Bianca can't understand why Kendall feels so cheated since she had a loving normal family anyway. Trey leaves and reminds Kendall to think about what they had discussed.

As the morning sun rose, Greenlee and Leo woke up in the boathouse where they had spent the night making love to each other. Greenlee told Leo the next time they made love she would be a married woman. Leo left to run an errand just as Greenlee's cell phone rang. It was Vanessa who demanded Greenlee come visit her at Oak Haven immediately or she may never be Greenlee's mother-in-law. Greenlee left the boathouse to go to see Vanessa.

At Oak Haven, Greenlee reluctantly visited with Vanessa and demanded what Vanessa wanted. Vanessa told Greenlee she wanted to tell her the truth about Count du Pres and began to give information to Greenlee when she suddenly became hysterical and buried her head in her pillow. Unknown to Greenlee, behind her stood Wolfe, posing as a doctor from Switzerland. He gave Vanessa a menacing look, causing her to suddenly go into her looney act and told Greenlee to leave her alone. Greenlee left without knowing about Wolfe's presence. Wolfe demanded from Vanessa the $10 million she stole from him.

Mary Smythe, sitting at a table in the dining room, was having her morning coffee waiting for her father, Woody, to join her. He appeared and sat down at Mary's table. He congratulated her on her devoted mother act with Greenlee. Mary reminded him of the bargain. She would be the "devoted" mother in return Woody would finally release her inheritance to her. He said he would after the wedding. They were joined by Leo who told Mary she better continue the devoted mother act or she would answer to him and also demanded that Woody hold Mary accountable for her behavior towards Greenlee at least until after the wedding. Leo then left the dining room.

Roger entered Simon's living room buttoning his shirt cuffs. Simone was angry with herself for allowing her emotions get the best of her. She wasn't happy she had invited Roger over to have sex with her and she angrily told Roger to leave. She didn't want to see him ever again. She told Roger she regretted giving into her emotions and calling him to come over and wanted him gone. Roger said he would when she signed a contract giving him rights to the book deal on Proteus. She refused so Roger threatened to go to her father and confess he was having an affair with his daughter. Simone dug her heels in demanded Roger leave immediately.

Erica walked through the remains of her burned house. In her mind she went over the time line Myrtle had talked to her about, further convincing Erica Kendall could not have set the fire. Myrtle had seen Kendall just before the fire began so Kendall would not have had enough time to set the fire. Erica really didn't want to involved Myrtle as a witness in Kendall's trial and wasn't sure how she could avoid Myrtle testifying. Jack surprised Erica by appearing at the burned house. He wanted to know why Erica doubted Kendall's involvement in the fire but Erica didn't give him an answer. Jack went over the evidence he had. The forensic team could not find any trace of anyone else at the fire scene. Only Kendall. Bianca interrupted them and announced that Ryan had left town without Kendall. Erica realized there was a possibility if Kendall is set free of the arson charges she could stay in Pine Valley and be a threat to her and Bianca. So Erica told Jack she did not have any evidence Kendall did not set the fire.

At the Pine Cone Motel, Kendall sobbed uncontrollably as Chris dropped by to tell her to stay away from Erica and Bianca at the trial. He left the door to the room opened allowing Aidan to come in. Aidan thought Chris was the one Kendall had told him she was dumping. He also mentioned the fact that Kendall had taken her top off while she was seducing him at the construction site. Chris was stunned and left the motel room with Aidan. Kendall continued her sobbing and called Ryan's name. Trey entered the room and asked why she wasn't dressed for court. Kendall continued to sob and told him she was not going to court and didn't care anymore about her case. She had given up. Trey, with a sly smile, told Kendall he would appear on her behalf and left the motel.

Greenlee went to the Valley Inn for her wedding rehearsal. She became frantic when she saw no one else was there except her mother. Meanwhile, Leo has gone to Simone's loft and discovered Roger was there. He shouted at Simone she had promised to break off the relationship with Roger and he couldn't understand why Roger was still involved. Roger taunted Leo and said there was nothing he could do about it and Leo told him, yes there was as he slugged Roger in the jaw. Roger fell to the floor, semi-conscious and then his eyes closed. Simone reminded Leo of Roger's heart condition and Leo, in a slight panic, called his brother, David, and told him he thought he just killed his father-in-law.

At the courthouse, court convened with Judge Ann Callam presiding. She asked Trey where was the defendant and Trey announced Kendall's decision not to attend the trial and that Kendall would accept whatever plea charges from the prosecution. There was a mummer in the court. Erica, Bianca and Chris looked stunned. Meanwhile back at the motel, Kendall continued to sob for Ryan and then suddenly pulled herself together vowing she was not going to let them do this to her again. She intended to show them how strong she could be.
