Dinah is at Company chatting with Marina about their business problems. Dinah just wants to keep people happy but things keep getting in the way. Marina talks about having 'new mother syndrome' and how she can't leave Henry alone for two minutes. Remy comes in and tells Dinah she left her car door open. When she goes out to check, she looks around, disturbed.

Remy slips out and calls his father for an update on his financial situation. Clayton's still having no luck. When Remy gets off the phone, one of his old gambling friends approaches and asks him if he's interested in an easy score. Remy is reluctant, though he certainly needs the cash. He agrees to do it. After they shake hands, Christina walks over and announces she has something to show him.

Christina brings Remy down to the park for a picnic. She shows him her high school yearbook. He's impressed by how active she was and asks her how she ended up with him. She had all sorts of plans, but none of them turned out the way they were supposed to. But she has found a man she wants to be with. "I was always smart in the classroom, but now I'm smart out of it," she says. They kiss. She makes a blueprint of her daycare center with sticks. He teases her. She asks him about the guy he was talking to before. He speaks about his gambling past and admits that he said yes to playing a game, but he changed his mind when he saw her face. She makes him want to be better. They kiss and she tells him she needs to meet an investor and will see him later.

Josh and Shayne return to town. Shayne worries about Dinah. His father urges him to find her while he goes to talk to the police about Edmund. "You're not going to go tell the police. You're going to check on mom," Shayne says. Josh says his instincts for knowing when people need help are kicking in. Shayne offers to help him with Reva and thanks him. They hug.

Dinah goes back into Company. Marina is flipping out, unable to cope with running the restaurant alone. Dinah suggests that she get a babysitter and offers to look after Henry while she works. She takes Henry outside. Shayne rushes over to her and asks her what she is doing with the baby. "Why can't you stay out of this?" he demands. She suggests that he's feeling guilty. He stands by his decision and she's making his life more difficult. When he looks at the child, he feels things, but doesn't need a child in his life now. He accuses her of using the baby to stay connected to Mallet. She slaps him. He tries apologizing but she's outraged. "This about you. But you're self-destructive and that's making everything difficult," she says. Marina comes out and hopes they're being good examples for the baby. After she takes Henry inside, Shayne tells Dinah that Edmund is missing. He wants them to go back to her place until they know where he is. She claims she can take care of herself and stomps away. "Dinah... I love you," he mumbles.

Jeffrey takes the baby back to Cross Creek and tells him that he'll look out for him. Reva comes out and tells him he seems wired. She's nervous about her test results too. Reva wants to play some miniature golf before her appointment.

When they get to the golf course, he tries to knock her off her game. She laughs as they putter around. Hearing a noise, he jumps. She wonders why he's being so weird. Her phone rings. It's the hospital - her results are in. She's reluctant to answer but they leave a message. Jeffrey assures her that they can beat this. Reva walks off to listen to it as a young couple comes over and compliments him on the baby. When he sees Reva tearing up, he runs over to her. "I'm cancer free!" she cries. He picks her up and spins her around.

Josh goes to Cross Creek but no one is home. He goes inside, grabbing the fire tongs, and begins searching. Staring at a photo of Jeffrey and Reva, he shakes his head. "This isn't your job Joshua," he tells himself before walking out.

Reva and Jeffrey go home and uncork the champagne. He wants to start planning the rest of their lives. She promises him that they have all the time in the world and thanks him for coaching and bullying her into getting better. He hears someone outside and hurries out. It's Josh. He tells Jeffrey that he's worried about Edmund. Jeffrey explains that Reva just got her latest results. Josh says he will look after Edmund and will go to Frank for help. Jeffrey thanks him for everything he's done. Josh is just glad that Reva will still be around to drive them all crazy. When Jeffrey goes back inside, he finds a note from Reva saying she's gone for a walk.

Marina runs into Reva in the park. They look at their kids and Reva remarks about how much Henry looks like Shayne. The women talk about being mothers and set up a play date for the children. As Marina leaves, someone seems to lurk in the bushes.

When Reva goes home, she finds the house empty. She tells Colin that she'll never leave him. Jeffrey comes in and she breaks down, crying about how she just stared death in the face. He promises her that all of their worries are over.
