Marley continues to be furious with Donna for running her down. Donna
wants to tell Vicky the truth, despite the fact the Vicky will hate her
and she will probably go to jail. She also wants Marley to tell Vicky
that she was in the car with Cindy, but Marley refuses. Donna notices
how bitter and angry Marley has become. Marley tries to get Donna to
keep what they've done a secret between the two of them, but Donna
insists Vicky has to be told tonight. Marley convinces Donna to let her
be the one to tell Vicky.
Marley went to Vicky's and admits that she has feelings for Jake, but
says that Donna kept pushing her to go after him and that she was still
doing it. She says there's something wrong with Donna. Marley told
Vicky that she thinks Donna was trying to play the two of them against
each other. She convinces Vicky that Donna was emotionally unstable and
to keep it just between the two of them. She also warns Vicky that if
Donna comes over and says strange things to not take it to heart.
Marley went home and told Donna that she couldn't tell Vicky because
Vicky was so happy now. She says if they just give her a little time,
she'll forgive them and they'll be a family again. Donna agrees to
sleep on it and they can talk about it again in the morning.
Cameron told Amanda that he killed his father in cold blood; it wasn't
an accident, self-defense, or the result of being drunk. But Amanda
insists there must have been a reason for him to kill his own father.
She won't let the matter drop, and in anger Cameron punches the glass
door, cutting his hand. Cameron and Amanda continue to argue. He
insists he's a bad guy and that she should go away from him and never
look back. She declares that it's too late, she loves him. Cameron
tells her she can't love a man she doesn't even know. He says he killed
his father for the money he kept under the bed. He took the money and
his dad's car and got as far away as he could and drank until the money
ran out. Then Gary found him and turned him in. When Amanda still
won't give up on him, he told her he only wanted her for her body, but
he's tired of the game and was leaving. He says now she can hate him
just like Gary does. However, as soon as he's out of the room, he says
to himself, "I'm sorry Amanda".
Gary told Josie that Cameron killed their father. He says he thought
he had put his past behind him, and that seeing Cameron brought it all
back. Josie reminds him that his father was abusive, maybe that's why
Cameron did it, but Gary says no, he did it for the money. Cameron told
him so himself. Josie told Gary that he has to get past his anger or
he will never heal and will never be free of his emotional pain.
Josie understands why Gary was so angry at Cameron, but not why Cameron
hates Gary so much. Gary says it's because Cameron blames him, that he
can't face up to his own guilt. She thinks there's more, but he told
her to let it go. Josie told Gary there's something she has to tell
Scott, posing as Carl, tries without success to get the Cory funds
reallocated. The bank won't allow it without Rachel or the twins being
present, a safeguard that Carl ordered. So Scott plans to take the
twins in order to get at the funds.
Amanda went through news clippings about Cameron in disbelief. Then she
hears a noise upstairs and walks in as Scott was preparing to take the
twins. Amanda sees the nanny unconscious on the floor. He forces her
to help him with the kidnapping. Amanda tries to convince him to take
her instead to pose as Rachel so they can leave the babies behind.
Scott agrees to Amanda's plan to take her instead of the twins.
On the plane with Scott, Amanda was clearly afraid, yet Scott keeps
demanding that she show him how much she wants to be with him. They
kiss, then he told her, "you're mine, all mine."

Matt showed up at Sofia's door, but she slammed it in his face. (She was busy having a vision of him taunting her!) Matt called for her to let him in. She opened it up and he said he loved her, and that he wasn't married to Lila. He told her how Cass had saved the day. Sofia insisted he'd really hurt her. Matt asked if she could trust him one last time, and took her to the Cory chapel. He showed her what had happened and gave all the details. He told her he loves her, and again asked her to marry him.
Gary prepared to leave, and Josie declared if he came back drunk, they were through. Gary was furious at her ultimatum, and said she shouldn't have tried to patch things up over dinner. Josie stated he might have found out why Cameron killed their father. She remarked Gary shut her out, just like Cameron. Gary reiterated Cameron killed his father. Josie remarked that he'd killed their father before Gary could, apparently. She said, "Maybe Cameron snapped." Gary turned to leave, but Cameron was standing at the door. Gary blustered, but Cameron said he wanted to talk to Josie. He told her Scott was up to something, and he was concerned for Amanda's safety. Gary made a sarcastic remark about Cameron caring for the women who bailed him out, and Cameron got in Gary's face. Josie came between them, and promised Cameron she'd look into everything. The phone rang, and Josie went to get it, as Gary confronted Cameron and told him to stay away from Amanda. The call Josie took was from Joe, who said Amanda was missing. She repeated it for Cameron and Gary. Joe told Josie he was putting an APB out on Cameron. When she hung up, Cameron was truly upset, and Gary noted this. Josie explained that Joe thought Cameron was responsible and there was an APB out on him. Gary couldn't believe Josie hadn't said Cameron was with them. Josie observed it wouldn't be the first time they'd harbored a fugitive. Gary repeated that Cameron had killed their father. Josie said she didn't think he had -- their father wasn't dead because they kept talking about him. Cameron insisted she couldn't know what they went through, and Josie admitted she doesn't, but Gary does, and they don't talk. She stormed out. Suddenly, the police showed up. Cameron begged Gary to help him.
Rachel came home and wondered where Amanda was. She saw the broken glass on the door and a bloody tatter from Amanda's dress. Rachel went up to see the twins and found the nanny out cold. The twins were fine. She called the police and woke up the nanny, who couldn't remember who hit her, but did remember that Amanda and Cameron had fought. Joe showed up and asked if all was well; Rachel told him what she knew. She said she saw Cameron wandering on the terrace. Meanwhile, Scott left Amanda on the private plane and headed back to the mansion. At the mansion, Rachel told Joe she was sure whatever happened to Amanda had to do with Scott. Suddenly, Scott was there. He asked what was wrong, and feigned shock. He said he and Amanda were supposed to meet. At the plane, Amanda tried to leave, but the pilot wouldn't let her. She tried to make a cellular call, but the pilot took her phone. Scott returned and the pilot informed him what had happened, then handed Amanda her phone. Scott informed her from here on out he'd take care of everything. He told her he'd dropped by Rachel's and Cameron would take the fall for Amanda's being missing. He told Amanda he had lots in store for them once they landed and got to their hotel. Amanda wanted to call Alli, but Scott maintained she'd just left that all behind. Meanwhile, at the Cory mansion, Joe asked where Matt was. Rachel told him the wedding hadn't gone off; he was probably with Sofia. Rachel left to check on the twins, and Josie showed up. Joe told her Scott had been there, pretended to know nothing. Now he wanted to talk to Cameron.
