In San Cristobel:
Richard professed his love to Cassie. She in turn told him of her feelings. They figured out that both of them were scared of losing the other so they kept up the fašade of wanting an "arrangement" only. After the revelation the two couldn't keep their hands off each other, they kissed constantly between telling each other how they felt. Richard told Cassie that he never knew he could love someone that much. He told her that he missed her ever minute they were apart and thanked God ever minute they were together. They kissed some more and Richard picked Cassie up and carried her over to her bed. The two started making love when Tammy walked in. She wanted to show them the gown that was being made for her to wear in the wedding. Richard thought it was stunning and that she should try it on but Tammy protested. She told him that he wasn't allowed to see her or her mom in their gowns before the wedding, it is considered bad luck. Tammy went back to her room and Richard and Cassie talked a little more. Cassie told him not to think she was stupid but she always had a dream about how her wedding would be, a wedding that she never got to have. Richard wanted to know all about what Cassie dreamed of as a girl and asked her about it. She had a dream of a big wedding, being madly in love with her fiancÚ and waiting until her wedding night to make love for the first time. Richard told her that if that was what she wanted he would give it to her because she was the only thing he wanted. She asked if he would mind waiting and he told her he would take a lot of cold showers. He kissed her again and then left to do some errands. Outside her room, Richard thought about waiting until their wedding night, he thought that would only be some 50,000 minutes to May. J Meanwhile, Cassie was on cloud nine. She finally had everything she ever wanted.

At Drew's Apartment:
Max and Jesse fought over Jesse's fake heart attack. He can't believe he did that to his sister in favor of his ex girlfriend. They argued a little until Drew came back. Jesse told Max that he would tell Drew the truth but Max told him not to. He told him how hurt Drew would be and how depressed she had gotten. He told Jesse just to leave things alone and live with his lies. Max left.
Drew crawled in bed with Jesse and gave him a present. She was being so attentive and Jesse was feeling guilty. He told her that he loved her and wanted to marry her still.

On the Santos Yacht:
Michelle and Danny were interrupted by the Coast Guard saying they were coming aboard. Danny told her not to worry that when they entered SC waters, the Coast Guard sometimes came on to inspect the safety equipment. She asked if the captain would say anything and Danny assured her that he was paid the big bucks to keep his mouth shut. He did however think that they probably knew they were fugitives by now and may be on the look out. While they may know him, they wouldn't know her, especially since the boat was registered under the name of some charity and not Santos. She told him to hide in a closet. He got in; she wrapped her hair in a towel and opened the door to the Guards. They told her they were there to inspect the equipment and she told them in a British accent to go right ahead. They did and asked her why she was on the boat alone. She told them that she had fought with her husband and needed to get away. They started to go towards the closet and she acted like she would faint. They came to help her and told her about a fugitive couple and she acted even more scared about that. They told her not to worry that they probably weren't anywhere around there and then left her to herself. When she heard there boat start up and pull out, she let Danny out. He was very impressed with his wife. The two had made it and sat back down for the duration of their trip.

At Company:
Harley asked Buzz for his help. She wanted to know what he thought of the situation with Edmund and Phillip. He wasn't sure but started to give her some advice when Edmund and Carmen came in. Harley got an idea, told Buzz to stall them and she left. Buzz went over and made something up about Edmund and Carmen being the 1,000th customer and told them to order anything on the house. They only wanted coffee. A little more persuading by Buzz and they got up and left entirely saying they would go somewhere they wouldn't be interrupted. Buzz ran for the phone when Max came in. Max wanted to talk. Buzz borrowed his phone, called Harley, who didn't answer. Max set the phone on auto-redial and started asking Buzz for advice. He wanted to know if Buzz had ever kept things from his family. Buzz told him that he had. Max asked if it would hurt someone to know something, should he tell. Buzz told him her shouldn't tell just to hurt someone, unless that person needed to know. Max was scared that he would get tossed out back into the streets but Buzz told him that he belonged in his, Selena's and Drew's family to stay.

At Edmunds Apartment:
Harley turns off her cell phone and picks the lock on the door. Once inside she begins looking through drawers and closets. She found all the blank videotapes but didn't think anything about it. After awhile, she heard Edmund coming in and she ducked into a closet. She heard him talking to Carmen. He told her about his board seat and Carmen said she wasn't surprised with all he has over Phillip Spaulding. Harley knew he was blackmailing him but still doesn't know why. She listened longer but that was all that was said. Edmund asked Carmen to stay the night and the two started kissing passionately on the sofa. Harley peeked out and saw this and snuck out the door.

At the Country Club: Josh, Marah, and Shayne come in. They meet up with Olivia for dinner. The kids and Olivia were both shocked to see each other but Josh insisted that they all sit down together to eat. Josh wants to talk to everyone. He tells them that he has heard that he has been being an idiot and would like to make it up to them. He pulls out a few notes and starts to go over them. Part one said that he loves his children and apologized to them for acting crazy. Part two was about Olivia. He said that Olivia has become a part of his life and not one of them has treated her fairly. She deserves a chance and they need to give it to her. He tells his kids that Olivia is a great lady and has been there for all of them. Part three is where Josh talks to them all as adults and admits to them that he wants to move on with his life with Olivia and they need to stop holding him back in the past. He tells them if they don't give Olivia a chance, they would be the ones missing out.
Olivia takes a turn. She hopes they all can be friends. Shayne isn't that eager but Marah steps in and agrees to do it for her dad. Olivia and Josh dance while Shayne and Marah talk. Marah is upset that Josh didn't even bring her mom up. She knows he loves Reva and will prove it. She walks off. She makes a phone call and orders flowers for Reva in her dad's name. She says to herself that she will not stand still while Josh moves on without her mom.
Olivia is happy and tells him that this is much better than that silly drunken proposal he did. Josh thinks the kids will truly let her in now. Marah and Shayne think differently.

At Hawk's: Reva comes in with groceries. Hawk tells Reva that she is doing too much for him and that she needs to get out. He tells her that she needs to go home and not worry about him. Reva said that she cant leave, her dad needs her. Hawk tells her that he doesn't need her and hasn't for over a week. He told her that she is hiding from her problems and she needs to go back and face them. She tries to change the subject but Hawk wont stand for it. He wants the truth. She tells him that she and Josh are separated. Hawk tells her to stop being silly and go back to her man. She tells him about Olivia but Hawk said all she has to do is go back to Josh and bat her eyes and he will come back to her. She said she has changed and things don't work that way anymore. Hawk tells Reva not to hide out anymore and to go home. Reva tells him that she has never had the opportunity to be alone and would like to see what it is like without a man. She thinks she can make it and is very ashamed of what she had become. She tells him that she doesn't want to lose herself again over a man, but at the same time she still loves Josh and thinks about being with him again. Hawk tells her that she will make it no matter what she decides to do. She thanks her dad for letting her stay there while she healed and for kicking her out now that she is better.
Reva gets her things together and asks her dad if he is sure he doesn't need her. He tells her that he will be into town to see them all soon. The door bell rings, it is a flower delivery. From Josh, (via Marah). Reva doesn't know what to think. Hawk thinks Josh finally came to his senses.

At Company: Phillip is drinking. Rick comes in and tells him that he is there and he can stop beeping him now. Rick wonders what the meeting is all about. Wonders if it is Lizzie. Phillip just wants Rick's help. He says Rick has always been able to stop him from doing stupid things and he needs him to help him again. Phillip tells him that he seriously wants to kill Edmund. He told Rick about Edmund telling Beth that he knew everything and that now Beth believes Edmund is great and thinks Phillip is the bad guy. He tells Rick that he has already gotten a seat on the board and he just keeps pushing for more. He doesn't know what he will do and now Harley is suspicious.
Harley comes in. She asks him if he thinks she is stupid. She tells him that she knows Edmund is blackmailing him and wants to know with what. Phillip denies everything. She asks him what he has gotten himself into. She wants to help him. She is upset that he won't talk to her. She tells Phillip that she will have to find out for herself. Rick overhears and interrupts. He tells Harley that Edmund doesn't have anything on Phillip, he has something on him, (Rick), and Phillip has been covering for him. Harley feels awful. She wonders what Rick did but Rick doesn't want to talk about it. He tells her that suffices it to say it is bad. Harley apologizes again and leaves. Phillip thanks Rick. He doesn't know how to thank him for getting Harley to drop it. Outside, Harley gets on the phone with one of her contacts. She says she needs him to do some digging to help out a friend.

At Edmund's: Harley sneaks out but she left her purse. She is going nuts and has to go back in. She knocks on the door and Edmund comes to the door. Harley asks him if she can come in to talk about Phillip. She goes in acts surprised to see Carmen, and walks around the room talking very fast about how she wished Edmund and Phillip would get along better. She invites him and Carmen to their house the next evening for dinner, throws her coat over her purse and leaves with it. Once outside, she sigh's a sigh of relief. Carmen doesn't know why Edmund would go to the Spaulding's for dinner. He talks of his ambition. Carmen understands that but she also knows that you have to slow down and think about things every once and a while. Edmund talked about how SC should have been his and he will make it his. Carmen goes over and kisses on Edmund again. She is drunk with power and wonders what it would be like to rule an entire country. He tells her that it is wonderful, having an entire army at his command. She asks him if there is room at the top for her. He tells her that there is if she is interested. She wants to seal the deal. They tumble back onto the couch.

At the Hospital: Bill sneaks in to talk to Pilar dressed in hospital scrubs. He told her that Carmen is trying to move her to another hospital so that she will not be able to talk about Ben. He tells her that her cousin Ray told him all about it and that he needs to get her out of there. Pilar is tired but Bill tells her that she has to fight and get out of there. He tells her that she has been drugged out of her mind and he will get her help. She tells him that she deserves to be in there. Because of her, Ben is dead and Michelle and Danny are gone. Bill tells her it isn't her fault and she has to get out of there. Pilar is feeling sorry for herself and Bill tells her that she is very strong and brave and that he loves her.

Beth tells Phillip that she agreed with the dinner because she and H agree they all need to learn to get along. Harley goes to order takeout. Phillip follows her and asks her "what the hell is really going on!" Harley tells Phillip that she broke into Edmunds's apartment and left her purse and inviting him was just an excuse to get her things out of there. Phillip told her that was good thinking. Lizzie jumps into Beth's arms and greets Edmund. She wonders if they are having another party. They told her they are kind of having a little one.
Rick asks Phillip if he thought Harley would investigate him now that she thinks Edmund has something on him. "If she starts digging on me she'll start digging on you and neither of us wants that right?" Phillip agrees. Rick leaves to take a call. Phillip goes over to Harley and asks her not to dig in Rick past. Just to forget about it.
Eddie told Lizzie a story about Knights and she hugs him and leaves. Beth thanked him for doing that for Lizzie. He says he is there anytime she needs. "I know you have done a lot in your past but so have I. That's why I don't judge people from their past." Beth tells him no matter how the baby started; she loves him or her very much. She asks him if he meant what he said about keeping her secret. He told her that she had his word.
Rick came back and told Phillip that Harley had been going through his medical records. He is really upset. Phillip told him that he told Harley to back off and she will.

Cassie told them that she would help them get out of there as soon as she can. Cassie walks out of the room and through the foyer. Richard runs into her. Cassie says, "I though I was meeting you downstairs." Richard says, "I was spying on you.... Just kidding," he says and he kisses her. He told her that he had a surprise for her and Blake and Ross walked in. Cassie is panicking but hugs Blake and they chat awhile. Blake talks about her idea for her second book.

She tries to stop Blake but Richard says it's a great idea and he would be glad to give her a complete tour of the palace.
Danny looked at a map of the island while Michelle put on a princess dress. Danny acts like he is not interested. She tells him a story and tries to get him to forget their troubles if only for the moment. She kisses him and they fall onto the bed.

Ross understands but Richard insists that Blake and Ross take the tour anyway; he sets up one of his aids to walk them through. Richard accompanies them out and Cassie calls Natalie, the protocol lady and begs her to come over ASAP. Blake walks back in. She wanted to talk to her friend. She wants to know how everything has been going and the real scoop on the romance. Cassie tells Blake how the marriage of convenience turned into the real thing. Blake is so excited, wanting every detail. Cassie tells her the story and Blake says, "That is so beautiful I think I'm going to cry! This book will have a happy ending!" Blake wants to know the story about every room they were in and Cassie tells her that they were waiting until they were married. Blake thinks that is so romantic and should make for and even better story. Blake looks at Cassie and knows she is hiding something. "What's going on? What are you keeping from me?" Cassie smiles and says "Nothing. You know I can't keep a secret!" Cassie tries to change the subject and asks about Clarissa. Blake wants to know about her. Natalie shows up and Blake walks around the palace alone and decides to take a tour by herself. She walks over to the door where Michelle and Danny were hiding and is so tempted to go in but remembers that she wasn't supposed to mess with closed doors. Her curiosity got the best of her, however and she began shaking the doorknob. Inside, Danny and Michelle thought it was Cassie and opened the door. Blake looked Danny dead in the face.
Meanwhile, Ross is walking around the palace when one of Richards's aides came over and told him he had a visitor. Drew came in and demanded to know where Michelle and Danny were. Ross had no idea what she was talking about and Drew said that she knew he and Blake came there because of Michelle and Danny.
