Plot OverviewEdit

Frankie and Jason defend themselves and manage to chase the gun man away, not knowing that it was Hoyt Parker. They return to Bel Air, Frankie feels guilty since the idea with the trip was hers. Jeff suggests personal protection for Jason.


Sable suggests Monica to tell Jason about Scott, but her daughter recognizes very clearly that Sable only hopes for Jason’s interference and swears never to speak to her again if she tells him.

Hoyt Parker is snooping around and looking for information, obviously against Jason. Meanwhile, Jason wonders what Conny and Hoyt Parker might have had in common.

Kolia swears to Bliss that nothing has happened between him and Gina, they reconcile. Later, Kolia moves out in order to gain some privacy for him and Bliss. Unfortunately Gina is around when they make an appointment. Gina arranges that Bliss finds her half naked in Kolia’s bathroom. Bliss runs away.

Fallon is planning to start working again, she's sick and tired of just hanging around doing nothing. Monica thinks the idea is gorgeous, but Jeff is of the opinion that she is occupied enough with her pregnancy. Jeff is also worried about the way Miles is acting ever since he has inherited Conny’s shares.


Jeff thinks that Zach has also something to do with the attempted murder on Jason, but Powers defends himself furiously by declaring he wants Jason alive for his revenge, not dead.

Channing keeps refusing to support any of Lucas’ dirty tricks, not even since he has recently signed over her trust to her. Channing warns Jason that her uncle Lucas is fairly dangerous and ruthless.

Jason blames Sable for telling Zach about his buying Syncrodine so that he could insinuate himself into the business, too. Sable accuses Zach of destroying Colby Enterprises and thus of fighting her, too. Instead of a reasonable explanation he asks her to marry him and gives her an engagement ring which she accepts, but she says she needs time to think about an answer. Nevertheless, she is more than happy to show Jason her ring.


Frankie is worried about Jason, too, but he finally moves back to her into the pool house. Nevertheless, he is kind of shocked about Sable's engagement to Zach.

Cash wants to marry Monica, but she says she can't for Scott’s sake. Scott runs away from home. Adrienne turns up at Jason’s all excited to tell him and Frankie that Scott is gone and that Monica should start looking for him - since she is his mother.
