At Company, Marina complains to Blake about how they can't keep up with the rush. She's also worried about her father and thanks Blake for keeping things stable. Buzz arrives with bags full of souvenirs from New York.

Frank is taken aback when Nat informs him that she's pregnant. After an awkward pause, they both say they are happy. "Good because you're the father," she says. He says he'll be there for her and the baby. She explains that she has a plan – she wants to be with Olivia and they can all raise the child together. "That's some plan," he says. She knows it's unusual but she thinks it would be best for the baby. He disagrees and doesn't think the idea is in anyone's best interest.

Rafe finds Ashlee and Daisy sitting in the park. They tease Daisy about James. Rafe tells her that he knows about her and James and he's okay with it. Daisy decides that it would be fun to go and visit Reva. Before they can, Nat calls her son to tell him she's home. He runs off. Blake calls Ashlee and tells her they need to interview Buzz for the book.

Olivia shows up at Josh's and demands sex. She's a little over-enthusiastic and blurts out that she is doing this because she's in love with Natalia. That spoils the mood. She explains that they've been fighting it since Gus and were finally ready to move forward but Nat ran off. When she tries making out with him again, he tells her that this isn't what she wants. "One crazed woman in my life is one too many," he says. She needs a friend, not a lover and he can do that for her.

Marina calls to tell Frank that Buzz is back. Frank can't talk. "She told you, didn't she?" Olivia says as she approaches him. Neither of them knows what to do now. Olivia tells him he's a good guy and the baby needs a father. Nat already came to her but she rejected her. She demands to know if Frank loves Natalia. He still does. "Then fight for her," she says. "You will not fail because I won't let you," she insists. "You really love her," he observes. She tells him that Nat will marry him and be his problem now.

Rafe goes home to see his mother. He notices that she looks different. "You're going to be a big brother," she informs him. He tells her that she can marry Frank now. He interprets this as confirmation that Olivia is not the right thing for her. She insists that being with Olivia is the right thing because she loves her and wants her baby to be raised in a home with love. He reminds her that she raised him without a father or a lover, though he would have given anything to have a dad. He says that Olivia stole Gus' heart and she needs to realize that if she stays with Olivia, she will get hurt. "This is too much for me," he says, shaking his head and walking out.

Reva has a picnic inside Cross Creek, surrounded by pictures of Jeffrey. She talks about how it's been a year that they've been together and begins toasting and talking about how sexy Jeffrey was in a turtleneck. When she gets up to dance, she catches herself in the mirror and realizes how crazy this is. She runs outside, jumps in her car and drives away. When she stops beside the road, she shouts, "What am I supposed to do?"

She continues driving to the construction site. She jumps out and tells Josh that she needs him. "Not today," he says. She says that she's in pain and he has to help her. She's losing it, she admits, and she doesn't know who she is anymore. "I need you to save me!" she cries. He can't be drawn into her life again. She consumes his whole life and it terrifies him and wears him out. When that happens, they both lose. He's a mess right now and trying to save her would just destroy them both. "You're going to have to save yourself," he says.

Daisy and Ashlee arrive at Cross Creek. The door is wide open. They see the pictures of Jeffrey plastered everywhere and are stunned. "It's not normal... even for a widow," Daisy says. She doesn't think they should tell anyone though...not yet. They worry about the baby.

 image

Frank goes to see Natalia. He finds her crying and she tells him that Rafe is upset. He explains that he was about to tell his family the news and asks her if she'd like to be there. "Yes," she sobs.

 image

Rafe finds Olivia on the bridge. He tells her that she is 'done' and his mom will be with Frank. "You're going to be alone," he says. They argue. She tells him that Nat wants her and she's the one who said no.

 image

Frank and Natalia arrive at Company and announce to the family that she is pregnant. Everyone is silent. The family finally yells their congratulations. More awkwardness follows.

 image

Ashlee runs into Rafe with a six pack. He tells her that his mom is pregnant and a lesbian. Nat calls but he won't pick up.

 image

Josh walks to the church but won't go inside.

 image

Reva goes home and begins taking the photos off the wall before collapsing in tears.
