Katie tried to not let Carly's return threaten her, and for his kids' sakes, Jack told Carly that if she said Simon had coerced her, she might beat her charges.

Carly and Jack raced to Tom's office for legal help, but Tom refused to represent either of them in a custody battle. Upset about Parker's treatment of Carly, JJ set Parker up to get caught with a BB gun. Faith tripped over the gun, and it fired on her. Despite Parker's denials, Jack was sure Parker had left the gun out, and Jack forged ahead with plans to send Parker to a juvenile camp. Faith admitted to her mother that she had a crush on Parker, but his preference for the skinner Morgan had sent Faith on a candy bar binge. JJ confessed to Faith that he'd planted the BB gun that she'd tripped over. Craig obtained a Lakeview passkey and tried to enter Paul's room looking for Meg. As Paul pushed back on his door, Meg hid out on the window ledge. Craig left, but later propositioned Meg for sex. Meg asserted there would be no sex before marriage, and so Craig moved up the wedding date to the next day.
June 18 to 22, 2007
Jack prepared to ship Parker off to camp, and JJ confessed to Carly that he'd been behind the BB gun incident. Parker, however, had run away before his parents could correct the matter with him.

Carly and Parker spent a night bonding at their old house, and as Jack and Carly worked out their kids' issues, Katie felt insecure about her relationship with Jack. Meg got the Worldwide ownership papers from Craig and went through with the wedding. Paul tried to stop it, but Lucinda held him at bay. Afterwards, Paul tried to get Meg to abandon the plan and run away with him. Craig spied on them and decided there'd be a change in plan. Craig and Meg disappeared, and Paul and Lucinda discovered that Craig had absconded with Meg to Vancouver. Meg was upset that Craig had taken her there and that they'd missed their reception.
