At the prison, Lee takes a call from Ben and tells him he’ll be getting a new heart tonight. Jenn steals a cell phone and gasps at hearing Ben’s name. She uses it, telling Lee that she won’t go to the police. In fact, she has a thing for Ben and thinks finding organs for him is a good thing. As she talks, she’s texting with the cell, behind her back. Suddenly, the phone beeps and Lee calls Jennifer a liar. She grabs her and throws her across the room and the phone smashes, as does Jennifer’s head. Later, Jennifer wakes up strapped to a gurney. She begs Lee not to do this to her. Lee quotes Lord Byron. "Maid of Athens, ere we part, give, oh give me back my heart!" Lee puts her under while she tells a nurse that it’s a pot of gold. Later, nursie tells Lee that the heart’s on the way to the hospital.

In the waiting room, Stefano tells EJ that they need to take care of things tonight but EJ’s ambivalent. He listens in on Sami talking to Rafe about how much Johnny and the other kids need him. Later, Stefano calls to order a handmade doll for Sydney. He tells EJ they’re going to spoil her like crazy on her birthday. EJ laughs. Back inside Rafe’s room, Sami talks to him and kisses his face. She loves him and is confident he loves and respects this ‘crazy woman.’ Rafe comes to and she apologizes for the accident. He tells her it’s okay and they profess their love for one another and kiss.
