Eden asks Tony if he is going to the cemetery. They start talking about what they take to their father's graves. Gus walks in and she blows him off. He grabs his sister and after Tony walks outside, asks her what she is doing; doesn't she know what day it is?

Outside Marah walks up to Tony and says she owes him.

Harley is in Zach's room reading him a story. Without her knowledge, Phillip is watching them. Finally, he asks what she is reading and she responds "It's about bullies and how we handle them."

On Mystic Island, Alexandra is about to wake a sleeping (outside) Edmund when the video phone rings. After contemplating it for a moment, she eventually does answer it. Alan asks why she blackmailed his doctor and had the doctor tell Olivia that they can't make love! Alex goes on and on about how a beautiful, young, exciting woman like Olivia might find it difficult to stay faithful to a man that can't satisfy her. Alan angrily disconnects the call. Olivia walks in says "Good morning." Alan discutedly responds "For Whom?"

Alexandra goes and wakes up Edmund. He is whining about sleeping outside and mentions bears. She discounts his concerns by saying that there are no bears on the island, only rattlesnakes. Even more concerned, Edmund tells her that he came to help her, not to take advantage of her. She agrees to leave the island with him, goes inside and grabs the tape. She takes a moment, recollecting the "show" on the tape. She ponders how could she leave her "holiday, without taking her little souvenir?"

Alan is pouting because Olivia won't make love to him, due to doctor's orders. He starts wallowing, he is now a "different man." She consoles him, saying everything is her fault and that she loves him. They kiss.

Harley is playing airplanes with Zach. Phillip comments on how good she is with their son. She asks if that is why they have the arrangement. She tells him that she did what he asked, there is no more Gus and Zach is still with him! He agrees to call his lawyers and set up joint custody. An overjoyed Harley pick up Zach, swings him around, and tells him he is coming home, "All because I did exactly what Daddy asked me to do." As she ends that sentence, she has a disgusted look on her face and walks out with Zach.

Gus is asking Eden if Tony mentioned the anniversary of his father's death. She says yes, they can talk to each other about it, because they both lost their fathers. Gus starts questioning her if she is going to go to the gravesite with Tony. He then reminds his sister that if she isn't careful, Tony is going to put her in a grave of her own.

Marah is thanking Tony for setting Reva up in jail, she knows that her mother is receiving preferential treatment because of him, the guard told her. They talk about how this is Reva's shining moment, she gets to be brave and strong for her family. Tony defends Reva's courtroom confession. Marah retorts that "she is doing just what you did when you thought I killed Catalina. Yeah, that turned out well." She immediately says she is sorry and tells him about blowing up at Reva. He tells her to apologize. Marah asks if he is alone and he tells her that he is with Eden.

Eden tries to leave but Gus grabs her and her things and takes them to a booth. He asks her "What is the matter with you? Tony Santos isn't just ANY Santos!" Eden strikes back "What do you think I am falling in love with him or something?" Gus starts painting worst case scenario pictures about her having a glass wine or talking in her sleep, spilling the secret they have kept for all these years. He says "Eden, you did not just cross Tony's father, you murdered him." He reminds her that Frederico Santos wasn't the one who put out the contract, he was the trigger man. Miguel Santos was the one. They talk about the night, how they lured Frederico Santos onto the roof to get a taped confession. Eden went to far and pushed him off the roof. Gus refreshes her memory that the only reason they are alive is because of the police cover up. He asks if she is going to tell Tony? She says that Tony will find out when she wants him to and he will know why his father deserved to die! She gets up and storms out.

Tony explains to Marah that he isn't dating Eden, they are just friends. He tells her that Eden is living with them because of her injury, and they came to grab a cup of coffee and they are going to stop off at the cemetery to visit his dad, Eden understands him, her father died a brutal death too. Marah then feels guilty for going on and on about her mom when he doesn't even have that. She holds his hand as Eden walks out and sees them.

Harley walks in looking for her bag, still carrying Zach. She tells Olivia and Alan congratulations. Alan asks where she thinks she is going with Zach? Phillip comes in and tells Alan that everything is okay. Harley sarcastically says "Yes, I did every single thing that Phillip asked. Gus is gone and I am all by myself! Is everybody happy?" Phillip, wanting her to stop, answers this rhetorical question with "yes, everybody is happy." Alan asks to speak with Harley in the hall, she agrees. Phillip goes to follow them out of the room, but Olivia stops him, saying that Harley can handle herself. Phillip remarks that it's Alan he is worried about not Harley. Out in the hall, Alan starts giving Harley the same old 'your lucky I am not Phillip, because I would never...' threats. Harley comes back with how he wants his grand children to be his little clones, and that would only happen over her dead body. He tells her that Phillip always gave her more than she deserved. She starts to comment, but he stops her with "I don't want to hear anything else that comes out of your mouth, my heart won't take it." and walks away. Harley screams after him "What heart?" She thinks about the letter she found and calls Gus and tells him that she wants to see him.

Eden comes out and makes forced casual conversation with Marah. Marah excuses herself to get something to eat. Eden asks if Tony is ready to go home. They discuss going to the cemetery. Gus comes out and tells her they aren't finished talking yet. She responds later and walk away with Tony.

Harley runs up and starts kissing Gus. He asks if she is okay, if Phillip reneged on the deal. She says no, he actually offered her joint custody and he is going to drop the criminal charges. Gus then asks if Phillip is okay with them being together, and Harley replies "No, that is why I am turning down his offer."

Phillip asks Alan what he said to Harley. Alan jokes, saying before or after his heart palpitations. Both Phillip and Olivia jump at this. He tells them he is just kidding. Phillip asks his father not to screw this up. He understands his general dislike for "all Cooper's" but Harley is a good mother. The conversation, somehow turns to Alexandra, and Phillip comments that he hasn't seen his Aunt since the wedding. Alan's phone rings and he takes the call in the hallway. It is Edmund, letting him know that Alexandra is on her way to the house. They set up a meeting at the Beacon. After Alan leaves, Olivia tells Phillip that she thinks he did right by Harley. She asks if their situation is going to work. Phillip says that he has had his doubts, then walks out, looking for Lizzie.

Alexandra walks in and asks how her new sister in law is. They have their normal catty banter and Alexandra pull out the tape. When Olivia asks what it is, Alexandra tells her "It's your wedding present."

Harley and Gus are still kissing when he pulls away and tells her that she will loose Zach. She explains that she is like Wee Lee (the ant in the story she was reading to Zach) and that she isn't going to let Phillip and Alan push her around. If she lets them get away with it now, they will keep trying to push her around. She tells Gus that she is going to clear his name, no matter what it takes; from eyewitnesses to DNA to exhuming the body. He stops her and tells her that she's not going any where near that body.

Phillip finds Lizzie and takes her into Zach's room to talk. They discuss that every family has problems, not just theirs. He asks her what she thinks about the three of them (Phillip, Lizzie and James) moving out of the mansion. He tells her that it may be a "big house, but it's starting to feel a little small." Lizzie says "You mean with Olivia here."

Alexandra lets Olivia know that she isn't going to destroy her family, she is there to fix what is wrong with it and that is Olivia. She tells her that she has known she was trouble from the moment she met her, only she gave her the benefit of the doubt because Alan was so smitten with her. She plays the tape and says "Next time you decide to get cozy with the best man on your wedding day, make sure there aren't any security cameras there." Olivia asks "What do you want?"

Gus tells Harley that there is one big piece of the story he didn't tell her. He starts telling the story "We lured him to the roof top and we were trying to get a taped confession out of him and get him arrested. But, that wasn't enough for Eden, she got angry, and she got impulsive, and she...(gestures a push) over the edge." When Harley asks why he was involved in luring this guy up to the roof he answers, "Because he was the man who actually shot my father." He tells her it was Frederico Santos. A surprised Harley asks "Eden killed Tony Santos' father?" Gus tells her that no one knows because the police sealed the records. He apologizes telling her, it doesn't matter, at the end of the day, Eden is still his sister and "If we dig any deeper, she is going to be a corpse."

Marah sitting alone at Company, types "TONY" into her cell phone. She puts the phone down and asks herself "What am I doing?"

Lizzie tells her father that she saw them (he and Olivia) avoiding each other at the wedding. He denies it, saying that he and Olivia get along fine. Lizzie asks if Alan knows what he is planning on doing. Phillip answers no, but defends himself by saying that Alan and Olivia are newlyweds and need some privacy. Lizzie smart mouths back "You know what? You can move out of the house, fine, but you can do it without me. I am staying." She storms out of the room. Phillip says her name three times, getting louder with each "Lizzie", and after he says her name for the third time he gets that 'I-can't-believe-my-daughter-talked-to-me-like-that-then-walked-out-on-me' look on his face.

Alan is sitting in "Olivia's" (the bar at the Beacon). Edmund walks up and tells Alan that Alexandra made him sleep on the porch and that she doesn't trust him, yet. When asking what she is after, Alan interrupts him saying, "I was hoping you could tell me that." Edmund agreed to help him for the right price. He hints around wanting in on the Spaulding family business. Alan agrees to think it over and leaves.

Alexandra tells Olivia that she knows about the pre-nup. She also know that there is a clause that states that if Olivia is caught cheating, she forfeits her share of the Beacon. Olivia protests that the kiss happened before they were married. Alexandra just laughs and tells her she should have read the fine print. The clause came into effect the moment she signed. Alexandra explains that she doesn't want Olivia to give up her hotel, she actually has a way of getting around that. She matter-of-factly points out, that because of Alan's heart condition, she knows that he couldn't consummate the marriage. Which means the marriage can be annulled and the pre-nup invalid. Olivia asks "You want me to walk away from my marriage?" Alexandra responds, yes, just leave with what you came with as long as it's not Alan or Phillip. When Olivia asks "What if I refuse?" Alexandra informs her that she will show Alan the tape and then Olivia will loose everything: Alan and her hotel! She ends the conversation with "It's your move Olivia."

Outside of Company
Gus and Harley discussed Eden and how she killed Tony's father. Harley wished he had told her sooner because now she understood why he had to hide the truth. Harley thought that maybe it would be self defense, but Gus said no because Eden knew what she was doing. Gus said if the Santos family knew that Eden killed one of their own, she would lose her life. Gus said that if Carmen were removed the Santos family would lose their power. But the look on Harley's face made her think that Gus was going to get even with the Santos. Gus wanted her to calm down. He admitted that everyone who had the name Santos was not evil.

She told Beth that Ed suggested she enter the dating game again, but she felt it was too soon. Beth suggested she take some time to be alone. She hoped that she had found someone in Bill.
