Buzz asks Michelle what her goal is in making the men relive their painful pasts. Michelle tells him that she and the other ladies only want them to tell the truth so they can help them. Buzz screams at Michelle to let this go because when the truth comes out the fall out will be on her head.

Philip has a daydream in which he talks to himself about a competency hearing. Philip's other self asks why he abandoned his family. Philip shouts back that he didn't abandon his family. The other self asks Philip why he is hiding from the world. Philip shouts back that he is sick and is trying to get better. Philip's other self asks Philip what he wants in life? When Philip comes out of his daydream he says "all I want is to love and be loved by someone."

Outside Company, Ed arrives and tells Buzz to lay off Michelle. Buzz demands that Michelle tell them the name of the person who told her about the accident.

At Ravenswood, Christopher tells Olivia he thinks Philip is on his way to recovery. Olivia asks Christopher what he might say about Philip's condition in the event he had to testify at a competency hearing. Christopher says that Philip is clinically depressed but he is no longer psychotic and is on his way to recovery. Christopher also says he believes Philip can understand what people tell him and knows the difference between reality and fantasy. Christopher thinks Philip isn't talking because he is protecting himself and giving his body time to heal.

At Marianne's grave, Alan wonders if Marianne is at peace.

At Carrie's place, she goes through photographs she has in a manila envelope.

Cassie tells the reporter she is Danny's business partner and she thinks he would make a good mayor. Cassie also says she is going to throw Danny a party on Election night. Jeffrey admits to Cassie he goaded her into a fight about Danny so that she would endorse him for mayor.
