At the mansion, despite Annie and JR urging him not to, Scott confesses to Caleb about taking Palmer's nanotech project. Caleb tells Scott he will pay for pretending to be his uncle's friend and then screwing him over. Scott regrets what he did, but Caleb doesn't think he's any better than his weasel cousin. JR declares he didn’t steal anything, but Caleb is leery and vows to prove he knew about it. Two FBI agents walk in and Scott announces he called them. Annie begs Scott not to do this, but he is prepared to confess. JR calls him weak but Scott is ready and the feds cuff him. Annie leaves with Scott and Caleb tells JR they are just getting started. Threats are exchanged about AJ and the nanotech project and Caleb walks out.


Jesse calls Angie at the hospital to make lunch plans. After Angie hangs up, Natalia approaches her stepmother to question her about a patient, but Angie knows she wants to talk about more than that. Natalia says she doesn’t appreciate her talking about her and Brot when nothing is going on. Angie believes there is, based on her tone. Natalia admits she likes Brot, but she is his superior, which makes it tricky. Angie thinks she should talk to Jesse and follow protocol regarding this. Natalia says it isn't that serious so there's no need. Angie wonders if there's ever been anyone serious or if she has ever been in love. Natalia doesn't know. She's been busy with her career and before that, she had her mother to take care of. Angie thinks she might just be afraid to give her heart to someone and urges her to take a chance.


Back at the station, Brot asks Jesse about the detective's exam. Jesse reminds him he hasn't been on the force that long and assumes Brot doesn't like being bossed around by Natalia. Brot admires Natalia, but he wants to be where she is. Jesse knows he will one day, but he wonders what will happen to his professional relationship with Natalia if he does get the promotion. Jesse points out that Natalia is competitive and it might be different if they are equals again. Brot thinks it's time he's earned Natalia's respect. Natalia enters the station and talks with Brot privately. They start to discuss their relationship, but then they get word about Scott, as he is brought in. Annie also walks in and heads towards the interrogation room. She asks the feds for a minute alone with her husband, but he wants her to go home. She wonders if he is trying to get back at her by throwing his life away. Scott isn't trying to destroy himself – he's trying to save himself. He stole the nanotech project to prove himself to her, but he's been losing himself ever since then.

Jesse visits Angie at the hospital who is reading a baby book in Braille. He suggests they go home for lunch.


At home, Jesse and Angie enjoy a meal that Jesse prepared for them. Jesse gets a call from Angie's gynecologist who tells him it's time for Angie to make her amniocentesis appointment.


At Krystal's, Damon does some work for Liza as Colby walks in questioning her mother. She assumes she hired Damon to keep tabs on her and Tad. Damon returns from making copies and Liza questions Colby about her life, but Colby still isn't ready to welcome her back with open arms. Colby and Damon sit at the bar and eat. Colby tells him about the drama at the mansion with JR and Annie.


Krystal meets Jack at the courthouse. He thanks her for her help and explains how difficult it is to talk to Erica about Greenlee. As they go over the case, Liza and Damon approach. Liza and Jack get into it as Caleb enters the courthouse. Liza walks away and Caleb expresses his understanding of Jack's plight. Caleb tells him he's working on getting Cortlandt back and he wants Erica to run it with him.

JR bursts into Krystal's and tells his mother-in-law to make it clear he won't let Marissa take his son. Krystal wants him to calm down and tells him he's making it worse. JR mentions something about getting sent away and tells Krystal he needs to see his son.


JR heads over to the police station and Scott tells him their family is out of control and he is doing what would make his father proud. Natalia walks in and Scott says he is ready to put his statement in writing. After doing so, Scott assures Annie and JR he didn't implicate them for the sake of their kids. He promises there will be a price though because Chandler will take a huge hit and they will live with the guilt of destroying the family. Annie apologizes to Scott as he is led away. JR tells Annie he will save Chandler and get his son back. He adds now that Scott is gone, Annie doesn’t have any more excuses for them not to be together.
