At Infierno:

Rick and Frank are talking about Phillip and Harley and watching May bartend. She brings them two of her special drinks. They talk about their own personal lives and laugh about how they are going to break up with each other so they can both pursue May. They are both fascinated by her and Rick tells Frank that at least one of their hearts will be broken. They tease each other and joke around and Frank tells Rick never to take advice on romance from Phillip. Rick wants to leave but doesn't know if he can trust Frank alone with May.

Marah arrives and Catalina wants her to talk to Tony. She says he is ready to forgive her. Marah isn't sure. She sees him come out of the office and notices he tries to look away. Marah goes over to him and tells him that she is wearing his gift to her, the St. Anthony's medal. He tells her to keep it as a souvenir. She tells him that Catalina taught him a prayer to St. Anthony for lost things. She tells him that she has lost a lot in her life but nothing hurt as much as losing him. Tony walks away from her but she follows him into the office. He asks her if she is going to follow him around all night. She tells him that she remembers when she first saw him and she knew he was different. She tells him that she sees more in him that other people see. He tells her that he sees her as more that a pretty face as well. She admits to him that she didn't know how he cared and she used him. She realized after they got to the motel that he cared a great deal for her. She then realized she had made a mistake and locked herself in the bathroom because she was scared of wanting something she wasn't ready for. Tony tells her not to feel bad about holding out; it is what girls do. He kisses her and she apologizes again. Tony kisses her and asks what he will do with her. He can't stay mad at her and can't make love to her. He wonders what he should do? She tells him to kiss her again.

At Phillip and Harley's:

Phillip comes down from checking on Zach and says he is smiling in his sleep. At least he is happy. Harley says until he grows up. Phillip thinks he may make better choices. He tells Harley she was the right choice. Zach is proof of that. They have something worth fighting for; he is not ready to give up. Harley doesn't want to fight. Phillip says he isn't going to let them quit. They pledged for better or for worse, so logically, better has to be coming soon. Harley cries. Phillip asks her if this is another failed marriage for both of them because he can't live with that. Harley says maybe the marriage effectively ended when the plane crashed. She knows Phillip wanted to make it work and she tried. She doesn't see any way out of this. Phillip says right now she can't stand the sight of Beth but that could change. Phillip says that Alan made his life miserable and he hated him for it. Now he understands him and just hates a part of him, but not all of him. He has learned to get past certain things. Harley teases Phillip that she is not Alan. They both laugh. Phillip says they still laugh at the same stupid things. He wants her to just give it a little more time. He tells her marriage is like running a marathon. You hit the wall then you have to get your second wind to finish. Harley says that was sneaky, because he knows she hates quitters. Phillip says she knows he loves her. Harley says they deserve to be happy. Phillip asks if she knows anyone who is really happy, married or single. He says maybe they are looking for a happy ending; they should try to be together and it is okay to be miserable. Harley laughs and says maybe if they both have a lobotomy; they joke about Rick getting them a 2 for 1 special. Phillip tells her no one makes him smile like she does. The phone rings and it is Edmund. He says the message was marked urgent so he read it. Phillip tells him he wants to talk to Beth. Edmund doesn't want Phillip to talk to her and Phillip reminds Edmund that Beth needed his permission to take the kids out of the country and he can rescind it. Edmund and Phillip argue. Phillip gives Edmund an hour to get Beth on the phone. Edmund hangs up. Phillip tells Harley Edmund is denying him access to his children. He says he may fly down there to bring his kids back. Harley tells him to go on, nothing is keeping him there anymore. Phillip says none of this is what he wants. Harley says he just doesn't want to admit to himself how he acts. Phillip is obsessed with Beth and something always happens. Harley almost believes it, but then something happens and he and Beth start their weird dance. Harley says she hates it and Phillip tries to disagree. He says he will get Rick to check on Beth. Harley tells him to go to Beth and let her (Harley) go. Phillip says he won't. Harley says she is doing it for him; he should go before they kill each other. Phillip asks if Harley wants him to choose between his children and her. She doesn't get to decide if their marriage is over. She tells him to go to San Cristobel . He says he will, but he has some say about the marriage. Harley says not anymore and Phillip says, "We'll see" as he leaves.

Harley has an armful of Phillip's clothes and throws them out the door hitting Rick with them. He asks her if he needs to starch any of these. Harley is not amused. He asks where Phillip is and Harley tells him that he left for San Cristobel . She tells him about what happened and says she has no idea why she hung on for so long. Rick tells her she hung on because she loves Phillip and then there is Zack. Harley thanks Rick for hanging in there with them the whole time but tells him that Frank and Buzz always knew it was over. Harley says she has to find herself again.

In San Cristobel:

Beth is talking to Cassie when a messenger brings a message in for Beth. Edmund intercepts it. Cassie and Beth go for a walk and Richard joins them. Edmund stays behind to read the message from Phillip and destroys it.

Beth, Richard and Cassie return and Beth asks Edmund why he didn't join them. She tells him they found a toad family and wants Edmund to see them with Lizzie. Edmund mentions Phillip's phone call but downplays it. He says he is going to see the toads with Beth. Cassie feels the baby kick and wants to stay behind. Richard asks her how she is. Cassie says she just wanted to spend time with him alone. Richard tells her he has given her nothing but problems. Cassie tells Richard she has forgiven him and had forgiven him from the first time he apologized. She just had to work through it for herself. He tells her she is generous and thanks her for forgiving him. She wants to be his wife and share his life with him. Richard kisses her. She never wants to leave him. Richard tells her that if this is a plot to undermine the monarchy, she and the baby are at risk. He wants her to go someplace near SF, to a place he has arranged. He can't come to see her for fear of jeopardizing her safety. Cassie is scared. Richard tells Cassie the plan but she doesn't want to leave him now that things are worked out between them. Richard tells Cassie that she is everything to him. She is carrying his child and has his heart with her. He kisses her again. Cassie will be in a convent. The nuns are beekeepers that grow their own flowers. Cassie is upset that he can't visit or phone. Richard says there is no other way. Cassie says it is okay and they will be together again. Richard tells her she is his heart and soul; they kiss again.

Susan, Beth and Edmund are sitting by a fire on the beach. Susan is listening to the ocean and quoting Homer from the Odyssey. Edmund tells her fire is more powerful than the sea. It purifies everything. A hero deserved a great funeral pyre. The body would be consumed and restored to perfection. He hugs Susan as Beth watches. Susan leaves the beach. She tells Edmund she knows he gave her the Odyssey for a reason and thanks him. Beth thanks Edmund for everything he has done. What he said about fire will comfort both Susan and her. She asks Edmund to put his arm around her. Beth thanks him. Edmund kisses Beth, then pulls away and says no. She kisses him again, this time more passionately. He looks into her eyes and Phillip comes onto the beach from behind some trees spotting the two.

Edmund kisses Beth while sitting on the beach. Phillip arrives and tells Beth he tried to call her and left messages because he wanted to check on the kids but Edmund kept intercepting them. Beth tells him that the kids are safe. Phillip asks her how he was supposed to know that since access to her or the kids has been denied to him. He tells her that he wants to check on the kids and he will be taking them home with him if they are not all right. Edmund asks Phillip how Harley and Zach are. Beth is upset that he came to check up on them and tells him that it is so very typical of him. They go inside the palace to talk. Edmund and Beth show Phillip into the family room. Phillip wants Edmund to leave them alone. Beth tells him he has a lot of nerve to come in to someone else's home and start demanding things. Edmund sits in a chair while Phillip talks to Beth. Phillip tells Beth he knows she has been going through a rough time and may be lonely. Beth says she came to SC to get away from Phillip and Harley and he should concentrate on Harley. Phillip ignores her and accuses Edmund of taking advantage of her and dancing on Jim's grave. Edmund says he was just giving Beth a break. Phillip says that Edmund made his intentions toward Beth well known but now he is involving Phillip's children. Phillip says he will be staying there until they get things straight. Edmund says by all means, lets get a few things straight. Phillip says he needs to speak about the children with Beth alone. Edmund waits for a sign from Beth and she tells him she will be ok. Edmund leaves the room. Beth tells Phillip he is being rude. Phillip reminds Beth of how Edmund's blackmailed them in the past and used Lizzie's illness to his advantage. Beth says it was a misunderstanding and says she thought he wanted to talk about the kids. Phillip says that he had reservations about this trip but let her go because of Lillian, Cassie and Richard's supervision. Now, he discovers her and Edmund at the beach alone together holding hands. Beth says he just interrupted a private moment between friends and it is none of his business. Beth and Phillip continue to argue over Edmund and Phillip mentions that Edmund censored his phone calls. She says Edmund may be overprotective of her but so is Phillip. Phillip tells her that he has a right to be. She gets very angry and tells him that he has no rights over her and that he gave all that up when he chose Harley over her. She tells him that Edmund has treated her honorably and did tell her about the calls. She tells Phillip she thinks he should leave but he refuses and says he wants to see the kids. Beth goes to get the kids.

Beth comes back with Lizzie, who is happy to see her dad. She hugs him and asks him what he is doing there. He tells her that he is there to check on her and he hopes she is having a good time. She tells him that it is the best and starts talking about how she and Edmund have been spending all kinds of time together. She loves being on the island. Phillip says they will have to take their own island vacation. Lizzie tells him that Edmund gave her a pony named Annabelle. She tells him that there is a cat in the barn that had kittens and they are just starting to open their eyes. Lizzie asks her dad if he will go and see the kittens with her. He tells her he will tomorrow. She tells him that Edmund will be giving her a riding lesson tomorrow and maybe he will give Phillip one as well. Lizzie tells Phillip when he goes to see the baby he should be quiet because Lillian had fallen asleep in his room. Beth takes Lizzie back to her room. On the way out the door Lizzie runs into Edmund and hugs him goodnight. Edmund comes into the room with Phillip. He offers him some cognac but Phillip declines. Edmund says he hopes Phillip has seen enough and will be leaving soon. Phillip asks Edmund why he wants to get rid of him and wonders if his intentions towards Beth are less than honorable? Edmund says he just wants to make Beth's life easier. Edmund says Phillip needs to see a shrink or a marriage counselor. He needs to give Beth space. Phillip tells Edmund he is going to stay awhile. Edmund tells him that is fine and he can even stay in the palace, however as soon as Beth wants him to leave, he will leave. Phillip thinks Edmund's royal power goes to his head. Edmund says he thinks Beth has suffered from Phillip's need to control her life and mentions that Jim saw it too. Phillip says that Jim detested Edmund. Edmund tells him that he and Jim came to a meeting of the minds. Edmund said Jim was a fine man and cared for his family but didn't like Phillip, which shows good judgment on his part. Phillip tells Edmund that he doesn't have any of Jim's good qualities either. Edmund said that is true but he doesn't have his shortcomings either when it comes to Phillip. He warns Phillip if he pushes him, he will push back. Phillip says, he is counting on it.

At Harley and Phillip's:

Harley is still throwing Phillip's things out the window. She tells Rick that Phillip should be in SC with his "real family" by now. She says he is out of her life for good. Harley calls Frank and he and Buzz comes over. When they get there they are bombarded by Phillip's clothes coming out of the upstairs windows. Rick answers the door. Harley has the rest of Phillip's stuff in the middle of the living room. Harley thought about setting them all on fire but might sell it instead.

Frank and Harley are talking about Phillip going to SC and Harley throwing Phillip's stuff out. Harley says she is okay and doesn't need an audience. Frank says they all love her and have lost someone too. Frank is happy, because he has his sister back. Harley says she was fighting for her marriage, but Phillip will never belong to her. She is finally doing something and it is better than sleepwalking through life. She says she is going to go back to work as well. Frank says she will teach Zach how to live and to be true to his feelings and she can cry on his shoulder anytime.

They are all dancing to the Greek music. Rick mentions that he wishes he were Greek. So he could be a Greek God. Frank teases and says Rick wants to be an Adonis like him. They are all drunk. Harley shows Rick how to dance Greek-like. Harley stumbles and he catches her.

She tells Lillian that Phillip left Harley home. She is upset about it and says she didn't want this to happen and now everyone will blame her for the damage to Phillip's marriage. Beth tells her mom that the worst thing is that Edmund has done so much for her and now he is in the middle of this mess when he was just trying to help her. Lillian tells her that she isn't buying it because she has been there when Beth invited Edmund into the middle of her relationships. Beth says that may be true but she doesn't want that anymore.

At the Lewises':

Marah calls Tony. She tells him that she can't stop thinking about him and wants to see him. Reva comes in the room with Marah and tells her that she better not be talking to Tony Santos. Marah lied and said that it was a girlfriend. She tells Tony she has to go but she would like to see him later. Marah hangs up and Reva tells her that her girlfriend has already applied to over 5 colleges and thinks Marah needs to be doing the same thing. Marah tells her that she isn't going to college and will support herself by being a model. Shayne comes down and tells Marah she will have to stop eating if that is her goal. Reva tells them all to sit down and listen up because there are to be some changes in the house. She announces that Noah will be moving in. The kids can't believe it and ask her what is up. Reva tells them Noah will only be there for safety reasons and will be sleeping on the couch. Shayne asks if it wouldn't be a bit crowded for two on the sofa. Reva tells him not to be fresh and assures them that Noah is just moving in to "make sure" they are okay.

Marah is alone in the house when Tony arrives. Marah kisses her and Tony backs off. He says he needs to talk to her. She thinks he is going to tell her that he doesn't forgive her but he tells her that isn't it. He says when she kisses him like that he can hardly breath and it kills him because he knows it isn't going to go any further. So he thinks if it isn't going to go any further they shouldn't even go that far. That way he isn't frustrated and she doesn't have to worry about saying no. She smiles at him and sits on his lap. Tony asks if they are alone and she says they are. He kisses her again but tells her that he doesn't want any trouble with her parents.

Outside, a thug is walking around the house trying to peer in.

At Company:

Perdita is on her cell phone. She calls Noah and asks him to join her, telling him she has something he wants very badly. As she waits she plays with a knife, chopping at her grapefruit and licking the blade. Noah finally shows up and Perdita tells him that she is not accustom to being kept waiting. Noah tells her he was with a patient. He asks why she called and she tells him that she has some news for him but he will have to make it worth her while. He tells her that they may come up with a mutually agreeable compensation. She says she would like to have dinner with him at Towers in her hotel suite. He agrees to the dinner but tells her that it will be at the dining room at Tower's and not her suite. Perdita says that she learned Rourke is in Majorca. Noah grabs his phone and calls Richard with the news, telling him that he will be in touch with more information. Perdita tries again to get Noah to meet in her room with her so they may also have dessert. He tells her that he cannot and tells her that he is moving in with Reva. Perdita wonders and Noah tells her that it is to protect her from her and anyone else with Agency ties. He tells Perdita to let it be known to all that to get to Reva they will have to go through him. Just then, Reva came in and apologizes for interrupting. Noah tells her that she is never interrupting; she is his fiancée. Reva tells Perdita she was hoping to talk to her about interviewing her about her art business. Perdita asks Reva to lend her Noah for dinner tomorrow night. Reva asks if that is business and Perdita asks Noah to explain. Noah says he and Perdita have some unfinished business to wrap up, but it shouldn't take too long. Perdita leaves and tells Noah she will see him soon. Reva asks Noah how oysters and a bottle of champagne will guarantee her safety. She tells him that she knows Perdita wants him and wants to know how much he will give her. Noah says he will just have dinner and everything will be fine.

Phillip arrives at Company, very angry. He found all his clothes out in the front yard and a note from Harley. He wants Frank and Buzz to tell him where she is. He knows they had a party after he left because he found the empty Ouzo bottles. Buzz says she left because she is his wife and he was out chasing after his ex all over the world. Frank tells Phillip he should have realized what would happen when he left for San Cristobel . Phillip says that Harley and had problems way before he went to San Cristobel .

Lizzie, Susan and Edmund come in to see Beth with a basket of stuffed kitties. Edmund said he got them all one, because the real kittens are too small to play with yet and they can all stroke their kitty until they can play with the real ones. Kind of surrogate kittens. Beth and Susan pick one to hold. Edmund tells them the more you caress something, the more you wonder whether you are the one touching or the one being touched. Susan selects an animal that looked like one Jim had when he was young. She is sad, thinking about how the only photo of that kitten was burned in the fire. They start remembering Jim and Edmund comforts her, telling her how good of a man her dad was. Susan and Lizzie leave to go to Susan's scuba lesson. Beth and Edmund talk about Phillip.

He thinks maybe Phillip is the selfish one. He reminds her that Phillip came down there on his own. Beth thinks she was baiting Phillip, but Edmund says she was just trying to take care of herself. He tells her that she is warm and nurturing but forgets to satisfy her own desires. He tells her that there is a lot more to the real Beth. Edmund holds Beth's arm and they sit on the couch. Edmund says that some of her generosity is to make up for what she thinks are her faults. He goes over her strong points but Beth thinks he is saying she is a manipulative narcissist.
