JENNA and HARLEY are still locked in the "freezer." Harley is trying to convince Jenna that she has a workable plan to get rid of Jeffrey. Jenna finally agrees to go along with it. They agree that nobody else can know about this plan. When they come out, Buzz is there asking what they were doing in there. They make up an excuse. Jenna calls Jeffrey to have him meet her in the country club bar. Harley tells Buzz that Jenna did not mention him while they were locked in the freezer. He suggests they have a party that night but she says she has a date with an old girlfriend from high school. She keeps insisting that she and Mallet are fine. Later, Jenna tells Jeffrey that she was meant to live the good life spending his money. She suggests that they forget about a New York heist and do something smaller and safer. They dance. She suggests that Jeffrey order another bottle of champagne while she freshens up. Harley runs into him spilling her drink on him.

ANNIE is being wheeled into the hospital. ALAN is with her. She is in severe pain and wants to know where Josh is. (Of course, he is already at Cross Creek with Reva.) Two policemen are there and say that they are not to leave her side. When she leaves the hospital, she will go straight to jail for perjury. After Rick takes Annie to an examining room, AMANDA comes in to see if she can help Alan. She says, "You have got some real feelings for Annie Lewis." Alan tells her that he has finally found someone who needs him. Rick tells Dr. Sedwick that Annie needs surgery; she has a massive uterine infection probably because of carrying the dead fetus so long. Later Rick reports to Alan that Annie is still in surgery and that she has had a transfusion. He suggests that Alan go home, but of course, Alan won't leave. Later still, Rick tells Alan that she will make a full recovery but they found her condition was more serious than they thought. It will hit her very hard and she will need someone to be with her.

JOSH and REVA are at Cross Creek. Josh says nothing will ever come between them again.

He tells her how scared he was that the trial wasn't going to go right. They talk about eating but end up dancing instead. Flashback to the first time they made love and to their wedding day. They make love.

Annie is having bad headaches in the hospital. She yells at Alan, telling him that she is barren and is never going to get over *that* pain. Annie yells at the doctor; she wants a heavy-duty pain killer, but they will only give her aspirin because she's a recovering addict.

Then she steals a narcotic and takes it instead of the aspirin.

As she puts it, they can't build their dreamhouse with Little Miss Nightmare waiting to haunt them.

Alan returns to Annie's hospital room with a sandwich and sees she's done a total Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde. Now she's perky and tells him that two little pills have done the trick. He thinks she means aspirin....
