After subtle pressure from Greg and a couple of encounters with Babe and little Adam, Kendall decided to go to Greg's room to tell him that she had made up her mind to give her son up for adoption.

Zach and Kendall continued to talk as they slowly made their way back to Pine Valley.

Jack decided to take Lily back to boarding school in a desperate attempt to keep her away from Jonathan. Lily played along with Jack's plans until she got an opportunity to hide on the train. Thinking Lily got off at an earlier stop, Jack got off the train, not realizing that Lily was still on it and hiding. She ended up in New York City and things didn't go well for her there. Lily was totally unprepared to be on her own in the city without any money.
May 8 to 12, 2006

Dixie and Zach broke into Greg's office on the island and later returned to Pine Valley.
May 15 to 19, 2006
Lily became upset when she saw Jonathan and Aidan. Jonathan spotted Lily as she ran away, so Jonathan and Aiden tried to catch up to her, but Lily managed to slip away. Lily returned to the hotel, where her circumstances became dire when a man that Lily had met talked her into consuming alcohol. Before long, Lily succumbed to the effects of the alcohol. Kendall continued to linger in a coma, but she 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 the doctors out of the room. Kendall heard shots ring out as Derek tried to enter her room. Dixie visited JR, who was being held in jail. JR was unable to raise money for bail because Adam had frozen JR's accounts. Babe contemplated taking Little Adam and running but worried that it would confirm JR's worst fears.
May 22 to 26, 2006
Jonathan found Lily in the nick of time and saved her from being brutally raped by the man who had given her alcohol. Unfortunately, a scuffle ensued and Jonathan suffered a head injury, which later gave him painful headaches. They decided that since Lily was 18, they should get married. JR was released from jail and immediately found Babe. He apologized to her for everything he had put her through since finding out Dixie was alive; he begged Babe to forgive him. He also told her that he had joined a recovery program and needed to have a card signed each time he attended a meeting. Babe was pleased by the news, but reluctant to forgive him right away. Bianca returned to Pine Valley to be at her sister's side. Initially, Erica was thrilled until she discovered that Bianca had not used the opportunity when she was with Zach to convince him to let Kendall have the surgery. Erica was convinced that with the surgery, the baby had a slim chance of living, but without it, Kendall would certainly die. Ryan confessed his love for Kendall to Bianca. He then talked to Zach. He said that he would not force the issue of Kendall's surgery and asked permission to enter the room. Zach let him. Tad used his fists to force Greg to reveal the name of the family who had adopted Kate.
May 29 to June 2, 2006
Greg sent Tad on a wild goose chase looking for Kate so Greg could buy himself some time to slip out of town. Before Greg left, he drugged Erica and stowed her away with the intention of taking her with him when he left town, and he slipped Dale a mickey, to which he succumbed while alone in a warehouse. Babe forgave JR after she saw him take responsibility for his actions, including causing Kendall's injuries. Kendall began to fade and was taken into surgery. Her son, Spike, was born via a cesarean section. Spike was rushed into the neonatal intensive care unit, where he was holding his own. Zach was arrested on various charges related to keeping the doctors from treating Kendall. He was desperate to get out of jail, fearing the worst about Kendall. Jack found Lily and Jonathan just in time to hear the justice of the peace pronounce them husband and wife.

June 5 to 9, 2006
Jack was too late to stop Jonathan and Lily from getting married. JR went to court to face the consequences of his crime against Kendall. Before he left, JR and Dixie had a heart-to-heart talk and reconciled. Kendall emerged from her coma and was happily reunited with Spike, who remained in the neonatal intensive care unit. Greg Madden was missing. It was later revealed that he was buried in a pine box beneath the park's garden. With food, oxygen, water, and light, it was clear that the person who buried him intended for him to stay alive at least for the time being. Soon the person, using a voice changer and recorded message, explained to Greg the terms of his captivity. He was to reveal Kate's whereabouts and after a DNA test confirmed that she was indeed Kate, he would be released. Del blew up Madden's yacht in an effort to keep Madden from using it as an escape route.
June 12 to 16, 2006
Babe came to JR's rescue at the eleventh hour and kept him from going to jail. Kendall slowly recovered, but her anger maintained a strong grip. She demanded that Zach take care of JR while she handled Babe. Jonathan suffered a seizure and was taken to the hospital. He woke up medically fit, but his speech indicated that he no longer suffered the difficulties he had since the brain surgery. He told Erin the truth but reverted to his old speech patterns when Lily saw him. Jonathan told Erin that he felt his "recovery" was a blessing that enabled him to take better care of Lily, but refused to let anyone but Erin know the truth. He intended to remain "impaired" for Lily's sake. In the park, Josh thought he heard his father but was later convinced that it was simply a trick of his imagination. Greg remained buried underground until he divulged Kate's whereabouts. He stubbornly refused to cooperate, even when his health appeared to be failing. Jeff Martin returned to Pine Valley and met Josh. Erica feared that it was not a matter of if but when Jeff would tell Josh the truth.
June 19 to 23, 2006
Josh's attempt to humiliate JR backfired and Josh ended up being suspended from the hospital for two weeks. Jeff considered telling Josh the truth. Terry showed up in Pine Valley looking for his ex-wife, Annie, who had disappeared with their daughter. When he ran through the park during a storm, he happened to see Lily and remembered trying to convince her to have sex with him in NYC. Babe was frustrated and Kendall made it clear that she was very much in control of Fusion. Ryan talked to Zach about the things they'd uncovered about Greg Madden, specifically that he used his own sperm samples during the years of helping women with their fertility problems. Zach told Ryan that as far as everyone was concerned, especially Kendall, there was no possibility that anyone other than Ryan was the father of Spike. JR discovered Babe and Josh on the roof of Fusion during a rainstorm in what appeared to be a romantic moment. Greg began to panic when water started leaking into his coffin.
June 26 to 30, 2006
Terry continued to stalk Lily. Jack was still angry at Erica and didn't bother correcting her when she jumped to the wrong conclusion after she saw him disembark their yacht with Brooke. Erin broke things off with Aidan. JR made a generous offer to assure Krystal that he was a changed man. Greg lingered in the coffin but began to despair of ever getting out. In an effort to put the screws to Greg, Jamie and JR abducted Josh and put him in a walk-in freezer, but Babe soon got wind of the plan and freed Josh. Josh didn't see his abductor but he was certain that Jamie and JR were behind it. The judge dismissed the case against Zach for lack of evidence. Tremors began to rock Pine Valley.

July 3 to 7, 2006
Nearly everyone was a suspect after an earthquake rocked Pine Valley and Greg Madden's body was discovered inside his prison coffin. Josh was convinced that JR was the one responsible for Greg's death and enlisted Kendall's help to try to make JR pay for his crime. Kendall was taken aback when she learned of the theory that Greg was the donor for all the artificial inseminations that he had performed over the years. Colby returned home to her father, but not without controversy. Ryan told Kendall that he loved her and that Zach knew of his feelings.
July 10 to 14, 2006
JR's blackmailer was revealed to be Colby. Babe was shaken after she heard a tape of Greg's last words. Her suspicions that JR was the one who buried Greg alive mounted and, after debating what to do, she had JR listen to the tape. He was stunned by what he heard. Worried that Greg was Spike's biological father, Kendall turned to Josh for help and a DNA test. He was shocked when the results revealed that he shared genetic markers with Spike. Unaware of his biological link to Kendall, Josh broke the news that Greg was Spike's father. Erica was heartbroken when Zach told her that Kendall discovered the secret of Greg fathering at his clinic. Di told Aidan that Erin had moved on with another man. Ryan learned Annie's secret.
July 17 to 21, 2006
JR insisted to Babe that he was being set up for Greg's kidnapping and murder. Babe still had doubts but she set to work trying to figure out who really killed Greg. Her investigation led her to David's home, where she found a transceiver like the one the police claimed was used to communicate with Greg while he was buried alive. Erica was forced to tell Kendall the truth about Josh. Kendall and Ryan decided to have another paternity test run to determine once and for all who Spike's father was. Jonathan confronted Terry about what he did to Lily in New York. Terry denied the allegations, prompting Aidan to call Lily. Lily's reaction upon seeing Terry confirmed Jonathan's accusations. Jamie and Julia were caught in an embarrassing and compromising position. Joe questioned Julia's competence as a nurse, thanks to Josh. Josh decided it was time to leave town and asked Babe to go with him.
July 24 to 28, 2006
The result of the second paternity test for Spike was in. It revealed that Ryan was indeed his father. JR planned to blow Josh's world apart. He asked Krystal to help Babe through the fallout. Musical guest, Rihanna performed her hits "S.O.S." and "Kisses Don't Lie" at ConFusion's grand opening. Josh finally learned the truth about Erica being his mother when Greg's final recording was played for all to hear during the grand opening party. Erica and Kendall tried to talk to Josh, but he was much too shaken up and angry to say much. He stormed out of the party. Babe followed him with the intention of lending a sympathetic shoulder. They ended up on Josh's private jet. Against Babe's wishes, Josh fired up the jet and took off. During the flight, Josh realized that they were low on fuel and that the lights below were out. He radioed to the tower, only to be informed that the airport was closed due to fog. Josh had no choice but to land the plane before they ran out of fuel. Zach and Dixie went to Philadelphia after receiving a clue, but turned up empty-handed. Erin looked for Aidan in the hopes of explaining things to him but when she caught up with him, she saw him and Di in a passionate embrace. Jack heard Jonathan give Erin advice in his normal voice.
July 31 to August 4, 2006
Dixie and Zach were arrested for Greg Madden's murder. Kendall was as certain of Zach's innocence as Tad was certain of Dixie and Zach'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. The three of them formed their own search party. Erin told Aidan the truth about why she ended things and kept the truth about Annie from him. Aidan pointed out that in the end she failed to trust him, and he couldn't get past that.

Jack filed a motion to have Lily declared incompetent. Erica tried to talk him out of going through with his plans. Jonathan was upset that Jack would go to such lengths to break him up with Lily.

Terry continued to terrorize Annie by letting her know that he could reach her and Emma quite easily. Sean Montgomery arrived in Pine Valley and moved in with his uncle Jack. Lily went on the Internet and made a new online friend-who turned out to be Terry.
August 21 to 25, 2006
Kendall warned Dixie not to overstep her bounds with Zach, or Kendall would expose the truth about Dixie's false alibi. David suspected that Emma was actually Dixie's daughter, Kate. JR and David traded words about Dixie. JR was forced to defend his mother's honor when David called her a "whore." A struggle ensued, but David managed to bash JR over the head with a nearby object. JR was rushed to the hospital, unconscious. Josh and Babe went to Philadelphia to meet with a rock star with the hopes he would agree to Fusion using one of his songs during an ad campaign. In the process of convincing the man, Babe and Josh threw back quite a few shooters and ended up drunk. They stayed in the hotel room after the rocker left. Lily continued to IM with Terry, unaware of who he really was. After a while, Terry suggested that they meet in person.

Kendall began to have doubts about Zach's innocence because of questions that Ryan raised. Dixie offered to admit to murdering Greg in exchange for Derek leaving JR, Jamie, and Zach alone. Derek announced that if Tad didn't incriminate Dixie, he'd be sending Tad's sons to prison instead for stealing an incriminating piece of evidence. Jonathan worried about Lily's safety with Terry on the loose. Terry and Lily continued to exchange instant messages. Lily still didn't realize whom she was really communicating with when she made arrangements to meet him in private. Erica and Jack couldn't seem to find any common ground.
