Jessica asks Kay if she caused that fire. Kay replied that she had nothing to do with it. She stated that she didn't want Charity dead, she just didn't want her to remember her past. Charity comes to, and thanks Miguel for saving her life again. She has her memory back. Kay realizes that she will never get Miguel, now. Tabitha flees after Charity regains consciousness.
