Téa recounts the event from yesterday when Jack found Blair’s boy-toy hiding in the cabana and told Todd who subsequently threatened to burn down the cabana.

He asks again, what Markko said to her. Markko protests that he didn’t say anything to her. Mr. Rivera accuses Markko of telling his mother to divorce his father. Markko says he told him mother about school and that his father would probably never let him come home again. He says his mother said she thinks he would because she has been trying to convince him but he is stubborn. Mr. Rivera says he is not stubborn, he just knows what’s right.

Blair says she is just stashing him there until he can escort her to Todd and Téa’s wedding tonight. Dorian tells Blair she has to cut this out right now.
In the lobby of the Angel Square Motel, George tells Marty he will not talk about his family with strangers. Marty introduces herself and tells him she is a Psychiatrist. She tells him that sometimes it helps to talk to someone. He asserts that he doesn’t need a therapist; he lives by the word of God and cannot condone sinful behavior. She tells him she is not suggesting he condone anything. She is really talking about his son who needs his support right now. George says he is on the path to damnation. John tells George that his son is a hero. Marty says Oliver helped save her grandchild a few days ago and George should be nothing but proud of his son. Kyle and his boyfriend come down the stairs and kiss goodbye. George asks Marty and John if they don’t think that is an abomination. Kyle overhears the comment and asks what that was. Marty and John take that as their cue to leave. Kyle tells George he recognizes him. He asks if he is Oliver’s father and says he is Kyle. George says he knows who he is; he is the boy who corrupted his son.
At the apartment, Oliver tells his mother that he knows what his father thinks, but he isn’t sure what she thinks. She says she was raised in the church same as his father. She says they thought they raised him the same way. She tells him it is a sin. He asks her if a sin doesn’t have to be a choice. She asks him if he didn’t choose to be the way he is. He tells her that if he did, he doesn’t remember when he made it. As Barbara makes her way toward the door, she tells her son that his father will be wondering what happened to her. Oliver asks her what did happen to her after she saw him with Kyle. She says she didn’t come here to talk about that. He says he should have addressed it back then, but then she closed the door on him and he locked it. He asks her if she knows how lonely it was in that closet. He tells her he was suffocating. She tells him she thought he would grow out of it. He tells his mother that after she saw him with Kyle he broke up with him. He told him that he never wanted to see him again, that he disgusted him. He tells his mother that he loved Kyle and he gave him up for her.
In the kitchen at the Buenos Dias, Markko tells his father that he respects his beliefs, but he is in love with Langston and there is nothing sinful about that. Mr. Rivera tells Markko that his mother believes the same thing that he believes. Markko asks him why then, she is asking for a separation. Maybe she is tired of hoping he will bend. Markko asks his father to agree to disagree so they can be a family again. Mr. Rivera asks Markko if he wants him to just look away. Markko says yes. He tells his father he respects him and asks why his father can’t show him the same respect. Markko reminds his father that he taught him right from wrong. He reminds him how proud he was when Markko gave the commencement speech. Markko says he thought there was no way he could ever forget that, but his father took it away for how he loves his girlfriend. Markko tells his father that if his mother can’t live with the way things are, then Mr. Rivera is to blame. He says he has to go; he is moving in with Cole today. Mr. Rivera says he is not finished. Markko asks what else there to say. If he wants to pretend he doesn’t have a son anymore, fine. He tells him that mom has his address. If he changes his mind he should drop by, but he needs to understand in his house, his rules. Markko leaves as his father sits in a booth and watches him through the window.
At Matthew and Bo’s table nearby, Matthew asks his father if he is going to lay a guilt trip on him. David says Matthew has a point. Bo tells David to butt out. Matthew says the last thing he wants is for his parents to be upset and he is sorry that their pictures are in the papers, but he can’t allow their fear take away of his… David suggests the word courage. Bo tells David this is between him and his son. David says he is his son too. Bo says like hell he is. Bo tells Matthew that he has already lost Matthew’s brother, Drew and he will be damned if he loses him too. Mr. Rivera has overheard the conversation from the nearby booth.
Matthew concludes that this is about Drew. He says Nora had told him Bo was a mess. Bo tells his son that is not the point. Bo tells Matthew there are no words to describe how it feels to lose a child. Matthew tells Bo that he is sorry that he lost Drew but he is not going to stay in this wheelchair because of him. Bo says that is not what this is about. Matthew says he has to go and says goodbye to Bo and David as he wheels away. David suggests that Bo give Matthew some time. Bo says that don’t have time. David asks Bo if Matthew was right about Bo preferring to see Matthew in a wheelchair than take the risk of losing him like he lost Drew.
Markko arrives at the apartment he will share with Cole. Langston asks what took him so long. He tells her he had to pick up his check at the diner and his dad showed up and laid into him.

He says that if his dad wants to disown him, let him. He says Langston is his family now.

She says she and Todd are cleaning the slate. Viki wonders how they will do that with secrets hanging over her head. She tells Téa that is not a good idea. She tells her that getting things out in the open, no matter how hard that may be, is definitely the way to go.

At Buenos Dias, Bo asks David if he is asking if he would rather have his son alive or dead. He asks what kind of stupid question that is.

David tells his father that he will give him the point as he sees it from Matthew’s point of view. He tells Bo that he wants to do for Matthew what he wishes he could have done for Drew, but Matthew shouldn’t be held back for something that happened before he was born. Bo tells Davis that Matthew has no idea what he is gambling with or what it is like to lose a son or what that does to a man. He tells David that not a day goes by that he doesn’t wish that Drew were still here, but he is not and Bo has to live with that. David says he is sorry. Bo tells David that Drew wanted to be a cop because Bo is a cop, and Bo thought he could protect him but he couldn’t and he is not going to make that mistake again.
