Skye's Room, The Palace Hotel
Max pulls away from Skye, the "hustling, blackmailer," declaring that "it proves I'm off my rocker to even consider sleeping with you...you aren't stealing my mojo because I have a wife I truly love - an emotion you know nothing about." Skye admits she was "just calling your bluff" and accuses Max of being a "big talker with an even bigger ego...but when push comes to shove you just shrivel up and go south." After more of Max's "cons" and "abuse," Skye challenges Max: "I'm holding all the aces; any way you play your hand, I win." Max admits to Skye that what he's doing is for his future and that of his wife and children, too: "Whatever it takes to stay a Buchanan, I will do." Max theorizes that he could push Skye out a window and doctors would testify that he wasn't responsible for his actions. He grabs Skye and threatens, "I am desperate enough to squeeze the life out of you" but lets her go declaring, "You're not worth it." Skye agrees to make a deal with Max: she won't go public with her information as long as Max's "charade" serves her purposes - "to keep Asa focused on getting revenge on Ben." Skye also wants to know why Max hasn't "confided" his plan to Blair. In the beginning, Max confides he "wanted to protect Blair," but now is reluctant to spill all: "I got my reasons...I said too much already." Later, Blair comes to Skye's room looking for Max and Skye enjoys telling Blair that Max "burst in here and practically attacked me." Blair accuses Skye of "seducing a brain-damaged man" and they trade insults and threats - nothing new for these two.
Maryland Cabin: Jessica, Cristian, Will, Roseanne
As they are kissing on the bed, Cristian declares his love for Jessica. Jessica is kissing him back, but suddenly pulls away. "I can't do this...this isn't right...I'm with Will...I love him, not you...please take me home." A hurt Cristian agrees to this and declares, "I won't bother you again." As they prepare to leave the cabin, Will bursts in threatening to kill Cristian. Jessica separates them and screams, "Don't you remember what happened the last time?" Roseanne enters the room as Jessica tells Will, "I had a choice...I chose you." Later, Cristian admitted to Roseanne that he brought Jessica to the cabin "to remember the feelings we had when we tried to elope...I thought I was over her...I was wrong...I finally got that Jess is done with me...it's over...I'm sorry for it all." Roseanne was uncharacteristically quiet and just asked Cris to take her home. In Will's car, Jessica "explained" her actions to Will: "I didn't sleep with him...didn't even think of it...we talked, that's all...I told him how I felt about you...he kept bringing up the past...I didn't go behind your back...I love you and I told him exactly how I feel about you - right before you got there." Will stopped the car to tell Jessica "the most important thing I've ever said to anyone in my entire life...I never doubted you and your love for me, not even for a second...I was right because you just told me...I love you and I know you love me...you proved that...that makes me about the happiest guy in the world."
Sam and Nora's New House
Sam encourages Nora to "be honest" with him about what happened with Bo in the warehouse saying that he "totally understands" how it "had to affect you deeply" but that he doesn't understand "how you went from reviving him to dancing with him." Nora is confused about her feelings but agrees that "something did happen...I'd gotten used to not having him as my husband...but I realized I wasn't ready to not have him in my life at all...to never see him smile...to never hear him call me ‘Red'...everything that we were...wiped out in an instant...that it would only be real in my head...wouldn't be nearly enough..." Sam thinks he understands all too well, "It's very simple...you never stopped loving Bo." Later, promising to be "completely honest," Nora continues, "I realized I still cared for Bo...if that's love, it's not romantic, but it is that deep." Sam says he understands the deep feelings but is afraid that Nora isn't being honest with herself because the dancing "sure looked romantic" to him and Lindsay. Nora wants to "open herself up completely" to Sam because "I trust you...otherwise I wouldn't have agreed to marry you" and confides that "there was a moment when Bo and I might have kissed...we didn't...nothing happened...in that moment we both realized we had moved on...I love you...it's not betrayal...this had nothing to do with us." Nora reminds Sam that he kissed Lindsay at the fishing cabin, but Sam disagrees with the comparison because "I do not love Lindsay anymore, not that way." Nora tearfully tells Sam that the point of the comparison is that "what might have happened between Bo and me didn't...nothing happened because I love you...nothing has changed between us and that moment with Bo only made that clearer to me...that moment taught me that I loved you, without hesitation, without doubt...that I wanted to marry you and that I had to get back to you...I don't want anything to change...I want our plans to happen just like we planned, our marriage, our honeymoon, and our life together...I love you and tonight I just realized how deep that love really is...I'd be lost without you...I was lost tonight, just a little while ago..." Sam embraces Nora and promises, "You're not lost now." Nora asks Sam to "just hold me...don't ever let me go...let's stay here amidst the reminders of the wedding that is going to happen for us...let's make this house a home...stoke the fire and we'll lie on the floor next to each other...I just need to be near you." As Nora headed to the car to get a blanket, Sam verbally agreed with her that they "are settled" but the worried look on his face (which Nora doesn't see) indicates differently.
Lindsay tells Bo that "there are things going on inside of me that I want to tell you...I hope you have enough respect left for me that you will hear what I have to say." Lindsay explains that she is "completely mortified for my bad behavior" and "for the first time" agrees with Nora's assessment of her as a "neurotic idiot." "You almost died tonight...and I was thinking about me...my wounded pride...I am completely ashamed of myself...you saw the most monstrous side of me...I don't expect you to understand or forgive me...I want to thank you for the most astonishing and wonderful love affair I've ever had in my life...and to say good-bye..." Lindsay explains that she is going to Europe to spend time with elusive daughter Jennifer. "I have a lot of issues and ugly truths to face about myself...I hope it's not too late to change..." While they both agree there are "no hard feelings" between them, Bo wants to address Lindsay's problems of "insecurity." Lindsay agrees that she needs therapy and a support group and promises to find one in Europe, but Bo thinks "the kind of therapy I had in mind would be best if it happened here...everybody makes mistakes...you made a big one tonight...but that doesn't mean I can't forgive you..." Bo wants to "set things up" so Lindsay can have "more faith in me and the love I feel for you...I was thinking along the lines of marriage...will you marry me, Lindsay?" Later, after pacing, Lindsay answers Bo's "unexpected" marriage proposal: "No, I can't marry you...it wouldn't be right...I love you much too much to make that kind of mistake...I will never forget that you asked." Lindsay hugs Bo and leaves the apartment as the camera pans to Bo and Nora's wedding photo.
After a troubling dream involving Bo, Nora awoke and asked Sam to marry her today. Sam had to be persuaded to go along with Nora's idea and agreed to head down to the courthouse for the ceremony. Nora convinced a stubborn Judge Fitzwater to stop court proceedings and perform her wedding. A disturbed Sam called an abrupt halt to the wedding and told Nora that although he loved her, he couldn't marry her. Meanwhile, Bo devised a clever ruse to bring Lindsay to the police station and explained his reasons for wanting to marry her. Lindsay questioned Bo about his feelings for Nora and he admitted that he would always love her, but he was in love with Lindsay. A romantic Bo once again proposed to Lindsay and this time she happily accepted. As Roseanne continued to stonewall Cristian, R.J. advised her to forget about him. A surprised Asa walked in on a steamy moment between Will and Jessica and became enraged that they were still together. Later, Asa initiated an audit of the books at the Megan Foundation.
