Ryan asks Jonathan if he set the fire. Nearby, Zach listens. Jonathan becomes upset at the idea that he might have set the fire and that the surgery might not have fixed what it was supposed to have.

Zach, mistaking it as a sign of guilt, manages to get Jonathan into a headlock when Jonathan steps away from Ryan and backs up against the jail bars. Ryan, with the help of a guard, manages to free Jonathan from Zach's grasp. While Zach is ushered out of the area, Jonathan insists to Ryan that he did not set the fire. Later Ryan joins Zach in one of the interrogation rooms. Ryan warns Zach to stay away from Jonathan but Zach isn't the least intimidated.

Kendall confesses that she lied to Greenlee. She explains that she didn't tell the truth when she claimed that she wasn't in love with Zach. Greenlee listens as Kendall realizes that she was foolish to think they had a chance when it's apparent that Zach didn't even care enough about Kendall to check on her during her stay in the hospital. Greenlee keeps silent about seeing Zach leave Kendall's room and instead tells Kendall that she is better off without Zach in her life. Kendall sadly agrees until Anita walks in. Noticing Kendall's depressed state, Anita cheerily suggests that maybe Zach will cheer her up when he comes back to visit. Greenlee panics and immediately doubles over claiming to be in severe pain. Kendall sees right through Greenlee's attempt to keep Anita from talking and ignores Greenlee completely. She demands an explanation from Anita. After Anita tells Kendall that she and Greenlee had seen Zach leaving her room, Kendall dismisses Anita and confronts Greenlee with her obvious lie.

Kendall suddenly grows still as she realizes that Zach's visit could also mean that her dream had been real after all. Greenlee insists otherwise. Accusing Greenlee of acting out of jealousy, Kendall decides to find out if she had dreamed Zach's declaration of love or not.

Out in the hallway, Greenlee doubles over from real pain. When a hand reaches out to help her, Greenlee accepts and looks up to find Ryan standing before her.

Zach enters Kendall's room and asks, "You wanted me?" Kendall sits up in her bed and smiles at Zach as she slowly tells him, "Yes. I want you.""
