While Mallet showers, Dinah holds his silver gun and tries to convince herself that she didn't see Griggs. When Mallet finishes his shower, he tries to assure Dinah that Griggs is in prison—confirmed by the phone call he placed to Amsterdam officials. As Mallet is leaving for work at the station, Dinah says she'll just be hanging out in their room. Instead, she goes to Cedars to see her doctor. When she tells him her latest symptoms, the doctor says if her "hallucinations" happen again, she should try to take note of what Griggs is wearing, his cologne, etc., in order to see if there is a pattern that triggers her memory. When she walks outside the hospital, she again sees Griggs. He speaks to her. When she tells him he is a figment of her imagination and she begins to write down notes as suggested by her doctor, he grabs her arm. Having been physically touched by him, Dinah reaches for the silver gun and shoots Griggs. She bends over him and touches his wound, getting his blood on her hand. She wraps her hand in a sweater to hide the blood and finds Mallet on Main Street. She tells her husband that she has shot and killed Griggs and takes him to the scene of the shooting. Griggs is no longer there. Likewise, there is no blood on Dinah's hand. She can't believe that she had imagined the entire thing. Mallet takes her back to their room where she tells him she feels stupid. Mallet says that she's not stupid. He tries to get her to realization that it is just a medical condition that they can deal with, with the help of her doctor. When he leaves to return to work, Dinah follows after him with his keys. In the hallway she once again sees Griggs who walks past her.
At Towers, Alan is spending some time with Emma when Reva arrives. Alan tells Reva that she is playing with fire by harassing Olivia. Reva is surprised that Olivia is letting Alan spend time with Emma. Alan tells Reva that since her children are grown and gone and her sister is marrying her ex-husband it is time for her to move on. Reva tells Alan will soon ruin the new family he is building at the mansion with Rafe and Natalia and Gus. Reva goes home to Cross Creek where she is met by Cassie. Cassie wants to find out from Reva if Reva encouraged Dylan to pursue his first love, Harley. She tells Reva about Harley being drugged. Reva is certain that Dylan had no part in it and has Cassie leave. Reva goes to Olivia's where she threatens to turn her over to the police if she doesn't have Alan back off.
Cassie leaves Reva and finds Rafe on Main Street. She warns him that he should leave Alan's house in order to save himself from the destruction that Alan causes. Rafe mentions that there are several photos of Phillip throughout the mansion. Cassie refers to Phillip as Alan's chosen one and tells him to ask Alan to tell him about how Phillip died.
At Cedars, Harley is convinced that Natalia was behind her drugging. Cassie says perhaps Dylan was involved. Cassie goes off to confront Reva about Dylan and Harley leaves for the Spaulding mansion.
At the Spaulding mansion, Gus breaks away, after a few moments, from Natalia's kiss. He tells her that despite the fact Harley kicked him out of their house, he doesn't think their marriage is over. While looking for antacids in Alan's desk, Gus comes across a prescribed bottle of valium in Alan's name. They both dismiss the prescription as they briefly talk about Gus's one-time addiction to painkillers. Natalia suggest that Gus take Rafe to a ball game to take Rafe's mind off being in a new school. Gus says he will, just not today.
Alone and reading in the study, Natalia is soon visited by an accusing Harley. Harley tells Natalia how she learned that she was drugged the night of the big family dinner. Natalia denies any involvement and Harley believes her. Alan and Gus interrupt the two women in the study. Harley announces that Alan drugged her with valium. Gus pulls the bottle of valium prescribed to Alan from the desk. Everyone begins to put the pieces together. Alan admits to his misdeed, saying he doesn't regret it one bit—not if it meant having Gus and Natalia together and Harley out of their lives. Everyone is appalled. Olivia calls Alan and he answers it via speakerphone. Expecting praise from Olivia, he is shocked when she tells him, where everyone can hear, that she wants him nowhere near her or Emma. At that moment, Rafe enters wanting to know what is going on. Natalia tells him that his grandfather did something bad to Gus and Harley that almost wrecked their marriage. Rafe begins to leave in a huff when Alan calls out to him, "Phillip, wait, don't go!" Again, everyone is shocked. Gus takes Harley's hand and the two leave together. Alan tries to persuade Natalia to get Rafe to come back. She tells Alan to stay out of her and Rafe's lives.

Inside the Light: Divine Intervention
As Reva is in the midst of planning a renovation of Cross Creek, Billy comes over to inform her that due to a technicality, her divorce from Josh was never filed. An employee of Lewis was scamming the company. She never filed any paperwork—including the divorce. Billy thinks maybe it's another chance, but Reva groans that it's just a technicality. She takes the paperwork to Jeffrey, who tacitly suggests that she may use this information to carve a pathway to Josh. Reva swears he's wrong. She calls Josh several times and then goes to see Cassie, who's at Harley's house.
Reva shoots the breeze with Cassie, apologizing for interrupting the wedding etc, trying to figure out whether she really wants to tell her about the divorce papers or not. She gleans from Cassie where Josh is. Instead of telling Cassie about the divorce glitch, she takes herself up to the retreat to give Josh the divorce information in person. After being led to Josh's bedroom, she tells the deacon that she is Josh's wife in order to get a visit with him. She asks for the visit to be a surprise and stretches out in a guest room, waiting for Josh. Reva yells at a pocket photo of Cassie and Josh that she didn't stop their wedding on purpose. The French doors leading outside open. In comes a rain soaked Jeffrey. Reva asks what he's doing there. "Divine Intervention...?" he replies.
Jeffrey knew that she would run straight to Josh. Reva rebuts that she didn't run. She thought about it. She's doing it for Josh and Cassie. Their marriage can't be legal until the divorce is. Jeffrey calls her a coward for jumping back on the Josh train at the first inkling that there might be a chance with him. Reva asks him why he cares. He's just the guy she's sleeping with, Jeffrey retorts. Reva claims to like their relationship because it's different and it's new. If she feels that way, Jeffrey tells her to stop waiting for Josh to come through the door. Instead be glad that he (Jeffrey) did. Reva says that she is and they kiss.
Jeffrey sneezes and Reva decides to get him out of his wet clothes and into the bed. He's freezing. As she wraps him in bed, she claims she's not a coward. He's just insecure. Jeffrey wonders why she keeps chasing her tail around. News flash, Jeffrey says, Josh isn't the same guy she met back in Tulsa. Reva undresses, climbing under the covers. He tells her that she's been through a lot and she's changed, too. They giggle and snuggle under the covers together when the French doors open again.
The deacon that brought Reva to the room comes in with a group of others and is shocked to find Reva and Jeffrey half naked in the bed. They scramble to dress, explaining that Jeffrey is her lawyer who came up to get her to sign some papers to build a soup kitchen for some orphans. He was soaking wet, so Reva tried warming him with body heat. They try to leave, but the deacon says that they can't because of the storm. He tells them to join "the circle."
After praying in the circle, the deacon asks the participants why they came to the circle. Reva says that she is spiritual. She believes there is a destiny in all of us. Jeffrey comments that some times our destinies really are not what we think they are. Reva rebuts that she won't know that till she's done looking. While she's looking for the answer, Jeffrey says that the answer has moved onto something else. Jeffrey starts to convulse and claims that he's feeling the power of the circle. He wants to testify about Reva and her power to change him, "this sinner." He says that before Reva, he always was looking for something better. Meeting her taught him that some times what you're meant for is not found in the past or future. Some times it's right in front of you. The deacon calls him a dedicated body. Jeffrey asks for an "amen." Reva says, "Amen." Since the storm passed, they decide to leave. Deacon Jones wants to know what to tell Josh. Reva says to tell him that the Lord works in mysterious ways.
Back at the Beacon, Jeffrey and Reva can't get into his room. Ava opens the door. She explains to him that Olivia has evicted him for leaving her at the police station alone and for following Reva out of town. Reva has an idea. She asks him to move in with her.
Alone at Cross Creek, Reva hopes that Jeffrey likes country western music. She flips it on and scurries to straighten up the place. Meanwhile, Jeffrey talks Ava into letting her back into his room to get his things. She wonders if Jeffrey knows what he is doing. He swigs on a huge bottle of tequila, convincing himself and Ava that it's no big deal. He and Reva know what they are doing.
Outside Cross Creek, Jeffrey takes another tequila swig. Meanwhile, Reva stares at the clock. Changed into her lingerie, she quips to herself that she should have known. Jeffrey almost knocks but an impatient Reva swings open the door. They stare at each other and the lyrics to the song playing sing, "Here I go down that wrong road again..."
The first night together is awkward as Jeffrey and Reva become accustomed to each other. She learns he is not a fan of country music. Jeffrey wonders at Reva's attire because he just plans to wear jeans. She says there are no rules—except no drinks on the furniture without coasters. She remembers two or three more rules and Jeffrey wonders about carving in the furniture, referring to the mantel. Reva tells him that there might be a few reminders around, but she plans to remodel. Jeffrey takes her into his arms, telling her not to change a thing. She goes to make up the guest room and he makes himself another drink.
The next morning, Jeffrey and Reva run into more small issues like which part of the paper each one likes to read first and how they like their bacon. A woman comes to the door, looking for Jeffrey. She's a client/lover who Jeffrey canceled his appointment with. He assumes Ava told her where to find him. Reva insists he go help her with whatever she needs. Reva and Jeffrey share a house, not a leash. Besides, she mentions how she has a meeting with a lawyer today about her divorce. When he hears the attorney's name, Jeffrey recognizes this attorney as a Barracuda with the ladies. Jeffrey's client sticks her head back in the door and Reva urges him to go do his thing and she'll go do hers.
On Main Street, Jeffrey is all business with his client, Sam, discussing the possibilities for her shop on Main Street. Sam is more interested in putting their heads together back at her hotel room. He tells Sam that he can't. Sam guesses that it's because of Reva. Jeffrey admits that she is more than a roommate. He's really not sure what she is, but he owes it to himself to find out. In case things change, Sam offers her cell. Once she leaves, he tosses the number.
Meanwhile, Reva meets her attorney at Towers. He tells her that her divorce is as good as done and then offers to buy her dinner. Reva awkwardly skirts through the restaurant, explaining that she's a one-man woman. Her lawyer, Mitch, thinks she works fast. She replies that it's someone that she's known a while—a friend who became more. If things change, Mitch offers his cell. Once he's gone, Reva rips up the card. She runs into Billy.
Billy wants to know how the remodeling plans are going. She says that she has started in the guest room. He remarks that she is taking it slow. Reva says no. In fact, she went ahead and refiled the divorce papers.
Mel finds Jeffrey on Main Street. She thinks that he must have put the moves on someone and she turned him down. He tells her that it was really the other way around. She laughs in his face when he says that he moved in with Reva. He wonders how to make it work and still stay friends. Mel advises him to do as she did not: Treat her like a date, not a roommate, romance her more, not less, and never take her for granted.
Back at Cross Creek Jeffrey almost knocks, but he remembers he can use his key. He finds Reva lounging on the sofa with a book. They ask each other how their days went. Each admits that they were made personal offers but turned them down. Jeffrey slides onto the couch, presenting her with a bouquet of flowers. He tells her that she's more than a roommate. She wonders what she is. "More," he tells her. "Much, much more." They kiss.
