Johnny notices Connie coming back and she tells him that she has a serious secret that Kate cannot handle so Kate is not coming back.
Lulu informs Maxie on the phone that Patrick is at the Haunted Star because he forgot something and she need not come back. She hangs up and Patrick thanks her lying for him. She tells him she did not do that for him. She did that for Maxie and asks him if she does not have a reason to be concerned. She tells him that she can see that his usage of the drugs is way out of proportion and he needs to realize he has a problem.
Todd reminds Blair that he thought he was the only guy she fell in love with even though the only reason she married him was because he was rich. She tells him the reason she did not tell him about Tomas before Starrs performance was because she wanted it to be about their daughter tonight. Starr does not know and is not keeping a secret for her mom. She tells Todd she did not know how he would react. He tells her she needs to stop. He tells Blair she was not concerned about anyones feelings or trying to protect anybody except herself.
Starr and Michael talk alone in the bar about their respective parents moving in regarding his mom with Johnny and his dad with Kate although he hesitates realizing that Starr may not want to think about the woman responsible for killing her daughter and fiancé. But she assures him she does not judge Kate and knows all too well that Kate has a sickness she cannot help unlike her aunt Viki and cousin Jessica.
Connie has come out and confirms to Johnny she happens to know that neither she nor Kate shot out Anthonys tires. He tells her he wants her out of there. She tells him she knows that he put her up to confessing to something she did not do. She knows shes not crazy to know this much no matter what he says. She knows that it was he who killed that little kid and her dad. But hes questioning whether she might still be Kate and might be wired by the cops to get him to confess to the crime. But she protests that he needs to know if shes not Kate. If she was, Kate would turn his ass in to the cops without a wire but shes not going to do that and he needs to trust her.
Anna goes into the woods to the cabin and sees the fire. She calls for Luke but the fire is getting out of control.
Connie tells Johnny that she knows he killed Starr mannings daughter and fiancé. He may believe that she is unaware but she knows the truth. The whole reason shes come out is that Kate is overcome with guilty believing shes done this. So shes not going to call the cops on him since his behavior of having Kate believing shes done it is the very reason Kate is not coming back. He doesnt want to listen to her but she urges him to know that he needs to talk to her instead of to someone with no incentive to keep their mouths shut. He asks her if this is all a game to her but declares ok. He will admit that he is in fact guilty.
Starr tells Michael he need not worry how she feels about Kate. It need not be a problem for them as long as he promises that they will not be double-dating with his dad and Kate. He tells her he promises. She tells him she realizes she will have to deal with seeing Kate and knows he helped her get through this. They talk about going forward with dating.
Connie asks Johnny if he did not say that admitting to what he did is his first step toward healing. He admits that he found out that hes not like the bastard believed his whole life was his father.

Lulu tells Patrick she knows all too well where he is going although he protests that he is not an addict. He is hiding and stealing pills yet tells her hes fine. If that is true, she tells him, then he will confirm to her that he does not need the pills shes holding in her hands and wont care if she throws them in the river.
