Today's recap was provided by Cheryl Paster-Di Pilla

Max has blurted out that Blair is his wife!! Asa and Renee can't believe it! Asa tells Max that he's stabbed him in the back after he's just pulled out the first knife. Renee tries to get everyone to calm down. Max says he loves Blair, but he also wants to live at the Buchanan mansion if they will accept it all. Asa exclaims over his dead body!! Max really didn't want to upset Renee, but he can't help who he loves. He thinks "his parents" should give it a try to Renee agrees. It doesn't help that Blair calls them mom and pop! Renee will try to persuade Asa to accept it.

Jess is waiting at the carriage house for Joey when Will shows up. He feels bad that everyone in his family seems to be a liar, but Jess assures him it's not his fault about Ben. He thinks Viki is better off now anyway. Jess wonders why he's so ecstatic and he reports because he was making Dorian feel miserable! It's just great; she's being tortured by finding all kinds of things around the house to remind her of the accident and she deserves it. Jess is upset by this; Megan wouldn't have wanted this and would be upset too that he's enjoying this so much. He's tortured her by presenting her with a lawsuit, he says.

Dorian is with Lindsay, Sam and Nora at her place. She insists that Will is harassing her. Bo shows up because Dorian's alarm system went off. Lindsay finally admits finding Will's watch outside. Dorian tells Bo he has to stop Will, but Bo says he has no evidence. The watch only means that Will was there at one time. Lindsay and Sam would like to speak with Will and Bo agrees that's for the best. He doesn't believe that Will has done anything. In the meantime, Dorian mentions how interesting it is to see the 4 others all congregated in one place and rearranged. She almost spills the beans on what Lindsay has done with Bo's test and attempts to worm her way out of it. She then demands that Will be arrested.

Ben shows up at Viki's door;she's thrilled to see him. They both admit they're not feeling too great. Ben tells her that he's bringing the divorce papers to Skye. They hope this whole ordeal is over soon. Over at the Palace, Skye is setting up a romantic dinner for herself and Ben. She wants them to be happy again. When he finally arrives he explains how important Viki is to him. Skye admits she's jealous. She wanted to mess up his life when she first got to Llanview, but now she wants him back. She attempts to seduce him. Ben admits that what they had was hot, but not love like he has with Viki. He hands her the divorce papers, but she won't sign, he'll come back to her. Ben tells her she'll be sorry and leaves.

Roseanne spots Cristian having a beer at Rodi's. She assumes he's drinking because of Jess. He bemoans the fact that he would be in NY right now with Jess and Megan, but his scholarship can go to someone else. He cannot go there alone, he says, but Rosie offers to go with him. She finally persuades him to go.

Will tells Jess he has not been the one to harass Dorian. They wonder about their futures now that so much has happened in their lives. When Will's parents show up, Jess heads for home. Lindsay tells Will she found his watch. He agrees that he's the one who threatened Dorian, but only with the lawsuit. His parents are unsure and while they are thinking about it all, he storms out and heads for Asa's house, where he asks if the job is still open.

Jess finds Viki, who tells her about Ben being by and they chat about Jess' life now.

Bo doesn't believe Will is seeking revenge, he tells Dorian and Nora. Every night he's at the hospital nursery looking at the newborns and every morning there's a flower at Megan's grave. Nora and Bo head out for a drink. They chat about Will and Drew. They wonder what Dorian was hinting at previously when she mentioned that Lindsay was responsible for breaking them up.

Dorian hears a baby crying again. When she opens the front door an envelope is stuck in her mailbox with cut out letters spelling out "IT'S NOT OVER."

Ben goes back to Viki's. When she asks him what happened, he evades the question and says everything will be ok. Skye refused to sign the papers.

Skye tosses the papers in the fireplace.

Today's recap was provided by Marti Dixon

The show began when Asa found Starr and her friends trashing his living room. Above the noise, he called Will at the Carriage house, where he and Kelly were getting ready for work. Jessica came over, and Kelly told her that Cristian was leaving today.

In Angel Square, Cristian and Roseanne were moving out of his apartment... on their way to New York. Jessica came, just as they were getting ready to leave. Roseanne tried to rush him out, but he stayed a few minutes to talk with Jess. He told her that he wanted her to give him a reason to stay. She said that she didn't want to ruin his dream of being a famous artist. Even though Cris reminded her that she was his dream, Jess still let him go without admitting that she still loved him. Rosey came back and assured Jess that she would take good care of Cristian. He gave her the keys to the condo that Asa had bought for them. After she left, Roseanne was still trying to get Cris to go, but he just stood there, looking at a picture of Jessica.

Viki called Skye from the Banner and ordered her to get there within the hour. When she arrived, Viki informed her that she can be fired, but can't quit... according to her contract. Viki threatened to sue her and blacklist her from journalism, if she didn't continue to do her best for the Banner. Ben came in, then Skye walked in on he and Viki kissing. When he wanted to know why she was there, Viki explained about the contract.

John Sykes came in and yelled at Rae for the letter in her column to the rapist. He went to breakfast with her, because he was concerned for her safety. Rae feels responsible for bringing the rapist to town, and thought the letter would help keep him from hurting anyone else. They were at Rodi's, where Brian is the new bartender. He was reading the letter, from behind the bar. Rae told John that Sophia hasn't been to work, so she's a little worried. Kelly came in, looking for Joey, but only stayed a few minutes.

Sam was at his office, tyring to reach Jen and ask her to come to Llanview for her semester break. Ben had been at Sam's law office, working with him to get a divorce from Skye. Will and Nora came in. Nora thought that Will was working for Sam, but when Asa came looking for him, they explained that he's working at Megan's Foundation. Sam and Nora tried to convince Will that Asa was using him, but he went back to Asa's mansion with him, anyway. They were planning to have lobster for lunch, when Jesica came in. She had the keys to the condo with her.

Téa met R.J. at the diner and finally admitted that she cared for him. Jessica and Cristian attempted to reach each other before he left for New York, but circumstances and Will and Roseanne conspired to keep them apart. Later, Jessica and Will made a toast to the future as Roseanne and Cristian left for New York City. Ben walked out after arguing with Viki over her decision to hold Skye to her employment contract at the Banner. Meanwhile, Skye hinted to Kevin that there was more to her past with Ben than anyone knew. Viki later explained to Ben that she believed Skye would grant him a divorce if she was forced to see them together every day. At Rodi's, Brian kept a close eye on Sykes and Rae as he formulated his response to Rae's letter. At the Banner, Rae and Sykes found a letter from "Butterfly Man" that proved he had followed Rae from town to town. Meanwhile, Brian returned home in a rage and vowed that the police would never catch him.
