Thorne wonders if he can ever forgive Taylor, and Shane leaves town!
Stephanie visits Thorne who is just putting Alley down to sleep. When he returns, he tells her that he doesn't know if he can let go of what happened, and wonders if he and Taylor's relationship is doomed from the start. Stephanie asks him if he plans on leaving Taylor, telling tells him that Alley has transferred all of her feelings over to Taylor. Thorne says he doesn't know how Alley will react when one day someone tells her that Taylor is responsible for her mother's death! Stephanie tells him, “Whatever you decide I'll support, but the three of you can face the truth when the time comes!”
Taylor talks to an officer at jail, telling her that Shane can get her off if he wants to, but she regrets the day she let him move into her house. The officer tells her that she can't worry about things on the outside “They'll always drive you nuts."
Taylor looks at the picture that Alley drew for her and re-reads the note to herself “I miss you too Alley,” Taylor thinks back playing London bridge with Thorne and Alley. At the same time Thorne thinks back to the same event, picks up a picture of Darla, and asks her what to do.
Alarmed at how Harry and Hector have just beaten Shane, Phoebe tells them that they shouldn't have treated him that way, because now he won't testify. Hector tells Phoebe that Shane has to testify, because he was subpoenaed. Harry and Hector have called the police, and plan on filing charges against Shane.
Detective Baker shows up and Harry tells him that Shane attacked him and Phoebe. Phoebe tells the detective that she isn't going to press charges but says, “we need to find Shane today. Mom's freedom depends on it!”
Lt. Baker shows up Shane's house. He knocks on the door, and when nobody answers, he tells his men to knock the door down. The men go inside and look for Shane.
Outside Phoebe remarks to Harry that she hopes Shane hasn't already left town. Baker comes outside and tells them that he's gone. As they talk, Baker receives a phone call from a man who claims he has Shane at a convenience store nearby. The voice of the man on the phone however is Shane's. Baker leaves to go to the convenience store, leaving Harry and Phoebe outside his apartment. As the camera pans out, we see Shane is sitting on top of his building.
Baker tells Harry and Phoebe he needs someone to identify Shane. Harry insists on going, and leaves Phoebe along in Shane's apartment. After they leave, Shane comes in the apartment, closing the door. Shane tells her that all he ever wanted to do for her was help her. He thought everything would change, but all she ever saw him was, was a homeless man. Shane tells her that he would have made her happy. Shane tells her that all he wanted was her, but now he is leaving. Phoebe tells him that she needs him, and he responds, “Not the way I want you to, all I ever wanted was to love you”. Shane leaves, as a tearful Phoebe yells for him to stop.
