chose to spend their lives together through the good and the bad times. Jack tries to rationalize his decision by suggesting he could come back as an angel but then realizes he sounds ridiculous. Marlena begins to cry as she notes that Jack merely sounds like a man who loves his family. Jack tries to end the topic by turning his attention to the burgers but Marlena steps between him and the grill. Marlena advises Jack that the longer he waits, the harder itll be to tell his family.
Marlena and Jack return with the last of the food and everyone digs in. Patrick walks through the living room on his way out but Jennifer drags him to the food and forces Jack to serve him. Abby complains that Chelsea and Max still arent back yet. Alice teases Jennifer about how she and Frankie were the same way at that age. Everyone has finished eating and Jennifer walks around collecting the trash. Alice mentions leaving room for ice cream but Jennifer tells her that shell have to settle for brownies because Chelsea and Max are not back yet. The doorbell rings and Abby jumps up to answer it, thinking it is finally Chelsea and Max. Jennifer comes up behind Abby to see who it is and happily screams when she sees that its Frankie. Patrick, scowling, watches Jennifer and Frankie hug.
Chelsea stops Max from going any farther and reties her blouse closed. Even though Max agrees to stop and they slip back into the car seats to drive to the ice cream store, he complains to Chelsea that he read her wrong thinking she wanted to have a good time. Max returns from the store with the ice cream. Chelsea wonders why she is acting like a little kid. Max makes sure there are no hard feelings about before and Chelsea wants to ask Max a personal question. Chelsea asks Max how many girlfriends hes had and Max says hes had a lot but none serious. Max asks the same question of Chelsea and Chelsea says she has her eye on one guy but he doesnt know she exists because hes older. Chelsea takes offense when Max calls her a kid, insisting that at 18, shes a woman. Max claims she was acting like a kid earlier and suggests that she was afraid. Chelsea takes offense to the suggestion and tells Max to keep driving straight until he dead ends at the lake, also known as Salems other make out spot, the Petting Zoo. Max parks at the lake and Chelsea comes on to him. Chelsea and Max passionately kiss. Max pulls away to make sure this is what Chelsea really wants. Chelsea looks Max in the eye as she unhooks his seatbelt. They continue kissing passionately.
It is Mimis sentencing day. Mimi complains that Bonnie and Mickey are there to witness her humiliation. Mimi thanks God that Rex isnt here too just as Rex walks in. Bonnie is happy to see Rex even though Mimi isnt. Rex refuses to give up on Mimi and vows to wait for her. Judge Fitzpatrick takes the bench and announces that after considering the DAs recommendations and letters from Mimis family and friends conveying her innocence, Mimi did plead guilty so she has made her decision. Judge Fitzpatrick refers to the situation as the loss of two young lives, Jan and Mimis, and everyone gasps as the judge sentences Mimi to 15-20 years in prison. Judge Fitzpatrick calls for order and Mimi faints. Mimi comes to, thinking it was all a dream until she notices the sad expressions on everyones faces. Mickey tries to convince the judge to lighten the sentence but Judge Fitzpatrick refuses to alter the sentence at all. The judge gives Mimi a chance to speak and Mimi tearfully apologizes for hurting everyone. The bailiff steps up to take Mimi away and Mickey promises to keep trying to get her out of jail. Mimi apologizes to Bonnie as she hugs her goodbye and tries to speak to Rex but the bailiff takes her away. Rex calls after her to vow that he loves her and will always love her.
Mimi has now changed into her orange jumpsuit and curses herself for already sobbing after being in jail for just five minutes. The guard closes the cell door, locking Mimi inside.
