Plot OverviewEdit

Jeff dislikes the fact that Miles and LB are getting along so well. Fallon is indignant when she must state that he is thinking about an abortion in order to solve the problem with the child.


Jason suggests that Miles might adopt a child since not the blood is important but the love a child is given. But Sable is already about to apply her new knowledge. In fact, Arthur Cates can confirm that Miles has got certain rights as "presumed father".

Channing is confused by Sable's good mood, Frankie rather made nervous, but she for her part refuses to tell Jason what she knows.

Anna is afraid that Kolia might be reported by Sasha and asks Bliss to stay away from him.


Jason suspects Cash to be the one who gave some information to Zach who is still trying to get influence on I.M.O.S. Cash confesses to Monica that he still loves her, but her answer is that emotion doesn't count with her any more.

After Sasha has prevented Bliss and Kolia from meeting at the hotel, she sadly decides to follow Anna's advise. She turns him down when he calls the next day.

Sable attacks Fallon with strange questions and allusions. Miles’ confession that he raped Fallon five months ago gives Sable the final confirmation of her suspicion, she reveals to him that he is very likely to be her baby's father. Miles is furious and accuses Fallon of trying to cheat him out of his child. Channing is not quite happy about the way things turn out. Sable talks to Jason about the news. He is terrified when he comes to know that she's already told Miles. He makes Jeff leave in order to prevent a confrontation.

Cash tries to convince Monica that he's got only a marriage in name, she tries not to listen, but her resistance is already dwindling.
