At The Cory Mansion,
Matt shows up with some flowers for Rachel and to offer his fake sympathies. Rachel takes the flower and heads into the study to place them in a vase. Paulina was also there and told Matt they need to try to help Rachel get through this. Matt agrees and as they walk into the study where Rachel is, Matt told Rachel if there was anything he can do for her, such as arrangements or anything for her to please asks. Rachel told Matt and Paulina that there will be no funeral. They asks her why not and Rachel told them the last thing she needs was a Chapel filled with people who distrusted her husband. Matt says but...Rachel cuts him off saying there's no discussion, she doesn't want anything but to honor Carl in her own way. Meanwhile, the sniper was outside looking in on them. Paulina tries to convince Rachel to change her mind by telling Rachel that she knows how much she loved Carl, but if she thinks she is the only one who believed in him she was wrong. Matthew chimes in that Paulina was right. Rachel told him that Paulina was the only one in the family who supported him and anything she does will include that Paulina cared. Paulina told her that she was gonna disappoint a lot of people. Rachel asks her like who. Paulina told her like Joe, adding that he and Carl may have had there differences but they worked them out and Sofia who looked up to Carl. She then says what about Vicky and the boys, adding that Carl was Ryan's father and their Grandfather they loved and cherished him. Matt chimes in again that Carl had a lot of friends. Rachel asks her where were they when he needed them, adding that he was blamed for everything short of World War II. Paulina told her maybe they had their own lives and their own problems, but that doesn't mean that didn't care about Carl. Rachel bitterly told her when you care you do something, you just don't stand there and point a finger. She then told Paulina that Carl was sick, he needed help and support and you where the only one who gave that too him. Paulina told her maybe they didn't know he was sick. Rachel snaps back that of course they didn't know, but that didn't stop them from doubting every single move he made and now he's gone. So if they want closure they're going to have to find it in their own way. She then gets up and leaves the room, leaving Paulina and Matt with a worried look on their faces. Outside the sniper who's name I believe was Scott was in his car talking to Carl on the phone. He told Carl that it' all going down just like he wanted, everyone thinks he's dead and all he has to do was say the word and he'll put phase 3 into action.
At The Prison,
Cass and Amanda show up to see Cameron to see if he can convince them that he is not the killer. Cass introduces himself and told Cameron that his partner Tyrone was already working on his case. Cass then leaves Amanda alone with Cameron so that they can talk. Cameron asks Amanda if she's going to work with him to find out who killed Carl. Amanda told him no. Cameron told her he can't be the only one behind everything. Amanda sarcastically says, let me guess, the conspiracy theory, and then told him don't all criminals use that when they don't want to take the blame. He then told her to answers the questions of why did someone take his gun and shoot Carl, she told him maybe he did when he stood her up. He says okay, who posed as the cop that night that pulled me over, who put the gun back under my bed when I was with you. Amanda told Cameron that she doesn't know, but she hates him because all this started when he showed up. She hates him for taking the job for Carl, she hates him for being nice to her up on the hill and most of all she hates him for making her care about him. Cameron told Amanda that she has to start using her head and figure out how he could have possibly been in all those places at once. Amanda says that maybe he wasn't working alone, so Cameron asks her to help him find out who the other person was and then asks her to look him in the eye and tell him he's a killer, but she can't do it. Amanda asks how she can help and he told her to find out everything she can about his gun, the shooting, and the fire. Amanda agrees to help him and then leaves.
At Grant's and Cindy's Penthouse,
Cindy was standing around pondering whether or not to call Grant. She then thinks to herself what's the worse that can happen and decides to call him. Grant answers the phone from in his hospital room and Cindy says nothing. Grant finally told her that if this was her on the phone, she's not fooling him. Cindy told Grant that she thought maybe they could talk, now that he's had some time to cool down and think things through. Grant told her that he has actually been thinking a lot about her lately. Feeling uplifted, Cindy says you have really. Grant says really; I was thinking that you might want to pack up the over-priced tasteless things you bought with my money and get the hell out of my suite, because if you're still there when I gets home, I will have you thrown out on the street, you got it, CLICK! Cindy was physically shaken at Grant's words and went to the closet and pulls down a box with a safe inside of it containing enough information on Grant to get him put away for life. As she was looking through the box of items, Gary shows up to see if she was okay. Outside Cindy and Grant's place, Gary says to himself oh Cindy, Cindy, I love to see what's inside that box. Even if I don't push to hard, you'll hand it right over to me and then he leaves. Inside, Cindy sits there holding the box and then starts crying to herself.
At Vicky's Place,
Vicky was up in her room lying in her bed when she hears someone coming who she assumes in Jake. She then says, Jake I've been waiting for you and then pats the bed for Jake to join her, but when he doesn't she turns around to see Lila standing there. Vicky springs out of her bed and asks Lila how in the hell did she get inside and told her to get out before she calls the police. Lila tells Vicky that she has information that will prevent Grant from ever getting custody of Kirkland. Vicky hangs up the phone and told Lila that she doesn't understand why she would want to help her. Lila says she'd like to be paid for her information. Unfortunately, Vicky told Lila NO! There will be no deal. She was not getting a penny from her so she can just take her little proposition and get the hell out of her house. Lila accuses Vicky of loving the idea of destroying every chance Lila has at happiness. Vicky cuts her off and told her that if she wants to blame her for her sorry life then fine, but she was still not getting a cent. Lila spouts at her to be smug if she wants, because she was going to get exactly what she deserves and she loves that the whole town use to worship her and now they are turning their back on her, even her own mother.

Jake was there visiting Marley and telling her about him and Vicky. Marley says Vicky how could you. Jake says Marley it's me, Vicky isn't here it's Jake.

Jake takes Donna into the hall and says they have a lot to talk about concerning Vicky. Donna denies that Vicky slept with Shane, but Jake says he never told her what he was angry about. Jake accuses Donna of covering for Vicky and he asks her if Vicky slept with Shane. Jake asks if the night in the lodge was the only time and Donna says no, but then she says he is confusing her. Jake storms off and Donna was pleased with herself. Donna goes in to see Marley and told her that their plan worked. Marley feels bad for Jake, but Donna says they did a good thing. Marley told her mother that she doesn't know if she can go through with hurting Jake like this, but Donna tells her that in the long wrong it's for the best because if he stays with Vicky, he'll end up being hurt.
In Grant's Room, Cindy shows up to see Grant who tries to call security on her the minute she walks in the room. Cindy told the nurse that everything is fine and then yanks the phone out of the wall and barricades the doors. Grant tells her this was a bit extreme, but Cindy told him that he was going to listen to her whether he likes it or not. She told him about all the information she has on him that could put him away for life, like him trying to kill Vicky and Shane and framing Jake for the murder and his involvement in the Carlino fire. She then told him about Gary coming over today and how he was standing only 2 feet away from her and she wanted to show him what was in the box. Grant nervously asks her if she did. Cindy told him that she wanted to, but she didn't because she still loves him. Cindy also says that she knows he still loves her. Grant told Cindy that he wouldn't be able to send her to the crazy house because of all they went through, he was just upset with her. Grant asks her to get him some water and when she leaves Grant calls Gary and asks him to keep his eye on Cindy. Cindy returns and Grant told her that their marriage was over. Cindy went nuts!

Lila tries to explain, but Jake told Lila that he doesn't care why she was here, she just better get out before he does some real damage to her. Lila told him that she didn't come by to cause trouble, she just came by to offer Vicky away to get Grant out of her life for good. Vicky tells Jake that Lila came by to get money from her for information she supposedly has on Grant. Lila snaps back at Vicky that she does have information, but Jake cuts her off and yells that he doesn't care what she has and then stops short to asks how in the hell did she get in the house anyway. Vicky told Jake that Lila broke into their place while she was upstairs taking a nap. Jake told Lila to listen to him, because he's only going to warn her one time and he has already talked to Cass about getting a restraining order against her. Lila confidently told Jake that Cass wouldn't do that, but Jake told her that Cass will do what he pays him to do. He says I will call him and they will put you in jail that day. Vicky also told her that if she shows her face around there again, she will have to deal with her. Lila asks was that a threat. Jake says very perceptive Lila. She then tells them fine, she will leave, but when Grant comes after her child, don't' come crying to me because I am going to laugh in your face and with that, Lila leaves. Outside Lila was distraught that her plan didn't work and desperate for money. She then thinks about Matt and heads over to the Cory's. Inside, Jake asks Vicky if she was okay and Vicky told him she was great now that her knight in shining armor has arrived to rescue her. She then pulls Jake into a kiss, who pulls away from her. She then asks him what was wrong and Jake asks Vicky not to tell the boys about them just yet. Vicky told him okay, but what should she tell them, because she doesn't want to lie. When he hears her say lie, Jake thinks back to what Marley told him at the hospital and told Vicky that he has to go back to the hospital. Vicky says but he just got home. Jake tells her he knows, but he'll be back and then leaves to go back to the hospital. Jake returns to the hospital and told Marley that he won't be going any where. Listening in, Donna says to herself, no he won't.

Rachel told him that she is bitter and this kind of senseless violent death makes one bitter. Paulina says of course it does, but we'll help you get through it and we'll get through it together. Rachel says it won't bring him back will it, and it won't change the way it ended and then proceeds to leave the room again. Matt stops her and tells her that he feels terrible about what happened and he regrets having any part in it. The doorbells rings and Rachel told him before answering it, too little too late Matthew. Rachel then opens the door to find Lila standing there with some flowers for her. Lila told Rachel how sorry she was and she came by to pay her respects. Rachel invites her in and Lila comes in and heads straight for her target - MATT. They greet her and Lila plans to play on Matt's feelings for her and acts like a dizzy spell has just come over her.

Marley told her she doesn't care and Donna asks her what was she suppose to tell Jake, since he has been by her side during this whole ordeal and he was more involved with her than ever. Marley told her it's because he was pulling away from Vicky and she was the one who caused it. Donna told her it was because he saved her life and she can't refuse the surgery, because she'll let him down if she does. Marley told Donna once she was better Jake will eventually go back to Vicky or find someone else. Donna told her not to be discouraged and then told her she was going to go find Jake.

She heads over to where they are talking and told Jake that Marley doesn't want to have the surgery and asks him to speak to her. Jake slips in his hospital garb and heads into Marley's room. Vicky told Donna that she can't understand why Marley doesn't want to have the surgery. Donna told her how can she stand there with her perfect face and say what her sister needs to do. Vicky looks at her and asks her why was she so mad at her, because she didn't cause Marley's accident. Donna told her she knows. Vicky then demands to know why Donna has been treating her so badly. Donna told Vicky she can't get into this with her right now she has to leave.

Jake told her that her sister was in there struggling to see if she can get a new face, so why doesn't she just leave him alone. He then walks off as Lila comes up on Vicky making small talk. Vicky told Lila that she was in no mood for her and today was not a good time.

Vicky says no, we are just under a lot of stress that's all. Lila says, stress my foot. Jake hasn't forgiven you for your little fling with Shane has he. Vicky says, yes as a matter of fact he has forgiven me, but Lila says, has he Vicky. Has he really? Vicky asks Lila why was she smirking like that and why did she come and see her last night. Lila told her that she already told her, she had information on Grant. Vicky asks her what information and Lila says too late, it's not for sale anymore. Vicky told Lila that she must be pretty broke and desperate if she was sneaking into her house, trying to peddle what she knows. Lila told her to face it, she blew it. Vicky told Lila it's strange, first she can't get a straight answer from anybody including Jake and now Lila was walking around like the cat that ate the canary. Sensing foul play was involved, Vicky asks Lila what was she up to. Lila asks her if she thinks she would know what was going on in Jake's mind, or even Donna's. Vicky told her she would if she put it there. Lila told Vicky she can tell her this, that Vicky's in big trouble, but then again she's probably use to that.

Lila introduces her son and went on to tell Vicky how smart and brilliant he is. The boy asks to go outside and Lila told him of course he can. Alone, Lila told Vicky that she was the one who caused Vicky to lose everything. Vicky asks her why and Lila told her because she was rich and had every man panting after her, especially Shane the only man Lila has ever loved and besides, she just plain ticked her off. The dream then ends with Vicky on her knees begging Lila for a job to still be able to come clean her old house and Lila telling Vicky if she just plays her cards right, maybe she'll even let Vicky clean the Cory mansion one day. Vicky was saying thank you, thank you. Out of her dream the man brought Lila back her order and says he hopes it was right. Lila told him if it isn't, she'll do something about it because she always gets what she wants.

He calls Cass, but gets no answer. He says to himself, that Cass must be working overtime to find the missing money. Not that he'll ever find it, hell I don't even know where it is. Poor guy, first all those Embers In The Snow fiascos and now this. He hasn't gone to the police and then there was Cameron. Cameron bored me from the minute he started poking around in your business, but Cameron's not going to be a problem around Bay City any more.

Back At The Cory's
Donna shows up to help Felicia help Rachel deal with her grief. Rachel comes in the room and upon seeing Donna, asks Felicia if she call her. Felicia told her yes, because she wanted her to see that she was not alone. They all sit down on the couch with Rachel in the middle of them. Rachel told them that when Carl was torn from her she felt the threads of her life break. Felicia told Rachel that she felt the same way when Luke died and Donna chimes in that so did she when Michael died and she was still grieving his death in away that nobody can understand. Felicia then told Rachel that she was not any different than her and Donna. Rachel cries out that she feels different. Donna told her she knows and they feel different too, but it's the nights that are the worse the dreams. Felicia adds and then there are the good dreams, they are actually worse than the bad dreams because when you wake up happy and you look over and they are not there beside you anymore. As they go on, Rachel in the middle was crying out loud. Donna says and you are afraid to go back to sleep, I know, because you are so depressed you don't know what to do, I know. Rachel says that she was all that was left. Felicia told her Carl that didn't leave her, he loved her and so did Mac. Rachel cries that they both left her too. Donna then told her that she was different and they are all different, while Felicia finishes and says they are different, but they are all alike because they feel like they have been left behind. Rachel cries and they comfort her as they all talk of the loss of their respective dead ones. Amanda returns home and calls Cass and told him that Cameron was released.
