Sam storms into Addison's place and tells Bizzy, the Captain, and Susan to leave this house, leave this city, go home. Bizzy tells him he has no right to interfere and the Captain says it's okay. He says it's not, though; Addison's at his house right now and he doesn't know what's wrong, but they did it. Susan tries to talk to him, and he tells her this isn't about her. She says, "No. It's about them. It's their family." She says Sam cares about Addison, but so do they. Sam says she's her family, too, and he knows her better right now, so they need to leave. He says they're not going to push Addison to make this right. If they care about her, they need to leave.
In Cooper's bathroom, Charlotte asks him to come back to bed, but he's going to the hospital. She tells him not to be embarrassed, since things have been really stressful lately. He asks if this is the time for the sexology advice -- "Impotence happens to all men. Maybe it's just stress. Maybe we can cuddle instead." He turns to her and says she neglected to tell him she was married before, and that's the problem. She tries to talk again, and he tells her to shut up. He leaves, and she looks sad.
Violet watches through a window as Betsey tells Dell she hates him. He comes out into the hall and Violet says she's just upset. He says he's upset, too, and he's not the one who almost killed her. He cries as he says he's tired, exhausted and just trying to protect her. Violet says she knows he was protecting her from seeing something horrible, but maybe he's protecting her from the wrong things. She says Dell knows her life's a mess and she doesn't always make good choices, but she's always made them with Lucas in mind, to protect him. She says she knows that if Heather could, she would take away all the pain she's caused. Dell admits that he found a pipe last night, and confronted Heather, who said it wasn't hers but a friend's who came over. He knew she was lying, but he needed to believe it, so he walked out of the house and left Betsey. He says she must have been so scared when it happened, and he did that to her. He can't let it happen again. Violet says that Heather's going to die, so he might want to allow her a little bit of mercy, just for one moment.
