While Rachel continued her quest to cause trouble at the hospital, Lee asked a conflicted Scott to fill a vacant seat on the hospital board. Rachel later learned from Alan that Scott had been offered a seat on the board and that there was still another seat open. In order to serve her own agenda, Rachel tried to flatter Scott into accepting the job. Later, Lucy was able to convince Scott to accept the position. On his first day at home with Frank and Courtney, Neil called Joe and asked him to come over. After Neil admitted he wished things could be like they were before, Joe firmly steered him in Frank's direction and urged him to give Frank a chance. Neil later reached out to Frank as they hung up the basketball hoop in the apartment. Eve surprised Kevin with the news that he got his job back at the hospital and presented him with a new office. Rachel was privately upset about Kevin returning to work.
Scott and Lucy are cuddling in bed, talking about getting up, her psychic powers and his being on the board. He says he needs someone else on the board like him to get things done. Lucy asks who and he says he's looking at her. She likes the idea and jumps in with both feet, Lucy style.
Eve is on the phone at the desk planning a surprise party to celebrate Kevin's reinstatement at the hospital. Kevin approaches and she cuts the call short and chats with him. He suggests they go out tonight but she says they should have a night in. He leaves tossing "partypooper" at her. Kevin comes upon Rachel pushing a nurse to give her Kevin's patient charts. He takes them from her and told her it's nice to see she's still working out her control issues. Exit Kevin. Alan, using the phone at the desk, is approached by Rachel seeking his support for her bid for the Board.
At the desk, Eve invites Matt to the party and he says yes. Lucy and Scott talk about her running for the Board; he says she's a shoe-in but she says he sees her like no one else does. He says yes but he still wants her sitting next to him in the boardroom. Lucy told Eve and Matt she's running. Eve told them about the party and invites them asking that they not tell Chris - she does not want him and "his nutcase of a wife" there.
Chris enters the penthouse to find Julie knitting. When asked she told him she has to do something. She's bored. He says soon she'll have her job *and* Christina and she'll be wishing for some free time. She says she worked her butt of during the strike and, when it's over, all she gets is "see ya." She has to keep busy.
At the Recovery Room, Karen and Joe chat. She asks how he is and he tells her a guy could go crazy waiting for a peer review. She asks what his strategy is and he doesn't really have one. Is he planning to go in there alone? Who will he take, he asks. She told him she was thinking Scott. He's on the Board now - conflict of interest? Joe told her no one can explain what he did and defend him like he himself can. Kevin is in is new office when Lucy stops by. She hugs him joyfully and offers congratulations. He apologizes for not letting her know and she says by tonight everyone will know anyways (LUCY!!). When asked what she means, she says the grapevine, that's it. She told him she's going for the empty seat on the Board and he thinks it's a great idea. Kevin pretends to be a stodgy old board member and tosses questions at her. She plays along with him giving her hints. He says anyone would be lucky to have her in his life. She comments that his reinstatement and her running for the Board is the same. They'll be seeing a lot of each other. He says his fingers are crossed.
Karen is at the desk with Rachel standing by. Rachel asks if she's alright and Karen says she is. Rachel apologizes for coming down on her so hard during the strike. Karen says she's just glad it's over. Rachel adds that it was kind of Karen not to mention that she was the one who supported Karen for her job. Karen says she wanted it and still does. Rachel knows what it's like to want something that bad. She's hoping to be accepted to the Board. Karen agrees to put in a good word with Scott and Lee. She'll speak to them tonight at the party to celebrate Kevin's rehiring.
Mary and Victor are decorating the Recovery Room and chatting about Kevin. Courtney and Frank enter with Neil, who makes a big noise. Victor and Mary pretend to be startled. Joe enters and Neil runs to him for a hug. Neil went with Joe to get a soda and Mary told Frank and Courtney how amazing it is; Neil was so sick! They talk about Frank and Courtney's new place and Neil's room there.
Lucy and Scott chat in the hospital. She has a feeling it's predestined. They have to pick up Serena and get to the party. They stop Eve as she's passing by and Lucy asks what she can bring to the party. Eve says nothing but Lucy persists. Eve assures Lucy she has it covered. Kevin approaches and congratulates Scott on making the Board. Lucy and Scott leave and Eve says she can't imagine anything worse than Lucy on the Board.
Rachel is asking Chris and Julie for their support. Julie says her support won't help. Rachel says she needs all the support she can get. She says she has to go to Kevin's congratulatory party. He got his job back?, Julie asks. Julie is annoyed that they'd rehire Kevin, mad stalker, and not her. All the more reason for Rachel to be on the Board. Chris says he understands why he and Julie aren't invited but Rachel is? Rachel says it wouldn't be a party without her!
Rachel gone, Chris told Julie he's on call tonight. They can have some time together. Dinner, bowling and Lookout Point? Yup. They race for the door.
At the Recovery Room, the party is waiting for Kevin. As Lucy bitches about Eve not arranging to get the guest of honor there, Eve and Kevin enter and walk up behind her. Eve taps her on the shoulder she turn and yells "Surprise." Everyone else follows suit and the party and congratulations begin! Karen arrives and approaches Scott and Lucy about supporting Rachel. Enter the uninvited Rachel who went to Eve and Kevin and apologizes for crashing. She offers congrats. She offers to bury the hatchet and announces she's running for the board. Eve says she's running against Lucy? Lucy asks Rachel. Lucy, approaching, confirms. They wish each other some kind of luck. Lucy then told Lee and Gail she's running. Stunned they say they will talk to her later about it. Karen talks to Scott about Joe and Scott says he can handle it. There's no conflict of interest. Meanwhile, Victor congratulates Kevin again and expresses his pride. Mary toasts the interns for their support during the strike and Courtney seeks pay from Lucy for a volunteer position Lucy says no. Scott worries that Courtney will sue Joe and the hospital.
