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.
