At the hospital, Rick informs Olivia that because the bleeding and the
contractions have stopped, she is expected to have a healthy baby. Phillip
requests to see Olivia. When Phillip comes in, Olivia apologizes to him for
not letting him see her before. She explains to Phillip that it had to do
with Lizzie. She tells him that she believes Lizzie caused her fall.
Phillip doubts her, so Olivia tells him that Lizzie sent Ben up to the cabin
and Tammy and Cassie know this as well. She continues to explain that
Lizzie told her before that the carpet was ripped, and she had it fixed.
The day she fell, the carpet had been ripped again, and that's how she fell.
Phillip asks her why she didn't tell him in the first place that she
suspected Lizzie of setting up her fall. Olivia tells him that she knew he
wouldn't hear it. She tells Phillip that she can't see him anymore because
it is the only way to protect their baby from his daughter. Phillip still
doubts that Lizzie had anything to do with the fall, and after Olivia
explains how things went down, he tells her that it sounds to him that
Lizzie was trying to prevent the fall by calling out to her. Olivia
questions Phillip whether protecting himself from the truth is worth their
baby's life. Phillip tells her to be reasonable, and Olivia demands that he
leave. Rick comes in due to the loud voices to see if everything is
alright, and Phillip steps out.

At the museum, Marah arranges a protest. The group plan to protest the Dean insisting that the Mole be taken off the college radio station. Marah questions Sandy, the Mole's assistant, why the Mole didn't show up. Marina tells Marah that it is probably because the Mole has made a living bad mouthing people, and now those same people are defending him. It's probably embarrassing for him. Remy reminds the crew that his dad, the Dean, rarely changes his mind about anything unless it's an act of God. Shayne feels that Marina dragged him along for the protest because she is trying to avoid making a decision regarding Ben's trust fund.

Gus shows up and tells Phillip that they found Beth's car, and Harley is on her way to them now. Gus questions the depth of Lizzie's problems.

Gus gets a call from Harley. She tells him that she found Beth, Lillian, and Lizzie; and there are a lot of loud voices coming from inside. Phillip wants her to get Lizzie out of there. Harley tells Phillip that she is not going inside yet because it sounds like an intervention to her. Phillip tells her that it may be an intervention, but the whole family should be a part of it.

Harley explains that Lizzie is getting a workout from her mother, but she is holding her own.
Inside the rustic retreat, Lillian and Beth try to get Lizzie to open the bathroom door. Beth tells her that they came up there to talk, and it is a lot harder to do with a door between them. Lizzie tells them that they don' t want to talk, they just want to tell her how bad and crazy she is. She opens the door and insists that they stop calling her sweetie. She tells them that she has already told them what happened, but no one believes her, so they are done talking. Lizzie heads for the door, but Beth grabs her arm. Lizzie pushes Beth down then smashes a vase on the floor. Lillian pulls Beth aside to talk about what style of pressure to put on Lizzie. In the meantime, Lizzie has picked up a piece of glass from the broken vase. Beth and Lillian return to continue their conversation, but Lizzie threatens to cut her wrist. Harley is watching from outside, and tells Phillip and Gus that she is going in. She leaves her cell phone on and walks in. She tells Lizzie that no one is going to get hurt. Harley tells Lizzie that cutting her wrist won't solve anything because it hurts, it's messy, and she might not even die. She continues to say that the three of them will be all over her the second she cuts her wrist, and her grandmother is a nurse, so she probably won't even die. Gus and Phillip are hearing everything. Harley talks to her about her illness with leukemia and how happy the family was to see her beat the odds, and how hard she fought for her life. Harley tells her that if she dies, she can not tell the people who love her what really happened. Harley reaches for the glass. Lizzie lets her take it, and they share a hug. Beth tells them they need to go back to Springfield and suggests that Lizzie ride with Harley. Lillian thinks that Beth is giving up. Beth tells her that she is not giving up, she just doesn't want a repeat scene. Lillian tells her this was just an act because if she wanted to hurt herself, she could have done it when she was alone in the bathroom.
Phillip is relieved, but is questioning where they go from here. Phillip feels that he has failed as a father. His daughter was ready to cut her wrist, and he was forty miles away. Gus tells him that he thinks he is a very good father. Phillip tells Gus that he has had his eyes closed, and if they were open he could have seen this coming.

up on her daughter. Beth goes through the what if's, and Lillian tells her
that is exactly why they have to go through with the intervention process.

with just the three of them, and if it didn't work, they would check her
into a treatment facility. Beth breaks down, and Lillian tells her not to
think of it as a defeat, but as a positive step. Lizzie would be safe, and
she would be able to work through her problems. Beth tells Lillian that she
knows she is right, it just hurts.

Lizzie wants to know what she means by that, and Harley explains that after trying to kill herself, the family can' t ignore her problems anymore.
