Ava treats Griffin’s bee sting at her penthouse. He can’t thank her enough when she finishes her gentle, but seductive, massage of the lavender oil into his back. He puts on his shirt as she apologizes about embarrassing him. He’s flattered when she points out he’s beautiful but he doesn’t agree that he’s perfect. Ava wonders what it’s like to not be tempted and Griffin replies, “Who says I’m not tempted?” Ava knows of his past indiscretions and thanks him for sharing but her stamina is wavering and she needs her rest. Griffin leaves and Ava starts drinking. After passing out, she dreams of looking in the mirror and finding a perfect face. Griffin comes up behind her and points out how beautiful she always was before kissing her passionately. Ava wakes up and walks to the mirror only to see her burn-scarred face. She answers her phone, it’s Valentin. She tells him she doesn’t believe in miracles. She hangs up and considers ripping up his card.

Liz leisurely strolls outside Kelly’s talking to Hayden’s mom about her whereabouts. She bumps into Franco as she ends the call and excitedly presses into him for a kiss. She has so many questions but he assures her all is well and plans on calling her in sick so they can be alone. They sit inside Kelly’s. Liz explains about Hayden and is eager to get back to the hospital. She promises to make it up to Franco later and kisses him. Obrecht sees them and jokes at how their display warms the heart. Liz quips, “And how would you know, it’s not like you have one.” After Liz leaves, Obrecht is eager to hear what lies she shared with Franco. Franco assures her they were talking about Hayden and is curious why Obrecht thinks she’s been arrested. Obrecht evades his questions and pleas to tell Franco what she knows to help Liz find Hayden. Obrecht promises him Hayden and Finn deserve whatever is coming to them after what they did to her.

Finn remembers the last time he saw her, when she walked out her office door. Curtis invites Finn to admit the truth, he’s still in love with Hayden. Finn does, and blames her leaving him because of how he treated her during detox. Curtis knows Hayden didn’t take his harsh words to heart and he shouldn’t blame himself. Jared walks in and Finn grabs him yelling, “Where is she?” Curtis struggles to keep them apart while Jared spews insults about Hayden to Finn. Jared thinks Finn should thank him for finding out she was a lying bitch. Curtis holds Finn off and punches Jared himself. They sit Jared down and question what he knows about her disappearance. Jared complains she’s just like her dad. They let him go. Curtis is certain Jared is not capable of finding Hayden. Finn’s not sure he can let her go with his baby and hints someone savvy like Curtis could track her down.
