Rick wants to explain why he did it. Rick finished the explanation and tells her no one but he and Claire know. Harley says I wonder how Edmund found out. Rick says he almost forgot what he had done.

He will be straight with them when necessary, but that he needs all possible tests done so he can be informed of the entire situation and make better decisions. Beth asks if the leukemia is genetically transmitted. Noah says not to feel guilty about Lizzie's illness.

In San Cristobel (at the hospital):

Cassie is worried about Richard and the trouble that will come from protecting the fugitives. Richard says it will be okay. The doctor comes out and says it is touch and go for Jesse, the bullet was very near his heart. Cassie asks if he is stable and the doc says it is complicated due to him being a heart transplant recipient. Michelle goes in to visit Jesse. Cassie and Danny stand in doorway. Cassie tries to tell Danny no one blames him but Danny says Jesse is the last connection Michelle has to her mother. So he may have killed one of her best friend and all that was left of her mom. She tries to tell him that it wasn't his fault; he was just trying to protect his wife.

Rick sends Lizzie off with a nurse to pick out a bed for the new baby to sleep in while it's at the hospital. Claire is upset.

She asks him to let her know if he does, he tells her he will but that it will be best for everyone if she would get on the first plane back to Chicago and not come back. She leaves.

At Phillip and Harley's:
Noah calls everyone inside and tells them that somehow, probably during the plane crash while Phillip and Beth were stranded, Phillip had contracted a virus of sorts. Apparently this mysterious virus is very contagious, but no one else had contracted it yet, and requires immediate attention. Noah tells them that Phillip will have to enter a special hospital that deals with this kind of illness and take care of it. Phillip doesn't want to go but Noah tells him that he could spread the illness to Lizzie or someone else with a low immune system if he doesn't take care of it. Noah said the treatment can last anywhere from weeks to months. Phillip insists that they leave right then so he can get back to be with his daughter during her treatments. He asks if he can at least say goodbye to her. Noah said to keep it brief, since the virus is spread through air and to try not to touch her. Phillip calls Rick and asks him to bring Lizzie home.

Lizzie cries and doesn't want to go through chemo without him. Phillip tries to be positive. Beth tells her Phil will call her all the time. Both parents tell her to be brave. Lizzie tries to hug him but he says that she can't. She hugs Beth and cries. Phil is having a hard time because he can't touch her. He promises he will read her a book on the phone tonight. He goes outside and takes a deep breath. He apologizes to Harley. She tells him that she and Zack will be fine. Phillip tells her that he will call her every night and that he loves her. He asks her to tell Noah he is ready so he won't have to see Lizzie again. He doesn't think he could take hurting her anymore. Rick, Noah, and Phillip leave. Edmund comes out from hiding and looks at the door.
Jim tells Lizzie it will be okay. Beth offers to get her a cell phone so she can always talk to her dad.

At Company:

Marah didn't like the idea. A guy comes over and asks Marah how she is doing. He overhears that Reva is going to college with Marah and politely excuses himself and tells his buddy at the next table that Marah and her mom were going to school together. Marah tells her mom basically that she would cramp her style. They laugh and Marah tells her that it could be a good idea. She said her mom needed a college man to date in order to make her dad jealous. Reva tells her that isn't why she is going back to school. She tells Marah that her dad has already seen her with another man and told her about how she was with Dr. Noah when Josh came in.

At tower's:
Josh, Olivia and Ross were talking about how great their business is going and how much money they were making. Josh goes to take a phone call and Olivia asks Ross to suggest to Josh that, for business reasons, he should look into getting a legal separation so if things turn bad, Reva wont be able to take any part of the company. Ross tells her that she should talk to Josh about it. Blake comes in and overhears Olivia. Ross goes over to Josh while Blake lets Olivia have it. She tells her how Reva and Josh were meant to be and she is kidding herself if she thinks she is important to him. Olivia tells her that she has no idea how things are for her and Josh and she should mind her own business. Meanwhile, Ross tells Josh about Olivia's idea. Josh is upset that Olivia asked him about that but Ross tells him that it is a good idea. Josh says he isn't interested. They go back out to the table and Ross and Blake leave. Josh tells Olivia she stepped out of bounds and asks her why she asked Ross about a legal separation. Reva walked up behind him and said, "She probably mentioned it because she's right."

Josh asks if he can speak to her and they go over to another table. Josh tells her that this legal suggestion is coming out of the blue and he wasn't prepared for it. She tells him she doesn't know why since he had been sleeping with another woman for months now. She tells him it is the next logical step and although Olivia brought it up for business reasons, she (Reva) brought it up for her own protection. She feels that Olivia will somehow try to steal her rightful stuff away, or at least turn Josh against her having them. Josh tells her that she and the kids will get everything they want and need, no matter what happens. Josh doesn't understand where all this is coming from. Reva tells him that he hasn't talked to her in months and they haven't shared anything the whole time. She feels they are going two separate ways and she wants something in writing about her security. Josh understands that they are going on with their lives but he isn't sure he is ready for all this. He tells her that she is a stranger to him, she is going to college dating Noah and it is upsetting to think that Dr. Chase knows more about her than he does right now.

Reva again mentions Olivia and Josh gets a little angry. He tells her that no one could make him cheat his family. He tells her that if she wants everything legal, fine. She tells her to get a lawyer and have him call his lawyer and Olivia will never be able to touch you again. He gets Olivia and they leave. Josh is angry and Olivia asks if he is okay. He says no and tells her that she interfered and put him in a difficult place. He has to make the decisions about him and Reva but it is his decision.
