In the cottage, Chris bluntly tells Sheridan that he and James are leaving her permanently: The marriage is over. He can't be in a marriage when his wife is in love with another man. She tries to say that she only loves Luis as a friend but Chris isn't going to accept the excuse this time. He doesn't think that she'll ever get over Luis; he feels like he has only been her husband in name. They shouldn't lie to themselves anymore and he won't be her second choice. She begs him not to go and tells him that he and James are her present and her future. 'If you love me, you will give me the chance to be the wife that you deserve,' she pleas. Leaving is not what he wants, he admits. She kisses him, but then the phone rings and she puts the TV on to see what's happening at the trial. As the announcer talks about 'the shocking use of judicial power', Sheridan keeps repeating Luis' name. Chris gets James and brings him in to say goodbye. She tells James that she will always love him. Chris sends him out to the car and she begs again for them not to leave. 'You left me the moment you knew that Luis wasn't dead after all,' he says, hoping that she'll he happy with them gone. Taking his bags, he walks out. 'Goodbye my love,' he says quietly to himself before climbing into the car. Sheridan has lost everything: Luis, Marty, James, her baby with Chris and Chris himself.
At home, Chris has realized that it's over between he and Sheridan after she confessed to loving Luis on the stand. He tells James that they need to go away. Mommy is busy and they have to get out of her way. He assures James that his mother loves him with her whole heart and soul. 'Sometimes I envy you that,' he says melancholically before sending his son up to pack. They can have an adventure, just like the pirates in the books he likes to read. When James goes upstairs, Chris is left to think about how much he has actually grown to love James as a son. He prays that he can be a good father to the child and that Sheridan will forgive him for taking him away. Later, Sheridan returns and asks if there is a problem with James. 'Not with James,' Chris says before she starts talking about Luis. Looking around, she notices that all of his bags are packed. James comes out and Chris tells her that he and James are going away together. Numbed and stupefied, she can barely say anything.
