It's the twins' 17th birthday and instead of celebrating their first birthday together, Emma is planning her escape as an angry Sutton returns to Phoenix to get her life back. Knowing her new life had to come to an end sometime, Emma tries to say goodbye to the family and friends she always dreamed of before Sutton arrives home and reveals the truth. But hell hath no fury like a scorned Sutton, and she doesn't just plan on revealing the truth, she plans on also ruining Emma in the process. With Ethan begging Emma to stay and fight for the life she wants, will Emma, for once, stand up for herself? Meanwhile, Thayer (recurring guest star CHRISTIAN ALEXANDER) and Char become more suspicious of Alec (recurring guest star ADRIAN PASDAR).
