We have more important things to worry about." No matter what his excuse, Lily's eyes are filled with suspicion, "Have you used that email for anything?" Daniel insinuates, "You're not upset because of me, it's because of your mom." Lily snaps, calls Daniel a jerk, then asks for Colleen to take her to the accident site - without Daniel!
As Lily leaves, Amber arrives with food, "She seems pretty upset." Daniel replies, "Yeah, with me." Daniel explains the picture, screen name and email address Lily found, then says, "After all she's been through, now I upset my wife. I need to fix this."
Jack and Noah bring Sharon home to the ranch and get her settled on the couch. Alone, Jack asks if he can get Sharon anything, "With all these men looking out for you, it must drive you nuts." Jack goes on to ask about Brad's constant presence and Sharon explains that they're just friends, "I can share things with Brad that I can't share with anyone else." Just then, Brad calls to check in on Sharon, "Vikki's in Madison with Nikki, so if you need anything…" Sharon thanks Brad, but says, "Jack's here and Noah…" After she hangs up, Jack agrees, "Well, he is a good friend." Watching Noah cater to Sharon, Jack comments on how strong Noah is and says, "He still doesn't know we're getting married." However, Sharon wants to wait till things settle down to tell him. Too Late! Noah is standing in the shadows and overhears - undetected! When Noah joins Jack and Sharon, he informs them he doesn't want to go on his class trip. Sharon asks Noah what's wrong and he asks, "Are you and Jack really getting married?" Sharon and Jack say they wanted to talk to him first then Sharon asks Noah to think about it. After Noah goes upstairs, Sharon tells Jack, "Give him some time." At Sharon's request, Jack agrees to go to work for a bit.
In his office, Brad gets a call from Grandville Global requesting specifically for Neil's signature on a report.
At Indigo, Cane tells Neil that he went to the site to help in the search but they wouldn't let him, "Anything I can do for you…" Changing the subject, Cane asks if he can get Neil some food - or a beer - and Neil answers, "You can get me a scotch." With the drink in front of him, Neil takes it down in one swig! Needing Neil to sign a paper for Grandville Global, Brad arrives at Indigo to see him drinking. After Neil signs the paper, Brad expresses how sorry he is and Neil replies calmly, "You're part of the reason this happened." Although Brad asks him not to do this now, Neil stands up and says, "If you hadn't used Sharon, my wife would be here now!" Neil brings up Phyllis's blackmail, then says, "Ask me what you came here to ask me. Am I going to keep your secret?" Answering for Brad, Neil goes on, "Because of Sharon, I'm not going to tell your secret." Brad reminds Neil that he knows what it feels like to lose someone, "Trust me, I'm not your enemy. Don't make me one."
After Brad leaves, the phone rings. It's Daniel looking for Lily. Cane tells him Lily isn't there, then admits, "Her dad is though, he's drinking." Daniel says he's on his way.

When Brad arrives at the ranch, Noah heads out after changing his mind about going on his school fieldtrip. Sharon fills Brad in about telling Noah about the wedding. Suddenly, Sharon breaks down in tears and cries, "You're right. I think it'd be a big mistake marrying Jack. I don't really love him." Sharon talks about her life flashing before her eyes during the fall and thinking about her family and says, "I saw your face - not Jack's. The last moment of my life and I didn't even think of him." While talking about the time they spent together during the storm, Brad and Sharon recant some poems they had shared, then Brad says, "That one made me realize just how much I really do love you." Brad takes Sharon in a passionate kiss!
At the coffeehouse, Amber runs into Lily and tries to be a friend, "Daniel told me what happened." Amber goes on to explain how nude pictures have been sent to her as a prank, "Come on, you don't think Daniel took that picture, do you?" When Lily says she doesn't know what to think - and with Colleen saying, "He's lied before" - Amber reassures Lily, "He loves you so much." Lily goes on to say, "Just like my mom and dad, I thought they'd be together forever." Not able to get a hold of her father, Lily calls Daniel and finds out that he's with Neil at Indigo, "I'm coming over there."
After Daniel hangs up, he tells Neil, "She's on her way." Neil orders a coffee, then says to Daniel, "Lily doesn't need to know I had a drink." And Daniel replies, "No, she doesn't" Shortly after, Lily arrives to find that Neil's in the men's room. As Cane's telling Lily how sorry he is, Neil comes out and claims he needed some alone time. Suddenly, Neil says he wants to have a prayer service for Dru, "Your mother is not dead and we need to pray for her!" When Neil says he wants to go to the office, Daniel offers to give him a ride and Neil accepts. While Neil's getting ready, Lily thanks Daniel for watching over her dad then apologizes about the 'computer thing,' "I feel bad for questioning you." Daniel holds her close and says, "I'd never do anything to hurt you."
Phyllis arrives at Michael and Lauren's, "I'm so stressed, I didn't know where else to go." After Lauren goes to check on Fen, Michael tells Phyllis to quit blaming herself, "It was an accident." Suddenly, Phyllis admits, "You don't know the whole story. It's bad… What happened with Sharon and Dru… I was blackmailing Sharon." Phyllis goes on to tell Michael about Brad and Sharon's affair. When Michael asks what 'really' happened at the photo shoot, Phyllis fills him in, "I was threatening to call Jack. Sharon and Dru grabbed for the phone, then it happened… I blackmailed Brad for the vote and Sharon because all this time I was branded as the other woman. I wanted to have power over them." Although Michael wonders what'll happen when the secret comes out, Phyllis says, "It won't come out," then demands that Michael doesn't tell anyone, "Promise me!" Michael reluctantly says, "I promise."
After Phyllis leaves, Lauren can tell something's on Michael's mind and asks about Phyllis. However, Michael doesn't reveal what he knows, but says he wonders how Phyllis will be affected by the accident.
