Reva's captors led her into a dark room where she is fighting they off. They shove her down and leave her alone. She tries to fight against her restraints but to no avail. She talks out loud to Diego telling him that she fulfilled her promise to him and Ramona knows of his fate and how much he loved her. She also wonders who will tell her children what happened to their mother. She yells out loud that her captors have scared her and if that is what they were looking for they were successful. She is shouting when the goons come back in and toss Noah in badly beaten with blood all over his face. Reva climbs over to him and begs Noah to talk to her so she knows he is all right. She climbs over him and tries to stir him and he finally talks. He tells her to get off his chest so he can breathe. He is angry with her. He tells her that she had a chance to escape and she didn't take it. They argue and he tells her that she is going to have to learn that in any battle there can be only one commander. He tells her that the commander should be the one with the most experience and in their case that would be him. Reva wants to shut him up and kisses him. He smiles and tells her she knows how to make a guy feel better. He tells her that he needs to tell her something and she can't stop him this time. He tells her that she is a hell of a woman and very feisty. At first he just thought she was fun but then he realized what a big heart she has and how well she handles herself. She outsmarted him and sings a mean Karaoke. He said she is a good mother, journalist and a passionate lover. Reva interrupts him and asks if this is her eulogy. Noah says he has never said this and means everything he said. He tells her he is in love with her. Reva tells him he is a great person and he thinks she is trying to brush him off easily. Noah says he can't even make a decent exit to save face. She says before he came along, men were either friends, colleagues or ex-husbands. Then Noah came along and bosses her around all the time but still manages to keep her safe. He saved her life and probably many others as well. She knows he has seen a lot of pain and sadness in his life and she thinks he is a wonderful man. She is very lucky to know him. He teases her that her speech is the equivalent of a brush off. The goons come back in. They sit Noah and Reva back to back in two chairs and threaten them while they question them about what they are doing them. Noah jokes around with Reva and Goon #1 hits Noah. Reva is upset and visibly shaken.

At the Lewis':
Susan is telling Shayne, Sam, Marah and Max about Buzz's beating and how bad he looked. She tells them that she can tell he was scared but he assured her that the thugs that did that to him wouldn't come back again. Max and Shayne are talking about the CD's. Max and Shayne think it is a bad idea. They talk about going to Company but Marah is grounded for sneaking off to Infierno instead of the library like she said. Marah doesn't understand why she is grounded anyway and thinks that if it is meant to keep her out of trouble someone should have grounded her mom long ago.
They start talking about their "business." They have sold 163 CD's and need to sell 37 more to make their cost. Shayne tells them getting the money is the least of their worries. They still have to figure out how to get out of the house and to Chicago over night. Sam says that Marah has to visit some colleges and there are a lot in Chicago so she can use that and Max and Susan have to go to see whatever dance performance is scheduled for the same night as the NuGround concert. Susan, Marah and Sam think it is all going to work. Shayne says he doesn't need an excuse because he thinks the whole idea is going to blow up in their faces.
Tony knocks at the door. Marah tells him he can't stay because she is in too much trouble. Tony tells her that Josh and Olivia are at Infierno and he spoke to their waiter and they will have very slow service tonight. Marah is arguing with Tony and tells him he acted like a jerk at Infierno last night. He didn't try to cover for Marah and fell apart in front of Josh. He says he is a realist, not a chicken. When you are a few cards short, play what you are dealt. Since he was caught, he had to show Josh the proper respect so he could live to pull a battle on another day. Marah doesn't want to hear it and tells him that they are busy. Tony asks if it she is talking about the CD scam. He asks how many they have left to sell. They tell him 37. He asks what would happen if they sold 500. They said they would be able to get a limo and a 1st class suite for their stay in the Windy City as well as a great dinner. Tony says he can sell 500 and makes a phone call. He tells the guy on the phone that he found 500 NuGround CD's that fell off a truck and asks if he wants them. The guy says he does and Tony hangs up. He tells the group that if they want to sell them he can hook them up. Max wants to know what is in it for him and he tells them he wants money just like they do. He offered them to the guy for $6 instead of $5 and tells them that the extra buck is for him. Tony gets $500 and they get $2500. They are excited. Tony tells them that when he wants something he usually gets it; he looks over at Marah. Sam wonders how they will burn that many CD's that fast, he says his laptop won't do it. Marah tells them that her dad has tons of computers as work and they can use them. Susan chimes in and says that she can borrow the key to the Spaulding computer lab from Beth as well. Sam asks how fast her dad's computers are. She says she isn't sure but it has to be fairly fast since Josh runs his micro-drafting programs on it. Shayne comes back in from calling Josh and tells Susan that Harley called and wants her to get to Cedars. He tells her that Buzz is asking for her. She is concerned.
Marah tells Tony she doesn't know where Shayne got to and he says he doesn't care as long as he has her to himself. She tells him he can turn on the charm but she is still angry because he turned coat with her dad the other night and now she is grounded. He tells her there is a bright side and that at least he knows where she is now when he wants her. He looks like he is about to kiss her when Josh and Olivia show up. Tony hides before they see him. Josh comes in and asks Marah to tell him what is going on. Marah lies and says she and Shayne were studying and asks how their dinner was. Josh says that he didn't have dinner because he had the feeling he needed to come home. She tells him that Sam, Max, and Susan came over. Marah realizes that Shayne called Josh and then she admits that Tony was there but left when she asked him to and there was no need for him to come home. Josh tells the kids to do their homework and she asks if she can use his work computer because she has to download a lot of info. Josh thinks that would be fine. The kids leave and Josh tells Olivia he wants to discuss their future. Josh tells Olivia they are both in the construction business, and their life is almost like building a house. First you have a plan, then a blueprint and then a foundation and you begin to build. Olivia wants to know what you build. Josh says you build something that will last a very long time. Olivia asks Josh how long is a long time but they are cut off when the phone rings. It is Reva and Josh asks her where she is. She says she is at Cedars and she needs his help. She wants him to come there. Josh says he is on his way. Marah and Shayne overhear but Josh tells them to stay home. He asks Olivia to come with him.
The thugs are questioning Reva and Noah about who they are and what they know. Noah gives them his name rank and serial number and leaves it at that. He doesn't say anything and then seems to pass out. The guy starts asking Reva questions and threatening her. She doesn't want to talk either. There is a knock at the door. It's Danny. He yells out, "What the hell is going on here?" They go to the door and Reva looks back at Noah. She shoves him until he stirs a little. She just wanted to make sure he was alive. The goons tell Reva to be quiet or they will kill them both.
Outside, Danny asks what is going on. They ask him who he thinks he is and he tells them if they cross him he will be their worst nightmare. He introduces himself as Danny Santos. The guy tells Danny that he doesn't want to be there. Danny wonders why that is. Danny asks if the guy thinks that because he is in the slave trade market. The guy asked how he found out and Danny told him that he intercepted a messenger they had sent to his home. He tells them that effective immediately, the Santos family is out of the slave trade business. He tells them that he knows about Reva and Noah and wants them out. Inside, Reva hears Danny's voice and recognizes it. The guy tells them that he doesn't answer to him and he should leave. Danny tells them to let Reva and Noah go and to close up shop. The goon tells Danny he doesn't take orders from him and Danny smiles. He asks the goon if he just threatened him and shows him his ring. He says he is the only one anyone answers to. He wants the operation shut down within the hour, all the immigrants are to be set free with $1000 each and Reva and Dr. Chase are to be dropped off at the hospital.
Josh is having a hard time with the waiter. He keeps ignoring him. Olivia gets his attention and orders a drink. Olivia gives Josh and envelope from Ross. The divorce is final and Josh says he is single. Olivia apologizes and tells Josh that she knows it hurts. He tells her that it really doesn't. It is more of a relief to him. He tells her Reva is someone else's problem now and he isn't the same guy he was. He tells her he is the new Josh Lewis who is grateful to be with her and for her patience with him. He takes her hand and kisses it. Josh toasts Olivia right as his phone rings. It is Shayne. He asks him to come home. He tells his dad that he isn't trying to be a rat but believes he should get home ASAP. Josh looks funny at Olivia and says, "Check." They leave.
