Bo opens the box of cupcakes they brought, and Lindsay takes Matthew in the kitchen to get some sodas and set everything up. While they're busy, Bo and Nora bond over how good a kid Matthew is. She then tells Bo that she plans to go see Kirk at Statesville and asks him not to question her about it. Bo doesn't like the idea, but Nora won't take no for an answer. Just then, Michael and Marcie arrive so that Lindsay can babysit Tommy, but when they see that she's busy, they offer to take Tommy on their date with them. Lindsay tells them not to be silly and insists that she watch Tommy for them. She then thanks Bo, Nora, and Matthew for celebrating Jen's birthday with her, and they leave. Michael and Marcie say they should leave, too, and Lindsay practically kicks them out of the gallery.

Tate visits Kirk in Statesville and tells Kirk he's there to make sure that Kirk taking the rap for him is the last stupid thing Kirk does.

He continues that the only reason he confessed is to protect Tate because he loves Tate no matter what Tate believes. Then they discuss how Tate came back from Wyoming a completely changed man. Kirk is disgusted, but Tate believes he's doing the right thing. He starts propagandizing about being part of a war, but Kirk tries not to listen. After his spiel, Tate again asks Kirk what he's taking the fall. Kirk says that he wants to give Tate a chance to redeem himself, but Tate will hear none of it.

Nora rails at Kirk for the attacks and says that his crimes have only made the victims stronger. The only thing she can't understand is how he could raise a son and know what unconditional love is like yet still attack other people's children. She goes on, saying that the things Kirk did are tearing up his son and that he'll lose Tate. Kirk tells Nora that losing his son is the greatest loss he's ever had. She glares at him, tells him that he makes her sick, and walks away.
Adriana returns home looking sullen. Layla asks her if anything is wrong, and assumes it must be something about Tate. Adriana tells Layla that Rex is still worried about her. Layla agree with Rex, and asks Adriana how she knows that Tate isn't like his father. Adriana reasonably suggests that Tate wouldn't have gone into business with a black woman and a Latina if he was racist.

Natalie is embarrassed and thinks that she's a loser. Vincent starts chuckling at the idea that Natalie thinks she's a loser just because she doesn't have a handful of guys chasing after her. They banter a bit and he gets Natalie to laugh. He then gets introspective, saying that the attacks are what brought him and Layla closer together. Natalie then realizes that she just has bad timing.

Miles insists that John and Marty are just work colleagues. Roxy mentions how John tends to date his colleagues, and notices that Miles is getting jealous. She then digs into his marriage and realizes that he's like his brothers by getting married rather spontaneously in Las Vegas. Miles is insulted by this. Roxy apologizes, and then notes that Miles isn't anything like John either.
Roxy doesn't understand why Miles isn't home with Marty. She asks him why he married Marty and if he made Marty an offer she couldn't refuse. Roxy then starts to ramble about how whirlwind romances can turn sour at the drop of a hat and notices Miles having a reaction to that statement, too. She's surprised that his and Marty's relationship has turned sour already. He just tells her that they haven't had a honeymoon yet, but they will eventually.

Despite John's prodding, Marty remembers nothing else about the night in question. She concludes that she must have killed Spencer, but John's not convinced, especially given the lack of blood on her that night. Yet they both can't figure out why she remembers holding the bloody scissors.

He continues to talk about "them" as she keeps ordering him out. She's not interested and offers to call the Palace. Regrettably, Dorian shows up before Viki can get David out of her room.
