Baby, it’s here! What you're looking for, the way to know who you are! It's here!
On Valentines Day, Paula goes to Rebecca's house before her friend is to make an important public announcement. Together they go to an open mic night at a club where Rebecca gathered all her friends. A year prior, Rebecca was struggling to choose whether she wanted to be with Josh, Greg or Nathaniel. While trying to decide she fell asleep on the toilet and had a daydream involving Dream Ghost Akopian. Her imaginary guide presented threes scenarios: an Italian wedding with Greg, being pregnant with Nathaniel’s baby and having a family with Josh but in each potential future she isn't happy. Before waking up, she learns that the real problem lies with her as she doesn’t know who she is.
Rebecca confronts her future self.
Over at Home Base, Paula met with a former inmate named Hanifa from Rebecca's free legal clinic who just got released. Due to a legal loophole Hanifa's record could be cleared but Paula’s exclusivity contract with her new law firm won’t allow her to help. Across town, Rebecca's ex-boyfriends await her decision. Greg is with WhiJo at Serrano's wanting this to be over already. Josh is with Hector at Home Base hoping Rebecca picks him as he feels ready to be in a committed relationship. Nathaniel is at Il Cabino with both Bert and Darryl patiently waiting for a response. Meanwhile, Rebecca advises Paula's firm start a Pro Bono department so she can continue the work at the county jail.
The men await Rebecca's decision.
Rebecca then asks Paula for advice with her situation but got distracted by a musical fantasy (♫ Eleven O'Clock ♫). Back in the present, Rebecca goes on stage for her announcement and takes a moment to acknowledge her friends: Valencia just proposed to Beth and they are now engaged, Darryl and April are married with a new baby on the way, Heather and Hector got a hot tub, WhiJo's apartment and childhood home burned down and Paula convinced her firm to open a Pro Bono department. She goes on to talk about how Josh Chan is the sole reason she’s even here tonight since she moved here for him. She told him a year ago that although he will always have a place in her heart they weren’t meant to be.
Devastated by the news he moved out that day and AJ became her new roommate. Eventually Josh did fall in love with someone he met in the magic club he joined. Rebecca knew he would find someone since he was finally ready to commit. She then points out Nathaniel who, after she told him he wasn't the one either, decided to make changes in his own life but for the right reasons. He followed her example by quitting the law firm much to his father's dismay. Also like her, Nathaniel then moved far away to South America where he is currently an attorney for a Guatemalan zoo. Rebecca lastly singles out Greg who she also told a year ago she couldn’t choose.
This was due to Paula helping her understand something about herself. She told Paula how she would often zone out and imagine elaborate musical numbers to cope with life. Paula realized the talent her friend possessed and convinced Rebecca to express her creativity instead of hiding it as its who she really is (♫ West Covina (Final Reprise) ♫). When Rebecca told Greg her plans he was supportive but replied he wouldn't wait around for her which she accepted. In the present time at the club, Rebecca gives Greg respect for being further along in rehabbing his life than she is. She then detailed to her friends about all the work she has put in to follow her dreams.
She started writing songs and even took piano and singing lessons with the support and encouragement of her Gurl Group. Rebecca confesses the process of creating her own music was the first time she's truly felt happy. She came to West Covina to find love and succeeded through making friends and composing her own songs. Rebecca also states she may be ready to be in a relationship now and briefly considers several people in attendance. However, she adds that romantic love isn’t the end of her journey though and only a part of it. A keyboard is brought on stage and she announces to everyone she is about to play a song she wrote. Rebecca takes a moment to smile before launching into her performance.
