At the Beacon Hotel
Alan met with Edmund to plan Alex's downfall. Alan said his sister had a sensational appetite for scoundrels and this was why she would fall in love with Edmund. Alan explained that Alex fell in love with a musician and his father put an end to it. That was why Alex was so guarded and careful and became attracted to men that are safe. But then she fell in love with a man that was capable of fighting for her. Alan said when it came to love Alex was as naive as a 12 year old. He suggested that Edmund charm her to win her over. Edmund agreed to accept the challenge. Alan wanted him to distract her and catch her off guard.

Edmund told Alex that he missed her very much. She wanted to know why he stayed in Springfield and he reminded her that the rest of family was there. Edmund said she was a very important part of his plan. He said he expected her to fall madly in love with him. He told her he was different than any other man she had been with.

Phillip told Olivia they have to do something to stop Alexandra. Olivia was afraid that Alan would find out about the tape. Olivia wondered what would happen if she showed Alan the tape. Olivia said she could tell Alan it was wedding jitters. Phillip said that might give him another heart attack. Phillip said he knew she was trying to be a good wife to his father and he respected her for that. He decided to call Dr. Pierce to get a second opinion. If Dr. Pierce gave Alan the green light, they will show him the tape. As Olivia was leaving she ran into Alan.

At the Beacon Hotel
Edmund admitted to Alex that Alan was paying him to fall madly in love with her. Edmund made the statement that Alan underestimated her. When Alex asked how much Alan was paying him, he showed her the amount. Edmund suggested she take the number and double it.

Alex wanted to know how it worked. Edmund said they pretend to be intimate and in turn Edmund would tell her anything she needed to know. Alex showed him a number she could afford. Edmund said that was good enough. Alex doesn't want him to fall madly in love with her and get hurt. They had a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Alex said she needed to leave.

Cassie tried to get Danny to move. Cassie suggested they go down in the second wine cellar since it wasn't used much. Once they were in the cellar, Cassie had Danny drink some water. Cassie ran into the bartender who was getting some wine. Cassie told him that this cellar was off limits from now on because of the asbestos. She wanted him to inform the other employees. Bartender exits. Cassie returned to Danny. He was gasping for breath. She began to put the bandages on his wound. Danny told Cassie he did it to keep Michelle and Robbie safe. Cassie gave Danny one of the antibiotics. He became delirious and thought Cassie was Michelle. He told her he loved her and he did it all for her. Cassie pretended to be Michelle and told him they would get through it together. Danny began shivering and Cassie covered him. Still thinking Cassie was Michelle, he begged her to not leave. She lay beside him to keep him warm.

At Cedars hospital
Alan tried to call Dr. Kirby to ask if the other doctor could discover he faked his heart attack. When Olivia walked in he was on the telephone, so he said that Allied Tech had taken a nosedive. Olivia reassured Alan that Dr. Pierce was a good physician. Olivia asked him to do this examination for her. Alan agreed. Olivia exits.

Alan wanted to know why they were doing so many tests. Olivia said there were no records of any tests. Alan called Alex and told her to get to Cedars immediately. He told her that Olivia and Phillip were getting a second opinion. Alex said she would be there shortly. She let him know she was with Edmund and Alan called him a swine. Alan continued to insist they wait for Dr. Kirby, but Olivia was persistent. Alan rolled up his sleeve to give some blood. Olivia approached Alex to let her know that she wasn't needed. But Alex said that Alan called her.

Ed told her that Robbie had an ear infection. Ed refused to let Carmen hold Robbie. Ed reminded her that Michelle and Danny gave up their happiness so that they could be safe. Carmen said he was all she had left. Carmen said he had nerve to talk about her when he also left his family. But Ed said she wasn't getting near Robbie.

At the Gym
As Father Ray was working out, Tony reminded him that there was no sign of Danny. Ray said there was no redeeming of Carmen. Tony realized that Ray knew something. Ray said if Carmen confessed he couldn't say anything. Tony begged him to tell what Carmen said. Ray said it wasn't easy for him either and he loved Danny too. Tony wanted to know why he was talking in the past tense. Marah enters. Marah said she wanted to make sure he was ok.

She wanted to know if they had heard anything about Danny. Tony said from now on he wanted the truth. Tony said that someone may have heard something, but they were not telling. Marah said she wanted to be there with him. Ray told them to leave and he would call them if there were any news. Ray had a flash back and remembered that Carmen had confessed to shooting Danny.

At the Beach
Almost in tears, Tony asked Marah where Danny was. He wanted to know if Danny was alive. He wished Danny would have trusted him, but Marah said that Danny wanted to protect him. Tony said everyone he ever loved had died on him. Marah said, "Not everyone." Marah said that Michelle thought Danny was out of town on business. He said Michelle probably would want to know about Danny. Marah agreed they should tell her. Marah said she would go with him if he wanted her to. They replied that he wanted her to go with him.

Danny woke up and recognized Cassie. In his attempt to explain what happened he lead her to believe Michelle is the one who shot him. She left to try to find someone to help. Cassie saw Carmen in the lobby of The Beacon and told her they need to talk about Danny but was interrupted by Edmund. While Carmen and Edmund had not-so-friendly words, Cassie heads back down to the wine cellar to tend to Danny. She told Danny she's going to tell Carmen what has happened to him and he informed her that she's the one who did it. By this time, Carmen was looking for Cassie to see what she had to say about Danny.

Edmund confronted Reva in the lobby of the hotel and told her that when she gets sent back to jail, Cassie will be joining her for forging the Living Will. Reva questioned him on why he things it is a fake and how he knows so much about the Will. When Edmund left, Reva found Cassie in the lobby and questioned her about the Living Will.

Tony and Marah agreed that Michelle needed to know Danny is missing but when they arrived to tell Michelle, Billy was there. Michelle told Tony that she's afraid of Carmen but Tony assured her he will "take care of Carmen." Tony and Marah left without telling Michelle.
