NIKKI tells Victor that Sharon has not been unfaithful to their son. Sharon spends most of her time at the ranch and Nikki knows for certain that she is not having men out there. Who is she going to have an affair with? Miguel? Well, something is going on; what is she hiding from everyone if she isn't having an affair? It has to be another reason, Nikki insists. She reminds Victor of how she was when she was pregnant with Victoria; she was so moody---up one minute and down the next. Suddenly, the two look at each other and they both come up with the same question. Could Sharon be pregnant? If so, it could be the answer, especially since everyone knows that Nicholas doesn't want another child!
SHARON visits Paul again and tells him that she has decided to let him handle that little matter that they spoke of earlier. She just came from Grace's office and she is more convinced than ever that she is going to do something rash with her "property."
The private investigator, Dave, arrives and Sharon gives him a picture of Grace. Dave thinks that Sharon suspects Grace of fooling around with her husband, but Sharon is quickly set him straight. Nick wouldn't do something like that. She only wants to be sure that this woman doesn't leave town; she wants to know immediately if it even looks like Grace is leaving. After Sharon leaves, Paul says that he knows her and she is really upset about something. Maybe they will be able to figure out what is going on after they have followed Grace for a while.
NICK tells Grace that he needs to talk to her. He closes the office door before he begins.
"I feel that you need to make a few changes where Cassie is concerned. She has been spending too much time out at the ranch. I know you are having problems, but you are relying on Sharon too much."
"I have not asked Sharon for a thing!" cries Grace. "I suggest that if you don't want Cassie out at the ranch, you talk to your wife. Keep me out of this!"
Nick doesn't know where this is coming from. He tries to get Grace to confide in him, but she refuses; nobody understands what is going through my mind, she tells him. "But," she tells him, "I can see that you really care about me. You are the only person who has offered me any support through all of this, and it means so much to me." She puts her arms around him and leans against his shoulder.
Nick tells her that he will always be on her side. He then invites her to go out for some coffee with him. Then after she is relaxed, if she feels the need, she can talk to him.
NEIL and Dru feel that they have worked out the immediate problems in their marriage. They both agree that honesty is the most important thing they can do for each other. Dru gives her word that from now on, she will be honest with him---and her word does mean something! She will prove that to him.
She goes to the phone and calls Olivia. She wants them to come up; she and Neil have something to talk to them about.
In their apartment, Olivia tells Malcolm that things sound bad. Sometimes things happen and love cannot survive. She sees a world of difference in those two people up there.
Back in Dru's apartment, Neil tells Dru that she really laid it on thick. As the doorbell rings, Dru tells him to play along and look grim.
Katherine visits Danny. She tells him that now that he is free of Phyllis, he should go after Christine. When he tells her that he is taking the "wait-and-see" approach as far as Chris is concerned, she tells him that he can't just sit around and wait for things to happen. He admits that he still loves Christine and he is sure she is still in love with him, but what can he do? Katherine tells him that the marriage with Paul is doomed to fail if Chris is still in love with Danny. So go after her before it is too late, she strongly advises.
MARY arrives at Paul's office looking for Christine. Lynn informs her that Paul is out, but Christine is in his office. Going into the office, Mary and Chris exchange a few pleasant words. Suddenly, Mary asks Christine when she is going to get pregnant. "What are you afraid of, childbirth? It can't be your career. There is no reason you can't be a lawyer and a mother too."
Chris is completely incensed that Mary would interfere with her marriage like this. She tells her in no uncertain terms that it is none of her business.
Mary tells Christine that she is worried about Danny. How much of the problem involves her ex-husband? Are her feelings for Danny the reason she won't commit to a baby with Paul?
"Are you implying that I'm not sure if my future is with Paul or Danny?" Christine asks.
"I never would have put it the way you just did," Mary concedes, "but, now that you mention it, that is what I am asking."
Just then, Paul arrives in the office. Neither of the women will talk to him about what is going on.
VICTOR arrives at Sharon's door just as she is leaving to pick up Noah. He thinks it is important that they talk. He tries to get her to open up to him, but she wants to handle her problem on her own. To her amazement, he suggests that she see a therapist. It's just a little problem, she insists. One that she is hoping will not go on for much longer. He then asks her if she is pregnant. If so, he will talk to his son and help him accept the situation. When she assures him that she isn't pregnant, he wonders if her feelings have lessened for Nicholas. Sharon promises him that her feelings for his son are the same. She loves him as much or more as she ever has.
ONCE Olivia and Malcolm are in the room, Dru begins to tell them, very slowly, that after talking for a while, she and Neil have decided that they need to give their marriage one last try. Immediately, Olivia goes to Dru and says she is sorry, but Malcolm has heard correctly and he is elated. There are hugs all around.
Amid all the joy, the babysitter comes home with Lily. She is happy to see her daddy, but wants him to play with him a while before he leaves. Picking her up in his arms, Neil informs her that he is not going anywhere.
"I missed you so much, Daddy," Lily tells him.
"I missed you too, Baby," Neil says, as he puts his arm around Dru. "I got my girls back!" he adds.
