Against Sharon's wishes, Nicholas confronted Nikki about the way she was treating Sharon. This, of course, infuriated Nikki, who pointed out that even young Cassie understood Sharon was a liar and a cheater. She begged him not to let Sharon worm her way back into their home, but he was not having any of it. He told her Sharon was sorry and that she was doing her best to rebuild her relationship with Cassie and Noah—they needed her. He went on to tell her in no uncertain terms that if she and Victor wanted any kind of relationship with him, they were not to interfere in his marriage. She reluctantly agreed before he slammed out the door.
Sharon was doing her best to bond with the children at home, but Cassie had a sour attitude. Once Noah was out of earshot, she told her mother she really had Noah fooled. Sharon took exception to that comment and told Cassie she wasn't trying to fool anyone. She sat her down and asked what she was doing that so upset Cassie, and she told her she didn't like the way Sharon was trying to act like everything was back to normal. She also added that she would never forgive Sharon for leaving, no matter what. Sharon tried to reassure her by telling her she would never leave again, but Cassie was not open to hearing it.
She asked Sharon if she could spend the night in the tack room with Vicki, and Sharon told her she didn't think it was such a good idea. She told her she couldn't keep avoiding her if she wanted the situation to get better. She offered a compromise: she could stay at Vicki's if afterward they could focus on rebuilding their relationship. Cassie told her "no thanks" and that she would just go ahead and sleep at home before walking out the door.
She went up to see Nikki and told her she really wanted to get out of the house to get away from Sharon. Nikki was sympathetic and told Cassie everything was just going to take some time for things to smooth out. She also suggested to try to keep a little bit of distance, and Cassie took that opportunity to tell her about wanting to sleep at Vicki's. She conveniently forgot to tell Nikki that Sharon had actually agreed to it with the condition. She only told her Sharon wouldn't let her. She pleaded with Nikki to step in and help her, and Nikki agreed. Soon afterward, Nikki barged in to Sharon's, which made Sharon very angry. She demanded that Nikki go back outside and knock on the door like the guest she was. Nikki angrily complied, and then started in on her about Cassie. She told her exactly what she thought about Cassie not being able to stay with Vicki, but Sharon stopped her short. She told her Cassie was her daughter, she would decide how to raise her, and that Nikki should "keep her stuck up nose" out of it.
After a brief visit with Mary to try to get some answers, Chris headed back over to the hospital to find out the test results. Olivia told her the CAT scan was normal, but she wanted to admit her to run more tests to be as thorough as possible. Wes came in, interrupting their conversation, and before introductions were finished, Olivia's beeper went off and she had to leave. He stayed and once Chris found out he was a psychiatrist, she opened up to him about her blackout situation. She told him she was afraid of what might have happened in light of how violent she felt toward Isabella. She asked if he had any explanation of what may have happened to her, and he told her of a disorder he knew of where the mind could block out certain segments of a person's life and cause them not to remember. The explanation was both comforting and frightening to her, especially knowing it was possible for her to become violent toward Isabella.
Meanwhile, Paul was annoyed to find Detective Weber at his door, demanding to wait inside for Chris to return. Almost immediately, Michael called looking for Chris and Weber answered the phone. He asked to speak with Paul and because of Weber's presence there, they had a very vague conversation. Michael asked if Chris mentioned being near Lake Michigan and Paul answered in the affirmative. Michael wouldn't tell him anything else, other than he would be there soon. Weber asked about the conversation, but Paul was vague with him, as well. Getting annoyed with Paul's resistance, Weber told him he seemed far more interested in protecting Chris than he did in finding out what happened to his own wife. This angered Paul and he told him he shared everything he knew and that he wasn't covering anything. Weber ended up getting a phone call and having to leave, much to Paul's relief.
Michael met up with Otis (the man with Chris's cell phone) who continued to complain about the mess in his boat. He showed the bloody mess to Michael who was shocked to see the extent of the mess. Michael offered the man several hundred dollars to have the boat cleaned, which he gladly took, but kept on complaining. After he left, Michael just looked at the bloody boat, perplexed.
