Life Through A Dream... image

Natalie gets out of bed at the loft. She opens a letter and sees the paternity test, naming John as Liam's father. She snaps awake, waking up Brody as well. She assures him it was just a dream. Brody surprises Natalie with an engagement ring. He wonders what's wrong. Doesn't she like the ring? Natalie wants to do what's right for Jessica, as well as them. She panics when Brody wants to call Clint for his blessing. Brody refuses to allow anyone, especially Clint, to make them feel guilty.


Brody wakes up Jessica at Llanfair. She needs to get ready. It's their wedding day. Clint nudges Jessica awake and apologizes for startling her. Is she having nightmares? She's happy Clint's out of the wheelchair and admits her dream was wonderful, waking up was the nightmare. Jessica shares her dream and that Brody proposed to Natalie, who hasn't said yes yet. John's holding Natalie back. Clint agrees Natalie should be with John. Clint's phone rings. It's Brody wanting Clint's blessing. When Clint hears Natalie said yes, he hangs up on Brody and relays the news to Jessica. She thought Natalie would say no, for John. Clint hugs her and offers to make breakfast for Jessica and the kids.


Back at the loft, Brody wants to be sure Natalie can handle the backlash from everyone. If she wants to back out, she should do so now. She puts on Brody's ring and says, "It's what I want." They fall to the bed in a kiss. Later, Natalie leaves Liam with Brody. She has something to take care of before work. Brody shares his happiness with Liam and says, "All that trouble died with Victor Lord."


Natalie finds John at Rodi's. They have something to tell each other. Natalie urges John to go first. "I'm still in love with you," John admits then wakes up after a night of boozing. Bo appears. John's late for work. Bo doesn't want him showing up drunk and asks, "What happened with Natalie this time?" Roxy forced him to admit he still loves Natalie. He claims he just said it to shut Roxy up. Bo urges John to tell Natalie the truth. John reminds Bo Natalie's with Brody now, end of story. Talk turns to work. Bo explains they have to cut Irene loose. The FBI wants to keep the agency quiet. They're sending someone for Irene today. Later, Natalie appears. They have something to tell each other. Like in John's dream, Natalie urges him to go first.


Tea rolls over in her bed and puts her arms around her husband. Todd turns over and faces Tea, causing her to wake up gasping for air. Blair appears and guesses Tea had a dream that Victor was back in her bed. "Not only is Victor dead," Tea replies. "Todd wants me to prove he didn't kill him." Over talk of Jack, Blair admits she doubts his story. She plans to defend Jack against everyone in order to get to the truth. Blair leaves her wallet on the desk for Tea, saying it'll make sense later. She also gives Tea a box of Victor's things from The Sun. After Blair leaves, Tea opens the box. She looks at a photo of her and Victor and thinks about Todd asking her to take his case. Tea dumps the box and leaves, never noticing Liam's paternity results.


Jack visits Todd in jail and apologizes for lying to the cops. Todd opens his eyes and faces Irene, who wants information. He has no idea what the hell she's after. She urges Todd to dig deep inside his mind and talks about a microchip he took, one that could cause issues for the agency. That's why they swapped him with Victor, to get it back. Todd reminds Irene how they scrambled his brain for eight years. How's he supposed to remember what happened before that? Bo appears. Todd's stunned that Irene is being released. Bo warns Irene if she hurt's anyone else, especially Viki, she'll pay. There are no more free passes for her. Irene balks at how everyone always rushes to Viki's aid. Later, Tea appears. Todd smiles.


The teacher calls on Jack in class. Miss Morasco heard Jack knew all about carbon monoxide. Jack wakes up and looks at Shane who says, "What's your problem? Looks like you saw a ghost." Jack orders Shane to quit staring at him. Shane listens as Jack talks to his friends about witnessing Todd killing Victor. Shane glares at Jack. Later, Blair shows up and tells Jack once again that she believes him. As Shane watches, he remembers knocking Jack out the night of Victor's murder. Shane looks at a drawing on his desk. It's of him holding a gun.
