The ladies meet Shannon at the bistro and get to know her and end up sharing stories about mistakes that they made before becoming sober. They tell her she has a chance to get better and Bonnie gives Shannon her number. Shannon thinks she can stay with her mom if she is drunk….she is happy when she drinks, but mean when on meth.
Later that day, Bonnie comes home to Adam (William Fichtner), who says they need to talk. Bonnie freaks out, coming up with crazy scenarios. However, he tells her that they found a spot on his lungs and want him to go for more tests. Bonnie freaks out even more, wondering why he didn’t tell her what was happening. She agrees that she will go to the oncologist with him as she begins to cry, wondering if it is weird that she wants a cigarette.
Bonne calls Marjorie to fill her in on everything, even though Marjorie thinks 10pm is the middle of the night. As she talks, she gets calls from Shannon, whose mom Jolene (Rondi Reed) tries stealing her money and Jill, who says she is marrying Andy.(Will Sasso)
