Comforted, Zach leans in to kiss her, moments before Myrtle shows up in their open doorway with a handful of 'I told you so's. Kendall says her goodbyes and leaves the two friends to visit.

She admits that she is concerned about her son's future if the charade about Babe's death isn't revealed. Jack listens patiently and then tells her that their meddling has never done any good. She tries to protest but he tells her that their promise to stay out of the lives of their children was the foundation of their marriage. She tries to call his bluff by pointing out that he didn't follow his own rules when it came to Lily. He concedes her point but notes that he knows now that he was wrong and has been trying to make up for his mistakes, and get back to respecting the covenants of their marriage - and then asks if she had been doing the same.

Josh remains silent and she wonders aloud why he has no input. Only at her prompting do they start to review the possible scenarios, none of which has a good output. Babe balks at the fact that even when she is sure of what she wants, JR still has an effect. Josh tells her that no matter what her choice is, he will stand behind her. Before they can go any further, Kendall appears in her doorway, and the two women warmly embrace. Kendall admits that she was shocked when she didn't hear about Babe's amazing return from the grave when she got back, but Babe and Josh soon explain their hesitation. Kendall warns them that whatever they decide, they need to do it quickly, and promises that she won't rat them out if they decide to leave town. She then tries to get up to leave, but feels woozy and only Josh's quick reflexes breaks her fall. Kendall writes it off as a product of a rough couple of days and the fact that she didn't eat breakfast. Josh leaves the room briefly to get a few things so that he can check her out. Once the women are alone, Kendall notices an impish look on Babe's face and inquires as to its cause. Babe hints that perhaps Kendall's near collapse could be attributed to something else. Kendall counts back and admits that her being pregnant is possible, but then refuses to consider it as reality. Instead, she refocuses on the decision that Babe has to make. She then tells Babe that she would actually miss her if she decided to go. Smiling, Babe echoes the sentiment. A short time later, all checked out by Dr. Josh, Kendall prepares to go. She tells Babe that she hopes to see her again, and Babe notes that as soon as she makes a decision, she will let her know.
Krystal passes by the slightly ajar doors of the Chandler living room and hears JR call out that his son isn't very good at keeping secrets.

She hems and haws a bit, but when JR confronts her with the evidence that Winifred saw her putting Little A in the car, she tells him that she just wanted to spend some quality time with her grandson. Not very appeased, JR holds out a set of keys and asks her to take him where she took his son. Instead of walking out the door, she goes into the living room and asks if he really believes that she would take a three year old to a cemetery in the middle of the night, and tell him that his mom is stuck out there forever? JR realizes how his accusations sounded and apologizes. Krystal explains Little A's confessions as nothing more than a toddler's imagination in reaction to all of the emotions flying around the house. JR takes the bait and heads out for a meeting, much to Krystal's relief.
Bianca offers to come back another day with ZoŽ to see the doctor, but ZoŽ tells her that the delay could be indefinite if she doesn't face it head on. Bianca notes that she just wants her to be sure. ZoŽ tells her that she is, and that she has wanted this her whole life, but still finds it frightening. Bianca asks what scares her the most and ZoŽ tells her that the idea that she could complete her transition only to find that she is still lost is the worst thing she could imagine. While Bianca continues to assure her that she will be there every step of the way, JR watches them from nearby, initially unnoticed. They soon see him, and Bianca warns him not to start trouble. JR stops her before she can launch into full-blown defensive mode, and apologizes. ZoŽ seems confused and thinks it is meant for someone else, but JR tells her that just because he doesn't understand her doesn't give him the right to treat her as less than human. Just then, Erica emerges from the elevator and approaches her daughter. The doctor's assistant comes out at the same time and tells ZoŽ that the doctor is ready to see her. ZoŽ offers to go in alone, but Bianca tells her mother than she will catch up with her later, and the two friends retreat into the office.
Once inside, Bianca asks for permission to record the consultation, and doctor agrees. She first says that it's her job as an endocrinologist to lay out the complete picture of positives and negatives with hormone therapy. ZoŽ tells her that she is something of an internet MD, having spent many sleepless nights reading everything she could find. With slight coaxing, ZoŽ talked about the things that she had learned, and the doctor fills things in along the way. Bianca asks to review the parts about the dangers, as the mention of them concerns her more than she thought they would. Just then, the assistant comes back in and tells the doctor that the call she had been waiting for was holding. The doctor excuses herself, telling ZoŽ to think of any questions she may have while she is gone. Once alone, Bianca tells ZoŽ that she needn't go through the hormone therapy, since people already know who she is without it. ZoŽ tells her that living life in her body the way it has been for so long has made it clear that a total transition is what she needs to feel comfortable in her own skin. Bianca, seeing her determination, stops protesting just before the doctor returns to the office and apologizes for leaving. She asks if ZoŽ has any questions, and the singer tells her just that she would like to begin hormone treatments right away. The doctor looks at her sadly and says that she can't do that. ZoŽ thinks the doctor doesn't want to treat her, but she is quickly told that there is a protocol to follow before the physical transition can be completed. ZoŽ hesitates, but when Bianca reminds her that she has already waited a long time for this, she agrees to do things the doctor's way. Then, much to ZoŽ's surprise, Dr. Massey tells her that there is a transgender group meeting at the hospital shortly, and encourages her to go. A short time later, Bianca parts ways with ZoŽ at the door to the room where the meeting is being held. Though nervous, ZoŽ takes the plunge, and she sees average every day people inside. She closes the door and hopes for the best.

He then notes that he'd been reading their book a lot lately, especially Step 8: writing down the names of everyone who had been hurt. He tells them that he had a lot of names, but the one that hurt the most was his wife's because he has no way to make amends. He notes that he is willing to try to do whatever he can to make things right. They all stand, recite the Serenity Prayer and disband. JR and Erica stay behind, and she asks if what he said was for real. He tells her that he was being truthful, and she asks if his amends extend to Josh.
