David returns home after jogging and grabs some water. But when he takes a drink, he passes out.
Krystal is at the restaurant eating a
shrimp cocktail. Adam meets her there
and tells her that he will buy her lunch and do some big favors for her, if she
can get the information he wants for him. She tells him she is pretty certain
that the woman who calls herself
When David comes to, he notices that Tad has tied him to a chair. Tad tells David that he will pay for every lie he has brought upon all of them for introducing “Di Kirby”.
There is a rescue team attempting to find Ryan and his motorcycle in the river.
After Danielle tells her mother that she had sex with Josh, she notices that Mimi is shocked. She asks Mimi where the love is, remarking that just before Dani revealed this information, her mother told her that she loved her. Now she has changed her tone. Mimi tells her daughter that she is shocked and that she did not raise her daughter to be that way. Dani then tells her mother that she knows her mother did not raise her or teach her to be anything better than what she has done. She knows that her mother shacked up with a dude named Lucas when she was married to Dani’s father and did not even know who her real father was.
Reggie goes to confront Josh and punches him for finding out that he slept with Danielle. JR appears and witnesses this. JR is there to talk to Erica. Josh protests to Reggie that he doesn’t need to get upset. It was just one night. Hearing that, Reggie asks Josh if he used and reduced Dani to that. Was she nothing more to him than “just a night”? Erica enters and wants to find out what is going on. But at that moment, she gets called away by a phone call from Jack; she knows it’s more important. She rushes off to help all the people who are looking for Ryan.
Greenlee is afraid that Ryan is dead. But
Kendall and Simone tell her that she must not be negative; it takes more than
an ocean to stop Ryan. And
David asks Tad what he put in his water and asks him if this is payback. He tells Tad he should be thanking him. He gave Tad Dixie. Tad saw the DNA test and should realize that she is the real Dixie Martin and it’s not David’s fault that she does not want Tad. Tad tells David he will not punish him for what he did not know and had no control over. He’s going to punish David for what he thought he was doing.
At the restaurant, Brooke tells Adam he
cannot stand seeing anybody else happy. He does not want to see JR back with
his mother; he does not want to share. Adam protests that this woman is
brainwashing his son. Brooke tells him that he wants to punish
Greenlee appears sullen and doesn’t know
what to say or do. Kendall and Simone get her to sit down with them. Zach tells
her she needs to eat and says he wishes he could tell them that there is a
happy ending just around the corner. However, he knows that Greenlee is an
intelligent woman who knows better than to believe something somebody tells her
because they think it’s what she wants to hear. He informs her that there is a
severe riptide, and it will be almost impossible for the coastguard to find or
save Ryan. Kendall and Simone then encourage
Greenlee to believe that very possibly Ryan didn’t even go into the water. He
might have escaped. Zach informs them that they found Ryan’s bike; it was
destroyed. Then he tells them the rescue team will not give up until they find
Ryan. Greenlee asks, was it all her fault? Did she kill her husband? She should have listened,
all those times when Ryan said he did not want a child. And she did not listen.
Kendall and Simone urge her not to blame herself and realize she only did what
she did because she loved Ryan. Greenlee says she knows she pushed Ryan too
David protests to Tad that he gave him
what he wanted more than anything else in the world...
Brooke tells Adam she remembers him
telling her that he wanted to change and become a better man. She asks if he
just used that as a line to get her into bed. Hearing that, Krystal tells him
that champagne could have worked better. Brooke leaves and tells Adam and
Krystal that whatever the two of them are cooking up, good luck. When she
leaves, Krystal asks Adam if Brooke was right. Are they both really
reprehensible to be finding out who is walking around with
Di/Dixie walks in and notices Tad tying and gagging David. She doesn’t seem to want to help David. Tad tells her he appreciates her not trying to stop him. She tells him not only will she not stop him, she wants to help him. They laugh...David is very upset.
Dani is ready to go out the door. Mimi tells her she must not walk out on her. Danielle reveals to her mother that this was her first time. Mimi tells her that she must talk to her and to Garrett. Dani asks if it will be where her mother talks and she listens. Garrett asks Dani to give them a chance. Mimi tells Danielle that she must have overheard her aunt Livia talking about Mimi’s “relationship” with Lucas Barnes. Danielle tells Mimi that she messed around and lied about it. Hearing that, Mimi gives up. Garrett tells her that she needs to be a little more understanding toward Danielle. He explains to Danielle what happened one night when her mother had a momentary weakness. Mimi loved Derek, but there was a problem when Derek came home from work one day. Then, she cheated on Derek, not unlike Dani’s decision to cheat on Reggie.
Adam tells Krystal that the two of them
are on the same track. He admits to her that he will stop at nothing to prevent
a woman from making his son into a weak little momma’s boy. And he’ll work with
her in order to do that. He tells her about all the naïve people in the world
who could brainwash anybody into believing the world is flat. She laughs and
tells him he has a way with words. Just then, Adam gets a call and confirms
with somebody that they are sure about something and that it’s verified. He
informs Krystal that his men have tracked down
At David’s, Tad tells Di/Dixie that she
must realize, once they wheel this “cockroach” out of here, there will be no
turning back. She tells him she’s as ready as he is to give David what he
deserves. She tells Tad that she did not know about half of David’s lies and
schemes. She also did not know about the calls from
Alone with Greenlee, Erica tells her stepdaughter that she really loved Ryan. He was a great man, not unlike Greenlee’s father. Hearing that, Greenlee demands that Erica not compare Jack to Ryan; Jack hated her husband. Erica protests to Greenlee that she must not believe that Jack did anything wrong or wanted to hurt Ryan. She urges Greenlee to talk to her father; she cannot let this drive her and Jack apart. And it’s not just about her and Jack anymore; there’s a baby to consider. They are all one family now.
Zach gets up to leave.
Garrett tells Dani that she turned to Josh the same way Mimi turned to Lucas; to forget the pain. He tells her it’s done; there’s no point in reliving it. Mimi tells Dani that when she was pregnant with her, she was so happy that she would have a family. Dani asks her why, then, did she keep it from her all these years? Mimi says the main thing is that her daughter is ok. Danielle goes out the door. Privately, Mimi tells Garrett that she is so bad at this “parent” thing. He tells her it’s not that hard. She asks how he’s gotten so good at it. He tells her that since he is not a real parent to her, it’s easy for him. He doesn’t have to lay down the law or inflict discipline upon somebody else’s child. She asks him how long he knew about this “thing” involving Danielle on the beach. He tells her that he found out about it, the morning after. Mimi confirms that Dani lied to her and asks how she can be on the outside of everything. He tells her that maybe he can help both of them. She hugs her fiancé.
After hearing David revealing that he might have a “mystery piece” to this puzzle, Di/Dixie asks David if it’s really true. But, she considers that maybe he’s just saying that because he is desperate and tied to a chair. She realizes that nobody would have any reason to believe a word he says. She asks Tad if he thinks they should throw David in the well now. Tad tells her no. David will never change. It looks like Tad and Di/Dixie are reconciling their differences with each other although both will never forgive David. Tad goes out the door. David laughs and tells her she may have Tad “duped”, but he knows what he knows.
Adam tells Krystal he is disappointed
Di/Dixie tells David that it’s time for him to admit he was wrong before it’s too late. He tells her it’s never too late, and she of all people should know that. She goes out the door. David notices he is still tied to the chair.
Erica asks Greenlee to talk to her father. Jack tells Greenlee how sorry he is. She snaps at him, asking if he means he is sorry that she is pregnant with Ryan’s baby, and sorry that she is bringing another Lavery into this world.
Right when the rescue team is trying to find Ryan, he is hiding in the bushes, awake and looking like he’s not hurt.
