Patrick is horrified when Britt shows up at the Fourth of July celebration he's having with Emma and Sabrina. "You're on bedrest," he says. Britt plays the alone card and claims she had to get out of that apartment. He invites her to eat with them. Emma isn't taking the sight of Britt well. Sabrina tells the little girl that she knows she's not happy about the baby, but there's nothing they can do about it. Besides, she's going to have a new baby brother or sister. She encourages Emma to show Britt her doll so she can practice being a mom. Patrick is no doubt relieved that Sabrina is there.
Well, no good deed goes unpunished. Emma shows Britt her doll and says that the doll does everything that a baby does, and gives her a bottle with water in it. Britt evidently never had a Betsy Wetsy doll and when she feels the liquid, she says, "Ooh, she's wet" and flings the doll away from her, right into the flaming barbecue.

Michael stands in front of the pool house and, under his breath, rehearses what he'll say to Kiki about having her blood tested as a potential donor. He knocks. Kiki says, "Come in," and Michael enters to find her tied to the bed, blouse open. He is shocked. He pulls out his phone to call the police; she stops him, explaining that she's playing sex games with Morgan.
This is beyond anything Michael could even imagine. It's degrading. He leans over to untie her, and their faces are nearly touching. Morgan enters and yells at his brother. Michael yells back that it was awful of him to leave Kiki this way. Morgan asks if he's angry because he didn't get to tie her up himself. Both men have gone over the edge, pushing at one another and screaming.
Though Morgan wants him gone, Michael insists that he has a reason for being there and that it's a matter of life and death. When he explains the situation, Kiki wants to help Danny. Once Michael leaves, Kiki is out of the mood.
Michael goes out and stares at the fireworks. Love is in the air, but not for him. Mac and Felicia while Patrick is with Sabrina and Emma, and they all look very happy. Elizabeth and AJ kiss. Spencer wants to see Elizabeth, but Nikolas doesn't think it's a good idea.
