Jill and Colin listened to records on an old phonograph to put themselves in Shep's shoes. Shep had been Katherine's father. Colin took Jill in his arms to dance, but Lauren interrupted them. Lauren said that she was there to check on Esther. Jill said that Esther was having a very hard time coping with what had happened to Chloe. Jill commented on how much destruction and hurt Adam had caused. Colin lied to Lauren about the reason that he and Jill were looking through Shep's journals.
Jill said that there was no need to lie to Lauren because Lauren was her sister and that, unlike Colin, Lauren was more interested in helping Jill solve the mystery than finding any money. Jill then told Lauren that it appeared that Rachel and Shep had had a romantic connection during World War II. Lauren's phone rang as she showed Jill a journal entry with a reference to "R." The call was from Michael. Lauren said that she had to go to the police station. She asked Jill to let Esther know that she would be back.
After Lauren was gone, Jill stated reading from the journal that referenced "R." Jill and Colin had different interpretations of the passage. She thought that R was a civilian helping the war effort, but Colin suggested that R and Shep had engaged in a wartime romance. Jill jumped on that. She said that made Shep a philanderer and reminded Colin that Jill was the injured party in her relationship with Colin because, unknown to her, he had been involved in money laundering and drug trafficking. Colin replied that he had forgiven Jill for turning him in.
Jill protested that everything Colin had told her was a lie. Colin said that not everything was a lie because he had meant it when he had told Jill that he loved her. Jill asked how Colin could say that he was not interested in the money after he had blackmailed her and made her start the treasure hunt. Colin said that the money was important but had nothing to do with his feelings for Jill. Jill asked if Colin meant feelings of love like Shep and R. Colin said yes. Jill told him that Shep had been a philanderer. Colin asked why Shep had kept the photo, Jill said as a trophy, but Colin countered that it was a reminder of lost love.
Jill started reading the journal. She imagined R as a selfless heroine who stayed behind with a gun, guarding Shep's back as he fled two thugs. Colin said that Shep would never leave his woman behind. Instead, Shep would stay with Rachel and then kiss her and tell her that he loved her. When the thugs entered, Shep would let them take him away to protect Rachel, and she would never see him again. Jill thought that was a terrible story, but Colin said it was romantic because Shep had vowed his love.
Jill said that she would not fall for Colin's smarmy Australian charm, but when he dropped a stack of papers on the floor and both stooped to pick them up, Colin told Jill that he would love her forever, and they shared a steamy kiss. Jill pulled away and slapped Colin. She accused him of taking advantage. He said he had seen an opportunity. Jill told him to get back to work so she could get out of their sham of a marriage. Jill stalked away flustered, but Colin had a great big grin on his face.
Dylan was working on his account books when Avery stopped by Crimson Lights. Dylan told Avery that Leslie was representing Ian Ward. Avery said that everyone was entitled to a defense. Dylan said he just wished that it were not Leslie defending Ian because she was a good enough lawyer to get Ian off, despite Ian's abuse of Nikki and other young women.
Dylan said that he wished that he could go back to before, but Avery said that he could not do that because he would be living a lie, and Avery knew Dylan well enough to know that he would not want to do that. Avery said that Dylan had changed as a result of finding out his true parentage, but she thought that he had changed for the better.
Dylan agreed that he was not sorry that he had learned that Nikki was his mother, but he wished that he had not been responsible for leading Ian into town. Avery pointed out that it had been good for Nikki because she had gotten closure by asserting herself and proving that she could stand up to Ian. Dylan reluctantly admitted that Avery might be correct. Avery also teased Dylan about how well he and Nick had cooperated and shown a "brotherly" bond. Dylan and Avery kissed.
Avery said that it was great that they were a "normal" couple and that they did not have to sneak around. She apologized for not leaving her husband when she had lost Dylan's baby. Avery said that she had been punishing herself. Dylan asked what Avery wanted to do first, since they were a normal couple.
They decided to take a walk in the park to show that they were a normal couple. Dylan stood on a park bench and shouted that he loved Avery. She stood beside him. They kissed, and Avery told Dylan that she loved him too. Suddenly a crowd had gathered around and was cheering them. Avery was thrilled when Dylan said he could get used to normal.
At the police station, Michael and Kevin talked about Chloe and the serious charge of kidnapping that she was facing. Kevin did not understand why Chloe had to remain in jail, but Michael said that kidnapping, especially when the child had been taken to another country, was looked upon very seriously, and since Chloe had also stolen passports, she was considered a flight risk and would have to stay in jail until her trial. Kevin was not happy to learn that there was a very good chance that Chloe would be convicted.
Kevin expected that Chloe would be let free because she had been grieving. Michael said that in that case, she would probably have to spend some time in Fairview. Chloe walked in and overheard. She asked if Michael thought that she belonged in a mental institution. Kevin jumped to Chloe's defense when she asked if Michael thought that she was crazy. Michael said that Chloe had admitted that she needed help, and he added that both Chloe and Kevin had to face the possibility that Chloe might be convicted.
If that happened, Michael said that Chloe would be far better off to do her time in a hospital, rather than prison. Kevin begged Michael to try again for bail and pledged to put up his house or whatever it took to get Chloe out. Chloe thanked Michael for all he was doing and told Kevin that putting up his house was too much. Kevin replied that he had just gotten Chloe back, and nothing would separate them again. Michael left for court.
Chloe said that she was a kidnapper, and she deserved to go to jail. Kevin replied that she was grieving. Chloe said that her grief did not give her the right to take Connor and scare his mother. She said that maybe she did belong in a mental hospital. Kevin insisted that Chloe was not crazy. Kevin said that Chloe had been consumed with grief, and he had been also. Kevin said that he had tried to remain strong for Chloe, but had it not been for the car accident, he would have killed Adam himself.
Chloe apologized for not recognizing that Kevin missed Delia as much as she did. She thanked him for being there for her. Kevin and Chloe hugged.
Lauren met Michael at the police station. He told her that he had asked for bail, but he was not optimistic that it would be granted. Michael said that Chloe's sentence would likely depend on the court-appointed psychiatrist, so even if grief had been the motivating factor, it was likely that Chloe would have to undergo intensive therapy, which, in Michael's opinion, was better than prison.
Lauren told Michael that he was doing the best job that he could under the circumstances, but Michael was not sure that Kevin would agree with Lauren. Lauren saw Kevin and Chloe embrace and told Michael that her heart was breaking for them. Lauren received a phone call and told the caller that she had forgotten and would have to cancel the appointment because of a family emergency.
Lauren explained to Michael that she had booked a family spa day to help them relax from all the stress created by the trouble with Carmine and with Fen's incarceration. Michael told her not to cancel, because as Chloe had learned, people never knew how much time they had to spend with those they loved. Michael convinced Lauren that they would be only a short phone call away if either Chloe or Kevin needed them. A matron took Chloe back to her cell as Kevin watched helplessly.
Chelsea held baby Connor and told him how much she missed Adam. She assured the baby that one day, the bell would ring, and Adam would be standing there. The bell rang. Chelsea called out "Adam" when she opened the door, but it was Anita instead. When asked why she was there, Anita said that she was concerned, and she could see from Chelsea's appearance that Anita was right to be concerned. Chelsea snapped back, but Anita dismissed Chelsea's remarks as misplaced anger.
Anita blamed Chloe, but Chelsea defended her. When Anita said that Chloe should be locked up, Chelsea replied that Chloe had been grieving, had suddenly learned that her best friend's husband had killed her daughter, and had snapped. Chelsea felt no need for retribution and made that clear to Anita.
Anita said that she did want to do a better job with Connor that she had done with Chelsea. Chelsea wondered if it was because of his trust fund. Anita said it was because she loved both Connor and Chelsea. Anita urged Chelsea to give her another chance. Anita encouraged Chelsea to get some rest and let Anita watch Connor. Chelsea said she was not tired. Anita worried because Chelsea had thought that Adam was at the door.
Anita tried to convince Chelsea that Adam was dead, but Chelsea said that until someone showed her a body, she would not believe that Adam was dead. Chelsea declared that she knew that Adam was out there somewhere. Anita tried to convince Chelsea otherwise, but Chelsea showed Anita the door instead.
Chelsea held Connor and told him that his daddy knew how much that they both needed Adam. Chelsea said that there were questions that only Daddy could answer. Then she realized that Billy might also have answers. Chelsea called Billy and told him that she had to see him.
In a sparse, grim room, a man's hand twitched. He was lying in a hospital bed and wearing Adam's ring on his left hand. A blurry figure, which appeared to be dressed in blue hospital scrubs, entered the room. The hand lifted and then fell back on the bed.
