Reva has a welcome home party, Josh continues to worry and Phillip gets out of Ravenwood.
Jeffrey catches Reva trying to run off with the baby. She explains that they are going for a drive so she and her son can get re-acquainted. He urges her to ease into things. She promises that she will take it easy and walks out. As she goes to her car, Josh surprises her. Reva's startled to see him and wonders if he has been there all night. He claims he's on his way to a job site. "We don't need a security detail," she says.
Phillip sneaks back into Ravenwood and wakes Rick up. He thanks him for helping out and gives him a t-shirt. After Rick leaves, Phillip gets a call from his son. He tells him that he can't do much for him while he's still locked up. "Right. Only one escape per patient and you used yours for Lizzie," James snipes before hanging up.
At the cabin, Bill wonders if Lizzie is disappointed that they aren't married. She's not but thinks she should tell the family that they are engaged. She calls Beth and tells her the news. Beth is excited for her... but then informs her that her father is back in Ravenwood.
James shows up at Ravenwood and tells Phillip's doctor, Dr. Silver, that his father escaped to Florida on the weekend. He explains that his father is the sanest person he knows and ran all the way to Florida to help the family. The truth is that they need him. "I need my dad," he emphasizes. The doctor thanks him and tells him his dad is lucky to have such a good son.
Bill and Lizzie are at the mansion. Alan welcomes her home. She wishes they could act normal. "Like the Coopers and the Lewis'?" he asks. She wants her father to be free and thinks he deserves a second chance. Alan insists that he is only trying to protect her and her mother. He tells her to stop idolizing her father and stop dreaming. Bill takes her by the hand and leads her out. Outside, she tells him that she just wants everyone to be as happy as they are. "That's not going to happen," he says with a laugh.
At Ravenwood, Dr. Silver goes to see Phillip and makes it clear that she knows what happened. He takes full responsibility. They discuss his past and his relationship with his family. He's sure that Lizzie suffered the most from his absence. She informs him that she will have to do what is in his best interest and leaves.
Lizzie goes to Ravenwood to see Dr. Silver and tells her how much she needs her dad.
Josh joins Buzz and Billy at Company. He's still worrying about Edmund.
When Reva gets home, she finds a present waiting on the doorstep. She goes in with the baby and starts watching soaps. Jeffrey holds the baby and she talks about how she got hooked on Daytime. Lillian arrives with a present for the baby. They gab about Buzz and he comes in. Reva tells him he can only kiss her if he's not sick. "Mental disorders okay?" he asks, giving her a kiss. Jeffery offers them coffee. Lillian tells him to wait until everyone gets there. He's confused. They explain that Josh invited a bunch of people over. He walks off muttering profanities. More people arrive, including Josh. Reva unwraps her gifts. She picks up the one she found outside. The card reads, "Guess who?" Josh panics, grabs it and it falls on the floor. He explains that he thinks Edmund sent it. Reva says it was probably just her father.
In the kitchen, Frank wonders if they should be looking for Edmund. Jeffrey says Josh is just too edgy. Josh tells them to forget about it and walks off. As everyone eats, Frank worries that Josh is whacked out. Meanwhile, Jeffrey wonders how to get rid of their guests. Billy does them a favor and begins ushering everyone out the door. After they leave, Josh apologizes to the couple. His brother takes him away. "I think it was a big mistake to send Josh after Edmund," Jeffrey says. Reva says she will call Hawk and thank him for the gift.
James goes to The Beacon and sees his mother. She asks him when he is going back to school. He's finishing online so he can stick around town. Lizzie calls looking for her brother. She tells her mother to head back to the house because there could be trouble.
At the mansion, Alan is shocked to find his son sitting in his office. Phillip declares that he is as sane as anyone else. They bicker until Beth and James arrive. Phillip thanks his son for speaking on his behalf and says he owes him again. "I'll hold you to that," James says. Phillip babbles about getting out. His son wants to talk to him. Lizzie runs in and interrupts. She announces that she and Bill are engaged. Everyone begins congratulating her, except for Alan and James. They toast and James rolls his eyes. Lizzie and Beth look at bridal magazines. Bill offers Alan a drink. He needs aspirin.
Phillip follows his son out into the garden. James isn't interested in talking to him anymore and tells him to go back to playing father of the bride. Phillip walks away. James calls after him but his father doesn't turn around.
Billy and Josh go back to the office. Josh continues to worry but promises not to do anything stupid. When his brother leaves, Josh reads the letter again and thinks.
