Lindsay is not happy that Lanie is at Sam's house, holding a sleeping Matthew. She's upset that her sis is back in her life because she's always taking things away from her, like the baby who needs a mother now. Matthew is not hers, Lanie corrects her and she's there because she and Sam are close and she needs a place to stay. Lindsay also blames Lanie for conspiring with Sam to keep her away from Will. The two discuss Lanie's marriage and she admits that Colin doesn't treat her the way she deserves. Lindsay tries to convince her otherwise. Lanie always wanted to leave her husband, after every affair but her sister tells her it only happened a few times and Colin really misses her and loves her. Lanie wants to know why Lindsay is defending him, why she's playing Cupid for him and whats in it for her. Lindsay lies and says two people who belong together should be. Lanie wonders if Lindsay would like it if she slept with her sister's man the way Lindsay slept with Colin. Lindsay vows to make amends.

When he wonders whether Bo will treat him like R.J., the commissioner begins to lose his temper. Jeff suggests that a new test be done but Bo calls John and requests he lock Jeff up for assault(from the previous attack in the alley at Lindsay's trial). Afterwards, John asks for Bo's help in a friend's search for her daughter. He'll do whatever he can to help, the police commish states, but maybe the daughter doesn't want to know or maybe loves her current family. Maybe she wants to be left alone, he mulls, deep in thought. John tells Bo that he always wondered about his own natural family and tried to find them but all records were lost in a fire.

Unsure what they're talking about, Meg explains that it's the perfect scheme because they will be in a different town each weekend, never around any place long enough to be found...finally "Bill and José" agree with the plan: Will and Cristian will now be roadies for Justin and Ric's band while Jess will become a backup singer. The group decision: "Let's rock and roll!"
Bo's Office – Llanview Police Department
Lindsay is the only one not surprised when she introduces her sister to Bo. She explains that since she and Melanie had been "on the outs for a while" but now had "found their way back to each other," she wanted to be the first to introduce Bo and Melanie. Too bad they'd already "met" – several times! Bo fessed up to the meeting at Sam's and changed the subject quickly by asking to talk to Lindsay alone. Bo thought that Lindsay might have better luck talking to Jeff Barnes than he had so he sent her off to try to get the information about Matthew's paternity while he promised to "watch" Melanie for Lindsay. In "getting to know each other better," Bo and Lanie discuss what a "small world" it is now that they know their respective connections to Lindsay – and the uncomfortable feelings they have because of it. They decide to keep their connection to each other to themselves but Melanie wants Bo to understand that she has a clear conscience because at the time of their "beautiful" encounter, she didn't think of herself as married. However, when Bo asks whether she feels married now, Melanie avoids answering the question. Instead, she wants Bo to know that Lindsay "is nuts about you."
MacIver's "Convalescent Home"
While Colin dozes in a chair near her bed, Nora awakens from a nightmare about the train crash calling out for Bo and trying to get up. Colin cautions her to stay on her back, keeping weight off her pelvis, and promises to get anything she wants "if it's within my power to get it." Since it's "home...home, please" that Nora wants, Colin tells her she will go home as soon as she's strong enough. When Nora asks about Sam, Colin promises that she will see him soon. But when she asks about Matthew, Colin is shocked to learn that Nora has a baby. "I need him...I want to hold him...he needs me, please." Feeling guilty, Colin promises to "fix it" and places a call to Lindsay.
Later, Colin gives Nora more medication to make her sleep and promises that while she does, he will "take care of everything...you will see your son again...you are going home."
Lockup at Llanview Police Department
Jeff Barnes is not surprised to have Lindsay visit him; in fact, Jeff "figured he'd be sending you around" to try to get the information he wouldn't give Bo. He admits that he had been traveling around "having fun with your half million dollars" but avoids a direct answer when Lindsay asks him whether he "tampered" with Matthew's DNA test results. Lindsay thinks Bo "deserves to know the truth" and is frustrated that Barnes won't tell her because "there are lives at stake here." Her cell phone rings and when Lindsay finally answers, she is chastised by Colin for not telling him about "everything" – translated "Matthew." Lindsay's cryptic message to Colin is that his "patient must be delusional" because "that's my baby – mine and Bo's." Colin doesn't buy this and threatens Lindsay that he's "not gonna help keep a mother from her child." Jeff Barnes is intrigued by having heard Lindsay's side of the conversation and tries to make a deal. "So, it's your baby now?...I'll say anything you want for another $500,000...I'm not stupid...I say I tampered with that test, I go straight to Statesville...as far as I'm concerned, those test results are legit...the kid belongs to Sam Rappaport...if he turns out to be Bo Buchanan's, then I guess there must have been some mix-up at the lab."
Back upstairs in Bo's office, Lindsay interrupts a close moment between Bo and Melanie to tell Bo that Barnes wouldn't tell her anything. Bo wasn't too surprised and told Lindsay that "there are other ways to find out what we want to know...if we still want to know." The big "if" worried Lindsay, but Bo dismissed it for later discussion and Melanie and Lindsay left to go to dinner together.
Kelly and Kevin sit at a table discussing how their joint campaign against Asa will affect the Buchanan family while Asa, Renee, Max and Blair enter to take the center table in the dining room so that Asa can "show that the Buchanans are back...back to stay." When Asa asks Kevin and Kelly to join the family table, Kevin and Asa trade accusations about whose fault it is that Jessica has run away. Same old, same old but Kevin observes that "there isn't that much to celebrate" until Jessica returns so Asa, to get the last word in, turns on Kelly about being married to Joey but dining with Kevin. As Blair wonders who the empty chair at their table is for, Skye enters and sits down at the table. Blair and Renee are disgusted, but the big surprise is that Asa, not Max, invited Skye to participate in the "family dinner" because "every family has a mistress," according to Asa. Renee takes offense at Asa's remark while Blair wants someone to "tell the witch where to go" so Renee takes Blair's side and, surprising Asa, tells Skye to "crawl under your rock again" and apologizes to Blair for Asa's behavior in inviting Skye to join them. When Asa asserts that "this is my dinner" Renee throws it right back at him and challenges, "She goes or I go" then blasts Max for his silence in not supporting Blair. As the discussion gets louder, Kevin and Kelly interrupt to show Asa the latest editions of The Banner and The Sun with the unflattering articles about him adorning the front pages of both papers. Asa tries to guilt Kevin into backing off by asking what Clint would think and when that doesn't work, brings up Kevin's anger over Grace's death but Kevin stands firm asserting the truth in the articles and telling Asa he is "dangerous." Asa insists to Blair that he will give her his shares so that she can have "49% of that rag" if she will fire Kelly as publisher of The Sun. Blair lies and tells Asa she had earlier sold "some" of her shares when Max had filed for divorce – and surprises both Asa and Kelly when she says she sold her shares to Kelly.
At another table, John Sykes and Rae Cummings are helping Sophia celebrate her acceptance into the Police Academy with champagne. They are somewhat dismayed with Sophia's attitude toward her new career: "A few months training and pass a physical...how hard can that be?" Later, Skye comes over and begins to flirt with John, insulting Rae in the process. Sophia challenges Rae not to let Skye get away with that, so later, in the ladies room, after trading insults about what each woman is "interested" in, Rae gives Skye a warning: "...if you don't stay away from John, I will cut your heart out."
In the ladies room, Blair explains to Kelly her motivation for lying about selling the stock shares. "I want a front row seat to watch Asa and Max squirm on that hook...your smear campaign works right into my plan..." Kelly protests that she and Kevin are "serious journalists" just doing their jobs, not making it personal. Blair advises Kelly that "things change..." since today she is married to Max, but tomorrow who knows? Kelly suggests that she and Blair "join forces" to bring Asa and Max "to their knees" with Max being first but when Skye overhears this "plot against your husband," Blair is forced to fake an argument with Kelly to cover their plan.
Back out in the dining room, Asa continues to make a scene; threatening to sue The Banner, he dismisses the stories as "garbage" but Renee thinks "there are good points in the articles" which infuriates Asa all the more. Max advises Asa he will "nose around to see if Kevin and Kelly have anything to hide." Kelly and Blair bring their "argument" back into the dining room causing Asa to thank Blair for trying to help with Kelly. Proclaiming "dignity is a vanishing act," a disgusted Renee leaves, trying to get Blair to come with her but, instead, Blair returns to the ladies room and takes on Skye, flushing her head in the toilet!
Llanview Police Department
Colin shows up to "report a missing woman" and is surprised when Bo taps him on the shoulder and offers to help. "Do you want to tell me about...the missing woman? Who is she?"
At the dinner, Max asked Blair about Skye's whereabouts. She denied
doing anything to her.
Toliethead went to the Buchanan mansion and Renee saw her and asked what happened, she guessed and laughed walking away. (It was about time Blair!)
Back at the dinner, Asa said he'll sue Kevin and Kelly for everything they've got and told Max to go home to get his lawyers started on filing for restraining orders. Blair left with him saying she'll help.
In walks in Melanie and Lindsay, as they get seated Asa looks on, "Good Lord! They're multiplying!"
Lindsay and Melanie spoke about Sam and then Colin and then compared him to Bo. "Who's the clone?" quipped Asa, before excusing Lindsay to the side. He asked her why hasn't Bo come to him with the news yet. She told him he blew it once he backed out of their deal. "Bo will have his son, I'll have Bo, and you will have nothing... You will get what's yours," she said, then went back to her table and told her Colin was a saint compared to Bo's father, Asa Buchanan.
At the Police Station, Bo questions Colin about the missing woman. Colin responds by asking him about him about the personal business he had with Melanie. Bo asks if she is the missing woman or is there another woman. (Nice choice of words Bo!)
Bo continued by telling him he knows she walked out on him. Colin angrily asks him if she told him before or after he slept with her.
Then Colin gets into it with Bo and asks him where she was. Bo didn't answer, so Colin said he'll find her himself and left.
In walks in R.J., complaining about tickets for jaywalking, parking, etc. Bo was not aware of it, but told him if he obeyed the law he would not be cited. (What hypocrisy!) R.J. said what does he know about obeying the law. A cop walks in and tells him Jeff Barnes is ready to talk.
R.J. asks if that was the same Jeff Barnes who was supposed to testify at Lindsay's trial. Bo excuses R.J. and talks with Jeff, but he wants to play games so Bo dismisses him. R.J. walks with Jeff back to his cell.
At the gallery, Lindsay walks in to see Colin. Colin started to break on her till Lindsay told him to shut up and in walks in Melanie. Colin tells her he misses her and then kisses her. Melanie gets all into it till Lindsay says she could leave and Melanie breaks from the trance and said it was a mistake and walks out. Lindsay called him a idiot. Colin told her her check bounced and she said she'll help him get Melanie back and she hasn't so the deal's off.
At Nora's, Ben tells Sam that he has his ‘people' looking for Will. Now the mob and the police are on the search. Sam brings up Renee stopping by to pick up the file he had on her son and feels there's something there he could use against Asa. Ben warned him off and Sam asked why not. Ben tells him to do what he has to do and walks out.
Bo shows up and Melanie answers the door. Sam asked what's up and Bo stares at Matthew.
Back at Asas', Max walks into the living room to see candles lit and a dessert awaiting him. He grabs a strawberry and Blair screams out "don't," afraid Skye poisoned them, but finds out it was Renee's idea. She wanted to do something for the couple and said it's for the two not the three and before leaving congratulates Blair on her scene in the ladies room. Blair started to seduce Max and it was working until in walks in Toliethead pouting about what Blair did to her. She poisoned the whip cream as Max asked what happened, Toliethead said never mind and walked out.
Blair and Max ate the poisoned strawberries and were going to continue upstairs but the drugs took effect and Max passed out downstairs. "Not again," he said. Blair passed out on the bed. Skye walks in with scissors, "Say good-bye Rapunzel," as she cut her hair off. (Blair better kill her for that! Shave her head---while she's awake-duct-taped to the chair!!!)
