Before Clint heads to break the news to Natalie, he asks Nigel to prepare for Nora to get to Seattle to be with Matthew. Once he's gone, Bo and Nora comment on how they hate hurting Clint, to which Nora admits when she's with Clint, she feels as though she's cheating on Bo. "I would want to know, now," Bo says, warning that they need to tell Clint the truth, and Nora agrees - before someone else tells him. Though they've been discreet, Bo and Nora list off the people who know they kissed - and are happy that none of them feel loyal enough to tell Clint! Nora and Bo decide to tell Clint the second they bring Matthew home from the hospital.
Natalie arrives at Buchanan Enterprises and briefly stares at Jared's nameplate before heading into the office. Inside, Natalie sees Kim, who's on the phone with Stacy planning her next move, then says, "What the hell are you doing?" Kim explains that Jared hired her then tries to take the mail and leave, but Natalie stabs a letter opener into the desk and demands that Kim tell her what she's really up to! As Natalie threatens to beat the truth out of Kim, Clint appears and admits that he hired Kim then excuses Kim, sees the letter opener but still warns Natalie that Mitch could be set free. Clint explains that all the evidence now points to Jared then legally refutes the list of crimes Natalie rants off. Though Clint wants to take her home, Natalie insists on staying there to pack up Jared's things…
After Clint leaves, Natalie starts trashing the office, in tears, and accidently breaks a framed photo of her and Jared. When Natalie finds her Christmas gift labeled: "For Sparky on Christmas," she opens the card and reads about how much Jared loves her. Jared gives her the gift of a honeymoon in Hawaii and tells her the gift in the box is what he hopes she'll give him in Hawaii. Natalie opens the box and finds a book of baby names with a post-it on it reading: "Your Pick." In tears, Natalie throws the book then stares at the letter opener, which is still stuck in Jared's desk!
Later, Clint returns to Jared's office, finds it in shambles, remembers seeing the stabbed letter opener in the desk then notices it's gone!

As Marty is visiting John, Mitch is brought into his office. Mitch makes a comment, wondering what Marty sees in John, since he didn't even rape her, then John shoves him hard!

Kyle, who's at the hospital, receives a call from Fish, who relays that Cris and Layla are going at it again! After talking about the night they missed, Fish promises that they'll make the guys who did this to Nick pay. After Kyle hangs up, he joins Marty, who is trying to help Nick's mental state. As Nick snaps that he's fine, Kyle goes to give him some time alone, but Nick grabs his hand and begs him to stay. Nick opens up to Marty and blames himself for the attack, for ranting gay pride all over Llanview, but Marty assures him that none of this is his fault - it's the men who attacked him - and reminds Nick he needs to be strong so he can help put those who did this to him behind bars.
Cris and Layla wake up in bed, thinking they're dreaming, then the couple makes love again - just to be sure they aren't. Later, Layla and Cris appear in the living room, and after Cris ducks out quickly, Fish tells Layla how happy he is for her and Cris. Over talk of Nick, Layla remembers how Evangeline was attacked and says, "Make sure that you throw the book at them, please." Fish leaves, and when Cris reappears, Layla rushes into his arms, hoping that Nick passed out and didn't suffer through the beating like Evangeline suffered through.
As Fish arrives outside of John's office door, he hears John warning Mitch that if he manages to weasel out of these charges, he'll kill him himself! Inside the office, Mitch starts ranting off his plans for his former bride, Natalie, causing John to pull Mitch backwards in his chair. Fish briefly checks in, wanting to be present while John questions Mitch, but John turns Fish away and closes the door! Shortly after, Natalie appears and demands to know how Mitch is going to get away with murder. As John calls for another cop to come in and take Mitch away, Natalie makes it clear to Mitch that she has nothing to live for - then stabs him with the letter opener!
Fish heads to the hospital and asks Nick to look through a book of mug-shots, leaving Marty asking Nick, "What do you think? Feel like fighting back?" Nick looks through the photos and pinpoints the guys who attacked him!

Mrs. Evans drags Destiny out into the hallway and berates the Buchanans - and the bad influence they've had on Destiny and Greg! Destiny refuses to give up Matthew then stomps off, leaving Greg to warn his mother to give up 'the hate'. When his mother wonders if Greg would disown her for his new girlfriend, Rachel, who will not get a 'free pass' for hurting Shaun, Greg assures her that he loves his family, but credits Rachel for giving him the courage to operate again.
