Joey took Barbara to the carriage house and told her how much he loved her. Barbara was intrigued to learn that Cassie and Kevin used to live in the carriage house as well. Sykes wasn't happy when Congressman Graham put the pressure on him to protect Barbara in the murder investigation. Lindsay was alarmed by her conversation with Bo when he mentioned "ending it" and "finding some peace." Nora and Clint showed up at the gallery and Nora took Bo home. Nora tried to reach out to Bo, but he remained distant with her. Bo started to write notes and packed a box of Drew's things. Bo worried Nora when he suddenly took off. Bo went to Club Indigo and called Sam and asked him to meet him there. Meanwhile, Will and Roseanne argued about Cristian and Jessica. Todd showed Will that he had the painting. Téa arrived and in the confusion, Will took off with the painting. Will returned home and attempted to call Cristian, but he stopped himself. Roseanne arrived and during another argument with Will, they ripped the painting in half. Back at the penthouse, Todd slipped into his Rod personality and was happy to see Téa. Téa said that she had an idea to help Todd's case and nervously told him that they should get a divorce!
As the pressure mounted for Dorian, Mel decided to write the endorsement in order to help her. Dorian's victory was short lived when she realized that she might be losing Mel's affection in the process. Kevin and Kelly reviewed the events on the night that Drew was murdered. Kevin and Kelly realized that Kevin was the actual target and it appeared that Drew knew the shooter's identity. Kelly and Kevin went to question Dorian at the gallery and found out that Drew had called that night looking for Kevin. Kelly got angry with Dorian for not telling Kevin about the call. Nora decided that a baby might help Bo cope with Drew's death. Nora confided to Asa that she hadn't opened Bo's medical results. Asa took it upon himself to look at the results and was stunned to read that Bo couldn't father a child. Asa took the results and hid them from Nora. Bo met with Sam at Club Indigo to make sure that Nora would be taken care of. Bo returned home and he and Nora made love. Later, Nora discovered Bo had gone, but what she didn't know was that Bo had left on a boat. Meanwhile, Téa tried to explain to Todd that her need to divorce him was just legal strategy. Todd worried that without a legal bond, he would lose Téa. Todd seemingly agreed to the divorce in front of Téa, but he later told Sam that he didn't want a divorce.

Sam admits he would like nothing better than to throw her down on the sofa and make love to her but he has to be 100 percent focused. Blair questions what he sees in her. They are so different. Sam says that different is good and she makes him feel alive and bring an element of surprise to his life. So does a pie in the face, Blair reminds him. Sam says he was becoming cynical and jaded before they met. Life would be dull without her. He could get cheap thrills from a roller coaster ride too, she counters. He laughs. This is what he loves. Her blistering honesty, like when they first met and Blair told him about marrying Asa for the money. That kind of honesty is rare. Blair replies that she was probably protecting herself so he would run before he had the chance to hurt her. He mentions Todd. All he can do is talk about being a good husband and father. Blair decides to go with the gusto and tell Sam the truth. "Todd is faking it", she says. "What?", Sam asks disbelievingly. "He's faking it", Blair insists.

After Todd tucks Starr back in he comes downstairs clutching her teddy bear and then he throws it to the side and picks up the phone. He tells Briggs that Blair decided that she does not like the headline. Obviously it is too late to pull it. It is already on the trucks. Todd says that he will tell Pete to come out and he'll tell him to take each one out of every one's hands, no matter what.
Sam's House- Blair and Sam
Sam says it is a fine time to start believing Todd is faking it. She should save that for after the trial. He hates to do this but he will have to throw her out. Blair can't believe she is being dismissed. It is not that Sam wouldn't love to stay with her all night long, but... Blair says if this was Nora, he would listen.

She suggest that if doesn't want troublesome interruptions, he should not answer the phone or the door.

Nora accuses Lindsay of worming her way into the family one way or another. Clint reminds her she is already in the family and she came tonight because he asked her to and because Lindsay cares about Bo. Nora is certain that Lindsay cares only for the Buchanan name and the Buchanan's money. He realizes it is time to go. Nora promises to tell him when she hears from Bo. Clint says that if he was wrong letting Lindsay come to her house tonight, he is sorry. Lindsay is upset that he apologized to Nora.

As she picks up the envelope to read it, (what is with this girl and other folks mail?) Asa comes in and asks if she is in the habit of reading other folks mail. Asa read my mind. Lindsay quickly turns the tables on old Asa and asks why Bo's mail was on his desk opened.

Todd's Penthouse (Blair, Téa, Sam, Nora)

She tells him that she's found a judge that will grant her a divorce based on the fact that the man she married no longer exists. Todd sounds disappointed and Téa asks if he's alright with it.

Nora leaves and Sam goes after her to see if she's alright. In the lobby Nora asks him to tell her what he and Bo discussed before he left.

Written by: Meredeth Haley
In the opening scene, Mel is sharing his Dorian problems with Carlotta. Mel resents the fact that he has to endorse Graham for re-election. However, Dorian arrives before he can get into the details of this situation.
At Club Indigo, Max is ecstatic at reading the headlines of the Sun. The headlines, "Bo Steals Stiff" under the by lines of Blair Cramer suggest to Max that Blair has chosen him over Sam. He does not realize that Blair did not write the article.
At Sam's house, Blair and Sam are having an argument about the article. Blair starts off the argument with, "Sam, will you love me no matter what? Yes, or No, would you still love me if I wrote the story?" Sam just stares at Blair saying nothing. Blair in her erratic state exclaims, "Why do I even bother? I am going to lose no matter what I say!" In a consoling voice, Sam just asks for the truth. "I told you the truth," she exclaimed, "but you do not believe me." "No, you need to tell me the whole truth." "Why is everything so black and white with you. You are a lawyer Sam, everything is not that simple" cried Blair. "Sometimes everything is that simple. Truth is that simple. I am a lawyer; I know when I am getting a snow job! All right look, You kick a man when he is down, Blair, that is wrong! When you write an article like this, when some one can not defend himself—that is wrong! Do I have to go on." "What about Todd?"questioned Blair. "We are talking about you!" "Yes, we are" but Todd had pulled every filthy trick in the book, "rape, hostages! But you love him, you stand beside him, you protect him!" Blair complained. "Todd is another matter." "To you, but it is obvious to me that I do not warrant the same unconditional love, Do I Sam."
The next scene takes place in Todd's penthouse. Kelly is about to give Rod/Todd a suitcase of money for the sale of the Banner. Kevin tries to prevent Kelly from doing this. He believes that Todd will use the money to leave the country. During this conversation Rod responds to Kevin by saying, "Kevin, you do not know me, I am a lover, not a fighter!" Kevin realizes that he will not be able to dissuade Todd from taking the money, so he tries to verbally persuade Kelly against this by suggesting that Todd had something to do with Drew's death. Téa enters the penthouse and puts a stop to Kelly's attempted business transaction claiming that Rod/Todd is in not condition to make such a business arrangement. After Kelly and Kevin leave, Téa tells Todd that the divorce has come through.
The scene shifts to Carlotta's diner. Mel, Dorian, and Congressman Graham are having a discussion. The discussion is about Mel's endorsement of Graham in order to protect Dorian. "Congressman," Mel asks, "You are getting what you want, why can't you try to show some class and don't blow it." "Who's gloating," replied Graham smugly, "I am enjoying one of those moments when the press, shall I say, cooperates." "Well, I guess I could not expect civilized behavior from someone who would stoop so low as to blackmail." Angry, Graham responded, "I am doing what ever I have to do. The same way that you have to do! Unless, you and your lovely wife would like to take your chances with the police commissioner, but, somehow I do not think that you have the guts to do that!" At this point, Dorian can not remain silent any longer. "Congressman, my husband has more guts in his little pinkie than you have in your entire body. Furthermore, My husband in not going to write one more word of endorsement for you. The deal is OFF!" "Well if you do that," threatened Graham, "you will be making a big mistake." "No, my husband and I have nothing to hide. Where as you, the way that you operate, it is going to turn around and slap you in the face!" Mel is proudly smiling at his wife when Graham addresses him. "Well you, Mr. Conscientious of the community, are you going to let your wife pay the price?" "You heard the lady, the deal is off!" "You will regret this, the both of you."
Graham walks away. Sykes overheard the entire conversation. Graham asks Sykes, "What's up?" Sykes tells Graham that he has Monk in custody. Graham wants to speak to Monk alone. Sykes tries to warn Graham of the possibility of real trouble for Barbara. Graham replies, "Don't worry about her, I am handling this," As the two are about to leave, Barbara and Joey enter the diner. Sykes wants a word alone with Barbara. After a few comments, Barbara storms away leaving Sykes standing there.
Back to Sam and Blair. At this time, they are still in the midst of a heated argument. Sam asks Blair, "How can you compare my relationship with Todd to my relationship to you?" Blair responded emotionally, "Why not, we are both two people that you care about?" "In completely two different ways, I have known Todd since he was a kid!" Blair is angered at this point and screams, "Todd is not a kid, Sam. He is a grown man who has been taking you for a ride since you came to town."" Sam quietly responded that Todd was damaged. Even more angered that before, Blair rants, "Yea, Todd is damaged, what about me, Sam? Do you even know what my life was like? I came from nothing! I had to marry a man old enough to be my grandfather in order to take care of my sick mother! Yes, I married Asa for his money!! Oh, but I am not damaged, I am not for you!!! I am not worthy of your compassion." Sam took a long hard look into Blair's eyes and said, "It is not my compassion that you need, but my respect. I am finding it very hard of respecting someone who is capable of writing that article." "I did not write that article!!!!" screamed Blair. Sam responded, "Your name is on it." Blair takes a breath and reflects about this situation. Calmly Blair says to Sam, "But it does not matter if I wrote it, because the question is whether you could forgive me if I did? Oh Sam, let me tell you something, I am capable of it. I can be as manipulative, deceitful, in playing all kinds of games - or is the real truth here 'Hey - I am not Nora!'"
Back at the diner, Mel and Dorian share a heartwarming moment. Dorian apologizes for placing Mel in this predicament. She reassures Mel, that she has another way of getting this situation resolved. Dorian's eyes glare at Barbara as she says this. At this point, Kevin and Kelly enter the diner. They were arguing about the Todd situation when Barbara interrupts them to offer condolences to Kelly for Drew's death. However she does not waste the moment to smear Kevin and Kelly's face when she puts her arm around Joey and becomes all lovey dovey.
Back to Blair and Sam. Sam is starting to get angry. He thought Blair was past this jealousy over Nora. Blair admits that deep down she is a jealous and insecure person. During the argument Blair after pouring her heart out, requests Sam to make a choice. She wants Sam to choose her over Nora and Todd. By this point, Blair is in hysterics. Sam grabs Blair and kisses her passionately. At the end of the kiss, Sam whispers, "Don't ask me to make a choice right now. Todd's trial is about to begin. Nora's life is a nightmare right now" Blair interrupts him, "Right, you do not have to tell me anymore, I will get my dirt on Bo somewhere else because I am sneaky and unreliable. You know, Sam, it is really too bad. I thought we really had a good thing going." Blair quietly exits the room leaving Sam standing there.
Back at the Diner, Dorian calls asking a favor of Carlotta. She wants Carlotta to give Barbara a fake note saying, "Meet me at the Gallery, Kevin". Barbara makes excuses with Joey in order to meet Kevin. When she arrives, it is not Kevin that she finds, but Dorian.
At Club Indigo, R.J. set up a meeting with Monk for Mel, Kevin, and Kelly. Monk told them that he sold the gun to a real classy lady named Dorian. I guess Graham found a way to get back at Dorian after all.
