Lauren explained that Michael not only cares for Phyllis as a client; he is also concerned for her welfare as a friend. Phyllis told Lauren that Nick's inability to relate to her as a spouse causes even more stress in her life.

Lily tearfully admitted that perhaps she has made a horrible mistake by marrying Daniel.
At Kevin's, Daniel and Kevin convinced an apathetic Cane that they must stick together in order to free Amber from whoever has kidnapped her. They agreed to go find Carson, who is their only lead in Amber's disappearance. However, before Kevin, Daniel and Cane left the apartment, an agent from the U.S. Treasurer's office showed up wanting to question Kevin, Daniel and Amber. The agent, John Bonacheck, explained that marked bills from a $700,000 theft had been traced to each of them. When the agent was busy taking a call, Kevin quickly told Daniel and Cane that they could not disclose any information about the stolen money. The agent showed the young men a photo of Plum, but Kevin, Daniel and Cane denied knowing the man in the photo. When the agent asked about Amber, Cane explained that he did not know where his wife is. At that point, Neil, still reeling from his heart-to-heart talk with Lily, burst in ranting at Daniel about Amber's kidnapping and the stolen money. After the agent identified himself to Neil, he demanded more information. Neil explained that Daniel and Kevin had discovered a note demanding return of the money they'd taken for Amber's return.
After the agent ordered Neil to phone the police about Amber's kidnapping, Kevin summoned Michael to the apartment to represent him in yet another legal debacle. Agent Bonacheck rattled Daniel's and Kevin's cages when he told them that they could face up to ten years in prison for their roles in these alleged crimes. While Neil waited to talk to a detective, the Agent Bonacheck drilled Cane for information after Kevin and Daniel refused to cooperate. Cane told the agent that Amber is a con artist and that he wasn't sure if anything she'd ever told him was the truth. When Cane mentioned Carson's suspected role in the kidnapping, the agent added Carson's name to the list of people he intended to interrogate. Cane also told the agent that Plum was at the morgue, but that he didn't know whether or not Plum been murdered. An angry Neil told Daniel that he felt like knocking him into next week. Daniel admitted that he'd screwed up, but Neil reminded Daniel that he'd had one screw up after another, and he heatedly warned Daniel to stay away from Lily.
Colleen, back from a visit to New York, showed up at Adrian's. Their reconciliation was awkward at first, but after the couple discussed the reasons they hadn't seen eye-to-eye regarding Colleen's role in Kevin's plan to trap Jana, they rekindled their love. Just as the two were about to make love, however, Lily knocked on the door. Lily told Colleen about Daniel having spent the stolen money and about Amber's kidnapping. She said she felt as if she didn't really know her husband, who she had once thought was a good person. Colleen didn't defend Daniel, and both Lily and Adrian urged Lily to contact the police about the kidnapping. Adrian and Colleen listened as Lily talked about Daniel spending most of his free time online visiting porn sites. Adrian offered an explanation that perhaps Daniel had acquired destructive behavioral compulsions as a way to deal with life's pressures. Lily said that Daniel's actions have impacted how she relates to him and that she often thinks Daniel's doing something wrong even when he isn't. Lily said she wants to be normal again. Neil picked Lily up at Adrian's and explained that Daniel was being questioned by the U. S Treasury Department. Later, Adrian walked into the room and overheard Colleen talking on the phone to Kevin. Adrian was not at all pleased.
When Michael arrived at Kevin's, the agent explained that he was investigating Daniel and Kevin. After Michael agreed to also represent Daniel, the agent told Michael about Amber's kidnapping. Michael took Daniel and Kevin into another room and questioned them. He also asked them about Plum's death. Daniel and Kevin denied involvement in the mysterious man's death. The two begged Michael to help locate Amber. Daniel asked Michael not to tell Phyllis about his involvement, and Michael agreed only because Phyllis doesn't need additional stress at this time in her difficult life.
When Maggie arrived at Kevin's and alerted search teams to hunt for Amber, Kevin and Daniel engaged in a shouting match with Cane over his cavalier attitude regarding Amber's fate.
