She says that she knows that he is hiding something and when she finds out what it is, that no one will be able to save him and his family. He opens the door for her to leave and then says to himself, “What is happening to this town?”

Lizzie walks in on Bill and Ava in bed. Ava jumps up out of bed saying “Lizzie”, but Bill just stays there saying that Lizzie won’t be back for awhile. Then Lizzie says that he is a selfish pig. Bill realizes that she is in the room and asks Ava is she looks mad. Lizzie starts throwing the things that she bought for Bill and then she calls him on the things that he said about dumping Ava for something real. She can’t believe that he would stoop this low, then he tells her to stop making everything about herself. He says that sleeping with Ava has nothing to do with her and if all she is going to do is act like a jealous wife, then she can get out. Lizzie runs out of the room and Ava follows her. Lizzie tells her that she can have him. Ava then brings up that the anniversary of Jonathan and Sarah’s death is coming up. Lizzie gets defensive and then Ava tells her that it isn’t her fault that she has a lot of baggage and that Bill wants someone that travels light, then she leaves.

Reva is looking at a picture of Jonathan, Tammy and Sarah, commenting that it has been a year and then goes over to Lizzie at Co2. Lizzie tells her what happened with Bill in his room and then says that she just wants to belong to someone too much, then she takes the picture that Reva is holding and says that she knows why. She says that she threw away all of the calendars hoping that this day wasn’t going to come. She tells Reva that she doesn’t think that she can make it through this anniversary. Reva tells her that they should go to the memorial so that they can say goodbye. Lizzie starts to have some stomach pains and says that she has just been really upset lately. Reva takes her to the hospital and while they are waiting, Lizzie tells Reva that she is done with Bill. After Lizzie goes back to see the doctor, Reva calls Jonathan to tell him about Lizzie making herself sick over everything that has happened. She then pleads with him to promise to her that he will not come there. Inside the hospital room, the doctor says that she wants to run more tests, then ask Lizzie if there is a possibility that she could be pregnant.

At the police station, Doris holds a press conference to tell everyone about what Coop did as Frank questions Coop. He tells Frank what happened and then Buzz comes in to see Coop there and realizes what has just happened. Buzz calls Bill to tell him that it was Coop that caused the explosion. He tells him that Coop didn’t know that anyone was in the trailer and that he was drinking because he was angry about Company. Buzz tells him that he is calling as an act of good faith, Bill thanks him and then hangs up the phone. Bill doesn’t tell Billy and Dinah what he now knows about the explosion. He tells them that he is through talking about it and wants to go home to get some rest. He tells Dinah that he knows who did this to him. They talk about how Coop will probably get off easy because of all of the Cooper’s on the police force and Jeffrey being the D.A. Bill then says that if he can’t walk away from this that Coop won’t either.

Frank tells Coop to call Mel and he will do what he can to help him but he may not be able to this time, now that Doris is in charge. Buzz talks to Doris about Coop and asks her to not exploit him, to just let him take his punishment like everyone else. She says that Coop deserves whatever he gets. Buzz goes in to see Coop, Frank pulls him out of the room to tell him that he is looking at attempted murder and then realizes that Buzz knew that Coop was responsible. Ashlee goes in to see Coop and he tells her that he turned himself in so that she wouldn’t have to be scared anymore, they kiss as Doris watches and the reporters take pictures. Doris goes in the room to tell Ashlee that she can’t be in there. Then Doris goes back to the reporters and tells them that she will ask that Coop get a fair trial and that it was not an act of violence, just an error in judgment. Ashlee thanks Doris as Frank tells Coop that he will see what he can do to get him out of there. Buzz tells Doris that it was decent of her to do that and she says that she wants the public to see her as fair and merciful, not harsh and vindictive.

Alan goes over the plans for the memorial with Ava, telling her that he wants the town to know that they are still grieving for Sarah.
