Dinah's condition worsened as she enjoyed all of the attention from Hart. Fearing that the blood pressure pills would start to wear off, she took more. Vanessa told Bill and Hart that no one was to leave her alone and that whatever she wanted, she was to get. Meanwhile, Reva came up with a "plan" for Cassie to tell Hart about the baby.
