Zach calls Livia and tells her he wants the legal authority to claim his son after his death.
Simone sits alone by Ethan’s
Krystal awakens in some abandoned place to find that JR has kidnapped her taken her to this cabin. She asks what the hell is going on. He pours some booze, telling her it’s breakfast and asks if she cares to join him. He tells her that she needs to know that her precious baby doll doesn’t care if she lives or dies.
Janet has returned to the cabin where she’s kept Babe. She says nothing and appears lost in thought while Babe acts friendly to her. She grabs some logs. Babe explains to her that the only reason that she attempted to break out was because she thought that Janet had abandoned them. She asks Janet if she is ok. Janet does not appear silly and happy anymore. She asks Babe if she looks ok.
Adam tells Tad that he’s worried because Krystal is missing. Tad is surprised to hear that.
JR informs Krystal that only 24 hours ago, he sent a text message to Babe telling her that he will end Krystal’s life if she does not bring his son back. He shows Krystal the text message that was sent back to him that says Babe does not believe he has her mom and even if he does, she does not care. Krystal is able to see it for herself but knows that her daughter would not do that to her. Krystal tells him that they have no idea who really sent that message nor do they have any way to find out.
Janet tells Babe that she knows Babe believes everything is all about her. It’s the Babe Carey Show. “Feel sorry for me.” She doesn’t seem to realize that the world does not revolve around her. All she cares about is herself. Babe tells Janet she’s sorry but Janet interrupts her telling her that she has a narcissistic disorder. It’s a clinical term. She informs Babe that she didn’t just spend all her time in that place playing checkers and weaving baskets. She learned some things. She asks Babe why she never had to go to a shrink because she thinks that Babe could use shock treatment. She might have that coming.
Zach tells Livia that she needs to
establish that Alexander Cambias, Jr. is Ethan’s father. He asks her, since he knows she has
represented Ethan, if she believes that his fatherhood to his son is “too
little too late.” She tells him that
that is not her function in all this. He
also gives her his will and tells her that he wants to change it so that in the
event of his death,
Meanwhile, Zach is alone in his office.
Livia sings at Ethan’s memorial service. Everybody gathers around. Not far away, Amanda enters unseen. She observes Simone crying and stares.
Janet locks the door to the cabin. Babe tells her she’s right about her. She admits she is selfish but she does care about some people. She cares about her little boy and her momma and she tells Janet she cares about her, also. She tells Janet it’s obvious that she’s hurting. She’s not sure what happened but she’d like to try to help. Hearing that, Janet tells her that she can give Babe that little shock treatment she talked about. She then informs Babe that JR might be killing her mother.
JR tells Krystal that he plays drinking
games. Every time you lie, you must take
a drink. First he says he’s never been
cheated on by a woman. He takes a
drink. He then says he’s never been
betrayed by his brother and takes another drink. He then says he’s never been manipulated by
lies and deception and drinks. He tells
her this is too easy. Krystal suddenly
realizes that he is hurting over Babe.
Observing that, she concludes to him that she can see that he really
does love her daughter. She asks what is
wrong with these
Adam throws a glass and tells Tad that
that whacko has his wife and may have his grandson. Tad tells Adam that if he and JR had taken
Jamie’s advice and gone after Janet Dillon instead of putting a price on Babe’s
head, then everybody would be back safe and sound. Janet would be locked up and getting the help
she needs. Adam tells Tad that he knows
that since his wife, her daughter, and his grandson are all missing, Janet
Dillon is preying upon his family. He
tells Tad he (Tad) has a lot to make up for.
Tad asks him what he has to make up for.
Not far away,
After Janet has informed her that JR wants to kill her mother, she gives Babe the cell phone with the text message he sent (believing Babe does not care). Babe frantically asks Janet if she text messaged JR back. Janet admits, smugly, that she was not certain what to say. Babe protests to Janet that JR believes that she has kidnapped their son and that’s why he’s holding Krystal hostage. Janet reminds her that she (Babe) did kidnap little A once before. Babe tells Janet she must help Krystal. Janet tells her it’s only appropriate that Babe should lose her mother since Janet lost her daughter.
Krystal tries to convince JR that Babe loves him. She tells him that it is his fault that he lost her, with all those pre-nups and everything. She tells him she’s not trying to judge him. She just wants him to know that this mess can have a happy ending. If he can just let her go, she can talk to Babe and she promises she will bring that little peanut home. He tells her he does not trust her. She tells him if he doesn’t want to untie her, he should at least contact Babe and attempt to work things out and not press any charges. She tells him that his only shot at getting both Babe and his son back is to trust her. She asks him if he really loves Babe and if he really wants his family back.
At Ethan’s funeral, Ryan speaks. He says that he and Ethan both worked hard to
define themselves not by their families or by their past, but by their
actions. He remembers Ethan’s kindness,
overwhelming generosity and unconditional love.
He says Ethan may be gone but not from their hearts. Simone gets up and tells Ethan she will never
stop loving him. The minister says it is
with these prayers that we commend his spirit to almighty God, and we let him
go to his final resting place. Simone goes
to the coffin and tells Ethan that she will always love him. As people leave, Simone starts to cry and
Livia informs Ryan that Ethan willed his Cambias shares to him. Ryan asks her why. She says it’s perhaps because Ethan realized he would never have had them in the first place were it not for Ryan. She admits that Ryan has run the company well. He asks her about Simone and she assures him that Simone has been well provided for in Ethan’s will.
After hearing Amanda’s startling revelation, Simone attempts to grasp that Amanda is now standing there at Simone’s fiancé’s funeral knowing all along that what happened was not an accident. It was caused on purpose. Amanda explains that they are looking for her mother now. She cries and informs Simone and Kendall that she just went to the police station and gave them a full report about her mother. She is trying, and failing, to find her right now. She thought for a long time that she could just get her mother out of town and get her under control. She tells them that she is so sorry. Simone is so distraught that she slaps Amanda across the face.
emotionally tells Babe that her daughter has betrayed her. She says she gave 200% to Amanda and all she
did was take. Hearing that, Babe says
she thought JR was bad. At least with
him, you know what his priorities are: his family. Janet tells Babe that Amanda promised to get

any more than he’d trust Janet. He
wouldn’t put it past Adam to help Janet kill those people. Adam asks Tad how he could say that. Tad tells Adam it’s because Adam could turn

Kendall goes to Zach’s condo and yells at him telling him he’s a bastard and he’s made her look like an idiot again for defending him. She cannot find Zach and demands he come out and show his face. She smashes things until he comes out of his room and restrains her.
Di asks Tad and Adam where JR is. He’s been gone a long time. Wouldn’t he want to stay there and make calls in order to nail Babe? Where could he be? Hearing that, Tad concludes that since both JR and Krystal are gone, that Janet did not take Krystal. JR did.
Krystal tries to negotiate with JR while
Babe tries to negotiate with Janet. JR
text messages Babe and tells her that if she does not bring his son back, her
momma is dead meat. Babe urges Janet to
send a text message to JR to prevent him from murdering her mother. She tells Janet they have to stop him. Janet tells Babe no. She thinks it’s only fair. She lost her precious daughter. Babe then tells Janet, in desperation, that
she will be her daughter. When Krystal
finds out that JR will not cooperate, she tells him he deserves to lose Babe
and little A. These stunts and empty
threats will haunt him for the rest of his life, she tells him. He then tells her that it does not matter because
he doesn’t know where his son is or when or if he will ever see him again.
