But Jamal has a plan, he is thinking of going to the cops. Jack doesn't think the cops will be able to help as most of them are as dumb as a bag of hammers, just as one walks in.

She wants to know what is going on and why he doesn't want to be with her anymore.
Frank tells Karen that it is all too unreal. She ask "that I love you?" He meant because he screwed up. She teases him about being perfect. The joke around and then she tells him that she has to go to the hospital. He wants her to stay but she tells him she is going to be Arianna's donor. She is still afraid but he made her see that with him by her side she can do it. She can fight anything because she has something to fight for. He thinks she is amazing for taking this risk for Arianna, but she says it is for Eve and Ian too. She thanks him for being there for her. And they apologize to each other for the night before. She teases him about talking computers but he says he has been talking to 1973 and he has proof.

Franks tells Karen about his evidence: the note and the name carved in the wall at Kelly's that he had Victor test. Karen wants to know if he is actually talking to someone in the past shouldn't he be afraid of saying something or doing something that may alter the future. He should be careful but he thinks that he is meant to save Cookie from making a big mistake. He tells her to get dressed and call Eve. He will then take her to Kelly's and she her the note and carving and make her believe and if she doesn't believe him she can have him committed. She says the only commitment she wants is from him he tells her that she has got that. They kiss and she tells him to go and he doesn't want to leave.

He walks out to the front of the shop and meets Jamal who tells him everything is all set he is wearing the wire and is going to set up a meeting with Zach. Inside Livvie asks Alison what is the matter she says nothing but that is the problem. Every time things are going good this way something happens. back outside Jamal says everything is all set for that evening.

She says that she is going to go anyway and that she knows how to get boys to like her she will give him what he wants. She says those types of girls are the popular ones. He thinks this is how he can help her!
Jamal goes down to the docks and yells for Zach. Zach is hiding behind some crates watching him.
Chris asks to speak to Eve alone. But she tells him that he can tell Ian. "Tell him I am a match and I am going to be Arianna's donor." But Chris says sorry but you're not a match.
Karen is ready to go when her mom is at the door. She was on her way to a meeting but she found herself heading to Karen's instead. Karen wants to know if she is OK but all Rhonda has been thinking about is her sister Carolyn and her accident. Karen tells her that is wasn't her fault that her sister died. Rhonda says she knows but she wishes she hadn't stood Carolyn up that night when she was supposed to meet her. Karen reminds her she is always saying you cant live with regrets you make your choices and you stick with them. Rhonda says she know but she has made some bad choices. Karen says they weren't all bad but it must have been hard being a teenaged mom and hardly knowing Scott. But Rhonda says she never regretted having her and doesn't know what she would have done without her as they hug.
Frank is trying to talk Cookie into staying home from the dance. As Karen and Rhonda are looking through boxes of Carolyn's things. Karen pulls out a picture and asks who it is.
