Olivia is stunned when Annie told her that Caitlin has asked her
to be a bridesmaid. She told Caitlin that Annie is trying to
put a wedge between them, and Caitlin counters that there already
is a wedge between them.
When Caitlin begins to get upset, Annie interrupts with the
excuse that getting upset isn't good for the baby, and Caitlin
leaves the room.
Olivia told Annie that this is just another in a series of
attempts to steal what Olivia has for herself. She says that
Annie has always wanted what Olivia has, including the love of
both Del and Gregory. Olivia gives Annie permission to go after
Gregory, but warns Annie away from Caitlin and Sean.
When Olivia says that she can tell that Annie's trying to steal
the affection of Sean and Caitlin, Annie says that Sean and
Caitlin will automatically gravitate toward anyone who pays
attention to them.
When Caitlin returns to the room, Olivia tries to mend fences
with Caitlin, with mild to moderate success. However, after
Olivia leaves the room, Annie encourages Caitlin to carry a
grudge against Olivia. Caitlin told Annie that Olivia's not
nearly as culpable for her miscarriage as Gregory is, but she
leaves before she told Annie what Gregory did.
Mark escapes from his attacker, who follows, limping from the
wound where Tim stabbed him.
Michael, Vanessa, Amy and Sean return to the house. Michael
checks Virginia out for concussion from the knock she got on the
head trying to help Meg. Vanessa admits that Virginia's a good
person to have around during a crisis, and Virginia says that she
learned survival skills from years in South Central.
Virginia sinks into a depression about going to the island and
leaving Jimmy to fend for himself. She then asks Michael and
Vanessa to raise Jimmy if anything happens to her. Vanessa tells
Virginia that she'll be happy to help Michael raise Jimmy. After
Michael and Vanessa leave the room, we learn that this is part of
some new plan to break them up.
Sean and Amy comfort each other. Amy is feeling bad about
thinking about herself before the others, and Sean is guilt-
ridden over Elizabeth's death.
Casey and Gabi continue looking for Mark. Gabi gets increasingly
upset about Mark's whereabouts. Gabi told Casey that Mark was
the first person who ever believed in her, and Casey told Gabi
that they're all lucky that Mark chose them to be his friends.
Meg and Tim find Mark, who falls over with a hook in his back.
The killer lurks in the bushes as Meg and Tim scream for help.
As Meg screams for Casey, Mark utters his last words, which only
Tim hears, "It was Ben."
Olivia complains to Bette about Caitlin's strange choice
of a new best friend. Meanwhile, Annie eavesdrops on
Gregory as he questions his daughter about her decision
to put Bette's niece in the wedding party. Virginia
continues to play on Michael's sympathy in her latest bid
to woo the man of her dreams away from Vanessa. As a
weeping Gabi and Meg look on, Casey tries frantically to
stem the bleeding but is unable to bind Mark's massive
wounds in time. Olivia told Bette she fears Annie is trying
to poison Caitlin's mind and turn the girl against her
mother. Leaning over Mark's lifeless body, Gabi wails
hysterically while Tim repeats their friend's dying words
to Casey and a stunned Meg. Caitlin angrily informs
Gregory she will never let him control her again. An
enraged Meg accuses Tim of lying about Mark's last
words. As Gabi vows to make Grogan pay dearly for his
crimes, Casey discovers a bloody trail leading away from
the clearing back into the woods. After Vanessa awakens
from a nightmare, crying out for her mother, Virginia
wonders again what her rival's secret could be. Casey
and Gabi find Grogan with a knife in his chest and the
death mask at his side. Pointing to the wound in the dead
man's right leg, Meg reminds Tim that the injury he
himself inflicted on her attacker proves that Grogan was
the killer all along. Bette is spellbound by a familiar face
at her front door. Certain their long nightmare is finally
over, the survivors congregate in the island house to
mourn for Mark.

startled to find a strange man sleeping on Annie's sofa.
Just as Eddie prepares to give the intruder the bum's
rush, Bette arrives and introduces ex-hubby Vincent
Duke to her friends. On the island, Ben bandages his
wounded leg and practices walking without a limp so no
one will guess he's been stalking them. Meanwhile, at the
house, Casey gently explains to Gabi why they can't risk
destroying crucial evidence by bringing Mark's body
inside. Cole scans the help wanted ads and realizes he
isn't cut out for any honest labor. Vincent told Bette how
he went from multimillionaire to vagrant. Relieved to see
her fiance walk in, a weeping Meg throws herself into

grief at the news of Mark's bloody demise, Ben turns
snappish when Tim accuses him of murder. Bette
