Nora reads the delivered letter and says aloud, “Oh my god, Troy,” while Troy tells Lindsay that she’s beautiful and talented and could have her own life. She says that Nora deserves to know the truth and that she wants to help him deal with his past. She goads him about the certified letter she sent to Nora and agrees with Troy when he calls her on just wanting to see Nora suffer. Troy wants Lindsay to tell Nora she made it all up and then suggests she won’t even believe the letter. He pushes her up against the wall saying he has nothing left to lose but Emily arrives and makes him stop. Lindsay assures him its over and then leaves. Troy fills Emily in on the letter. Emily suggests if Nora got it then maybe it’s not such a bad thing. He heads out to find Nora but she appears at his house with letter in hand.
Emily leaves and Nora tells him about her delivery. The letter says that D.B. Norris wishes to donate half a million to the clinic. He says “I can’t believe her” and she says it’s not about her but him, because he’s trying to buy back his reputation. She adds that the clinic doesn’t need the money but that if even it did she wouldn’t handle the transaction. He says he doesn’t even want the money and all is suddenly fine between the two. He offers to take her away to no distractions but she needs to attend to Sam. She apologizes for coming in so angry over a letter in which a man who murdered his wife offers the clinic money, adding that she knows Troy would never want that kind of blood on his hands. He rips up and throws the letter then trashes his home. Emily hears it and comes in. Troy informs her that Lindsay didn’t tell Nora yet and is still playing games. Emily tells him to tell Nora once and for all but he insists she wouldn’t forgive him and would never understand. He says that even Emily doesn’t even know what really happened. She begs him to tell her and he agrees to tell her everything.
Nora fins Sam and apologizes about Jen. He says that she’ll be okay but judging from the look on his face she’s not convinced. Then Todd comes in because he forgot Jacks’s stuffed animal and makes a comment in their direction about how the penthouse will be great but even better for Jack if he has his stuffed animal, Chuckles. He tells a confused Nora that he now has custody of the kids and when Nora asks about Blair being crazy enough to give him custody, Todd can’t help but give special attention to the wording of the question. Sam warns him repeatedly to shut up and when he doesn’t, Sam punches him.
