At the psychiatric hospital, Adam covertly snitched an orderly's flashlight. As the orderly searched for the flashlight, Adam huddled in a fetal position and cried that his family wanted to kill him. After the orderly turned out the lights and locked the door, Adam quickly retrieved the flashlight and mounded pillows under his blanket to make it look like someone was in bed sleeping. Adam removed the screws from the screen covering the ventilation system. Adam crawled into the ductwork and shimmied his way toward Patty's room.
In Patty's room, a nurse administered nightly medications. Patty flashed back to the night of the ball and remembered standing in the basement of the Genoa City Athletic Club. After Patty swallowed her pills, she said, "Make all the bad stuff go away. It was a lie! I didn't kill him. There were two of them, but I didn't kill him." Uneasy, Patty nestled herself in bed, but she was startled awake when she heard an ominous voice telling her that the devil was coming to get her. Patty, blinded by the glare of a flashlight, attempted to call out for help.
Before Patty could scream, Adam clutched his hand over her mouth and said, "I've come from hell for you. And if you scream, I'll drag you back to hell with me." Patty promised not to scream and begged Adam to turn off the light. Adam said, "I'm the one who knows who you are and about all the dark stains on your soul." Patty was stunned to realize that Adam was in her room. She disjointedly mumbled about two Adams. Adam, still aiming the flashlight beam directly into Patty's face said, "Look at me. Two Adams, one murdered and sent to hell by you, and now I'm back to drag you to hell with me." Patty cried, "No, I didn't kill anyone, and you're not here."
Adam reminded Patty that she had claimed to be Emily and had killed him because he knew her secret. Patty hummed a song and tried to drown out Adam's accusations. Adam accused Patty of jamming a pen into his chest and shoving a cloth down his throat because she was angry with Jack for being nice to Phyllis. Patty sobbed and told Adam that he couldn't make her go to hell.
Adam replied, "Confess your sins. Tell the truth. Tell the world you murdered Adam Newman." Patty continued to deny killing Adam, but he chased her movement with the flashlight ray and insisted that she had followed him into the darkened cellar and jammed a pen into his heart. Patty cried, "No, no. You were mean to me, but I didn't kill you. I didn't!"
Evocative of a scene in Hamlet, Adam continued to taunt Patty mercilessly and insisted she had blood on her hands. Adam chanted, "Your kitties will be in heaven, and you'll be down there burning for all damnation. All that blood on your hands!" Patty flashed back to the night she encountered Hightower dressed in a cape and mask in the basement. Patty remembered seeing the dead man, and then she recalled seeing blood covering the palms and fingers of her hand.
Patty began screaming and sobbing uncontrollably. Adam said, "That's right-blood. Now you remember." After Adam left, Patty, sobbing, huddled under a desk. After a nurse arrived and attempted to calm Patty, she cried, "Oh, my God. I'll confess! Don't let the devil take me. I'll confess that I killed Adam!"
Adam quickly slid back through the ductwork and returned to his room. After Adam removed the pillows from atop his mattress, he crawled into bed. Two police officers burst in. One officer hoisted Adam to a standing position and handcuffed him. The other officer read the Miranda warning to Adam as he was arrested for conspiracy to commit murder.
At Indigo, Michael and Lauren were shocked to learn that Jeffrey bought the nightclub as an anniversary gift for Gloria. In a celebratory mood, Gloria served champagne and bragged that she would announce her new acquisition at Katherine's party.
At Crimson Lights, Tucker invited Ashley to accompany him to Katherine's party. Ashley was incensed to learn about Abby's racy video. Just after Ashley and Tucker left, Abby and Daniel walked into the coffeehouse. Abby ignored her mother's call and convinced Daniel to accompany her to the pool party at the Chancellor mansion.
On the patio at the Chancellor mansion, Nikki arrived and greeted Katherine and Murphy warmly. Murphy grilled steaks as Jill arrived with a man friend she introduced as Morgan Belford. Nearby, Billy chatted on the phone with Victoria, but he pretended to be speaking to a friend named Oscar. Victoria invited Billy over to his place to watch a Father Knows Best marathon. Billy quipped that he was more of a Leave It to Beaver, fan. As Billy walked past Nikki, he said, "Hello, Mrs. Newman. That's a lovely dress you're wearing," utilizing his best impression of Eddie Haskell. Nikki seemed perplexed by Billy's odd behavior.
After Tucker and Ashley arrived, Katherine learned that Ashley and Neil were no longer dating. Katherine bragged about Matilda and Charlie, and she announced that Mac would be heading home soon. Daniel arrived and greeted Murphy, Katherine, Ashley, and Tucker. Daniel admitted he missed Amber, but he explained that Abby had accompanied him and would arrive shortly. Ashley was embarrassed to disclose that Abby had released another video on the Internet that was worse than her previous debacle.
Ashley went inside Katherine's and found Abby there with a few friends. Abby asked about gaining access to her trust fund. Fuming, Ashley said that she'd seen her daughter's latest video, which she likened to pornography. Abby defended her business venture. Abby maintained that she was in control of herself and didn't go all of the way with Daniel.
Ashley, taken aback, seemed devastated when Abby said that her mother was doing more with Tucker. Abby added, "You know what, Mom? You're awesome, but woman-to-woman, all you are ever going to be to 'Player' McCall is flavor of the month." Ashley cried that her daughter's exploits were trashy. Abby retorted, "I am in total control, Mom, and I'm nowhere near finished."
Gloria and Jeffrey arrived at Katherine's pool party and pompously announced that Jeffrey had purchased Indigo for her. Nikki asked Gloria if she'd ever run a club. Gloria chuckled that she planned to rename the club after herself and revamp it with retro-modern versions of Victorian décor.
Nikki pointed out Jill's friend to Katherine, and both saw Jill hand the man a check. Katherine was shocked and thought Jill was paying an escort. Katherine approached Jill and Morgan and suggested that they leave. Before Jill could explain, Lauren and Michael arrived. Jill introduced Morgan to Lauren and Michael, and asked about Neil Fenmore's personal papers. Lauren stated that her father's papers were housed at the local library. Jill explained that she was more interested in personal papers.
Tucker approached Katherine and asked her to disclose how Victor managed to keep a foothold in Japan with Beauty of Nature. Katherine refused to dish dirt on her friend. Murphy interrupted and said, "Independence Day-life, liberty, and the pursuit of bratwurst, not business." Katherine glared at Tucker. Jill tapped a spoon on the side of a bottle and said she was about to make an announcement. Before Jill could speak, everyone's attention was drawn to the bubble-filled pool. Abby, covered only with sudsy bubbles, floated toward gawkers.
Ashley yelled Abby's name. Abby responded, "I am not Abby. I'm an otter. And this isn't a pool filled with bubbles. This is a river polluted with runoff. Save our waters. Save the otters!" Camera-wielding journalists steadily clicked shots as onlookers gasped in astonishment. Ashley dejectedly hung her head. Tucker ordered the camera-toting spectators to leave. Daniel covered Abby with beach towels when she emerged from the pool.
Ashley asked Abby if her actions were the proper way to represent their family. Abby said, "You have to stand for something, or you will fall for anything, and I know what I stand for!" Pointing her finger at Abby as she spoke, Katherine said, "Don't give me that garbage, for heaven sakes. You used my home as a publicity stunt? Not only was it selfish and rude, it was an insult to your parents, and was it ever an insult to me!"
Jill threw Abby off the property and continued with her announcement. Jill proudly proclaimed that she was Neil Fenmore's daughter and Lauren's sister. Lauren was distressed when Jill announced that she had legally changed her last name to Fenmore. A pall fell over the crowd, and Jill sarcastically told the party guests not to offer congratulations all at the same time. Lauren told Michael that she wanted to throw Jill into the pool. Nikki was shocked and apologized to Lauren and Michael for Jill's crass behavior. Nikki warned Lauren that Jill would torture her if she didn't play the part of the perfect little sister.
Jill sipped beer by herself. Tucker approached and said he was happy that Jill had found her birth family. Tucker explained that he created his own identity with his own expectations even after he learned that Katherine was his birth mother. Jill explained that deep down she always knew the names she'd used weren't her own. Nikki approached and said, "What you have always been, Jill, is grasping. Even though you think you know who your father is, it hasn't changed a thing." Jill told Nikki that she was jealous. Nikki asked Jill if she had ever stopped to consider how Lauren felt. Jill replied, "My birth mother was treated like garbage, and I spent my whole life never feeling like I fit in, but by all means, let's pity poor Lauren."
Jill pointed out that Lauren had been born into a manor house and was raised by a doting man, who was also her father. Nikki explained that Jill could not make up for lost time with her father by demanding that Lauren be her sister. Stunned party guests watched and listened as Nikki and Jill argued their cases. Lauren approached and said she needed to have a word with Jill. Lauren reminded Jill that she had a family, who had adopted her and loved her. Jill insisted that she was a Fenmore and had the same genes as Lauren. Lauren retorted, "Hell, why don't you just tattoo your forehead with "Fenmore" across it? But none of that is going to make you a Fenmore, and it never will!"
As the party wound down, Murphy and Katherine relaxed and watched fireworks. Ashley thanked Tucker for being supportive during Abby's exhibition. Michael spoke with Morgan and learned that he was Jill's attorney. Morgan warned Michael that they'd soon meet up in court.
Abby and Daniel retreated to the coffeehouse after her fiasco at Katherine's pool party. Abby, still basking in the glow of her triumph, asked, "Did you see their faces when I made my political statement?" Daniel replied, "You took a bubble bath in public, that's all. The only statement you're making is that you're a brat."
Abby begged Daniel to shoot photos of her for a cover of Restless Style. Daniel turned down the offer, but Abby reminded him that he'd need the income. Daniel still refused, so Abby offered to loan him some cash. As Abby was about to leave, she asked Daniel who'd cover her up if she decided to strip again. Daniel reluctantly rose from his seat and followed Abby to the patio. Abby and Daniel watched a fireworks show together as he finally let down and laughed about the expressions on guests' faces when Abby emerged nude from Katherine's sudsy pool.
Gloria and Jeffrey returned to the club and knocked down an interior wall with a sledgehammer. They argued about possible names for their club. After Jeffrey suggested calling it "Hair of the Dog," Gloria angrily warned, "You wouldn't dare!"
At Billy's trailer, Victoria and Billy were set to watch episodes of Father Knows Best when the power failed. Victoria lit candles and described her favorite episode she hoped they could watch if the generator worked. Billy entered the room, and Victoria illuminated his way with a flashlight. When Victoria saw Billy wearing black slacks, a white shirt, and a black cardigan, she asked him what he was doing. Billy admitted he couldn't get the generator going, but he said, "Oh, we don't need any gosh-darn television when we can play pinochle!"
Victoria noticed that Billy had slicked down his hair and crisply parted it on the side. Victoria laughed giddily and asked Billy if he'd used Brylcreem. Billy resisted Victoria's attempts to touch his hair. Victoria embraced Billy, kissed him, and unbuttoned his shirt. Victoria and Billy made love while fireworks lit up the sky outside.
