Kendall realized that Ricky was not who he seemed to be when he reassured her with the endearment of "sweetheart," which had been used in Zach's letter. Kendall was stunned when she found the original letter that Zach had sent to her and a flash drive in the yacht that she had once shared with Zach.

David discovered that Erica was drinking beer, so he threatened to tell her family if she didn't help him get reinstated at the hospital.
