Mia and Hayley ran into the living room to investigate Liza's scream. When Hayley asked her why she screamed, Mia told her to lay off and quit badgering her. Mia led Liza to the couch as Adam entered the room to investigate. Liza explained that she just overreacted because she thought she saw a mouse. Hayley replied that it "could be a rat," as she looked at Mia. Mia offered to make some tea for Liza, and Hayley volunteered to help her. Hayley tried to follow her to the kitchen, but was sidetracked when Mateo and J.R. returned. They weren't talking, though, as Adam caught up with Hayley in the foyer. He asked her why she was still skeptical, and she responded that Liza is keeping something from them, and Mia is helping her. She reminded him about the baby that Liza miscarried and said that she could be having flashbacks about her fall down the stairs, which is why she screamed. Adam discounted it though, as Mia returned with the tea. Adam took the tea and left Mia and Hayley alone. Mia told her that she would answer Hayley's questions in private, so they left to talk. When Mateo and J.R. left Adam and Liza alone in the living room, he asked her if there was something other then a mouse that they should worry about, but she assured him that it was just a mouse.

Frankie broke away from Trey's embrace and asked him who his next victim is. She told him that his pricy suit doesn't hide the fact that he's still a lowlife ambulance chaser. While he defended himself, she accused him of looking for a new lawsuit and asked him what the fire at Erica's will cost. He responded in surprise, "Fire?"

They finished reading Kendall her rights and cuffed her, while she remained speechless. Erica began ripping into Kendall again until Ryan told her to leave her alone. Erica tried to explain that Kendall tried to kill them, but he remained quiet as they led Kendall away. Erica turned to Bianca to apologize for the evil that Kendall was responsible for, but Ryan interrupted her and told her to quit it. He proceeded to defend Kendall, and told Erica that there's no proof that Kendall was responsible. Erica told him that Kendall confessed after he went into the house to save Chris. Ryan shook his head and walked away. Chris told Erica that he booked some rooms at the Valley Inn, and they prepared to leave. Erica checked on Bianca, and Bianca told her that she was going to stay with Jack, so Erica and Chris left. Maggie approached Bianca and tried again to apologize, but Bianca wasn't listening as she left with her uncle.

Outside Chandler Mansion, Mia offered to explain to Hayley why Trey referred to her "scam." Mia told her that she has a past with Trey, and now she's having more personal problems with him, problems she can handle. She said that Trey accused her of scamming the Chandlers because it's probably what he would have done. Mia asked Hayley to trust her, because she showed up at Adam's doorstep at one time and was let in to the family. Hayley didn't respond to Mia's request to trust her, but instead told her she should stay away from Trey.

In the park, Jackson tried to console Bianca about the fire, but she told him that she was sorry for Uncle Jack and the way he looked when he saw Erica and Chris leave. Jackson tried to sidestep it, but she asked him if he will ever get over her. He told her he may never get over Erica, but it isn't Chris that's keeping them apart. He told her that being with him cost Erica custody of Bianca. She told him that Erica can't forgive him, because that would mean she'd have to forgive herself. He switched subjects to the box that Bianca was holding, and she told him she was worried about opening it, because the fire was hot and may have destroyed what was inside. She finally opened it and found that everything had survived: the book of sonnets and a letter from Frankie. Bianca began to cry as Jack comforted her. She told him that Frankie is the one that taught her everything, and she misses her. Jack embraced his niece as they left the park.

Chris led Erica into her room, and she told him how she appreciates all he's done for her. He told her that they can discuss it later, after a nice, hot bath. Later, while sitting in her tub, Chris brought Erica a bottle of sparkling cider to celebrate. He pulled out a package that he had planned to give her on the cruise and told her that he'll let her decide when he gives it to her, but it won't be now. They then toasted to their loved ones, life, and new beginnings. Later, Chris turned down Erica's bed and told her that his bed was waiting next door. Before he left, they kissed next to the bed and Chris told her to whistle if she needs anything. As he walked to the door, she whistled. She told him that he's an FBI agent, and asked him if there's anyone in the room he'd like to investigate. She took off her robe, as Chris replied, "Yes, there is," and walked toward her.

Kendall lay on the cot in her cell when Ryan arrived. He told her that they found her silver-plated lighter at Erica's. She reacted in shock that he thought she did it. She asked him to leave, when Ryan told her that he didn't think she did it. He told her that he doesn't care about the evidence, and he doesn't believe she's capable of hurting someone. She told him that that's called "faith", and he responded, "Yeah, faith." Kendall couldn't believe that Ryan had faith in her, but the guard came to tell them time's up before Ryan could say more. Before he left, however, Kendall asked him if he loved her like she loves him. He responded that he doesn't want to, but....

When Adam took a phone call, he left Liza and Adam alone in the living room. Liza confided in Mia that her vision got distorted when she was walking down the stairs and she almost fell. She told her that she feels that the tumor's coming back. Mia offered to take her to the doctor tomorrow morning, without Adam. Adam walked back in, and Liza told him that everything's fine as she went to bed. With Liza out of the room, Adam told Mia that Liza's never leaned on anyone before like she leans on Mia.

Trey approached Maggie after Bianca left and offered to help her. Maggie ripped into him at first, and told him to leave her alone, but he wouldn't leave. Finally, she told him about Bianca's pass on her and that she misses Frankie. She continued feeling sorry about the fact that she never really knew her sister, and Trey tried to snap her out of it by asking her to go out with him. When she said no, he moved to leave, but she stopped him. She noticed a cut on his arm and told him that a doctor needs to see him first, because it could become infected. Later, a doctor asked him what happened, and Trey told him that he fell off a retainer wall. The doctor told him that it explains the abrasions, "but what that doesn't explain is the burn."

Tad and Brooke return from Zurich and arrive at Brooke's house. Brooke offers to get Tad something. He would rather sit on the couch for a while. Edmund comes down from upstairs and hugs Brooke. Then, he tells Tad that he's sorry about Dixie. Tad excuses himself and goes into the den. Brooke tries to go after him, but Edmund stops her. He feels that Tad needs his space since they've been together since going to Switzerland. An upset Brooke says that Tad doesn't need his space--he needs her. She heads out the room to find Tad.

David sleeps in a chair in his cabin and is awaken by Anna's footsteps. Anna tells him that she was calling him all night, but he didn't answer the phone. He says that he knew, but didn't answer and asks what that tells her. She says it told her what she already knew--that he was rude and inconsiderate. He had nothing to say to her. Anna demands that he say something, otherwise their so-called marriage will not work. David asks her to just leave him alone because he doesn't like to talk about those things. She refuses to leave him alone when he's at war with the world. She asks what their chances are in the future if he can't communicate with her. David asks what he's supposed to do when she can't or feel that he loves her. Anna suggests that he be honest with her. David laughs and comments that she's one to talk about honesty since she's been lying recently. Anna says that the birth control situation wasn't that much of a big deal. David says that now she knows why he wouldn't answer her calls last night. Anna says that he's showing an enormous display of ego. She asks if he expected her to immediately say yes to his suggestion to have a baby and stop taking the pills. David just wanted to agree to a decision together. She mentions that she agreed to consider the baby option. He asks if she expected him to wait until she deemed it appropriate to have a baby. She says that she has a dream job to consider that she wouldn't have imagined having a year ago. He reminds her that she also has a husband she wouldn't have dreamed of having a year ago. She asks what kind of husband is he since he talks to her like he's her boss. David insists to Anna that he's trying to be a husband and share his feelings with her. However, she hasn't listened to his feelings, like his desire to have a family and is willing to change his entire life for her. Anna jokes about his comments, and David gets on the defensive. Anna says that he's either shutting her out or giving her words out of a greeting card that sound fake. David says she just laughed about his honest feelings about starting a family with her. Anna says that there are things that they are good at with each other, but talking to one another isn't one of them. David agrees and goes on by saying he has no idea what he's doing. She mentions that they both blame each other for their troubles. David asks what do they do now. Anna isn't sure. David thinks she knows the answer, but doesn't want to say it. He says it for her and asks if she wants a divorce.

In her room at the Valley Inn, Erica sleeps in bed after a night of passion with Chris. Mr. Stamp comes out of the bathroom fresh from the shower. He lays in bed and whispers to Ms. Kane, "Just when I thought you couldn't get more beautiful." Erica wakes up with a smile on her face and says that he's never seen him fresh out of the shower and thinks its sexy. The couple kisses. Erica says she can hardly remember what happened last night. Chris almost gets offended until she tells him that she meant the fire at her house, not their nightcap. Last night, she thought she have lost everything, including him. Chris says she must've given him too many reasons to stick around. Erica says that she has never felt so alive. Chris asks what can he do about that. The couple kisses again. Soon, there's a knock at the door. Chris opens it up to find Ryan there. He asks his dad if he came at a bad time. Stamp says he did and asks him to come back. Ryan says he can't and walks into the room. Erica covers herself up as Ryan asks if she has any injuries that might've came overnight. She assures Lavery that she's fine, but he needs to leave. He promises that he won't take long and asks Chris if he knows about Kendall's arrest. Chris says that he does. Ryan calls him dad and asks him to help with Kendall. Chris says that he'll do anything to help him--but he won't help Kendall. Erica agrees to leave father and son alone to talk while she takes a shower. Ryan says that Kendall really needs his help and that he's hired a lawyer for her. Chris feels he's wasting his time. Ryan reminds him that he once said all Ms. Hart needed was someone to believe in her and be on her side. Chris says the damage is too great. Ryan says that he visited her last night and told him she didn't do it. Stamp can't believe that Ryan bought her story after she pulled a gun on Erica and sicced the tabloids on Bianca. He says that he's seen Kendall lie to Erica, but he won't let her do it to his son. Ryan says she isn't lying to him. Chris suggests that he look at the situation objectively. Lavery says that he's no better, since he's following Erica's orders and taking her opinions. Chris asks his son to leave. Ryan refuses to leave until he finishes with what he has to say. After all, he saved him from a fire just last night. Chris comments that he didn't expect payback for that this soon. Just then, Erica bursts back in and tells Ryan that she won't let him use emotional blackmail against Chris after he saved him from a bullet. Chris tells Erica to calm down. Ryan apologizes, but asks Erica to consider that she may be wrong about Kendall and asks if he's willing to let her rot in jail for a crime she may not have committed. Erica says that Kendall confessed. Ryan asks what she means by that. Erica says that she heard Kendall say the fire was all her fault when she thought he and Chris were going to die. Ryan doesn't think that alone is an admission of guilt for setting the blaze. He says that Kendall was freaking out at the time and that she did try to save Bianca. Erica corrects him and says that Kendall would never save either her sister or her own mother. Ryan reminds her that Kendall stopped her from going upstairs during the blaze. Erica insists Kendall's motive was to stop her from saving Bianca, not helping her. Ms. Kane is convinced that Kendall is guilty of setting the fire. Ryan says that she's twisting Kendall's words around. Chris says that Kendall is playing him for a fool and that he needs to cut his losses and move on. Lavery thinks that it may be about time for someone to actually help Kendall. Chris tries to stop Ryan from going to see Kendall, but is unsuccessful. Erica thinks that he'll come around and that he won't lose Ryan again. She has him promise not to lose her again. They hug and Chris tells her that he's lucky that he's got her.

In her jail cell, Kendall lays on her bed looking across the bars. The guard tells her she has a visitor. Trey comes in her cell and Ms. Hart asks what he's doing there. Kenyon says that Ryan retained his services. He says that she's facing a multitude of charges including attempted murder and arson that could land her 10 to 20 years in prison. He suggests that she plead guilty, but an irate Kendall says that she's innocent and refuses to plead guilty for a crime she didn't commit. She refuses to spend another minute in jail for a crime she didn't commit. Trey opens his briefcase and takes out his pad. He tells her that her situation is not just going to go away. Kendall assures the attorney that she's not stupid and is talking about bail at her arraignment today. Trey says that bail may be out of the picture since she's considered a flight risk due to her lack of legitimate ties to Pine Valley. Even if they can get a judge to grant bail, the amount will be astronomical. Kendall asks him to let her worry about getting the money, and he just find a way to get her set up for bail. Trey says that the only person she knows that could afford to bail her out is her mother, but since it's her house that she's being accused of torching, that probably won't fly. Kendall once again proclaims her innocence. Kenyon says the evidence places her at the crime scene at the time the fire started. Kendall doesn't care and says that she had nothing to do with the fire. When he says that her fingerprints were all over Bianca's room, she says that she was in the house another time. Trey mentions Erica's statement says she had never been allowed upstairs. Kendall admits that she did go upstairs to Bianca's room once, uninvited. Trey asks for details and Kendall recalls breaking in a while back when everyone was out of town. She was looking to see what mattered to Erica and Bianca. She noticed that there was no inkling of her existence in their house. Trey says that considering she was born out of rape, that's understandable. A fed up Kendall is tired of hearing that she was conceived out of rape, and says that wasn't her fault. Trey says that it isn't Erica's fault, either and that it's no excuse to hate her. Kendall says that she has only given Erica what she gave her--complete indifference. Trey asks if that was why she broke into her mother's house. Ms. Hart says that she went to see what she knew she'd find, which was a fortress Erica built for her and real daughter Bianca, leaving her shut out. Trey says that's why she burned the house down. She says that she didn't. Trey says that all that she has spilled to him would get her convicted due to motive. He suggests that he get her to plead guilty and get a lesser sentence. Kendall still refuses to plead guilty and says that she touched things of Erica's and Bianca's simply to see what it would be like to have Bianca's life. Trey says that she can tell the jury that, but Erica will manipulate the jury to seeing things her way and have her convicted. Kendall says that all the evidence they have on her are the fingerprints. Trey reveals to her that they also spotted a lighter found in some ashes at the house that is identical to hers.

Brooke returns into the living room and asks Edmund if she sounded nasty earlier, because she wasn't trying to be. Edmund says it was just jet lag. Brooke comments that she's glad he was there for Jamie so she wouldn't have to worry about him. She asks if he spoke while she and Tad were away. He says no, but he does seem to be doing better. He's more worried about her. Brooke insists that she's a rock. Edmund points out that she's doing what she always does--taking other people's pain and ignoring her own feelings. Brooke says that Tad isn't "other people." She asks him if he's forgotten what it feels like to lose a wife. An upset Edmund turns away from her and she realizes that she went too far. Brooke apologizes. Edmund tells her that he hasn't forgotten what it feels like to lose a wife. He says it's like falling down a deep dark pit of hopelessness and sadness. Edmund says Tad will be going through the same thing for a long time and doesn't want him to drag her along with him. He feels bad for Tad, but says that Dixie's death is his problem, not hers. Brooke doesn't want Edmund to worry about her and says that because of Jamie, she and Tad will have a connection for the rest of their lives. Brooke looks down on the table and sees a few fancy boxes. She sees that the invitations have arrived. Edmund asks Brooke if she still wants to get married. Brooke says that Dixie's death didn't just happen to Tad, it happened to all of them. They are all family. Edmund tells her that he still wants to marry her and asks if she wants to marry him. Brooke asks him if he thinks they can mail the invitations now and ignore what just happened to Dixie. Edmund says no. Brooke can't see them getting married in a month after the recent turn of events. Tad comes in and urges Brooke not to cancel her wedding because of him. He feels that Dixie would want to see the two of them happy. Brooke insists that it's not a cancellation, just a postponement. They can move back the date to later in the summer. Tad asks if they're sure they want to change the date. Edmund says that they are sure. Tad thanks them, because he wants to be able to enjoy their wedding. Just then, Jamie comes in the room and calls out "Dad."

Kendall can't believe they have a lighter that matches her own. Trey says that it's a little messed up from the fire, but it still looks like hers. Kendall proclaims that her lighter has been in her purse, and is still in good condition. Trey says that he has already looked in her personal belongings and didn't see a lighter there. Kendall says that she's being set up. Trey says that she isn't making it easier for herself with her comments. Ms. Hart asks why would she leave the lighter behind and make herself look guilty if she did start the fire. Trey says that Jackson also hates her, and loves her mother. Kendall says that may be true, but Jack's honest. Kenyon says that Montgomery has a special incentive with this case--giving Erica the wish of having Kendall disappear. Just then, Ryan arrives to visit Kendall. Trey leaves and urges Kendall to think about her options. Ryan holds Kendall's hand and asks if Trey is helping. Kendall says that everything Trey said was right. She then tells Ryan that she is innocent. Ryan tells her that he believes her and promises to get her out of jail as soon as possible. Ryan mentions that his bike is fixed, so they can now travel cross-country together. Kendall says that she can't go. He promises to wait for her to get out of jail before leaving. He asks her what places she would want to go. She mentions Graceland and the Grand Canyon and asks if that's boring. He says that with her, it could never be boring and that they can make love in all the places they travel to. Kendall tells him that she has never wanted anything so bad as to travel with him. Ryan vows to make it happen for them by taking it slow. Kendall isn't sure it will happen. Ryan urges her to believe it will happen.

Erica and Chris return to bed and Erica tells Chris that she needs to finish her shower. After Erica steps out, Chris makes a call to Anna and asks if she heard about the fire at Erica's. He tells her that Kendall was arrested for the crime. She asks if Erica's okay. He says that there were no fatalities, but the house is a total loss. Anna tells him that she'll be at the station shortly. After Anna hangs up with Chris, David asks what happened. Anna tells him about the fire at Erica's and says that she needs to get to the station. David stops her and asks her to answer his question about the divorce. She says that he mentioned it. He asks if she wanted him to mention getting a divorce so she could agree to it. Anna says that they need to discuss this situation later when she has the time and patience to discuss it. David tells Anna that he doesn't want a divorce. Neither does she. David asks what she wants from him and wonders if she just wants to laugh in his face when he's upset and sad. Anna apologizes for laughing earlier and admits that his idea of a house with a weeping willow would be nice. David sees that she doesn't think he's not on the level with his family concept, but vows to do everything to prove that he's sincere about the idea. Anna asks what he needs from her. David comments that he wasn't to flattered by her earlier comment about him not being a husband to her. Anna apologizes. David says he wants to be her husband, and it isn't a con. He feels that she thinks that he's still in love with Dixie or her spirit and doesn't know what he has to do to make their marriage work. Anna insists that all she needs is him. David asks what does that mean. She wants him to trust her and turn to her when he needs someone. Anna says that if he wants a family, the issue needs to be a conversation, not an order. She also says that he can't just walk out on him and leave for the night. David thinks she should go to work. Anna wants him to take her words seriously. He tells her that she's alluring. Anna says that he's the most frustrating man she knows and doesn't know why she loves him so much. David thinks that may mean they'll have an interesting life together. David and Anna go to the bed and he tells his wife that they can wait for her at work. Anna agrees and the newlyweds begin to make love.

Tad tells Jamie that Dixie loved him like he was her own son. Jamie hugs his father. Tad explains to Jamie that out of respect for them, Brooke and Edmund moved back their wedding date. However, they are still getting married. Tad asks if he understands. Jamie remains silent. Brooke says that she's going to fix breakfast and takes Jamie with her into the kitchen. Tad apologizes to Edmund for making he and Brooke push back their wedding date. Edmund says that he and Brooke are on agreement on the decision and that they have the rest of their lives to spend together. Tad comments to Edmund that he managed to survive after Maria died and asks how do you move on and get over something as tragic as losing your wife. Edmund tells him that you don't. Tad knows he has to hold it together for Jamie and J.R.'s sake. Edmund says that the feeling will always be in his heart and the feeling of loss will never go away. Tad admits that in a way, he doesn't want it to go away because it would mean letting go of her. Edmund says that Dixie is a part of him and will never go away. Tad says she was the best part of him and that they were having a baby together before she died. Edmund tells Tad that he's sorry he lost Dixie and his baby. Tad reveals that he found out Dixie was planning on naming the baby after his late grandmother Kate. Tad begins to cry and Edmund puts his hand on his shoulder. Brooke walks in on the tender moment.

Kendall thinks the talk about going out of town is premature. She mentions all the evidence they have against her and the fact that her own lawyer wants her to plead guilty. She tells him that he's her only friend in the world. Ryan asks Kendall to lean on him. Kendall says that she's scared. The couple embrace each other on opposite sides of the bars.

Meanwhile, Trey comes to the boathouse at Willow Lake alone. He takes a lighter out of his pocket and flicks it. Then he throws the lighter into the lake.

Erica and Chris have breakfast together and Ms. Kane comments that there's nothing about him that she doesn't like. He tells her that he'll remember that when they lock horns again. Erica goes to call Bianca from her cell phone in the other room. As Chris gets up and grabs his badge, he has a flash and comes to a realization. The Proteus files were in Erica's house when it caught in fire. The files are destroyed!

Still at the boathouse, Trey grabs a hold of one of Proteus's files out of the box he has stolen and says to himself that he has a lot of reading to do if he's going to find Proteus's money.

Liza sat on the sofa while Mia argued with Dr. Greenberg's office. She was trying to change Liza's appointment and explained that Liza was experiencing symptoms again. Marian walked in and heard part of the conversation. Adam came into the room and said he was taking JR to visit Tad and told Mia to look after Liza while he was gone. After he left Liza turned back to her mother, who asked why she was lying to Adam about her health. Liza claimed that she wasn't telling Adam anything because he had enough to deal with regarding Dixie's death and taking care of JR.Marian began to argue and Stuart showed up saying Colby was waiting for her to help decorate a "snail condo." Stuart told Liza she looked beautiful and must be taking good care of herself. Marian and Stuart went outside and Marian told her husband that Liza was keeping secrets from the family. Inside Liza told Mia that there was no reason to scare anyone yet. She'd go to Dr. Greenberg's first then deal with whatever he told her. Ryan barged in and said he didn't mean to complicate Liza's life but he needed her help. He told her that Kendall's bail was going to be set at a million dollars. Liza turned to Mia and asked if she could call the bank and authorized the withdrawal. Mia said no. Liza was shocked and the sisters began to argue. Liza said it was only money and that she wants to help Ryan. She told Mia to call the bank and said to Ryan they'd get the money to him ASAP. Ryan thanked Liza profusely and left. Mia questioned Liza's actions. Liza said her friendship with Ryan has no price tag. Mia said she'd take care of it as soon as they got out of the house and Adam walked back in. He told Liza he thought she was staying inside today. Liza said she and Mia were just going for a ride in the convertible and Mia said she was leaving to fill the gas tank and would be back for Liza. Adam said he just left Tad and JR and it made him think about what it would be like to lose her. Liza said she was fine and went outside to say goodbye to Colby. She ran into Stuart and Marian. Stuart went inside and Marian nagged Liza to tell her what was going on. Liza just stomped off to find Colby. In Adam's office he was on the phone moving funds around when Stuart came in. He asked Adam if he's keeping secrets too. Adam said he's not keeping anything hidden from his brother, just that he doesn't want some business things to upset Liza. Stuart said that Marian thinks Liza is keeping secrets. Then he asked how JR was doing. Adam said JR was suffering, so is Tad. Adam said he will be forever in Tad's debt if he can help JR get through this. Liza returned and found Marian in the living room. They argued a little then Marian threatened to tell Adam that Liza is hiding something unless Liza tells her what's going on.

Brooke and Tad were sitting in Brooke's living room. She told him he had to do something that just couldn't wait. He said he just couldn't do it right now. Brooke said he needs to help JR with the transition and that a memorial service would help everyone celebrate Dixie's life. Tad said he'd only screw it up if he tried. The doorbell rang and Brooke let JR and Adam in. Tad and JR hugged while Adam said no one was more full of life than Dixie and that he'd miss her. JR asked to speak with Tad alone. Adam told Tad that Liza sent her love and is thinking of him. Tad sent his love back and Adam walked to the door. Brooke followed him and asked how JR was. Adam said not good. She returned to the living room and told Tad she was going upstairs. JR and Tad sat down and JR said he didn't understand why things like this happen. Tad said if he could figure it out he'd rule the world. JR asked what they were to do now. Tad told him he needed his help. They talked about Dixie and JR said he was glad Tad brought back all of her things from Europe. He asked if his mother knew he loved her. Tad said yes, more than anything and she loved him the same way. Tad tried to give back the wishing star necklace but JR said no, it was something between his mom and Tad. Tad asked JR to help him plan a memorial service and JR agreed. Tad said Dixie would want them to pull together. JR broke down and cried, saying he wanted his mom back. Tad held him and said they'd get through this together because that's what Dixie would want. Brooke walked in and Tad looked at her. As JR was ready to leave he and Tad agreed to make plans for the memorial. After Tad shut the door he sat down on the steps. Brooke sat next to him. He said he couldn't go home and Brooke told him to stay there with her and Jamie.

Erica sat on her hotel bed and had a flashback to the fire. A knock on the door brought Jackson into the room. She asked where Bianca was and he said she went to school. Erica was surprised but understood that Bianca wanted to get back to normal. She thanked Jack for being so good to them and hugged him. He was uncomfortable and saw Chris's shirt on the chair. Erica asked about Bianca, whether she ate or slept. Jack asked "Did you?" implying that she wasn't really that concerned with Bianca because she had been busy all night with Chris. This started an argument and Erica accused Jack of being very jealous. Jack wondered why all she could talk about is Chris the day after her house burned down. He questioned her ability to love Bianca and Chris at the same time. Erica asked if Jack could put his envy of what she had with Chris behind him. Jack said she was being ridiculous and she got more upset and began to cry. Jack hugged her and she just shook her head.

Ryan visited Kendall in jail. Trey arrived and told them the word going around was that bail would be a million dollars. Ryan left to go to Liza's. Trey told Kendall the only way to go was to plead guilty. Kendall said she wouldn't lie but Trey told her she had to think of her own survival. They left for the bail hearing. Trey told her to trust him but she was confused and wanted Ryan. In the courtroom Trey told Kendall to follow his lead. She looked around for Ryan but saw Bianca instead. The hearing began and the judge listed all of the offenses against Kendall. The prosecutor asked for a million dollar bail and the judge granted it. He said they would set the prelim trial date. Trey said they wanted to waive the prelim and enter a plea of guilty. The judge asked Kendall if this is what she wanted but she didn't answer. Trey told her to do it but Ryan arrived and told her he had the bail money. Kendall turned to the judge and said she's not pleading guilty; she's totally innocent. Bianca ran out of the courtroom. Ryan told the court he'd arranged bail and he hugged Kendall. Mia walked in and told Ryan she'd given the bail money and he could do the paperwork. Ryan left to take care of that and Trey angrily grabbed Mia. She told him she was doing Liza a favor. Trey told her she hasn't made her last withdrawal and let go of her. Ryan returned and asked where Kendall was. Trey said she must've taken off and Ryan ran out.

Back in Erica's room Jack said she still managed to push all of his buttons. They fought some more and Bianca was outside the door. She walked in and Erica hugged her. She asked Jack to lunch. Erica told her she didn't have to worry about Kendall getting out of jail, because her bail was very high. Bianca just looked at Jack and they left for lunch. A little while later a knock at her door brought Kendall in her room.

David and Anna were lounging in bed reading the morning newspaper when Anna saw an announcement that Dixie's memorial service was being held that day. David decided he wasn't going. The best way to honor Dixie was to go to the hospital and work, he told Anna. Anna asked David if that is what he really wanted to do. He nodded in agreement. Anna told David that she was going to look at a Victorian house that was for sale. She saw it listed in the Real Estate section of the newspaper.

At the hospital David asked the nurse for the day's schedule and noticed that half of it was cancelled. The nurse told him Dr. Joe and some of the staff were given half the day off to attend the memorial service.

Dixie's memorial service was being held at the chapel at Wildwind. Edmund lit a memorial candle in her memory. Tad entered with Brooke, JR and Jamie. Tad noticed the daises and commented they were Dixie's favorite. JR brought a large size picture of Dixie to be placed on an easel for viewing. He asked Tad to place the picture for him. Tad gazed sadly at the picture.

The guests arrived at the chapel for the memorial service. Dr. Joe Martin arrived with Mia and Jake. Myrtle was accompanied by Opal, Bianca and Jackson. Liza and Adam entered the chapel. Liza embraced Tad as he asked her how is he going to get through the service. The minister asked those who wished to share memories about Dixie to come forward. Adam came forward first and shared his memories of Dixie. She had come to work for him and ended up giving him a son, JR. Adam told JR his mother loved him more than life and that he expected JR to pick up where Dixie left off. JR is to keep him an honest man.

Brooke came forward next. Dixie was a force to be reckoned with she said. She looked at JR and said he was the center of her world. Brooke also spoke of Dixie's desire to have a child with Tad and accepted Jamie as her own even though Brooke was his mother. Dixie had a big heart and because of that our hearts are full. Brooke placed the picture Dixie had left for Tad in Switzerland upon the easel. It was the sonogram of Baby Kate. She returned to her seat, touching Tad on the arm as she passed by.

Opal walked to the front of the chapel to talk about Dixie. As she spoke, a voice cried out from the chapel entrance, "Stop!" David entered the room as Tad stood to look at him. "You're not talking about the real Dixie," exclaimed David. He agreed she was sweet and kind but she wasn't perfect. She was a wounded, flawed, and bled from the heat like everyone else, David continued. God knows how much I loved her. David shared his memories of Dixie, recalling she was a pale beauty. She was a true steel magnolia. Her honesty was what I loved most. David looked at Tad and told him he was sorry for the pain he caused him and his family. I know Dixie belongs to you but for one brief moment she was mine. He then left the chapel and returned to the hospital.

Tad stood to remember Dixie. He regretted hurting the people he loved the most, especially Dixie. She was always first in my heart. She was my life. I feel so lost without her, he laments. JR sat quietly, tears flowing down his face. Tad continued. I'll never get a chance to hold my baby girl. Tad went on he was angry at himself because the person I loved the most paid the highest price because of my fear I would lose Dixie. He felt guilty for making Dixie leave her home so she could follow her heart and have the baby. I am so sorry and will always be. Tad began to softly cry. Brook came forward to console him and as they embraced Tad flashed back over his life with Dixie. The fun times, their engagement-his proposal in the chicken suit, the trip to NY and their dancing in the hotel room in the white hotel robes and finally to the star necklace Tad gave her just before she left for Paris.

The service ended and goodbyes were said. Tad told Brooke he made it because of her. He encouraged her to spend some time with Edmund. Brooke looked around the chapel but Edmund had disappeared. He had gone to the family crematorium. He walked over to Maria's resting place and placed his hand on the memorial plaque, touching her name.

Roger entered the restaurant and joined Leo at a table. Leo told him to get rid of his side dish at least until after the wedding. Roger promised he'll break off his relationship that day.

Simone and Greenlee looked through bridal magazines at Greenlee's condo. Greenlee told Simone her wish is coming true. Her mother, Mary Smythe, was coming to her wedding and that her father and mother were going to get back together. Simone hid her surprised reaction from Greenlee upon hearing this news. Simone suddenly developed a headache and told Greenlee she was going to her condo to rest. Greenlee wondered aloud to Simone she thinks their friendship is one way. " I tell you everything about myself, Simone, but you tell me nothing about yourself." Before Simone can leave Greenlee's condo, Roger and Leo came through the door. Roger asked if they have their charge cards ready to go shopping. Hearing about Simone's headache, he offered to help ease the pain but she refused. Leo asked Simone how the writing project is coming along. Simone replied it won't be written because it is a dead end as she looked at Roger. Roger looked surprised. Leo and Greenlee left to go to the other room to look at the wedding invitations that had arrived from the printer. This gave Roger an opportunity to question Simone about not writing the book about Proteus. Simone angrily told Roger I hope you have a nice life with your wife and turned to leave the condo, slamming the door behind her. Roger was stunned.

Greenlee and Leo returned to the living room. Greenlee told Roger that Revlon is paying for her wedding and that he will play a prominent role as father of the bride. As such, Revlon was paying him for his image. She handed him a generous check from Revlon. After accepting the check, Roger left the condo.

Greenlee asked Leo how was his workout. She had noticed he had left his gym bag in the closet. She asked where was he really. Leo mumbled some excuse. Greenlee changed the subject and decided she was going to give Simone some of her prescription headache medication she used when dealing with loony Laura. She would use her passkey to let herself into Simone's condo and leave the medication by her bed while Simone was resting.

Roger immediately went to Simone's condo and begged her to let him in so he can explain about Mary. Simone angrily opened the door and let Roger in. He tried to embrace her but she demanded he not touch her. Roger denied he and Mary were getting together. It is Greenlee's illusion he told Simone. He tried to persuade Simone to believe him and that he only truly loves her. Simone didn't buy it at first but her emotions overcame her as she and Roger embraced and madly kissed.

Leo used Greenlee's master key to enter Simone's condo to bring her the headache medication from Greenlee. He gasped as he saw Roger and Simone kissing and embracing, half dressed, on her sofa.

Back at Greenlee's condo, Greenlee, talking on her cell phone to the printer, demanded the printer redo the invitations. The doorbell rings. She ended the call to answer the door. She muttered to herself, thinking it is Leo, that he needed to wear the key around his neck. She opened the door and exclaimed, "Mommy." Mary Smythe has arrived.

Anna rushed from the elevator at the hospital. Seeing David she asked him why hadn't he answered his pager. She told him about the house she had looked at. It has a garden, lots of rooms and a willow tree in the back. So if you want to go for it, the SUV and the babies, I will too, she told David. David, pleased, holds her face in his hands as he began to kiss her. Suddenly, JR burst into the hospital hallway and admonished David. "You just couldn't leave Dixie alone even at the memorial, he shouted. JR then slugged David.
