Kendall is stunned when she finds out that Jason, the young guest on Erica's New Beginnings show, is totally deaf, just like Spike. She watches in stunned silence for a few moments as the interview progresses, but then accuses Zach and Erica of setting her up. When the interview is over Erica, obviously pleased with herself, comes over to gauge her daughter's reaction. Kendall is incensed that once again, the great Erica Kane has tried to control everyone around her. Zach supports Erica's effort, saying it wasn't control, but rather a way to show her that her son could lead a normal life despite his hearing loss. Not being able to process everything quickly enough, Kendall prepares to leave the studio. Before she can go, Jason calls to her and asks if they can speak before she leaves.
Derek visits Annie and Ryan and asks that they come down to the morgue to see if the man that overdosed is really Richie Novak. Ryan assures Annie that there is no rush, and Derek simply asks them to come down when they are ready. He leaves, and Ryan tries to make Annie aware that everything will be all right. He tells her that if her brother is indeed dead, then all of the horror she has been living through will be over. Annie tells him that he is wrong, and then dismisses that tack, instead choosing to focus on her disbelief that Richie could get into drugs. She tells Ryan that it's so unlike her brother because he never liked being out of control. She tells him that she can't believe her brother would have changed that much in prison. Ryan tells her that they will only know for sure by seeing if he is really at the morgue. She takes another turn at blaming herself for what happened to her brother, even though Ryan confirms his belief that she did the right thing by saving her brother from himself.
Although she is terrified to see a dead body, Babe is able to go into the morgue by holding Wes' hand for support. They are only in there for a few moments, and when they emerge, they confirm that the corpse is of the man who held Babe at knifepoint. Derek arrives just then, and Babe overhears that Annie and Ryan will be coming down to the station. Derek confesses that the dead man might be Annie's brother, and Babe feels compelled to stay. Wes offers to stay as well, but Babe notes that this will be hard enough on Annie without a stranger hanging around. Wes agrees, and then writes his phone number on Babe's arm for her use should she need it. Annie arrives in short order with Ryan trailing quickly behind. Although she is appreciative of Babe's offer to stay, Annie promises that she will be fine because she has Ryan with her. Babe hugs her and makes her promise to call no matter what happens. After her co-worker vacates the premises, Annie tries to ready herself. She pauses before going in to say that if she positively identifies her brother, her only choice will be to confess what she did to get him sent to prison. She thinks that she will need to go to prison for perjuring herself, but Ryan tells her that Emma and Spike need her more. He promises to help her through if it turns out that she did actually lose her brother. She then walks into the room where the body is covered by the sheet, and after checking in with her visually one more time, the medical examiner pulls back the sheet. Before she can comment, she faints.
Babe wanders to the Comeback, where she finds Wes waiting for her. He offers to fetch a drink for her, but she begs him not to leave her alone. She tells him that she thought she was prepared, but seeing the would-be robber's face took her right back to that night, and the feel of the knife against her throat. Wes tries to comfort her by saying that he would protect her, and that she would be around for many years to come to watch her son grow up.
While working inside the Comeback, Krystal apologizes profusely to Stuart for kissing him the way that she did, guaranteeing him that she only acted in that manner because she believed that his brother was impersonating him again. Stuart rambles on about how Adam still really loves her and just doesn't know how to show it. He also confesses that the twin switch was his idea this time. Krystal doesn't believe him at first but after he hotly insists that he doesn't lie, Krystal accepts it as fact. However, Adam's deception makes her angry, and she reminds Stuart that Adam's brand of love is something that she can do without, especially given what he did to her while she was in labor and Jenny shortly after she was born. Stuart tries to convince her that she needs to give Adam another chance, but Krystal is back in her mindset that she can never have a future with Adam.
Adam gets a delivery at the mansion, and after opening it, asks the staff member to get Colby's old room ready, as he expects the young girl to spend nights and weekends at the house, and will eventually move back full time. Tad breaks up his gleeful mood by trying to convince Adam that the way he loves his children has never worked because he drives everyone away. Adam blows him off in his typical style, saying that he would get his children back someday because only so much nonsense (such as what is witnessed in Tad's house) can be tolerated. Tad calls him on the truth, saying that Adam not only wants his children back but he also wants Krystal. Adam denies it, and continues to give Tad a hard time about wanting his family for all of these years. He takes it one step further and says that deserved to lose Kate and that it was his punishment for fathering a child with another man's wife. Tad is tempted to retaliate but barely resists the urge. Instead, he tells Adam that he will no longer be allowed to violate his house the way that he did when he showed up unannounced. Adam promises that he has no other reason to come there now that his daughter is coming home. Tad dares to challenge that theory, noting that there is much more in the house that he wants. Seeing where he is going, Adam questions his protection of Krystal and while Krystal enters the foyer unnoticed, Adam asks if Tad is in love with her. Pausing but for a moment, Tad admits that he does, much to Krystal's shock.
