Meanwhile, Bo and Gigi are clearly concerned for Rex’s life, which hangs by a thread. Later, as Bo searches for Shane, Gigi prays for Rex’s life. Shane is devastated after witnessing Brody’s state of mind while in jail. Bo finally catches up to Shane and escorts him to the hospital where Gigi is preparing to come clean. While he is on the operating table, Rex’s subconscious places him in a game show where he must atone for his past actions. Unfortunately, Rex gives the wrong answer to the most important question. Shane has a bad reaction upon learning that Rex, and not Brody, is really his father. At the same time, Rex’s family and friends gather at the hospital to give their support. Layla attempts to contact Adriana. Natalie is unable to strike a bargain with Tess, which would allow her to visit Rex at the hospital.
