At the hospital, JR revealed that he knew that Cara's baby was alive and that she had lied to David about having an abortion. Cara explained that she didn't know what David would do if he knew, but she worried that David would damage her child. She swore that David would never find out the truth.
At the Chandler mansion, AJ and Miranda did their homework, and Bianca asked Miranda to take a break, so they could finish their earlier conversation. Miranda said that it wasn't a good time, but Bianca suspected that Miranda was still upset. AJ made an excuse to give the women some privacy, and Miranda scolded Bianca for clearing the room. Bianca contended that she considered AJ to be family, and she reminded Miranda that Bianca had intended to raise AJ with Marissa. Bianca reiterated that JR had put an end to that dream when he'd killed Marissa, and Bianca could never forgive him for it.
Bianca recalled how happy she, Marissa, and their kids had been as a family. She asserted that they'd had an amazing future, but JR had stolen it. Miranda said that AJ was also shaken up about JR being back, and she vowed to be there for AJ. Bianca sympathized with AJ, but she thought that JR was dangerous, and she forbade Miranda from being around JR.
Miranda questioned whether Bianca intended to lock her in her room, and she urged Bianca to get over Marissa's death. Bianca repeated that she could never forgive or forget what JR had done. The front door banged shut, and Bianca and Miranda turned and faced JR, Brooke, and Dixie. Bianca stormed over to JR in the foyer. "You son of a bitch," she growled, and she smacked him hard across the face.
Dixie and Miranda tried to hold Bianca back as Bianca raged that JR should be dead instead of Marissa. Bianca snapped that she'd prayed every day that he would "die and go to hell." She screamed that she hated him, and she angrily questioned what Marissa had ever done to deserve his hatred. As AJ looked on, Bianca ranted that Marissa had loved JR's son and had only wanted to raise a family in peace, but JR had shot her.
Bianca called JR a monster who didn't deserve a single moment of peace or freedom, and Brooke intervened. Dixie asked Bianca to leave, but JR stated that he had something to say. Bianca expected lies or excuses, but JR confessed that while he didn't remember the night of the shooting, he had been told what he'd done, and he was sorry. "Bullshit," Bianca spat.
Bianca berated JR for destroying people with his hate and then going on as if nothing had ever happened. JR conceded that Bianca had every right to hate him, and he didn't expect her forgiveness. He added that he couldn't forgive himself for taking a life, but he insisted that he was no longer the "first-rate bastard" he had been. He sincerely apologized, and Bianca softly said that she should go. Miranda noticed the stricken expression on AJ's face, and she proclaimed that she was staying. AJ retreated to the living room, and Miranda followed him.
After Bianca left, Dixie escorted JR to the living room, and Brooke asked if he remembered anything, but he didn't. Dixie stated that the trauma was responsible for his memory loss, and he might never remember. JR observed that Miranda had grown up as much as AJ, and Miranda apologized for Bianca's behavior, but JR assured her that it was okay. JR asked how AJ's pitching arm was, but AJ said that he wouldn't be able to play if he didn't do his homework, and he quickly exited.
Later, Cara arrived to see JR, and she offered to help with his physical therapy. He wondered whether she was concerned about his medical condition or just scared that he'd tell David about her child. Cara said that she trusted JR not to say anything, but she admitted that David was part of the reason for her visit. She warned that David blamed JR for David's stint in prison and Marissa's death, and she anticipated that there might be a time when she and JR would need one another.
In AJ's bedroom, Miranda told AJ that she hated that Bianca had gone off on JR, because Bianca wasn't the only person who'd lost someone. AJ thanked Miranda for trying to protect him, and she said that she always would. She picked up a guitar and wanted to play him a song that she'd written about her and AJ. As AJ gazed lovingly at Miranda, she strummed the guitar and sang a sweet tune about how they had always been there for one another.
Miranda concluded the song, and AJ was speechless. She asked him not to leave her hanging, and she assumed that he'd found the song dorky. He insisted that the song was amazing, and so was she. They hugged, and as they slowly parted, he tenderly kissed her. Miranda kissed AJ back, but she suddenly pulled away and said that she had to go. He protested, but she rushed out of the room in a panic.
Celia and Pete entered a hotel room, and she was astonished that he had whisked her off to New York City. Pete said that when he made a promise, he delivered. He mentioned going to an Asian fusion place and then hitting a club, but Celia hesitantly eyed the sole bed in the room. Pete noticed Celia's discomfort, and he replied that it was all hers, because he was a "chair sleeper."
Pete implored Celia to change clothes, so they could paint the town. She sheepishly admitted that she'd never been to a club, but he assured her that he was an expert. She realized that she couldn't go because she only had an overnight bag, and all of her clothes were in the suitcase that she had left behind. He declared that there was "an app for every crisis," and he reached for his phone.
Later, the bellhop wheeled a rack of clothes into the hotel room. Celia gushed that she didn't know where to start, but Pete pulled out a few outfits and heaped them into her arms. She carried them off to the bathroom to change, and she playfully modeled one dress after another, wobbling as she tried to walk in high heels. A clearly enamored Pete twirled her around and held her close. Celia finally decided on an outfit, and they prepared to leave.
After a night of clubbing, Celia and Pete returned to their room, and she gleefully danced around and giggled. She gushed that the evening had meant the world to her, and she flopped on the bed and asked what was next. Pete declared that it was time for bed, and she looked uncomfortable, but he clarified that he'd meant sleep. He turned toward the chair, but she said that the bed was big, and she suggested that he sleep on top of the covers. They prepared to spend an innocent night sharing the bed together.
David awakened Angie, who'd fallen asleep at Amy's bedside. He wanted to take Angie home, but she wanted to stay there in case Amy said something that could help Cassandra. David contended that Cassandra would need a strong, rested mother, and he offered to whip up some food for Angie at her house. He insisted on taking Angie home, and she relented.
At the Hubbard home, David suspected that Angie had been upset to find out that Jesse had held back the news about Cassandra, but Angie swore that nothing mattered but finding her daughter. Angie sobbed that she just wanted her baby home, and David consoled her. Later, David covered a sleeping Angie with a blanket. He watched over her and gently stroked her arm.
A woman tended to Cassandra and said that Cassandra didn't look so good. A blonde girl warned that Cassandra needed to learn to fake it. "If you can't handle some S and M and some pole time, there's a Dumpster with your name on it," the girl cautioned. Cassandra hoped that her parents would find her, but the blonde said that the women there didn't exist, because the men would use them up and throw them away once they were too broken and beaten.
Vlad advised Uri that it could be war to go up against the local pimp, but Uri snarled that he'd squash the pimp like a cockroach. Uri instructed Vlad to divide the girls between working at the strip club and turning tricks.
The madam told Billy Clyde about a new gentlemen's club that had been tearing business away from them with dirty stripping and kinky sex. Billy Clyde said that he would show them what a real gentleman could do with the Lord on his side. Billy Clyde contacted his religious cohorts to wage "a good Christian war against the infidels."
Jesse took a call at the police station, and he informed Zach and Lea that a suspicious white van had been spotted in Rosemont. Jesse told his men to hold back from approaching the van. A moment later, a look of disappointment crossed his face, and he reported that it had been a flower delivery. Later, Jesse got word that something was going down at a club in Center City.
Billy Clyde preached among a bevy of sign-carrying protesters outside the gentlemen's club. One of Uri's men ordered them to leave, but they raucously chanted to shut the club down. Uri's minion reported to Uri that they had trouble. Uri ordered his flunky to make sure all the girls were out of the club, and the man emailed Uri a photo of Billy Clyde.
Billy Clyde bellowed that he was shocked and amazed that the police had allowed the club to operate. The cops yelled that the party was over, but the protestors continued to rant, and the officers began to arrest them. Jesse was shocked when he recognized Billy Clyde.
