At the mansion, AJ asks Marissa and Bianca what's wrong with his dad. JR stumbles in with a drink in his hand and dares Marissa to tell their son the truth. Marissa wants to talk privately, but JR is eager to talk with AJ. He tells AJ it's not so much the birds and bees, but the birds and the birds. Marissa wants JR to back off and as he starts to walk away, he falls over AJ's chair. JR gets up, grabs his drink and makes his exit. Bianca leaves to talk to him, as Marissa tries to explain things to AJ. She tells him they are still a family, just a different kind because she loves Bianca. AJ understands because he has friends who have two moms and two dads.

Bianca finds JR drinking outside. She rips into him for turning to booze because he feels sorry for himself. He gets off some caustic remarks about her going after the women in his life, but then screams that he knows he screwed up. Bianca corrects him by saying he had nothing to do with it.

Bianca and JR return to the mansion. JR thinks AJ needs some time with his dad and suggests they play catch. AJ doesn't want to and cowers next to his mother. JR grabs his keys, ready to leave, but Marissa won't let him. JR says he'll walk instead and leaves.

Cara returns home to Tad and tells him Kathy thought she saw Dixie. Cara thinks she misses knowing her mother and suggests Tad isn't ready to give her up either. After Tad goes through Dixie's diary, he says he knows how to say goodbye.

Tad gathers Krystal, Liza, Opal and Cara at Krystal's to tell them he needs to publicly get rid of the things he's been holding on to connecting him to Dixie. JR silently shows up as Tad recalls how meeting Dixie and JR changed everything for him. He says wants to make sure JR knows he is his son no matter how many mistakes he makes. JR grows pensive and leaves. After more eulogizing, Tad tells Cara she is the reason he can say goodbye to Dixie.

Erica tells Jane in her room that she wants to see who she used to be before the transformation. Jane shows her a photo and recalls her mother telling her how ugly she was. Erica thinks otherwise and urges her not to let her mother win. Erica tells Jane how remarkable she is considering all she's accomplished with her kidnapping. She wants her to own who she is and be Jane Campbell. Erica thinks it's time for Jane be out in the world as herself and that it's time for her to go home. Jane doesn't know how she'll do that alone, but Ben vows he'll be there for her. Jane then worries she'll end up on prison, but Erica promises she won't press charges. Ben says they'll take her back to Pine Valley, but they have to blindfold her so she doesn't know how to get back there.

David calls Ben from Dixie's room and leaves an angry message relaying that she's missing.

Jesse brings Angie to the hospital for a consultation with a surgeon that David set up. Jesse is worried about David's involvement, but Angie assures her husband Hayward has earned her trust. David frantically runs into the hospital asking a nurse if a Jane Doe has been admitted. Jesse and Angie find him and wonder why he's late to their appointment. He tells them they had to reschedule it and urgently walks away. A nurse approaches Jesse and Angie saying the surgeon wondered why they didn't show up to their appointment. Jesse knew David couldn't be trusted.

Angie sits in the park alone until Jesse can join her. Dixie walks by her and Angie calls out asking who's there. She says she's a doctor and can help, which makes Dixie back off. Later, as JR wanders the park drunk, he sees Dixie passed out next to a bench.

Jack punches David when he sees him at ConFusion. Jesse breaks them up and then Erica walks in. David kisses her, but she bites him. Erica embraces Jack and tries to explain what happened with Jane and Ben. Jack doesn’t think she's making any sense, so Erica demands that David tell the truth. Instead, David suggests Erica needs real help. Erica goes for his throat.
