Cassie is at Company preparing to throw a children's party when she discovers the clown she hired has cancelled. Jeffrey arrives in black-tie and tells her he left a room full of lawyers to see if he could help her with the party. Jeffrey is shocked when Cassie announces to the children 'Jeffardo the Magnificent' has arrived to entertain them with magic tricks. After trying to convince Cassie he doesn't know any magic tricks, he agrees when she promises some magic of their own after the party.

Edmund and Dinah are in her suite planning how they are going to deceive Cassie into believing Dinah is still pregnant until the baby should be born. Dinah tells Edmund she lost a part of herself when she miscarried and asks him to give her a child of their own to love. Edmund firmly tells Dinah a baby between them is not in the plans. Cassie's complete suffering can be their only goal. They make love and afterwards Edmund awakens to an evil voice in his head encouraging him to hurt Cassie. He dresses to find Cassie at Company.

At the courthouse, Frank is trying to convince Mallet to remain in Springfield, but he thinks it's time for him to leave since Harley has been cleared of Phillip's murder. Gus and Harley arrive and tell Frank that Gus received a tip Alan was seen at the docks near an abandoned office building. Harley convinces Mallet to accompany them in their search for Alan.

Alan is preparing to enter a room in a deserted corridor when a woman approaches and tells him she has seen the morning paper. Alan cuts her off by saying 'Don't believe everything you read, doctor.' The doctor unlocks a door. Alan enters and greets Phillip, who is seated behind an executive desk reading some papers. He approaches his son with caution and tells him he is looking well. Phillip ignores the remark and tells his dad he's glad to see him because he's having some trouble with a property on the east side. Alan tells his son that whatever the problem is, he is sure he can handle it. He tells Phillip the time has come to hand over the reins of Spaulding because he has to leave and may not return for a while. Phillip appears lucid and asks if the children are okay. Alan assures him the kids are fine and shaping into perfect little Spauldings. He says goodbye and prepares to leave since Phillip has a 'board meeting.' He watches from the door as two orderlies enter the room and Phillip emerges from behind the desk wearing pajama bottoms beneath his shirt and tie.

In the hallway, Alan leans against the door and promises he will always keep Phillip safe. He's interrupted by Harley and Gus who tell him not to run. Alan runs but is blindsided by Frank who slams him against the wall and handcuffs him. Later in the courtroom, Harley taunts Alan with a life behind bars the way he intended it to be for her. Alan sneers at her and Gus, telling them they think they know so much but they know nothing. They will never pin a murder charge on him. Harley wants to stay and watch Alan being led away to jail but Gus convinces her they should leave. He takes her to her house and tells her they are finally home.

Jeffrey then tries to point out that the DA's office can make Alan's prison stay a little easier but Alan still refuses to budge and asks to call his lawyer. Jeffrey allows it and gives Alan some privacy. Alone, Alan places a call--but not his lawyer. He ends up calling the doctor who is taking care of Phillip. The doctor has read about Alan's situation and is concerned about how she and her staff will get paid if he's sent to jail. Alan tries to convince the doctor that he's not going to prison but she's not convinced. She's only concerned with being paid for her services and if she isn't paid tonight, Phillip is on his own.

Tammy, at Company preparing for Cassie's baby shower leaves a message for Sandy telling him how much she wants to make their relationship work and that she loves him, As she hangs up, Blake enters and asks if she meant what she said. At first, Tammy ignores the question but then becomes concerned that she sounded fake. Blake points out that it did sound rehearsed but brushes it off as normal--people do usually think out what they're going to say. Blake asks how things are with Sandy and Tammy states that he's great; he's what every girl should want. Blake picks up on the "should" and tries to give her some advice about sticking with a nice guy like Sandy. Although Tammy states that everything's fine with Sandy, Blake is wondering if there isn't somebody else she's attached to. Tammy denies it and goes to get her mother for the surprise shower.

Cassie is at the hospital waiting for Dinah's pre-natal exam. Dinah tries to convince Cassie to wait outside but Cassie insists on staying. Cassie then makes a move to touch Dinah's stomach in an effort to feel the baby kick. Luckily, just as she's about to touch Dinah's fake belly, Edmund rushes in and distracts her. Cassie gets confused when Edmund acts like he wants her to leave, but Edmund buys some time by getting Cassie to leave for ten minutes so Dinah can relax. Cassie agrees but insists that she will see the sonogram. With Cassie in the hall, an upset Dinah lashes out at Edmund because they almost got caught. Dinah tries to get Edmund to see that their plan is flawed, Cassie is going to find out they're lying, especially since there won't be a sonogram. Throughout all this, Edmund is furiously fiddling around with the sonogram machine.

While Cassie's waiting in the hall, she's pleasantly surprised to see Jeffrey who has plans to take her for a romantic dinner. After playfully pointing out that the newborn baby is going to change their lives and he should get out while he can, Cassie goes back into the room for the sonogram. However the doctor can't begin the procedure because the machine is broken; they'll have to reschedule. Meanwhile, Tammy has come to the hospital and told Jeffrey that he can't take her mother out--he has to bring her to her shower. Disappointed that the sonogram was cancelled, Cassie is further disappointed when Jeffrey states that he's canceling their dinner plans--he just feels like getting takeout from Company.

Harley (basking in the afterglow of making love to Gus) comes to Company for the shower. Alone with Blake, Harley shares the happy news of her engagement. However, Blake doesn't seem too excited since she makes the comment that they didn't waste any time. She then asked her to explain her comment. Blake states that she has concerns that Harley may be rushing into things and brings up Mallet. Blake tells Harley that she thinks Mallet still loves Harley and wants her back. Harley insists that she loves Gus. However, Blake's even more concerned when Harley states that she's forgiven Mallet for everything. Harley tries to explain that Gus is the love of her life and Mallet's just another ex-husband. She tells Blake that nothing will get in the way of her marrying Gus. Suddenly, Harley's phone rings. It's a friend of hers telling her that Gus is out the prison visiting his father. Worried, Harley rushes out.

Tammy's now come back to Company to help Blake. They hear footsteps at the door and assuming it's Cassie,, they shut the lights off and hide. However, it's not Cassie who enters--it's Dinah and Edmund. Dinah starts complaining to Edmund about her belly pad. Dinah's comments confuse Tammy. Meanwhile, just as Dinah is getting ready to remove the belly pad, Jeffrey opens the door to come in.

At the prison, Gus is wondering who was on the phone since the person hung up when he got on. Alan is not forthcoming with answers so Gus just gets to his reason for being there. He's taking over control of Spaulding and freezing Alan's assets. Alan is shocked and tries to explain that he needs money for legal fees but Gus states that he'll be given a court appointed attorney. Alan tries to appeal to him as his father, but an unmoving Gus states that Alan will be going for the rest of his life and nothing he can say can change that. Just then Harley arrives. Alan gets defensive and insists to both of them that he's not staying in jail. Rattled from Gus's news, Alan blurts out that he didn't kill Phillip. Gus and Harley think this is just a pathetic attempt and turn around to leave. Just then a desperate Alan blurts out that Phillip is alive.
