Before Ian or Amy can reply, Eve asks Ian how long he's been sleeping with the Bitch.
Rafe wants Ali to understand that he can't tell her anything. Ali had convinced herself that the only thing that mattered was having him there. But when he disappeared, she was forced to think about what it was going to be like when he was gone for good and she doesn't think she can handle it.

Ali and Rafe are holding each other in the living room. She wants another story, but she wants it to be about when he disappeared. Rafe can't talk about it, but she was afraid it was her fault. She asks him if discussing having a baby did it. Rafe swears it didn't, but he does know for sure that they can't have a baby together. Ali isn't happy to hear it, but she understands. She wants him to promise that when he does leave forever he'll say goodbye to her, not just disappear. He promises, and the alarm on the stove goes off. When Ali goes to check on her muffins, someone pounds on the door. Casey enters begging for Rafe's help. Ricky thinks she's a tease because she disappeared. Ricky went off on her and she went off on him. She admits to Rafe that she pushed him away because she's afraid of the 5th chair being him.

Ian's pager goes off and he has to go to ER. He wants Amy to go with him, but she insists on staying with Eve. After Ian is gone, Amy tries to talk to Eve, but Eve doesn't want to hear it. All Eve knows is that she feels stupid for falling for the poor blind girl act. She invited Amy inter the house and treated her like a friend while Amy was scooping her husband. Eve tries to convince Amy that the only reason Ian looked at her is because she's needy. The needier, the more Ian can feel like a hero and he loves that. This angers Amy, and she's furious that Eve would accuse her of using her blindness to get a man. Eve orders Amy to leave or she'll blow her out of the water. Eve leaves Amy alone.

After she's gone, Ali wants answers. She remembers him acting like he expected someone to die. First Jamal, then Kevin. Ali puts it together that someone is going to die and Rafe knows it. He tries to deny it, but she wants the truth.
