Ford only wanted to find a way to rescue his brother and admits it killed him to see her with James. Langston doesn't know what to believe. Ford knows Langston deserves the best. He doesn't know how to give it but says, "I want to learn." Ford wants her back and vows to do anything to prove he can be trusted. "Like what?" Langston asks. Ford takes her in a kiss!
Walking through the park Starr gets a text from Cole and says to herself, "I'm mad at you!" James appears and asks if there's anything he can do. Starr doesn't think it's a good idea. If Starr did want his opinion James admits he'd have to side with Cole. He was just trying to do the right thing. James assures Starr that if Blair's anything like her she wouldn't let Eli get the best of her. As James showers Starr with compliments it appears as though they are going to kiss until Todd texts her. Starr looks upset and has to leave. James offers to go with her. She wishes James luck with his studies then rushes off. James takes his shirt off, lays on a picnic table and studies for his GED.

Just as Dr. Wright tries to talk her out of it, since the baby isn't in danger, Viki appears and wonders what's going on. After some pleasantries Dr. Wright leaves.

"Where's Tea?" Shaun demands. Greg explains that things are taking longer than expected. Destiny lashes out at Shaun who apologizes to Greg. Over talk of Dani Greg admits she's hurting dearly. Destiny cries for Dani. She suggests she and Nate bring Todd and Dani some food. Shaun doesn't think they're ready for company. Greg begs to differ and offers to buy everything on the menu.

Vivian explains that it's never easy for a doctor to lose a patient.
At the Manning Estate Dani finds a souvenir and remembers her time with Tea at the fountain in New York City. Todd joins her and says she'll always have her memories. Dani thinks her memories suck. She hates Tea now and always will! Tea was selfish and left them! Todd begs Dani not to talk about Tea like this. When she continues Todd grabs her and demands that she take back everything she said about Tea! Dani refuses and thinks Todd should hate her too. He admits he's upset and screams, "All right I hate her! But I also happen to love her!" Dani cries and apologizes. She weeps when she realizes she broke the necklace Tea gave her before she left. Destiny and Nate arrive and insist on seeing Dani who rushes into their arms. Even though Todd trashes Greg Destiny hugs him tight and says, "I'm sorry for your loss, Mr. Manning." Viki, Jessica and Starr arrive and express their sympathies. Todd pulls Starr aside. Dani needs her sister. Starr wouldn't be anywhere else right now and says there's something Todd needs to know about Blair. Across the room Viki thanks Destiny for her gesture.
