She is beginning to fight. Robin promises to be good and not try to escape. She will take her medication. The nurse refuses Robin. She is going to get the treatment because she can’t be trusted.

Johnny thinks Kate will never remember.
Todd compliments Kate on how good she looks now that she is sane and intergraded. Kate wants to talk about getting her magazine back. Todd has suspended publication of Crimson, and doesn’t plan on bringing it back. Kate tells Todd Crimson is her life. Todd just thinks it is a superficial publication about dressing up. Todd would rather talk about Connie and Johnny two timing Carly.

Heather can’t believe just yesterday Anna was calling her a bitch and now she wants her help. Anna still thinks Heather is crazy. She lists all the crimes she has committed ending with Olivia. Heather thinks Olivia will be just fine. Heather herself had a massive dose of LSD, and she is just fine.
Lulu reminds Patrick he has friends that will help him recover. He thinks if anyone finds out, he career is over. Lulu thinks if he doesn’t get professional help he won’t have a career either. Patrick doesn’t think Lulu should consider herself an authority on drug addiction just because she has had family members who have suffered.

Robin is still struggling to find out who is behind her kidnapping. The nurse tells her to relax.
Johnny and Anthony continue to go back and forth on Connie keeping her mouth shut. Johnny thinks she has just as much incentive to keep their secret as he does. Anthony is less confident.

How long before she does something Johnny can’t cover up. Anthony sees Johnny having three options. Tell the truth, kill Connie, or run.
Kate doesn’t want to discuss her past with Todd. Whatever Connie and Johnny did is none of Todd’s business. She only wants to discuss getting her magazine back. Todd wonders what is in it for him if he gives it to her. He thinks the last thing the world needs is another magazine. Kate informs Todd she could evict him. He reminds Kate that her business partner Carly has approved everything he did. He begins to walk away from her when she asks would he feel differently if her request came from Sonny. Todd immediately turns and asks if Kate is threatening him. Todd wonders if he is talking to Kate or Connie. Threatening him with her mobster boyfriend sounds more like something Connie would do.
Liz tries to sympathize being stuck with Heather as a mother. Steve doesn’t feel as though Heather is his mother. His mother is the woman who raised himself, Liz, and Sarah. Steve is beating himself up for ever trusting Heather again. She has used him from the very start and this time was no different. Liz understands his need to try and have a relationship with Heather.

Lulu wants to go find Ewen. Patrick remembers how he and Robin used to sneak off to be together in closets of the hospital. He remembers the time Epiphany caught them and how embarrassed Robin was.

Dante tells Steve to stop blaming himself and focus on Olivia. Dante tells Steve Ewen thinks she will be alright. Steve hopes Liz is right in her confidence of Ewen.
Ewen doesn’t want to put Liz on the spot, but the next move is up to her. Lulu interrupts and pulls Ewen away.
