Drew and Kim are with Oscar at the hospital. They leave when Joss arrives with a gift. It’s a five year planner and the first year is filled out for them. He muses about how much things have changed in the past year. Oscar still wishes his parents were back together and looking after each other. Out in the hall, Kim and Drew talk about this being the last week of the drug trial. If he isn’t getting better, Drew says, they’ll have to squeeze the world into the rest of his time. Michael bumps into Willow in the corridor and they chat about the holidays. He admires her for speaking about her son at the meeting. They imagine what it would be like to see their children grow up. She sits down and explains what it felt like to lose her child. Willow dreams of holding him again. Michael dreams of Jonah too and tells her how great Wiley is. She’s startled by the name and nearly cries when he shows her a photo.
Olivia drops by Charlie’s and is surprised to learn that Leo and Julian were making snowmen all day. Later, Joss shows up. She and Julian discuss Oscar. When he says he’d like to help, she suggests he give up Kim so she can reunite with Drew. He won’t walk away from Kim. She accuses him of being selfish and suggests he let them be a family while they can.
Obrecht drops by Pentonville to see Nelle and wonders where her baby boy is. Nelle insists he was traumatized and died. Liesl doesn’t buy it and wonders how grateful Michael would be to learn the truth. Nelle says that he and Carly don’t deserve to raise her child. The doctor demands to know where the baby she delivered is and threatens to go to the cops. Reluctantly, Nelle details what happened and how she gave Brad her baby. Dr. O assures her that the truth will remain unsaid until she needs to use it.

Later, Lulu arrives with gifts for her mom from the kids. Laura keeps worrying about what’s wrong with Kevin. Lulu tells her that the police think that Kiki and Mary Pat’s murders could be connected. They whisper about this but Carly eavesdrops and then interrupts. When they spot Ned, they drag him over and ask him about a serial killer being on the loose.

Olivia pulls her aside and suggests she write a positive story for once. Ryan and Ava arrive.
