GL by Richard
At the docks, Rick expressed his anxiety to Frank that his very
first job as Medical Examiner is to do an autopsy on the body of the man who
previously filled the position. Frank told Phillip and Olivia that the police
will still continue in their search for Alan. Phillip approached Alexandra and
Gus, just as Alex was about to spill the beans about drugging Alan. Phillip took
Alex back to the mansion. At Harley's, she saw Alan wielding the fireplace poker
in a mirror's reflection and quickly put a halt to it, subduing him in time.
Afterwards, Alan told Harley he was scared to eat the food she'd given him.
Harley eased Alan's mind by eating some of the food, then telling him that she
and Gus are the "good guys". When Gus returned home, Harley told him
about Alan's attempt to kill her and said she's nervous with Alan under the same
roof as Zach. Gus told Harley that before Alan goes anywhere, he wants to get to
the bottom of why Alex wanted Alan drugged. Alan, who overheard, uttered the
words, "the will". When Gus asked Alan what he meant by that, Alan
said he didn't remember. Alone with Harley, Gus surmised that if something
happened to Alan, then succession of control at Spaulding would move on to the
next person in line, and that Alexandra hates Gus' guts. Harley told him not to
try to figure any of this out and told Gus to kick Alan out and hand this matter
over to the cops---reminding Gus that she's on medical-leave and that he is
suspended. As Alan listened nearby, Harley told Gus that the real Alan Spaulding
is a snake and that it's only a matter of time until he becomes that man again,
telling Gus she doesn't want him to get hurt. Just as they were arguing over
Alan, Frank stopped by.

Cassie advised Edmund ditch the idea of flowers and tell Beth face-to-face how he feels. When Edmund saw Beth, he awkwardly asked if she could forgive him and somehow get their friendship back. She told him it might be a tough task to be friends and that she'd think about it---then told Edmund that she's noticed he's become smitten with Cassie. Edmund was shocked at this, and denied it. Later, when Cassie noticed a preoccupied Edmund, she asked how the talk with Beth went, and he told her it wasn't so bad. Cassie told him there's hope: that time heals all wounds. Edmund thought about those words, then overheard when Cassie got a message to meet Danny at a construction site. Later, after Cassie arrived at the construction site, it seemed quiet and deserted, so Cassie called out Danny's name. Suddenly, Ernie appeared, and with a mean look, slowly approached Cassie. When she turned to leave the area, another man stepped out of the shadows, blocking her way. Cassie was trapped---not to mention frightened.
At the Spaulding mansion, as Olivia was about to leave for her amnio with Dr. Sedgwick at Cedars, Phillip asked her to get a paternity test done, but Olivia told him that with all that's going on, now's not the right time. When Phillip saw Alexandra, he asked her why she was huddled with Gus earlier, but Alex only said that Gus saw she was greatly upset and wanted to help her out. When Phillip asked Alex, point-blank, whether or not Gus is Alan's son, and that Harley told him that, Alex got indignant. Not satisfied, Phillip told her that his main focus right now is on finding Alan---and told Alex to stay out of the situation. Alex reminded Phillip that Olivia is carrying a Spaulding baby, which is "power", and that Olivia will use the baby like a pawn in a chess game. She then pressed Phillip to find out the paternity of the baby. After Phillip left, Beth came by and asked Alex if there was anything she could do to help the family right now. Seeing how anguished and alone Alexandra was, Beth offered to move back into the Spaulding mansion with James for a while. Tearfully, Alexandra accepted. At Cedars, Phillip arrived just after the amniocentesis was completed and Olivia and Dr. Sedgwick were looking at the monitor where the baby's ultrasound image played out. After Dr. Sedgwick told Olivia that she has to send the amniotic fluid to the lab for tests, Phillip left Olivia behind and followed the doctor out. When Phillip asked Dr. Sedgwick whether the amniotic fluid would also signify the paternity of the baby, Dr. Sedgwick said it would, but was very firm with Phillip, telling him that it's Olivia's call to have that test done. Phillip stared off......
