Margo is a captive audience as Emily claims to Molly to be Margo's friend, even as she says that Tom slept with her the night that Margo miscarried. Brad stays late at the construction site to "clear his head" of visions of Camille. John lectures a stressed Ben that no matter how many patients he saves, he can't save Camille from the cancer. Julia comes upon a distressed Camille, who relates the news that the doctors have given up on her. Molly is horrified when she spies Margo on the TV monitor. Emily runs out to the studio, where Margo stands frozen. Her cell phone continues to ring, as Tom wonders where she is.

Margo finally picks it up and listens to Tom's endearments, then hangs up. Eddie wants to drive Margo home, but she wants to handle it in her own way. Eddie hurls invectives at Emily before leaving. Molly mock-congratulates Emily for her machinations, showing her disgust. Camille explains to Julia that they're taking her off chemotherapy altogether in order to give her body--and white blood cells--a chance to recover. Meanwhile, her cancer will be able to spread unchecked. Julia tries to comfort the crying Camille but Camille is bitter--she knows cancer doesn't take a break. Camille walks off.

John counsels a frustrated Ben to have patience, reminding the young surgeon of his own bout with cancer. Camille walks into Ben's arms and asks him to take her home. Adam shows up on the rooftop to help his dad. He marvels at Tom's giddiness/anxiety and gives him the photo album he made for his parents' 15th anniversary.

Emily is smug, but Molly has had her own experiences with adultery, and reminds Emily that there's a reason she's called the "other" woman. Plus, Tom will be mad at her forever, not temporarily as Emily believes. Emily dismisses her employee, but Molly won't leave until she gets what's hers.

When an angry Eddie shows up, Brad exhorts him not to let women get too much under his skin. John offers to help, but Ben insists that he take care of his critical patient. He'll call her, he promises Camille before rushing off. Julia is sure that had Camille told Ben of her doctor's prognosis, he would've dropped everything for her. Camille thinks she has to prepare herself if she's going to be a doctor's wife. She tearfully compliments Julia for her beauty, for being undisturbed by the disease, then walks away.

Ben comforts the wife of his patient, who thanks him profusely for bringing her husband back, so that they can enjoy the simpler pleasures of their life together. Without family, there is nothing, she reminds him.

Brad admits to having broken his own rule once, about not letting himself get too close to a woman. Eddie is inspired by Brad's words and runs off to "fix" things. Emily is getting ready for Tom when Susan arrives. Emily snipes to her mother that soon she and Tom will be living together. Margo arrives on the rooftop and is embraced by Tom.

Molly is pleased by the highlight reel she puts together. Susan is incredulous that her daughter believes she doesn't love her. She owns up to having been a "rotten" mother in the past but won't take responsibility for Emily's present actions. She urges Emily not to be too proud to call her when things fall apart--and they will. A teary Emily tells Susan to stay out of her life.

A numb Margo listens as Tom tries to explain his frame of mind during the Eddie crisis. He also relates to her his desire to have another child, proclaiming his love for her.

Camille skulks around the construction site as more strands of hair fall between her fingers. She has a conversation with God, asking him how she has made him angry with her. All she wants is to have her life back. She revisits the scenes of her breast cancer diagnosis and the turmoil that has followed, begging for help.

Ben decides to rush home to be with Camille. Camille, meanwhile, knows that she can't fight the "monster" alone. She smiles tentatively as Brad comes upon her.

Emily is all dressed up. Waiting for Tom to arrive, she leaves the door cracked. Eddie knocks and then saunters in. Margo questions Tom about loving her and taking full responsibility for their problems before dropping the bomb. Why, if he loves her so much, did he sleep with Emily when Margo needed him most? Margo asks.
