AMC Recap Written by Mary

Annie sits in a chair in the living room of the Chandler mansion when J.R. comes in from the patio. Annie tries to talk to him about their relationship, but he puts her off. Annie confronts J.R. about when his divorce will be final, but once again he puts her off and calls her crazy. After she adamantly protests, J.R. apologizes for using such an offhand comment. Tad and Damon sit at the bar at Krystal’s diner. Damon lets Tad in on his plans that he is going to Washington to crash on a friend’s sofa while he DJs. Tad doesn’t like that idea too much, but what can he do since it is Damon’s life. Ryan meets up with Liza in the corridor of the hospital. Ryan suggests that Liza defending David and being his advocate is a conflict of interest. Liza reminds Ryan that he should be telling Greenlee this since she was the one who married David. In his hospital room, David reminds Greenlee that she is still married to him. Greenlee tells David that she is with Ryan now and there's nothing he can do about it. David feels that she is underestimating him if she thinks that that will stop him. J.R. tries to make Annie believe how much he cares for her and how much he needs her. Annie tells him to prove that he loves her by setting up the date to finalize his divorce from Marissa. J.R. claims that Marissa has to schedule it. Marissa comes in the front door and yells for J.R. J.R. orders Annie to leave. Damon tells Tad that he hopes that he will understand his having to leave town. David reminds Greenlee of the many times that Ryan let her down, and that this time will be no different. Greenlee doesn’t believe David and asks that he sign the divorce papers. Damon leaves Tad at the diner to go to see Angie about his ADHD. Opal joins Tad and apologizes for being late because she was Tweeting. Tad asks Opal to help him to plan a going-away party for Damon. Damon runs into Liza at the hospital and asks about Colby. Liza assures Damon that Colby loves him. Damon returns the sentiment, but knows that he cannot stay in town and see Colby every day knowing what he did. Greenlee asks David why he is trying to make her doubt Ryan. Marissa lets J.R. know about the parent/teacher conference and asks why he wasn’t there. He lies that there was an emergency with Chandler Enterprises. Marissa also asks J.R. why he didn’t schedule the hearing to make their divorce final. Annie listens at the door. After Marissa leaves, Annie lashes out at J.R. for delaying the divorce. J.R. promises that he will set the divorce date immediately.

Liza tells Tad about her setting Damon up at a law school in California, but she doesn’t want Tad to let Damon know that it was her idea. Now Tad has to decide whether or not to tell his son. David relives the night of the party and wishes he had let Greenlee go then. David agrees to sign the papers if Greenlee will help him to sit up in bed. Ryan watches from the doorway. Greenlee urges David to make the best of this second chance that he has been given. Greenlee hugs David and thanks him for letting her go. Greenlee walks out of David’s room and into Ryan’s arms. Tad lets Opal know that Liza helped Damon to get into law school in California. Annie spends time with Emma at Krystal’s and finds out that Ryan and Greenlee are getting married. J.R. and Marissa walk in with a box full of decorations. Annie is surprised to see them together. J.R. asks Annie what she is doing there. When Tad tells him about the opportunity in California, Damon is hesitant at first but then is happy about the move. Liza visits David and lets him know that he will transferred to prison to await his trial as soon as the doctors decide he's well enough. David informs Liza that he heard every word she said when she told him about having sex with Damon. At the condo, Ryan and Greenlee make wedding plans and set the date. Annie imagines that Marissa is once again warning J.R about Annie. Annie also imagines that Emma is against her. Annie grabs her head to make the voices stop. Emma and J.R. ask Annie if she is all right. J.R. leaves Marissa alone at the restaurant to finish decorating for the party. Annie sneaks in, picks up scissors off the table, and approaches Marissa while her back is turned.
