Lizzie is doubled over in pain in her room. At first Tammy thinks she is faking it, but realizes something really is wrong. She insists on taking Lizzie to Cedars. At the hospital, Lizzie learns she has suffered from false labor pains and that she and the baby are okay. When the doctor asks if Lizzie wants him to call the father, she says no. Tammy thinks Jonathan should know, so she leaves the room to call him. While Tammy is gone, Lizzie gives the doctor Coop's phone number and asks him to call Coop. When she calls Outskirts, Tammy learns that Jon has taken his passport and left town. She's stunned. When Coop gets the call about Lizzie and the baby, he and Ava decide to go to the hospital although they were in the middle of a very passionate moment and the construction site of Harley and Gus's future house.

Tammy returns to Lizzie, telling her about Jon's departure. Lizzie says good riddance. Tammy admits that she still loves Jon and knows that Lizzie's baby is also a part of him so she wants to make sure the baby is okay. Beth and Alan arrive at the hospital after Alan has told Beth that Jon's no longer a problem. Jon's gone for good. Beth briefly thinks maybe Alan has had Jon killed, and they joke about whether either one of them would mind if he were dead. Beth seems to feel confident that Jon's out of the picture. While Beth and Alan are in Lizzie's hospital room, Tammy comes in to inform them that Jon's no longer a problem because he's left town. Alan says that Jon's leaving is quite fitting for his character in that he runs out on Lizzie and the baby.

Tammy leaves the room to make another call. She asks the person on the line to please meet her, that she needs them to be there. It turns out to be Cassie, who has left a frantic Josh at Company. When Alan and Beth leave Lizzie's room, Beth runs into Ava and Coop in the hall. She tells them that only one can go in at a time and sends Coop in to see Lizzie. Lizzie is happy to see Coop and the two share the sounds of the baby's heartbeat on the monitor. Coop tells her that he can't shake the feeling that he's the baby's father. Lizzie says that maybe it's a sign that the three of them should be together-her, Coop, and the baby. She says that during this latest trauma, she felt she was going to lose the most important thing in her life. When Coop says, the baby, Lizzie corrects him and says, "No, you Coop."

Earlier at Company, Blake runs into a distracted Cassie. Blake picks up on that Cassie has her mind on a man. Cassie confesses her feelings for Josh, although she swings back and forth about whether or not she's in love with him. Just as she's asking Blake about what's not to love about Josh, Josh enters Company, visibly upset. Blake leaves and Josh joins Cassie. He goes on and on, frantically, about all the things they need to do concerning the project and says that Reva's no longer involved. When Cassie presses him, he says that it's now just the two of them-Josh and Cassie.

Josh went to Company after his unpleasant encounter with Reva at "Cross Creek." Reva, having decided to go to Minnesota for the experimental cancer treatment, was packing her bags to leave town when Josh arrived. She told him she had to leave town to do research that would get her back into WSPR and would being going on a whirlwind trip that included Minnesota, Paris, and Oklahoma. Although he repeatedly begged her to be more clear in her plans, she continued to sidestep his questions. In frustration, he shouted that she was selfish! Just then Billy arrived to take her to the airport. Josh, insulted that Billy knew more than he about the spontaneous trip, left in anger and went to Company.

Left at "Cross Creek," Billy tells Reva that he still thinks she's still wrong by not telling Josh. Reva says she'll get all better and return to Josh whole and ready to help him. She looks at a picture of Josh and promises to return to him. Meanwhile, after Cassie has left Company to go to Cedars, Josh calls Marah in Paris. He learns from her that she knew of no plans on Reva's part to visit Marah, Dylan, or Oklahoma. Josh is very upset.

Josh then goes to the cabin where he overhears Billy ending a call--with Reva. Josh acts disgusted and Billy tries to tell him it is not what he thinks. Josh asks what is it, then.

Later, Billy is gone and Cassie arrives. Josh asks Cassie if Reva told her why she was going to Minnesota. Cassie says if was to check at a news story. Josh says that is what she told him to, but she told Billy she was visiting a friend. Cassie suggests that means one of them is lying, but Josh doesn't discount that fact that it could be both of them. All he knows is that Reva is hiding something.
