Katie asks Jack where his kissing Carly leaves their relationship. He tries to explain that he'll always have feelings for his ex but Katie is certain that his feelings aren't just typical ex-type feelings. Jack tells her that his feelings won't change how he feels about Katie. She suggests that Jack begin separating himself from Carly to make things easier on him but Jack refuses. "I can't pull away from her now," he says. Crying, Katie tells Jack that she understands how he feels but tells him that she can't watch him leave her every night in favor of Carly. Katie asks him to move out! Jack can't believe it and tells Katie that he won't do it. She begs him, saying she can't handle his leaving constantly now. Jack takes her in his arms and tells her not to make him leave but Katie begs him to go. "I'm not giving up on us, Katie," he says and leaves the room. Katie breaks down in tears. She goes downstairs and Henry sees her. Katie tells Henry everything. "I'm waiting for Carly to die to get my husband back. How sick is that?" she asks and tells Henry that she thinks Jack is still in love with Carly. Henry offers to let Katie hang with him and Vienna but Katie turns him down. She returns to the hospital room, locks the door and stares at her wedding ring.

Carly quietly settles in to pray, telling God about her day. She remembers Jack's kiss and thanks God for allowing it to happen. Then she gets angry, wondering why God is taking her life from her so quickly. "I want time," she exclaims. She asks God to save her for her kids sake and for Jack's sake! Carly calls the doctor's office. He tells her that he needs to see her as soon as possible and offers to stop by the house! The doctor arrives and tells Carly that her diagnosis was wrong - she doesn't have a lesion on her brain, it is only an abscess. Carly isn't dying! He tells her that a tumor would be growing at a fast pace but the abscess on her brain isn't growing at all. He also believes that her illness and headaches are a side effect of the medications she is on. Carly can't believe it. He asks her to come to the hospital the next day for more tests to confirm everything and says if he is right she'll only have to deal with an antibiotic routine for a few weeks and will return to normal. He leaves. Carly throws away the medications. Jack arrives and Carly excitedly tries to tell him what the doctor said. Worried about her, Jack takes her temperature and tries to calm her down. With the thermometer in her mouth, Carly asks about Katie and Jack tells her that Katie asked him to move out! Jack tells Carly that his feelings for her aren’t in the past any longer. Taking his hand, Carly says she wants him to be happy. Jack changes the subject and asks about the "divine intervention" that she was going on about earlier. Carly tells him it can wait until later! They sit together, quietly, for a while. Carly asks Jack to stay and he agrees!
