She jokes that he is calling her easy, which he swears he never would. He seriously asks her if she thinks that they can work together at Lewis. She says that she knows that they can do it. They leave.

Reva tells Sandy that she is glad that he can share stuff like that with her. Sandy says that Reva and Josh are the only people he can share stuff like this with since he thinks of Reva as a mother. Reva asks if he would be upset if she told him not to marry Tammy since they are so young. Sandy says that he has to ask her since he loves her and he knows that she is the one for her. Reva tells him that if he tells Cassie that exact same thing that they will have a fighting chance. Sandy says all he needs is a chance and leaves.

Cassie tells Tammy that she will always be her little girl and Tammy finds comfort in this. Cassie says that she won’t push Tammy to tell her anything else. Tammy tells Cassie that she really feels as if Edmund is one of the bad guys and Cassie agrees. She says that Cassie is “one of the good guys” and asks what made her fall for him in the first place. Cassie says that she thinks it was partly wanting to save him from himself. She tells her that she ignored all of the bad stuff because she wanted to be loved as much as what she was with Richard. She tells Tammy to stick with the good guys and says speaking of the good guys as Jeffrey calls her. He starts to make excuses about work and Cassie deducts that he is not going to make it to the baptism. He swears he will make it up to her and hangs up. Tammy realizes that Jeffrey is not going to make it and Cassie tells her that sometimes the good ones are almost as bad as the bad ones.

Jeffrey realizes that he is going about things the wrong way and decides he needs to meet face to face with the guys that are threatening him so he can face with the real threat that is Edmund.

Jonathan finds the letter from Dinah and starts to read it out loud. It states that she is sure that he has noticed that she is gone and says that there is a reason for that.

Marina starts to escape but Edmund stops her. He asks her what she is doing in his room and she jokes that she is moonlighting as a maid or that she is going to bust him for the controlled substance she found. He asks her if he didn’t warn her to focus on Danny and asks her if she knows what the risks are. She says she knows what she is risking and he asks if she really does. Edmund tells her that there are differences between seeing risks and taking risks. He grabs her arm as the maid from before walks in and asks Marina what she is still doing in the room. She apologizes to Edmund and tells Marina to get out. He realizes that she is holding something and forces her to give up the syringe. Once she gets outside, she opens her hand to show that she has kept the cap of the syringe. She calls the station to order a trace test on the cap as Edmund comes out to make sure she is gone. He says to himself that she is becoming quite the problem.
