Inside Tea's old room at Kitts Hospice Greg is shocked to see Eli. "You were expecting someone else?" Eli asks and pats the bed. "This is where Tea took her last breath. Too bad she couldn't come back from the dead." Eli gets out of bed and demands that Greg help him. He admits Ross helped him fake his death. Eli reminds Greg of what family does for each other and says, "Look what you're doing for yours." Greg pushes for answers. Eli explains how he let Blair find his gun, which was loaded with blanks. "You were assuming she would shoot you?" Greg asks. Eli confirms Greg's theory and is glad John McBain doesn't realize the truth. He admits he intentionally started the fire and Ross helped to pull him from the collapsing roof. Ross then planted another body in Eli's place. Greg wonders why he returned to where Tea died. "That's where you come in," Eli replies and threatens Greg with Ross' possible presence in Llanview. "Who's to say he isn't circling your family right now." Greg tries to stand tall against his threats but Eli stops him from leaving by saying, "Not so fast."
