At the hospital, Grandpa Shawn, Caroline and Bo wait impatiently for changes to Kayla and Steve's state. Billie and Hope arrive to hear the doctor tell them that both Steve and Kayla are responding to stimuli. It's too soon to tell, so he asks them not to get his hopes up, as it could go either way. Just then, Steve opens his eye, much to everyone's surprise! Bo explains to a conscious yet concerned Steve, what happened to he and Kayla and the events leading to getting the experimental drug. He shares that they've all been here all along, supporting him and Steve gets out of bed, touches Kayla's head then wheels his IV over to the window, asking Billie if Stephanie is safe. He calms down, smiling. He tells her he can't believe she is the first person he saw when he woke up and that she means a lot to him. Billie replies that she feels the same and wants him as he is 'now', and will be there until he gets better.
The doctor tells the family that Kayla's fever has spiked. She appears to be worsening while Steve is getting better. Grandpa Shawn asks if there is anything else they can do, and he suggests giving Kayla more of the experimental drug.
In the waiting room, the family agrees to give Kayla more of the experimental drug, even though it could mean she has more side effects. Max and Frankie show up at the hospital and they all agree to have faith and keep praying. Bo takes Max aside, asking him for a second chance for Shawn, not only for him, but for his daughter. Max agrees that Shawn is a hell of a mechanic, but just hired Mimi as a part time book keeper. If Shawn wants his job back, he'll have to find a way to get along with Mimi. He tells Bo he'll try to come to an agreement with Shawn.
Hope comes back to the room with Grandpa Shawn and Caroline. They tell Billie and Steve that Kayla isn't waking up. They're confused, not understanding why Steve is awake but Kayla is still in trouble. The doctor gives more serum to Kayla as they wait things out. Stephanie comes out, thrilled that her father is awake but torn, upset that her mom is not awake yet. Steve comforts an emotional Stephanie, asking her to have faith. She tries, but then Kayla starts seizing and the doctors use defibrillators on her.
Steve and Kayla are in a hospital room, hooked up to oxygen. They were exposed to a biotoxin that is attacking their lungs but will be administering an antidote soon. Bo comes in, asking how they are and Stephanie says, "They're both going to die, and it's all my fault." Bo assures her it's not her fault as she explains what happened to her parents. He goes off to talk to Abe. Billie arrives to lend her support, but is faced by Stephanie, who wants her to get lost. Grandpa Shawn wheels Stephanie to her room, but Caroline stays behind to apologize to Billie, explaining that they all still think of Kayla and Steve as together. Billie understands and Caroline goes off to take care of Steph.
Billie talks to herself, watching an unconcious Kayla and Steve through the glass. She admits that even she can see that Kayla and Steve belong together. She starts to cry as Bo overhears her, telling her he wont' tell them she said so, and hugs her.
Kayla visits Stephanie in the hospital. She's depressed that Max tried to break up with her but couldn't because she hyperventilated. She tells her mom, "I just can't take anymore bad stuff right now." The black gloved person (E.J.) watches the two talk from outside the room. Stephanie asks, "What is wrong with us?" They're in love with men who love others! Kayla is paged and has to leave, but Stephanie thinks it's very strange that someone is trying to page her, thinking it's a set up. She presses her mom not to leave.
Kayla goes into an empty examining room, only to have the door lock shut behind her. She tries to call out but nobody answers her, and when she finds that the phone is dead, she starts to get suspicious. Heavy breathing is heard through the vents, and then she hears someone call her name over and over. She asks them who they are.
At Billie's, Steve tries to explain his relationship with Billie and tells Chelsea she doesn't have to like what's going on but she has to accept it. She then tells him he needs to accept a few things if he's to be with Billie. She asks if he knows that her mom was a drug addict (he does) and asks if he knew that Billie has made porn movies, when a hurt Billie overhears, coming out of the kitchen, telling Chelsea "That's enough!" Steve is disgusted, asking her if she felt powerful telling him that; telling her that everyone deserves a second chance. He tells her people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Just then he gets a frantic call from Stephanie, begging him to come quickly! Steve leaves and Chelsea tells Billie that Steve will never be there for her, and whenever Kayla calls, he will go running, just like he did now!
Steve arrives at the hospital to an anxious Stephanie describing what happened. She asks that he go to exam room #113 and Steve does, unknowingly stepping over a black glove right outside Stephanie's door! Kayla hears Steve pounding on the door. She's thankful he has found her, and once he's in, they hug. He relays to her how Stephanie called him. Kayla is still pretty freaked out as she explains what happened. They both go to the vent and are hit with a toxic smoke. Steve covers Kayla's face, as they go down to the floor, coughing.
Kayla shows up to the hospital, seeing Billie. Kayla is uncomfortable as Billie explains she is there for support. She asks Kayla to fight for Steve. Kayla doesn't believe that she is being honest but Billie explains Steve needs a friend for comfort as he has nobody and if he goes to Kayla there will be strings attached. Just then, Billie gets a phone call about Chelsea and dashes off!
Kayla enters the room and Steve goes off to get Stephanie cheese burgers! Steph thinks it is a giant step forward while Kayla says, "It's just cheeseburgers!"
At the hospital, Steve is sobbing by Stephanie's bedside and Kayla comforts him as he tells her that he remembers holding his baby girl in his arms. He smiles as he holds her hand and tells her she is his baby girl! He runs off while Kayla sits with her daughter.
Billie sits in the waiting room with a crying Steve and is happy that he remembers Stephanie! He tells her he doesn't think he can handle this, as Kayla comes out. Billie says "I think you can" and leaves. Kayla holds Steve to her, while they both cry over his connection with Stephanie. He is scared to lose her and has fears that he is not what Stephanie wants in a dad. She asks that he stick around and try making a commitment.
Kayla and Shawn Sr. wait for news on Steph. Max comes out of his room to find news about Steph, and blames himself. Kayla comforts him. It's not his fault! Kayla goes in to see her after the okay from Dr. Berman.
