Marina, Shayne, Josh and the baby head to Cross Creek and tell Reva the news. She's shocked. She hugs her son and tells him this must be why she's always gotten along with Henry so well. Shayne insists that Marina will always be Henry's mother. They explain how this happened.

Beth and Phillip finally arrive. He tells her he couldn't get through this without her. She wants to be with him every step of the way. As they hug, James comes in. They go into the waiting room with everyone else. Phillip tells them he's dying. When it becomes clear that he's known for months, James walks out. Lizzie cries to her father and Alex sobs to Alan.
