At Sunset Beach University Hospital
Vanessa is in Tyus's office and asks if the results are done, because she was getting worse and wouldn't be able to hide it from Michael much longer, because if he sees her arms he will see how ugly she will end up. Tyus tells her not yet, but encourages Vanessa to be patient and wait for her test results before assuming the worst. Tyus then told her he doesn't think she is ugly, in fact he thought she was very beautiful. He apologizes and says it wasn't very professional of him. Vanessa told him that's okay, it was still nice to hear and wishes Michael would say the same thing. Tyus told her the only way to find out would be to tell him. Vanessa told Tyus how her mother warned her to never to fall in love because if she ever got the disease it will only hurt the people you love in the end. She then explains how she can't let Michael take care of her if it turns out that she has the disease. She wouldn't want him waiting on her hand and foot, plus he has always wanted children and it would tear him up if he couldn't have any. "Mom was right," she cries, "I should have never fallen in love." Tyus says forgive me Vanessa, but your mother was wrong about everything. Tyus then told her that he knows she is terrified but shutting off your loved ones is not the answer, adding that Michael will be more hurt if you shut him off. He then told her to trust in Michael's love for her and tell him, because he's sure her mother would tell her the same. He finishes by telling Vanessa that nobody knows what her mother was feeling when it all came down.

Virginia is on the phone with Tyus's assistant and told her that even though she doesn't have an appointment it's imperative that she sees Dr. Robbins today. The assistant manages to squeeze Virginia in and she thanks the assistant. However, Michael overhears her making an appointment with Dr. Robinson's nurse and ask her if she is okay and why does she need to see Tyus. Virginia told him she didn't want to have to tell him until she talked to Tyus. It's probably nothing, she's just been having some medical problems which require attention and didn't want to worry him and Jimmy. Michael asked her how sick was she. Virginia told him she didn't want to burden him. Michael told her she is like family and he would help her through it and would never desert her no matter what. Virginia hugs him and told him that is exactly what she was afraid of, that he would put his life on hold to help her. As Michael comforts her, Virginia has a satisfied smirk on her face. She then leaves for the hospital to up-step her plan........Back At The Hospital, Tyus's assistant brought Virginia into his exam room and told her that he will be along shortly. Once she is gone, Virginia went and looks into the cabinet at the skin specimens, and is just about to open it when Tyus walks in and says okay lets get started. Virginia went into her act about working a lot of overtime and trying to make a future for her and Jimmy and told him that she may just be feeling a little fatigued. Tyus told her he knows how difficult it is being a single mother , but added that he thinks he knows what is bringing on her sickness and suggest that it has something to do with Vanessa. Michael is moving in with Vanessa and he knows she is upset about it. Virginia tells him he is wrong, because she made peace with Vanessa. Tyus told her that this is him she is talking to and he knows when she is hiding something. He then told her she has a classic case of mild depression about raising Jimmy alone and he knows how much she relied on Michael for help. His words move Virginia and he told her that it was bad enough that she lost her husband and now she was losing Michael too. Virginia starts crying and tells him he was right, it's never gonna be the same without Michael around all the time. She apologizes for falling apart on him. Tyus told her she can always fall apart with him. Sticking back to her plan, Virginia asked Tyus to give her a minute to pull herself together. Tyus gets up to leave and tells Virginia she can call him away from the office if she ever needs to talk. Virginia thanks him and once he's gone says she thought he would never leave. Then she pulls out Lena's skin sample and says I won't have no more tears once Vanessa finds out she has Martin's Syndrome, because she will leave Michael before he has a chance to unpack his toothbrush. Virginia hears Tyus coming and hurries and puts the skin samples back in the cabinet and shuts it. Tyus gets a file and asked her again if she was going to be alright. Virginia tells him she just needs a little more time. Tyus told her take all the time she needs and then exits again. Virginia switches the petri dishes in Tyus' office but loses track of which was Lena's and which was Vanessa's. Positive that she knows which one is Lena's she puts the "V.H." sticker on it and hopes she was right. She then leaves before Tyus returns again and says all she needs to do is wait for the test results.

Cole said his hair sample and then accuses Gregory of hiring the stalker to obtain the hair sample. Gregory laughs it off telling Cole there is no sense in him denying it, I did it. You found me out, I should have known I couldn't hide it from someone as smart as you. He then told Cole that he is far too busy to be caught up in Cole's little games he has real work to do. Cole doesn't buy any of it and tells Gregory he liked to know what is going on. Gregory arrogantly told Cole that he use to be a jewel thief and he probably has lots of enemies, because after all the Deschanel family have always been losers. Cole says nothing but gives Gregory the suspicious eye. Before he leaves, Gregory told Cole that if he ever were involved in such a hair raising (laugh) escapade, what would make Cole think that he would be smart enough to catch him.
