Zoe talks about dressing up in her mother's clothes and her father ripping them off of her. That relationship made her afraid of how others would react to her. Jenny begins talking about the support system that they will all need though the process. Zoe talks about Bianca's support. "Maybe it is love that will help us become who we are," Jenny says. The group dismisses and Zoe comes out to talk to Bianca. "For the first time in my life I realize I'm not alone," she says.

Erica can't believe what she is hearing but instead of confronting them, she leaves the building. "This is your last chance to call your own shot," Josh says. Krystal arrives, telling them that she covered for little A's slip up the night before. She stuns Babe with JR's apparent change of heart. Before she can react, Josh suggests this is the perfect opportunity for them! They should leave Krystal in the dark about when the kidnapping will take place so that she can deny any knowledge to JR. With his change of heart, Josh believes a real reaction from Krystal will keep JR from turning on her. "I'm in if you want," Krystal says before asking Josh to leave. "You donít want to run," Krystal says when they are alone. She realizes that Babe is only considering running to protect Krystal from Adam's fury. Krystal tells Babe she is telling Adam the truth and she will deal with the consequences! "The more I think about it, the only way that I will ever be free of JR is to disappear," Babe says, stopping her mother. Crying, Babe makes her decision - to leave with Josh! Krystal holds her for a moment as she cries and then quickly leaves the room. Josh comes back, asking Babe what her decision is. She tells him she is ready to run.

Having fun, he takes JR and little A for ice cream. Later, they arrive at the Chandler manse with ice cream dripping from their faces. Tad realizes that JR is trying to distract him from his sadness. JR admits it and tells him that he is only trying to help. "What do you say you help me out and I help you out?" JR asks. Tad agrees as Erica walks in. She tells them to sit down because she has big news. "Babe is alive," she says, leaving the men in shock!
