Harley is sitting outside Company and Gus walks up. They act very awkward toward each other. Then, Harley lets him know they have to talk. Gus wants to put it off and she agrees that they can, for about ten seconds. They start making casual conversation, she asks how Eden is and he replies fine. Gus tells her that he was unable to donate blood for her because they weren't the same blood type. Harley says it's a shame he couldn't give pints and pints so Eden would owe him again. He tells Harley that she has everything that she wants, Eden can go to Phillip and she will get Zach back, but she asks "What if that's not all I want?" They play the "what if" game and she informs him that meeting with Phillip wouldn't work because of the Spaulding vote she just cast. They agree that they have a problem. Gus says he can't arrest his sister because she took a bullet for him, and Harley concurs that she won't arrest her if he doesn't want her to. When asked where it leaves them, she replies "It leaves us nowhere." Harley starts telling him a story of how most girls have a "Prince Charming" plan and she never did because she never liked to make things up. They only man she could ever depend on was Frank. Every time one of those "non-princes" broke her heart, she thought to herself "see you were right, there is no Prince who is going to take you away." Then she met Gus and he turned out to be the Prince that she never let herself dream about. She admits to giving up on relationships that were all wrong, but she doesn't understand why she has to give up one that is so right. Gus tells her not to "give up on us." Crying, Harley tells him that he is her Prince but more than anything else she wants her little boy home again.

Buzz and Marina are working and he is trying to understand why she is in such a hurry to grow up. He talks to her like a friend and tells her that being an adult isn't all it's cracked up to be. "Yes, you get to make your own decisions, but you have to live with your mistakes." Marina admits that Ben might be a mistake, but she has to make them to learn from them! Buzz explains to her that unlike Harley and Frank, she has people around her to catch her if she falls. She asks if "that is a bad thing?" He answers "Check back with me on that."

Marah, Shayne and Josh are in the Courtroom upset because they didn't get a chance to tell Reva goodbye the way they wanted. Out in the hallway, Frank escorts Reva away from the bailiff, apologizing but he has to start processing her immediately.

Josh goes up to the bailiff wanting to know where Reva is and he is told there no contact permitted now.

Reva is taken to the prisoner processing room. There she is photographed and fingerprinted. She signs what is to be assumed to be as her statement. They dump her purse, inventory all its contents. They take her shoes, and all of her jewelry (including her wedding rings). Reva asks if they are done and Frank answers that he has to turn her stuff in. As he leaves, she thanks him for his patience with her. In walks a guard from the prison bureau, Mertry, and he isn't pleased with Reva's cheery attitude. He lets her know that he is taking her to a correctional facility at Vailsburg not to camp.

Josh gives the kids a "Lewis" pep talk. They come to terms with the fact that they have survived without their mother before and they will do it again. Frank comes in and Josh begs him to let them tell her goodbye. Frank apologizes, but she is now out of his jurisdiction. Josh continues to beg and finally Frank agrees to see what he can do, but if he can get Josh in, there is no way he can get the kids in too. He informs Josh that he needs to stay out of the way until he can get the man from the prison out of the room. Frank opens the door and walks into an empty room. A disappointed Josh looks in. He get upset and starts yelling at Frank. After realizing that he is upset at the person trying to help him, he stops and asks to be left alone. Frank leaves and in walks Mertry and Reva. Josh lies to him saying that HE is Frank Cooper and needs to discuss Reva's testimony regarding an important case. Reluctantly Mertry leaves them alone. They are hugging, kissing and Josh puts the horse hair ring on her finger. He starts making promises of visitation and appeal. Outside, Frank comes up and is stopped by Mertry. After realizing that he has been duped, they rush into the room. Mertry drags Reva away listening to Josh tell her that he and the kids love her. Josh angrily punches the wall and apologizes for impersonating Frank "because I couldn't think of anything else to do!" Frank tells him "alright man" pats him on the shoulder and leaves. Walking through the courthouse Reva tried to dawdle, looking to see if Josh is coming after her. Mertry barks at her "The van is this way." and drags her off.

Edmund follows Cassie and accuses her of wanting "this" to end this way. They argue and she admits that she feels guilty, he calls her a hypocrite. They are still arguing about her forgiving Reva. While he is talking about delusion, she is talking about compassion and love, things that he obviously can't understand. He tells her that pain in the only thing that matters, the pain Reva has to feel. Cassie says she was wrong, he will never be the kind of man Richard wanted him to be. She tells him to wait and see, she will save her sister! As she leaves, Edmund remembers burning the living will and replies to no one in particular "I don't think so, Cassie."

Marah and Shayne arrive home and are discontented with the quiet. He tells her to turn on the radio, and just as she is about to the doorbell rings. She goes to answer it, with Shayne yelling "If it's a reporter tell them to leave, okay?!" Marah opens the door to Cassie. She want to know if she can come in and if they are okay. Shayne tells her that Reva always says "Better late than never." Cassie says she knows that this has been hard on everyone, and Shayne interrupts "But we all have to take that first step." Cassie agrees and says well here is the second step: "I am going to get your mother out of this mess. I don't know how, but I know it starts with me."
