Tad assures Cara at home he's still committed to their marriage despite Dixie being back. Cara doesn’t want him worrying about her while he figures out where he and Dixie stand. Tad gets a call from Brot and learns that JR has been released from jail. Cara points out he doesn't even know Dixie is alive. Tad thinks it can wait until they talk more, but Cara says JR's reunion with his mother is important. As she leaves for the hospital, Tad announces that they started this together, so they will finish it together.

A shaken Dixie tells David in the park that he did something horrible. She can't remember what it is though. As she grows more upset, Tad arrives and tells David to back off. Dixie cowers in Tad's arms, as David tells Tad he is the reason Dixie is alive. He kept her away from them so Dixie could recover. Tad accuses him of playing God…again. Tad asks Dixie what exactly happened, but she can't remember. David says it's a good thing Dixie can't remember the pain and trauma. Tad doesn't think a judge will buy his story. David walks away as Dixie tells Tad she wants to see JR. Tad thinks he should prepare him first.

Scott snidely welcomes JR home from jail at the mansion and the cousins exchange barbs. After Scott leaves, upon Madison stopping by, Tad enters. Tad wants JR to come to his house, but JR doesn’t want anymore of his tough love. Tad asks him to stop by after he sobers up. He orders him not to show up drunk again, adding, if he doesn't show up at all, he will regret it for the rest of his life.

Cara runs into Dixie at home and cries as she tells her how great it is that she's back for Tad and Kathy. She leaves for work after grabbing her suitcase and placing her house key on the table. Tad returns without JR, much to Dixie's disappointment. He tries to explain JR's drinking problem, as a stunned JR enters the room.

Jack brings Jane to Kendall's. Kendall is thrown to see Erica's look-a-like and then rails at her for kidnapping her mother. Erica tells Jane no one believed her story so they need her come forward. Jane doesn't want to go to prison, but Erica encourages her to do the right thing. Jesse comes over as Jane agrees to corroborate her story. Jesse is shocked. Jane declares that Ben was her only accomplice, but Erica believes David has to be part of this. Jane insists she didn’t know David before and she has no knowledge of someone else being held where Erica was. Jesse brings up Project Orpheus, but Kendall can't talk about David bringing people back from the brink. She storms out. Erica thinks she's free now since Jane can back up her story, but Jesse reminds her she stabbed David. Jane interrupts and says she stabbed him. When Jesse takes a call, Jack and Erica question Jane about taking the blame for the stabbing. She wants to make up for what she put Erica through. Jesse returns to them and takes Jane away. Once alone, Erica tells Jack she won't stop until she sees David punished. She believes Jane doesn’t know anything about Dixie being held, but she wonders if Ben does. When Jack takes a call, Erica slips out.

Erica confronts David in his office. She warns him Jane confessed to everything and Ben will too once they find him. David warns Erica if she goes to the police she'll never know who else he saved.

Kendall heads over to the hospital and tells Griffin they should be together. Griffin thinks she's too afraid to admit Zach could be alive, so she's latching on to something else. Griffin is just trying to make it easier between them for when she finds out her husband is alive. Kendall says if Zach were alive he would have come back to her by now.

He recognizes who Greenlee really is and asks if Kendall found someone new. Greenlee assures him no one could take his place and that Kendall could never forget him. Zach wants to go home, but he passes out. When she can't wake him up, Greenlee bangs on the door and yells for someone to call David.
