'Arlene' is resting on the couch at Mateoís house while Mateo watches her sleep. She awakes and he rushes over to see her and assure her that everything is okay. She tells him to come to bed, but he is not tired. He is just glad that she is feeling better. He kisses her and then she speaks to him in that voice that he knows doesnít belong to Hayley. "Why wait now sweetie? There is no time like the present." She tries to pull him to her, but he resists. He offers to make her some pancakes. She gets upset with him for not wanting her. She tries to leave, but he restrains her. He shows her pictures of him and Hayley together. The picture was crumpled up and Mateo smoothes it out and she looks at it. She thinks that the people in the picture look happy and in love. He tells her that he loves Hayley with all his heart. He wishes that she would come to him. He is waiting for her. She tells him again that Hayley is gone. He tells her that he is waiting for her. He assures her that nothing bad is going to happen to her or Arlene. She grabs her head and tells him to leave her alone. Something is happening. He makes her sit and he massages her shoulders. He tells her to tell Hayley to come back because he is waiting for her. Adam bursts through the door and asks if Hayley is okay. "What is it dear? Did Arlene hurt you?" 'Arlene' elbows him the gut for that remark. She tells him that Hayley is gone forever. Adam doesnít understand. Mateo tells Adam to give 'Arlene' a break. Adam stands by and watches this exchange not sure that he completely understands. Mateo tells her that later he will show her a good time, but wants her to go and freshen up. She leaves and Adam demands to know what is going on. Mateo tells him that Hayley thinks that she is Arlene. She is trying to live in place for her mother. Adam is having a hard time with this explanation. Mateo looks at the handwriting on the back of the picture again. He shows it to Adam. It is really Hayleyís writing. Adam is starting to get the picture. Hayley is responsible for everything that has been happening. Adam wants to go and tell the police that Hayley has finally left town. He thinks that he can send Hayley to a little hospital somewhere. She can get treatment there and then come back when she is better. Adam reaches for the phone, but Mateo grabs it out of his hands and throws it down. Every time that Adam has put his hands in the pot, something has gone wrong. Mateo tells him that he will take Hayley and get her well himself. Adam doesnít think that he can handle this. Mateo tells him that he was getting through to Hayley before he arrived. He needs to take her away until it is safe to come back to the house. Mateo wants to take her to the beach. 'Arlene' comes back and demands to know why this piece of garbage is still there. Mateo asks if she is ready to go. "You have no idea." They leave Adam standing there in the room alone.
Erica is with Opal and Jack at the restaurant. She is in a particularly good mood that morning. She tells Opal that she had a good night with Bianca and they are finally starting to get something good going with each other. Erica took some steps to move some stumbling blocks from their lives. Opal and Jack are not sure that is necessarily a good thing, but give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe Erica has finally realized that she canít change Bianca into something that she is not. Erica proposes a toast to the Glamorama Website. Bianca walks in furious. She accuses of Erica of paying off Rain to leave town. Bianca thinks that they have to talk about this right now. Erica tells her that this is not the time or place to talk about this. Jack tells Bianca to sit down and talk to them about what is going on. He wants to avoid a scene. Bianca explains that she had Rain over to get her out of the cold. Erica kicked Rain out and then paid her $10,000 to leave town. Erica admits that she paid the money. She had Rain admit that she would never be with Bianca again. Rain went to buy a ticket to leave town and was seen with a big wad of money. She was hauled in for questioning as to where she got the money. Erica isnít feeling sorry for Rain. She got what she deserved. Bianca tells her that the reason that she really hates Rain is that she thinks that they slept together. Erica thinks that she deliberately misinterprets everything that she does and says. Bianca knows that Erica wants Bianca to be just like her. Jack tells the both of them that this is enough. Bianca thinks that it is too late to be like her mother. She tells her mother that she was much younger than Bianca is now when she first had sex. Erica leaves the table, clearly upset. Opal tells her that she didnít say the right thing. Erica was raped when she was 14. She wasnít thinking when she said that to her mother. Opal tells her that her mother would never deliberately her hurt. Bianca only sees shame and embarrassment in her motherís eyes. Jack thinks that things would have been easier if she hadnít taken off from school and run off. Bianca thinks that everything has to be on Ericaís terms. Opal tells her that everything has always been on Ericaís terms. Jack tells Bianca that Opal is right. They want her to try even harder to get along with her mother. Opal offers to help as well. Erica returns and tells Opal that everything is fine with the Glamorama contracts. Bianca wants to talk some more, but Erica will not discuss anything with her. Erica tells her that she really ruined Opalís celebration and she is very disappointed. Bianca realizes once again that this isnít going to work. She stomps off. Erica refuses to talk about her personal problems anymore. She wants to talk business. Opal knows that dealing with Biancaís news is hard for Erica. Erica is setting boundaries for her daughter and her daughter accuses her of being a bigot. Even so, knowing that bribing Rain would backfire, she shouldnít have acted the way that she did. Erica thinks that Rain should have the sense to go away. Jack tells her that removing Rain doesnít solve any problems. Maybe she was wrong to pay the girl off, but she is trying to help her daughter. This is one of the worst crises that Erica has had to deal with in her life. She also understands that Bianca is not having a day in the park either. Erica wishes that Biancaís life was the way that it used to be. Opal hasnít got any ideas, but she has been through some things in the past that were similar, but at least she tried. Erica affirms that she loves her daughter and Bianca knows that.
