At Vicky's Place, Vicky told Etta Mae about what happened at Lila's and is puzzled by Matt's involvement with Lila. Suddenly it hits Vicky and she tells Etta Mae that Lila has been spreading a little southern comfort out to Matt. Etta Mae agrees and Vicky told her that Lila would have pulled every dirty trick in the book to get Shane, including trapping him into a pregnancy. She finishes by telling Etta Mae that Shane would never have touched Lila, so that is where Matt comes in, Matt was the donor. Etta Mae told Vicky not to worry whether Lila's baby was Shane's or Matt's and to worry about how to get Jake back. Vicky says she doesn't see how wasting time on something that won't happen will do any good. Etta Mae told Vicky that with that attitude she'll never get Jake back. Etta Mae says that Vicky should tell Jake how she saved him by handing Shane's estate over to Lila. Vicky says she can't go see Jake, especially not at the Herald. Etta Mae eventually persuades Vicky to go see Jake and she wishes her luck.
At Grant's Penthouse, Jake was there to warn Grant to stay away from Vicky and to distract him while Gary sneaks into his place to put the tape back into the trash. Outside the Penthouse, Jake has Grant in a chokehold until Grant elbows Jake in the gut to free himself from Jake's hold. Grant was about to go back inside, but Jake knows Gary was still inside so he stalls Grant some more by telling him his visitation days are the only days he wants to hear about Grant being at Vicky's. Grant told Jake he thought Jake didn't care about Vicky any more. Jake told him just because he's moved out doesn't mean that he doesn't care and his problems with Vicky are none of Grant's business. Grant told Jake that it's too bad that he couldn't hold on to his wife, but he will see Vicky wherever and whenever he wants to because they share a son. A bond that Jake and Vicky will never have. After hearing that Jake has a flashback to him and Vicky at the park discussing having a baby. Grant snaps him out of it by telling Jake that he knew Jake would never be able to satisfy Vicky. As they continue arguing Gary slyly slips back out of Grant's place and once his friend was clear out of shot, Jake told Grant he's not worth it and lets him go.
Over at the Hideout, A frightened Paulina decides to take Dante faraway where no one will find them. Later when she was sleeping, she has a nightmare about the night of the fire and imagines hearing Dante crying. Spooked, Paulina pops up out of her sleep and runs to the crib to check on a peacefully sleeping Dante. Relieved that it was only a dream, Paulina vows that no one will ever take Dante away from her, no one.
At home, Joe steps out of the shower dripping wet and after wrapping a towel around himself, enters his room and was startled to find Cindy sitting there in a chair. Cindy told Joe that she heard he was looking for her. She then tells him that she knows where Paulina was hiding at. Joe ask her how long has she known this. Cindy told him since the beginning, adding that Paulina needed some where to hide and she was the only one Paulina could turn to. Joe tells her that he was on his way to meet with her until Cindy intervened and then threatens to run her in for aiding and abetting. Cindy told Joe that he can threaten her all he wants, but the truth of the matter was that if he ever wants to see his wife and son again he will listen to her. Joe told her to start talking. Cindy told Joe that she wants the tape. Joe plays dumb, but Cindy told him she knows he has it and if he doesn't turn it over to her and drop the charges against Grant he will never see Paulina and Dante again. Joe tells her she has got to be kidding, Paulina was the only friend that she has and this was how you repay her with blackmail. Cindy told Joe that she cares about Paulina and wants her to be happy and she will tell him where Paulina is, but she doesn't want Grant to go to jail. Joe yells at her that Grant burned down his house and almost killed his wife and son and now she has the nerve to ask him this. Cindy says that the fire was just an accident and Grant has changed. Joe told her that Grant hasn't changed, Grant was Grant and the next time he wants something he will stoop to great lengths to get it like he always does. He then asks Cindy why she was going out on a limb for Grant. Cindy told him that she loves Grant as much as he loves Paulina. Joe still can't forget that Grant almost killed his wife and son, but Cindy says that Grant was torn up about that and was sorry. Cindy points out that Paulina almost killed Kirkland, Grant's only son and that's Joe's anger for Grant is equal to Grant's anger at Paulina. Joe says that Paulina didn't mean to hit Kirkland, but Grant meant to hurt his family as a part of some scheme and Cindy can't compare the two incidents. Cindy asks Joe why not, and then tells him it was an accident and she will not stand by and watch her husband lose everything. Cindy then told Joe that they can stand here and argue forever, but the fact was Paulina was leaving the country tomorrow; so either Grant goes free or Joe will never see his wife and son again.
At B.C.P.D., Gary and Jake show up and Josie asks them how did it go. Gary tells Josie how Jake successfully distracted Grant so Gary could replace the tape in Grant's trash-can.

Jake adds that he can't wait to see their esteemed Mayor behind prison bars. Gary agrees, and Jake told them he has to go. Gary asks him doesn't he want to be there when they bring Grant in, but Jake told him he needs to get to the Herald to set things up for tomorrow's headline story starring Grant. As Jake leaves, Gary grabs Josie up and hugs her with Joy, glad that after all these years they will finally have Grant where they want him. Secretly, Josie's gets worried that Gary was getting too invested in revenge against Grant. Gary told her he just can't wait for the whole world to see what kind of a real bastard Grant is. Josie told him that getting Paulina to come back home was the important thing, but her statement falls on deaf ears to an over-zealous Gary. Just then Joe arrives with Cindy in tow. Upon seeing this Gary taunts Cindy about ratting Grant out and saving her own neck. Cindy says nothing and just follows Joe into his office. As Joe hands Cindy the tape, Gary was peering through the blinds outside the office watching in utter disbelief as Joe hands their evidence over to the suspects wife. He then rushes in screaming nooo! and asks Joe what was he doing. As Cindy tells Joe to burn the tape. Josie follows behind Gary to also see what was going on.

Josie told Gary that this isn't about Grant, it's about Paulina. Joe burns the tape and Cindy calls Paulina and claims to be coming over with the passports and airline tickets. Cindy keeps her word and gives Joe the address where Paulina is staying. Joe told her it had better be on the level and heads off. Gary is freaked out that Grant has gotten away again, but Josie told him it's more about Paulina than Grant. She then told him she has to go call Jake and have him put a halt on the story. Gary told her Jake isn't going to be anymore happy about this latest news than he is.

He then tells her he was the unfit parent, not her. Vicky says she just doesn't know if she can trust him and Grant told her she doesn't understand. Vicky told him she can understand what it feels like to do something so awful that you can't forgive yourself.

Grant told her that McKinnon was a fool and then told Vicky that he wouldn't blame her if she refused to let him see Kirkland, but if given the chance he will do what was best for him.
