Inside room number 148 at a seedy motel near Genoa City, Katherine tugged at the ropes that held her captive in an armchair. Katherine's deranged but tenderhearted guard, Annie, occupied her time by reading Katherine's memoirs. Annie claimed that she had become acquainted with Katherine Chancellor from reading recollections of the wealthy woman's life, including the time Marge maliciously masqueraded as Katherine. After Katherine complained that the ropes around her wrists were too tight, Annie charged at Katherine and waved a knife near her face. Annie, believing that Katherine was truly Marge, threatened Katherine and reminded her prisoner that the DNA results had proved that she was not Mrs. Chancellor.
Annie sobbed as she read Amber's account of Katherine's supposed death. Katherine reminded Annie that she had referred to Katherine as Mrs. C., just as Amber always had. Annie denied the claim and explained that Mrs. Chancellor's story had saddened her, so she made a mistake. Katherine asked why Clint and Roger had kidnapped her if they didn't believe that she was truly Katherine Chancellor. Annie admitted that she had asked Clint the same question, but Annie refused to elaborate. A distressed Katherine sank into her chair and rolled her eyes after Annie remarked, "It's none of your beeswax," regarding Clint's response.
Katherine finally convinced Annie to untie the ropes. Katherine walked around to stimulate circulation of her blood. Annie brandished the knife and warned Katherine not to try anything. Katherine asked Annie about the memoirs. Annie said she had just read about the time Jill hired Rex to seduce Katherine. Katherine clearly recalled that, just after that event, Clint had kidnapped her. Annie, who had developed a connection to the subject of the memoirs, warned Katherine not to impersonate Mrs. Chancellor. Katherine remembered that she had not included anything about Clint in her memoirs, and she asked Annie if Clint had mentioned that he had served a prison sentence for kidnapping. Annie was astonished. Katherine suggested that Annie ask Clint herself. Clint had arrived undetected and said, "Ask me what?"
Clint warned Annie that Marge was a liar. Katherine reminded Clint that he had failed to steal her fortune once and would likely fail again. Katherine imitated a soothsayer, pointed at Clint, and whispered, "I see prison in your future." Clint seemed startled and demanded that Katherine reveal something about herself that wasn't documented in her book. Katherine admitted that her memory was hazy. Clint ordered Annie to tie Katherine up. Katherine convinced Annie not to tie the ropes too tightly. Annie flashed the knife as a preemptive warning to Katherine not to attempt an escape.
At a bar, Clint told Roger that perhaps "Marge" truly was Katherine. Roger suggested they demand a ransom from Katherine's family, but Clint explained that Katherine's family believed she was dead. Instead, Clint insisted, Roger must marry Esther immediately because she was their surefire meal ticket. After Clint left, Paul walked into the bar and took a seat on a barstool within earshot of Roger. Moments later Roger phoned the county clerk's office and inquired about waiving the five-day waiting period for a marriage license because his fiancée's hospitalized daughter was on her deathbed.
Paul continued to eavesdrop as Roger phoned Esther and told her that he understood why she wanted to postpone their marriage. Roger praised Esther and told her she was a good mother for looking after Chloe. Esther became giddy after Roger announced that he had a surprise for her. After Paul overheard Roger's plans, he went to Jill's office and explained that Roger Wilkes was a bigamist who had used several aliases. Paul explained that Roger had been charged a couple of times, but the women wouldn't testify against him. Jill guessed that Roger chose desperate women. Paul said that Roger married rich women, and then he took them for all they were worth. Jill panicked when Paul explained that Roger had arranged to marry Esther immediately. Jill picked up the phone and tried to reach Esther.
In Victor's office at Newman Enterprises, Michael asked J.T. why Colleen would suddenly become interested in her late father's seat on the board of directors. J.T. said he had no idea because Colleen had studied history. Neil suggested that Brad's death had left Colleen reeling, so her decision might be an emotional backlash. Victor ordered J.T. and Neil to convince Colleen that she had no business on Newman's Board of Directors. After Neil and J.T. left, Victor told Michael that someone was prompting Colleen's plan to take Brad's board seat.
J.T. visited with a shaken Colleen in the break room just after Colleen's awkward meeting with Victor. J.T. asked Colleen why she wanted to butt heads with Victor. J.T. theorized that Colleen's impetus might be the threatening phone message Victor had left for Brad before his death. Colleen explained that she had every right to take her father's seat, and that her father would have been pleased and honored. Colleen added, "It's too bad if the great Victor Newman doesn't like it."
J.T. told Victor that he was unable to convince a stubborn Colleen that she should forgo her plan to take Brad's vacant seat on Newman's Board of Directors. Victor told Colleen that Brad had become a member of the Newman board after he married Victoria, and that Brad should have relinquished that seat after he and Victoria divorced. Colleen mentioned that some board directors were not members of Victor's family. Victor countered that those members had deep pockets and financial contacts. Colleen calmly explained that she was enthusiastic and would bring a different point of view.
Colleen managed to contain her nervousness as she explained to Victor that according to his company's bylaws, she had every right to take Brad's seat. Victor raised his eyebrows and asked, "Do you know what you're getting into?" Colleen secretly recalled Jack's advice to her about showdowns with Victor. Jack had advised, "The mustache is a blowhard who likes to pound his chest. He is all overcompensation and hot air and cannot touch you. Remember that!" Victor asked Colleen about her mentor. Colleen maintained that her father had been her mentor, and Colleen insisted that she knew exactly what she was doing. Victor met with J.T. after Colleen left. Victor told J.T. that someone was directing Colleen's actions. Victor ordered J.T. to find out who that person was. Victor reminded J.T. that doing so was critical in order to protect their family.
Tyra and Ana waited nervously at the bus station. Ana borrowed Tyra's cell phone and pretended to play with the phone's game applications. While boarding announcements diverted Tyra's attention, Ana secretly phoned Neil and continued to hold the phone as if she were gaming. After Neil answered, Ana casually questioned Tyra about their bus trip. Neil listened intently as Tyra promised that she would never allow anyone to take Ana away. At the coffeehouse, where Marisol had been supervising Tyra's visit with Ana, Marisol and Karen panicked when they found no trace of Ana or Tyra. Karen insisted that Marisol phone the police and issue an Amber Alert before something happened to Ana.
Just before Tyra and Ana boarded a bus, Neil walked into the bus station. Ana ran into Neil's open arms. Tyra was surprised to see Neil. Tyra defended her actions and explained that the authorities would take Ana away. Neil explained that Marisol had issued an Amber Alert, so they had to return Ana to Marisol immediately. Neil warned Tyra to give up her efforts to run away with Ana. Before Neil could whisk Tyra and Ana from the bus station, Detective Wallace showed up. Detective Wallace told Neil that he would have to take Tyra and Ana to the police station. Neil pleaded with the detective to phone Marisol and request that she meet with Neil, Tyra, and Ana at Neil's apartment. Detective Wallace agreed to phone Marisol and cancel the Amber Alert, but he added that it would be up to Marisol to decide what to do.
Marisol and Detective Wallace met with Neil, Tyra, Ana, Karen, and Lily at Neil's apartment. Marisol announced that she would have to assign Ana to another foster home, but Ana adamantly refused to go. Lily steered Ana into another room to play a game. Neil lied and claimed that he had asked Tyra and Ana to meet him at the bus station because one of his clients was also there. Detective Wallace admitted that Tyra and Ana weren't about to board a bus when he arrived. Neil pleaded with Marisol and took full responsibility for what had happened. Marisol agreed to let the matter go, but she warned Neil that she would place Ana into another foster home if it happened again. Karen assured Marisol that it would not happen again.
At the hospital, Esther volunteered to move in with Chloe to help with baby Delia. Chloe privately recalled confessing to Cane that he was not the baby's father. Chloe asked Esther to sit on her bedside and listen to what Chloe had to say. Before Chloe could continue, Lily walked in. Chloe abruptly announced that Cane wasn't there. Lily explained that she had come to check on Chloe and the baby. Chloe snapped back, "Sure, you did." Esther reminded her daughter "Katie" that Lily had helped saved the lives of Chloe and her baby. Esther walked out suddenly to take a call from Roger. Chloe told Lily that she and the baby were fine. Billy walked in. Chloe told Billy that she thought he would have been on the next plane to Hong Kong. Lily stormed out without saying a word to Billy.
Billy hovered over baby Delia in her bassinette and stroked his baby's downy head. Chloe asked Billy if everyone knew that he was Delia's father. Billy admitted that Jill knew. Chloe said the Esther didn't know. Delia cried, and Chloe instructed Billy to pick the baby up gently. Cane watched through a window in the door as Billy cradled his baby and crawled into Chloe's bed. Cane turned away and phoned Michael to arrange an urgent meeting. After the call, Lily approached Cane and asked to speak to him privately.
At the coffeehouse, Lily apologized to Cane for not having told him that Billy was the father of Chloe's baby. Lily explained that when the baby was born, she was unable to break Cane's heart when she witnessed his loving reaction to the newborn. Lily swore that she would have eventually told Cane the truth even if Billy and Chloe had not. Cane was indifferent to Lily's expression of concern for his feelings. Cane coolly explained that he planned to make decisions about his future without regard to Chloe, Billy, or Lily. Lily asked Cane if it was fair to lump her together with Chloe and Billy. Before Cane walked out, he said, "I think Chloe was right. Go after what you want, and to hell with everything else." Lily seemed stunned by Cane's overt announcement.
Esther retuned to Chloe's room after Billy left. Esther fussed over Chloe and offered water and warm blankets. A nervous Chloe insisted that her mother sit still and listen. Chloe attempted to tell Esther that Billy was the baby's father, but Roger burst in. Roger glanced at Delia and remarked, "She looks like her daddy." Esther swooned when Roger announced that his surprise was an instant wedding he had already arranged. Chloe attempted to stall the ceremony, but Esther wouldn't heed her daughter's protests. Chloe looked bewildered as her mother kissed Roger and said, "Yes, Roger. I will marry you now!"
Chloe cringed as Roger directed Esther's attention to his hastily arranged, tacky wedding décor. Billy walked in and remarked, "Holy 99-cent store, Batman. What's going on around here, kids?" Chloe explained that Esther and Roger planned to marry. Billy nearly choked on his coffee when Roger asked Billy to be best man. Billy whispered to Chloe that she must not have told Esther that he was the baby's father. After the ceremony began, Esther, wearing a veil attached to a gaudy crown trimmed with pink fur, stopped the ceremony to announce that Roger had brought joy and hope to her life. Delia cried, and Billy picked up the baby. Esther rejoiced that her grandchild was present for the wedding. Acknowledging Esther's remark, the minister said, "Children are the glue that holds a couple together." Billy and Chloe smiled knowingly at each other.
At Jabot, Jill berated a disheveled Billy for arriving late and hung-over. Billy was about to tell his mother that he was Delia's father. Before Billy could speak, Cane burst in and announced that Chloe and Billy had known each other in New York. After Billy left, Jill told Cane that she always believed that Chloe was a gold digger. Cane said that Chloe's lies manipulated their family. Jill was angry that Billy had dishonored his family. After Jill suggested that Cane file for divorce, Cane said he would do the right thing. Cane later met with Michael at the coffeehouse. Cane told Michael that he planned to divorce his wife, but wanted shared custody of their child.
