In Paris, Abby looked through the pictures from Lily's photo shoot and said that Lily had looked fabulous. Abby told Lily that the shoot had finished ahead of schedule and they were free to do some site seeing. Abby made some suggestions and mentioned that Lily and Cane had been married in Provence. Abby mentioned Pont Neuf and that brought back some very fond memories for her. She explained that she and Cane had walked the bridge right at sunset. She recalled that they'd had their arms around each other and she remembered how romantic it had been.

At the hotel in Paris, Cane called Devon and told him that he hadn't been able to hook up with Lily yet. He'd refused to call or text her because he didn't want to ruin the surprise. Devon suggested that Cane touch base with Abby. Cane told Devon that he had a room on the same floor as Lily. He was going to wait for her to return and surprise her. He wanted to see the look on Lily's face when she saw him. He claimed would tell her he loved her and wanted her back for good. It would be magic.

Cane had called room service and had ordered Champagne and caviar and stated he didn't care about the cost. Cane heard a noise in the hall and rushed out only to find Abby there. Abby gushed how romantic it was that Cane had come after Lily, and told him that Lily was gone because she'd wanted to catch the last flight out. Cane phoned Lily but before they were able to talk the call was dropped. Cane tried to call her again, but it went to voicemail. Cane decided to stop Lily from leaving and rushed out.

Later Abby walked out of Cane's room with a glass of Champagne and bumped into Scott. Abby was vexed and told Scott that she'd flown across the ocean to get away from him. Scott claimed that he'd flown across the ocean because he'd wanted to apologize to Abby. Abby stated that she'd be an idiot to believe him. Scott assured her it was true and he wanted to talk to her. Abby stated that if they were going to talk she needed more Champagne.

Michael rushed into Jack's office at Jabot and told Jack he had set a date for the hearing. Jack was surprised. Mike said he had enough evidence against Graham to prove Graham's marriage to Dina was as sham. He was certain the judge would grant annulment. Jack asked about Michael's strategy. Michael said that he will argue that that quickie wedding was nothing more than a stall tactic to keep Dina away from her family and to ensure Graham's status as beneficiary in her will.

Michael joyfully claimed that Dina would be home with Jack and Ashley in two days and they wouldn't have anything to fear from Graham. Jack was concerned that in forty-eight hours Graham could come up with another drastic move to protect his own interests. After Michael left, Jack received a frantic call from Dina about "John", but the call had ended abruptly and Jack grabbed his coat and rushed out.

In the Jabot reception area, Paul told Ashley that a paper bag of chemicals with Jabot labels had been found in a trash can at Chancellor Park. He asked Ashley to figure out which chemicals were missing. Ashley told Paul that only one was missing and she named it. Paul admitted he was aware of many chemical but he wasn't familiar with that particular one. Ashley explained that it was used to make perfume. Ashley and Paul were puzzled why the thief had kept that particular chemical. Paul realized it wasn't corporate espionage or some dealer who'd tried to make a score. He wondered what the thief wanted to do with it.

In Dina's suite, Graham told Dina since they were married she needed a ring, but when he tried to place the ring on Dina's finger, Dina said he was absurd and had become upset. She refused to wear it and gave it back to Graham. She claimed she was married to John Abbott. Graham corrected Dina and said that she was married to him. Dina told Graham that she shouldn't have gone through with the hearing to divorce "John". She said that "John" had been wonderful to her. She wanted to talk to "John" and asked Graham to call him to straighten things out. When Graham refused, Dina said she'd call him herself. Graham said that "John" was dead and she'd better get used to it because Graham was all Dina had.

When Dina was alone she made a frantic call to Jack and asked him to confirm that "John" wasn't dead. Jack assured her that she had nothing to worry about. Graham caught Dina, grabbed the phone and hung it up. Graham told Dina that she'd asked him to keep her away from her children because they upset her and he didn't want to see Dina upset. He said he was only doing what she'd asked him to do. He'd promised to take care of her for the rest of her life and added that he never broke his promises.

At Crimson Lights, Tessa and Noah were discussing music. When Sharon approached Noah stepped away to take a call. Sharon admitted that she'd invited Tessa to her party hoping that Tessa and Mariah would have been able to put their friendship back on track.

Devon arrived and said he needed to light a fire in Tessa. She needed to start honoring the career break he'd given her. He was worried about the money because her song hadn't done as well as he'd expected. He needed her to step up her game and said that together they had to work harder.

Devon said that Tessa's track hadn't garnered the success that his company needed to justify putting more money behind her career. Tessa remarked that she'd thought the track had taken off after she'd been arrested for stealing Nikki's gun. Devon stated that it had turned out to be a temporary spike. Devon said Tessa was an amazing talent, but they hadn't broken even on the money they'd spent producing her first few songs.

Tessa asked if Devon was dropping her. Devon said he was confident that Tessa would come up with a bonafide commercial hit and when she did, he'd hire the best producer and market the hell out of it because he believed in her. Tessa apologized for letting him down, but Devon said that they were in it together and she hadn't let him down. He pointed out that she was a new artist and he had a new record label. They were learning together but they had to be successful. He wanted her to think of it as a creative challenge.

Noah told Sharon and Mariah that he was frustrated because Tessa was scrambling to write a hit and the tension between Tessa and Mariah was palatable. He asked Mariah to tell Tessa she was doing a great job. Mariah approached Tessa and repeated what Noah had asked her to say.

Tessa said that she wanted to bridge the gap in her and Mariah's friendship, but Mariah had some terse words for Tessa and said she had some writing of her own to do. Tessa was surprised that Mariah wrote. Mariah went to the patio and began to write in her journal. A short time later, Mariah put her journal into her bag and went to get a coffee refill. At the counter, Sharon wanted to show Mariah and Noah something in the office. After they left, Tessa kept eyeing Mariah's journal. She quickly packed up her things, grabbed Mariah's journal and left.

Lily was in a taxi and headed to the airport. She asked the driver to hurry because she had a flight to catch. While in the taxi, Lily received a call from Cane, but before they could have a conversation the call was dropped.

At the airport Lily checked the flight schedules.

In another taxi, Cane frantically asked the driver to hurry because he wanted to catch up with his wife before her flight. Cane ran into the airport and called out to Lily. Lily was shocked to see him and asked how he'd known she was there. Cane said Abby had told him where to find her and that it was supposed to be a surprise. He told Lily that he'd been looking everywhere for her.

Cane said that Paris was their place. Lily claimed that that had been the reason she'd wanted to leave. Cane wanted them to create new memories in Paris, but Lily protested. Cane warned that she'd regret getting on the plane and begged her to stay.

Jack arrived at Dina's suite and told Graham he'd barge in if he had to. Graham barred Jack from entering and threatened to call the police. Dina wanted to know who was at the door. From the doorway Jack asked if Dina was okay. She was delighted to see "John." Graham barked that that was Jack, her son, not "John." Dina told Graham to stop being silly and said that Jack was just a little boy. Dina asked Graham to call room service and order coffee, but Jack asked her to pour him a glass of water instead. While Dina was at a distance, Jack reprimanded Graham for trying to confuse Dina. Graham stated he was Dina's husband and he'd deal with her as he saw fit.

Dina gave Jack his glass of water and Jack asked if Dina felt better. She confirmed she felt better because "John" was there. Dina said she'd known "John" wasn't dead. Jack addressed her as Dina and said he was happy they'd cleared things up for her. Dina didn't understand why Graham had had everything wrong. Jack said it didn't matter. Dina said all that mattered was that "John" was alright. Dina claimed she was exhausted from the events and hoped to see "John" soon. Jack promised Dina he'd return soon while he glared at Graham.

As Jack prepared to leave, Graham said he wouldn't give up, but Jack said to give it up because Graham had already lost. Graham stated that his marriage to Dina was legal. Jack countered only until a judge annulled his marriage and his medical power-of-attorney. Jack added that he'd make sure that Graham would be written out of Dina's will. Graham wanted to know what Jack had done. Jack said that Graham would find out in two days. Jack was surprised that Graham's lawyer hadn't called him. He advised Graham to save his pennies because he was going to need them and left.

At a Parisian restaurant, Abby and Scott discuss what had happened between them in the storage unit. Abby wanted him to call it sex, but Scott claimed that it had been much more than that. Scott admitted he'd tried to avoid working at Neman for Abby's sake but Victoria wouldn't allow it. He'd tried to buy Hashtag and had asked his mother to buy it, but Victoria refused to let him do that either, so he quit. He claimed that the cable news channel was still interested in him, but Abby claimed she had a better idea.

After Abby ended her call with Victor, she told Scott that Victor had agreed to sell Hashtag directly to Scott and everything Scott had built from the ground up was completely Scott's and independent of Newman. Victor had also agreed to let Scott pay for it over time. Scott asked why Abby did that for him. Abby said that she owed Scott because he'd saved her reputation after Victoria had tried to throw her under the bus over the sex ring incident.

Abby asked Scott to write stories that would bring down people like Zack. She also wanted him to relocate Hashtag to another city. Scott said Hashtag was digital so he could work from anywhere and he particularly loved London.

Abby asked Scott what he wanted to work on. He said that he'd heard about some jewel thieves that had struck London and Paris, but he was more interested in the buyers -- the rich and famous who'd pay for his stories. Scott said he'd like to go undercover to investigate the jewel thieves and joked that Abby would look perfect on his arm. Abby got up to leave. Scott said that she'd miss him. Abby retorted that she wouldn't miss him as much as he'd miss her. They said an awkward goodbye and Scott left.

Cane and Lily returned to Cane's hotel suite. Cane admitted he'd been wrong to ask Lily not to go to Paris, but he'd been desperate to keep her. Lily said their situation was stressful and complicated because of Juliet and the baby. Cane admitted he'd messed up and had lied to cover up the mess he'd made of things and had compounded the situation. Lily reminded him that he'd said that before and that the facts couldn't undo the hurt.

Cane claimed that he'd flown six thousand miles to catch up to Lily and he'd raced to the airport to try and fix things between them. Lily claimed she'd had a feeling she shouldn't get on the plane. Cane felt that that had happened for a reason. Cane wanted to fix what was broken and Lily wanted to know how he intended to do that. Cane said he still wanted her and asked if she wanted him.

Out on the balcony of Cane's suite, Lily told Cane that if they reconciled it had to be more than rekindling what they'd had. It had to be a restructure of the family. Cane agreed and said that Charlie was rooting for them. Lily stated that Mattie wasn't on board. Cane felt that she'd come around -- Mattie had him on a pedestal and gave him credit that he never deserved. He was confident that Mattie would come around.

Cane said that like a house needed a strong foundation Lily was their foundation. Lily was annoyed and felt that Cane had put everything on her. She went inside. Cane apologized and said he didn't mean to pressure her. Lily told him to stop apologizing. She said there had been a time for talking and a time when words weren't enough. She pulled Cane in for a kiss and they ended up in bed.

In Jack's office, Ashley told Jack that the thief had kept only the ingredient that made perfume. Ashley said that that ingredient, if used outside the lab, could be toxic and in the right amount it could kill. Jack stated that it obviously didn't matter if the chemical had been taken orally or injected. Ashley was about to leave when she stopped in her tracks and pointed out that Jack had mentioned injection.

Ashley told Jack that when she'd been in Dina's suite, Graham had claimed he was diabetic. Ashley said that Graham had all the equipment that a diabetic would require. Jack asked how Ashley knew that. Ashley said that Graham had brought it to her attention. Jack said that Graham had realized that he was about to lose everything. Jack and Ashley rush out of the office.

In Dina's suite, Graham filled a syringe with the chemical. Dina told him that she was more tired than she realized and wanted to take a nap. Graham suggested that she have a nice long nap.

After Dina had fallen asleep, Graham told Dina that things would only get worse for her. She'd become more confused and she'd revert to her childhood. He knew she'd hate that and it would be a sad a death for such a dynamic woman. With the syringe ready, Graham told Dina that she wouldn't feel a thing.

He kissed her forehead -- took her arm and raised her sleeve. As he was about to inject her, Dina woke up and asked him what he was doing and began to struggle. Graham ordered her to be still, but Dina continued to struggle and yelled for him to stop. Suddenly Dina and Graham looked horrified when they saw the empty syringe stuck in Graham's arm.
