Jack wants to know why Jamal doesn't just use the tape he made of Zach to get out of the race. But Jamal figures that if he races that will release the hold that Zach has on Alison for the money and once he knows that they have something on him then Zach will back off.

Jamal will tell Alison what really has gone on after the race and everything is cool. Just then Amanda arrives. Jamal is surprised she is out of the hospital already.

He tell Kevin that he bought a computer and once it was hooked up he started communicating to a girl named Cookie who was living in 1973.

He doesn't think that Kevin believes him but Kevin says that Frank believes it and that is what is important. He asks Frank to tell him more about Karen. Frank starts talking about Karen and Kevin asks him to describe her as he draws her. Frank thinks back to times with Karen as he is describing what Karen looks like and how they bought the computer together and how it brought them closer together, and how much he missed her when she went away.

Joe, Chris, Ian and Eve are still working on Rhonda. Eve is looking a little queasy and Chris sends her off to get the Rhonda's test results. She walks out and pauses to settle herself.

Colleen says she is going to ask Rhonda if they can run some donor test and as Ian walks over Eve realizes that Rhonda could be a match for Arianna.
Jamal is trying to stall Alison from going into the bike shop using her health and Alison's work as excuses but she stands firm and goes inside. Alison is happy to see that Amanda is out of the hospital They tell each other that they have missed each other. Amanda looks around and says that Alison has done wonders with the place and how it doesn't even smell like a bike shop. Livvie says that is because of Alison's cooking. Alison couldn't have done it without her grandmothers help though and starts to thank her as Jack interrupts offering to drive Amanda home since she looks so tired. Livvie pulls him back and shoot him a what are you doing look and tells him to chill. Amanda is proud of Alison and what she has accomplished on her own. Alison thinks the money came from her, but Amanda would never put money in a post office box and she took it very seriously when Alison asked her not to interfere.
Frank thinks that Kevin remembers Karen because he drew her perfectly but Kevin says no one has ever heard of Karen except for Frank.
Ian tells Eve that Rhonda has given her permission for the donor tests it is just a matter of waiting to see the results. He asks if she is OK since it looked like she was going to pass out earlier. She brushes it off as nothing but being over worked. Colleen comes back with the test results and they see that she is a near perfect match for Arianna having 7 out of the 10 markers matching. Then Eve realizes that Rhonda is a heavy drinker and Ian sends Colleen to run a test for liver enzymes. Eve thinks that Rhonda may be the answer to their prayers "for Arianna". Ian says "And for us"..
