Dinah and Matt were discussing the plans for the hospital wing that is being built in Vanessa's honor. While they were talking, Hart showed up with Peter. Hart asked Dinah what they were doing, and she explained the plans for the new wing. She said Matt was working on the plans for her. Matt took Peter off to play ball, and Dinah and Hart started talking. Dinah asked if Hart had slept at the boarding house and he said no. Hart told Dinah that Peter misses her. Hart told Dinah that he wants to see Dinah for lunch, with Peter. Matt and Dinah had to leave, so Hart and Dinah agreed to have their lunch at another time.

Alex showed up at the board meeting. Alan asked her to tell everyone that Roger was lying, and that Alex knew nothing abut Amanda being Alan's sister. Alex said she wished that she could say that it was a lie, but it wasn't. She also said she has known for some time. Alan was furious at Alex for lying to him. Alex said she was just trying to protect him from Brandon. Phillip was also angry, and said that Alex should have told the family. Alan told Alex that Roger and Amanda had already frozen all the assets. Alex asked Amanda what it felt like when she found out she was Brandon's daughter. She asked Amanda who's idea it was to let the whole world know about Amanda being Alan's sister. Alex told Amanda that she can see that Roger has convinced her that she needs him in order to get her inheritance. Alex told Amanda that once Roger gets what he wants from her, he will leave her high and dry. Amanda stood up for Roger and said that he was behind her even before this secret came out. The meeting resumed, and the motion was made to freeze the company's assets. The board voted to freeze all assets until the ownership of the company is resolved. Phillip went to Amanda and told her it would take some time to get used to her being his aunt, not his sister. Phillip told Amanda that he almost felt sorry for her, but also that when he found out about what Alan did to him, he went after only Alan, that Amanda went after the whole family. He told Amanda that she should have come to him, instead of doing things Roger's way.

Reva went to see Annie. Reva said she needs Annie's help in clearing something up. Reva told Annie that she was wondering how they would handle things if something were to hapen to HB. Reva mentioned that she had talked to Josh, and Annie got angry. Reva said she needs Annie's help, and reminded her of how when they were in Italy, and Annie had told Reva about losing a parent. Annie said she has been thinking alot lately about losing her parents. She said she had been such a wild child that they would be happy to see that she had settled into a nice life. Annie told Reva that she has been less than honest about her childhood. Reva said she would like to be friends with Annie. Annie said that that would be fine, but only if Reva agreed to keep what Annie says to herself, because even Josh doesn't know. Reva agreed, then Annie told her that the Duttons were not her real parents. Reva asked if Annie were ever interested in finding her birth parents, but Annie said no. She said if her mother didn't love her enough to keep her, then why would she be interested in her now. Reva told Annie that that was probably not true. She told about how she gave Dylan up for adoption, and why. Reva asked Annie to tell the whole story. Annie told Reva that her childhood had been absolute hell. Reva told her she was very sorry, and called her Dani. Annie asked what she said, and Reva said she said Annie. Annie told Reva that she does not feel comfortable talking about her past. She said for once in her life, she is looking forward to what is ahead of her. Reva told Annie that her mother had also had a cameo, and asked Annie for a closer look at hers. Annie asked Reva why she is being so nice to her all of a sudden. Reva said she knows that Annie has been stressed about her being around. Annie decided to let Reva have a look at the cameo. Reva said she would take the cameo for a thorough cleaning. She took it home, opened it, and saw Sarah's picture in it. Reva began sobbing. Reva said that Annie cannot be her sister. Annie went to Reva's house and was looking in the window at Reva crying, then she left.

She said she wanted to explain to him why she did what she did. Alex said there were many times she wanted to burn the birth certificate up, but something stopped her. She said she wanted to protect him. She said that since Jenifer was his first real love, that it would hurt him to know that she was also having an affair with his father.

He said the he knows he will never win Abby back now, since she watched him being chewed out by Charles, and never said a work to defend him.

Holly asked Ross if he was willing to ruin the lives of four people because his ego was hurt. She told him about how she was with Blake the night of the accident- how upset Blake was, and how much she wanted to tell Ross the truth.
