Selena tells her that there is something's that she hasn't been straight about but she will tell her later.
At another table, Frank, David and Harley are discussing what happened to Reva and Frank. They suspect that the Santos family was involved. David is talking about the Santos brothers, Miguel, Federico and Hernando. He said Miguel was beaten badly 12 years ago and died in Carmen's arms. Hernando was killed before him, and Federico died just last year. By process of elimination he feels that Maria Santos, (Abuela), must be in charge now.
Susan sees Sam. She tells him that school started and hopes to see him there even though he is a senior. She invites him to meet her friends at Company later. Sam has to meet his sister's boyfriend first. Susan figures out that he is Olivia's brother. Later, Susan, Max and Marah are outside talking. Susan wants to tell her about Sam, but Marah isn't listening. She tells Marah that Sam is a great guy but is Olivia's brother and she wants to introduce them. Just then, Sam arrives and realizes he had met her at the hospital. He says something about Reva being a cold person and Marah says something about Olivia being a snake.
At the Santos house:
Ray tells Danny that he hasn't seen Abuela that angry in years. Danny tells Ray about the construction accident and the questions from Reva and Frank and mentions how he had questioned Abuela about it and she got angry then. Tony walks in and says that Danny "dissed" Abuela. Ray started thinking and he also wondered if Abuela was involved. Tony says Danny better make it up to Grandma or he should go to Chicago. Ray wants to know how close to the truth Danny came.
Ray asks Danny for details about the conversation with Frank. Danny insists he didn't know anything but Ray wants to know why Frank would think that. Tony wants to take care of it. Ray goes to talk to Abuela in the garden. He asks her why she took Danny's questions so personally. She is still angry and tells him when she wants to go to confession she will see him at church. Ray tries to continue pressing and Tony tells him he already knows the score. Ray says that maybe he should call himself a Santos. He tells them that he loves his entire family but is unable to stay there any longer. He is going back to the rectory so he can get out of the snake pit and avoid getting bitten. Abuela tells Ray that he worries too much.
At the hospital:
Olivia is fluffing Josh's pillows as Marah enters. Josh asks Marah if something is wrong and she tells him what happened to Frank and Reva. Josh is worried and asks for more details and if Reva was all right. Marah says she is fine but she isn't talking much about the incident. She wants him to call Reva but hesitates to ask him. Josh said that he will call but Olivia thinks it is a bad idea. Marah gets upset and tells Olivia that things would work out great for Olivia if Reva were hurt. Olivia tells Marah that she isn't that selfish and petty and that she only wants everyone to be happy and doesn't wish Reva ill. Marah says that her parents were married and that was supposed to last forever until Olivia came along. Marah walks out. Josh goes to use the phone and Olivia tries to stop him. She says that Reva is addicted to Josh and he isn't helping her. He has to leave her alone. Josh says this is different and he doesn't want Reva getting hurt. He goes ahead and calls Rev! a and asks her to come see him.
Marah runs into Sam who is rollerblading in the hospital hallway. She keeps walking out and Sam goes into Josh's room and introduces himself and asks for Olivia. They make conversation about Sam's arrival. Reva comes into the room and Josh introduces them. Reva says she is surprised to see Sam in the room when Olivia was restricting visitors and didn't let Marah see him until a few days ago. Josh says that he knows what happened with Olivia and Marah. Sam decides to leave since Reva was talking down about Olivia. Josh says that Marah is now taking Reva's attitude toward Olivia. Reva starts joking and tells him to table this discussion. She has flowers for him. Josh wants to talk about what happened to her and Frank. Reva says maybe the guy was drunk or on a cell phone. Josh says maybe it was because of her story and wants her to back off. Reva says no. Josh says he is the only casualty and he wants to let it go. He doesn't want her to get hurt. Reva says there is more to it than a story. He says yes, it is about Reva's problem with letting go. Reva says Olivia has been talking to him. This is about a man named Diego and tells him that Diego was the one that rescued him. Josh thought it was her. She tells him how Diego helped her and what all had happened. Josh said he would like to meet Diego and Reva tells him that he died in the accident. She tells him about it and starts crying telling him about his last words and Diego's wife and the sweat shop. She tells Josh that Diego asked Reva to find his wife and tell him how much he loved her. Reva promised him she would and then he died. She feels like she owes him for saving Josh. Josh takes Reva's hand and says he is sorry, he didn't know. He wants to know what he can do. Reva says just get better. Josh said he would be discharged from the hospital tomorrow. Reva tells Josh she has made funeral arrangements for Diego and Josh agrees to attend. He thanks her for the flowers and tells her to be careful. Reva says she will do her best, and leaves his room.
Olivia comes back in and sees Josh's flowers and says, I take it Reva was here. Josh says yes. Olivia says she won't apologize for what she said but she really believes it. Josh said he believed it too, until he talked to Reva. She had a reason greater than he had imagined. It would be good for both of them to take on the same kind of attitude. Olivia gets sarcastic and says they should all emulate Reva. Josh says Reva has the courage to do what is right, no matter how it will effect her. Olivia thinks that is what she does. Olivia says something is wrong because Reva and Josh aren't going their separate ways; it is not over. She can't accept this; it is not okay with her. Olivia walks out of the room.
