While Maggie and Paul were visiting, Gloria remembered confessing to William, before he suffered a stroke, that she had tainted the cream. After William managed to write the word "murderer" on a pad, Michael and Gloria quickly shifted the subject of discussion to Jana.

Heather said her first priority was the extortion case against Phyllis Abbott. Maggie and Paul had to leave because Maggie got the call that Kevin and Jana had been found.
Maggie and Paul arrived at the warehouse to find Colleen and Kevin. Jana, still cuffed to a pipe, swore that Kevin had lured her there and tried to kill her.

Nick's suggestion that they go riding made Phyllis laugh. She told him they usually never got out of the stables. Before they could leave, Michael arrived to give Phyllis the news about her extortion case. Nick left so they could talk, and Phyllis said Michael's timing was lousy. Michael reminded her that she needed to focus first on getting out of trouble, and next on getting her husband back. Phyllis agreed.
Michael went home and told Lauren how worried he was about Phyllis. She seemed like herself on the outside, but inside, she was terrified of going to jail and of losing Nick. In the meanwhile, Nick went to Indigo, where he ran into Logan. He told her that he was starting to understand why the old Nick had married Phyllis. She was fun and she was smart.

Nick asked what she wanted to do and where she wanted to be, and Logan admitted that she wanted to stay in Genoa City.
At the hospital, Kevin and Colleen were waiting for someone to take care of Kevin. Gloria came in and threw herself on Kevin, warning him that he'd better never do anything like that again. She was happy, however, that he'd managed to trap Jana. Later, Kevin was horrified when he saw Jana being wheeled into the hospital on a gurney. Maggie told him that Jana had suffered some kind of seizure. Kevin said she was faking it so she could escape.
Paul came to the hospital, and Maggie talked to him privately. She'd noticed how struck he was by the sight of Heather, and Paul admitted that it was true. He then made another confession. Heather was his daughter, but Heather didn't know that.
Later Maggie was able to talk to Jana, who told her that Kevin had lured her there with a lot of money and then tried to kill her. Maggie went outside and asked Kevin if any part of that was true. Neither Kevin nor Colleen seemed on the verge of telling Maggie the truth. To them, it was their word against Jana's.
