Annie confidently assumes she's finally about to get the goods on Olivia and expose her as a murderer. As Maria, Antonio and Gabi look on, a tearful Carmen tries to reveal the terrible secret to Ricardo but realizes at the last minute that she cannot cause a rift between her sons. Bette begins to wonder why Olivia practically jumps out of her skin every time the phone rings. Sara icily advises Meg to turn to her own fiancee for comfort once in a while instead of always running to Casey with her troubles. Gregory promises his delighted daughter he's working to overturn her confession and should have her home with Trey before nightfall. Denying that she's made any crank calls to Olivia, Annie bitterly suggests to Bette that she owes her niece some family loyalty. Amy brags to Brad how she's conned Sean into being her partner for the extreme sports competition. Upon finding a certain handkerchief on the floor of her living room, Olivia shrieks to A.J. that Francesca is still alive. Meg is stunned to hear Sara accuse Casey of being in love with her sister.

As Caitlin returns home, Gregory promises his daughter she'll soon be completely off the hook for Francesca's murder. Meanwhile, A.J. tries to convince an hysterical Olivia that she's mistaken about Francesca still being alive. Though Meg lashes out at her, Sara bitterly refuses to retract her remarks about Casey being in love with her sister. Carmen slips into the bride's room and hands Gabi an envelope. Ricardo confides to his siblings his concern that their mother will try to stop the wedding. Facing off with Annie yet again, Gregory icily informs his fuming wife that he cares more about Spike the dog than he does about her. Later, Gregory accuses Annie of breaching his security safeguards at the office. Gabi is relieved to think that her future mother-in-law has had a change of heart and has come to make peace. Shocked when Carmen suddenly spits out her hatred, Gabi shakily insists that nothing will prevent her from marrying Ricardo. A.J. urges Olivia to trust him, then suddenly blurts out that he loves her. Tess gleefully reports to Maria that Meg is moving out of Ben's place for a while. Carmen shows a horrified Gabi the photo of her making love with Antonio.
