Alan and Alexandra had an argument about the conflict going on with Alan, Phillip, and Olivia. Alexandra told Alan he needs to mend relations with his son.

At the Lewis's, Marah is outside her house when someone came up behind her and touched her shoulder. It was Olivia. She had scared Marah and when she screamed everybody came running.

Her sister sent Jonathan to Switzerland to boarding school because her husband had become abusive. She gave Reva the information on how to contact him. Tony surprised Marah by taking her to the lighthouse where he had fixed it up so they would have a place to be together and get away from all the excitement.

Word got back to Alexandra via Edmund on finding Gus and Harley at Roy Baker's apartment and Alexandra went to see them. She told them again to stop investigating her.

At Company

Harley told Gus when she got up out of bed he was gone. She told him that his mother's ring had a story. Gus said he found the funeral director that buried Jane Doe, and his father paid for the funeral. He thought that someone destroyed the autopsy. Gus thought that maybe this woman was having an affair with his father. He said they sent out an announcement of his arrival, which would mean that he was adopted. Gus said if this was true, his life was a lie. But Harley tried to convince him that he still belonged to his parents because they both loved him. She felt his parents were trying to protect him. He told her he didn't know what he would do without her. Harley had to leave to go to the jewelers to get the ring appraised. She told him she loved him. Harley exits.

The jeweler exits to retrieve some pieces of jewelry that Edmund may be interested in. When he returned, he found Edmund looking at Harley's ring. The jeweler told him that the ring wasn't for sale. After writing something on a piece of paper, Edmund exits. He called Alex and said he didn't get the ring. He told her he saw it and needed her help.

At Cedars hospital

Friday, January 31, 2003

Gus went to see Roy Baker in the hospital. He appeared unconscious from the stroke but Gus believed he was awake. He told him he knows that he was in with the Santos family and told him he knows about the Jane Doe and the safe deposit box. He grabbed his head a few times and said how easy it would be to kill him and kept telling him to open his eyes. He told him that he was going to make him pay when he found out what was in the safe deposit box. When Gus walked out, Roy opened his eyes! When Gus left Roy, he had his blood taken to have a DNA test ran on it. When Gus showed up at Company looking for Harley, he wasn't looking well. When Buzz noticed he was looking sick, Gus said he thought he was coming down with a "bug."

Alex was desperate to get a hold of Edmund to see if he got to the safe deposit box and was also dealing with Alan and Phillip arguing over Olivia. Phillip called Olivia a fickle tramp and told Alan he could have her and that him and the kids were moving out. Edmund finally showed up with a small brown envelope from the safe deposit box. There was a bracelet inside. Harley went to pick up the appraisal on the ring owned by Gus's mom and found out it had no value but had a 3 digit number engraved on it. Harley went to the safe deposit box and found it empty and knew Alexandra had something to do with it. She went to see her and told Alexandra she knows she's behind the safe deposit box being empty. Harley accused her of snooping around in Gus's past to gain more evidence for Phillip so she can't have Zach back. Alexandra tried to defend her self and explain that was not why but Harley stormed out saying she'll never trust her or any of the Spaulding's again. Harley was due to meet Phillip and Zach at the ice rink to skate. When she got there, Phillip was talking on his cell phone and Zach saw Harley. He ran to meet her and ran right in front of a car!
