She asks if they can go to the doctor and Nathan agrees to go tomorrow. Carrie is putting flowers in a vase next to Dan. She tells him that the hardest part about being a fugitive is constantly being followed around. She tells him that if both him and Jamie goes missing, he will be the prime suspect. She tells him that no one checks up on him as no one likes him. She tells him that when she kills him, she can just burn his beeper and I.D. and no one will ever notice. She begins to mock him having a buzzer and tells him that he did get one alert when she knocked him over. Dan then begins coughing as Carrie asks what he wants to say.

She refuses and turns around telling herself the plan doesn’t suck. On the river court, Nathan learns Lucas is getting married from Haley. He asks if Haley was freaked out by the doctor, and Haley confirms she was when he said ‘paralysis.’ She tells him how happy he looked when playing basketball and she knows that he cannot slow down the pace as it is not who he is, but that is why she loves him. They reminisce about when she first so him play and he tells her that he played that game for her and tells her that he would give it up for her too as he loves being a father and husband more than a basketball player. Lucas is getting the rest of Peyton’s stuff as she tries to ring Brooke. She tells Lucas that she cannot get in touch with her and as she stares around miserably, Lucas tells her it is a beginning not an end. As she walks out, Brooke lies in silence in her room, hugging her pillow in sorrow. At Carrie’s house, she is still in two minds about whether to call the number. Eventually, after Dan’s mocking, she calls it and finds that Dan is on the heart transplant list. Dan begins laughing as Carrie throws the phone off the door telling him to shut up. Brooke goes to look in Peyton’s old room. As she does, she jumps as the doorbell goes. Deb begins shouting through for her attention and Brooke goes to answer the door. As she does, Deb tells her that she is there for a girls night in, but Brooke refuses. Deb tells her that for many years she lived a lonely life and was scared to death and she is not going to let that happen to Brooke. Meanwhile, Carrie yells at Dan to explain what that phone call meant. Dan tells her that he has six months to live and so he is only a suspect for six months, meaning her plan sucks. As he laughs, Carrie gets a knife and threatens to kill him, but Dan tells her that without a new heart, he is already dead.

As he goes to leave, Quentin tells him that he is glad to be a part of it and as Nathan asks what he says the comeback. Nathan tells him to not call it a comeback, but thanks him for helping him. Haley and Jamie are finishing off Quentin’s cape as Jamie smiles happily. Lucas goes to see Skills and tells him about Peyton and him. He congratulates Lucas and Lucas offers to go for a drink with him if he is not busy. Skills puts down his clipboard and tells him that he was going to talk to Quentin, but it can wait. Meanwhile, Quentin stops at a gas station. He goes in to buy some gas and the worker just stands and stares at him. As Q looks around, he sees a pair of feet lying by the door with blood around them. As he looks and glances away in disbelief, the supposed worker catches his eye. Q turns around in shock as the robber tells him to have a nice night. He gets a gun from his pocket and pulls the trigger. At a shooting range, Deb teaches Brooke how to fire a gun. In the middle of the night, a phone rings. Lucas wakes up and picks it up.
