Park:

Ciara is having her birthday party in the park. Hope, Bo, and Caroline watch as Ciara opens her presents. Caroline gives Ciara a pink princess dress. Nathan walks up with present in hand and apologizes for being late. Nathan hugs Hope and then greets Ciara. Nathan suggests that he and Ciara go check out the bouncy house and Caroline walks over to join them. Bo wraps his arms around Hope as they admit that Caroline’s idea of a party in the park turned out really nice. Bo jokingly suggests that they try out the bouncy house on their own later and Hope tells him they might, if he’s lucky. As they admire Ciara’s new dress up costume, a strange man watches them from the bushes holding a picture of Ciara.

Cabin:

Unbeknownst to Philip and Stephanie, Melanie watches through the window as Philip and Stephanie admit that they still love each other. Melanie congratulates herself on a job well done and urges Philip and Stephanie to kiss. Brady sneaks up behind Melanie and asks what she is up to. Melanie jumps. Philip tells Stephanie that she can’t really say it’s over if she still loves him.

Java café:

Kate is sitting at a table when Christopher comes rushing in. Christopher apologizes for being late and starts to explain about the traffic but Kate doesn’t want to hear it. Christopher sits down across from Kate and she shows him the footage from the shoot on a mini DVD player. Kate is annoyed that Chloe and Daniel come off so bad on tape but Christopher can’t see how bad Kate claims it is. Kate suggests that this is why Daniel chose to quit the show. Christopher suggests that Daniel quit because of Chloe. Kate pretends to just be passing along gossip as she tells Christopher her ‘theory’ that Daniel had a thing for Chloe. Chris asks what Kate thinks happened between them and Kate quips that a lot more went down between them than just the healthy treats they were showcasing on the shoot.

Hospital:

Daniel tries to leave his letter of resignation with the head nurse, Maxine, to give to Lexie. Maxine refuses to take it, voicing her disagreement with Daniel’s decision to leave the hospital. Maxine tells Daniel to give it to Lexie himself so that she can try to talk him out of leaving. Daniel is reluctant until Maxine repeatedly points out that Lexie is working in the nearby patient’s room.

Lexie asks Chloe if something happened between her and Daniel. Chloe, sounding out of breath, demands that Daniel be kept away from her. Lexie asks if that still applies when Daniel is the best diagnostician they’ve got and could be the only one to find out how to save her. Chloe sticks to her desires and falls back asleep.

Cabin:

Melanie tries to get Brady’s focus off of her by making small talk about the weather. Melanie swaps places with Brady, forcing him to put his back to the window to look at her. Brady explains that he came back get his watch and can tell that Melanie’s claims of coming just to get some sun are lies. Brady turns to look into the window and accuses Melanie of trying to push Stephanie and Philip back together. Melanie tries to deny it at first but then admits it. Melanie now tells Brady to watch them through the window to see that her efforts are working.

Philip begs Stephanie to get back together. Stephanie refuses, saying that there are several reasons why they can’t. Philip says he doesn’t want to hear any of them and kisses Stephanie.

Park:

Abe brings Theo to Ciara’s birthday party. Caroline greets them and compliments Theo’s new hat, though Theo doesn’t even look at her. Hope comes by carrying a tray of cupcakes and offers one to Theo. Theo takes one off the tray. Hope offers a cupcake to Abe but he passes. Hope offers Abe to help himself from the drinks at the table. Hope turns to go back to the other guests but Abe calls her back to thank her again for the donation. Hope complains that it was supposed to stay anonymous but Caroline believes Hope should be recognized for it. Bo walks up and lifts Theo in greeting. Caroline laments that Lexie couldn’t be here as well. Abe suggests to Theo that they bring Lexie home a cupcake. Caroline suggests that she and Theo go see Ciara. Hope helps herself to a cupcake and leads Theo and Caroline away to finish passing out the cupcakes to everyone else. Bo and Abe joke about how Ciara and Theo talk about each other all the time and how Theo had to pick out the perfect present for Ciara. Bo takes the present and tosses it down onto the blanket. Abe asks how Bo is doing and Bo comments on the new job. Abe explains that he was really asking about Bo and Hope’s relationship. Bo doesn’t understand why Abe would be asking until Abe reminds him of the vision Bo had of Hope in bed with Roman. Bo tells Abe that his vision was a false alarm. Abe asks if this means Bo’s visions aren’t happening anymore but Bo admits that he’s still having them.

Java café:

Kate feels that their viewers will be too smart not to notice something going on between the two Chloe and Daniel on screen. Kate claims to be relieved that Daniel is quitting for she didn’t want to have to fire him. Chris jokes that Kate has too soft a heart to fire anyone. Chris is amazed that Kate would care so much for her daughter in law. Kate rolls her eyes and sighs when Chris refers to her as Chloe’s guardian angel.

Lexie steps away. Daniel stares at Chloe’s room for a moment and then turns back to hand Lexie his letter of resignation. Lexie wants to know why Daniel is leaving. Lexie asks if it means Daniel is feeling under appreciated. Daniel insists that he’s doing it for a clean break and a change personally and professionally. Lexie remembers Chloe’s determination to keep Daniel away from her. Lexie asks Daniel if he wants to leave because of one of his patients.

Chloe fantasizes about making love with Daniel. Chloe then reminds herself that she made a promise to God to love Lucas and tries to force herself to stop thinking about Daniel.

Park:

Everyone else is off enjoying the party. Bo and Abe sit down on a bench to talk about his visions. Bo tells Abe about his vision of Zack warning that Ciara never lose her Tommy Bear.

Stephanie asks Melanie when the next ferry is coming but Melanie suggests they stick around and work on their tans. Stephanie makes Melanie admit that she didn’t ask Stephanie to come up for that. Melanie refuses to apologize because Stephanie and Philip love each other. Stephanie agrees but feels that love is not enough this time.

Maggie’s house:

Maggie desperately demands answers from Chris about Daniel and Chloe. Before Chris can answer, Kate interrupts to say that Daniel asked to be let out of his contract and they obliged. Maggie seems surprised and confused but accepts the answer. Kate mentions a need to deal with the phone call she’d just received and asks Jed to give her a lift so they can talk on the way. Kate and Jed leave. Maggie grills Chris for the truth of why Daniel wants to leave the show. Chris is hesitant to answer and tries to change the subject by complimenting Maggie’s earrings. Maggie demands an answer.

Hospital:

Daniel asks why Lexie would ask if his resignation had anything to do with a patient. Lexie warns that she needs to be aware of any situation that could cause liability to the hospital. Daniel becomes defensive and thinks Lexie is accusing him of something. Lexie claims she isn’t accusing Daniel of anything. Daniel swears that his decision was his alone and not due to any extenuating circumstances. Lexie asks if she can change Daniel’s mind but he says she can’t. Daniel walks away. Lexie takes the resignation into Chloe’s room, where she lays sleeping, and asks what it has to do with her.

Cabin:

Stephanie tears up as she tells Melanie about attending romantic comedy themed movies each week with her mom growing up. Melanie wishes that real life ended up like those movies where the guy gets the girl and everyone’s happy. Stephanie adds that the movies don’t show how incompatible a couple can be if they don’t share the same values.

Brady tells Philip that he is being insane because he keeps doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Philip will only repeat that he can’t lose Stephanie.

Maggie’s house:

Chris is hesitant to tell Maggie anything for fear of what Kate will do to him. Maggie insists that she should know because Chloe is family.
