Dinah finds Gus stoned out of his mind in his car after his crash. She moves him to the passenger seat then jumps behind the wheel so she can act like she was driving. An officer approaches and Dinah explains that her boyfriend was wired on coffee and made her so tense she pushed too hard on the gas pedal. The officer checks her license, says she did more damage to her car than property, and lets her go. She tells Gus, "You owe me." She takes Gus back to his room, telling him she won't cover for him again. Gus taunts Dinah by telling her that Mallet has probably been talking to Harley everyday since Gus has been gone and that the two will soon "hook up." Dinah slaps him. Dinah admits to Gus that she and Mallet are engaged. Gus decides to call Harley, but Dinah says now is not the time. Gus admits that nobody would want him the way he is now. Dinah insists that Harley can help him through this just as she had helped Dinah. When she says they will start by flushing his pills, Gus tells her that has already been tried and nothing will work until he's able to have the pills in front of him and walk away on his own. She leaves after telling him that whenever he is tempted to get a fix from the pills, focus on Harley, the kids, and his future. After she's gone, Gus picks up the bottle of pills and says, "Don't you stare at me like that." He begins cleaning up his room, while keeping his eye on the bottle of pills. He picks up a picture of Harley, cleans it off and places it on his table. The pills are in his focus again.

Mallet meets his former partner, Regina, at Company. Regina is the officer Mallet had an affair with that led to his and Harley's divorce. She apologizes for getting in contact with him but she's been getting threatening notes. After comparing the threats that have been delivered to his and Dinah's room with the ones Regina has received, Mallet determines that it he is the target of the threats, not Dinah. Apparently someone he and Regina had put away is now out of prison and has revenge toward them planned. Mallet lets it slip to Regina that he's engaged, but asks Regina to keep it quiet. When she asks him why, he responds that he's really not quite sure.

Frank comes into Company with a DVD of "The Law" episode featuring Mallet and tells him his favorite part was the end when Mallet and Dinah get engaged. Franks teases Mallet by acting out the scene. They laugh, Mallet looks embarrassed, and Frank suggests they have a party the night the show is aired. Mallet doesn't think it will air, but Frank tells him it's out of his control now. Ha, Ha.

Mallet and Regina are leaving Company when Regina gives Mallet her key in case something should happen to her. She thanks and hugs Mallet while Dinah looks on.

After Coop proposes marriage to Lizzie outside of Company, the two go to the courthouse to get a marriage license. They run into Ava's who is there to apologize to her date, Jerry, for the lousy evening. When she learns that Coop and Lizzie are there to get a marriage license, she ends up being the witness to the signing of the papers. When Ava leaves, visibly upset, Coop suggests to Lizzie that they go immediately to the Justice of the Peace and get married then. Although Lizzie obviously wants a different kind of wedding, she tells Coop she knows he's just going through with the marriage because of the baby, so they can go to the JOP. Coop assures her that he's not doing it just for the baby, but for the three of them. He wants a real family, with more kids later down the road. He agrees they should have a traditional wedding as long as Lizzie promises to keep it simple. She is ecstatic.

After Reva fell on Main Street, Jonathan picks up things that spilled from her purse and insists she go to Cedars to be checked out. While in the examining room, Jonathan is being the dutiful son, helping Reva fill out her paperwork. She wishes he would be the dutiful father and own up to everyone that he's the father of Lizzie's baby. She says he will be abandoning the child and he tells her it's too late. And she sends him off saying, "Fine, let some other guy raise your child. I did it. Why shouldn't you?" In the hall, Jon pulls from his pockets the things he had picked up from Reva's spilled purse. He finds her medication for the side effects of chemotherapy. He returns to her room and confronts her with the medication. After several denials, she finally admits that she has cancer. Jon immediately has trouble keeping back his tears. He asks her how bad it is and she indicates that it could be better. He breaks down in tears and she asks him not to be afraid for her because she's not. When he asks her how Josh is handling it she reveals that no one knows except for Jon. He gets angry and calls her a hypocrite for insisting he come clean about the baby when she won't even tell her own family about her illness. Reva doesn't believe it is the same thing. Josh says that if Reva won't tell Josh, he will. Reva says she'll come clean to Josh if he comes clean about the baby. She tells him that she's not telling anyone, and neither is he. He leaves and Reva cries aloud, looking at a picture of Josh. Jon can't leave the hospital and returns to her room. They hug and Reva apologizes for laying all this news on him. He asks her what she needs. She replies that there is something she needs him to do for her.

While a song with the lyrics "it don't come easy" plays in the background, we see Dinah observing Mallet and Regina, Gus looking at the bottle of pills, Lizzie catching the bouquet of a young woman just married at the courthouse, Coop looking nervous but composed, Frank offering a sundae to a distraught Ava, and Reva having a heart to heart with Jon-telling him what she needs him to do for her. He is nodding.

Ava states that if she was a different person, she'd beg him not to go through with the wedding. But she's not that girl. And he's not the kind of guy to walk away from something he has to do even if she asked. Gently, Coop says goodbye and leaves. Alan and Buzz are watching from the window. Alan insists that something has to be done to stop this wedding. Looking at Buzz, he states that he doesn't think Buzz is going to stand in his way. Meanwhile, Frank is now outside with Ava discussing Coop. Ava is depressed because Coop deserves more than just to "settle". Frank points out that that is true for Ava as well. He tells her that she deserves a good life as well and assures her there is someone out there for her.

A very nervous Josh is at straightening out the cabin preparing for a television interview. He points out to a mocking Billy that this interview is very important since it will generate publicity about the project. Just then he gets a call from Reva telling him she can't make it to the interview. Josh isn't too happy about this since he was counting on Reva, a known television personality, to be with him. Reva tells him that Jonathan needs her help; it's important. She suggests that Cassie sits in for her. Before Josh has a chance to object, Reva hangs up. At that point, Cassie enters and is told she has to sit in for Reva. Cassie tries to decline, stating that Billy would be a fine choice, but Josh pleads with her to help him. While Cassie continues to try to beg off, Billy asks why exactly is Reva not here. Billy's tone is awfully accusatory and Josh picks up on that. Josh accuses Billy of purposely trying to fine cracks in his marriage and insists that he and Reva are fine. Later when Josh is out of the room, Cassie accuses Billy of causing trouble. Billy brings up the fact that she has feelings for Josh, which Cassie insists is not true. Billy suggests that the reason she won't do the interview with Josh is because she's afraid to be near Josh. Cassie denies it and when the reporter arrives, Cassie volunteers to sit in. The interview goes well, with Cassie speaking warmly about Josh.

As for Reva, she's with Jonathan in his room at the Beacon for an unpleasant task. She needs Jonathan to shave her head since her hair keeps coming out in clumps due to the chemo. Reva finds out that Coop is marrying Lizzie and tries to talk to Jonathan about it but he wants to focus on the task at hand. Reva's having trouble though and decides she needs a few drinks to go through with it. Her nerves settled, Reva starts reminiscing about her hair. However, it will grow back.

She's wearing a blonde one (cut like her natural hair) and has a red one for fun. .

Her stroll down memory lane gets Beth upset; she doesn't want to hear it. She states that no one is going to hurt another one of her children.
