Lena demands that Jackson do something about Cambias. Jack tells her that he is doing the best he can, and he will find some way to make Cambias go away for a very long time. Lena asks how Jackson could let him get away with it. Jack corrects her, it wasn't his fault, it was the law that set Cambias free. Lena doesn't care about the law. She wants Jack to swear to her that he will do something about Cambias. Jack loses his temper and asks why he should swear anything to the woman that lied and seduced his niece, the woman that slept with Michael Cambias.
Greenlee reminds Mary that she is the liar. She has lied to Greenlee all her life. Mary tries to convince Greenlee that Jackson isn't the man she thinks he is. Greenlee thinks that Mary is just doing this to drive a wedge between her and her father hoping that Greenlee will come running back to Mary. Why would she run back to a mother that never wanted her, Greenlee asks. Mary tells her that she always wanted Greenlee, she was never happier in her life than when she found out she was pregnant. She tells Greenlee that Jack wouldn't return her calls, and never responded to her letter. Greenlee reminds Mary that Mary told her before that she never mailed the letter. Is Mary
lying now or was she lying then? Mary tells her that she did mail the letter, and Jackson never responded. Greenlee wants to know why Mary is telling her this now. Mary says that she thinks Greenlee is strong enough to handle it now. Greenlee thinks Mary only wants her money. Mary tells her not to make her out to be the
villain. She could have done what Erica did, and adopted her out. She also could have had an abortion. She didn't do those things because she loved Greenlee. She wanted to give Greenlee a father, and when Jack didn't respond, she turned to Roger. Greenlee asks why Jackson would lie to her about knowing she was his daughter. Mary says because Jack always has to play the hero. If he admitted that he knew Greenlee was his daughter, it would have made him look like a dead beat father. This way, Jack gets to be the hero by pretending surprise and stepping in and being the father Greenlee always wanted. Mary tries to tell Greenlee not to think bad of Jack. He was young and
ambitious. Greenlee tells her mother to shut the hell up as she storms out of the condo.
Jackson apologizes to Lena. He didn't mean that. Lena tells him not to worry about it, he's right. She did use Bianca when she first came to town. She also slept with Cambias. She knew him better than anyone, she should have known he would hurt Bianca. Jack knows that Lena loves Bianca, and that Bianca loves her. They both agree that they are willing to give up their own lives to keep Bianca safe. Neither can stand the idea of him being out there, maybe able to hurt Bianca again.
Michael gets out a glass and pours some champagne into it. He tells himself that the rape was just a glitch, but he is past that now. He pats himself for being in charge of Fusion, Enchantment, and Chandler Enterprises. Soon, he will have Cambias Industries too. He toasts Alex again saying that the sooner he dies, the better.
Ryan tries to convince Alex that he is not dieing. Alex doesn't have time for this. He knows that he doesn't have much time and again asks Ryan to promise to carry out his dying wish.

Aidan has the two thugs tied up on the doc and goes to check on Opal. She is dressed all in black with sunglasses on. She tells Aidan thanks for his help and tries to leave. Aidan stops her and tells her the cops are on their way. Opal doesn't think calling the cops into this is necessary. She just wants to get out of there.

attorneys to figure out how to stop Michael Cambias from taking over Enchantment. Bianca tells Reggie that he doesn't have to stay there with her. She will be fine. Reggie doesn't think Bianca looks fine. He knows she has had a bad day, with the trial and all. He tells her how great she did with her testimony. Bianca gets a little light headed and sits down. Reggie goes to her side to see if she is okay. He tells her that Cambias is not going to get away with what he did, as the camera pans to the back of Reggie where we see a gun stuck in the back of his pants.
