When Cass tries to get information on Lila, the hospital refuses to give him
any information because he's not a relative. He walks into the CEO's office

Wednesday, July 15
Matt carried Lila into his apartment. He didn't want her to walk or do much
of anything else for that matter since the doctor labeled Lila's pregnancy
"high risk." Much to their surprise, they found Sophia standing in Matt's
apartment ready for a romantic evening. Lila, in her manipulative way,
insisted on leaving Matt and returning to New Orleans. Of course, Matt
declined her offer. Lila tried to convince the tortured couple that she would
only get in the way of any plans they ever try to make. She then stated that
moving in with Matt would never work out. Sophia left the two of them to work
things out and (as usual) was upset. Matt told Lila that someone needs to be
with her 24 hours a day on account of her delicate condition. That was a
service he could not provide. So he took her to a place where they could both
live and she could get round-the-clock attention...The Cory Mansion.
Gary tried his hardest to make Cindy remember where the tape is, but Cindy
couldn't even remember that the tape existed or that Grant was even an evil
Joe and Josie argued about Cindy's whereabouts. Joe knew that Josie knew more
than she was letting on and warned her that both of their jobs were at steak.
He reminded Josie that Gary stood by him when he was trying to trap Grant, so
he would try to do the same. Later, Josie tried to convince Gary to end the
charade of hiding Cindy. She told Gary that this was the last straw. This
put her job in jeopardy long enough. Reluctantly, Gary agreed to Josie's
demands. When Gary walked into Cindy's apartment to tell her that it was
over, Cindy ran over to Gary crying, "I'll remember anything you want just
please, please, please don't ever leave me again."
Scott sent the tracking device to Cameron so that Cameron would know that he
is on to him. When Cameron received the tracking device, he yelled at Holly,
the intern/messenger, trying to find out where he could find Amanda. After
talking with Holly, he knew that Scott had fixed it so that he would not be
able to find Amanda. A desperate Cameron turned to Josie for help.
Scott told Amanda that he changed their plans involving their trip to Chicago.
Amanda said that that was fine as long as they made it to the meeting on time.
Scott told Amanda that he found a tracking device in her purse when she
dropped it. Amanda acted surprised. Scott played along and said he changed
their plans so that Cameron would remain clueless as to their whereabouts.
She was shocked yet pretended to be grateful. Amanda was even more shocked
when Scott told her that they were driving to Chicago instead of flying.
Later he told her that he cancelled her hotel reservations and booked one room
for them at some inn. When Amanda questioned their sharing a room, he
replied, "Isn't that what you wanted?" Of course Amanda said yes. Amanda
tried to look for reasons to call "home." Every time Amanda looked for a
reason to call home, Scott found a logical reason why she shouldn't call home.
His last reason was at the inn. He insisted that she enjoy the view first.
Amanda accompanied Scott over to the window and stood in front of him. Scott
held a long ribbon in his fists, tight, as if he were to strangle someone.
Then, he brought the ribbon, held by his fists, over Amanda's head.
