Dixie pleaded with Adam to forgive JR because their son needed them. AJ ran into David during a visit with JR in the hospital. Dixie feared that David would try to worm his way into AJ's life. Dixie's prayers were answered when JR opened his eyes and called out to her. AJ was suspended from school for hitting a fellow student who had made inappropriate remarks about Miranda. AJ planned a special evening for Miranda to cheer her up. David overheard Cara tell Griffin that David could never find out about what had really happened to the baby. David accused Cara of aborting his child.
May 13 to 17, 2013
AJ was hurt when JR didn't initially recognize him. Griffin warned Dixie that JR might seem different because of the brain injury and retrograde amnesia. JR struggled with the realization that he was responsible for Marissa's death. Bianca forbade Miranda from being around JR, but Miranda refused to disappear out of AJ's life. David reeled from Cara's confession that she had aborted his child. Cara was stunned when JR confessed that he had heard the conversations around him while he had been in a coma, so JR knew that Cara's baby was alive. David wanted to go into business with Pete, but Pete was reluctant to agree. Opal paid Evelyn a visit to talk about Pete and Celia's budding romance. Evelyn immediately contacted Celia's guardian, who insisted that Evelyn immediately take Celia abroad. Celia reached out to Pete for help. Jesse was forced to break the news about Cassandra to Angie. Angie was horrified when she realized that her daughter was in the hands of a Russian sex ring. Zach's search for Cassandra led him to the seedy strip club, unaware how close he was to Cassandra. Zach met an FBI agent named Lea, who worked undercover in the club where Cassandra was forced to strip and participate in a pornographic movie. Billy Clyde Tuggle turned up in a Center City diner.
May 20 to 24, 2013
Pete and Celia's adventure led them to New York City. Celia dreamed about an eyeless, doll-like girl with blood on her face. "He's always right behind you," the little girl said as a man appeared behind Celia. Evelyn paid Opal a visit to demand to know where Pete had taken Celia. Opal suggested that Celia had seduced Pete, but Evelyn insisted that Celia was a complete innocent. Bianca faced JR when he returned home from the hospital. JR explained that he didn't recall the night of the shooting, but he assured Bianca that he was deeply sorry for causing Marissa's death. JR didn't expect Bianca to forgive him, but he assured her that he was a changed man. AJ was amazed when Miranda performed a special song that she had written about their friendship. AJ kissed Miranda, but she panicked and fled. Later, Miranda told AJ that she didn't want to jeopardize their friendship with a romance. AJ learned that his teammates had been "juicing." AJ's friend handed AJ a bag of syringes and vials of steroids with instructions for AJ to double-dose to catch up with the rest of the team. Billy Clyde decided to wage a "good Christian war" against his competition, Uri. Jesse was shocked when he saw Billy Clyde among the protesters outside of a strip club. Uri learned that Cassandra's stepfather was the chief of police, so he decided that it was time to get rid of Cassandra.
May 27 to 31, 2013
Bianca was called out of town to fill in for a speaker at a conference for violence against women. Bianca decided to take Gabby with her, but she didn't want Miranda to miss any more school. Bianca suggested that Miranda stay with Opal, but Miranda insisted on going to the Chandler mansion. Bianca had reservations about Miranda being around JR, but Miranda dug in her heels because AJ was her best friend. JR became concerned when he found steroids in AJ's bag. AJ denied using the steroids, but he resented JR talking to him about addiction. JR confided to Cara about his problems with AJ. Brooke warned Cara to be careful around JR because JR was a master manipulator. David was furious when Joe refused David's offer to make the hospital world famous with a cutting-edge stem cell treatment for the heart. David decided to hold a press conference at Jane's Addiction to tell the world about the medical breakthrough and the merger with Cortlandt Electronics. Zach and Lea figured out the password to a special site connected to the strip club. Zach was shaken when they discovered a porn video featuring a sobbing Cassandra. Uri decided to sell Cassandra so that she would disappear forever. Zach was forced to tell Jesse about the video of Cassandra, which had yielded an important clue. Zach, Jesse, and Lea encountered Billy Clyde at the warehouse where Cassandra had been kept, so Lea arrested Billy Clyde. Celia questioned why an experienced guy like Pete would be interested in her, but Pete assured her that his feelings for her were as strong as hers were for him.

June 3 to 7, 2013
Celia was assailed by visions of the creepy man, but Pete was oblivious to her distress because he was on the phone, trying to deal with the ramifications of David's shocking announcement. Pete decided that if David wanted a partnership, then Cortlandt would keep him on a short leash. Pete instructed his colleague to draw up an iron-clad contact for David to sign. Pete bumped into Colby Chandler at Jane's Addiction. Colby appreciated the changes in Pete. Brooke offered Colby a job at Teen Tempo, but Colby wasn't interested. Brooke made it clear that she wouldn't just hand Colby money, so Colby urged JR to stop Brooke before Brooke took everything from them. Amy declined Angie's offer to call Amy's family because Amy feared that Uri would follow through on his threats. Jesse suspected that Billy Clyde had tipped off the Koslovs, but Billy Clyde assured Jesse that he and Jesse were on the same side of "God's law." Jesse found a message that Cassandra had scratched into the wood paneling that read, "I love you mom + dad. Cass." Uri called to offer Jesse an opportunity to save Cassandra. Jesse readily agreed to do whatever Uri wanted. Uri expected Jesse to arrange for a burned body to be identified as Uri's.
June 10 to 14, 2013
Jesse was furious when a forensics technician revealed that Zach's fingerprints had been found on the murder weapon used to kill the burned body that was identified as Uri Koslov. Uri refused to release Cassandra until Jesse arrested Zach. Dixie was terrified when Billy Clyde approached Dixie to ask for her forgiveness. Dixie was outraged when Jesse explained that the statute of limitations had expired on Billy Clyde's crimes, so Billy Clyde was free to roam the streets. JR was surprised when he saw AJ spending time with David. JR vowed that he would not let David use AJ to get to JR. JR considered taking steroids to speed up his recovery, but Cara advised him against it because of the adverse side effects. JR had a change of heart about the steroids when he learned about Brooke's plans for the company. Colby deliberately gave Celia the wrong impression when Celia called Pete. Pete was stunned when Celia returned the gifts that he had bought for her. Colby was on hand to comfort Pete after his breakup with Celia. Colby questioned why David had handed her a check for $30,000, so David claimed that it was a gift. Miranda was horrified when she received a text message with a doctored photo of Miranda and Heather in a compromising position. Heather took an interest in AJ, but she worried that AJ was involved with Miranda. Brooke persuaded Dimitri Marick to return to Pine Valley to help her run the media division of Chandler Enterprises.
