Kendall refused to be scared away from her own company. Then, Zach hugged Kendall.

Kendall agreed and said that she would show Greenlee the limits to her power. Then, Kendall went to work and Josh stopped by. Josh wanted to check on Kendall. So, Zach told him about Greenlee's law suit. Josh felt badly for Greenlee, but did not think that gave her the right to destroy Kendall's life.

Josh said he could be an ear for Greenlee and help distract her from Kendall. Zach said it was worth a try.

Ryan was not convinced and wanted to talk Greenlee out of the suit. Annie encouraged Ryan to stay away from Greenlee because she was a bully that was trying to get attention. When Ryan heard this, he snapped! Ryan yelled that he did not need Annie to tell him about Greenlee. Annie looked shocked and hurt. Ryan apologized, but it was too late.

Jack snapped and asserted that all of this was Ryan's fault. Jack reminded Ryan that he faked his death and made Greenlee go through a miscarriage alone. Then, Jack said that Greenlee was in pain and acting irrationally. Jack felt that Ryan should understand her irrational behavior since Ryan tried to escape his problems by driving his motorcycle off a cliff. Then, Jack walked away and Ryan stood speechless.
Kendall and Annie were in the elevator at Fusion. Kendall was furious. Annie suggested that Kendall relax, so Greenlee could not get a reaction out of her. So, Kendall remained calm when she first walked in. However, Greenlee asked Kendall why she looked upset and distracted, so Kendall went off. Kendall said that the lawsuit was absurd because Greenlee left Spike and did not want him.

Ryan said that yes they did hurt Greenlee but it doesn't give her the right to ruin everyone's lives. Ryan suggested that since Spike has two dads, perhaps there is room for Greenlee in his life. Kendall said that Annie is Spike's stepmom and there was no room for Greenlee. Kendall told Ryan that Greenlee was making him feel guilty, but he said that the only way to make her stop is to let her in.

Standing alone in the Fusion offices, Greenlee briefly recalls her dream from the previous night before trying to shake the image from her mind. She calls out to see if anyone else had arrived to work. Kendall answers, and it's only moments before Kendall gets close enough to reveal that she has the sonogram picture from Greenlee's purse in her hand. Enraged, Greenlee demands to know why Kendall has it, and Kendall admits that it fell out when Greenlee's purse fell on the floor. She starts to ask what it means but loses that chance when Babe and Di arrive. The duo prattles on for a few moments before realizing that they interrupted a tense moment. They excuse themselves, allowing Kendall to ask the burning question. Greenlee tells her that she loves Spike just as much as anyone else, and then tries to change the subject back to business. Kendall stops her, saying that she wants to figure things out so that there will be no more tension. Kendall is incredulous at Greenlee's claim to love her son since she left before he was born, but her former best friend reminds her that her feelings didn't change because all of their plans went to hell. Kendall asks if Greenlee kept the sonogram picture to remember or to stay angry. Greenlee admits that remembering makes her angry, and then recalls all the time they spent daydreaming about Spike. She then says that although everyone thinks that she is about payback, the fact that she loved Ryan, and indeed, the love that she and Kendall shared with one another, is what brought Spike into the world. Kendall warns her that her son is real, not some doll to play tug of war with, and asks if she plans to go through with the custody suit. Greenlee doesn't see why she shouldn't, and wonders if perhaps she's not good enough in Kendall's eyes, even after yesterday. This causes Kendall to relive her dream that ended with hearing Greenlee cry. She admits that upon hearing that sound, she wanted Greenlee to experience the happiness and peace that she does. Greenlee tells her that she can consult with Zach since he makes all of her decisions, and that pushes one too many of Kendall's buttons. She throws her hands up in disgust and leaves, disgusted.
In the break room, Di marvels at how Kendall and Greenlee could so quickly be back at each other's throats after such a business success the previous day. Having plenty of personal experience, Babe notes that their situation is none too easy to deal with. There is hope, she goes on to say, but she didn't get there with Bianca without a fair amount of work. She admits to her hope that Kendall and Greenlee are blessed with the same fortune. They go back into the office and find Greenlee sitting at a desk, looking somewhat defeated. They try to cheer her up but Greenlee rebuffs them. Di takes herself back to the lounge to work, and Babe takes a moment to ask Greenlee if she'd ever thought about turning down the heat a little. Greenlee doesn't think that Babe has any room to talk, but Babe ignores her boss' snide comments and notes instead that if Greenlee asked nicely, she might get what she wants. Frustrated, Greenlee snaps her bag up from the table and takes off.
At the condo, Ryan finds one of Emma's dolls and is reminded of a discussion he had with Greenlee in his past life with her, where she was still hopeful that they would have kids, but he was adamant that it would never happen.

Shortly thereafter, Annie joins her husband in the living room, packing for their trip as their daughter plays in her room.

Clutching his son's bloody shirt, Adam recalls the threat made on his son's life moments before hearing his name ring out from Erica's throat. He shoves the shirt back in the envelope it came in and readies himself to deal with the TV host. She beats around the bush briefly before asking him if he is the suitor that offered up a million dollars to see her divorce go through. Adam thinks she is insane and offers to donate two million dollars to the Miranda Center if she promises to leave right away. Believing him impossible to deal with, she starts to take her leave, running into Zach on the way. She tries to get updates on everything going on by firing questions but not leaving enough time for answers. Zach simply looks at her amused and waits for her to finally leave the house. When she does, Zach chastises Adam for calling meetings that are suspect between the two of them. Adam blows off the brusque remark and tells Zach that he needs a major influx of cash as soon as possible. Zach wants to know what it's for and Adam lies, telling him it's a business venture with a small window of opportunity. A phone call on Zach's cell interrupts the exchange, and causes Zach to leave the grounds. He tells Adam he will think about his proposition, and follows Erica's newly abandoned path. Finally alone, Adam lets out his frustration that the kidnappers haven't called yet. He doesn't have long to vent before his brother joins him on the patio. Adam tries to get him to leave but Stuart is quick to refuse, knowing his brother's moods all too well. Stuart notes that Adam only gets really upset when it has to do with the people he loves. Adam keeps pushing but Stuart won't give up the chance to offer unsolicited advice, telling his brother that he ought to just forgive JR and tell him to come home. Pushed to the brink, Adam raises his voice one more time and sends his brother scurrying. Alone again, Adam re-watches the video of his damaged son, and promises to get that money.
Zach meets up with Kendall outside the Lavery condo, in preparation for dropping Spike off for vacation with the other part of his family. Annie lets them in after correctly thinking that she heard voices in the hall, and Kendall immediately drags Annie off and launches into overdrive, insisting that they go over what's been packed for Spike. With the men alone in the living room, Zach tells Ryan that it was a bad idea to give Greenlee access to Spike. Ryan reminds him that once upon a time, Zach was considered the one thing that would destroy the family, and wonders why it is that he got to stay, but Greenlee shouldn't be allowed in. Before Zach can really expound on his answer, there is a knock at the door. Ryan goes to open it and finds Greenlee on the other side, prepared to talk until she spots Zach. Ryan invites her in, and although she wasn't expecting an audience, she tells Ryan that her homecoming wasn't at all what she expected, and that caused her to lash out. Annie and Kendall, with Spike in her arms, join them in the living room in time to hear Greenlee say that she is dropping the custody suit. Kendall is incredulous but Greenlee tells her that she can't push her best friend away anymore. Zach asks what she wants in exchange. Ryan tries to deflect any potential blows, but Zach promises he means no harm. Greenlee thinks back to her dream once more for answers, but Kendall pinch hits and says that Greenlee wants what Ryan offered: their friendship the way it used to be. Greenlee admits that the only reason that she was horrible about the sonogram is because she felt weird and exposed, even though she had already decided to drop the suit. She promises to try to be better, and Ryan tells her that no one is trying to shut her out of Spike's life. He takes his son out of Kendall's arms, almost succeeding in handing him off to Greenlee before Kendall stops him. She tells everyone that she wants to be the one to share her son with Greenlee, and when she does, Greenlee is overwhelmed.
Back at the office, Erica checks in with her producer to find out the details on their latest segment. Everything is a go, and Jackson arrives at the perfect time. The producer leaves, and Jack closes the door behind her. He admits to Erica that he wants to hold her and kiss her like he had a few days prior. Erica thinks it's another in a long line of Jack's power plays, and readies herself to do battle. Jack denies that he wants that kind of confrontation, instead noting his plan to have the stylists make him aesthetically pleasing for his fans. Irritated by his flip manner, Erica goes to her office door and asks Pam to bring by the new Mrs. Jackson Montgomery. Erica interviews the first candidate for the cameras, all the while deftly counteracting any attempts on Jack's behalf to make himself seem less than desirable. The initial sit-down is followed by a string of other seemingly unlikely prospects, much to Jack's horror. They wrap things up and as the last candidate leaves the office, Jack asks Erica what the point was of her little display. Erica tells him that she thought it would be fun, given how much he enjoys his fans. Jack tells her that he doesn't want to play games anymore, and says that since she's been the mastermind behind everything, she can get back to him as soon as she knows what it is that she wants from him. He starts to leave when Milla, another potential suitor, arrives and starts to sell herself. The almost exes settle back in their chairs and with every new bit of information. Jack is more wowed by her. By interview's end, Erica is uncomfortable, and Milla is intrigued enough to want to continue their talk over dinner. Jack doesn't want to wait, makes it lunch and the two head off into the proverbial sunset. After sending the cameras away, Erica tries to rip into Pam about letting Milla through to Jack, but Pam has no regrets since their ratings have done nothing but rise. She shows Erica some paperwork which convinces her. She asks Pam to get in touch with Jack and tell him that he needs to be available the rest of the day, and when she does, she finds that Jack's time is already spoken for.
With the office down two partners, Babe casually chats with Jamie on the main floor, thanking him for bringing over some study materials. Noting that he didn't even attempt to hide his sadness, she asks if he wants to talk things over. Jamie thinks it would be slightly weird to talk about his love life with an ex, but Babe reminds that he did the same for her, many times before. Jamie admits that while he won't let himself start thinking that they have broken up, he acknowledges the pain he will have to deal with if that thought becomes a reality. Babe tells him that all of her failed attempts at saving her marriage to JR taught her that no matter what happens or how hard it is to deal with, you just keep living your life.
