Mary seeks Ryan out at court because it's Greenlee's birthday and she's still missing. Greenlee's hallucinations in the hole continue and she swears she'll be a better person if she ever gets out. Ryan keeps getting psychic flashes. Still, no one except her mom is overly concerned about Greenlee's absence.
Erica, Bianca and Kendall are gathered in the private room in the courthouse. As Bianca begins to remember the whole truth, Kendall starts to leave to have Livia change her plea to guilty. Erica stops Kendall from leaving. As Erica and Kendall exchange words, Bianca remembers pulling the trigger. "I did it, Mom. I murdered Michael," Bianca confesses. Bianca questions how she could have failed to remember before now. She remembers Michael coming toward her laughing and telling her she will do whatever he says for the rest of her life before she pulls the trigger that forever silences him. Erica thinks Bianca is sacrificing for her, but the truth has to come out. "I don't really understand. Are we helping each other or are we tearing each other apart?" Erica laments. Kendall begs Bianca not to confess in court. Bianca realizes Kendall has known the truth all along.
Tad interrupts with a waitress witness from the Golden Coach Diner. Alise Baylor stayed late just to wait on Erica because she recognized her. Alise can provide proof that Erica came into the diner around 11:30 and was there until 2 a.m. Alise's married boyfriend was there too, so there's no doubt about Erica's now unwanted alibi. Tad doesn't understand why Erica is not more thrilled to hear she's off the hook. Erica tells him to send a bill and asks him to leave saying, "Please, Tad, I just need to speak with my daughters in private."
Reggie proclaims Erica's innocence to Jack. Jack demands to know how Reggie knows she's innocent and that he tell him what he's holding back. After Jack is interrupted by Mary looking for Greenlee and Tad telling him about Erica being less than thrilled over the alibi he found, he starts to go to the room where Erica, Kendall, and Bianca are holed up. Reggie stops him. He has to tell him something first. "I need your help. We all do . . . Dad, she didn't mean to kill him. I swear she didn't mean to do it," Reggie professes to Jack.
In the courtroom hallway, Opal overhears Adam telling Palmer that Erica thought he was Michael when she shot him in the shoulder. Opal realizes Palmer and Adam have been working together to protect her best pal and thinks there is hope for the Chandler-Courtland feud to finally be over. Adam and Palmer good-naturedly disagree.
Anita takes Maria to the bar where she and Edmund shared their first dance. Anita convinces her she is an adult and gets Maria to share her concerns. Maria asks Anita to discourage Edmund from the surgery if she gets the chance.
As Edmund lays unsuccessfully willing his legs to move, Brook brings him a foot-tall pile of research, most of which is not encouraging. Since Brooke cannot dissuade Edmund from having the surgery, she shares the plus side of Marshall's pioneering techniques. There is a case study where the patient beat the odds and made an exceptional recovery.
After Tad leaves, Bianca says, "See, Mom. It wasn't you. And it wasn't Kendall either." Bianca's flashbacks continue until she remembers everything. As Bianca recalls details of the murder scene, Kendall and Erica try to convince her she could have gotten those ideas from the press or from previously being in the condo. With tears rolling down her cheeks, Bianca declares, "No, Kendall! I was there. I saw a woman with dark hair wearing a black jacket. She was in the shadows. She had a gun. She went into Michaels' condo. She shot him. She killed him. All this time I thought I was seeing you, Mom. But I was wrong. I was seeing myself. It was me."
Going to Bianca, Erica lovingly straightens Bianca's hair as she tenderly and tearfully says, "Kendall, Michael Cambias stole time from Bianca and me . . . the pain is too deep to remember or relive. But you know what we've blocked, don't you? That's why you've done all you've done. Give us back those fragments that we've lost. We need to know what happened in them."
"Why? Why not just forget it and never think about it again?" Kendall stumbles. Erica reminds Kendall that she tried that with her and also of how much Kendall wanted to be a part of the legacy of the Kane women. Erica pleads, "Please, please don't let us be a house divided by lies and secrets. Please, as much as we want to protect each other, now is the time for the truth to come out. It's our only hope for the future. The truth, Kendall. All of it. Now," Erica finishes and steadies herself to hear the truths she can barely bear.
Shakily Kendall starts sharing the truth she prayed would never come out. "I love you, Bianca, and I think I would have killed for you, but I didn't," Kendall begins. Kendall tells about hearing the shots, running into the courtyard, and seeing the lady with the black jacket with a gun in her hand. "It was you, Bianca," Kendall confirms. "All I wanted to do was protect you." Kendall tells them Reggie knows too because he ran to Michael's when he woke up that night and Bianca was gone. Reggie helped Kendall clean up the blood and move the body. Since all Bianca remembered the next morning was ditching the gun, Reggie and Kendall thought it best to leave it that way. Bianca begs Kendall's forgiveness because Kendall took all the blame even though she knew the truth from the start. As they embrace, Kendall assures her there is nothing to forgive.
Jack comes into the room. "I did it, Uncle Jack. I did it," Bianca tells him. "I know" is Jack's pained response. "What now?" Bianca asks him. Everyone is letting Bianca's confession sink in as Tad sticks his head in the door to let them know Judge Lampbert is ready to render her decision. Jack tells Bianca not to do anything until they hear the ruling. A mistrial changes everything, Jack reminds them all.
Judge Lampbert declares a mistrial and dismisses court. Bianca hugs Kendall and tells her she's got her life back as Kendall glances hopefully at Ryan sitting in the back row. Kendall tells Bianca that all they have to do now is walk away. Bianca wants to know how it works and if Kendall will be retried. Jack tells Bianca that's not very likely. Unable to stand the deceit, Bianca stops Judge Lampbert from leaving the courtroom. "Wait. I have to tell you. I did it, Your Honor. I killed Michael Cambias," Bianca confesses.
Maria was not happy to see Brooke and they argued outside Edmund's hospital room about Brooke's research help for Edmund. Maria warned her to stay away from Edmund, for good. Brooke tried to defend Edmund and his right to make his own choices, but Maria wouldn't hear it. Brooke's jaw dropped as Maria ordered hospital security to keep Brooke away from Edmund. Dr Joe was concerned about Maria's actions, but Maria tried to tell him everything was under control. Dr Joe was adamant that she take some time off for herself right away.
Anita came to see Edmund and reminded her that Maria is one of the best doctors and said she agreed that the surgery is a bad idea. Edmund asked her to tell Maria this isn't a death wish, it's a chance to walk again. Anita said it's Maria's future too and she can't say anything. Anita said she's on family leave from work. Edmund asked about Bobby; Anita was vague but Edmund guessed there might be trouble. When Anita left, Edmund called Dr Marshall to schedule the surgery.
Greenlee saw a vision of herself, as a happier and better person. The other Greenlee took out her old diary and read the long-term goals for a glamorous career, romantic life, cool mom, gourmet chef and great parties and told Greenlee there's a reason she never got what she wanted, because she's a bitch. The other Greenlee reminded her she'd done something horrible, but for good reasons and to protect someone she loves. She said people only think the worst of Greenlee because that's the only side they see. She also said if Greenlee wants to find true happiness, she shouldn't shut her better half out. Greenlee got mad and threw a rock at her alter ego and the walls started to collapse around her.
The judge gently told Bianca she has a right against self-incrimination and urged her to leave with Jack and Livia. Bianca admitted again to the killing and insisted on staying, saying she has to be punished for what she did. The judge continued to urge her to be quiet until she speaks with counsel. Bianca made a speech about truth and justice and told the packed courtroom about her fears and her gratitude for all their help and protection. She apologized to Kendall and especially thanked her for her love and support and asked for Erica's forgiveness. Kendall hugged her and Bianca realized that Kendall would never have told the truth. Bianca then took off her coat, showing her pregnant self and admitting she's the one carrying Michael's baby. Everyone listened raptly as Bianca told a tale of strength, love and courage and wanting to raise her child to not be afraid. Erica stood stiff and Reggie and Lena hugged Bianca. Bianca thanked David for saving her child more than once and thanked Ryan as well. The judge offered guidance and Jack, Erica, Reggie, Kendall and Bianca followed her to meet with the prosecution. In chambers, Bianca told the judge that she'd found out she was pregnant the day Michael was released. She explained it was too hard to think about pressing charges again and she thought there was another way to get Michael out of town. When she saw Reggie's gun, she thought she could carry it in her purse and feel safe enough to go see Michael. She went to his condo and told him she is pregnant. As Michael laughed, she told him he had to leave town, or she'd re-file the rape charges, with proof this time. He tried to touch her and said both he and the baby would be rich, based on the codicil to his father's will. Michael told her he'd tell the court it was consensual sex and the court would believe him because she planned to keep the baby. He was totally smarmy and said he'd own the child too. Bianca tried to get away, but he stopped her, pushed her down on the sofa and started to undress, saying he'd repeat their first time. Bianca pulled the gun out and threatened to shoot if he moved toward her. Michael reached for the gun and told her she would do what she was told, for the rest of her life. Bianca pulled the trigger and Michael went down and she ran out.
Livia said it was clearly self-defense and Alan Singer said it was clearly premeditated murder. They argued all the legal points...Erica finally said that if Bianca is put on trial, she will continue to confess to the murder herself. The judge said she believed Bianca's story. Alan Singer said he'd issue a statement that no charges would be filed against Bianca but warrants would fly for everyone else involved. Kendall, Bianca and Reggie shared their happiness that it was finally over. Jack looked on, wondering where Erica had gone.
Bianca went back to the courtroom to tell everyone the good news and they were all relieved for her. Kendall tried to talk to Ryan, but he saw Greenlee in her place.
Jack found Erica at home, staring out the window, drinking. She didn't respond when he talked to her.
In the courthouse Kendall walked over to Ryan. Ryan had a flash of Greenlee and thought Kendall was her. He quickly realized it was Kendall and asked where Greenlee was. Kendall had no idea and asked if he thought she had done something to her. He didn't deny it and Kendall stormed away. Bianca joined Ryan and they sat on a bench. Bianca told Ryan that Kendall does love him and that he loves her but this was just too much for them to get through. Ryan told her she has better things to worry about than him and Kendall. Bianca thanked Ryan for all he did for her and her sister. Ryan handed her a phone number, telling her "They will always know how to contact me, if you ever need me." Bianca said he didn't have to leave town but Ryan said there was nothing to stay for. He had a flash of Greenlee calling to him. Bianca said goodbye to him and went back inside the empty court room. She stood alone for a moment and then Lena and Maggie came in. They tried to get her to leave but she said she couldn't leave yet, she had "to find it." Lena told her everybody knows she's the strongest and bravest of women. Maggie asked if she was ready to go and Bianca said she had to do something for her and her baby. Bianca had Maggie and Lena take her to Michael's condo. They stood outside the door and Bianca insisted on going in alone, to prove to herself that it was all over. She stood inside the dark condo and relived the last moments of Michael's life. As she heard the gunshot in her mind, she turned and saw Michael sitting on the floor. She told him he couldn't trick her anymore because she knew he wasn't really there. "I'm a survivor, You have no power over me or my baby." Michael just sat on the floor and smiled at her. "Say goodbye Michael! Get out of my life!" Bianca said as Michael got up and came towards her. As he got closer she repeated "Get out of my life!." When she looked again, he was gone. Maggie and Lena came in and she told them he was truly gone. "I thought I'd see him in every dark corner for the rest of my life but I made him leave! I'm free!" she told her friends. They all hugged and walked out of the condo. Bianca stood at the door and said she never wanted to see this place again, and shut the door.
Erica stood staring out the window with a glass of wine in her hand. Jack was very worried about her but she said she was fine, "I'm not going to prison and neither are my daughters! This deserves a toast!" Jack was almost speechless as she poured a drink for him and held out the glass to him. He took both glasses from her and sat them down, saying he wanted to talk about what had happened in court. Erica claimed to be "refocusing" and that she is ready for uncharted territory and wants a new challenge. Jack didn't believe her but she said today had turned out better than they hoped. Jack confronted her and said she wasn't fine, and she needed to deal with this. She said the only thing she was feeling was relieved and determination to deal with everything responsibly. Jack agreed but said he was only making it moment to moment. He took her by the hands, saying he loved her more than ever and brought her hands up to kiss them. He noticed the engagement ring was still not on her finger and asked "We are still getting married, aren't we?" Erica took her hands away and started to mumble an answer when the doorbell rang. Kendall came in, worried about her mother. She told Erica that Bianca was hoping to talk to her. Erica said there wasn't much to talk about. Then she told Kendall that she signed Enchantment over to her because she was looking to do something different. Kendall told her to take some time to consider this but Erica insisted that she was her daughter and should be the one to run the company. Erica said she'd been thinking about starting her own clothing line and wanted to go to Milan to check out the fashions. She headed toward the phone to get travel arrangements but Kendall asked "Can't Europe wait? What about Bianca and the baby?" Erica stopped and asked if Bianca was ok. Kendall said Bianca was dealing with alot and wants her mother around. Jack agreed and said the baby was due in just a few weeks, she'd want Erica there for her. Erica said "She, and all of you, have proved you can get along fine without me." Kendall said they were just trying to protect her. Erica went into a lecture on Kendall and Ryan, that she should have trusted Ryan over Greenlee, she should have risen above Greenlee's petty jealousy to see the love Ryan had for her. "But now you've lost the best man you'll ever know." Erica then said she needed to go to bed and ushered Kendall out the door. When she turned back Jack said "That was something to behold. All that talk about what Ryan did for Kendall was really about what I didn't do for you." Erica said she wasn't in any shape for this but Jack said he wasn't going anywhere until they talked this out. Erica said she was too tired, poured another drink and went into her bedroom, shutting the door on a very bewildered Jackson.
In the mineshaft Greenlee got up after the debris settled down. She was afraid this was the end for her but then hallucinated a hole in the wall. She looked through it and said "I'm safe!" She thought she was lying in a beautiful garden, in a gorgeous white dress. She found some fruit and began to eat. She wondered where she was and Ryan appeared. She was thrilled to see him and said this is what happiness looks like, but it was the last thing she deserved. Ryan disagreed with her and asked if she was sorry for hurting so many people. She said yes. Ryan then asked what she was most afraid of. Greenlee said "Of becoming invisible." Ryan said "You're not, I see you!" Greenlee grinned happily as Ryan handed her a beautiful box, saying that all she needed to be truly happy was in the box, "The secret of love." Greenlee was overjoyed and asked if she opened the box then the one thing she always wished for would be hers? Ryan told her yes and she turned to try to open the box. But it was locked and when she turned back to Ryan to ask for the key he was gone. She cried out "Ryan don't leave me!" as she returned to her reality in the dark mine shaft.
In his apartment Ryan remembered telling Greenlee he was her secret weapon and would always be there for her. He started out the door but was surprised to find Kendall. She walked in as he heard Greenlee's voice say "Don't leave me!." Kendall told him she had something to say that couldn't wait. Ryan handed her the keys to the apartment saying he always knew this place would be hers. She tried to get him to stay but Ryan walked out. Kendall sat on the steps and remembered just a few months ago when they decorated the place with pinecones and how happy they were. She stood up and said "You can't leave me again Ryan, I won't let you!!" as she walked out the door.
Ryan rode his motorcycle out to the falls one last time. He talked out loud to Leo, saying how he hated this place because it reminded him that Leo was gone. Then he started talking about Greenlee, about how complicated she is but that all she needs is love. "But she did me in good this time. Nothing to keep me in Pine Valley now" he said as he turned to go back to his bike. But he stopped when he heard Greenlee's voice saying "Ryan don't leave me!" He turned and looked toward the mine shaft.
Kendall's suggestion that she and Ryan give another try at romance is met with apprehension as Ryan points out her lack of trust.
He later returns to the rocks and, realizing that Greenlee might be trapped inside the mineshaft, moves the boulder, freeing her. Rattled by her encounter with Ryan, Kendall crashes her car near David's cabin and falls sobbing into his arms.
Curious as to what kind of money he can get out of Babe, Paul refuses Adam's offer. When Paul tells Krystal that he left the test results with Joe, he gets a firm warning not to betray Babe. JR asks Jamie to join him at the hospital to find out what the paternity test has to reveal.
Tad rifles through Krystal's room, looking for the documents that he knows will somehow incriminate Babe. Krystal walks in on him, but he gets himself out of the jam by charming the socks off her. In the process, he spots the documents that prove that Babe's marriage was never annulled.
After Ryan found Greenlee in the mine shaft, he took her to an abandoned cabin. While she dozed in and out of consciousness, she told him about her dreams and even suggested he leave her behind to return to his life at Pine Valley. She even told him about her promise to God and if He let her live, she would be a nice, sweet girl. Ryan was beyond shocked to hear that she was thinking of someone other than herself, so he immediately called a doctor to come see her. While they waited for the doctor, Greenlee asked if Kendall was sentenced to the death penalty, and when Ryan told her she was free, Greenlee seemed genuinely relieved and happy. The doctor examined Greenlee and gave Ryan some medicine for Greenlee. Ryan tells her that he threw the ring down the shaft and then sealed it with the rock but had no idea she was inside. Greenlee told him that she was calling him and asked he if he heard her. Ryan said that he did hear her because all the time she was gone, she kept popping in his head. He told her he was on his way out of town, when he realized she was in trapped in the shaft.
Kendall fell asleep at David's home, with a bottle of empty gin next to her. When she woke up with a hangover, she immediately panicked, thinking that her and David had done something the night before. David reassured her that nothing happened between them and she slept on the couch the entire night. She thanked David for taking care of her and then tells him that her relationship with Ryan is over. David told Kendall that he is done with women and relationships. They briefly talk about his relationship with Erica and when Kendall asked him if her and David could ever fall in love, David told her the only love they share is their love for Bianca.
Jamie went to Joe Martin's office, where he ran into Anita. He assumed that Anita was Joe's new Executive Assistant and tried to persuade her to let him see the paternity test, which he thought were in Joe's inbox on his desk. Anita told him that she heard the rumors about Tad the Cad and Jamie joked that someone should have warned her about him as well. Joe walked in and asked Jamie why he was so early for the appointment. When Jamie fumbled with an answer, he told him to come back later. Once Jamie was gone, Joe asked Anita if he tried to find out anything about the paternity test from her. She told him no and then handed him her application for a physician's assistant job. Joe told her he would contact Human Resources and set up an interview for her. Anita thanked him happily and left, where she ran into Jamie, who was looking at the newborn babies. They talk about their interest in children.
That morning, Babe seemed cheerful, as JR wondered downstairs and Adam lurked in the corner. She offered him a cup of coffee with "World's Best Dad" written on it, which immediately upset him. He thought it was another ploy to try to convince him he is the daddy of her baby. Babe ignored his nasty words and told him that when he sees the baby, all of his ugly Adam traits will diminish and he will stop saying hateful things to her. JR was still skeptical and confirmed that he would be at Joe's office that morning to hear the results of the test. JR handed her back the mug, making a remark that she might want to save it for Jamie. Babe got upset, threw the cup on the floor, and rushed out. Adam sneaked in when Babe left and verbally trashed her to JR. He also told JR that he will always support him, no matter what happens and will always be grateful that JR was there for him when Adam faced going to prison. Adam and JR agree to meet at Joe's office and then JR imagines the perfect life with his son and wife.
Tad woke up and immediately tried to search for the sheet of paper tucked under Krystal's mattress. Krystal realized that he wasn't trying to be frisky and immediately got out of bed, throwing a fit. She threw the necklace back at him and told him that she was hurt. She actually thought he wanted to be with her, but all he really wanted was to find out dirt on Babe. Tad admitted that he was looking for dirt on Babe and tried to seduce Krystal back into bed, but she pushed him away. She told him she would not be used by any man and when she opens the door to leave, Simone is waiting. Krystal told Simone that she can have Tad, and headed to Joe's office. Tad retrieved the paper under the mattress, only to find a betting pool for the Oscars! Simone confronted Tad about sleeping with Krystal. She asked him how it would help him with Jamie. Tad told her that whatever secret Babe has must directly affect Jamie and JR somehow. Seeing that Simone was upset, Tad suggested they end their relationship until things got sorted out with Krytal, but Simone said no. She told him that when he is done with his mission, he can come back to her. Simone and Tad searched through Krystal's bedroom, searching for the dirt. When Simone got angry and complained about being used by Tad and he told her that she knew the extent to their relationship when they got involved. She threw a black vase at him, which managed to miss his head, but not the wall. When it broke, Tad found the annulment paper stashed inside!
When Babe got to the hospital, she ran into Paul and asked him about the results. He told her that he did fly them over to Pine Valley, but she would have to wait to find out the results when JR did. She went to Joe's office, where she ran into Jamie. He told her that if the baby is his, she doesn't have to include him in the package and apologized for hurting her feelings. Babe was surprised by his caring attitude and even let him touch her belly when the baby kicked. Krystal arrived and asked to speak to Babe alone. Krystal wanted to make sure Babe was ok and shortly after, Adam and JR arrive. Joe comes in and pulls the results out of his jacket, ready to read the results.
