He begins to realize that Babe set the entire scene up. He asks her to confirm his suspicions but Babe doesn't give him a direct answer. Instead, Babe propositions him to join her in bed. He doesn't take her up on the offer. He's determined to have his question answered. He gets it when Babe in near desperation reminds JR that he has to give Jamie his inheritance.

She justifies her lies to everyone by telling Del that she is giving Dixie's family what they desperately need and want. Del is certain that Dixie would never condone such an awful deception. He confronts Di about the kiss he witnessed between her and Tad, pointing out that Tad thought he was kissing Dixie. Di denies it. She insists that Tad was kissing her. Del switches his line of questioning and asks her how long she had been planning passing herself off as Dixie. He wonders if it was since she donated one of her kidneys after Dixie's had failed. Di denies it but Del doesn't believe her as he recalls the long hours they spent during that time talking about all the details of Dixie's life. Di reminds Del that she was in prison, so she was hardly in a position to plot such a devious plan. She suggests that Del stay in town for a while and observe how she and Dixie's family are interacting. Del doesn't give her an answer as he walks out the door.
Brooke and Tad discuss Jamie and Babe's wedding plans. Brooke feels like it's a huge mistake for them to get married and tries to convince Tad to talk to Jamie.

She senses Dixie's influence and worries that it indicates that Tad and Dixie are back together. Tad immediately denies that he and Dixie have reconciled. He admits that they did kiss but that there weren't any sparks or the warm and fuzzies. Brooke isn't completely convinced. She worries that, given their history together, Tad may not survive another breakup. He tries to reassure her and directs the discussion away from him and onto Del.

A few minutes later, Tad decides to confront Del whom he finds on his doorstep when Tad opens his door.

Zach warns Kendall that if she helps Greenlee have Ryan's baby she would be making a huge mistake. Kendall disagrees but denies that she's actively trying to help Greenlee have a baby. Zach calls her bluff, telling her that because he knew she was keeping a secret he had his men follow Kendall. They reported that she was seen going to the clinic with Greenlee. There's only one reason she would be there and that is to support Greenlee's decision to be inseminated again. Zach suggests that the reason that Kendall is so determined to help Greenlee is because she is acting out of guilt for not being able to stop Ryan from killing himself. Kendall counters that the reason Zach is helping Julia is because he feels guilty for driving Maria away. Unfortunately as Kendall is talking, she says something that baffles Zach until he realizes that it could indicate that Kendall is the one who will be inseminated with Ryan's baby.

Babe shows up at David's cabin, and informs him that if he doesn't give up the information he has on Dixie, she will be out of his life forever. Sidestepping her request, David notes that he knows about her plan to get Jamie out of her life and into med school. Babe fills him in on the brief version: Jamie dumped her, she moved out to the Pine Cone, and now Jamie can go to school. David fumes for a moment, proclaiming Jamie's idiocy for not knowing how good he had it. Babe gets her father back on track and asks once again for the secrets he holds. David asks if she plans on exacting revenge if she finds out the secret. She admits that revenge would be a bonus, but that her real goal is to get her son back. David tells her there is no way he will let her go up against JR on her own. Done with his games, Babe renounces him as her father, and demands that he stay out of her life for good.
Tad shows up at the Chandler mansion to pick Di up for their date. As they kiss hello, JR emerges from the house, and seeing them, calls them out as liars. JR is astounded that after all of the misfires of their previous relationships, they would even consider getting back together. Di starts to tell her son that she is simply going to lunch with Tad, but Tad clarifies and says that they are just trying to see where they could go with a new relationship. JR, believing he knows all, tells them that the same thing will happen - Tad will destroy his mother's world. He demands that Tad spare her the heartache and just leave, but Tad informs JR that he can't control anyone's life, no matter how badly he may want to. At that, Jamie joins them on the patio and notes aloud that JR's control definitely doesn't extend to his life. JR tries to administer a low blow, thinking that Babe coaxed Jamie back into her life by turning on the waterworks, but Jamie coldly denies any such thing. Tad, knowing that he missed something major, asks to be filled in. Jamie tells him that he is about to have a very rich son - who will soon be re-enrolled in college. Di initially thinks that JR finally took the high road and gave up his vendetta, but Jamie quickly tells her not to give JR that much credit. He then confirms that he had broken up with Babe, and that the wedding is off. Di accuses JR of pushing his brother to extremes, but Jamie breaks in once again and tells them that it was 100% his decision to break things off...with a bit of influence thrown in from the former bride-to-be.
Jamie sits outside with his father and Di, and listens to them commiserate regarding the end of his relationship. He assures them that he is okay with how things are, and that he isn't blaming JR for the demise. Just then, JR rejoins them, with a lawyer in tow. He informs the trio that the lawyer has all of the paperwork necessary to transfer Phoebe's estate to Jamie, and that he wants his mother and ex-stepfather to bear witness. Jamie insists that after all is said and done, he expects JR to call up all the colleges so that Jamie has a chance of being admitted. He also wants JR to stop harassing his grandfather, and stop blocking his opportunity to take Dr. Joe up on his job offer - if it still exists. Then, the lawyer notes that before they can commence with signing the legal documents, he has to ask JR some questions to make sure that Jamie has met all of the conditions of the will. JR hesitates before answering and Di chastises him for doing so. Jamie steps up and confirms that things are over with Babe. Just then, they all notice Babe standing by the outside entrance to the patio. After a moment of uncomfortable silence, Babe announces that it's her day with little Adam. JR tries to slide in some barbs, but Jamie remains stone faced, and soon Babe disappears into the house. As they prepare to have the paperwork signed, Tad pulls his son to the side and asks if this is really what he wants. Jamie notes that he now has his life and his desired career back on track - and that he plans to make the best of it. JR then notes aloud that all of the money should be transferred to Jamie's account, and Jamie reminds him to take care of removing his name from the blacklist at colleges. JR notes that it will be done, and then tells the man he now freely refers to as "brother" that he has been where Jamie is. He offers support to Jamie, should he need help dealing with the aftermath of the breakup. Jamie cuts him down to size by telling him that while JR may have finally handed him his dreams, he did so after he sliced Jamie open and tried to bleed him dry. He tells his brother that he has control of nothing, and that if it weren't for Little Adam, JR would have no worth in this world. He notes that after the transaction is completed, he never wants to see JR again. JR takes this all in, somewhat hurt, but quickly covers it up when he sees his mother and Tad looking at him.
A short time later, Babe returns to the patio with her son in her arms. She asks Tad and Di, who are seated out there, if JR is still around, but they tell her the coast is clear. She then asks if all is said and done, with the transfer of money and Jamie's way to medical school paved. They confirm as much, and then commend her for whatever she did, whatever sacrifices she made, to make this a reality. Tempted to come clean, she pauses for a moment, and then decides against it - instead telling them that she made a horrible mistake and that Jamie left her for it. Trying to move on to happier things, she sits with her son and makes plans for what to do with their time together. When she does, Tad pulls Di aside and asks if they can make their date for dinner instead. She asks, and he confirms that he is going to track down Jamie - with the state he is in, Tad believes his son is in no condition to be alone.
At Greenlee's apartment, Erica continues to badmouth and badger Dr. Madden, assuming that he is getting Greenlee hooked on illegal drugs in the aftermath of her miscarriage. Greenlee, fed up with Erica's meddling and assumptions, tries to make her understand that it really is none of her business. Unmoved, Erica declares that Greenlee loses all rights to privacy when she does something that will destroy her life. Erica demands one more time to know what is in the syringe, and Greenlee blurts out that the needle holds her last chance to have Ryan's baby. Erica is confused, as it was Dr. Madden that said Greenlee would never be able to carry a child to full term. Conflicted as to what to do, Greenlee finally decides that she will reveal the truth. However, before she has the chance, Greg tells Erica that he has been working on an experimental drug that could help correct the autoimmune reaction that Greenlee and women like her experience. He assures Erica that he has gotten approval from the FDA to proceed with trials, but Erica is horrified that Greg would take advantage of Greenlee like that. Greenlee pipes up and says that she volunteered, but Erica believes she only did so because she was distraught over the loss of her husband and her child. Greg continues, and says that Greenlee will come to no harm while involved in the study. Erica questions why, if the trial and study is above board and legal, Greg would be treating Greenlee on the sly. Greenlee tells her that she made the decision to keep it secret - because it doesn't take much for her family, especially her father, to launch into another tirade about how horrible it would be if she had Ryan's baby. Erica assures Greenlee that her father loves her, and only wants what is best for her - but Greenlee notes that this decision has been good for her. She knows that Erica has seen it, because she made a verbal observation about how well Greenlee seemed to be doing after the fact. They seem to be at an impasse, when Greg breaks in and demands that Erica put an end to her false accusations. He demands that she return the syringe to him at once so that they might proceed with the trials. Surprisingly, Erica gives up the needle without a fight and notes that Greg should understand firsthand the need to protect your child. She wishes them both luck with the endeavor and takes her leave. Once they are alone, Greenlee takes the opportunity to try to justify Erica's behavior, and then apologize all the same. Greg, still steaming, tells her that he won't have Erica, or anyone, compromising his research or his reputation. Greenlee doesn't see how he could, since he didn't do anything wrong. The look that shows on his face causes her to ask whether he did anything unbecoming that she is unaware of. Immediately on the defensive, Greg runs down the list of things that he has done for Greenlee since she broke into his clinic, and then notes how upsetting it is that she is still questioning him. He goes to storm out, but Greenlee begs him not to bail on her now. She apologizes, saying that Erica's appearance threw her off, and insists that she is fine now. She knows that he is her last hope for raising Ryan's child. Reluctantly, Greg agrees to stay on the case, and help her and Kendall bring Ryan's child into the world. Relieved, Greenlee then timidly asks if there really is an experimental drug that could help change the course of her life with regard to her autoimmune problem. Greg regrettably tells her that the story was a pure work of fiction, told only to get Erica off the trail. Although slightly saddened that she definitely can't carry Ryan's child, she is still pleased that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As she walks him to the door, Dr. Madden reviews the steps they will be taking over the next few weeks, including the beginning of hormone shots for Kendall, harvesting of Greenlee's eggs, fertilization and implantation.
Ryan shows up again at Erin's place, much to her dismay. She was hoping he had left town, but he reiterates that he won't ever leave them again. Ryan starts to make a beeline for their brother, but Erin tells him that Jonathan had a bad night filled with nightmares - and that it might be best if he was left to sleep some more. Ryan only briefly considers this before resuming his path to the closet. He opens the door, and he and Erin see Jonathan playing with toy cars on the floor. He then spots Ryan and jumps up excitedly at his return. He tells his big brother that he picked the best day to come back - Jonathan's 10th birthday! His glee soon turns to sadness and shame, as he apologizes to Ryan for not being as strong and brave as Ryan asked him to be. Ryan assures his little brother that he isn't angry - he's proud because he survived, and their father is gone. Jonathan is reluctant to believe them, but Ryan and Erin confirm that truth. Just as Jonathan dares to hope, a car pulls up to the house, and Jonathan panics, thinking that Patrick has returned home from work. He begs Ryan to take him away and save him. Erin goes out to check, and when she returns, she tells Jonathan that the car they heard was the mailman. Ryan then tells a visibly calmer Jonathan that he is safe now - but Jonathan isn't so sure. Erin reminds him that he told her that he was happy with her taking care of him, in the cabin. Sheepishly, Jonathan tells Erin that he loves her, but he needs Ryan. Ryan then looks Hockett directly in the eye and tells him that he couldn't save him before - but he can save him now. Excited, Jonathan asks what their next move is. Ryan promises Jonathan a ride on his motorcycle. Initially thrilled, Jonathan is then a little deflated because he lost the motorcycle gloves that Ryan gave him. Ryan tells his little brother that he can ride on the bike without the gloves, and encourages him to get ready. Erin pulls Ryan aside and tells him that he shouldn't encourage Jonathan's fantasies. Ryan tells her that he wasn't kidding about the bike ride - he just didn't reveal the destination. He informs her that he will be taking Jonathan to a hospital, where he belongs. Erin warns her older brother that if he attempts to do any such thing, the only person that will end up in the hospital is him. Ryan tries to convince Erin that it's the right thing to do, and tells her about a good hospital that he found with an apartment building next to it where they could live. Erin tells him that the last hospital Jonathan was in did him no good, and that if Ryan puts him in a new one, all hope will be lost. Just then, Jonathan finishes his preparation for the trip and announces that he is ready. Although Ryan soothes his brother by saying that once they take the bike ride, everything will be fine, Erin tries to convince Jonathan that if he leaves the house, he will no longer be safe. The childlike quality suddenly gone from his voice, Jonathan bores holes into his sister with his gaze and announces that he knows what she is trying to do. Ryan tries to convince Jonathan that Erin isn't the bad guy, but Jonathan is sure that Erin is working for their father. He is sure that Erin enjoys the torture Jonathan has to suffer, and believes that she will do whatever their father asks as long as she can remain Daddy's Little Girl, and as long as he gave her presents. Instead of freaking out, Erin calmly tells him that he can be mad at her, but she won't go anywhere, and she won't let him leave. He tells her that she doesn't have a choice - because Ryan is going to take him away to someplace safe. Ryan approaches his little brother and calmly tells him that it's time to go. Before they can leave, Erin pleads with Jonathan to realize that Ryan is not the same brother than he once knew - that Ryan is older, and has changed. With those words, Jonathan suddenly draws back, seeing his father where his brother stood only moments before.
Kendall arrives at Wildwind and interrupts Zach's attempt to get the gun away from Jimmy, the man sent to kill Julia. Zach lunges at Jimmy, and they struggle for control. As they fall to the floor, the gun goes off, and Kendall and Julia are in the dark about who got shot. Moments later, they have their answer, as Zach sits up, unharmed, while a bright stain of red spreads across Jimmy's chest. Kendall starts to call 911, but Zach snatches the phone from her before she has a chance, stating that there is no way Jimmy would make it. Ignoring both of them, Julia tries to staunch the flow of blood long enough to find out who ordered the hit on Noah. Jimmy struggles to speak, barely managing to eke out the words "The Dragon" before expelling his last breath. After they take a moment to absorb what just happened, Zach and Julia talk about how they will get rid of the body. Kendall is convinced that the police need to be involved, and that will lead to Julia's reentrance into the Witness Protection Program. Julia refuses to ever go back to that life again, and Kendall wonders aloud how she will avoid it once the authorities get wind of this. They argue, and in the process reveal that not only were they in cahoots to keep Zach away from Wildwind while Julia conducted her business with Jimmy, but also that Kendall paid Julia to get the job done and get away from Zach. Taken aback at all of the things he didn't know, he demands that the feuding duo stop chomping at the bit and fill him in on any other lingering details. When they both fall silent, Zach announces that because no one knew where Jimmy was headed, no one would be looking for him. Because of that, Zach feels that he will be able to make the body disappear without arousing anyone's suspicions. They roll him up in a carpet, and Zach announces that he will be storing the body in the mausoleum for the time being. Julia rages about that, saying that Jimmy doesn't deserve to lie in the same place as Edmund. Zach tells her that it's their only option, and that if she keeps fighting him every step of the way, he won't be able to keep his promise to protect her. At this, Kendall breaks in and reminds him that as his wife, he made promises to her - and that he needs to cut Julia loose and start worrying about his marital duties. Harshly, Zach reminds Kendall that their marriage is in name only, a business arrangement, which means that he will deal with Julia or whoever he wants, as he sees fit, without having to consider how she fits into the picture. Vulnerability cut off, Kendall makes a quip about the way he scolded her. Unaffected, Zach demands that she continue to keep quiet about Julia's presence in Pine Valley and the events that recently transpired. Fed up, she pronounces that both he and Julia are out of their minds, and then stalks out of the house. Alone again, Zach apologizes for things not working out as she had hoped. Julia asks if he has any idea what "The Dragon" means, and Zach admits that while he doesn't, he will find out.
A short time later, Kendall arrives at the police station downtown, and approaches Mimi, asking for the person in charge of the hunt for Julia Santos Keefer. Intrigued, Mimi tells her that she is in charge of that case. Kendall then drops a bombshell: she knows where Julia is.
David leaves a message for Krystal, catching her up on the fact that Babe is no longer speaking to him, thanks to her. He also tells her that someday, both she and their daughter will be thanking him. He hangs up the phone a split second before there is a knock at the door. Exasperated, he goes to see who it is. When he opens the door, he finds Erica on the other side, who promptly invites herself in. She tells him that she is concerned about the relationship that Dr. Madden has with Greenlee, and this experimental treatment. She wants to confirm that everything is above board, and enlists David for help. She presents David with a tissue and tells him that she squirted some of the contents of the syringe into it before returning the needle to Dr. Madden. David questions whether Erica is overreacting because of her own history with drugs. She admits that she might, but she also confesses that she has always had an uneasy feeling when she is around the good doctor. David thinks it's ironic that she is coming to him with concerns about a doctor with possible conduct unbecoming, and tells her that to this point, Greg Madden has had a spotless reputation. He feels that it would be foolhardy for Dr. Madden to risk anything illegal at this point. Erica asks if David is rejecting her request - and David denies as much. He just warns her that she shouldn't be surprised when the tests come back clean and legal. Erica thanks him and makes him promise to call when he has results, and then leaves him alone once again.
A sleeping Amanda is awakened by Jamie throwing money on her. She tells him how thrilled she is that he finally got the money he was owed. Jamie then asks if she was serious when she said that she wanted him, and she confirms that as truth. He then sweeps her into his arms and lays a kiss on her.
