Olivia remembered the kiss that she and Brad had shared. When Dru came in, she could tell something was bothering Olivia, but when she tried to question her, Olivia got defensive. Olivia then admitted that she was worried about Ashley and the way her cancer and treatment were affecting her. Dru understood that it must be hard to be both a doctor and Ashley's friend. But the more Olivia talked, the more aware Dru became that Olivia was just as worried, if not more worried, about Brad. When Olivia told her about the tapes Ashley was making for Abby, and how Ash had given one to her, Dru was very curious about what was on it, but pointed out that, even with all the family she had, Ashley had entrusted Olivia, not them, with the tape. She said she was worried about Olivia's involvement in all of this, and it was obvious she meant her sister's feelings for Brad.
Brad told a wan, listless Ashley that he wished things could be the way they used to be. Ashley told him to forget that. She told him that she had no energy and she felt like her body was being poisoned by the chemo--and even worse, she didn't know if it was working. Brad continued to try to get her to open up, and Ashley wanted him to back off. Finally Brad confessed his worry that he was the last thing Ashley needed. Ashley told him that he had been her rock, and she could not have endured all that she had without him. Just as they seemed about to really communicate, Brad took a call from John and found out that Phyllis had been arrested on suspicion of arson. When Brad told Ashley, she began to worry about her brother. Brad, on the other hand, seemed more concerned about the ordeal that Diane had been through. When Ash accused him of taking Diane's side against the family, Brad commented that he couldn't tell her who to be friends with, but she thought she could dictate who his friends were. Ashley became enraged and said it was typical of him to bring up Victor. Brad said the situations were different, as he'd never had a relationship with Diane or been married to her, nor was Diane interfering in his life all the time. Ashley defended Victor, saying that in some ways, he'd been more supportive than Brad had. At least Victor didn't try to tell her how to feel about what she was going through. Hurt, Brad said he was going to get some fresh air. He ended up at Olivia's door, telling her that he wasn't sure why he was there. Olivia urged him to come inside and tell her what was going on.
Isabella met Diane for breakfast at Gina's so that Diane could fill her in on the latest details in the arson investigation. Isabella asked if Diane had felt more secure knowing Phyllis was behind bars. She also wanted to know if Diane had accused Phyllis of running over her in the car on purpose. Diane said that since Jack felt Phyllis was innocent, if she'd accused Phyllis of running over her deliberately, Jack would never forgive her. But she did feel that she could hold that over Phyllis's head if she perceived again that Phyllis was a threat to her.
Out of jail on bail, Phyllis went with Jack to Gina's, hoping to regain her composure after her ordeal of the previous twenty-four hours. It was clear that she had Jack's full support and belief in her innocence. She told him that Diane was setting her up and would not hesitate to do all she could to make Phyllis look guilty of assault and arson. Jack tried to encourage Phyllis to consider that someone else might have been out to get Diane and wouldn't have known that Phyllis was going to be at the Abbott house that night. Phyllis spotted Diane across the restaurant and went to confront her over Jack's protests. Diane was alarmed to see her, and they all stood up and exchanged angry words. Phyllis accused Isabella of being Diane's minion. Isabella left in a huff. Then Phyllis told Diane that her little scheme had not worked. Not only was the evidence Diane had contrived flimsy, but Jack was more than ever on her side. Diane told Jack to keep Phyllis away from her, saying she'd get a restraining order if she had to. She then fled from the restaurant. Phyllis asked Jack if she was high maintenance, and Jack admitted she was. Phyllis then said there was someone she needed to go see, and she left Jack alone in Gina's.
Nick told Grace that what had happened between them the night before would not become a habit. He said he didn't know how his life had gotten so screwed up. Grace insisted that she would be there to provide whatever he needed from her, as it was obvious he was in pain.
Sharon was once again forced to cover when Nikki showed up at her house in the early morning. She said that the kids had already left for school, and Nick had already gone to the office. When Nikki questioned Sharon, saying she could sense something was wrong, Sharon assured her that everything was fine. Nikki then left, while Sharon wondered where Nick had been all night. When he came home, he dodged her questions, saying he'd had to get out of there because he'd known she was trying to use their kids to get to him. Sharon denied this and said she just wanted to keep things as normal for them all as possible. She then said it wasn't only the kids they were keeping up an act for. His mother had been there and was getting suspicious. Nick said he wanted his parents to have a few more days of happiness before they found out anything. After he left, Nikki returned, asking Sharon if she'd heard from Nick. When Sharon said he'd just called from the office, Nikki informed her that she'd just seen him leave in his car. Sharon finally admitted that things were a little off between them, but they would work it out, and Nikki shouldn't worry about it. After Nikki left, Sharon broke down in tears.
Nick was not happy to find Victoria waiting for him in his office. She demanded answers about Grace, but he told her only that he'd told Grace to go back to New York. Vicki told him that if he succumbed to temptation with Grace, he would be giving up his last chance to save his marriage. Nick said he was confused and wasn't sure what to do. Victoria hugged him and told him they would get through it.
Concerned and confused about her kids, Nikki went to Crimson Lights. Cody thanked her for inviting him to her beautiful wedding, but told her Nick wasn't there. Nikki turned around to walk out, then spotted Grace sitting in the coffee shop. She crossed the room and asked Grace what she was doing there.
