Starr tells her that he doesn’t have to; her aunt Viki will let him stay with her. Langston reminds Starr that Markko is not used to being waited on and having Téa in the morning with rich people. Markko just feels as though he’s getting in the way when Viki and Charlie are about to get married.
At Viki’s, while Natalie and Jessica are rushing to get the plans ready for the wedding, Markko tells them that he can help them. He’s obviously uncomfortable just sitting around. He will run some errands. He goes out the door.
Nora goes to see Rachel and admits that everything is going wrong. First, the clasp on her necklace broke, she is running late; so many things are happening. Rachel tells her mother she can relax and get ready for her wedding. Nora adds that is IF there’s going to be a wedding. Hearing that, Rachel asks her mother what she is talking about. Nora then replies to her daughter that she may ask her brother.
Matthew goes outside Clint’s door. Bo appears and asks his son if he plans to rat his father out to his uncle. If that’s what he wants to do, go ahead.
At Viki’s, Jessica and Natalie are happily with Bree. The young girl bounces a ball that falls out of her hand. When she runs outside after it, it appears that somebody is standing there to give her back her ball. When she runs back in Jessica then tells her daughter that she needs to stay inside.

Langston informs Starr that Markko’s’ father is not budging. He packed up a bunch of his stuff and dropped it at Viki’s for Markko. Starr asks Langston how he could do that; Markko is the perfect son. Langston explains that his parents believe he’s committed a sin by having sex outside of marriage and they see her as the girl who ruined their son. Starr tells her that they will have to get over that -- sex happens. As long as they are responsible, then they should not be judged. She does admit to Langston that she and Cole are having sex again,

Asher tells him that he thought that his baby died, but Cole tells him no, they found out that she is alive. He has a baby daughter named Hope, but Asher wonders why Cole needs to deal drugs. Can’t his mom help him?
At the station, Brody tells John that he has been attending the police academy after getting accepted and now John has booted him. He assumes it must be because John believes that he could not make it as a cop. John tells him no, he has looked at all of Brody’s records and believes he’d be an excellent cop the reason he wants Brody to get out of the academy is because he needs his help with a very important case.
After Nora indicates to Rachel that Matthew might prevent her from marrying Clint, Rachel asks her mother what is up with that. Nora replies that her son came to her and Bo and told them he would drop the lawsuit if they would consent to the surgery. Rachel asks what he told her he’d do if she did not consent. Nora replies that Matthew told her he would go and inform Clint that he saw his mother and Bo kissing. Rachel tells her mother that Clint would never believe a lie like that, but Nora admits that it’s not a lie.
Outside Clint’s door, Bo asks his son what he’s waiting for. Matthew asks his father if he really wants him to tell Uncle Clint what he saw last night. Bo tells Matthew he may do what he needs to do. Matthew reminds his father that he did not answer his question. Bo tells his son that he did not think that Matthew wanted an answer. He knows that it’s all about Matthew. It has nothing to do with his father or mother or uncle. Matthew might want to think of what could happen if he goes and shoots off his mouth about something he thought he saw and then somebody gets hurt, but Matthew affirms that he knows what he saw. Right then, Clint opens his door and asks his brother and nephew if they need something from him. Bo tells his brother that Matthew has something to tell him. Clint tells his nephew he has wedding to get to so Matthew needs to spit it out.
Outside Viki’s home, Markko notices that his mother has something to give him. She admits that she has some money for him and some to give to Mrs. Davidson. She has some food for him, as she’s worried that he looks so thin. He admits that he’s disappointed that she won’t tell him he can come home.

Asher tells Cole he does not care.
At the station, John tells Brody that he is taking a big risk trusting him and needs Brody to tell him if he can be trusted. He realizes that he has not told Brody what the job he has for him is.

Rachel asks her mother how she felt about that.
Cole tells Asher that he needs some serious cash, but Asher tells Cole he does not buy that and knows that he will end up in jail.
John tells Brody that he wants him to go undercover. Brody must have everybody who asks believing that he got rejected from the police academy, but he, John and Bo know the truth. Brody asks John what his cover will be. John replies that he will call him and Brody may call him from Rodi’s.

He knows that his parents will never respect his wishes, but it doesn’t matter because he will beat them in court. Regarding what his father said about hurting somebody, he could never hurt Uncle Clint. Clint has been nothing but nice to him. He thinks he owes Clint a heads up on what is happening and he believes that Bo and Nora are hurting Clint.
Nora admits to Rachel that Matthew threatened to go to Clint. She has no control over whether he does that. What is she supposed to do, ask him to lie for her and Bo? Succumb to his blackmail, hope and pray to God that he does not die on the operating table? Rachel then asks if it’s better to tell the truth, then why doesn’t she just tell Clint herself. She tells Nora that maybe by having Matthew doing it, and then she will look like a liar and a cheater and give Clint good reason to call off the wedding. Is that what Nora wants?

Noelle laughs and tells her no wonder she ran off to Paris, TX to pour coffee for a living.
After Rachel challenges Nora by telling her that she may have an underlying need to get Clint to call off the wedding, Nora tells her daughter she cannot deal with this right now. Rachel apologizes for grilling her mother, but she asks her if she really has unfinished business. Nora gets a call from Bo who informs her of the verdict where Matthew had his chance to tell Clint everything but chose not to. He then tells her he has to go. Clint enters and knows that Bo has something on his mind. He asks what is up. Bo lies to his brother that there was something going on at the station. Clint tells Bo that he thinks it’s good that Matthew wants Clint to take good care of his mom. Matthew has nothing to worry about. He adores Nora; everything about her, even the things that drive him nuts, even the fact that he knows that Nora still loves Bo… similarly to the fact that Clint still loves Viki. He tells Bo he could not marry anybody who did not love his brother.
After Nora gets off the phone and informs Rachel that Bo informed her that Matthew didn’t give Clint a reason to call off the wedding, Rachel asks her mother if she wants Clint to do that.

Markko goes to see Langston and tells her he’s not ok, because his mom showed up with only money and food but no word that he can come home. She won’t fight his old man. Langston holds him, kisses him, and tells him if he wants to feel better, he came to the right place. In the other room, Starr observes the photo on her cell phone of her, Cole and baby Hope.
Cole tells Asher taking the pill will only prove that he will use his supply. He gets up to escort Asher out, telling him it’s not worth it; he will find another supplier. He says he can make enough money without Asher’s help. He knows many people in prison who will come to him and he can live high, but he was hoping that maybe he could cut Asher in and help him to make some money too. At that point, Asher asks him to hold on. Cole tells Asher how he can find many people getting out of rehab who may think they want to use but who will be bringing them a lot of business. With a little push, he can help Asher to find them and make a lot of money if Asher can cut him in on the supply.
