Bo arrives at the station and finds Inez who says, "Hello Officer." She's there to see his boss. Bo laughs when he hears that Inez is applying for a job to be an assistant to the police commissioner. Inez asks Bo what kind of man the commissioner is. It would help with her interview. Bo gives her some tips then leads Inez into his office. She wonders if Bo will get in trouble if the commissioner finds him behind his desk looking at her application. "I am the commissioner." Bo smiles. Inez feels bad for burdening Bo again. He insists she not leave. Bo acts professional, as though he's never met her, and conducts the interview. Bo hires Inez and assures her it's not based on charity. Inez thanks Bo profusely and asks him to please forget about everything she told him before she stepped into his office. He agrees and shares a story about his son Drew. Bo hopes one day Inez will get another chance with her sons like he did with Drew.

Greg arrives at Todd's who explains to Tea that Greg needs to know about her memory loss. Greg asks to speak to Tea alone but Todd demands, "Just give it to us straight. What's going on in her head?" Tea convinces Todd to go meet with Dani then admits to Greg that her symptoms are becoming more frequent. Greg confirms the tumor is causing them. She only has weeks to live. "I thought I had more time," Tea whispers. Greg lists the symptoms that are bound to come, affecting her speech, hearing, and mobility. She's stunned to hear she most likely won't recognize people, even Dani.
Nate takes a break from his job at the diner to sit with Dani. Dani fills him in on the wedding. Carlotta overhears and insists on giving Tea a wedding shower. Nate gets back to work and Carlotta talks briefly to Dani about Tea and Todd. When Cris arrives he pulls Carlotta aside and gives her the news about Evangeline. Todd appears, having overheard, and lashes out at Cris saying everyone gave up and let Evangeline die. Dani calms Todd who takes a seat and describes Evangeline to her as a lawyer who used to help him out, like Tea. Todd is forced to explain why Tea isn't there. They rush off to be with Tea.
Back at Todd's Tea cries. She doesn't want Todd and Dani to watch her fall apart and says, "I guess there's nothing I can do." Greg thinks she may have another option and hands her a pamphlet. Before he leaves he urges Tea not to take too long to make a decision. When Todd and Dani return home Tea says she needs to talk to them.
