He tells her that the police are still investigating, and asks her if she has any recollection of the accident. She doesn't, but she's worried that she may have done something awful to Babe. Jamie doesn't know anything about it, tells her to get some rest and that he is going to call her parents. She begs him not to, citing that Janet will go crazier than she already is if she hears about it. Jamie tells her that the hospital always calls next of kin when there is any kind of accident, but Amanda tries to convince him that it isn't necessary. Jamie then tells her that even though she thinks her mom will freak out, they need to call her so that someone will be there to sign off on paperwork in case they need to perform a procedure. A scared note creeps into her voice, and she asks Jamie if she's going to die. Jamie tells her that no one is saying anything like that, but it doesn't soothe her nerves.

Krystal berates Babe for choosing to take the rap for hitting Amanda as opposed to sending JR to jail. Babe admits that if it were an option, she would have chosen it. She fills her mom in on the fact that JR got her court-ordered visitation cancelled and his plans to leave the country with their son. Krystal notes that had she let him take the rap, he would have been in jail and would have been required to stay in town until trial. Babe explains that all she could think of was that if Amanda died, the charges and the stakes would be higher. Both of those things upped the chances that JR would jump bail and take off, never to be heard from again. Babe admits that she thought if she took responsibility, JR would owe her and she would have some leverage when it came to seeing her son. She realized that it backfired too late - because JR was too wasted to remember anything other than what he was told...which makes her guilty. Babe says that she had to make a quick decision in the moment and that she did the best she could. Krystal still hates the idea, but she admits that the plan may have some power. She tells her daughter to give JR the truth and use that to score more time. Babe tells her that she tried that, but JR was too wasted to take it all in. Krystal then says that if JR can't handle the truth in the moment, someone would, and she takes off up the stairs, with her daughter staring after her. Moments later, Krystal comes barreling back down into the living room with Adam in tow. Irate over being roused from bed, Adam demands to know what is going on. Krystal informs him that Babe saved JR from being tossed in jail, and that Adam will now return the favor. They give Adam the lowdown about what happened to Amanda and how Babe covered for his son. Adam is deep in denial then, because he believes that Babe is the last person that would cover for her ex-husband. They then tell him about JR's plans to leave the country, and Adam tries to call their bluff. They tell him that all he has to do is call his pilot to verify the story. He does just that, and finds out that JR has the pilot at the airport on standby all evening with instructions to tell no one. Hanging up the phone, a stunned Adam listens as his wife demands that he find a way to reign in JR before Babe has his passport yanked and sends JR to jail. Babe tries to restrain her mother, saying that she doesn't want there to be anymore blackmail. Krystal refuses to be held back and Adam calls her on her threats. Krystal confirms as much, saying that she would do anything to protect her daughter. What's more, she demands that Adam step in or she will have zero problem not keeping the family rap sheet to herself. She reminds Adam that as the lady of the house, she can do whatever she pleases. She tells Babe to come upstairs with her so that she can get settled in a guest bedroom. Babe tells her momma that she is sleeping outside of Little A's bedroom, but Adam protests, telling her that it isn't her visitation day. Babe admits that she wants to make sure that no one has the opportunity to sneak off with her son.

Julia informs Ryan, Erin and Erica that Sam stole the gun from the safe at Wildwind and is on the hunt for Jonathan. Her main concern is that Sam can't be the one to kill Jonathan - she doesn't want him to live with that for the rest of his life. She asks if Ryan has any clue where his brother might have run off to. After thinking a moment, he tells the small group that he has an idea where - but he doesn't think it's good place for his brother to be. Ryan prepares to head out to find Jonathan, and Erin and Julia insist they are going to accompany him. As he shrugs into his jacket, Erica notices the wound on his arm and asks after the cause. Stunned that she hadn't heard, he tells her about the fire and that Kendall and Greenlee are at the hospital. Erica runs out to be with her daughters, and Julia remembers that the tragedy at Wildwind started with a fire. She wonders if this fire is more of Jonathan's handiwork, and Ryan tries to diffuse the situation by reminding her and his sister that the important thing is to find Jonathan and Sam alive and unharmed.
Jonathan goes to the site of the mine collapse to talk to Braden. He gives an update on their two other siblings, and then apologizes. He notes sadly that while the doctors fixed him and he will get better, there is nothing he can do to bring Braden back. He then says that perhaps he won't get a new beginning - and that this is the best he'll ever be. He also posits that maybe he should go to jail for a long time to get better. Suddenly, a voice from behind says that he could save everyone the trouble, and Jonathan turns around and sees Sam pointing a gun at him. Jonathan asks who Sam in, and when he gets his answer, Jonathan apologizes. He tries to explain why he did what he did, but notes that he now knows that his explanations don't make it right. Sam angrily states that they had hoped Edmund would come back, not him...and that maybe if Jonathan apologized a little louder, Edmund would really be alive again. Increasingly nervous, Jonathan brokenly explains that if it would work, he would shout loud enough to bring back everyone he killed. Fairly shaking with rage, Sam pronounces Jonathan a freak and prepares to fire the gun at his target. Jonathan tells Sam about the tumor, and that he came back to Pine Valley to try to make up for what he did in some way. Sam replies that he can't be expected to understand what Jonathan went through, or to forgive him. Jonathan says that he doesn't expect forgiveness because he can't forgive himself. He further notes that maybe meeting his end at Sam's hands is best - whatever will make those he hurt happiest. He then tells Sam to instruct him what to do. Shocked that Jonathan won't run, Sam tells him to get on his knees and close his eyes. He holds the gun mostly steady, but before he can fire it, Ryan, Erin and Julia find them - and Julia begs Sam not to go through with it. They try to convince Sam to put the gun down but antsy, Sam moves behind Jonathan and away from anyone who can touch him. He asks if they think Jonathan deserves something other than a bullet. Ryan says that Sam should let the law deal with Jonathan, because if he fires the gun, Sam will have ended both he and Jonathan's life. Sam isn't scared and says that when he faces his father again, he wants to be able to stand before him, proud that he was there to help this time. Julia moves in a bit closer to her nephew and tells him that putting a bullet into the person you hate won't end the torture. Sam asks how she knows, and she confesses that she killed Garret Williams, the man who had Noah killed, when she didn't have to. Julia demands that Sam look at her, and she breaks down for him what his life will be like if he kills Jonathan. She reminds him that Jonathan won't get away with what he's done...and neither will Sam if he pulls the trigger. She begs him not to make her take the gun away - instead, she asks him to hand it over, knowing that he made the right choice. She asks him to do it for his father, because he knows that not becoming a killer is what Edmund would have wanted. As Erin and Ryan looked on with bated breath, they wait as Sam considers all that has been said. In a split moment, Sam puts the gun down and Julia takes it away. They all breathe a sigh of relief and Erin quickly kneels down to hug her brother.
Greg visits Greenlee and Kendall's hospital room. While Greenlee sleeps, he checks in on Kendall. He assures her that everything is fine with the baby, but he fears they might have bigger problems. He found out that Ryan was the one that rescued them from the fire, and he wondered if Kendall had a change of heart about the surrogacy. At that moment, Greenlee wakes up and, having heard his last statement, asks why he would think Kendall would now feel differently. Greg notes that because of all of the stress that has surrounded the pregnancy, he just wanted to make sure that everyone was okay to still proceed. Greenlee reveals that Ryan now knows that the baby exists, so there shouldn't be any more complications. Greg insists that they keep it that way, and then says that he wants to run a battery of tests. Greenlee is confused since he checked on the baby when they were first brought to the hospital after the fire. He explains that he wants to check for congenital defects or abnormalities. Greenlee tells him that there isn't any history of disease in her family or Ryan's, so there should be no need. Greg tries to assure Greenlee that although they may think all factors have been considered, there is a possibility that there are things unknown to even the biological donors. He tells her that in all of his handling of special pregnancies, it's just standard procedure for him to do the tests. Kendall admonishes Greenlee for not wanting to take every precaution and says that since she is already in the hospital, they might as well have it done. In turn, Greenlee wonders why Kendall doesn't have any questions - for example, how invasive the procedure is. Kendall urges her to trust the doctor and go for it, but Greenlee reminds her best friend that she has a say in the decisions because it's her baby. She then notes that Kendall hates needles, and wonders why she is so eager to get tested. Kendall calmly tells Greenlee that having never been pregnant before, every week there's something new. Even though the chances are remote, Kendall tells her best friend that she would just feel better being 100% sure that everything is okay. Greenlee asks for assurance one more time that the baby wouldn't be compromised, and Greg gives that to her. She finally agrees to sign the consent forms, much to everyone's relief. Greg says that he will ask a nurse to bring in the forms, and that he will run the tests in the morning. After instructing them to get some sleep, he goes to leave. As he opens the door, he finds Erica on the other side, poised to come in. They stare at each other uncomfortably for a moment, and then walk around each other and continue on their path.
Erica makes a beeline to Kendall, professing to be glad that they are both all right. She asks after the baby and they both tell her that the baby is okay, noting with their tone that they don't think she cares. Fed up, Erica tells them to knock it off. She rants on about how even though she was upset when they told her about the pregnancy, she was honest with them - which is more than she could say for either of them. She further notes that she has been loyal to them at the expense of keeping her husband in the dark. She feels that she has given all that she can and she doesn't deserve to be brow beaten. She goes to storm out but Kendall stops her and says that there is something that she needs to know. She tells her mother that when Ryan was saving them, Greenlee told him about the baby. Pleased, Erica notes that it's about time. She then confesses to a shocked Greenlee that Jack is in the know as well. She goes on to say that she can't believe Greenlee would continue to keep this from Jack now that Ryan knows. She tells them that their decision was a grownup one, and they need to start making some serious decisions, now that there will be a new person in the family. She tells them both to get some sleep, and leaves the room. Once they are alone again, Greenlee asks Kendall for a bit of truth: is it weird to be carrying Ryan's baby now that he is 'back from the dead'? Kendall tries to calmly answer Greenlee's questions but suspicion makes Greenlee fire them out at a rapid pace. Kendall tells her that she is just nervous because of the tests, but that everything will be fine. Greenlee questions Greg's demeanor and actions when he came into the room - speaking in hushed tones, and sharing secretive looks with Kendall - but Kendall blows her off, threatening to sleep in the sunroom if she doesn't calm down. Kendall turns her back to Greenlee, but is far from asleep.
Out in the hall, Erica runs into Greg again, and is surprised to see him in scrubs. He quickly tells her that he is on his way to deliver a baby and then takes his leave.

Babe sneaks into her son's room while she thinks JR is sleeping. Krystal comes in and tells her that Amanda is still in critical condition.
