NEIL'S PLACE / OLIVIA'S PLACE
Lily is eating her breakfast while Dru is silently standing by thinking. Neil walks in the room and says good morning. Neil walks over to Dru and lightly touches her on her shoulder and asks her how she's doing. Uncomfortable, she responds that she's fine. The doorbell rings. It's Julia to take Lily to the park. Lily and Neil share a playful goodbye and she and Julia leave. Neil asks Dru why Julia was there to pick Lily up so early. She tells him that she wanted some time alone to talk with him before he went to work. She tells him she's leaving for Paris to work. She spoke with Sid and he told her about some assignments that have come up and she took them. Neil correctly assesses that Dru called Sid and not the other way around. Neil accuses Dru of running away because she's afraid of what's happening between them. Neil feels as though he's been played for a fool for assuming that something was happening between them. He should have remembered that her work always comes first. She tells him the only one who played him for a fool was himself. Dru tells him that what they shared was beautiful and fantastic but they never made any promises to each other. She's not leaving because she's afraid (girlfriend is SO running away), she's leaving because she loves her work and her independence and Paris is now her home. He asks her if she plans to take Lily with her. She tells him no, she promised Lily that she would spend a few days with her daddy and she's not changing her mind about that. She tells him Julia will bring Lily to Paris in a few days. Meanwhile at Olivia's, Malcolm stops by to drop off Nate's baseball glove that he left in the car. They talk a little about Nate's future baseball career and Mal prepares to leave. Olivia stops him and asks him if he's spoken with Neil lately. He tells her he has. She wonders if he knows that he and Dru made love the other night. He tells her he knows but why are they talking about it. She wonders if Neil and Dru and preparing to get back together. Mal tells her that Neil and Dru's sex life is none of their business. Why is she so concerned? She tells him that she's concerned about two people who they both love. Mal wonders if she doesn't want Neil and Dru to get back together; if she still has feelings for Neil. She assures him that she no longer has feelings for Neil. If Dru and Neil get back together, she will be the first one to congratulate them. She thinks it would be great for both of them, especially Lily. However, she knows Dru would be giving up a lot if she and Neil got back together. Mal counters that she would be gaining a lot too. Olivia admits that she was a little hard on Dru the last time they spoke and she wished she would've been more supportive. Mal tells Olivia not to lose sight of the fact that she and he are in the same situation as Neil and Dru; divorced with a child. Olivia reminds him that he divorced her and not to compare their situation to Neil and Dru's.

NINA'S PLACE / RYAN & TRICIA'S
Megan walks in the living room as Nina is drinking coffee. Nina asks her how she slept and Meg tells her not well. She thanks her for letting her stay at her place and in Phillip's room. Nina tells her its okay. Megan still doubts what Grace told her. She doesn't really know if she can trust her. Nina tells her that the only way to get the real truth is to listen to her sister's side of the story. Megan admits that Tricia has been like a mother to her since their mother died. Losing Tony was the worse thing that ever happened to her. She doesn't know if she'll be able to survive if she finds out Tricia has been lying to her the whole time. She doesn't know how she'll be able to live without her sister in her life. Ryan walks in the living room and notices that Tricia slept on the couch last night. He asks her why. She tells him that she tossed and turned all night and didn't want to disturb him. She tells him that Grace was in town to see her but Sharon got to her first. Tricia tells Ryan that she's worried Grace has turned Megan against her. After all, Megan didn't want to talk to her last night. What if the friend she stayed with was Grace? Ryan tells her not to worry. What could Grace possibly tell Megan. After all, in her heart she knows the truth. Ryan tells her that she should stop feeling guilty about what happened and not to be so hard on herself. It's time for her to come to terms with what happened. Tricia angrily tells him she knows that he means she should see a psychiatrist. She tells him that she is not sick and doesn't need a psychiatrist. She just needs to talk to her sister. She orders him to tell her where Megan is. At that very moment, the doorbell rings; its Megan. She tells Ryan that she needs to see her sister alone. There are some things they need to talk about.

Sharon tells him that today the social worker turns in his last report to the judge. Nick comments that he can finally adopt Cassie and make her an official part of the family. He suggests that they have a party to celebrate the occasion. Changing the subject, Sharon asks if he has seen Ryan around the office lately. He tells her yes, why? She wonders if he's affected by what's going on with Tricia. Nick comments how could he not be. Sharon tells Nick that Grace is in town and agreed with her that Tricia could have hit Tony on purpose and that Grace decided to tell Megan the truth. Sharon admits that she's having second thoughts. Nick asks Sharon if she thinks its right to not allow Megan to put the tragedy of Tony's death behind her. However, Nick tells her that he's sure the truth will come out without her interference.

THE PENTHOUSE VICTOR AND DIANE
Victor comes in and goes to the bar for juice. Diane comes out of her room surprised to see him. She tries to get him to tell her about his trip. Was it business? Did his secretary go with him? Victor wonders why she's so curious about his trip. He wonders if she called the plane and hung up. She lies and tells him that it wasn't her. He tells her that he was thinking about calling her. They never made any plans for their dinner. She's surprised that he was thinking about her on his "business" trip. He asks her what they should do for dinner. She tells him that she was thinking they should just have dinner at home. He asks her to cook the dish she cooked the other night, the one he liked. This thrills Diane and after Victor walks out to get dressed for dinner, she excitedly tells herself that everything is working out just like she hoped.

Too upset to go straight to work, Ryan stops at the coffee shop to think more about Tricia's situation. Tomas shows up and offers a sympathetic ear. Ryan tells him that he's really worried and that Tricia could snap at any moment. Tomas encourages him not to give up on his wife and to keep trying to get her help. In the meantime, Megan stops over to confront Tricia. Tricia asks her sister if she is going to believe the accusations Sharon and Grace have made against her. Before Megan can answer her, Keith interrupts their conversation. Megan is shocked and hurt when he suggests that her feelings for Tony were just an infatuation and that she really wasn't in love with him. When he goes even further and insinuates that everything that has happened is Megan's fault, she snaps and shows him her wedding ring and announces to her shocked father that she married Tony in the hospital before he died. Over at Newman, Victor and Neil discuss the plans to destroy Jack. When Neil asks if he is sure that revenge on Jack is worth hurting Ashley and John, Victor says that it is, but assures him that he has found a way to not let that happen. At the same time, Jill and Ashley confront Jack and suggest trying to get another loan or perhaps working with Victor instead of against him. When Jack refuses, Jill storms out leaving Ashley alone with her angry brother. Jack accuses her of beginning to shift loyalties now that she and Victor have become romantically involved again. Ashley denies the accusation and reminds him that Jabot and their father mean as much to her as they do to him. Back at the ranch, Nicholas and Sharon pay Victoria a visit and ask her how her relationship with Gary is progressing. Victoria tells them that things are going well and that she has high hopes of it working out. When they leave, Victoria calls Gary and invites him over for lunch. Caught in the midst of another breakdown, Gary, fighting off Gabriel's voice in his head, tries to decline. When Victoria won't take no for an answer, Gary finally agrees. In the meantime, a reconciled Paul and Chris discuss the stalker case. Paul tells his wife that he now suspects one of Ross' close acquaintances of being the culprit. He begins to wonder about Gary when he finds out that he and Ross both dated two girls in their office. Finally, Dru tries to explain why she is going back to Paris to Olivia.
