Michelle is searching for Tony in the forest on the island. She finds him lying unconscious at the bottom of a steep ledge. She is able to wake him by throwing pebbles at him and discovers he has dislocated his knee. After Michelle climbs down to him and re-sets his knee, they discover there is no way back to the top of the ledge. Michelle remarks that perhaps Tony is being rewarded for following her on a wild goose chase.

At Farley's Bar, Reva is trying to convince Josh to have a family Thanksgiving at Cross Creek. Josh tries to persuade Reva to go to France and see Marah instead, insisting no one will want to be around Jonathan. Reva doesn't give up, but is interrupted by Jonathan who appears and immediately begins to harass Josh. Before Josh can respond, Bill and Olivia arrive and invite the rest of the Lewis family to join them for dinner at Cross Creek. Josh and Reva are outraged to discover that before Phillip died, he obtained the property and then left the land to Olivia in his will. Olivia says she doesn't want to fight with them and will sign the land over to her husband Bill. Josh thinks this is a wonderful idea since it will at least remain in the Lewis family. Bill refuses Olivia's offer and states the land is already in the family since Olivia is his wife. Reva and Josh glare at Olivia. Jonathan defends Olivia by taking her side and saying he would love to spend Thanksgiving at Cross Creek with her. Josh and Reva decide to go to France after all.

At Company, Gus and Harley discuss the possibility that Buzz may have killed Phillip. He is the only one with the alarm code to Company. Gus realizes Harley is not prepared to implicate her father. He reminds her by wanting to protect her family she is doing what he did for his aunt. Harley gets riled and tells Gus she is not like him and would expect her father to take responsibility if in fact he is guilty of murdering Phillip. Buzz arrives with Zack and interrupts their conversation. Harley asks Gus to take Zack outside so she can speak to her father. Gus and Zach bond over each having lost their fathers. Once alone, Buzz tells Harley he signed Company over to Phillip in an attempt to stop the war between the Coopers and Spauldings. Buzz tells his daughter immediately after giving the restaurant to Phillip, he regretted doing so after seeing the gleam in his eye. Harley pointedly asks her father if he killed Phillip. Buzz will only answer with 'What's done is done.' Before he leaves he tells Harley he knows for certain she is not responsible for Phillip's death.

At the police station Alan visits Alexandra in her jail cell. He tells her they must stand together to distribute punishment to all those who deserve it for the death of Phillip. Alan also tells her they will not wallow in their grief, but will strike back. He expresses regret for allowing Alexandra to languish in jail while Phillip needed them. With a grave expression he leaves to go to a meeting. Alexandra calls a guard and has him summon Buzz Cooper.

She told a disappointed Edmund that she couldn't think about their wedding until she resolved the painful situation with Tammy.

Edmund called Sandy with a mysterious request.

Holly put on a slinky dress to have dinner with Sebastian. Holly reminisced about her love/hate relationship with alcohol. She leaned in close to tell him in a husky voice that she often had to engage in other sensual experiences so as not to indulge in liquor. Sebastian called Holly on her seduction ploy and asked how far she was willing to go to save herself. Holly kissed him passionately until he bent over in pain and violently threw her back into a cell. He left to hunt for Michelle and Tony, leaving a bottle of wine within Holly's reach.

"Lizard" Lizzie with sidekick Roxy gloated to Coop over her new position as owner of Company. Lizzie vowed to take over where her father left off. Marina balked at being a Spaulding employee again. Alan told Lizzie that her father would have been very proud of her.

Alexandra revealed to Buzz that she saw him race out of Company on the night of Phillip's murder. Both wondered if Phillip was alive when each of them left Company. Alexandra proposed that they give each other an alibi. Buzz refused but Alex insisted that they work together to end the feuding between the Cooper and Spaulding families. Buzz finally agreed to the deal and kissed her. Alan arrived with a bag to tell Alex that she was a free woman because he had arranged for a pardon from the governor. Alex made a beeline for Company.

Buzz told Coop that he would do anything to see Coop's dreams come true. Lizzie invited Buzz to stay and work for her as manager. Lizzie planned to give the restaurant a theme like retro or macrobiotic and change the theme to something hipper like Elizabeth & Company. The Coopers bet on how long Lizzie would last at Company.

Cassie tells Tammy that she and Edmund have set a tentative wedding date, and asks Tammy to be her Maid of Honor.

She also calls Ross, who is having dinner with the Coopers. Dinah wishes him a happy holiday and tells him that she is at a dinner party and having a great time.

When Gus arrives at the Spaulding Mansion, they discover that they are both worried about Alan and are afraid that he will attempt to seek justice on his own. Gus speaks to Alan, and attempts to convince him that they need to lean on each other to make it through.
