At home, Olivia asks her daughter for advice about the wedding. Emma takes her by the hand and leads her upstairs. Natalia is crying. "I can't let you do this," she says, explaining she wants to take the dress back. Olivia wants her to have everything she wants. "I can't have the one thing that I want," Nat weeps. Olivia tells her that being drawn to something is never a mistake. Nat says that what she wants is wrong and selfish. Emma calls them downstairs. Frank is there with an early wedding present. When he opens the door, Rafe walks in and hugs his mother. "I'm home for good," he tells her. She thanks God. Rafe tells her to thank Frank. She doesn't know how to thank him. He did it for their family, he says. Rafe has to check into a half way house in a week so he was wondering if they could get married this week. Nat is skeptical but Olivia says it's possible. After watching the three of them hug, Olivia walks out sadly.

At Cedars, Jeffrey tells Reva that Shayne already has several people looking after him. They need to concentrate on their baby. He's sure she wants to take care of things herself but she has to wait. Sitting down with her, he shows her pictures of their son. She's sad to be missing stuff. Lillian walks in and Jeffrey asks her to take a picture of them. Reva keeps worrying about Edmund being on the loose.

At Farley's, Dinah and Josh wonder where Shayne has vanished to. They worry more when Roc seems to have vanished and isn't answering his phone. Josh tries to reassure her and leaves to find Roc. When he walks outside, he notices Roc on the ground and rushes over to help him up.

Dinah walks into Company. She tries calling Shayne without luck. Billy calls her over and she explains that Shayne and Edmund aren't friends anymore. Checking her voice mail, she discovers that Shayne is with Edmund and she worries even more.

Josh runs into Jeffrey at Cedars. He tells him that Shayne has vanished and Roc was attacked. He doesn't want him to worry about this though. Reva comes out and tells them that she is worried about both of her sons. They tell her to stay put and rush off.

At the photo studio, Edmund tells Shayne that he's canceled the shoot. Shayne agrees that this isn't the best time. Before he can leave, Edmund reminds him that he's responsible for his daughter's death. "I understand everything now," he says. He tells him that Lara was everything to him. Her daughter could have come to know the man he had become rather than who he was. Shayne admits that he hates himself for letting Lara die. "Not nearly enough," Edmund says, accusing him of being a liar and taking everything from him. Shayne thinks they should leave this alone for now. Edmund shuts the door and repeats that Shayne could never have loved Lara. The photographer walks in and interrupts. Dinah calls and Shayne tries to inch his way out, explaining that Edmund is being 'freaky'. Edmund listens on the line as Dinah tells Shayne to meet him at the ballpark.

Olivia asks Doris out for a drink, but says it's not a date. They drink cocktails at Towers and Olivia tries to mask how unhappy she is about the wedding date being moved up. Doris is sure that Olivia would rather cut off her right foot than let this go ahead and accuses her of being a coward. Olivia doesn't know what to say. "You have got to stop that wedding," Doris advises, insisting that it is the right thing to do for everyone involved.

Back at home, Nat shows Rafe the calendar and all the days she has marked off counting down until his return. She wants to take him to Cedars to check on his blood sugar. He insists that he is fine; his faith and thoughts of her have kept him alive. Emma comes down and drags him up to see his room. Nat picks up a photo of she, Emma and Olivia. "Not to late too back out," Frank says as he pops up and looks over her shoulder.

Rafe and Emma talk about the wedding and he offers to be her friend. When Rafe goes downstairs, he hands Frank Gus' watch and tells him he wants him to have it. Frank would never try to replace his father but he will try to be the best man he can be for them. As Rafe and Frank hug, Nat cries and walks into the kitchen. Olivia arrives and Nat pulls her in to show her what just happened. Emma comes down the stairs in her dress for the wedding. Nat decides she doesn't want to wait anymore and thinks they should get married right away. Frank is thrilled. Nat asks Olivia to be her maid of honor. Olivia cries and agrees.

Billy corners Reva at Cedars as she tries to make a run for it. She doesn't like everyone ganging up on her. He brought her some pie and two forks.

Jeffrey and Josh arrive at the photo studio. The photographer tells them what happened and they leave for the alley where Josh found Roc. Lillian calls Jeffrey for an update that she can give to Reva. They continue to search.

Shayne arrives at the ballpark and finds Edmund holding Dinah captive with a bat. When she breaks free, Shayne runs at him and Edmund clobbers him. He tells her to run but she refuses. She tells Edmund that he could have killed Shayne and that would hardly have made him into the sort of man that Lara could have loved. After Edmund runs off, Josh and Jeffrey arrive. After checking on the situation, Jeffrey exclaims, "Oh my God! Reva!"

Edmund sneaks into Cedars dressed as a doctor.
