Ryan was out of surgery and his vital signs had stabilized. Olivia refused to comment on his prognosis, though. Nikki and Victor thanked him for saving their daughter. Neil joked around with him about Super Bowl tickets then promised to take care of Victoria for him if anything happened. The two close friends cried together while trying not to say goodbye. Neil left Ryan's room as Victoria entered. He ran into Olivia and told her that he had better not join the others because he would probably break down in front of them.
Steve and Traci confronted Colleen about skipping out of dance class and lying to them about it for so long. Colleen tried to turn things around and accuse Steve of lying worse than she had, then he noticed that her eyes were red and her pupils were dilated -- she must have been smoking pot! Colleen couldn't deny it for long after her mother threatened to have a urine test to find out for sure. She insisted that it was one time and she was all alone. Traci began her punishment by grounding her indefinitely.
Billy and Mac showed up at the shelter to help with Thanksgiving dinner. The helpers didn't have any work for them, so Mac wanted to ask Ned about the woman who helped Colleen. Amanda had just told him that she was leaving town the next day -- she could not risk her husband finding her in Genoa City. Ned told Mac that it was a complicated situation and wouldn't promise anything. They went back to see if they could help and started serving on the food line. In the meantime, Ned told Amanda what Mac was asking about. When Billy and Mac began serving dinner, Amanda was their first customer!
The D.A. asked Tricia to tell her version of the wedding incident. She said that it was a lovely ceremony. ""The church was beautiful -- isn't that what everyone said? If they didn't, it was because they weren't at the altar with Ryan and me. A bride has a right to be nervous and doesn't always remember every detail. They say I threatened them? Oh, that! I didn't want to use it, but it was the only way to get Ryan's attention. I made a mistake, but I didn't start it. The Newmans did! Yes, I framed Victor and drugged him -- it worked too! No, he didn't assault me, but I had to do something. Now I want to let bygones by bygones. Ryan and I are happily married. May husband wants that too."" With that, the D.A. arranged to have some men from the psychiatric ward take her away. John Silva and Paul Williams asked about her possible release anytime soon. They were assured that it would be a long time until she even had the chance to go free. When they told Tricia about the men, she was pleased, thinking that it was part of Ryan's surprise for their honeymoon. She took the man's arm and held her head high as she left the holding room still wearing her wedding dress. . . .
