When she sings solo, she doesn't even know if she can finishs the song for the pain and lack of voice control. She finally realizes she must rest her body and her voice and is keeping her fingers crossed that she has not hurt her voice in the long run.  After a month separation, Tina asks Teddy to move back home as they are both ready to work on their marriage and family. "I'm going to show you I'm not going to lose you and you've made the right decision," he says. During a counseling session, the two begin airing their past mistakes which open up an understanding of some of their problems. They agree to work on committing to the relationship and the future of Teddy and Tina looks hopeful.  Warren realizes something is going on with Erica's voice and he is floored that his wife has kept her diagnosis from him.
