At the Colby Mansion, they are confronted with Scott’s disappearance and the fact that Jason knows now about his grandson.

Bliss complains to Sable that Kolia is betraying her with Gina and that he has probably used them all, but Sable doesn't believe it. Kolia requests a new partner because he loves Bliss. Sable tells Bliss about it and Bliss, who knows now that the whole thing was Gina's doing, takes revenge: Miss Sinclair ends up sitting in Kolia’s birthday cake. Bliss and Kolia reconcile.

Adrienne assures Cash that he will lose Scott if he leaves her. Sable wants to pull Cash on her side concerning Scott and Adrienne, but he repeats that he won't appreciate her interference. Sable keeps trying to convince Monica that Adrienne is the worst sort of mother with her medical addiction and her suicide attempts.

Frankie receives a strange phone call, she doesn't know it's Hoyt Parker.


Miles and Channing argue because Miles thinks Lucas Carter is responsible for the attempted murder. Later, Miles tries to force Sam Erskin to apologize for the story in Lucas’ newspaper and even threatens him that he'll get back at him if something were to happen to Jason.
