Reva visits Daisy and finds her sulking in bed. Daisy didn't go to school and tells Reva Rafe doesn't want her now, and that she saw him with another girl. Reva tells Daisy that she can't stay depressed and that she needs to move on with her life, and tells her to get dressed. Reva takes Daisy to the Spaulding mansion, hoping that Daisy and Rafe can talk. Natalia informs them that Rafe isn't there, but also makes it clear she's upset about what Daisy did. Reva sends Daisy back to her place to study, while she stays to have a chat with Natalia. Reva advocates for Daisy, and tries to get Natalia to understand Daisy's dilemma, but Nat stands firm in her position that Daisy was wrong for doing what she did. Reva, who is starting to get riled up now, picks up a vase and throws it to make a point that she is unpredictable. She then continues to point out how Rafe was also involved, and how Nat isn't so pure herself, having slept with Gus, who was married to Harley at the time, and thereby committing adultery. Reva finally gets Nat to see that everyone has to be responsible for his or her own actions.

Later, Reva talks to Buzz on Main Street, and have a friendly yet heated discussion about Reva's involvement in Daisy's life. Buzz tells her that Daisy should turn to Harley more, and Reva responds that Harley should be involved with Daisy. When they're done talking, Reva walks over to a private bench, and calls Jeffrey. She leaves an emotional message saying she misses him and wants him to come home. Later, Reva goes back to where Daisy is, finds her curled up in bed again feeling sad, and tries to help her move on. Daisy tells Reva how she has grown fond of Harley, and that is the reason she's having a hard time facing her about this situation (her abortion). Reva continues to encourage Daisy to talk to Harley.

Marina is recovering in the hospital; Frank and Buzz come to check on her. All three have an emotional reunion, as they are all happy that to see each other after Marina's kidnapping ordeal. Then, Marina asks about Cyrus, to see if he has returned yet, as he told her he would. Frank tells her that he hasn't. Marina is worried, and rightly so, that Griggs has Cyrus and that Cyrus is in danger, and pleads with Frank to send help for him. Frank said he did send help - the 2 weakest links on the police force. Marina tells Frank of how Cyrus saved her life twice and she loves him. When Frank says that she has loved before, she tells him this is different than the others. Harley shows up to see Marina and hears the heated and emotional exchange between Marina and Frank, and suggests that Frank take a break. Harley and Marina talk about Cyrus, and Harley knows that he is likely to be in danger, and agrees to go try to help him somehow.

Later, while Harley waits in the hall outside of Marina's room, Gus arrives to visit Marina, and also says he's there to see Harley too. Harley is socially friendly but emotionally distant towards Gus. He invites her to dinner, but Harley brushes him off, at first. Eventually, Harley agrees to call him later about it, and Gus leaves.

Griggs is holding Cyrus at gunpoint in an old church that is about to be torn down. Just as Griggs is about to pull the trigger, Cyrus starts to spout off some numbers and a password. Cyrus says he has information about accounts stored in his head, and if he dies, access to that money dies. Griggs starts to write down the numbers, and Cyrus tries to take his gun, but Griggs is able to keep him from doing that and hits Cyrus on the head with the gun, hard enough to give Cyrus blurry vision. Griggs writes down the info that Cyrus gives him, then leaves Cyrus tied up, while he tries to access those accounts. Alone, Cyrus starts to hallucinate about Marina, seeking her guidance as to what to do to get out of the mess he's in. Then, he hallucinates about Harley, trying to still figure out what to do.

Harley remembers that Griggs likes to use old, abandoned places to hide out, and gets information about all such places in the area. She then goes to the old church to see if she can find Cyrus there. She finds him, but before she can untie him, Griggs returns.

Inside the Light: A Piece of my Heart

Josh and Cassie go to see the doctor to find out if Cassie can have a baby. She has endometriosis. Because of advancements in technology, they think there is a chance she can get pregnant. As Cassie undergoes tests, Josh runs into Reva in the hospital lobby. After sharing photos, he tells her that Cassie is having surgery. Reva confronts Josh about how he's once again giving up his life and his needs so that Cassie can have something. He tells her that he's had a change of heart, but Reva disagrees. She thinks he's putting Cassie's needs ahead of his own.

Cassie has a nightmare about Alan trying to take her children. Beth is there when she awakes. In a medicated daze, Cassie tells Beth that her baby isn't Rick's child. Beth cannot get Cassie to awaken and verify what she said. Meanwhile Josh and Rick discuss how well their baby situations are working out. Beth approaches. Perplexed by Cassie, she tells the men that Cassie informed her that the baby is Alan's. Shrugging, she wonders why Cassie would say something like that.

After Beth leaves, Josh expresses how he doesn't like lying. Rick reminds him that Cassie can go to jail for switching the tests. In Cassie's room, Josh tells Cassie what she told Beth. Panicked, she wonders how they handled it. Josh admits that he didn't tell her the truth. Cassie apologizes for having him sacrifice pieces of himself for her. He brushes it off as no big deal. They all make choices and sacrifices. She asks that he is sure. He agrees and kisses her.

Later at the hospital, Cassie and Josh learn that the operation was a success. They have a long road ahead of them to conceive, but the doctor is hopeful. On Main Street, Cassie realizes that she doesn't want to go through the procedures. She feels bad making Josh sacrifice to have the baby, sacrifice his integrity to lie to Beth and sacrifice himself when he went to jail. He feels it's no problem because they are married. Cassie wonders about his dreams and wants him to just concentrate on the church. She has a new mission now. She wants to get Will back.

Apparently, Alonzo is in jeopardy of losing the crown and he uses Will as a prop to sustain a monarchy in San Cristobel. Will is miserable on the island. Cassie wants him back. Josh wonders what's worse, a year of fertility treatments or a legal battle. He reminds her that she signed all her legal rights away to the biological father. Cassie thinks she can find a loophole.

He explains the situation to Reva and asks her if Jeffrey can help them. He called Reva because Jeffrey is unreachable right now. Reva explains that Jeffrey is on a secret assignment for her and she can't talk about it. She wonders if they can wait for Jeffrey. Reva and Josh tell each other all they ever want is for the other to be happy. Reva tells Josh that he belongs in the church.

At the docks, Cassie meets Josh to let him know how excited about Will. She doesn't want to use him as a replacement for Tammy. She thinks that all the things that have happened have led her to this moment to get Will home.

In San Cristobel , Will plays with his fencing sword near a tiny gate like cage. Uncle Edmond is inside the cage. He asks Will if he told his mother about him. Will says no. Edmond asks if he told her how much he wants to come home. The boy nods. Edmond happily thinks it's just a matter of time.

He states that she had a marriage and family, things he would love to half and she just left it to save him. Suddenly, the pair hears voices. It is the demolition team. The pair yells for help. Outside, Billy seems to hear something but dismisses it as nothing.

After a lot of screaming and banging, Harley gives up-stating that they cannot be heard. Resigned, Cyrus tells Harley that she does not know everything. He tells her that he has a brother. Their mom died when they were young and he had to take care of him. Harley realizes that is like she and Frank. Cyrus points out that Harley was wrong-he does know what is like to have someone that depends on him; who you would beg, borrow or steal to take care of. Harley admits that she was wrong. It gets quiet outside and an upset Harley knows that is because they are getting ready to demolish the church. To distract a freaked out Harley, Cyrus gets her to play rock, paper, scissors for her house as they wait for the end.
