At Crimson Lights, Chloe drank coffee with her mom while she waited to see Kevin at the hospital. Esther praised Chloe's compassion for Jana's situation, but Chloe said she just wanted Jana to recover quickly. Chloe added that she and Kevin could move on with their lives as soon as Jana recuperated.
After Chloe returned to the coffeehouse from her visit with Daniel and Kevin, she told her mom that Daniel had been released from the hospital. Esther offered to help Kevin and Chloe with their clandestine romance by providing cover stories. Chloe explained that hiding wouldn't be necessary much longer because Jana was about to learn that she and Kevin were no longer married.
Kevin was in a hurry to leave his apartment to meet up with Chloe, but Jana feigned a headache and begged him to stay. Kevin said he needed to check on Daniel and reminded Jana that her psychologist would arrive shortly. Before Kevin walked out, Jana told him she loved him. Kevin merely replied, "Okay."
Kevin ran into the psychologist in the hallway and pleaded with her to move things along with Jana because pretending to be married to her was hell. Jana pressed her ear to the door and overheard Kevin's comment. The psychologist told Kevin she would test the waters to see if Jana might be ready to face the truth. Kevin explained that Jana was no longer part of his life.
Jana became upset when she told her psychologist that her captors had locked her inside a cage. Jana stared at the ceiling as she recalled her nightmare with Sheila's children, Ryder and Daisy. Jana told the psychologist that she might not recall everything, but she insisted that Kevin's love had kept her alive through her ordeal. Jana maintained that she and Kevin had an unbreakable, powerful, and spiritual bond.
The psychologist asked Jana if her relationship with Kevin might have shifted more than she realized. Jana emphatically insisted that she and Kevin were two halves of a whole. Jana added that she and Kevin drew strength from each another. She cried that she wouldn't have survived her ordeal without Kevin.
At the Chancellor mansion, Nina entreated Christine to let Chance know about the serious issues with Ronan's health. Christine warned that Chance's life could be endangered if she did. Christine said she could contact Chance, but she first wanted to discuss the matter with Ronan. Nina explained that Ronan had seemed hopeful when she told him she was being tested as a possible organ-donor match. She begged Christine not to take away Ronan's only hope to find a matching donor.
Heather learned that Chance was alive after she pressured Ronan to reveal the truth about what had happened the day of the shooting. Ronan yelled, "Because of you, we're all screwed." Tears welled in Heather's eyes, and she cried, "He's alive. Chance is alive." Heather realized that Chance was in Witness Protection. Heather was devastated when Ronan admitted that Chance didn't want her to know he was alive.
Heather sobbed quietly as Ronan explained that Chance's goal had been to protect people, so few knew the truth. Nina and Christine arrived and were stunned when Heather admitted knowing that Chance was alive. Christine was livid and reminded Ronan that his job was to control information. Nina maintained that their top priority was keeping Chance safe. Christine blasted Ronan for not telling her about his medical condition.
Nina sadly announced that she wasn't a match and could not be Ronan's organ donor. Nina begged Ronan to let Chance be tested. Ronan quickly refused. Christine warned that other lives, in addition to Chance's, would be at stake. Heather insisted that Chance would want to help. Nina explained that Chance had scribbled notes in the margins of her book, so she knew he'd wanted to find his brother.
After Nina and Heather stepped out, Ronan admitted to Christine that he'd screwed up. Christine replied, "Yeah, and this changes everything." Ronan blamed Christine for Heather's insatiable inquisitiveness because Heather had been told that Ronan was with the FBI. Ronan insisted that his illness was being treated. Christine said that undergoing treatment wasn't the same as seeking a cure because he needed a liver transplant.
Christine questioned Ronan's judgment after she accused him of being personally involved with Heather. Ronan insisted that his relationship with Heather was over. Christine refused to back down and relieved him of active duty. Christine admitted that Ronan was the best man on her team, but she added that she couldn't allow her personal feelings to cloud her decisions.
In the hallway, Heather told Nina she knew that it had been Chance's decision not to let her know he was alive. Nina tried to comfort Heather and told her that it couldn't be easy for Chance to live a secret life. Nina said that Chance hadn't contacted her because he always played by the rules. Nina insisted she would have played by the rules, too, if Chance hadn't become ill.
Nina told Heather that she had a right to grieve because Chance was still away. Nina explained that circumstances for Chance wouldn't change even if he could help Ronan. Nina and Heather returned to the office just after Christine fired Ronan. Heather quickly accepted blame. Before Ronan left in a huff, he warned Heather to keep her mouth shut. Nina, terrified, asked Christine why she had fired Ronan because he would assuredly leave town and have no one to look after him.
At the hospital, with Phyllis at his side, Daniel told a police officer that Daisy had been driving Jana's car. Daniel said that Daisy had been screaming at him about something. Daniel shook his head and said he regretted that he couldn't recall everything that had happened. Phyllis, fiercely protective, suggested the officer give Daniel time to recover.
Chloe arrived to visit Daniel and told him that Jana had supposedly forgotten the past year of her life. Phyllis and Daniel were astonished to learn that doctors had enlisted Kevin to pretend he and Jana were still married. Kevin arrived and learned that Daniel couldn't recall what had happened with Daisy. Phyllis reminded Daniel that his goal was to get better and let the authorities worry about Daisy.
Daniel told Kevin that Chloe had filled them in about Jana. Kevin said he felt bad for Jana because her memories of their marriage were real. Kevin placed his arm around Chloe and explained that he also didn't want to feel guilty about the good things in his life. Phyllis and Daniel congratulated the couple. Before Chloe and Kevin left, Kevin assured his friends and Chloe that his days as a make-believe husband would soon end.
After Daniel's doctor released him from the hospital, Phyllis helped Daniel hobble into his apartment. Daniel complained that his mother was smothering him. Daniel spotted Daisy's things on the sofa and said he'd hoped they would have sparked a memory. Phyllis offered to stay, but Daniel insisted the doctor wouldn't have released him had he not been capable of staying alone.
Phyllis begged Daniel to let her do something for him, and she reminded her son that she'd almost lost him. Phyllis sobbed and told Daniel she didn't know what she would have done without him. Phyllis promised Daniel that his memories would return. Daniel told his mom he hoped that Daisy's baby had a home far away from her crazy mother. After Phyllis left, Daniel opened his sketchbook and gazed at a drawing of an infant he'd made.
Kevin and Chloe rendezvoused in Kevin's car, which he had parked in a dark, secluded corner of the hospital's parking garage. Kevin and Chloe groped each other and kissed in the backseat. Chloe told Kevin that a car wasn't an appropriate place for them to make love for the first time.
Kevin told Chloe that he should return home because Jana's psychologist was about to determine if Jana was ready to learn the truth. Chloe told Kevin that waiting was hard, but admitted that she got her kicks from sneaking around to be with him. Kevin smiled and said they'd find a new way to get their kicks after Jana moved on.
After the psychologist stepped out of Kevin's apartment, Kevin returned and asked if he was a free man. The psychologist explained that Jana firmly believed that the only thing keeping her sane was her connection to him. Jana listened through the door and breathed a sigh of relief.
At Victoria and Billy's house, Victoria was stunned to learn that the infant girl Billy cradled in his arms was their baby. Victoria coyly admired the baby's delicate features. Billy insisted that the baby belonged to them, but Victoria refused to hold the baby until Billy explained how he could have obtained the child so quickly. Billy insisted the facilitator had told him that the family slated to adopt the baby hadn't been able to take her.
Billy asked Victoria if she would rather have the baby's fate be decided by callous bureaucrats who punched a clock. After Victoria handed Billy a blanket for the baby, she stepped back and stood with her arms folded at her waist. Victoria ventured near the baby and gazed at the sleeping infant. Victoria told Billy that something didn't feel right. Billy admitted taking shortcuts, but he showed the baby's birth certificate to Victoria and insisted he'd do it all over again if he had to.
Billy placed his arm around Victoria and told her the only thing missing was a mom and dad to love the baby. As Billy fed the baby a bottle, he told Victoria that friends wouldn't question the quick arrival of the baby if they said they'd just gotten lucky. Victoria said the baby might someday want to know who her parents were. Billy said they'd tell the baby what she needed to know when she needed to know it.
Victoria refused to back down and told Billy she wanted to know about the baby's parents. Billy told Victoria that if she didn't want the infant, he'd take the child back. Victoria paced nervously as Billy continued feeding the infant. Victoria explained that she feared losing the baby after falling in love with her.
Victoria cried to Billy that someone might show up claiming that letting the child go had been a mistake. Billy promised Victoria it wouldn't happen. Billy insisted that the baby was theirs and needed their love. The baby began fussing and crying. Victoria took the baby from Billy's arms. As Victoria rocked the baby, she said soothingly, "It's okay. Mama's got you now."
