A few feet away, Blake confronts Ben about taping her clone conversation with Cassie. Ben denies it. Blake, however, is wise to Ben and his lies and doesn't believe him. Just around the corner in the ladies room, Reva threatens Annie with the videotape that Annie made when she kidnapped Reva and tried to kill her on the airplane. Annie doesn't flinch, admitting that she will enjoy watching Reva squirm as the "clone story" comes out in court. The two enemies go at each other verbally in a great scene with Reva at her best in her red suit. (Doesn't she always do her most memorable scenes dressed in red?) Finally, Annie backs down and agrees to leave Reva and her family alone and forget the clone if Reva keeps quiet about the tape. Annie is unaware that the tape is a fake made by Reva and Josh.

A few minutes later when they return to the courtroom, Reva and Josh stun the District Attorney by telling her that they no longer want to testify. The judge closes the case and ends up giving Annie 5 years of probation, community service and psychotherapy.

Phillip threatens to tell the police about Alan's kidnaping of Teri unless he gives Josh his company back. Alan calls his bluff but later, Phillip finds a loophole in Ben's arrangement with Alan and takes great pleasure in ruining Ben's plans by reminding him that Annie was not found innocent as he promised. Therefore, he's taking over the company himself.

Phillip then interrupts the party and stuns Josh with his news. He does offer Josh the chance to remain at Lewis Oil as a consultant.

After some mild drunken flirting, Drew takes Danny upstairs to her place where she reveals that she just learned she's adopted. The new friends then make love.

After some encouraging words of support from her brother, Buzz interrupts and angrily lets Holly know that he holds her responsible for the death of Jenna, his heart and soul.
