In San Cristobel:
At the Palace:
Prince Edmund calls the royal doctor and tells him he has to see him ASAP. The doctor tells him he is tied up all day but Edmund tells him that he will be in his office in 30 minutes. Edmund tells the doc that the future of SC is in his hands.

At the Royal Doctor's Office:
Edmund goes in and hands the doctor an envelope full of pictures of himself with a very young woman that was not his wife. The doctor tells him that he makes a mockery of the royal family and wonders what Edmund is planning to do with the pictures. Edmund tells him that if he does what he says he will do nothing, otherwise, he will see the pictures on the front page of the paper and Edmund would make sure the doctor's wife gets several copies. The doctor asks what he wants. Edmund tells him that Cassie will be coming by soon and she will want confirmation that she is pregnant but he should tell her she is not. The doctor refuses and says that she will find out soon anyway if she is. Edmund tells him to tell her she is not now but in a few weeks he can tell her she is. Edmund tells him all he has to do is put off giving her the good news for a few weeks. He tells the doctor it is a no-brainer and leaves his office.

Later, the doctor calls Edmund at the palace and tells him that Princess Cassie called for an appointment. Edmund thinks it is great but the doctor tells him that he doesn't think he can lie to her.

In Springfield:
At the Carriage House:
Blake is going through her jewelry looking to see what else is missing. She is upset about the robbery but glad that she had a back up disk of her notes with Selena stashed in the boy's toy box. Ross tells her that it is obvious to him and the police that the robbery was done by an amateur and they should be glad that the babysitter didn't come back and surprise him. Blake thinks about it and wonders if Selena came and took the computer and made it look like a robbery. She thinks that she may have decided not to let her use her story and that is why she did it. Ross wonders why she would do that and Blake starts to tell him but says she cant. He asks her if she can't tell him because of making him an accessory. She said yes and he told her to give him a dollar and she could retain his services. She did and he told her that from now on anything she says to him would be confidential. She is relieved that she can get things off her chest and tells him that she thinks Selena is involved with a murder but all the details are fuzzy. Ross tells her that not knowing the details may be dangerous. Blake says she will go talk to Selena. She may not tell her what she wants to know but she may at least get her computer down.

At Inferno:
Abuela has Blake's laptop printing out her notes. She is reading some of the hardcopies and is sure that this is the story of her son's murder. Maria remembers that day and how she couldn't even recognize her own son's face he was beaten so badly. Tony comes in and asks Abuela if she had found what she was looking for. Abuela tells him that she did. He tells her if he needs her again to let him know. She tells him that she wants him to follow around "the red head" (Blake) and let her know what she does and whom she sees. Tony leaves.

At Company:
Buzz talks to Harley about Selena's bad mood. Buzz tells her that Blake had broken their agreement of confidentiality on Reva's talk show and Selena is upset by it. David comes in and he and Harley talk about the talk show and how he wonders if this is the break he has been looking for in the Miguel Santos murder. He tells Harley how what Blake described to a tee the murder and thinks that whoever her source is knows something. He thinks he should talk to Selena again because she was acting jumpy last time he brought it up to her. Harley tells him that she will do it for him since Selena is practically family. David can tell Harley knows something but she doesn't tell him. She is putting it all together in her mind though. David tells her that he didn't get to see the interview and he is going to WSPR to get a copy of it for them to go over. Harley tells him that it does sound like Miguel's death but that doesn't mean Blake knows anything. David will get the tape and they can go from there and question Blake as well. David leaves and Harley approaches Selena. Harley says David told her that she knew Miguel Santos in Chicago. Selena is evasive but Harley says that Blake and she are working on a book, and a lot of it is about Miguel. Harley tells Selena she seems jumpy. Selena tells her that Buzz was right about the book being a bad idea. She says there was nothing about the Santos family in it however, just her feelings and her past. Harley asks if she ever knew Miguel. Selena says she knew what Miguel looked like and saw him around but she didn't hang with his crowd. Selena says that Blake probably got the story from old newspapers. Harley apologizes for asking. Selena tells Harley to ask the cops to cross her off their list about the Santos murder. Harley agrees and leaves.

Blake comes in and tells Selena she wants her computer back. Selena is surprised and hustles her outside. Blake says she offered to give up the book twice and she said no. She said she would have deleted the files if she had asked her to and Selena didn't have to steal the computer. Selena doesn't know what she is talking about and Blake tells her about the break-in. Selena sits down on the step and is figures someone connected to the Santos broke in. Blake apologizes for shooting off her mouth. Selena says that Blake will have to tell the police that she read about the Miguel Santo's murder in the newspaper and tell them the only thing Selena told her was about her life on the streets. Blake is shocked to find out that Mike is Miguel. They realize they are both in trouble. Selena hopes the computer is at the bottom of the lake right now. Tony is lurking in the bushes hearing the whole conversation.

Olivia meets up with Sam outside Company. She asks him to help her. She said Marah gave her a hard time that morning and was hoping that she would have something to cheer her up. Sam tells her that he is on his way over there and will see if he can take her mind off all the negative things which will take the pressure off Olivia. He wants to know if he can keep his bike then and Olivia said, No. She asks him to do it for her anyway. He says he will but asks her to think about the bike.

Buzz goes over to a shaken Selena and asks what the problem is. Selena says that the gossips are talking and she is in the middle. Buzz mentions the Santos things and Selena says Harley was asking questions but that she was very sweet about it. Selena is jumpy and feels all eyes are on her. It is exactly what he tried to spare her from. Buzz hugs her and says he has lost all the women in his life, but won't lose her. Whoever wants at her will have to go through him first.

At Inferno (Again):
Tony comes back in and tells Abuela that he followed Blake and she met up with Selena, a waitress, at Company and that they were talking about the book and how "mike" was really Miguel Santos.

Richard and Edmund are having a drink while they discuss the doctor's findings. Richard doesn't believe this could be happening. Edmund feigns sympathy and Richard tells him that he is going for a second opinion in New York at a doctor that the SC doctor recommended. Richard leaves after asking Edmund not to mention this to Cassie. Ed is upset with Dr. Weymouth, but says to himself it is not over. Edmund calls Dr. Weymouth and argues with him about suggesting to Richard a second opinion. Edmund demands to know who the doctor in NY is. Dr. Weymouth tries not to tell him but Edmund threatens him with blackmail until he tells him that he suggested Dr. Holt on Park Avenue. Edmund thanks the doctor and turns his attention to Rourke, who had just come in. He tells Rourke that they have to act immediately and Rourke should get Cassie alone that evening.

Cassie is in her room when Rourke comes in. He tells her that Richard will be awhile on the phone. Cassie tells him that he can go to his room now and he bid her a good evening. He searched for some reason to stay and acts like his shoulder is hurting. He tells Cassie that the only thing that helps it is to rub it. She offers to help. He tells her that it was an old diving injury and he doesn't want Richard to know because he may think he is unfit for the job. Cassie starts rubbing his back and says she can't feel a knot. He strips his shirt off, stunning Cassie. She shrugs it off and rubs his shoulder just as Richard walks in the door. Cassie notices Richard and says she thought he would be a while longer on the phone. Ed walks in and Richard asks both of them to leave so he can talk to Cassie. In the hallway, Ed tells Rourke he did very well then he stands back and overhears a little of Richard and Cassie's conversation. Inside the room, Cassie just looks at Richard. She asks him why he is looking at her so strangely. He wants to know what he walked in on. She explains about the shoulder injury and Richard sarcastically tells her how thoughtful she was to rub it for him. Cassie wants to know why he is acting that way. Richard tells her she has an effect on men. Cassie says she knows when a man finds her attractive and Rourke doesn't. Richard tells her that Rourke is a man and there is no way he doesn't find her attractive. He tells her that he knows she was just trying to help and doesn't want to discourage her from being herself but that she needs to censor herself, but not with him. He says he would encourage her to behave X-rated with him. Cassie asks him if he has a muscle to be massaged. He is speechless for a minute and she tells him his jealousy was a turn on and she will show him she is only "his." They start to kiss quite passionately.

At the Firehouse:

He rolls her on her back, noticing a cut in the palm of his hand (from the knife). He starts to trash the place, as Selena lies unconscious on the floor.

At Inferno:
Pilar exposes the casino to everyone, making Danny think fast on his feet. He covers by telling everyone that the casino is for the entertainment of Springfield's high roller's and is also available for private parties. All the cops are looking at Danny for explanation, Harley, David and Frank. Danny tells them that all profits from the casino will be donated to a local charity. The crowd applauds. Harley asks which charity, and Danny says they will change weekly with the first week going to Father Ray's church and the second week to the Police Benevolent Association. Frank thinks that is a great idea. Danny tells them that there will also be a membership fee of $1000 that will be donated to AIDS research. Danny says he will find a way to make a profit with the accountant while at the same time donate something to charity. He informed them all that this would make the casino totally legal.

Alan goes to Danny and tells him that he had a nice save and that he is very impressed by the new club. He and Claire go to gamble and meet up with Jim. Alan tells Jim not to waste all his money because he can't afford it. Jim challenges Alan to a game of blackjack.

Pilar apologizes to Danny for her mistake. Danny says at least the church will benefit.

Phil decides to gamble, to make his donation to charity. Buzz asks Harley why she was interrogated Selena this morning. She mentions the Blake interview and connection with the book. Buzz says Selena just talked about her life, and Blake got the rest from the newspaper. Buzz says Selena shouldn't have gotten involved with Blake. Harley says he was right. Buzz wants to know how she is doing with Phil. Harley tells Buzz about the financial agreement with Beth and Jim. Buzz doesn't like it, but Harley thinks it is a good idea. Harley does think Jim's pride was hurt but she will talk to him about it.

Harley goes to Jim and thanks him for going along with the financial deal. Jim thinks in the long run it will help. Harley says the money is for the kids. He should think of it as insurance. Jim says like if he dies. Harley says she thinks Jim and Beth will have more children and Phil can be a distant memory. Phil is still gambling when Harley comes over and tells him Jim is okay with the deal. Phil says they are all trying to be more flexible. Phil thinks there may be light at the end of the tunnel.

Marah tells Holly and Olivia that she was dumped by her date and she doesn't know where her mother is. Olivia tries to reassure Marah about Reva and tells her that she will be fine. Holly says that it is good to express your anger. She tells Marah as she get older, you tend to hold on to your emotions until you have time to deal with them and it is healthy to let them out. She tells Marah that Josh and Olivia are just handling their worry differently but they are still worried. Olivia is impressed with how Holly handled Marah.

Pilar almost spills something on Vicki. Vicki tells David that she almost thought Ruth was there and she knows Ruth was responsible for that waiter spilling the drinks last week. Vicki tells him that she doesn't like Ruth and says she has a thing for David. Vicki hates when Ruth plays the pity angle and makes snide remarks on Ruth's life choices. David defends Ruth. He says everything was handed to Vicki. Vicki says David had it easy too. They argue and David walks away.

Danny asks Claire if Michelle would approve of her being in the club. Claire says it seems like Danny has moved on. Alan wants to know the real deal on Danny's club. Danny says the deal is how he explained it. It is an after hours private club. He says the profits will be donated to charity. Alan is impressed with his creative accounting. Alan offers Claire a membership and asks Danny if he prefers cash. He tells him, "Always"

Beth and Jim toast to their future. Beth thinks the arrangement with Phil will work and let them be free. She says maybe they could have another baby of their own. Jim would love that, but not right now. He says they can't afford it. The house is too small. He wants to be in a better financial position. Maybe Beth can go back to work for a while before they think about it. Jim kisses her and says he wants it too, someday.

Buzz tells Harley that Selena is probably asleep and he thinks he should go home. He kisses Harley and leaves. Rick wants to toast his good pal, Phillip; he hasn't punched or been punched all evening. Rick wants to know how things went with Jim and Phil and Harley tell him they think it went okay. Phil wants Harley to have peace of mind. Rick asks what he will get Harley to give her peace of mind? A new sports cars or a trip to the Riviera. Harley likes the idea. Rick leaves.

Frank gives advice to David about making up with Vicki. David goes back over to her and she said she almost left. David wants to get things straight about Ruth. Vicki says he always defends Ruth but not her. David says Vicki sometimes treats Ruth badly. David says they should avoid Ruth as much as possible. Vicki can do it but doesn't believe David can.

Marah is getting madder wondering where Tony is. She is going to leave. Josh tells Olivia he will be staying at Reva's and sleeping alone again. He will go home and Olivia is going to stay and ride home with Billy and Holly.

Alan wants to have a little fun and tells Jim that he donated money in his name to the church so he wouldn't have to go broke. They challenge each other to blackjack. Beth wants to leave, but Jim says Alan is on his turf now and that he is really good at cards.

Tony comes in to see Abuela. He tells her he got hit and cut on some glass and that he had to knock Selena out and she was also cut on some glass. She asks him if he retrieved what she wanted and he hands her the locket. She looks inside and is shocked to see a picture of Miguel.
