Jude told Sara to tell Meg that she has some spread sheets he needs, and he told Sara she never answered his question about dinner tonight. Sara wants to know if this is an official date. Jude doesn't know what an official date is, but says he's not trying to put the make on her. He's just tired of room service and says if Sara agrees to have dinner, she just might be his first official friend in SB. Sara says she can be that. Jude says dinner at 7:30 then, at the Deep. Sara went back to Casey who says he stopped by to tell her he saw her dad earlier and they're starting to get their friendship back. He hopes she doesn't mind.

Ben says he did see her and followed her here because he wanted to talk to her in private. They walk out to the Gazebo and Meg told Ben to get to the point as to why he's here. Ben told her he was wrong to kiss her, tell her he missed her and lean on her. Meg agrees. Ben says he's here to apologize from the bottom of his heart. He hopes Meg can forgive him, again. Meg says they can both consider it forgotten. Ben says there's just one more thing. He told her how he's changing Benjy's last name to Evans. Meg says that's the right thing to do.

Antonio told the Monsignor how the AB was transferring him to a monastery and he figures he better still leave tonight. The monsignor says he can't because there are going to be lots of questions about this accident and if Antonio went away, he won't be able to speak to anyone and answer the questions so they might think they're trying to cover something up. Meanwhile, Gabi is telling Ricardo how the press is all over the place and will go over every detail to figure out what happened. Ricardo figures this is great because he now knows how to get his revenge. Gabi told Ricardo she's worried about Antonio since the media will play out his mother's involvement in the accident and Antonio could get hurt. She's afraid they'll try and dig up anything, perhaps even make up lies to make the story more interesting. Ricardo thinks this is really great. Antonio and the Monsignor come over and Antonio wants Ricardo to tell them why the AB was sending him to a monastery. Ricardo needs a drink of water. He thinks to himself that no one can know he saw the tape. He has to keep all this to himself. Gabi feeds him some water. Ricardo told Antonio it doesn't matter why he wanted to transfer him since the AB is gone now. He told Antonio to let it go. the monsignor thinks that's a good idea and told Antonio he can't go since there are no papers saying he was supposed to go. Besides he's needed in SB so he can answer any questions the media might have. Ricardo is thinking that there's going to be lots of questions, very soon. Antonio and the Monsignor walk away. Gabi told Ricardo, she'd like to know what the AB had to say to him, but Ricardo says he can't tell her encase Antonio heard.

She says her cards say the danger that threatened her sons is gone but there's more sorrow in its place. Maria picks up the cards and says their running her mother's life. She says they drover her out of the house and into her car. Carmen figures Maria is blaming her for killing the AB, but Maria says no. Ricardo, Gabi, and Antonio show up at Carmen's place. Maria told them that Carmen keeps blaming herself for the AB's death. Carmen told Antonio she's so sorry. Antonio told her she's not responsible. Maria says she wishes there was something they could do.

Gabi says that losing the AB was a tragedy for everyone. Maria wishes there was something they could do. Antonio says they can all pray as a family. He asks his mom to lead in the Lord's Prayer. While she's reciting it in Spanish, Ricardo is thinking that his mama and Maria forgave Antonio for sleeping with Gabi.
