In Melanie's room, Bo and Melanie woke up together and in love, though there was a momentary scare when Bo teased Melanie and told her he needed to arrest her -- for what had gone on during the night. Later, he told her he needed to know the truth in everything, as she looked away, feeling guilty. She wanted to become engaged, and they agreed to marry. Bo still had the ring he had picked out earlier, which he presented to Melanie. They decided to return to Llanview, and after Bo left to check out, Melanie decided to keep her secret and prayed it wouldn't matter.
Roseanne woke up in Colin's bed and was confused. She didn't know where she was or how she had gotten there. When he returned to the room and teased her for having to dash off to work for R.J., she realized who he was. She denied that R.J. was her employer and tried to make a hasty retreat. Colin taunted her on becoming his "next victim" as she attempted to pull away from him.
Roseanne began to yell for help, and Lindsay burst into the room, looking for her sister. She told Colin that Melanie had disappeared, but he only smirked and said that Melanie had probably run away because of her secret. He said maybe that meant Lindsay could get Bo. Lindsay threatened to destroy Colin, as did Roseanne -- she didn't want it known that she had been there. Once the women left, Colin received a phone call that quickly agitated him.
When Skye awakened, she was surprised to find Max sitting in her room. Renee had let him in. She was disgusted with him and demanded that he leave, since he had never trusted her, though he claimed to love her. Max insisted he had never really believed she shot him and was surprised to learn that Skye had taken and passed another lie detector test. He was relieved there was a new suspect but didn't think Rae would shoot anyone. He was convinced that Todd and/or Blair would and offered to hatch a plan. Skye agreed to a business deal only.
Rae woke up after a restless night, tossing and turning over Blair's accusation. She apologized to John if she had kept him awake, but she had decided she wanted him to investigate her. She'd like to look guilty by creating another suspect in herself so that Skye's case would be reopened, in order to buy Skye some time. John refused.
Blair left a sleeping Todd so she could go through her things. He suddenly awakened and demanded to know where she was going. She had only gone to get her ring, she said, and told him she was the happiest she'd been in a long time. She would marry him when her divorce was final. Todd picked up the phone and proceeded to blackmail a judge into signing various papers that Todd would be sending over. They'd be able to marry right away.
Later, Blair and Todd assured Starr that they were indeed getting remarried and would be a happy, normal family. In the meantime, Blair went off to visit Kelly with her news and to ask her cousin to be her maid of honor. Kelly tried to talk Blair out of it, and they disagreed over Todd's merits. Kelly refused to be involved and let Blair ruin her life. Blair dashed off with Kelly in pursuit.
Back at Blair's, Starr told her daddy that she wanted a baby brother. Todd gave her various reasons against it. Suddenly, John and Rae showed up to talk with Starr. Though Todd attempted to stop the questioning, a very eager Starr admitted that Rae, the spiky-haired lady, was the one who had shot Max. Todd appeared as surprised as the others when she blurted it out.
Once John and Rae left, Rae pointed Todd's surprise out to John. Back inside, Starr admitted to spying on her parents. The discussion once again returned to the stork, which Starr was not buying. Blair returned and was aghast that Starr had given information to John, since she thought Todd had been behind that. With Todd, Blair tried to explain why a new baby wouldn't work. Starr refused to give up.
At the police station, Hank praised Antonio and Sophia for their collar as they discussed a series of truck hijackings and determined that R.J. was possibly behind them. They decided to work on a plan and set up a decoy, but Sophia got assigned to fill in for an absentee police officer, and Antonio was told to help Roseanne with filing. Ms. Delgado showed up with Lindsay, who had agreed not to mention Colin. Hank welcomed Bo and congratulated him on locating Melanie, who was with him. Bo and Melanie announced that they were engaged as Melanie spotted her sister nearby.

Viki returned home from a conference to a not-so-pleasant visit from Gina Russo. They had a tense conversation about Ben as Gina thumbed through Ben and Viki's wedding photos. Ben walked in on them and kissed Viki as Gina watched jealously. Gina demanded that Ben go alone with her to a warehouse where something mob-related was about to go down. She told Viki that she would definitely nail her own brother to help Ben. As Ben and Gina left, Viki apprehensively closed the door. She heard shots fired and ran outside.
Bo and Melanie announced their engagement at the police station as Lindsay and Nora looked on. Lindsay made a scene, and Melanie told her to just be happy for them. Lindsay played on Melanie's conscience by saying that Melanie wasn't keeping any secrets. Nora confronted Lindsay, telling her to back off Bo and Melanie and that she was fine with the engagement. Nora then went into Bo's office and congratulated him, as Melanie listened in. Melanie felt guilty when she heard Bo say he knew everything about her. When Nora left and Melanie walked in, Bo asked Melanie to move in with him immediately.
Meanwhile, Roseanne confessed to Antonio that she had gotten drunk and made a mistake, though she never gave him all the details. Antonio told her he still cared for her and that he would like to work everything out. He then asked for her help in nailing R.J.
Sam busted Jen for staying out all night, and she tried to lie and say she had been at Will's. However, she didn't know Will had already said he hadn't seen her. Ben introduced himself to Jen then left. Lindsay walked in, ranting about Bo and Melanie's engagement, which caused Sam and Lindsay to fight.
Jen stepped outside, and Will mediated. Nora introduced herself to Jen outside. Lindsay walked out and was very upset to see it, which caused Jen to pick up on Lindsay's guilt. Jen demanded to know what everyone was keeping from her about Lindsay. Colin appeared and said he'd tell her.
Colin walked into Jessica and Will's apartment after Jessica had just bumped into Cristian. Colin threatened Will because he was angry about Will messing with his investment. Jessica became angry and tried to throw him out. Cristian entered and removed Colin just as he was threatening to hurt Jessica. Jessica thanked Cristian for his help, saying he didn't have to do it. Cristian told her he would always be there for her.

As Ben and Gina were leaving for the meeting Gina had arranged, a car drove by, and shots were fired at them. They rushed back in the house, and Viki was upset that she had almost lost Ben again. He told her that Gina's quick reflexes had saved them, and against Viki's wishes, he went back outside to look for evidence. Gina stopped Viki when Viki tried to call the police, insisting the police would be no help in the situation.
Viki was suspicious of Gina and asked what Gina had to gain by helping Ben. Ben walked back inside and said he had found only one shell casing, and the rest had probably gone wide. He decided it meant that "they" were desperate and didn't care what else they hit. He and Gina left for their meeting, despite Viki's bad feeling about it. They ended up in a tacky hotel room, waiting for their contacts. Gina asked Ben if it reminded him of the hotel room where they'd stayed in Las Vegas, and she proceeded to take him on a trip down memory lane about when they had run away from their families.
Back at Llanfair, Todd and Blair had arrived just as Ben and Gina were leaving. Todd gave a wedding invitation to Viki and one to Gina, too, although he didn't know who she was. Blair told Viki she hoped Viki would attend the wedding and left Todd alone with Viki to talk. After Viki filled him in a little about Gina, Todd kept needling Viki. He asked if she was worried about Ben going on a "date" with his ex-girlfriend.
When Todd said that Ben was probably in a motel room with Gina at that very moment, "about to score the winning touchdown", he had gone too far, and Viki slapped him. Viki apologized, but Todd just shrugged it off. Viki told him she was worried about Todd's marriage to Blair. She didn't think it would work out any better than it had the last time. Todd didn't listen and headed off to deliver more invitations.
Colin barged his way into Sam's house and threatened to reveal what Lindsay had been hiding. Will grabbed Colin, tried to shut him, up and threw him out, but Nora and Jen wanted to hear what he had to say. Just as it seemed that he was about to reveal Lindsay's part in Nora's kidnapping, he told them that he and Lindsay had had an affair back when she had still been married to Sam. He said they had started their affair again recently.
Will refused to believe Colin and pushed him toward the door. When Colin made sure to mention that he had seen Jessica earlier, Will started to worry and rushed home. Lindsay tried to approach Jen and talk to her, but Jen believed everything that Colin had said. She said she could see in her mother's eyes that it was true. "You disgust me," Jen told Lindsay before storming out. When Nora left a few minutes later, she found Colin waiting for her. He told her to go with him. Later, in the park, Cristian found Jen sitting on a park bench.
Jessica thanked Cristian for saving her from Colin. She told him that she was worried about him and the way his life had been going lately. Cristian should be finding some way to use his talents instead of working for R.J. Cristian didn't appreciate her interference and informed her it was not her concern anymore. Will returned from Sam's house, and Jessica was a little worried about how he'd react to Cristian being there, but he seemed fine with it. He was just glad she was all right. He said he had been worried when he'd heard Colin had been there.
Max was in Skye's hotel room, trying to convince her that he believed she was innocent and asking her to team up with him to get Todd and Blair. She seemed willing to help him until he told her his plan. He was going to seduce Blair to split her and Todd up. Skye responded by hitting him in the face with the metal cover from their room service.
Todd and Blair let themselves in just at that moment, and Todd commented that it looked like a fun game. He asked if he could play. Todd and Blair said they were there to inform Max that the judge had signed his divorce papers from Blair that morning, and they delivered an invitation to their wedding. After they left, Max somehow convinced Skye that his plan was the best way for them to protect themselves from Todd and Blair.
