Eve, Kevin, Scott and Lucy are at the lighthouse brainstorming about DV. Kevin suggests that if Scott and Lucy were to break up, DV should back off. Eve and Lucy hate the idea but Kevin says that DV doesn't know that they have realized that what happened to him and Eve is connected to what's going on with Scott and Lucy. They'd all have to break up so Kevin and Lucy could pretend to get back together. Lucy and Eve agree that they don't like this idea much.
Joe, Matt and Karen are eating at the Recovery Room and Chris and Rachel are at a different table. Chris and Rachel discuss Christina; he has told Rachel the baby is real and who she is. They try to decide how to let Julie know she knows. Chris wants to just tell her but Rachel thinks they should wait until Julie told her on her own. Chris has ordered champagne and says he never had a bachelor party. Rachel asks if she should be jumping out of a cake. Chris and the 3 at the other table start to chat and Chris told them he and Julie are married - just as Frank comes out of the men's room to overhear. Chris went over to Frank and sits down with him at the bar asking if he's going to buy him a beer. NO! Chris suggests that Frank is jealous that he married his ex-girlfriend. Frank says no; he just hopes she stabs him in his sleep on their honeymoon. Rachel comes over and Chris introduces her to Frank, the black sheep of the family. Rachel, while flirting shamelessly, told Franks she is Julie's shrink and asks what it will take to bring him around. He told her it won't happen; Julie is guilty of the murders, period.
Back at the lighthouse, the four are still debating Kevin's plan. Lucy can't resist torturing Eve a bit with the fact that it's not out of the realm of possibility that Kevin might comfort her if she and Scott broke up. Scott told them to stop. Eve feels too much could go wrong and Scott agrees. They continue the debate and Scott brought up the children - they can't be expected to "get it" and a breakup would jeopardize the adoption of Christina. Kevin suggests that the kids stay hidden - and out of the situation - until it's over. Lucy says she won't lose her baby over it.
At the Recovery Room, Joe approaches Frank and asks if he doesn't have somewhere else to hang out since he quit. Joe says Mary doesn't mind him hanging out there and had, in fact, asked him to come back to work there. Joe says he wouldn't do that though because it would involve sacrifice. Frank isn't in the mood for Joe's preaching. Is he in the mood to get knocked off his bar stool? Rachel chats with the residents about the Chief Resident position which is now up for grabs. Gail has asked Rachel to take her place on the review committee since it would be a conflict of interest with Karen being her granddaughter. Joe returns to the table and asks what Rachel was talking about. They tell him. They all joke about who will win. Rachel and Chris are discussing the position too. Chris says Eve has it locked. He says Karen doesn't have it in her but Rachel disagrees. Helping Scott's daughter get a job she wants can only be useful to them especially when Julie wants her baby back. Next, she wants to get on Frank's good side. She's figured out that Frank is Christina's father and believes he will too and soon. She says he probably doesn't even want a baby but Chris told her he loves children. Rachel says that could be a problem but that they will have to deal with any conflicts that come up. Chris wonder why Rachel is so devoted to Julie's case. She tells him that, like him, she likes to succeed.
Back at the lighthouse (again) the debate continues. Lucy can't lose the baby. Kevin says he will call Mac and try to arrange it so that it's "official" and thereby, won't mess things up with the adoption. If that works out, Lucy is in.
Joe and Karen are still at the Recovery Room and still discussing the job. Joe offers to drop out if Karen really wants it. She say no, she wants to get it on her own. They make a bet for "services" as to who will win.
Rachel went to get some coffee to go and to strike up conversation with Frank. She really flirts up a storm and gives him her card suggesting that they get together. He doesn't need a shrink (HA!) so she suggests that they find "something else" to do. Eve and Kevin talk about her child and how she wonders if he's alive and DV has had him all these years or if it's just another mind game. Kevin promises they'll figure it out. She hates the plan and says if it were real, she'd jump off a bridge. He says it's not real. He rubs her shoulders and she makes him promise not to do that for Lucy. They smooch.
Lucy and Scott at home are talking to Serena on the phone. Lucy hate their plan too and doesn't know if she can do it. They kiss and Scott gets a mental image of Lucy and DV and pulls away. Lucy told him it's DV putting them there. Scott says that's how they'll do it; they'll let DV think his tricks are working and that that's why they break up. They hug.

Eve and her suitcase go into Joe and Karen's bedroom… that is, the on call room. Chris comes in and asks about the extra clothes. She tries to explain it as a handy change of clothes for double shifts, he doesn't buy it. She says she moved out of the lighthouse, he asks if they broke up. She says "It seems like it" (notice lack of an outright lie). Eve told him the story of the break-ups. Chris is sympathetic, the way he only is with Eve and Christina (though bits of it are slipping out with Julie). He opines that there may have been more instances of cheating than this single incident. She told him it was a one time only thing. She told him to go ahead and gloat, he declines. He told her he knows what it feels like to see someone you love in the arms of another. She apologizes for not being more of a friend to him when he married Julie. (These two are so cute together.) Chris puts Kevin down, Eve defends him, much to Chris' chagrin. Chris thinks it's out of character to cheat on her, unless he was truly in love with his ex (unlike Chris as Chris points out). Eve talks about moving into an hotel, Chris asks her to move back in with him. Eve doesn't want to disrupt his life, but Chris is able to convince her. But Eve wants to know what his new bride will think about their living arrangements.
Rachel went to see Julie. Julie is perky and enthusiastic. Rachel told her they have to get the doctor who declared her incompetent on their side. Julie is all for it - the sooner she gets out, the sooner she can start her life with Chris. Rachel is glad to see she's so up. Julie apologizes about bringing up Rachel's mom - Rachel admits that talking about her mom is painful. Julie feels closer to Rachel now. Rachel would like Julie to see Rachel as her new mother. Rachel explains that it's okay in psycho- therapy to think of your therapist that way. Rachel wants Julie to talk about her parents when she was younger. Julie wanted attention from her father when she was young, but he was always away. Her mom was at least involved in her life. She told how Nicole always chose what clothes she should buy and wear. She thought Nicole was always right. Rachel wants to know of anything that Nicole wasn't right about. Julie says the dark, Nicole said she couldn't use a nightlight. Rachel told Julie that Nicole molded Julie into what Nicole thought she should be, not what Julie wanted to be (very non-therapeutic - I think Rachel is describing her own mom.) Rachel compares the controlling Nicole to the controlling Cooper. Rachel is going to teach Julie how to use her strengths to overcome her weaknesses. They talk about Julie having babies with Chris and how Julie will treat her daughter differently than she was treated by Nicole. Rachel gives Julie her new phone number and told her that she can call day or night. She gives Julie a homework assignment - to convince herself that she is her own person and can make her own choices. Later, Julie calls Rachel and leaves a message thanking her for leading her to the insights about her mother.
Rachel comes into her darkened apartment, says "Enough darkness" in an anguished voice and tears down a curtain, letting the sun in. (Cryptic cliffhanger)
