Max works to convince Nikki to stay a little bit longer. No luck, Nikki is ready to leave. She senses that Max has another agenda and is trying to keep her for some reason other than her company. He keeps watching his television screen hoping to show Nikki that Victor is betraying her with Lorie, but the feed from Lorie's room never comes on.
Meanwhile, Lorie is discussing the past with Victor, trying to convince him that their love may not be completely lost. Victor assures her that he loves and is marrying Nikki, and as far as his past with Ms. Brooks is concerned, one of the things their relationship taught him was that some things are not meant to be.
Lorie seems to be truly moved by Victor's apology and his sweet remembrance of their union, she can not bring herself to turn on the camera. As she tearily hugs Victor and tells him that he should leave, Max barges in with Nikki in tow. Nikki enters just in time to see Victor release his former fiancée from an embrace.
Brad stops by Olivia's office. Olivia updates him on the good news regarding Neil being in rehab. She also shares the news about Lily and Dru being back in Genoa City. She tells him about getting robbed by Juice, and how worried she is about the effect that Neil's situation may have on her niece. Both Olivia and Brad agree that parenting is a very challenging task, and Brad reassures Olivia that she has done a terrific job raising Nate. In light of everything that has been going on lately, Olivia does see one silver lining in the situation-Olivia: "the situation has allowed you and I to become closer friends." Brad couldn't agree more, "it's a two way street." He notes that Olivia has been a life-line to him given all that he is dealing with in regards to Ashley's illness. The friends share a hug.
At the rehab center. Dru watches through the door as Neil talks to Serena. Serena makes it clear that she cares about Neil and once he is sober she would like to be a part of his life. Neil cares for Serena, too... but tells her that he needs to work on himself before he can make any promises to her. Serena is sure he will beat his drinking problem, she asks if she can come back to visit him, when he doesn't answer, she tells him that she will just wait to hear from him.
As Serena leaves Neil's room she runs into Drucilla. The women exchange "what are you doing here?" attitude. It's a brief exchange, but one thing is clear-this won't be a loving friendship. Serena leaves.
Dru enters Neil's room, immediately stating that he "looks like hell." Neil notifies his ex-wife that she can leave if all she came to do was rag on him. In true Drucilla fashion, she tells it like it is-she lets him know that it rocks her to see him so low, he is not at all who she thought he was. When Neil asks what's going on with Lily, Dru supplies that Lily is fine "and even if she wasn't you are in no position to deal with it." Neil confesses that the one thing that struck him in all of this was the hurt and anger that he saw in Lily's eyes. Neil: "It cut through my heart like a knife." Dru concedes that the road to recovery will not be easy for Neil, he's going to have to do a lot of work with his therapists to get through this. Neil supplies that the one thing that would make this easier for him, is if Dru and Lily could stay for a while. Dru says she can't promise anything, but she will think about it.
Meanwhile, Lily has called Wesley, begging him to please come to Genoa City and convince Dru to let her come back to Paris. She shares that she hates it in that small little hick town and that she can't wait to leave. Wesley tells her not to be such a snob and to give it a chance. Lily doesn't want to give it a chance, especially given the state that they found her father in "he's a drunk." Lily hates all things Genoa City. Wesley is confident that Dru has the situation under control and tries to reason with the teen, stating that she'll be fine. Again, Lily begs him to come to the rescue. Wes gently supplies that, whether Lily knows it or not, the communication between he and Dru has not been very good lately. Lily feigns surprise and says "that's odd, because she talks about you all the time." Lily says that Dru is constantly saying wonderful things about Wes, and that "she goes on and on all the time about how much she misses him." Finally, when all of Lily's pleading seems to have fallen on deaf ears, an angry Lily hangs up the phone on Wes.
Later, Wes studies a picture of Dru and Lily. He picks up the phone and makes a reservation for a flight to Genoa City.
At the hospital Brittany's parents find her having a cup of coffee in the cafeteria. They have found a lawyer who's specialty is D.U.I.'s and they are pretty sure he can get Brit off, and she will have a clean slate and be off to college as planned. Brittany is not interested in meeting with the lawyer right now. She is very worried about Raul. She feels responsible for the condition that he is in, and is amazed by the fact that he doesn't seem to blame her for what happened. The Hodge's become concerned about a lawsuit when they realize Brittany has spoken with Raul's parents, they think it might be a good idea to have a lawyer call them, so that the Hodge's can "express their concern." Brittany is disgusted by her parents, Raul could be dying upstairs, and all they care about is money.
Raul is checked by Dr. Reese, he has no feeling in his legs yet. The Dr. tries to comfort him by saying that it's too soon to determine whether or not he is paralyzed. Diego and Mac stop in to visit Raul. They tell Raul to think positive and keep his spirits up. At first Raul doesn't remember much about the accident, but as he thinks the events of the night, all of the details return to him. Raul: "Brittany was driving the car and she was very drunk." Just as Raul realizes that Brittany is at fault for the accident, and also the reason that he may never walk again, she enters the room. As Brittany sits comforting him, Raul just gives her an incredulous stare.
Max burst into Lorie's hotel room dragging Nikki by the hand. Lorie looked at him, incredulous, and asked him what he was doing there. He gave himself away by replying that he couldn't wait any longer, that nothing was happening in the room. Shocked as well, Nikki turns around and quickly exits the room. Victor approached Max and threatened that if their stunt costs him his marriage to Nikki, he will have hell to pay. Infuriated, Lorie began packing and started yelling at Max, saying he ruined all chances for she and Victor to even be friends anymore, and that she wished she had never gone along with the scheme. Max told her he is upset with her for not activating the camera and blowing the scheme. She blew up again, and told him that Victor's commitment to Nikki is real and there was nothing she or anyone else could do to change that. Max hardly noticed that she left-he is still not accepting the situation for what it is. He picked up the phone and asked the concierge to order flowers and send them to Victor and Nikki's wedding.
Victor and Nikki both went to the ranch and neither knew what to say. They both talked about how they were lured to the hotel by Max and Lorie and what went on in each respective room. Nikki asked Victor what he was feeling when Lorie was pouring her heart out to him. He told her that he felt compassion for her, but their relationship was long since over. They shared a good laugh over the whole thing.
Brad and Olivia had another heart-to-heart about Ashley's situation, and she tells him he can stop by any time. Meanwhile, Jack stopped by the Carlton home to see how Ashley was doing. She asked him about Phyllis and Diane and he doesn't really want to talk about it. He inquired about her and Brad's relationship and she offered that it had been tense, especially since Victor's visit. She told him they were both protecting each other from their own pain, and it was creating a distance between them. Jack told her that for once, he was siding with Brad and that if she needed support she should lean on the family. Ashley got infuriated and told him to back off and she had no intention of not accepting Victor's support.
Brittany went into Raul's hospital room and commented that he looked better. Disgusted, Diego snaps at Brittany and Raul asked him and Mackenzie to leave the room so he could talk to Brittany alone. Brittany tried to avoid talking and admitted she was scared to hear what the doctor had to say. Raul told her about the potential paralysis in his legs and asked her to touch them, which she doesn't. He began crying and told her he was out of it the last time they talked, but now he had remembered all the details. He berated her for drinking so much and for not listening to him. She cried and asked for his forgiveness, but he just looked at her and said, "I blame you for this---it's all your fault."
Out in the hallway, Mackenzie tried to calm Diego down and encouraged him to go get a cup of coffee in the cafeteria. After he left, Brittany's parents approached her and expressed their "concern" for Raul. They also asked if she felt Raul was blaming Brittany for his condition, and Mackenzie, obviously taken aback, told them she couldn't answer the question.
The Hodges looked over and saw Raul's parents and decided they should go talk with them. Raul's dad told them he told Brittany to tell them he wanted to talk with them, but wasn't surprised that she didn't do it. Mr. Hodges told them their insurance would pay for all of Raul's hospital bills and any additional expenses, to which Raul's parents answered a quick, "We should hope so." They go on and on about what a good girl Brittany is and compared their children's tragedies-Brittany being arrested and Raul being in the hospital. Fed up with their phoniness, Raul's parents both gave them a piece of their minds, telling them exactly what they thought of their behavior and their "selfish and thoughtless" daughter, before storming off. Once they were out of earshot, Mr. Hodges looked at his wife and said, "We're in trouble."
As Brittany left Raul's room in tears, she avoids the accusing eyes of his parents. Her parents ask how he is doing, and Brittany broke down and asked her father to hold her.
