Dr. Escobar pressed Sally to tell Wyatt the truth, and Sally revealed that she was dying. Escobar became frustrated, and Sally asked if Escobar wanted Sally to admit to Wyatt that it was all a scam.

Sally continued her ruse with Wyatt and Flo, hoping to buy herself time to win Wyatt back. Shauna showed Quinn the video Shauna had taken of Bill and Brooke in the cabin.

When Wyatt presented the idea to Sally, she figured Flo had put him up to it. Flo persisted in trying to get answers from Penny. Alone in Penny's office, Flo pulled up Sally's files and gasped, unable to believe what she was reading.

After reading Sally's medical file, Flo tossed a fake snake in front of Sally, and Sally jumped all over the room in terror.
