Angie says she understands what she's going through, but Madison snaps that she can't because her baby didn’t die. Meanwhile, Ryan tells Jesse he doesn't know how to help Madison, because he doesn't know how to deal with the death of an innocent baby himself.

In "Erica's" hotel room, David questions why she is drinking a beer and eating fried food. "Erica" starts weaving an excuse about all the drama she and her daughters have been through lately. David thinks her excuses are typical addict behavior. He wonders how her family will feel knowing that she's fallen off the wagon. She points out they won't know unless he tells them. He responds, "I help you, you help me." She won't let him use her to get his medical license back. He brings up his shooting, but "Erica" doesn't think it has anything to do with her. When she tells him to out the real assailant, David realizes she has no idea what he's talking about. He assumes it's because of the alcohol. After more badgering, "Erica" agrees to write him a letter of recommendation to the board. David thinks she's giving in way too easily, but they get down to the business of writing her letter. As they talk about his evil deeds, David notes that it seems as if "Erica" admires him. She covers saying she hates what he's done, but she recognizes his brilliance. She tells him to write the letter himself and she'll sign it. He leaves to do so.
"Erica" finds Greenlee at ConFusion. Greenlee goes off on a tangent about not being with Ryan at the funeral. "Erica" suggests she just go to Ryan and fix things, but Greenlee says she doesn’t know how because there is a wall between them she just can't get through. "Erica" says, "Buy me dinner and I'll show you how to solve the problem." As they eat, Greenlee notes them sharing a meal is a first. After more encouragement from "Erica," Greenlee thanks her for knocking some sense into her and leaves.
