Matthew is stunned to see Inez and Bo kissing. He closes Inez's apartment door unseen. Clint was right. His parents are cheating!

Inez apologizes. However, Bo still thinks she's Nora and apologizes for the remark about Sam. Inez plays along. Bo kisses Inez again. As he apologizes again and vows to love Nora forever, Inez cries out of guilt. Bo passes out again. Inez refuses to sleep with Bo but wonders, "How will I ever get rid of Eddie?" Inez stares at Bo's gun belt.
As Matthew drives through the night, he calls Dani and says, "You're not the only one who cheats. Everyone cheats!" Dani pleads with Matthew to tell her what's wrong.

She begs Nate to stay away from Eddie.
Over at Llanfair, Natalie is stunned that John decided to propose just as she was going to tell him the truth. Natalie excuses herself, rushes to her room and calls Rex. Over talk of Marty and the lies, Rex encourages Natalie to take a chance and give John an answer. Natalie hangs up and rejoins John. She thinks he wants to marry her because she's having his baby. John isn't marrying her out of obligation and admits, "I love you. I want you to be my wife because I love you." Natalie is touched and doesn't want anything to ever hurt John. "Marry me, Natalie," John says and wonders why she's crying. Does that mean yes? Natalie accepts his proposal! They kiss. Brody arrives and apologizes for interrupting. John wants to tell Brody their news but Natalie stops him. After Natalie claims she and John were planning a surprise engagement party for Brody and Jessica, John wonders why they lied to Brody.

Rex tries to pick the lock of Eddie's motel room. A maid appears and asks, "What're you doing?" Rex rushes away when she threatens to call the manager.

The circulation in her fingers was cut off. Rex buttons Nora's shirt for her, as she worries about Eddie breaking up her marriage. Rex tries to call Bo but doesn't get an answer. He and Nora leave the room. Later, Eddie arrives and finds Nora gone. As he packs his things, Eddie wonders where his gun went. "It's right here," James says from the doorway. James aims the gun at Eddie.
Rex drives Nora into the night, as she talks about the texts Eddie was sending to Bo. She worries Bo believed them! Rex asks if Eddie attacked her. "The only thing that kept him from raping me was an appointment," Nora cries. Suddenly, oncoming headlights make them serve off the road. It's Matthew's car!
