Beth refuses, and he promises to make it all up to her. She says she'll "take a rain check" because she has to go get fitted for her dress. She tells him to rest and leaves. As soon as she's gone, he takes out a duffle bag and leaves. Beth tells the fitter she is glad she is late, and that she'll be back in 20 mins. Beth head's back into Edmund's bedroom.

Setting: Reva's Living Room

Reva says it frustrates her not to see Marah in her dress, but she is "learning to appreciate life in different ways." She can hear the "sparkle" in Marah's voice and analyzes her perfume. Reva correctly guesses the color of her dress in lavender, and says she hopes Josh is taking lots of pictures. She hopes it will be a be a night Marah will always remember. Marah does too (i.e. plans with Tony). Josh remembers giving his daughter a lunch box, and Reva is sad because it happened on one of her times away. Josh tells a story about her wanting a dress from a store window when she was little, and how he promised to buy it for her for her prom. He says that even though he didn't get to go shopping with her, she'll be the most beautiful girl there. They hug, and the doorbell rings. Tony arrives and is taken back by how wonderful Marah looks. Josh says his "sentiments exactly."

Tony gives Marah her corsage, and is very nervous. Josh whispers to Reva that Tony even remembered to buy a corsage. Tony gets ready to pin the corsage on, and whispers something sweet (and in Spanish) to her. Although he tries hard not to, he sticks her with the pin. He kisses her and she tells him he is sweet. Josh whispers to Reva that it's "getting too sweet for him." Shayne is ready as well, and Josh takes more pictures. Reva tells Shayne to behave himself, as it is Marah's prom. Reva kisses the kids, and Josh talks to Tony, who promises to take extra care of Marah. They leave. Josh says "that's that." Reva says "another milestone", and wishes she could see it. He promises to get double prints for when she regains her sight, and asks her about her vision. She says she is doing fine, but nights like this are very difficult. Josh says he is going to go meet Olivia at the Country Club, and asks Reva what she is doing. She teases him that she will be "pining away alone." He leaves, and Reva is really sad. She bumps into the coffee table and shoves it aside.

Edmund asks her to promise to never come there again, and she agrees. He says he will see her in a house, as he has things to do. She will be at the fitting. After she leaves, he picks up the duffle bag and enters the cell. Cassie is pretending to be resting, and sits up when he says hello.
