At the Cohen house, Sandy makes coffee and says the boys will be right down. The Assistant DA Caldwell has come to interview them. He says the DA is getting a lot of pressure to prosecute, and the parents at the school are concerned. Sandy says there is nothing to prosecute, Marissa was protecting others. Caldwell says the DA doesnt want to go after Marissa. Sandy says Ryan is innocent. Caldwell says Ryan is the one with the track record, not Caleb Nichols ex step-daughter. Sandy says she saved Ryans life. Caldwell asks what Ryan was doing there? His own brother tried to rape his girlfriend. Caldwell says they have cause. Sandy says and they have witnesses. Caldwell says the only witnesses are Ryan, Trey and Marissa, and Trey isnt talking. Sandy says if they go after Ryan then Social Services will take him. Caldwell says that explains Marissas reason to cover. Caldwell asks where Kirsten is? Sandy says out of town.
At the rehab center, Kirsten is in a meeting with other patients. The doctor tells Kirsten that her progress is remarkable and she is a model patient for others. Kirsten says she doesnt know about that. Kirsten says Shelly is better at poker player than her. Kirsten says being here has given her the clarity to understand why she turned to alcohol. She shares why that was, and it begins and ends with her dad. She says he was an amazing man, but controlling. She says she was living his life and not hers, and no matter how hard she tried to please him it was . . . another woman says Never enough. She apologizes, but Kirsten says it is true. She says she realizes she would never be a good enough mom or daughter to him. The doctor thinks Kirsten is finished here, they have done all they can for her. He says shell need to get a sponsor and attend meetings of course. However he says she can do that from home.

Jimmy asks what they say, Ryan did it? Julie says they all think shes protecting him anyways. Jimmy says so she wants Ryan to go away for this? Julie says before he came to town their lives were stable. Jimmy says so its Ryans fault he went bankrupt and almost went to jail, and it is his fault she married Caleb only to watch him drown? Julie says she is just venting. She wishes none of this happened, but it did. She says they have a chance to be a family and she doesnt want to lose that.
