Michael has a duty to handle things a certain way or he too will be in trouble with the law.

Michael has to move on this soon. Jack begs him for a little time to talk to his sister and see how best this should be handled… Daniel is alone in the apartment. Devon and Sierra arrive. “Hey we haven’t spent much time together lately. What do you say we hang out?" Daniel lets the kids in. Then Mackenzie arrives, and the Colleen arrives. “Hi Mackenzie. Where is JT?"

There is one more guest to arrive and Colleen is the one to open the door to Kevin. The party turns ugly. Colleen makes it clear that she doesn't want Kevin there. Mackenzie sticks up for her friend, reminding Colleen that this isn’t her house and that Kev has every right to be there. Devon, Sierra, and Daniel all tell how Kevin has changed and has brought meaning to their lives. “How sweet," Colleen says. “I should call the pope and tell him that there has been a miracle.” Colleen again asks Mackenzie where JT is. Mackenzie has to wonder if the only reason that Colleen came was to see if JT would be there. “I only ask as it seems that you and JT are joined at the hip every other time that I see you two," Kevin feels that he really should leave now that the girls are fighting. Colleen finally breathes a sigh of relief and takes her coat off. “Now we can really enjoy the party," she says. “Oh Daniel! I did try to reach Lily for you but I couldn’t get through.” Devon hears this and is angered. “What? You were pretending to be over Lily all this time and you were getting Colleen try to reach her?"

He tells her that Jack has filed an injunction and is in the process of stopping them from working on the project even before they get off the ground. Ashley hears her father talking to Abby about her case. John promises Abby that nothing is going to happen to Ashley and he will make sure of it. She believes him. Later Ashley tells her father that he shouldn’t say things like that as there is no way that he can help her. “I can help," John says. “I know that you didn’t shoot Tom. I did! I went to the alley and all the memories came back to me. Michael followed me there and then brought me home. I am going to make things right Ashley. Promise me that you will not tell Gloria about this yet.” Ashley is upset. She doesn't want her father to confess to the DA. “I am a woman and I have a better chance at getting off the charges," she says. John will not listen. “I have to do this. What about Abby?" The cell phone rings. Ashley answers to Jack. He tells her to go into the study. “I have to have a conversation with you in private.

Victoria says that she was been a child of divorce and she knows how they think. “Abby has just been pushing everyone’s buttons lately. Every grownup around her drops whatever they are doing to cater to her if she says that she is sad. I think that she needs to get over what happened to her mother and go back to school. I am a child of divorce Brad.” Brad knows that but really has to firmly disagree with Victor on this. “You are not a parent.” Victoria knows that but is tired of keeping the dirty little secret of their engagement. “When is this going to be over so that we can get on with our lives?" Brad knows that Abby can’t deal with any of this right now and so has to delay the announcement of their engagement a little longer. Victoria is really felling like an outsider. “I think that Abby needs to see me as an equal partner Brad.” Brad can’t give Victoria that right now. “Well then," she says. “I guess that I will just go ahead to work…” Brad tells her that she can go if she wants. “Not because I want to Brad, but because I am afraid that I will say something that I will regret.” She starts leaving when she hears a tiny voice. “Victoria…” Brad and Victoria turn to see Abby making her way down the stairs. “I need help with my school project.” Victoria looks at Brad who gives his blessing for Victoria to stay and help out. He kisses Abby’s forehead deciding that he should be the one to go ahead to work.
