Bianca couldn't get past Zarf's deception. She was convinced that Zarf, who referred to himself as Zoe when dressed as a woman, was only doing so as an attempt to seduce her. Zoe tried to tell Bianca what life was like being a girl trapped in a boy's body while growing up. Bianca heard the story of someone who decided to have transition surgery.

Zach talked out loud, asking the killer what he wanted from Zach, as a camera recorded his every move. As the killer looked on from a secret room, Zach pulled out a batch of love letters written to his mother from her secret lover "R." Zach wondered if the killer blamed him for Amelia's death. After Joe warned him not to pressure Dani, Derek gently asked his daughter if she could recall what she saw before she passed out. She slowly told him that what she thought she saw was a man. She managed to elaborate far enough to tell them that the hand she saw was encased in a glove, and that she remembered a bird swooping down toward her face.
January 22 to 26, 2007
Babe's decision to draw up a will worried Krystal. Ryan and Josh drugged Zach to get some answers. They got more than they bargained for.

He went on to say that Greg's death was never Tad's intention. Josh kept the information to himself for a while, but a confrontation with Jamie had him rethinking his decision. Ryan was furious when Kendall justified keeping the truth about his daughter from him. Some began to suspect that the killer was none other than David Hayward.

Babe had other ideas and enlisted Zoe's help to blackmail JR. JR arrived home in time to hear Adam and Krystal declare their new commitment to be open and honest about everything. JR decided the time was right to help them achieve truthful bliss. A visit with a lucid Janet left Jamie and Amanda wondering if the Satin Slayer could be Ethan's mother.

Later, after Krystal learned about Babe's last hours, she confronted JR. She demanded that he leave the house but not with his son. JR, himself rocked by Babe's death, talked to her. Privately, he told her that he knew that Tad was the father of her baby and promised her that he would not tell Adam. He felt that Krystal had lost too much and refused to put her through any more heartache. They reached an understanding. At Dixie and Babe's funeral, friends and family lined up to give touching eulogies for both women. Elsewhere, Babe slowly woke up.
February 19 to 23, 2007
Derek had his doubts that Zoe was the latest victim of the Satin Slayer. He pointed out that Zoe had escaped without being injected with a needle, and there were no signs of the gardenia or satin ribbon. Zoe remembered that her attacker had spit on her. Jack pushed for Derek to test the DNA, but Derek classified the attack as an assault. Later, he returned and silently collected the clothing to be tested for DNA. JR and Krystal continued to mourn for Babe. Babe woke up in a hospital bed, with Kendall and Josh at her side. They were able to convince Babe that she was in the hospital.

Ryan told her to hold tight as he, Tad, Jamie, Aidan, and JR made their way to Las Vegas. Zach was rendered unconscious by his father, Alexander Cambias. The woman Zach believed to be his mother was actually a double who was hired by Alex. He killed her when she raised objections. Kendall was eventually lured to the warehouse. Alexander quickly whisked her away to a replica of her house. By the time Zach arrived, Alexander had Kendall dressed in a gown like Amelia wore with an injection of poison secured to her neck. The device was attached to a detonator that Alex was holding. If he depressed it, the detonator would trigger the injection and Kendall would die in moments. He pushed Zach past his breaking point when he forced him to his knees begging for his father's forgiveness. Zach attacked Alex, trying to wrench the detonator away without depressing the button as Kendall cried out.

When Amanda woke up, she found Jenny. She quickly realized she didn't have a cell phone, and she and Jenny were locked in with Janet nowhere to be seen. Janet showed up at Krystal's. She prattled on about random things, intertwining them with notes about the baby until Tad arrived. Janet told them to settle in for a lengthy interview process to determine their fitness as parents.
