It's been a long time since Guiding Light fans have seen Vanessa in Springfield, but she hasn't lost her spunk! She is furious that Cassie has threatened to place a restraining order against her and Ross for trying to help their daughter. But Ross has been fighting this fight for a long time, and wonders how long he can keep bailing Dinah out of trouble. Vanessa says they should help until Dinah starts to make good decisions - but Ross wonders if that will ever happen. To make matters worse, Ross sees that the front page newspaper headline is about him! "Mayor tries to kidnap daughter - fails!" is blasted on the front page and he hits the roof!

Also angry is Cassie who could not be blamed if she thought the whole world was going crazy around her because it is! She finds that Dinah is hiding her milk when she should be drinking it - Edmund thinks they should wait to tell the boys about Dinah's condition - and Ross and Vanessa show up at her doorstep seething with anger directed at her! Ross blames Edmund for the newspaper cover. Dinah rushes to Edmund's defense. Vanessa and Ross try to convince Dinah that Edmund is using her and that he will "throw her on the scrapheap" after the baby is born. Such an argument ensues that Dinah leaves the house, unnoticed. Cassie tells Ross and Vanessa to leave and after they do, she tells Edmund she wants him to leave, also. He thinks that maybe he will....and he'll leave town, too.

Tony is hurt and angry about the change in Michelle's attitude. Just a few days ago, she was ready to marry him - but now she insists on telling Danny how much she loves him and doesn't want to lose him. Tony convinces Michelle to go with him to the lake where "it all began," where he first started to care for her. Against her better judgment, she agrees. Meanwhile in another spot near the lake, Danny has taken Marina to show her the sunrise and to prove to her that he is "moving on." She wants to believe him, but she thinks he needs some time alone to think. She leaves to work at Company and Danny is left with his pleasant thoughts of Michelle. Tony, however, is starting to get rough with Michelle and grabs and shakes her. She screams at him to stop and Danny hears her. He yells at Tony to leave Michelle alone.

Blake is not happy to see Sebastian and Holly huddled in a corner in Olivia's bar. Sebastian is presenting the Spaulding deal to take over Holly's newspaper. Holly tells Sebastian it isn't a deal -- it's a "mugging." Sebastian agrees and tells Holly to refuse the deal but Alan appears out of nowhere and wonders what Sebastian is up to. Smooth as ever, Sebastian tells him he was bargaining with Holly, but gives up his spot in the negotiation to Alan. Holly and Alan come to an agreement after Holly remains on staff and on the newspaper's board. Meanwhile, Blake has questions for her brother. What is he up to? What does he want with her mother? Why did he take a job with Alan Spaulding, of all people? Sebastian admits to Blake that his plan is to bring the Spaulding organization down - exactly what their father, Roger, tried to do. Blake insists on helping him and he tries to turn her down. He reconsiders, however, when she tells him she used to work at Spaulding and understands the organization. The two go on to stage a little "argument" for Holly and Alan. Blake admonishes her mother for selling the paper to Alan and turns to Sebastian and calls him a traitor. She has a little too much fun when she throws a drink in his face and leaves the group in shock!

It's late when Harley has a surprise visit in her cell from Mallet. He has changed his tune about her memory of Phillip's murder and instead of writing it off as wishful thinking, he offers to help her to find out if the memory is authentic. Harley doesn't want Mallet's help but she tells him enough for him to go off on his own. He takes off, looking for answers and encounters Alan who is delighted to see him. In a not very subtle way, Alan encourages Mallet to look out for Harley so that Gus can find something else to do with his life.

Alan meets with Vanessa and does his best to reassure her that any worries she might have about Olivia, her new daughter-in-law are moot since he happens to know that Bill and Olivia are on the rocks. Thus, it comes as a major shock to Vanessa when she shows up at Bill's apartment to find the couple not only together but acting downright frisky in bed!

Marina is determined not to sit around pining over Danny, even though he hasn't called her as promised. Instead, she stays upbeat and pays a late night visit to her Aunt Harley. Eager for good news, Harley is overjoyed to hear that Marina's in love with Danny and that he is free now to treat her niece as she deserves. Meanwhile, Danny is at Laurel Falls, being confronted by a furious Tony who now knows about the night she and Danny made love. In his rage and pain, Tony hurls himself at Danny and during the struggle, they both go over the edge. Michelle manages to grab each of them but their combined weight is too much to bear. Realizing what has to happen, Tony makes the sacrifice and lets go of Michelle's hand, only to plummet into the water below. Once safe, Danny climbs down to retrieve Tony from the water and he and Michelle desperately begin CPR.

An upset Cassie tells Jeffrey that she won't have her son sent away to another country for schooling and he suggests that she contact the state department and hire a lawyer versed in international law. After promising Cassie that he will find her a good lawyer, he tells her she can't keep asking him for help, even though he will because he cares about her. Jeffrey tells Cassie that there is something between them. She either has to put herself into it or let it go, that's the only way they can go on with their lives.

Meanwhile, Dinah, who's been waiting for Edmund, finds herself stuck on the airplane when it takes off.

When they get back to the farm, Edmund assures Cassie that she won't lose Will. He tries to reach out and comfort her but Cassie pulls away.

When asked if she trusts him, Cassie maintains that she trusts him with this because she knows he loves the boys. She then gives him a hug. They almost kiss but again Cassie pulls away and tells him she's not ready for that. She suggests that maybe he can do more good in San Cristobel.

After "hanging up", Edmund assures Cassie that he will do everything to help her.

Danny and Michelle are outside Company talking about the funeral arrangements for Tony. In the course of talking about Tony, Michelle mentions what he did for them, prompting Danny to ask what she meant. Does she think Tony sacrificed himself for the both of them?

Just then, Marina comes out and berates Jeffrey for conducting his investigation so soon after Tony's death. She lies that Danny needs to pick up his son and asks Jeffrey to hold off until tomorrow. Jeffrey agrees and leaves. Meanwhile, inside Company, Frank asks Michelle about Tony's death and she tells him the entire story.

In the meantime, Danny has thanked Marina for helping him with O'Neill, and Marina has gone inside. That leaves Danny alone outside with Michelle. Danny insists that Michelle answer his question about why she called off the wedding. Did she want them back together? Michelle asks Danny, how he would feel if that was true. Danny confesses that a large part of him would take her back, yet at the same time, he's worked so hard to move on and he does care about Marina. Michelle asks him which part is stronger now, but Danny can't find it in him to answer her. But Michelle knows what the answer is anyway. Danny then goes inside Company wanting to talk to Marina. Marina's all set for a break up again, but Danny tells her he's grateful she's in his life; and confesses that he's hers. An upset Michelle watches the exchange from outside and then walks away.

A disgusted Harley says no; she's smelled so many samples her nose can't distinguish anything.

Mallet can't believe she even said that, but she points out that he keeping her away from the one person who can help her.

Mallet again reiterates that he is trying to help her. There's nothing between them any more which makes him the perfect person to help. But Harley doesn't want his help. As Mallet leaves the area, Buzz arrives for a visit. After some talk, he asks Harley if she's heard from Gus. Seeing her worried reaction, Buzz tries to shrug it off as nothing, but Harley is convinced something's wrong. She's convinced someone has gotten to Gus. Worried that Gus is in danger or about to be in danger, Harley keeps saying that she has to get out. Although she tries to talk Buzz into helping her get out, he tries to reason with her and tells her to help Gus from the inside. After Harley gets Buzz to leave, she spots Mallet and apologizes for the things she said earlier.
