Coop tries to comfort Ava

Olivia and Buzz collapse on the bench exhausted from the party. They still can't believe how strange it was and even stranger how Reva is running off with Billy. Olivia tells Buzz that he's 'amazing' and has the 'biggest heart.' They go inside for a nightcap and, as Olivia slips off for a moment, Buzz calls Ashlee over for a favor.

Ava is going through all of her old photos of her mother. She becomes frustrated and throws them at the wall when she realizes that they no longer give her comfort. She goes into the bathroom to cry and, as Coop picks the photos from the floor, he gets a call from Ashlee telling him that he and Ava are needed. They rush over, Ava stopping outside, reluctant to go in if Olivia is there, but Coop ushers her in. Immediately they are faced with Buzz and Olivia and Coop realizes that they were set up. They stare daggers at each other and Coop asks Buzz if he can 'seriously imagine Ava sitting down with Olivia after she tried to have her killed?' Olivia tries to sneak out but Buzz asks her to stay 'for me.' Ashlee invites herself to the meal and can't help pointing out how much Ava and Olivia look alike. She wonders how no one could have noticed before. She continues to go about her own relationship with her mother and tries to dole out advice to them while they stare at her with utter dread. Buzz continually asks her to go and eventually she gets the hint. Olivia announces that the dinner is over and walks out. Ava and Coop soon follow behind, only to find Alan-Michael waiting for them outside. Coop tries to get rid of him but Ava blurts out that she 'needs him' and offers to help him work through the night. She tells Coop that it's only so she can get Olivia off her mind. He says 'fine', he has to have a talk with his father anyway. She leaves with Alan-Michael while he pensively looks on.

When they get back to her apartment, Olivia begins to berate Buzz for what he did that evening. She's sick of him telling her what she should do and how she should be. It's time for her to find someone else, someone in her 'own league.' She's only been settling with him; he's not the right guy. Buzz tells her that she deserves someone who loves her and can see her, 'good and bad and won't run away.' This silences her and she falls into his arms apologizing profusely for her outburst. He says that she is really lashing out at Ava's father and the only way she can get over this and learn to trust again is to find him and forgive him somehow.

Alan-Michael flatly tells Ava that she is stuck with her biology and can't run away from it. She doesn't want to talk about it, but he suggests to her that Olivia could be lying. Maybe her father really was a good guy. 'My father? A decent honest man...you always can hope.' He offers to put some of his people out there to find him.

Coop has gone inside and is looking for flights to book to London. He wants to take Ava away. Buzz comes and sits by him, apologizing. Coop tells him to forget it. 'Just don't ever let that woman come around Ava again.' Meanwhile, Olivia has begun flashing back to the morning after her rape. She discovered a necklace baring the image of St. Jude which she has kept to this day. There is a knock at the door. It's Ava demanding to know all about her father.

Cassie, Josh and RJ have gone to his place to finish packing. He decides that he doesn't want to spend their first day together packing and asks her and RJ to go to Paris with him to see Marah. Cassie can't refuse. Soon, they are in the jet drinking champagne while RJ tours the cockpit. Josh keeps staring at his phone and Cassie asks him if he's expecting a message. He tells her that he feels like he's forgotten something. She tells him that he's worried about Billy and they really shouldn't leave him in his state. He insists that there's nothing they can do for him. He begins flashing back to the dream about Reva and looks down at her rabbit's foot. She asks him again if they should go. She feels uncomfortable leaving things they way they are with Reva and Billy. They have been waiting a long time and there are storms ahead so the flight will be delayed a few hours. They decide to go back into town to pack some more. Josh gets a call from Billy who informs him that Reva is in the hospital before hanging up.

Reva arrives at the hospital while Rick and Lillian try to pry information out of Billy after they find amino suppressants in her purse. Eventually, he slumps into the seat beside her and tells them about the cancer. Lillian walks him out and gets information before calling Dr. Colin. Mel comes out and tells Billy that Reva is critical and he should call the family. He asks to see her first and sits down beside her, apologizing for telling them everything. She opens her eyes and tells Billy that she won't die in a hospital. As she tries to climb out of the bed, he tries to calm her while she tells him to keep his promises to her. She collapses again, going in and out of consciousness, begging Billy not to call Josh.
After Rick and Mel get Reva stabilized, they walk off and Mel is upset. She never though she'd see this. Rick tries to comfort her, but she pushes him away. Just then, Josh runs in demanding to see Reva while Lillian tries to hold him out of the room. He gets up close and sees her laying in the bed unconscious and is stunned into silence.
