At the hospital, Jake told Cara to leave, but she insisted on seeing the little girl, who was thrilled by Cara's arrival. Tad and Jake bickered about Cara.

As Griffin listened via earpiece, Kendall blocked Ricky's efforts to consummate their relationship. Griffin made a noise in the hallway to distract Ricky. She insisted on leaving but indicated that his patience would be rewarded. She and Griffin fled. Back at the safe house, Kendall and Griffin discussed ways to get back into Ricky's room to get to his computer. She decided to lie down for a while but couldn't shake the gross feeling of having had Ricky's lips on hers. Griffin reassured her that Zach would understand why she was doing what she was doing. Griffin stroked Kendall's hair as she slept.
