When Babe discovered Trevor's body in the freezer, Janet told her about the night that he had ended up "on ice" -- apparently, Trevor had tried to have Janet committed, so she had picked up a golf club and beat him to death before putting him in the freezer.

May 8 to 12, 2006

Lily's circumstances grew dire when a man who was staying at her hotel talked her into consuming alcohol. Kendall lingered in a coma but was conscious of what was going on around her. Zach objected to the doctors performing an emergency Cesarean section on Kendall, so he barricaded the door to keep them out of her room. Kendall later heard shots ring out as Derek tried to enter her room. Dixie visited JR after he was arrested. JR was unable to raise money for his bail payment because Adam had frozen JR's accounts.

After being released from jail, JR apologized to Babe and begged her to forgive him for everything that he had put her through since learning that Dixie was alive. JR also revealed that he had joined a recovery program that would hold him accountable for attending group therapy sessions as part of the recovery process. The news pleased Babe, but she was reluctant to forgive JR right away. Erica was initially thrilled when Bianca returned to Pine Valley to be at Kendall's side, but she got upset when she later learned that Bianca had not tried to convince Zach to consent to a surgery that Erica believed was necessary in order to save Kendall's life. Ryan confessed his love for Kendall to Bianca. Ryan later talked to Zach and asked for permission to see Kendall.

Kendall emerged from her coma and was happily reunited with Spike, who remained in the neonatal intensive care unit. Greg found himself buried in a pine box beneath the park's garden, with access to food, water, light, and oxygen to ensure his survival. Greg's captor later disguised their voice and explained that Greg would not be released until he revealed Kate's whereabouts and a DNA test confirmed her identity. Del learned that Greg was missing and blew up Greg's yacht in an effort to keep him from using it to flee Pine Valley.
June 12 to 16, 2006
Babe saved JR from being sent to jail. As Kendall slowly recovered, she and Zach plotted to take care of Babe and JR, respectively. Jonathan suffered a seizure and was taken to the hospital. Jonathan later woke up and was declared medically fit, but his speech patterns indicated that he was no longer suffering from the cognitive difficulties that his brain surgery had caused. Jonathan told Erin the truth but reverted to his old speech patterns when Lily saw him. Jonathan viewed his recovery as a blessing that would allow him to take better care of Lily, but he refused to tell anyone other than Erin the truth because he believed that it would be best to pretend that he was still "impaired" for Lily's sake. Greg remained buried underground and stubbornly refused to reveal Kate's whereabouts, even when his health started to falter. Josh heard Greg's voice in the park, but he convinced himself that he was simply imagining things. Jeff Martin returned to Pine Valley and met Josh. Erica feared that Jeff would eventually tell Josh the truth.
June 19 to 23, 2006
Josh was suspended from the hospital for two weeks after his attempt to humiliate JR backfired. Jeff considered telling Josh the truth. During a rainstorm, JR discovered Babe and Josh on the roof of Fusion in what appeared to be a romantic moment. Terry showed up in Pine Valley looking for his ex-wife, Annie, who had disappeared with their daughter. When Terry ran through the park during the storm, he happened to see Lily and remembered that he had previously encountered her in New York City, where he had tried to convince her to have sex with him. Kendall made it perfectly clear that Babe was not in charge of Fusion. Ryan talked to Zach about their discovery that Greg had used his own sperm samples during his years of helping women with their fertility problems. Zach reminded Ryan that as far as everyone else, including Kendall, was concerned, Ryan was the only person who could possibly be Spike's father. Greg panicked when water started leaking into his coffin.
June 26 to 30, 2006
Terry stalked Lily. Jack was still upset with Erica and didn't bother to correct her when she jumped to the wrong conclusion after she saw him leave their yacht with Brooke. Erin broke things off with Aidan. JR made a generous offer to prove to Krystal that he was a changed man. Jamie and JR abducted Josh and put him in a walk-in freezer in an effort to push Greg's buttons. Babe freed Josh, who confidently identified Jamie and JR as his abductors even though he had never actually seen their faces. Greg feared that he would never make it out of the coffin alive. The judge dismissed the case against Zach due to a lack of evidence. Tremors started to rock Pine Valley.

July 3 to 7, 2006
Nearly everyone was a suspect after an earthquake rocked Pine Valley and Greg's body was discovered in a coffin. Josh was convinced that JR was responsible for Greg's death and enlisted Kendall's help to make JR pay for the crime. Kendall was taken aback when she learned of the theory that Greg was the donor for all of the artificial inseminations that he had performed over the years. Ryan told Kendall that he loved her and that Zach knew how Ryan felt about her. Colby returned home to her father, but not without controversy.
July 10 to 14, 2006
JR's blackmailer turned out to be Colby. Babe heard a recording of Greg's last words that left her completely shaken. Babe grew increasingly concerned that JR was the person who had buried Greg alive. JR was stunned when Babe let him listen to the recording. Worried that Greg was Spike's biological father, Kendall turned to Josh for help and a DNA test, and he was shocked when the results revealed that he shared genetic markers with Spike. Unaware of his true biological link to Kendall, Josh broke the news that Greg was Spike's biological father. Erica was heartbroken when Zach told her that Kendall had learned that Greg had secretly been fathering children at his fertility clinic. Di told Aidan that Erin had moved on with another man. Ryan learned Annie's secret.
July 17 to 21, 2006
JR tried to convince Babe that he was being set up for Greg's kidnapping and murder. Babe was skeptical but decided to figure out who had really killed Greg, and her investigation led her to David's home, where she found a transceiver that was just like the one that had allowed Greg's captor to communicate with Greg in the coffin. Erica was forced to tell Kendall the truth about Josh. Kendall and Ryan decided to do another paternity test to finally determine who Spike's father really was. Jamie and Julia were caught in an embarrassing and compromising position. Josh's actions caused Joe to question Julia's competence as a nurse. Josh decided to leave town and asked Babe to accompany him. Jonathan confronted Terry, who denied that he had tried to hurt Lily in New York City. Aidan called Lily, and when she saw Terry, her reaction confirmed the man's guilt.
July 24 to 28, 2006
The second paternity test for Spike revealed that he was indeed Ryan's son. JR planned to blow Josh's world apart, and he asked Krystal to help Babe through the fallout. Rihanna performed two of her hit songs at ConFusion's grand opening, where Josh finally learned that Erica was his biological mother when Greg's final recording was played for everyone. Erica and Kendall tried to talk to Josh, but he was too shaken and angry to say much. Babe rushed after Josh when he stormed off, and they ended up on his private jet. Against Babe's wishes, Josh fired up the jet and took off. When Josh later realized that the jet was low on fuel, he radioed the tower for help and was informed that he was going to have to find another place to land because the airport had been closed due to foggy conditions. Zach and Dixie followed a lead to Philadelphia, but it turned out to be a dead end. Erin was eager to explain things to Aidan, but when she finally found him, he was in a passionate embrace with Di. Jack heard Jonathan give Erin advice in his normal voice.
July 31 to August 4, 2006
Dixie and Zach were arrested for Greg's murder. Kendall was as certain of Zach's innocence as Tad was of Zach and Dixie's guilt. Josh and Babe survived the plane crash and were stranded on a deserted island. JR was despondent at first, but Jamie and Julia convinced him not to give up hope, and they formed their own search party together. Erin told Aidan why she had ended things and kept the truth about Annie from him, but he was unable to get past the fact that Erin hadn't trusted him enough to tell him the truth earlier.

August 7 to 11, 2006
Babe and Josh were rescued. Babe offered Josh a job at Fusion. Erin promised to help JR deal with Josh. Colby got a new nemesis. Zach told Kendall that he and Dixie were planning to claim that they had been having sex in a hotel room at the time of Greg's disappearance. Kendall wondered why Zach, who supposedly had nothing to hide, was worried about establishing an alibi for himself. Tad told David that Dixie was having an affair with Zach. Erica tried to talk Jack out of filing a motion to have Lily declared incompetent. Jonathan was upset to learn that Jack was willing to go to such lengths to keep him away from Lily.

Terry made it clear to Annie that he could get to her and Emma quite easily if he wished to do so.
August 21 to 25, 2006
Kendall threatened to expose the truth about Dixie's false alibi if Dixie ever crossed a line with Zach. David suspected that Emma was actually Dixie's daughter, Kate.

The hospital was subsequently overwhelmed with injured partygoers, but Colby was conspicuously absent. Zach and Kendall continued to drift apart. Annie accidentally shot Ryan, who was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Kendall stayed at Ryan's bedside as she waited to find out if he was going to be all right. Lily's online friend convinced her to meet him at a cabin, and things turned terrifyingly violent when she got there and realized that Terry had tricked her. Terry struck Lily when she tried to leave, and when she subsequently fell into a catatonic state, he started to undress her with lecherous intentions. Meanwhile, Jonathan and Jack each desperately searched for Lily. The sound of a gunshot led Jack to the cabin, where he found Jonathan, who dropped a gun and admitted that he had killed Terry.
September 18 to 22, 2006
Everyone desperately searched for Colby in the aftermath of the yacht accident, unaware that she was hiding in the secret passages of the Chandler mansion, eavesdropping on various private conversations while contemplating her next move. Krystal insisted that Tad needed to keep quiet about the night that they had spent together, since she was in love with Adam and didn't want to hurt him, especially when his daughter was missing. Julia ended her relationship with Jamie. Jamie admitted to JR that his feelings for Julia were real. As Babe and Josh were having sex on the rooftop of Fusion, JR entered the building and found her dress laying on the floor.

Adam was overjoyed when he learned that Krystal was pregnant. Adam found directions for a home pregnancy test and jumped to the conclusion that Babe was pregnant, but when she flatly denied that the pregnancy test belonged to her, everyone turned to Colby for an explanation. Babe admitted that she was in love with both JR and Josh. Lily was released from the hospital and returned home. Sean learned that Jack had been granted guardianship of him. Erica felt that Jack's growing responsibilities were making it harder for him to stick to his end of their agreement that they wouldn't allow their children's problems to drive a wedge between them. Jonathan asked Amanda if their arrangement was interfering with her love life. Tad explained that he had lied on the witness stand to establish reasonable doubt for Zach and Dixie so that they would have a chance of being acquitted. Zach tried to return the favor when Derek went to arrest Tad. Kendall and Ryan grew closer.
October 9 to 13, 2006
Bianca returned to Pine Valley. Colby accused Josh of seducing her after the yacht accident, weaving a story about a callous man taking advantage of a young, traumatized girl that was convincing enough for the police to arrest him.
