Phyllis went by the Carlton's and woke Jack up. He told her about the fire and Colleen and she reacted with shock and concern. She asked about Ashley and he told her she slept on the way home from the gala, but later came downstairs and obviously didn't remember what had happened. Just then, Ashley came downstairs again and asked what Jack was still doing there. Jack told her he wanted to stay until Brad got home, and told her about the fire. Ashley was very concerned about Colleen, but eventually began questioning them again as to why Jack was still there.
As Paul and Chris were eating breakfast, and Paul told her there was something he wanted to ask her. Just then, the doorbell rang and Michael came on in. He apologized for interrupting and told them he heard through the grapevine that Chris was about to be offered a position in the District Attorney's office. He said he came to tell her, but also to remind her she would make much less money than she does with him, and encouraged her to stay at the firm. She told him the position would make her a more well-rounded attorney, and that she would have to consider it. Before getting up to leave, he told her again he didn't want her to leave their firm, and that he didn't feel she would be happy sending people off to jail, especially in light of the situation she had just gone through. After he left, Paul encouraged her to consider the offer if she ended up getting up. She asked him what he was about to say before Michael interrupted, and they sat down on the couch to talk. He told her he wanted to talk about their living arrangements. She assumed he meant he was going to move out, and told him she had gotten used to him being there with her. He told her no, on the contrary, he didn't want to move out at all. In fact, he blurted out that they should just get married again. Not thinking he was serious, she started laughing.
Brad and J.T. were glad to hear the news from the doctor that Colleen was going to be all right. As the doctor left the room, she woke up and was glad to see them both. J.T. left the two alone, and Brad began to cry and hold Colleen. She asked him what had happened to her-she couldn't remember very clearly. Brad recounted what had happened and asked if she remembered who had done this. At that point, J.T. came back in and Brad got up to leave. She and J.T. talked more about the fire, and he told her he strongly suspected Kevin had something to do with it. Colleen said she couldn't remember seeing him there and J.T. told her to rest and they would talk more about it later. Colleen commented he and Brad seemed to be getting along better and J.T. told her they had bonded. She asked how he found her, and he told her he found her locket outside of the cooler. With that, he gave it back to her and held her in the hospital bed.
At the end of the show, Ashley cornered Brad to ask him why everyone was treating her like a China doll. He told her he was exhausted and asked if they could talk about it later, but she pushed until he relented. He sat her down and told her he knew she had been very depressed, and that he would do anything to help her through it. She told him she felt she was handling it quite well, and questioned him when he disagreed. As he began to explain himself, she interrupted him, saying she heard the baby crying. He said he didn't hear Abby, and she said, no, it was Robert who was crying before getting up.
