On the beach, Ryan assures Annie that no secret she could tell him would change his love for her. Uncertain, she asks that he kiss her first, as he may never kiss her the same way again. She then brokenly tells him what life was like growing up with her brother – he was a person that could do no wrong and was always supported by their parents. However, if she dared to speak out against him, she was told that she had problems and that she was sick. Then, when her father had his accident, she was appalled to find that her parents still insisted that her brother was in no way at fault. Although she didn't have any physical proof, she was certain that her brother was behind everything. The case went to trial, and she decided that she couldn't continue to let her brother hurt people, so she lied on the stand and said that she witnessed her brother violently commit a robbery, all while her mother was sobbing her denial. She goes on to say that she believed her brother would be sent to a mental hospital to get help for his issues. Instead, the prosecution pressed for hard time and he was sent to prison for 10 years. Ryan tells her that he understands what she did, and that she shouldn't blame herself. On a roll now, she tells Ryan that the same day that her brother was sent to prison is the same day her mother killed herself, after mother and daughter had a huge fight. She admits that her father has blamed her for everything since then, and Annie couldn't help but agree. Ryan tells her that her father was wrong for doing that, and asks if he has been the one responsible for the phone calls and the packages. Annie says that she thought it was her brother, but she called the prison and they confirmed that he was still there, and that he hadn't been granted the privilege of using a phone. However, the thought that her father would torture her like this seemed unfathomable. Shielding her protectively in his arms, Ryan promises that he will not let anyone hurt her or their family anymore. She wonders how that is even possible, and then decides that the first step is getting rid of the locket – the one her mother was wearing when she died. She yanks it off of her neck and with Ryan's hand cupped over hers, they throw it out into the water.
Back at the house, Kendall thanks Zach for calling her out on her old behavior, where she acted out because she couldn't trust people. She apologizes for everything that she did and makes him promise that he will stay with her even when she messes up. He does, and makes her promise in return to be honest with him. Then, although Zach offers to help, Kendall insists that she would be fine putting Spike down for the evening. She demands that he stay put until she gets back and spirits the little boy away with a sly grin on her face. She returns a short time later wearing a short trench coat, and Zach, intrigued, asks her what took so long. She takes a seat beside him and tells him that he'd just have to find out for himself. She shoots naughty glances at him, enticing him to relieve her of her jacket, and Zach happily obliges. Then, when he gets a few buttons undone, Kendall stands and crosses the room so that she could more easily show him the outfit that she picked out to wear for him. All signs point to lingerie of some sort but when Kendall finally stops teasing her husband and opens the jacket, she reveals that she is wearing a cheerleader's uniform emblazoned with the logo of his favorite hockey team. Zach is more than pleased with her choice and to show his appreciation, he slowly makes love to his wife. Afterwards, as they relax on the couch with the baby monitor near by, they decide that while small talk is fine, round two is a better idea. Zach reaches up to turn off the light, and accidentally knocks it over. At the same time, Spike starts crying and Kendall immediately thinks that Spike's hearing has been restored.
At the Yacht Club, Erica and Jack sit down for dinner, grateful that they were able to share some intimate time together in "their" suite. Greenlee walks in but upon seeing her father with her less-than-favorite person, starts to leave. Erica spots her and calls her over. Greenlee can't imagine why she would do such a thing, but quickly realizes that Erica is trying to save face. Unwilling to let that come to fruition, Greenlee takes verbal jabs and drops loaded hints – which Erica can't help but respond to – until the truth comes out about their heated confrontation at Fusion. Jack begs them to leave their animosity alone for a short while so that they can have a peaceful dinner, but it was not to be. Erica is appalled that Jack is so blind to the fact that Greenlee is still such a bad influence in her daughter's life. Jack, not realizing that the word wasn't already out, tells Erica that Greenlee has been trying to help out as a way of atoning for her mistakes, including finding a doctor that would help Kendall with Spike's hearing loss. Greenlee is shocked and wants to know who has been spreading around her personal business, but Jack is too flustered to reveal the truth. Erica, irate that Greenlee is still insinuating herself into her family despite the fact that she is the cause of all of the drama, demands to know the doctor's name. It falls out of Greenlee's mouth in the course of conversation, and that morsel of information is enough to send Erica flying off to track him down. She storms away from the table and quickly places a call to Val, asking for assistance in finding where the doctor is located.
Amanda is beside herself with rage when she finds out that JR doesn't own the yacht that they have been frequenting. The true owner demands that they vacate the ship, and starts to make rounds to discover if there is anything that needs to be repaired or replaced. JR insists that he had the best of intentions, and that he thought he would have more cash by now to make the purchase go off without a hitch. Amanda tells him that he should give up his pipe dream of earning money fast with his Ava idea, and simply ask his father for his shares back, since Adam would do anything to win JR back. JR tells her that he doesn't want to be won, and further notes that he made the decision about the stocks because he wanted to get out of his father's corporate shadow. He believes that if Adam can build an empire out of nothing, so could he. Amanda seems less than impressed, but when the owner comes back, JR quickly spins a tale of how he has his eye on a larger boat that's in better shape a few slips down, and this causes the man to reconsider his eviction of the young mogul and his companion. When he leaves, JR tells Amanda that the Chandler name is like a platinum card with no limit, and he plans to use that to his advantage as long as he can. Amanda is wooed once more by the idea of a lot of money and with all thoughts of her meeting out the window, she falls back into bed with him.
At the Martin-Carey residence, Krystal spends some quality time with Adam, who is still masquerading as his brother. In that time, Adam continually fears that he will be found out because Krystal remarks more than once about a shared look that the brothers have. Adam is able to keep her suspicions at bay while finding out how she truly feels about him. Krystal admits that while she wishes she could love Tad, that part of her heart still belongs to Adam. He asks her if she could ever be with Adam again, and Krystal says that even if she could forgive her ex-husband for leaving her while she was in active labor, or for the stunt he pulled to get another couple to adopt her baby, she can't change how Adam feels when he looks at Jenny. She believes that for Adam, forgiveness will never come. Adam tries to affect his brother's lovable persona enough to convince her that Adam could change, but Krystal notes that family is a possession for Adam, and that he could never look on them with the kind of love and caring that Stuart does. She then thanks him for being such a good friend and rewards his kindness with a small kiss on the lips. Adam is a little flustered but luckily that kind of behaviour falls in line with how his brother normally acts. He uses that feeling as an excuse to get home and as he leaves, Krystal places a finger to her lips and watches him go with a more knowing look on her face.
Across town a short while later, Erica storms into Dr. Hilliard's office and starts to demand information about who he thinks he is and what he thinks he is doing with her family. She stops short when she recognizes him and, with his head quickly snapping up, he recognizes her too.
