Babe, happy and relived to be home, can't let go of little Adam. Happy, she says, to be home with her son and JR. Adam is put down for a nap and Babe & JR talk about their lives, their future. Babe remains cold to JR though how it's quite ironic that she almost lost her life now when it wasn't that long ago he tried to rid himself of her. JR pours his heart out, how it was killing him to think of never holding her again, never being a family. Babe reaches out to kiss him and JR pulls back to ask her about Josh.
Babe, confused at the rejected kiss, asking why he'd bring up Josh right now. He tells Babe that Josh is using her, playing her. He asks for himself, for Adam, for their family, to kick Josh out of her life. Babe refuses, saying he's the only real friend she has right now. Telling JR why should she bail on Josh, just because he doesn't like that you're a free man when I lied to keep you out of jail? She then tells JR that Josh is in love with her. JR, horrified, tells her that's all the more reason to get him out of their lives. That Josh won't just settle for friendship. Babe tells JR that he has to trust her! HER! His wife!
JR approaches a sleeping Babe in Josh's arms. Babe slowly awakes and tries to focus. As soon as she realizes what's happening, she jumps into JR's arms.
Jamie and Julia accuse Josh of kidnapping Babe and demand answers. Josh remains arrogant. But Babe chimes in telling them if it wasn't for Josh, she'd be dead. He saved her from drowing. JR reminds her if it wasn't for Josh, she wouldn't even be here.
Josh scowls back telling JR that he only wanted to ...borrow... JR's wife. Accuses JR as the one who wanted to kill Babe.
JR glares back and Julia and Jamie continue to berate Josh telling him they should just leave his sorry soul on the island to rot. But Babe pleads to them to take Josh as well. Josh replies sweetly, ...Only for you Babe....
On the boat, Babe confronts JR about playing the CD of Madden. JR tells her the only thing he's sorry for is that his mother was arrested.
JR continues to yell with exhaustion for Babe! Babe! He looks on at Jamie proclaiming that Jamie would rather he bag the search for his wife. But he refuses, still yelling he spots something in the water. JR gasps oh no and jumps into the water. Jamie screams after JR to get back in the boat and starts to undress to go in after him.
Julia and Jamie pull JR into the boat, unconscious and not breathing. After several minutes of panic, they revive him. JR, shivering and breathless, insists he'll find his wife alive. Jamie tells him to rest, that he'll keep a lookout all night, he promises JR. If Jamie finds anything, he'll wake JR immediately.
Julia lays out a bed on the bench for JR. She gets him warm and comfortable and assures him they'll keep looking.
Jamie looks on at Julia after JR falls into a restless sleep. Shaking his head, he smartly asks her how lucky she is to have this kind of night. Julia replies, "Pretty lucky."
JR dreams they recovered Josh and got him on the boat alive. "She's dead JR," says Josh. "Dead." Josh goes on to JR, "Just like you lost your mother, Babe is dead too. You don't deserve anyone JR."
Julia, noticing JR wincing, startles him awake, telling him the coast guard found a little island.
