Adam gets on the phone and confronts Liza about Colby. He tells his ex-wife, while Krystal overhears, that she better not fight him on letting Colby live with him. He reminds her that he owns this town and he will take her to court and the star witness will be her own daughter. From outside the door, Colby eavesdrops.
Jeff goes to talk to Erica at her office.
Josh arrives at the
Inside, Ryan plays with the toys.
Jeff informs Erica that Greg has been killed. He was buried in the ground and suffocated right at the park where everybody goes. Hearing that, she is very surprised that she woke up on the bench right near there. She tells Jeff that while she might not believe that even Greg deserves to die such a hideous death, everyone in town is better off now that he is gone. Hearing that, Jeff tells her he does not believe that she feels that way. She would have to be really happy that Greg is dead and that he suffered the way he did.
Josh tells JR that he believes that he murdered Greg. He tried to kill his own wife and almost killed Kendall but Babe set him free. He knows that JR is capable of doing what was done to Greg. JR tells Josh he wants him to get out.
Adam talks to Liza on the phone and tells her that he can take care of a teenage girl just fine without her help. He then hangs up and tells Krystal that it’s not too early for a toast. His daughter is back with him where she belongs. Krystal then tells her husband that she realizes he has a “ding” with Liza but he must consider that maybe this whole thing is not entirely her fault. He tells her he knows it is. If it were not, he would not have spent the night in a jail cell with his runaway teenage daughter. Liza is unfit to parent her. She reminds Adam that she can see that Colby does not look abused, malnourished or harmed. She suggests that maybe Liza was simply strict with Colby in order to keep her in check. He tells her that Liza has not known how to parent Colby if she’s out stealing cars. Krystal tells him that it’s entirely possible that Colby is playing both sides of this. He must realize that she is his child.
JR demands that Josh stop his accusations of him and get out of his house. Josh does not leave. Colby rushes out and hugs Josh. She reveals that he is her “doctor hero.”
Dixie responds to Zach that the two of them might be indirectly responsible for what happened to Greg but he counters that they merely “pushed” him to give them the information about Kate, and not that they buried him in the ground.
Colby tells Josh she wants him to come into the living room so she can talk to him. When she sees Babe, she hugs her and tells her it’s so good to see her again. JR tells her that Josh is just leaving but she tells him that Josh cannot leave. He saved her when she ran into this bloody hand coming out of the ground. She tells the entire story and goes into all the gory details and then talks about how she ran into Josh and freaked and he helped her. JR and Babe tell her she must stop. This is not the time to go into all of this. Babe then tells Colby that she can’t go into all of this, now, because the body that they found in the ground was Josh’s father. Hearing that, Colby is shocked and says it’s amazing that the odds would be for that to be the case. Josh then goes out the door but tells JR he’s going to prove that he did it and make him pay. Hearing that, Colby asks JR if it’s true that he killed that guy.
Erica tells Jeff that Josh is going to be better off without Greg Madden. He tells her that this poor kid will be emotionally scarred for life believing that both of his parents are dead after what he’s already lived with believing that Greg was his biological father. She tells him that this will give Josh a chance to make a fresh start and have a better life without Greg. She asks what he suggests they do now. She asks if they should go up to him and reveal to him that they are sorry that his father is not really has father. He tells her that now that Josh is emotionally damaged, he needs them both. She tells him if there is any time when it is not the right time to tell Josh the truth, it’s now.
Josh goes to the scene of the crime and looks very upset as he stands by where his father was buried.
Krystal asks Adam if he really wants Colby to think that she can get him to bail her out of any type of trouble that she gets herself into whenever she manipulates him. If she thinks that she can get away with anything because he will let her, it won’t do any good. He tells her that he knows how to administer discipline and let Colby experience the consequences of her actions. She asks him how well he managed to do that very thing while raising JR.
Colby stands outside the room to eavesdrop on JR when he tells Babe he’s afraid that they will never find his sister, Kate, again, now that Greg is done. Babe tells him that she is right there and he mustn’t shut her out.
Inside, Zach asks
Outside, Ryan tells
After finding out what happened to Greg, Babe wonders who might have done something like that and how much they would have had to hate him in order to do what they did. Hearing that, JR indicates that he is not surprised and might have a secret.
Adam tells Krystal that by keeping Colby out of jail, he knows the desperation that she had to live with. She was without her father for years. She had no money, no opportunity to go anywhere or do anything or even carry a cell phone and she had no choice except to steal cars. Krystal tells Adam again, that he’s over dramatizing how terrible Colby’s life has been and suggests that maybe Colby is just getting her kicks from stealing cars.
Erica tells Jeff that her first concern is her family. He asks her what would be wrong with Josh finding out the truth and what it would mean if he heard it from somebody else. He then informs her that whoever killed Greg installed a device in order to talk to him. They obviously wanted to break him and get him to tell his secrets. He asks her what if there is somebody out there who knows the truth about Josh and who will tell him. She tells him that that is highly unlikely but he asks her what will happen if Josh finds out that he is their son and knows that they were not going to tell him.
Adam asks Krystal if she is unhappy that Colby is there. She tells him of course not. They have more rooms in this house than they can count. She’s ok with her living there but he must realize that Colby is a fifteen year old. He must remember what it was like to be her age. It’s obvious that she is not an innocent teenager. She is a player. He then tells her that her cautions will not go unheeded. She has his permission to smack him over the head if she notices that he is allowing himself to be manipulated.
Erica tells Jeff that there’s no point in telling Josh that he is their son. She says she believes that whoever did this has no clue about this. Jack walks in and tells them he will leave if he is interrupting anything. Erica tells him to come in. He is her husband and he can be part of this conversation. She tells Jack that she and Jeff have found out that Greg Madden was killed. Jeff leaves Erica and Jack alone. She tells Jack that this whole thing has been a nightmare. He tells her that he has some thing to say on that subject.
Adam approaches Colby and tells her that maybe now is the time to have a talk about how she got there and the consequences of her actions. She’s totally casual and reminds him that Krystal went to the big house. She also reminds her father that if there is anybody he really needs to have a chat with, it’s JR. He is the one who attempted to commit murder.
Josh goes to the police station and tells the cops that they must arrest JR Chandler.
Babe finds JR at the crime site and asks him why he is there. He tells her he just had to see it for himself. She asks him if this is why he and Jamie went out the other night. She asks him if he killed Greg Madden.
In Erica’s office, Jack asks Erica if she had Greg Madden killed.
