Antonio is called away on police business and leaves Jessica behind with Nash. After getting into another argument, Jessica throws some old wine glasses at Nash in front of astonished customers.

Vincent and Aaron hosted a press conference in Angel Square, where they blasted the police force and said that Cristian was guilty of burning down his buildings. Natalie was furious.
Cristian complained to Evangeline about being stuck on the project he was trying to complete. She was supportive and tried to give him some ideas. She then read about the second fire in the paper. Vangie wanted to call Bo, but Cristian didn't want to get involved. Natalie soon came by and told them to go to Angel Square immediately. They did and Vangie defended Cris to the media. Bo arrived and Aaron accused the police of protecting Cristian. Later at the loft, Vangie recalled finding Cris's turpentine-soaked rags.
Marty stopped by John's and told him that now she's sure that Spencer wasn't fit to be on trial. John argued that Truman knew exactly what he's doing; she stated that Spence is insane. Marty admitted that she was basically saying, "I told you so." John noted that Marty was more stressed about having been taken hostage by Spencer than she was letting on. "I'm holding it together just fine," she snapped, but John thought she was about to lose it. Marty freaked out when he said she's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Natalie later returned and reamed out Marty about her role in Spencer being free. Marty left. John scolded Nat for her behavior.... Marty went to the hospital to check on Spencer's condition.
At the hospital, Dorian, Todd and Starr and Viki nervously paced as they awaited news on Blair. Michael joined them and reported that her condition is stabilizing. The family was thrilled, but Michael warned them that she still has a long way to go. Privately, Todd asked Michael if Blair is going to be a vegetable. Michael advised him to talk to her so she could be encouraged to regain consciousness. After, Todd told the family that he's going to get Blair a surprise. Soon, Addie arrived and went to sit with Blair. "It's not time for you to go to Heaven," Addie firmly, but sadly stated. "Mamas are supposed to go to Heaven first ... please don't die and leave us all alone." Todd then joined her and told Blair that he needs her. Sure enough, she opened her eyes. "You talk too much," she whispered.
Nat and Jess stop at the hospital to visit Blair. Nat mentions what a terrible patient John is but she still loves him. The honeymoon with Antonio is over, Jess tells her sister. It was great but back to reality basically and all that goes with it. She's frustrated with Nash, who is a pain in the ass. Natalie is astonished to learn that he is now the manager of Capricorn and figures it's merely just so he can get on Jess' nerves. She also is bitter to learn that Jess is taking advice from Marty and mentions that even John has forgiven Marty for her deeds involving Spencer. Marty is a friend of hers, Jess announces, and has been through a lot. Starr and Jack spend time with their mom, but she urges them to not miss any more school. Marcie is there and agrees to get them each to class. Todd goes to see Spencer, escorted by an armed guard. Congrats on your self inflicted gunshot wound, he tells the patient, but he knows it's just to buy time. Spencer thinks Todd is there to kill him until he sees the guard. He actually wants to share some wonderful news, Todd advises him. Blair is awake, alert and recovering. He knows Spencer still loves her but he's going to propose and he and Blair will be married. Spencer is actually speechless. It's over for you, Todd continues. You will lose everything. Once Todd leaves, Spencer screams for his lawyer.
Rex prepares a death certificate for Todd's baby so that Tommy can just stay where he is. Adriana thinks it's cruel but Rex is convinced that Todd has his life now with Blair and is not alone. They both think it's for the best but then on the other hand they both start to waver. Obviously, both of them are torn between deciding what to do and what is really right. Rex figures that Todd will stop looking for the baby if he is convinced that he's dead. He has a long complex story prepared, mostly the truth, except for the ending. They worry about Spencer though, in case he's around to divulge the truth. Nah, once he's in Wingdale, they'll be in the clear, Rex figures. He plans on telling Todd immediately and leaves for the hospital. Layla stops by, prepared to work but it's obvious that Adriana has something bothering her. She tries to explain without really saying anything. Rex will do the right thing, Layla insists.
Once at school, Starr has the opportunity to chat with Cole when she "drops" her book on the floor and he rushes over to help her. He's really happy to hear the news about her mom. Marcie is nearby and overhears Brittany plotting to steal Cole from Starr, even though she really doesn't want him herself. The girl throws her arms around Cole and extends her good wishes regarding his mom. Oh, same for you, she tells Starr when she hears the news about Blair. Marcie sends everyone off to class, but not before Starr and Cole exchange several intimate looks. She pulls Starr aside. She should not be seeing Cole because both of her parents and Cole's mom are against it. Whether she agrees or not, she's the teacher and must side with them and do what's best. They're just friends and everything is cool, Starr assures her.
As Spencer mutters that it'll never be over, his attorney arrives. Everything is in his favor and will be tied up in court, Spencer hears. He doesn't care about any of it. Instead, he's summoned his attorney to have him draw up a power of attorney and a document that turns over all of Spencer's estate to him. He's insane after all, Mark tells him. Spencer insists it's not a ploy but the lawyer thinks he's up to something. Later, he imagines Blair in his room. She will never leave him, she purrs. She loves him. He asks her to marry him.
Todd visits Blair but won't let her talk. They have fewer fights if she's quiet or unconscious, he jokes. She came back for him, Blair says. He will never leave her, she's the best part of him and could never let her go. She's his one constant. Presenting a ring, he asks her to marry him. Again.
While Antonio and Nash cheer each other on at the gym, they give each other advice on their businesses. They also discuss Jessica and the fact that she and Nash aren't getting along. Nash professes that he will never be stuck anywhere with her again and is annoyed when Antonio says that Jess will learn to be patient with him. That makes it sound like he did something, which he didn't, says an irritated Nash. He really doesn't want to deal with Jess at all, Nash states. And he doesn't want to be judged. Antonio is wondering if Nash sees Tess in her and is just upset that he can't get to her. They take their act to the steam room, all the while Antonio urging Nash to just get along with Jess. He leaves the room first, needing to tend to work. Nat and Jess arrive early for massages, but they learn that Antonio is in the steam room. Jess plots to show up for some "heat." Nat laughs that she can picture Tess sneaking in but not Jess, and dares her to go for it. Jess shows up and drops her towel, thinking that the man under the towel is Antonio.
Jessica was surprised when she went to greet Antonio in the steam room and it turned out to be a naked Nash. He teased her, but she wouldn't have it. "I hate you!" she finally screamed as he badgered her. He informed her that she's staying there with him for as long as it takes for her to stop hating him. Jess amended that she doesn't hate him and does in fact, have feelings for him.
Bo watched the tape of Aaron and Vincent's press conference, where they spoke out against the police force. Bo lectured the cops that the subsequent overload of calls coming in slowed down their response time. Antonio and Evangeline worried about Cristian, but Bo urged them to step aside in order to let the bad press settle. Meantime, Cris argued with Talia in his loft. He then came down to the station and learned that his brother and girlfriend are off the case, due to the conflict of interest. He was prepared to fight back, but they told him to keep his cool. Vangie privately worried that Cris really was guilty for starting the fires. Later, Cris was furious when his loft was searched. Talia found blueprints of Vincent's burned down buildings.
Paige and Lindsay chatted as they dined at the Palace. Paige patiently listened to Lindsay vent when Lindsay mentioned that she broke up with R.J. Bo interrupted them and was concerned when Paige filled him in on Lindsay's troubles. Lindsay sadly called her gallery phone and changed the message which had included both her and R.J.'s names. Bo was happy when Paige said she wanted to be Lindsay's friend, but warned her that Linds can be "high maintenance." When Paige was suddenly called to the hospital, she suggested Bo join Lindsay instead.
After Todd proposed to Blair, she examined the ring and remarked that it was the same one he gave her before. "I want to get it right this time," he stated. "I can't," Blair told him. Todd assumed it was too soon. Blair was upset that he already told Starr he was planning to propose and explained that they're over for good. Todd thought things could be different between them, but she believed that they're miserable together. "I dare you to tell me you don't love me," he challenged. He then stated that the kids would be better with them together, but Blair argued that they'll also be happier if she and Todd are apart.
At the hospital, Rex continued to wheedle the guard into letting him into Spencer's room. In his room, Spencer continued to "speak" with Blair, who he imagined was in the room with him. Rex managed to get in and found Truman talking to himself. Balsom revealed that he wants to destroy any hope Todd has of finding his son. Spencer imagined Blair telling him that she'll never forgive Todd for making her lose her baby. In real life, Rex asked Spencer if he can help him get proof that Todd's baby with Margaret is dead. Spencer agreed to do it. Rex was perturbed when Truman mentioned "Tommy."
