Over coffee with Michael, Lyla contemplates the next step in her treatment. Michael warns that the radiation therapy might be too much for her to bear alone. Her family deserves to know the truth, he argues. Craig comes in and Lyla lets on that she's not as healthy as they all might think. Judging by his reaction, Lyla sighs that she can't do it. Her family's been through enough in the past year to be worthy of their own reality show. The last thing they need is the news that her cancer has returned.

Later, Michael runs into Susan and she hints that she's not busy this weekend and was hoping he'd take her on a date. Recalling that Lyla's scheduled for treatment that same day, Michael grimaces and fumbles for an excuse to miss. Although disheartened, Susan smiles that he'll have to make it up to her.

Latching the horse stall back, Holden turns around to see Lucinda approaching the barn. She pleads with her son-in-law to talk to Lily.
