Blair accuses Todd of being willing to ruin The Sun rather than sharing it with her. Todd, in turn, accuses Blair of believing that everything he does revolves around her. The paper has one vision, one opinion, he tells her, and that opinion is his. Blair explains that she has grown to love the paper while he was away and thinks that they can work together as a great team. She convinces him to let her help a little, like with the writers, but she's not going to change Todd. Todd and Blair leave to go to the Palace Hotel.
Todd and Carlo meet for the very first time at the Palace Hotel. Carlo welcomes Todd back as someone who has also recently arisen from the dead. Carlo tells Todd that Blair used to give him a fair chance until Blair started listening to Patrick. Patrick convinced Blair that Carlo is really Poseidon, and is therefore responsible for Todd's 'death'. Carlo asks if the Sun will be treating him more fairly now that Todd is back. Todd says that it's up to his editor-in-chief and looks at Blair. Blair tells Carlo bluntly, "not in my lifetime".
Blair is curious if Todd meant what he said about her being an editor. Todd says that "editor" will mainly be just a title, but grudgingly admits that she did OK while he was away. He tells her The Sun needs more stories with an edge, not warm and fuzzy stories with happy endings. Todd suddenly decides to go back to work and tells Blair that he'll drop her off at the penthouse on the way.
(Todd and Blair's penthouse) Todd comes downstairs after saying goodnight to Starr. He decides not to go to work after all, but he sleeps downstairs on the couch while Blair goes upstairs to bed.

Drew tries to explain, but Becky Lee cuts him off. Bo's got plenty of money. He wouldn't even miss it if he gave some to Becky Lee. What's the big deal? Bo isn't upset really about the money, but about the fact that Becky Lee kept Drew hidden from him all these years. Bo wanted to be a part of Drew's life. When Drew showed up, Bo thought he was getting a second chance, but all he was to them was a cash machine.
Becky Lee claims that if Bo had found them, he would have taken Drew away from her. Bo says he would never do such a thing and if he ever gave her that impression, he's sorry. It's very late, Bo says. He'll get Becky Lee a room at the Palace and they will discuss everything tomorrow.
