The show begins with a repeat of Friday's show at the workplace of Larry Warton. To recap, our village idiot Ross has totally gone against Victoria's wishes and brought the police to arrest Warton. Victoria and Paul Williams arrive to find Warton under fire from Ross. When Warton sees Victoria, he gets really upset and thinks that this is all her fault. She tries to tell him that she has nothing to do with this. She turns to Ross and very hotly tells him to get the hell out of there or she will have her bodyguard throw him out. Ross sheepishly turns to go and on his way to the door, Paul asks Warton if the jacket draped over a chair is his. Warton says yes and grabs for the jacket. Guess what? A letter falls out of his jacket that looks exactly like the letters Victoria has been receiving from her "greatest fan." Ross gets everyone going about getting the letter. (Me thinks he is too anxious ... perhaps he planted a copycat letter?) Paul uses one of his detective devices to pick up the letter without leaving fingerprints. Warton says the letter is not his and he doesn't know where it came from.
Over at Christine's law office we find Michael Baldwin trying to talk Christine into coming to work with him at Desmond Industries. She reminds him that Corporate Law is not his bag, nor is it hers. He says that you can never tell what might pop up in Corporate Law. He tells her that if the deal goes through, he will have a lot of clout with Desmond and "they" will be able to pick and choose what cases they take to court. Christine says, "us? I don't think so!"
Ashley is still sitting at the table where she and Christian had their meeting. Christian comes back and they say their final good-byes with a passionate kiss, and wouldn't you know it, Victor is lurking in the background taking it all in.
John Abbott comes home from the office to find the telephone ringing. He answers it and it is a nurse from Dr. Hanker's office asking if she is speaking to Mr. Abbott. He says yes and she promptly tells him that his test results are back and that they are negative. He obviously has no idea what she is talking about and is very confused when he hangs up the phone. Jack comes in chomping on an apple and John questions him about it. Jack says there is nothing to worry about if the results are negative. John demands to know what the problem is because he knows that Dr. Hanker is an Oncologist. Jack finally tells him that it was a test for testicular cancer. John is quite upset that Jack did not come to him for support. He tells Jack that as long as he is living in his house, there will be no more secrets.
Ryan comes knocking on Nina's door to ask her to keep Phillip's schedule open for the next couple of weeks. Nina asks him how things are going at home and he says things are great. He tells her that he and Tricia are thinking of going skiing one weekend soon.
Meanwhile over at Ryan and Tricia's apartment, Meg is asking Tricia what she means by not being able to handle going away with Ryan. Tricia tries to tell Meg that it's not a good time to talk about it. Meg tells her that she has to talk this out. She can't keep it inside. Tricia admits to her that she is living a charade in the bedroom with Ryan and she doesn't know how long she can keep it up. Sharon comes into Nick's Office all gussied up for a dinner date with her husband. She says she's sorry that she's late and that she called the restaurant to change the reservation. She tells Nick that after he left the ranch that she and Nikki had a talk and she told Nikki about who ordered the flowers. She said Nikki was quite upset. Nick says his mom shouldn't blame her. Sharon says Nikki didn't blame her, but she could see how much it hurt her. Nick tells Sharon that it was his father that hurt Nikki, not Sharon. He says they seem to always be worried about his parents lately and they should concentrate more on what's important to them. She asks if that means the chain of coffeehouses that he wants to open. He says yes and that he wants to talk to her about that. He asks if they should franchise them because they could move ahead more quickly that way. She mentions that if they did that, then someone else would be in control.
Victor approaches Ashley's table. She invites him to sit down and asks with a smirk on her face why he's not in a hurry to get home to Diane. He tells her that he will spend as little time as possible at the penthouse until it is his again. He makes no bones about not wanting to talk about Diane Jenkins. She asks how his family is and he tells her that he and the children are not as compatible as they once were.
Paul Williams opens the letter. Warton says he never saw it before and doesn't know how it got in his jacket. He tells the police that this whole thing is about them (the Newmans) trying to pin the stalking on him. The police ask Paul about it and he explains the whole situation. He reads this letter aloud and it says that the "fan" will do anything to make Victoria see his love. Warton cries set up. The police put handcuffs on Warton and take him down to the police station. Paul tells Victoria that he will handle it from here, but Victoria says she is going to call Nick and they will meet him at the Station.
Baldwin is still trying to convince Christine that Corporate Law is a stepping stone to bigger and better things. She tells him that she has no intention of going into business with him. He reminds her of how she felt at the conference in Hawaii and hob-knobbing with all the power players. He says that once you have a taste of power, you never forget it.
Nina asks Ryan if things are getting better for them in the bedroom. Ryan says everything is back to normal and it's great. She asks if he got Tricia to see a psychiatrist and he says she doesn't need one. Nine tells him that he's wrong. She says that Tricia has had a lot of problems lately, mainly with Meg and Tony. Ryan reminds her that Tony is dead. Nina reminds him that Tricia killed Tony and that is not something you just deal with and forget, especially if you are having emotional problems to begin with. She tells Ryan that Tricia still needs help. He gets upset with her and leaves. He is in just as much denial as Tricia!
Nick agrees with Sharon that he likes to have control and she tells him that whether he likes it or not, he is his father's son. She tells him that setting up a chain of coffeehouses is going to take up a significant amount of his time and energy and wonders what that will do to his responsibilities at Newman Enterprises. The telephone rings and it is Victoria. Nick tells his sister that he will meet her at the police station right away.
Tricia is telling Meg that her sex life will never be the same as it was. Meg asks if they are having trouble in that department and Tricia says that it's only her with the problems. Meg asks her if she's faking it and Tricia admits that she is. Meg asks her what happened to change everything ... was it the miscarriage? Tricia nods that it was. Meg tells her that she has to talk to Ryan about it and that she believes that it will all get better. Tricia asks, "what if it doesn't?" Meg tells her that then she has to reach out and contact a doctor. Tricia doesn't like what she's hearing.
At the police station Paul is talking to his friend Craig, the captain, about the situation and the letter. Ross butts in saying the letter is exactly like the others. Paul tells him to be quiet. Paul tell Craig all about the other letters and Craig asks why they hadn't come to him before. Paul says they were waiting for something more substantive before calling him into the case. Victoria arrives and Paul says he is going to pick up the other letters. Ross butts in again and tells Craig that Warton is on parole. Craig says that is not relevant in this case and Ross shouts back that Warton tried to kill Nick in prison. Paul shuts him up again and Craig goes to talk to Warton. Nick comes in and Victoria rushes into his arms.
Ashley is sorry to hear that Victor and the children are at odds. Victor tells her that he is worried that Nick is too preoccupied with his coffeehouse and that he doesn't spend all of his energies on the company. She asks if he has told Nick how he feels and he says that he has, but Nick has his heels dug in and won't listen. She tells Victor that Nick sounds a lot like his dad. She asks about Victoria and he tells her that Victoria is a hand full. He says Victoria thinks she knows more than her father does. Ashley tells him that it will all work out. He then wants to talk about Ashley. She asks if he is trying to get inside information for Brash & Sassy. He says no. She asks if he wants to know about her personal life. He tells her that he saw her earlier with a gentleman. She tells him that was Christian and he is just a friend. He asks if he is a "close" friend.
Paul asks Nick why he is there. Nick says he is there for his sister. Paul says that he can handle it from here and that they don't need to be here. Nick and Victoria say that they are not leaving. Paul says there is no need for them all to be here and if they aren't leaving then he will. He is a little miffed at the way they always second-guess him. Nick asks Victoria what happened and she and Ross tell him. Nick tells Ross that he's a good man and thanks him for his help.
Tricia says there is no way she's going to a doctor and that she can't talk to Ryan about it. She makes Meg promise not to say anything to Ryan. Ryan comes home and Tricia wipes her tears before he can see them. Meg says she was just going to lie down. Ryan comes over and gathers Tricia into his arms and kisses her. Tricia fakes the return and Meg is peeking around the corner at them.
At the police station, Craig comes out and tells them that Warton will be held a while longer. Nick asks if they have been in touch with Warton's parole officer and Craig tells him that he is out of town. Warton comes back into the room yelling that he is being set up. He sees Nick and makes a lunge at him. The cops cart him off. Victoria cries on her brother's shoulder. Ross is standing off to the side leering at Victoria.
Paul arrives at Christine's office and tells her what has happened that day. He says he is upset with Victoria and Nick. He thinks they feel that they are in a position of power and they make everything worse. He says that power can change a person. He suggests they go out to dinner and Christine agrees.
Back at Gina's, Ashley tells Victor that she and Christian are geographically incompatible. She changes the subject and warns him about Diane. Victor tells her that Diane does not pose a problem for him. Then he looks into her eyes and tells her how good it is to be with her and that he would like to spend more time with her. He tells her that he cares for her far more than she could know. They gaze deep into each other's eyes ... as the credits roll.

Nicholas and Victor are still talking. Victor wants to know why Nick didn't tell him about Vicki's stalker when she first started receiving the letters. Nick tells Victor that they didn't know where he was to tell him. Victor says he's been home for a month. He tells Nick it was irresponsible on his part not to tell him. He could have jeopardized his sister's safety. Nick tells Victor that they didn't tell him because he would have come in and done things his own way but sometimes his way isn't always right. They didn't tell him because they didn't want his constant interference in their lives. Victor tells Nick that the real reason why he didn't tell him was because he wanted to prove to his father that he can go at it alone. Nick just looks at Victor and walks out.

Billy apologizes to Jill for getting so upset earlier. He knows that he should not have done what he did. Jill tells Billy that if he wants to get anywhere with his father he's going to have to show some respect. Billy says he doesn't want to talk about it. He knows he has some issues with his father; he'll work them out later. Billy wants to know if the invitation is still open for him to go to Mac's sweet 16 party. He knows he said no earlier but since his Aspen trip got taken away, it's the only game in town. Jill asks Billy why he's so interested in going to the party when he wasn't before. Is there some reason why he changed his mind?

Malcolm wants to know what his chances are. John asks Mal if he filed a police report at Olivia's request and did she push it and also if he said that Callie and his son were in danger. Mal says yes. John tells Mal that he will do everything that he can to fight for him but because Olivia is the natural parent and Mal never adopted Nate, their case will be hard to win. Mal realizes that Olivia wanted him to file a police report not to protect Nate but to help her build her case against him. John agrees and asks him if there is anyway he can talk to Olivia and work it out and not go to court. Mal says he wishes he could talk to Olivia but she won't listen to him.

Ryan suggests that they call Malcolm and set something up. Gary intervenes and says that it's not a good idea. It would be the fourth change, which would be too confusing to the consumer.

He tells Mac and Kay he found a dress from a vintage store when he was in town earlier and asks Mac to open it. Mac opens the box and says she loves the dress and leaves go try it on. Kay comments to Brock that she would have never picked that dress out for Mac to wear. Brock hopes that it fits.
Neal tells Olivia that he thought that since Callie was gone that everything would be okay. Olivia comments that this isn't about Callie. It's about the fact that Malcolm has proven over and over again that his judgment can't be trusted. Neal tells Olivia that he doesn't agree with her decision, that she should keep the lines of communication open and talk to Malcolm. Olivia says that she's not going to be talked out of her decision. She should have never given Malcolm rights in the first place. Her gut told her not to and she got talked out of her decision and it almost cost her, her son. She tells Neal that she and Nate will get along with or without him. Malcolm calls and asks Olivia if they can talk. She says no and hangs up on him.
Nick walks in and Sharon asks him what he thinks about the decorations. Distracted, he tells her they look great. She asks him what's wrong and he tells her his father. She asks what happened and he tells her that Victor came down on him about the way he treated things with Vicki's stalker. Sharon can't believe that after everything Nick has done.

Nick asks Sharon what she thinks about Milwaukee being the place to open up a new Crimson Lights.

She leaves but turns to come back but stops when she overhears Kay ask Brock how he knew the dress would be perfect for Mac. Brock says that when he saw it, it reminded him of Mackenzie's mother.
Jill tells John she is not trying to undermine his relationship with Billy. She thinks John is being to rigid and should temper it with a child Billy's age since his mind is still forming. John says he is just trying to show Billy there are consequences to his actions. Billy is only upset because he can't get what he wants. He's trying to teach him that before he becomes an adult. Jill says she doesn't want to see him make the same mistake she made with her son Phillip by alienating their son. It would kill her if the same thing happened to Billy that happened to Phillip. John agrees to let Billy go to the party but only on one condition.
Victoria agrees that Gary has a point. Ryan does say that the conservative campaign has been working. Victoria suggests they call Malcolm and set up another photo shoot and then compare both and then make a decision. Everyone agrees. Ross and Gary leave.

Neal asks Olivia why she hung up on Malcolm. Olivia says that she doesn't want to talk about it. She is not changing her mind. She has to take control and protect her son. She says she never knows from one day to the next what Malcolm is up to. She wants to make sure that there is not another error in judgment that Nate has to pay for. She's not trying to keep Malcolm from Nate but she's not really sure if Callie, Trey and Sam are really out of Malcolm's life. She comments that Malcolm wasn't the best person when he first came to town and comments that Malcolm's past may come back to haunt him again just like Callie. Neal tells her she's not being fair because she knows that Malcolm has changed. She says it doesn't matter. She has to do what ever it takes to keep her son safe.
Malcolm is sitting quietly thinking. He gets up and walks across the room as he hears someone come in. He starts to say, as he turns around, that he's not open, but it's Drucilla. Drucilla says, "I'm back. Are you surprised?"
