They kiss again and she says she is ready to be with him. JB promises to make her first time something special. He tells her he has to take care of some business but will meet her later for some privacy.

Sandy awakens in his room to find JB/Jonathan and a dressed up Tammy standing over him. Sandy appears shocked, and Tammy assures him that his surgery went fine, he'll be all right. She then introduces him to her friend, JB. Sandy starts getting agitated and is trying to talk but can't because of the breathing tube in his mouth. He starts to get really agitated when Jonathan suddenly starts kissing Tammy. The pair then leave the room. Jonathan sneaks off and finds a nurse. After kissing her, he hands her some pills. She tells him that she'll try to do what he wants.

Reva is at the hospital, ready to be discharged. She's talking to Ross about the hit and run. Ross tells her that they know it was deliberate. Reva wonders if perhaps Tammy wasn't the target--what if Sandy was? Ross tries to convince Reva to let the police handle this. He then leaves after getting a phone call. Just then the same nurse who met with Jonathan sees Reva and gives her the pills, telling her they're from her doctor.

Jonathan returns to Sandy's room alone. He tells Sandy how wild Tammy is about him and mentions about how innocent, how sweet she is. He then notes that all sweet things must go bad sometime. He then wickedly tells Sandy that he's not going to bed alone tonight. Sandy's visibly upset throughout but can't do anything. Before he leaves, Jonathan pulls out Sandy's call button monitor and tosses it in the trash.

Michelle meets with Sebastian and Blake at the Regency Hotel. Sebastian talks a little about their trip. He thinks it will be good for them; Michelle can learn about her mother and Blake can honor their father's wishes. He's dismayed to learn from Blake that Holly's not coming. She tells him that holly doesn't really trust him; she doesn't trust anyone who was connected to Roger. Suddenly, Sebastian admits that he was hiding something. He states that when he first came to town, it was with the idea of stealing from everyone. But once he got to know them, he couldn't go through with it. He asks Blake how Ross feels about her going away, but she states he's fine with it. She's more upset with Holly because she's ignoring her father.

Meanwhile, a torn Holly is in her office holding onto a gold coin that she thinks she should have gotten rid of a long time ago. She's "talking" to Roger, telling him that she's putting him to rest forever and tosses the coin in the garbage. Conflicted, she flashes back to Roger's rape of her and then the first time they made love several years after that. After asking Roger to let her go, Holly gets the coin out of the trash. She then goes to the Regency and tells Sebastian and Blake that she'll accompany them. She's hoping this will help her leave Roger behind. Suddenly, Blake gets a call from Ross asking her to meet him at the jail to talk. When she leaves, Holly asks Sebastian where they are going to go. He simply says "the past."

Blake finds Ross inside and open jail cell looking at paperwork. Blake is ready for an argument and starts to tell him that she's made her decision. She seems surprised when he accepts her decision and tells her he simply wanted to ask about the kids. He then kisses her. While they're kissing, he suddenly runs out and locks her in the cell! Blake demands to be let out, but Ross claims that he's just protecting. Blake thinks he's just afraid he'll embarrass him politically, but he denies that. He tells her he's afraid of losing her; he thinks Sebastian is up to no good.

Having left the Regency, Michelle is at the Lighthouse packing. Tony obviously doesn't approve of her trip. He tells her he doesn't Sebastian, he likes the situation even less when Michelle isn't able to even tell him where she's going. After a little more arguing, Michelle informs Tony that it's over between her and Danny. Tony wonders if it's really true, but an upset Michelle thinks he's just wondering what it means for her and Tony. Tony tries to get Michelle to talk to him, but she gets upset about everyone, him, Danny, Sebastian, wanting things from her. Tony maintains that he doesn't want anything. Michelle still insists that she's going on this trip and she doesn't need him anymore. She's going to live and hell with the consequences. Upset, Tony tells her to just go ahead and go. Ten, she kisses him passionately. While they're kissing, he says that if he was a good guy, he'd have her walk away since he knows this is just about her and Danny. But he never said he was a good guy, and he carries her off in his arms.

Jeffrey is at Towers, on the phone trying to get information on Sandy and Jonathan for Reva. While he's on the phone, Dinah walks in with all the files he asked for, pretty much disrupting his phone call. Just then Cassie walks in. Cassie sees Jeffrey and apologizes for getting upset earlier about him hiring Dinah. She now knows he was only doing it to keep and eye on Dinah--to protect Cassie and her family. She thanks him for what he's done for her. Jeffrey's about to say something, when Edmund walks in and interrupts. Cassie and Edmund then go to their table for their date. Jeffrey turns around and sees Dinah talking to his DC superior, Mr. Reynolds. Reynolds compliments Jeffrey on his work on the Salerno case and tells him the London post is as good as his. Jeffrey tells his boss that he can't leave; he has to help a friend, well, help a friend find someone. Jeffrey then resigns. Reynolds asks if it's about Cassie, but Jeffrey denies it. When Reynolds leaves, Jeffrey tells Dinah about his resignation. She thinks he did it just to be near Cassie, but she thinks he has a problem--he looks like the wrong brother. A little later, Jeffrey gets a message on his voice mail from Reva, asking him to come to the hospital. He starts to go, but gets distracted by Dinah. Knowing Cassie is nearby, Jeffrey warns Dinah to behave and then leaves. Of course, Dinah pays no mind, and goes over to Cassie and Edmund and offers them a gift for their engagement, a bottle of wine. Edmund accepts it as a gesture of goodwill, but a cold Cassie isn't as appreciative. She tells Dinah to stop insinuating herself into their lives and to get a grip. Dinah responds by telling Cassie it's just a bottle of wine and tells her to get a grip.

At home, Reva is getting very woozy. Suddenly, Tammy calls to tell her that Sandy's awake and asking for her. Back at the hospital, Jonathan finds Tammy just finishing her call to Reva. He tells Tammy that they should celebrate Sandy's recover. It's obvious that he wants to seduce her. Tammy seems to be for it and suggests that they go to Edmund's apartment. Meanwhile, Sandy is inside his room trying desperately to retrieve the thrown out monitor in order to call for help. Back at the Lewis house, Reva finally collapses. Just then, Jeffrey enters. in her condition, Reva mistakes him for Richard and tells him that they need to find their son. She starts to get upset about how they abandoned Jonathan and tells him they need to call Marissa. Wanting to calm her down, Jeffrey speaks in a English accent (as Richard) and tells her to get some sleep. He then calls the hospital and tells them about Reva's collapse and asks them to get a doctor over there. Just then Reva wakes up again. This time, she recognizes him as Jeffrey for a moment, then calls him Richard and goes back to sleep. Meanwhile, back at the hospital, an agitated Sandy is still struggling. A nurse finds him, muttering "Tammy...cousin...Tammy." To calm him, she gives him a shot.

Jeffrey goes back to Towers to tell Cassie about Reva. Dinah overhears him mention that he let Reva believe he was Richard in order to calm her down. When Jeffrey steps out on the balcony, Dinah follows and asks him how it felt to impersonate Richard again? The lucky man who got to go home with Cassie every night. Jeffrey tells Dinah she talks too much and pulls her into a kiss, which Cassie sees.

Tammy and Jonathan are at Edmund's apartment kissing. A concerned Tammy wonders how many girls he's been with. He tells her it doesn't matter, he's never wanted anyone as much as he wants her. Tammy states that she doesn't want to disappoint him. He asks her if she's scared. She admits that she is, this will be her first time. He assures her that this will be a night she'll never forget.

Meanwhile, Sandy has woken up at the hospital and is struggling to grab the phone. At the same time, Reva has a dream of a man clamping a hand over a frightened Sandy's mouth. She wakes up to hear someone at the door. Still groggy, she stumbles to the door and collapses in Josh's arms.
