Paulina told him that she doesn't know Marley that well, but he and Vicky.....Jake cuts her off and says that God never put a more honest person on this world than Marley. He then told Paulina that Marley didn't want to tell him about Vicky and he had to drag it out of her and Marley has always been the kind of person who wants to protect the people she loves. Paulina says tell me about it and then lets it slip that Marley saved Jake and Vicky's wedding day.

She then went on to explain that when he called and wanted to speak to Vicky they couldn't put her on the phone because she wasn't there.

Meanwhile Inside The Hospital, Cindy takes Donna into a room where they can talk privately and explains the whole sordid detail of how Grant and Lila cooked up the scheme to forge Shane's journal to make it look like Vicky and Shane had been sleeping together for months. A stunned Donna can't believe that it was true and told Cindy those were Shane's memories and that was in Shane's journal. Cindy told her they were Grants word's from when he and Vicky use to be together and then recites parts of the journal to Donna so that she will believe her. Still shocked, Donna says out loud, so it was not a lie and Victoria never slept with Shane, all that pain for nothing. Cindy says they can fix things. She can fix her marriage and Donna can fix things on her end as long as they work together. Donna flashes back to the day she ran Marley and Grant over and told Cindy some things can never be fixed. She then babbles on about how she just wanted every one to be happy, Jake and Marley. Cindy told her that they can go tell Vicky together and she'll go with her. Just then Grant walks into the room (How did he know what room they would be in?) and asks them what could they possibly have to be so chummy about. Donna slaps him and told him she knows about the journal and she knows he made it up, him and that southern trash. Grant told Cindy to give them a moment and she told him that she doesn't take orders from him. He then went over and asks if this was her doing. Cindy begins to say something, but Grant told her to get over there and shut up. Grant says to Donna, now where were we. Donna told him that he can cancel his plans to get closer to Victoria because the next time he sees her she was going to be spitting in his face. Grant says what makes you think it'll happen that way Donna. Donna says after she gets done telling Vicky about the vicious lie he made up about her and Grant says what he considers vicious was a mother who runs her daughter down and then leaves her for dead. Donna spouts back that he was not going to ruin Victoria's life and Grant told her if she says one word to Vicky or to anyone the only way she'll ever see her precious family was through a Plexiglas window on visiting day. Upset by his words, Donna leaves and Cindy says that's not the way to Marley's room and asks Grant what did he say to upset Donna. Grant says he told Donna the truth and Cindy told him that he was not going to get away with this. Grant told her that was the most ignorant thing she has ever said, because he always gets away with it and she was the one who gets caught. He then asks her to tell him how she found out about the journal. Cindy says never divulge the game plan, even after you have won it. Grant told her that he taught her to be loyal and Cindy laughs in his face and says you taught me to be loyal. She then went on to tell how she got her best friend hooked on speed for him and she lied and said Paulina was as high as a kite to save his ass. She told him he almost killed Paulina and her son, but she still stood by her man and what did that loyalty get her.....thrown out on the streets. Cindy then told him that hell was coming his way, maybe not yet, but he can't stop it and then leaves out the room. Grant grabs her just outside the room and says he can stop her.
Toni Burrell shows up and says that she came to talk to Grant about who hit him. Grant says that it's slowly coming back to him, but he just doesn't remember yet. While they are talking, Cindy sneaks off. Grant finds Cindy, who told Grant that she's going to tell Vicky the truth. Suddenly, Grant screams out somebody stop her, stop my wife she's the person who tried to run me and Marley down. Cindy was shocked, as was Donna, who just showed up. Grant told the Toni and one of the nurses that Cindy was mentally ill and he always hoped she'd get better, but obviously she couldn't get over her jealousy of Victoria and was trying to kill her, just like she tried to kill Lorna because of her obsession with Gabe McNamara. Somebody please help her, I think she's gone crazy. Cindy starts yelling not to call her crazy and then lunges at Grant and says he won't get away with this. A nurse drags Cindy off and Cindy yells at Donna to help her. Grant plays his role as the distraught husband until Toni and the nurse are out of sight, while Donna stands by watching in horror just how far Grant will go to get what he wants. Donna looks at Grant with disgust and says you sold out your own wife and if she doesn't tell Victoria about that journal she will be no better than he is. Victoria was her daughter and she has to tell her, she has to. Cindy was brought back down the hall in a straight jacket and was taken off to the psychiatric ward. Grant puts on the distraught husband act again and calls out to Cynthia that he'll be right there. He told Donna he has to go sign some commitment papers and asks her if she has ever had a straight jacket on, and adds that it's not pleasant. He then told her to go ahead and do what she feels she needs to do and spill her guts, but adds that there's always room for one more, in the psyche ward.
In Marley's Hospital Room, Vicky comes in to see Marley and they face each other for the first time since the surgery. Stunned to see her sisters face for the first time, Vicky just says Marley and Marley says you should try it from the inside, it's a real scream. Vicky gets ready to say something, but Marley cuts her off and told her what ever she was going to say don't, because she can't take it. Vicky says she can help, but Marley spouts back can you give me back my face. She then reaches out and touches Vicky's face and says she use to look like this and then told Vicky to get out. Vicky tries to comfort Marley, but Marley turns from her and told her how hard it was for her to look at Vicky and asks her to please get out. Vicky told her that she worked too hard to get in to see her and she's not leaving. Marley told her that she doesn't want her and Vicky told her she was sorry about that, but they are a part of each other. Marley told her not anymore. Vicky says what do you think I am doing here and then told her that she was standing out in the hallway and felt something, lost a sadness and then told Marley it was hers, she felt it and it went right through her. Marley says give me a break. Vicky told her that they came into this world together and that's real, that's true and she never has to question who she is. She then told Marley she's a part of her and as Marley and Vicky's eyes fill with tears, they embrace each other. Marley starts crying and told Vicky that she understands her and Vicky keeps telling Marley that they are a part of each other and nothing can change that. Marley was still upset about her face and Vicky tries to give her some encouraging words. They start talking about the first time they saw each other and begin laughing about how they each wanted to be more like the other one and Vicky told Marley that when she first found her she found herself and she hopes that she can be her strength if Marley lets her. Marley told Vicky she be lying if she didn't say it takes some getting use to. Vicky makes Marley laugh by commenting on her cheek bones and then adds that if she gets to jealous she can always have plastic surgery herself to look just like Marley. Marley told Vicky she was scared and Vicky told Marley she was going to be okay.
Vicky then told Marley that she could feel all of the pain Marley was going through and it was killing her not to be able to be inside with her, but adds that she was glad Jake was there for her. Marley says oh Jake and Vicky told Marley that her life was a mess and she wishes she could help her and went on to say that she can't get a straight answer from anyone as to why everyone believes she slept with Shane. Marley says maybe you can give me a straight answer and then asks Vicky if she slept with Shane. Vicky swears she didn't, but Marley doesn't believe her says they know she has cheated before. Vicky told her she didn't know there would be some statue of limitations on it. Marley says, excuse me and Vicky says she isn't the same screw-up she use to be before, she's a good mother, her kids are great and she must be doing something right. She then adds that she was a good wife to Jake and what they had was real and she meant every word of her wedding vows. Marley says please, you barely made it to your own wedding. Vicky told her that was because somebody untied the boat and then went into what she did to get back to shore. Marley says your very good at making up stories and told Vicky she only covered for her to protect Jake, because the thought of him standing on that alter waiting for her while she's sailing up the river was too much. She then asks, how long does it take her to say goodbye. Vicky was hurt that Marley doesn't believe her because may have lied to everyone else, but she told Marley the truth about the accident at Michael's funeral. Marley asks her if that because she wanted to clear her conscience. Vicky told her no, it was because she can't lie to her, ever since she looked into Marley's eyes and saw her reflection starring back at herself she could never lie to her. Vicky asks Marley to look into her that place where they are so connected and she will see the truth. Marley told her that the truth was that she's a liar. Vicky accuses Marley of coming back to Bay City and lying to Jake about the affair because she wants him back and told Marley how she saw how Jake willed Marley back from the dead so if this was the reason Marley has made up this lie about her, she forgives her. Marley looks at Vicky and says she doesn't lie and she didn't lie to Jake because she was not the kind of person who rips out people's hearts to get what she wants. Vicky starts crying and told Marley that she didn't sleep with Shane and the only way Jake would believe it was if Marley told him. Jake shows up and asks Vicky what the hell was she doing. Vicky told Jake she was trying to get..... Jake snatches Vicky out of Marley's room and told her that she's lower than he ever thought.
Outside Marley's Room, Vicky told Jake that she was well aware of what Marley has been through. Jake told her if she were aware of what Marley had been through then she would leave her alone instead of trying to blame Marley for her sorry life. Jake then asks her how in the hell can she call Marley a liar and Vicky cries to him that there wasn't any other explanation. Jake told her instead of complaining about her own miserable life she should have been looking at Marley's face and thinking about what Marley has been through or was she too busy calling Marley names. Vicky asks Jake why was everyone turning against her. Jake told Vicky he really doesn't care about whether or not she did or didn't sleep with Shane because after what she did to in there to Marley today, he will never forgive her. He then leaves Vicky standing there shaken and heads back into Marley's room. Donna comes around the corner and sees Vicky crying...........

As Matt stands outside pounding on the door, Lila tries to prevent Cass from telling Matt what he knows about Lila's game-playing. Matt yells Lila let me in right now and Cass says this ought to be interesting and Lila told him if he says one word to Matt, she will have him disbarred. Cass says it might just be worth it, shall I get the door. While Cass stands behind the door, Lila opens it and says Matt I didn't expect you to come over right away. Matt walks in and says Sofia just told me you're carrying my baby, you have exactly five minutes to tell me just what the hell was going on. Cass steps out from behind the door and told Matt that he'd be happy to fill him in since he knows every sordid detail. Lila told Cass no one really cares what he has to say, because this was really none of his business. Matt told Cass, Lila was right because he needs to speak to her alone. Cass says Matt I don't think you understand and Lila cuts in and says what Cass means was that we have a bit of business to discuss, so if you wouldn't mind just waiting outside for one minute Matthew, I'll hurry and finish this up. She hurries Matt out the door and then shuts it on him and turns to Cass, while Matt starts pounding again for her to let him in. Cass told her Matt was not a happy camper and Lila told him neither will he be if he breathes a single word of what she told him, because she has the proof that he acted as her attorney, so if he says one word he can kiss his precious career goodbye.

He told her he was trying to stop her from hurting people and ultimately herself. Lila told him he just wants to see her suffer, probably because she turned down his marriage proposal.

Lila begs Cass one more time and then opens the door and lets Matt in. Cass says Matt I need to tell you something and as Matt waits to hear what it is, Lila gives Cass the pleading look and he told Matt never mind and leaves. Lila grabs him at the door and thanks him and Cass told her he hopes Matt gives her what she deserves.
