At the Bauers':
Michelle comes in and Danny asks where she had been. He is nervous. She tells him that she went to Infierno to see Tony. Danny demanded to know what Tony said. Rick walks in exhausted and Michelle sends him up to bed. They get rid of Rick and Danny goes on to ask about Tony. She told him that Tony didn't say much but that she did most of the talking. She tells Danny what she told Tony and that he was stressed out. She asks Danny what May and her boss said at the meeting. Danny tells her that there is a contract out on him and Carlos, Tony and Abuela are the ones behind it. Michelle can't believe it. Danny tells her about finding out from Ray as well. He doesn't understand why they would do this. He has always been taught blood is blood. Danny wants to call Abuela, he doesn't believe she can do go through with it if she has to look in his face.
Tony shows up at the Bauer's and peeks in the window. He sees the two men in the woods with guns and then looks over to Danny and Michelle right inside the windows. He says something about the family being sacred and runs inside. He tries to get Danny out of the view of the hit men and tells Danny that someone is there to kill him. Danny tells him he knows and he is looking at that person. He grabs Tony and pushes him against the wall. Tony tells him that there are men in the woods with guns there to take him out. He tells him that he is there to warn him. He says they wanted him in on it but he couldn't do it, he would never make Michelle a widow. Tony tells him that the men have high-powered rifles but he thinks they can get out. Danny lets Tony go and closes all the blinds and shuts off the lights. Tony tells him to leave with him now; he knows they can get away. Danny refuses to leave his wife and child. Tony tells him they won't be hurt, Carlos said so. Danny doesn't trust Carlos. Tony begs Danny to trust him then and get out. Just then Abuela comes in walking, without her wheelchair. Tony is confused and asks where her wheelchair is. Abuela tells him that the role of the old grandmother in the wheelchair served her well but she was in a hurry and had to do what she had to do. Danny tells her that he knows she wants him dead and wants her to say it to his face. She tells him the time for words is over and she pulls a gun on him.
Tony and Abuela are waiting for Carlos. Tony is nervous. Abuela tells Tony that she hopes he is just worried and not anxious. She doesn't want him to doubt what they are doing. He tells her not to worry about him. He is in. Tony tells her how Michelle came by and talked to him about how much they trust him and he felt bad because he isn't made of stone. Abuela tells him it is good he has a heart but business is more important and he can't be weak. Carlos comes in and tells them that Danny will be eliminated by the end of the evening. Tony asks when it will happen. Carlos says very quickly, as soon as possible. Tony asks about Michelle and the baby. Carlos tells him that it will be only Danny. Tony is worried and he tells them that the baby is his godchild and that means something to him. Abuela smiles at Tony and tells Carlos she has one grandchild she can count on. Tony tells them he is going to go look over the books. He gets outside the office and leaves. Carlos makes his call.

Richard and Cassie are ticked off that Ed once again got out of the trouble he was in. Cassie is furious that Phil told Beth what was going on. Cassie thinks the people may still see through it.

She refuses to go without him. He begs her, saying they have already lost their child and he won't lose her as well. She tells him she will not leave him.

She tells him that she isn't an innocent and her eyes are wide open. She starts screaming about how Richard did all of this and forced Edmund to do everything he has done.

He tells her that he wants her home with their family. She tells him she doesn't have a home and asks him where she belongs. She tells him that she isn't resented in San Cristobel and she isn't judged. She demands he let her have her life. He tells her that her life isn't grounded in reality. She tells him she resents him and everything he is saying. She tells him that Ed accepts her the way she is. He isn't trying to change her or save her from herself. He tells her that she can do whatever she wants but he will be taking care of the children. She asks what that means. He tells her that with the coups that Ed has pulled and all the armed guards and extra security, he will never let his kids come down there again. Beth tells him that he is lying and that threat is awful. Phil tells her that he isn't threatening her and that is why he sent the kids home, to get them out of the line of fire. She tells him that he has no right to keep the kids from her. He tells her she can see the kids as much as she wants, at home. She tells him that he can't force her to choose between being a woman and a mother. He tells her that she can't have everything. Ed comes in and tells Phil that Beth can have it all and she will. Ed tells Phil that if he insists on doing this the Spaulding's will pay and in the end he and Beth will win.

In San Cristobel:
Richard and Cassie are watching the people from the restaurant terrace. Cassie says they are stunned and now are in a police state. They believe Edmund's speech.

Dax congratulates Edmund on the ruling of the council. Phillip tells Beth that Edmund was acting like a bully. Edmund asks Phillip how he enjoyed the meeting. He says he enjoyed it, but not for the reason Edmund thinks. Edmund is a desperate man and sooner or later the people will be on to him and he will be out. Edmund says maybe Phillip wants to go home but Phillip says he wants to stick around and see what happens. Edmund asks Dax if he should be concerned about his loyalty since he was always Richard's man. Dax says he was loyal to the crown, not the man. Phillip compares Dax to a chameleon and says he needs some fresh air. He walks out. Edmund says he admires Dax but doesn't trust him. He could either have him executed, arrested or keep him close and exploit his talent. He picks the third option. Dax tells him he understands and offers to review the perimeter guard. Beth tells Edmund she was amazed and a little frightened by his meeting with the royal council. Beth tells Edmund that the more tightly he controls the country, the more he is playing into people's perception of him. He should take a lighter approach. She suggests a walk on the piazza to give the impression that things are fine. Beth says that he is charming when he wants to be and he can calm the people in ten minutes flat. She offers to go with him. Edmund thinks it sounds like something Richard would have done. He agrees and asks Beth to go with him, kissing her. Dax rushes in and tells Edmund to watch the news report. As they are watching, Richard breaks into the broadcast and tells the people that Edmund needs to be stopped. He is committing an illegal, immoral and criminal action. He goes on to speak about the government of SC and the rights of the people. When he was prince of SC he defended those liberties, but right now this country is at war. They are being attacked by a man who could care less about the laws. The people are living under martial law and have no rights. He tells them that Edmund will use the troops to enforce his way. Richard says even though Edmund is prince his rights aren't any more important than the personal rights of all the people. They cannot allow that to happen. Edmund thinks the country belongs to him but the people can take it back. Richard wants the people to make their voices heard. A man once wrote, "They have rights but dare defend them." It is time for them to defend themselves. Cassie is standing in the studio watching. Edmund says he hates television. He tells Dax to have Richard and Cassie arrested and his assets frozen. Dax agrees and tells Edmund he is loyal to him. Beth wonders if Richard was trying to be arrested. Edmund says he will play along because he is tired of Richard's game playing. Beth wonders why Edmund sent Dax to arrest Richard. She thinks he may still be loyal to him and Cassie. Edmund tells her that he is testing Dax and if Dax fails, he will never be seen again.

Now that he broke up with her and she isn't sure why, she is scared for him. She doesn't think it makes any sense. She knows Tony is as miserable as she is.

Reva says how to let go is a tough question and Marah won't like the answer. Acceptance. Reva says she has fought her whole life, because that is the way she is.

Then he goes to grab a paper and beats up the paper machine until he gets a paper out. Everyone is staring out him like he has some disease.

She smiles at him and asks him who did this to him. Tony tells Marah everything about the hit and what his grandmother had promised him but that he couldn't do it to Danny in the end. Marah swears not to tell anyone and tells Tony that the respect he was seeking he should have because what he did was to protect the ones he loves. He doesn't get it.

Marah tells him they will find out in the morning because he isn't leaving, he is going to get some rest. She patches him up and wipes him with a damp towel and cuddles up beside him. He tells her that wasn't exactly how he wanted their first night together to be but he does like it there. She tells him she likes him being there to. He isn't sure he can get to sleep so Marah starts singing him a lullaby. Tony is just starting to snooze when Marah hears something break downstairs.

Danny and Michelle both are waking up. He asks her why it is so quiet. She tells him that Meta has the baby and they are both asleep and Rick is still not back yet. He says he is hungry and she starts to go fix them something but he is scared it still may not be safe. She tells him the cops still have a car outside and she is sure it will be okay. Danny asks her if Tony had called. She tells him she hadn't heard from him or Rick. Danny seems worried about them. The phone rings and Michelle goes to answer. She is happy to hear from Rick. He tells her that everything worked like they had planned. He tells her that he left Tony at the bus depot but he is sure he got away. Michelle tells everything to Danny and she thinks they are in the clear. He tells her that it is far from over. He tells her that he has an idea but he has to think it out a little more. He tries to get out of bed but she stops him. He tells her that he needs a pen and paper to work things out. She asks him about the plan but he doesn't want to tell her just yet. He is worried about her safety and that of their baby. He is sure that Carlos and Maria won't just give up.
Sam tells Olivia that he had seen Marah and she is determined to get Tony out of her mind. He wants her to be happy no matter if she is with him or not. Olivia thinks it sounds like a big step for Marah. Olivia goes into telling Sam about the Harbor project for San Cristobel that she had been mulling over. He can't believe she is thinking of working with Edmund. She tells him that everything that has happened wasn't Edmund's fault. Sam tells her either way, Edmund is trouble and Josh will never go for the idea. She thinks if the project can make money and be good for Lewis construction and San Cristobel , he may do it. Besides, she thinks Josh needs to get his mind on something besides Reva anyway.
Josh comes out of the bedroom looking for his wife. She tells him she got up because she had an idea about a million dollar plus project for them but she wants to find more out before she tells him about it. She tells him she will gather her information and give him a formal presentation later. He tells her that is fine. She goes on to say that he may have to leave town for a few days to get some details down. Josh tells her that he just wants her to play things straight and not go behind his back. She promises.
In San Cristobel:
Phillip walks in the room Beth is in and she is hostile again. She tells him he should knock before barging in a room. He tells her the door was open but she isn't satisfied. Phillip starts in on Edmund and tells Beth that he just can't see what she sees in Edmund. Beth thinks Phillip is just upset because he doesn't have control of the situation. She tells him that she can make her own decisions and not only when she is doing what he wants her to. Phillip tells her that he will be leaving soon but Edmund walks in and tells him he thinks he will be staying awhile longer. Phillip realizes that Edmund wants to keep an eye on him and that is why he is keeping him there. Edmund didn't disagree. Edmund asks him if he knew where Cassie was. Phillip thought she would be halfway to Springfield by now. He thought Edmund had her put on a plane. Edmund tells him that she escaped. Phillip smiled and said, "Good for her!" Phillip goes back to his room. When he leaves Edmund calls a guard and tells him to put a 24-hour tail on Phillip and report to him where he goes and what he says. Beth hears the conversation and seems undaunted. Edmund turns back to her and asks her if she is worried. She tells him she is worried about him, she thinks he is exhausted. She suggests they go to bed, he thinks that is a great idea.
Phillip is talking to Dax in the hallway. He wants to know where Cassie can confront Beth so that Beth will not have time to sound any alarms. Dax tells him he will need to think a moment. Dax thinks the plan to feed Beth phony information is a great idea.
