At Fusion, Amanda worries that Erica will hate her photos. She is stunned when Erica turns and tells her she's a disappointment. It turns out Erica is referring to her lack of confidence. She makes Amanda declare herself to be a star. Erica puts Randi in charge of Amanda's fan mail, warning Amanda never to respond to a fan online again. Jack comes in to check on Erica, who thanks him for supporting her yesterday. He asks her to go for dinner and she hugs him.

Greenlee and David are at home. She tells him now that Ryan has written her off, David is off the hook. David muses that he's content with the way things are, but Greenlee thinks he deserves more. He says they make a great team, and wonders if she'd like to stick it out. She says she has nowhere else to go, and they grin at each other. They talk about Fusion, David encourages Greenlee to beat Erica. They make plans for dinner that night, and David says he's off to meet with a hospital board member to see about his job.

Annie is alone in bed at the Chandler Mansion. She dreams of JR proposing to her!

Downstairs at the Chandler Mansion, JR tells Marissa that his father didn't come home last night, and neither did Brooke! She suggests that he call him, but JR says he's not worried as long as he's with Brooke. Marissa is upset, saying Adam is married! She also thinks he should back off on Annie and stay out of their business. JR tells her she is sick of her policing him. He reminds her he's not sick anymore and can take care of himself. Marissa stalks out, and Annie comes in. JR tells her Adam was out with Brooke all night. Annie begins to strategize, telling JR that he needs her as much as she needs him. She suggests that they help each other save their marriages and enjoy each other on the side, adding that Marissa doesn't get him like she does.

Adam and Brooke giggle and chat in the park about staying out all night. Brooke says she may have told him she loves him but it doesn't change anything, she won't break up his marriage. Adam says he loves her, and it's time for proof! He says he won't make her compromise her values. Adam tells her he wants to make her proud, and wants her wishes to be fulfilled, that's why he's letting her go. Brooke assures him it's the right thing, to honor his wedding vows. Adam notes it feels wrong. Brooke says she'll cherish this time forever, and now it's time to move on. They kiss deeply. Brooke leaves to clear out of the mansion, and Stuart appears to Adam. He advises him to examine what is in his heart. Stuart says he will always love him, he didn't mean to shoot him after all, and he and Brooke will always remain in Adam's heart.

At the hospital, Angie coaches Frankie and Jake on their roles in her plan to deal with David. They are amazed she came up with this idea. She says if David played fair, she would too.

Greenlee arrives at Fusion in time to see Jack and Erica getting close. Jack leaves, and Erica asks Greenlee if she slept well after attacking poor Kendall. Greenlee refuses to discuss it. Erica wants to move up the deadline for the competition. Greenlee agrees. They realize that they must launch together if it's to be fair. Randi and Amanda walk up. Randi says Ciro canceled. Erica realizes that Greenlee booked him out from under her. Greenlee gloats, but Erica gets a phone call and dashes out.

David walks into ConFusion, where he is greeted by Jake, Frankie, and Angie, who are throwing him a farewell party! He quickly cops on that his meeting with the board member was a farce. Angie announces that his medical license has been revoked, and they toast! Amanda and Randi join Frankie and Jake at the bar. Jake teases Amanda about not wearing her wedding ring. She says she hates taking it off for the shoots. After a bit of kissing, Jake and Frankie leave. Randi asks Amanda why she didn't tell Jake the truth about the rings. Amanda says she didn't want him to worry. Greenlee walks in and spots David sitting alone. He shows her the paper saying he cannot practice medicine. David tells Greenlee not to worry about it, he's decided to buy the hospital!

Brooke returns to the Chandler Mansion, and tells JR that she is leaving. He protests, saying Adam loves her. Brooke tells him she won't break up his marriage, she has to go. JR is dismayed, but lets her go upstairs. Annie appears and grills JR about Brooke, when she won't stop, JR kisses her, saying he is trying to get Brooke out of the house so they can be alone. Annie tells him she'll wait upstairs. JR wipes off the kiss. Brooke comes down and asks JR to wait a bit, and then tell Adam she left town. She asks him to take good care of his father, then goes. Annie reappears and JR tells her Brooke left town so as not to incinerate her marriage. He wants Annie to give Adam up. She counters that if JR dumps Marissa, she'll let Adam go. JR hisses that he doesn't want her, he never did, he set her up!

Erica meets Brooke in the park. Brooke fills her in on what is going on, and asks her to use her contacts to fill her position at Tempo. Brooke tells Erica that Adam is going to need a friend. She breaks down as she says he's not as strong as he used to be. Erica reassures Brook, and offers her own plane for her use. Brooke brings up Jack, and Erica with a half-smile says, "Brooke, shut up and take the flight." Brooke smiles back.

Back at Fusion, Amanda and Randi puzzle over her missing wedding ring, and another message from Amandafan - Amanda's photo covered in kisses - appears on the computer screen.

Annie and JR fight their way upstairs into her room, where he tells her he videotaped their romp in Washington, and only destroyed it because Marissa caught on that he was spying on someone. Annie screams that he is sick and will never get away with this, but their animosity changes to passion and they start doffing their clothes. Just then, Adam walks in!
