At Spaulding, Cyrus gets a call from his brother. He tells him not to call him there but assures him that he is still working on getting Lizzie's confidence. Lizzie walks in, complaining that the press has been badgering her. She tells him that he is the only person she can trust and begins handing over company information. Cyrus is giddy until Alex arrives. She quickly tells him to leave and then sits down to remind Lizzie about what a problem Cyrus is. "Honest to Pete! You cannot share these files with Cyrus Foley!" Alex exclaims, shaking her head. Lizzie thinks people can change. Alex suggests she talk to Marina, or Harley about that. Lizzie reminds her of what she did to Coop, and Tammy, and everyone else. The only person left for her is Cyrus. Alex walks out.

Bill arrives at the jail to visit Phillip. He's there to talk about Lizzie. Phillip heard that he kidnapped her. Bill claims he knows who really did it. He's sure that it was Cyrus and he thinks that Phillip is the only person who can help him get through to Lizzie. Phillip is skeptical. Bill tells the story of the kidnapping and how he ended up finding her. He's sure that he was framed for this while he was in the hospital. Phillip can't understand why Bill isn't in jail. Bill tells him all the evidence was destroyed. "That's a lucky break," Phillip says. He needs some time to think this over. Bill advises him to think fast. Moments later, Phillip decides to make his phone call.

Alex arrives to visit Phillip following his call. She's ecstatic to see him. He tells her that everyone has been trying to feed him their version of events and he doesn't know who to believe. He asks her what she knows about Cyrus. She says he's ten times more dangerous than he seems. That sounds exactly like what Bill said. Alex tells him not to listen too much to Bill either. "He's a flat drunk," she says. She tells him that Lizzie has started acting out the way he used to before he broke down. Neither of them knows what to do, but she offers to try and get him out.

At Cross Creek, Reva is trying to write a letter to Buzz. She can only come up with cliches. Jeffrey suggests they go and see him in person. Billy and Josh arrive and talk about how hard Daisy has been taking everything.

Bill walks into Spaulding. When he sees Cyrus and Lizzie working together, he splashes himself with some booze and walks in. Before he can make a scene, Cyrus walks him out. Billy arrives and Lizzie tells him that his son has been drinking again. She wants him out of her life and out of the company. Billy tries to talk her out of this.

Cyrus takes Bill back to The Beacon. Bill tells him about wrestling with the kidnapper and how he thinks he is getting his memory back. Cyrus suggests that's wishful thinking and walks out. Bill watches through the door while a nervous Cyrus calls his brother.

Buzz wanders into Coop's room. He smashes a photo of he and his two sons. Kneeling, he picks up the shards of glass and looks over Coop's papers on his desk. As he puts the photo away, he discovers Coop's will in a drawer.

Mel walks into Company after seeing Buzz through the window. She tries to pay her condolences, but there aren't any words. He was going to call her anyway: Coop made a will. Buzz can't imagine why someone so young would do so. When they sit down, Reva and Jeffrey arrive. Jeffrey and Mel leave to make coffee and Reva sits with Buzz, offering him whatever he needs.

Josh and Reva worry that Shayne seems to have vanished. He wants to search for him but Jeffrey forbids it. He won't let Josh drag Reva into this. Buzz walks over and reminds them about the dinner they were supposed to have tomorrow to celebrate the end of Reva's chemo. Reva can't celebrate while Buzz is going through his loss. He thinks life needs to be celebrated and hugs her.

Reva and Jeffrey go to Towers. She knows that he wants to celebrate the end of chemo, but she can't stop thinking about what Buzz is going through. He hands her a gift. It's a graduation hat to signal her move to another stage in life. She laughs and they toast with cider.

 image

As Buzz sits on Coop's bed, Josh walks in to say goodbye. Buzz looks at a toast that Coop was writing for him before he died. Josh holds his hand. Buzz asks him to speak at the memorial. Josh would be honored to do so.
