Although Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) is no longer taking care of her, Jordan still has other things to deal with like medical bills.

Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) is grateful for the offer but still turns it down. Drew Cain (Billy Miller) while visiting Jordan will also say that he wants to help, pointing out that he is the reason why she’s in the hospital in the first place. But Jordan still refuses to take the help and tells Drew that it is not his fault.
