Jared and Natalie are at Buchanan Enterprises, arguing in Natalie's office. Natalie cannot believe Jared had Jessica committed to St. Ann's. Natalie is further disgusted that Jared asked her to hire him, before revealing what he had done. Jared attempts to convince Natalie that he only called the doctor because he was convinced Tess had resurfaced. Natalie questions Jared's motives, and tells him he has no concern for Jessica's mental health. Finally, Jared admits that he knew all along that Jessica was pretending to be Tess.

Standing inside her room at St. Ann's, Jessica is making every attempt to convince Sister Teresa to allow her to find Nash. The nun informs Jessica she is not allowed to leave until she receives her release papers. As Jessica stares out into the hall, she notices Allison Perkins who approaches her. Allison smiles at Jessica and sings, "I know something you don't know and I'm not telling." As Allison continues to taunt Jessica in song, the attendant reminds her that she will be late for arts and crafts. Allison convinces the attendant to allow her a few moments with her good friend Jessica. As Sister Teresa monitors them, Allison barges into Jessica's room. Allison informs the nun that she has known Jessica ever since she was a baby. Jessica states this is a sad but true fact. Allison continues to sing about having a secret and steals Jessica's hairbrush. In an attempt to shut her up, Jessica asks Allison what is her secret. Allison tells Jessica she will only answer if Jessica sings. In song, Jessica asks Allison to tell her the secret. In an evil voice, Allison whispers in Jessica's ear, "That's for me to know and you to find out." Fed up, Jessica snatches her hairbrush from Allison and tells her there is a reason she is locked away at St. Ann's. Allison appears very demented. She taunts Jessica about also being at St. Ann's, and then begins apologizing to the nun for being bad. Allison tells Jessica, "I may be crazy, but I still know things." Jessica tells her she is not interested, and Allison tells her that it is her loss.
Viki enters Jessica's room and is horrified to find Allison there. Allison is delighted to see Viki and announces that it is now a family reunion. Looking at Viki's chest, Allison begins laughing, bouncing up and down, waving her hands and singing, "Hi, Ben." Viki stands in shock. Terrified, Viki questions Sister Teresa about allowing Allison anywhere near Jessica. When Viki refers to Allison as dangerous, Allison says that Nikki is dangerous too. She tells the nun that Nikki tried to strangle her once. When Viki tells Allison to stay away from Jessica, Allison begins shadow boxing with her. A shocked Nash walks into the room and asks what is going on. Viki informs him that the woman standing before him is Allison Perkins. Allison extends her hand to Nash and in a peculiar voice says she is an old friend of the family. Suddenly, Allison states that Viki is taking care of Ben's heart and attempts to touch Viki's chest. She begins screaming, "Ben, Dave, Ben, I miss you." Allison then grabs Viki and begins hugging her waist, causing Viki and Jessica to panic. Nash pulls Allison away from Viki, and the nun screams for help. As Allison is being carted away, she screams "Bye Ben!" and in a deranged, voice tells Jessica she knows where to find Allison if she changes her mind.
After Viki composes herself, Nash questions what just took place. When Jessica informs him she will tell him in the car, there are uncertain looks on Nash and Viki's faces. Viki informs Jessica that there is a problem with her release-St. Ann's is not allowing her to leave until she has been evaluated. Before Jessica can panic, Nash informs them both that he spoke with the doctor. St. Ann's will release her if she signs a document relieving the hospital of any liability. Stunned, Nash and Viki watch as Jessica tears the release papers. Jessica informs them that, for Bree's sake, she wants to remain at St. Ann's and be evaluated. Before leaving, Jessica wants to be assured she is fine mentally. Viki is upset with her daughter's decision and fears leaving her in the same facility as Allison Perkins. Jessica attempts to convince her mother she will be fine, but Viki is skeptical and questions the comment Allison made about Jessica changing her mind. Jessica dismisses Allison's behavior as insane, but Viki is unconvinced. Unable to change Jessica's mind, Viki tells Jessica she will inform Clint and Natalie of the situation.
After Viki leaves the room, Nash tells his wife he knows she is lying to him and demands to know what she is up to. Nash is certain Jessica's decision to remain at St. Ann's is somehow connected to Allison Perkins. Nash questions exactly who Allison is. Jessica tells him about her past with Allison and mentions that Allison told her that Clint wasn't her birth father. After hearing about Jessica's history with Allison, Nash feels Jessica should not remain in the same facility as Allison. Jessica tells Nash she has her own room and will be released after her evaluation. Sister Teresa enters and informs Nash that visiting hours are over. Nash asks Jessica to promise to stay in her room and away from Allison. Jessica kisses her husband and assures him she will be fine and will be home the next day. When Nash leaves, Jessica sits deep in thought.

Unable to get Charlie to leave, Jared picks up the phone to call security. As Charlie attempts to stop him, he notices a picture of Viki, Natalie, and Jessica on the desk. Surprised, Charlie picks up the picture. Angrily, Jared snatches the picture from Charlie. As Natalie and Viki stand outside of Natalie's office door, Natalie is disturbed by the news about Jessica.

Blair and Todd spend the night together and both are decidedly happy about it. He tells her he knows she'll be a great mom to Sam and wants her to stop thinking about Margaret. Before they can get up and go about their day, Addie bursts in, wearing an aikido outfit and carrying a tray with breakfast. Todd wonders if she's forgotten to take her medicine but she only replies, "new and improved." As he laughs uncontrollably, Blair goes off to see to the baby, and Todd's mother-in-law informs him that she wants a heart-to-heart talk.
Addie says she's sorry she wasn't aware of his dry sense of humor all this time. She wants "to forge a mature relationship" with Todd and refuses to leave until he takes care of that. He asks her to avert her eyes while he gets out of bed and gets dressed, and suggests they hold the conversation off for a few years. She wants to know how Sam will be integrated into the family. When he tries to put her off, she grabs him in a quick movement, pinning him to the wall. She threatens to hurt him if he hurts her daughter and doesn't listen to her right now. He gives in and Addie states that she wants Blair to have happiness and success. She loves Todd, as Blair does, but thinks that Blair is not the most important thing in Todd's life. Todd is quick to disagree, pointing out that when he said otherwise in the past, he was only lying. His wife and children are the most important things to him and he will make the marriage work. She warns him again as Blair returns and is informed that they were "bonding."
Downstairs, Starr attempts to make plans with both Cole and Langston who have the day off from school. Both of her friends are quick to make other excuses.

Langston mentions that she's meeting Dorian to work on wedding plans for Adriana. Starr encounters Blair in the kitchen and wonders where she was since she wasn't in her bedroom. She wants to know where she's staying in case of a future emergency. Blair announces that the marriage is no longer in name only. "Congratulations?" is all that Starr can muster. Starr says she thinks the arranged marriage was working out just fine and now things will be screwed up again. She says her parents are just too exhausting and Blair agrees, but wants to keep trying for that happiness. She's as happy as she's ever been, she informs her daughter. She vows to make it work. Starr discovers via Blair that Dorian had to run out of town for the magazine and so couldn't be making wedding plans with Langston.
Nat and Rex meet for breakfast at the diner, neither of them looking especially awake. They say that between Jess being committed and Rex learning that Wally may not have been his dad, it's debatable over whose evening was worse. Rex wants Nat's help in finding his real father and asks her to recall anything at all from their childhood. The only thing she remembers is various uncles who came and went but it's of no help to Rex. She says he should focus on his future with Adriana instead. She reluctantly agrees to help Rex, though, since he'll always be her brother and she's far too curious to not be involved. He suggests that they should look for something hidden by Roxy at the hotel. Langston and Cole, who are actually there on the sly to plan a surprise birthday party for Starr, interrupt Nat and Rex. Rex presents them with an estimate to have the doings at Ultra Violet but it's beyond their means. Langston decides to go through Adriana, as it will be a big feather in her cap if she can get Adriana to reconcile with the Mannings. They all say they feel good about Starr's party. She'll also mention it to Dorian. As she and Cole shake hands on it, Starr walks in.
John ushers Gigi and Shane into his small digs and they try to figure out where everyone will sleep until Ramsey and Marcie can be taken care of.

Shane is worried about his mom testifying at a trial for Marcie, but Gigi assures him that "Morascos don't squeal" and she will refuse to sell Marcie out. John thinks that Todd will help them. He advises Gigi to lock up after he leaves to see Todd. Later, on the prowl for food, Gigi remembers seeing a deli down the street. She tells Shane she won't be gone for very long.
At the police station, Michael tries to make a deal with Bo but he's unsuccessful. Antonio removes Marcie's handcuffs, although Fish is entirely against it and states it's not in the rules. Marcie is sure that things won't work out but Michael is insistent that a lot has happened and she's back home where everyone knows and loves her. Nora is not able to make any promises and mentions that the case is always prominent on the Sun's front page along with the news that the entire school board was forced to resign because they hired Marcie as a teacher. Nora says she feels forced to prosecute since the alternative is to recuse herself. Michael continues to be optimistic while his wife is the exact opposite. Nora and Bo watch Michael and Marcie, and decide that they each hate their jobs sometimes. Michael assures Marcie that she hasn't lost him, but she asks to be taken to her cell. Nora wants to speak to Bo who thinks it's not the time, as she shows him the coverage on the food fight in the Sun. He asks if she's "planning on keeping up this nonsense with Clint," which throws her for a loop. "Excuse me?" she responds. He rephrases it, "Are you going to keep dating Clint?" She points out that he didn't say exactly that the first time. Bo says he wants to speak to Matthew but Nora thinks that Matthew has an inkling of what's going on. Bo wants to know why and what have they been doing? She thinks there's definitely some tension showing even though Bo insists he doesn't care that Nora is dating his brother. "You're in denial," she says. He accuses her of starting the food fight and they argue over it all. It's really about them, she tells him.
Rex and Nat go through one of Roxy's boxes at the hotel. They wonder if they're still Sam's godparents. Rex doubts it. He sends Nat off to work, staying behind to continue searching.

John walks into La Boulaie where Todd thinks he could be charged with breaking and entering.
John walks into the kitchen at La Boulaie. Todd accuses him of breaking and entering. John says he's there to make a deal. Todd asks what John could possibly have that Todd wants to buy: John says, "your freedom". Todd says he shouldn't offer a potential buyer something he already has. He suggests some jobs for washed-up cops. John says he might try corrections so he can see Todd every day; Todd wonders why John sees him in that environment. John asks him which is more important: revenge on Marcie or his freedom? Todd threatens Marcie again, and John gives him a letter and tells him he might want to rethink things. There are photographs of Lee and Todd with Gigi and Shane in the envelope. Todd is unconvinced, so John pulls out the gun that Todd used to kidnap Gigi. He says with that evidence and Gigi's testimony, there is enough to bring Todd up on abduction charges. John helps himself to some coffee and cereal and tells Todd that maybe the kids will come visit him in prison. Todd suggests John go talk to Nora, that there's nothing he can do to help Marcie. John muses that Todd could call a press conference, asking for all the charges to be dropped. Todd could issue a statement thanking Marcie, and also write an editorial in the paper to turn the tide of public opinion in Marcie's favor. John gives him a choice: it's that or Statesville. Then he leaves. Later, he opens the door to Lee, who tells him they have a problem. Todd knows: the problem is Gigi.
Gigi runs into Rex, who's standing behind the desk of the Angel Square Hotel. She asks him what he's doing there, and flustered, he asks her the same thing. Gigi fills him in on recent events. Rex backpedals and welcomes her to Llanview, and she chews him up for disappearing on her years ago. Rex asks again what she's doing in his mom's place, and Gigi is surprised: she didn't know Rex had a mom. Gigi tells him she's there for Marcie. He can't believe she's still mad at him because he broke up with her in high school. Rex is starting to think she was in love with him. She accuses him of thinking that he's God's gift, and he admits that he was an arrogant jerk in high school, but he's changed. However, he brings up that she cleaned out his bank account when she sold him Marcie's engagement ring, which he had to give back. Gigi tells him "buyer beware". Rex tells her he owns Ultraviolet, and then she mentions that "we're staying with John". Rex wants to know "we who?" Gigi tries to cover her slip, and is saved by the bell as John walks into the lobby and pulls Gigi aside. He reminds her that she wasn't supposed to leave the room. He doesn't want people to know she's there. John brings Gigi and Shane back up to his apartment, and Roxy follows them. John tells her not to go into his apartment without permission any more. Meanwhile, downstairs, Rex accidentally knocks over Morris the stuffed badger (I'm guessing) that sits on the desk. He's horrified, thinking Roxy will kill him, and runs to pick it up. Stuffed inside the body of the badger is a rolled-up piece of paper. Roxy catches him with broken Morris. Back upstairs, Gigi yells at Shane. She and John both tell him not to go anywhere with strangers.
Shane is upstairs and bored in John's apartment. Lee comes to the door outside and tries to pick the lock. Shane sees the doorknob wiggle, and runs and hides. The door opens. Shane surprises Roxy in the bathroom. They cautiously introduce themselves. Shane mentions his dad, and Roxy assumes he's John's son. Shane informs her that his dad is dead. Roxy bets that Shane takes after his dad. Shane says Gigi should have been back by now. Roxy offers to take him downstairs to find his mom. They leave John's apartment, and Lee comes out of a hiding place. He's clearly seen Shane.
Nora and Bo are arguing in his office at the police station. Bo tells her that they share only two areas: law enforcement and Matthew. Nora accuses him of being stoic and says that whatever détente they had was obviously a fraud. Nora tells him he might be content to hate her for the rest of his life, but she's not content to be hated. Bo says he doesn't hate her. She asks him why he threw her infidelity in her face. Bo regrets doing that. Nora tells him he's been trying to punish her for being involved with Clint. Bo says she's the mother of his son and he'd never want to hurt her. Nora says that when Bo looks at her, he still sees her with Sam. Bo admits he can't shake the memory. He just sees the woman who disappointed him. Nora tells him she was unfaithful in order to give Bo a child. He can't believe that was her only option. Nora says he just needs to feel sorry for himself. Bo turns the tables and asks her if she would have left if he'd been the one who had the affair. He says she can only see what happened from her own point of view. Nora says they lost each other because he wouldn't give her a break. Bo tells her he values fidelity. Bo says it's a waste of time and there's nothing more to say. Nora disagrees. Nora says that sleeping with Sam was a terrible error in judgment, but she needs to know if it was so unforgivable, and if so, why? Bo has forgiven so many people for many bad things. He's forgiven Asa, and Lindsay. Nora wants to know why he didn't fight for her and for their marriage. He says he turned his back on her because he didn't have any fight left in him. Bo apologizes for his earlier remarks and says they have a good friendship, that they're comfortable with each other most of the time. He wants them to get along and wish each other well. He doesn't want to fight. Nora doesn't want to fight either, but says they still haven't dealt with the issue of Nora dating Clint. Bo says it's hard to get used to seeing her with Clint. She asks if that's why he keeps trying to sabotage the relationship. He hopes they'll be happy together. Nora thanks him, then has one request. Bo wants to talk to Matthew about everything together. Lindsay bursts in, ruining the moment. Nora leaves, but talks to herself in the hallway, telling herself she made the right decision about Bo.

Starr says she got her heart trampled because Cole and Langston both lied to her and she saw them hanging out together. Blair tries to calm her down and get the whole story. Starr didn't confront Cole and Langston, because she already knows what's going on. Blair doesn't think Cole and Langston are seeing each other behind Starr's back. She's mad about being lied to. Starr thinks it's because they both lost parents, and they can't talk to Starr about it. She feels jealous and left out. Blair comforts her, by telling her that Todd had trouble talking about his childhood, and Blair thought it was her fault. But she gave him time, and Todd was able to open up.
Langston and Cole are at the diner planning Starr's party at Ultraviolet. Langston teases Cole about not dancing. They make a plan: Langston will teach Cole how to dance.

Langston tells him the same thing happens to her, and then she takes his hand. There's an intense moment, and then they let each other go.

Clint asks her pointedly if Lindsay is the innocent party as usual. Clint says none of it will happen again. Lindsay asks why he's dating Nora as they make an unlikely couple. Clint defends his relationship with Nora, saying it just feels right. Lindsay wonders why Nora can't let go of her anger toward Lindsay.

She says Clint is being insensitive. She leaves upset.

Blair tries to calm down a howling Sam/Tommy but isn't very successful. She promises him that things will get better. Dorian and Charlie arrive home and Dorian asks about Charlie's meeting with Jared. He thinks it's too late to be a father and should just walk away. Dorian doesn't believe that Charlie should take such a major step and she's sure that Jared really cares about him. She doesn't want Charlie to surrender and would like to help him fix things. Blair comes through the kitchen where they are, looking for a cookie to help quiet the baby. Dorian voices her disapproval but Charlie quickly comes to Blair's defense. He even plays with Sam/Tommy and helps to distract him from his crying. Dorian takes Blair aside and warns her that Todd will be banished from the house if he makes any more moves like he did with Rex (holding him over the stove burner). Blair doesn't feel sorry for Rex and advises her aunt that she will leave if Todd does, since she's married to him. Dorian wonders how long the marriage will last this time. An indignant Blair grabs the baby and stalks off. Dorian praises Charlie for his handling of Sam/Tommy and pleads with him not to give up on his own son.

He again tells her that he doesn't want her help. Lee is there to see Todd and realizes that John paid a visit to Todd and threatened him. Todd tells Lee that he doesn't have a choice; he either helps Marcie or goes to jail. Lee thinks that John is just setting Todd up to go to jail anyway and that he does have a choice, since they're in it together. He can guarantee Gigi's silence by eliminating her and wants Todd to go along. They don't want her testifying for Marcie or letting it be known that they kidnapped her. He will also be able to return to the FBI. They are interrupted by Blair who wants to know why Lee is in their house. Todd claims to owe him money; she wants him paid and gone. She's angry about him firing his gun at Marcie while she held the baby. He tells her it was accidental. When she goes off, he gets back to Todd, trying to get him accept the plan of getting rid of Gigi. He'll wait awhile outside for Todd to make up his mind. When Todd gets outside, he suggests that the former FBI agent leave town. He wants him away from his family.
At the hotel, Roxy and Rex fight over the piece of paper that he found in her stuffed animal, Morris. Michael stops on his way upstairs and says that he will be cleaning out everything that belonged to Tommy/Sam and donating it to charity before Marcie gets home, if she does. He wonders how his son is doing. Rex mentions that he saw him the night that Todd manhandled him and he was doing fine. In response to Michael's reaction, he reassures him that Blair removed the baby from the room before the incident occurred. He adds that the baby will be great because of Michael and Marcie. Roxy tries to leave with Michael but Rex prevents her from doing so. He hurts her feelings when he tells her that if she doesn't divulge his real father's name, he will never see her again, that she can give up the tacky dress she bought for his wedding and she will never do Adriana's hair. He's a big boy now, he tells her, and he is after the truth. "Wally's not your father. It's Charlie Balsom," Roxy blurts out. She proceeds to tell him that he arrived home with Wally (Rex's presumed dad until now) one night, drunk, and they had a one-night stand. She knows Rex wasn't Wally's because he hadn't touched her in a very long time. She assures Rex that Charlie doesn't know about his existence. Rex is amazed and shocked. He tells Roxy how Charlie saved his life the night that Todd was trying to harm him. He's anxious to share the news with him but Roxy doesn't think it's wise. She would prefer to keep this between the two of them. Upstairs in John's apartment, Shane promises not to leave again without Gigi. John tells Gigi that he visited Todd and gave him some options (either help Marcie or go to jail) and he really enjoyed seeing him squirm. He asks if she had a problem with Rex because she should let him know if it happens again. She divulges that she not only attended school with Rex but dated him as well. Michael stops by with the dinner that John ordered, having seen the delivery boy wandering around. John tells him that his plan to help Marcie is progressing. Shane finds the dartboard that Marty had made for John before she died. It has Todd's picture as the bull's-eye.
