Dinah slipped up in front of her mother and said that she couldn't wait until she and Hart had a baby that was really his. She admitted that the child she was carrying was not Hart's, but it really didn't matter since he loved it so much. Vanessa was amazed to see that her daughter was so delusional in thinking that Hart will love her someday. She tried to make Dinah see how many people she has hurt with her lies, but Dinah refuses to tell Hart the truth. She tells Vanessa that he is the only one who makes her happy, and he was the one who essentially pulled her from the brink of death.

Hart gets drunk at a bar and runs into Shawn. He tries to cause trouble with Shawn, but is not successful. Shawn tells him to leave him alone and go home.

Ken is still holding Harley hostage with a knife to her throat and Phillip is trying to talk him into letting her go. More police bust through the door, making Ken more upset. Just as he is about to let Harley go, Teri aims her gun at him. Frank and Phillip lunge at her to keep her from shooting, and the police restrain Ken. He is taken off to the police station. Harley begs the police officers not to hurt him; she believes that he is not the real stalker. Frank gets in Teri's face and admonishes her for using such rash judgment in aiming her gun at Ken, and possibly hurting his sister.

When Blake stops by to talk with Ross about custody of the children and the legal notice she received this morning, she is frightened by his anger and his contention that she likes her men to be rough with her.

Dinah told Hart that Cassie was just there to see how she was doing and to ask her to take good care of him.

Frank and his men found Annie's car up the road with duct tape, a shovel, and a body bag.

Unfortunately, no evidence turned up in Annie's car except a dry cleaning receipt and a cuff link with the initials "AS". Frank called the store and got a phone number.

They all headed for her apartment...

Holly paid Ross a visit and asked him to defend her brother. Ross offered a referral instead, until Holly asked him not to give up on his family. Ross was afraid that he was turning into his brother.

Ben visited Blake and reassured her that they wouldn't lose the battle. His plan was that he would re-open the case and she would press charges against Ross for attempted murder.

Ross apologized to Blake for almost assaulting her at the office. He was surprised to see Ben there with them and calmly asked him to leave. Ben replied by stating that he wasn't going anywhere and that Ross doesn't live there anymore. He continued to taunt Ross by claiming that he was better for the boys as well as Blake. Ross went upstairs to say "good night" to the boys and also told them that he would do anything for them. Meanwhile, Ross reassured Blake that she wouldn't lose her children. After Ross returned, Blake told him that there was no reason why they couldn't have joint-custody. Ross shocked both Blake and Ben by telling them that he wants his entire family back intact (including Blake)...

Dahlia cut in on David and Vicky dancing to make Marcus jealous. Marcus then tried to apologize to her, explaining that "it was a one time thing".

The two sat down and talked -- Marcus told her that he loved her and wanted a second chance. Dahlia was hesitant but agreed that there was something worth fighting for...

Teri warned Alan that if he ever received another email from Annie he had better turn it in to them; however, Alan quickly pointed out that he wasn't the one on her mind and left upset. Reva pointed out that Teri had not checked out a desk. Despite Teri's argument that they needed a search warrant, Reva insisted on opening it. Inside were two letters: one for Josh and one for Reva. Josh's letter reminded him of the love they once shared and Reva's contained a curse...
