She believes that the secret is tearing Colby apart and she urges Adam to do the right thing and tell the truth. Krystal walked upon Colby having her own happy hour on the pier.

Colby is mean to Petey who continues to touch her as if they are dating. He annoys her, so she tells him that nobody likes him. Dre, and Cassie concur. Colby tells him that they want nothing to do with him. She asks why is he there?

Krystal reminds Adam that he is breaking the law by aiding, and abetting the children and concealing their crime. By helping to conceal Colby’s crime Adam is making her just like him. Things will get worse not better according to Krystal. Adam is treating Colby the same way he treated his other children. They all have alcohol problems. Colby is drinking just as JR and Skye did before her. Krystal believes that booze is Colby’s water. Adam wants to know if Babe were in trouble with the law would Krystal turn her in. Krystal reminds him that lying does not help. Adam wants to know if everything wrong with Colby is his fault. He asks if he drives Colby to drink.

Angie wants the problem with Cassie to go away. Cassie is scared, and is not confiding in Angie. Jesse believes that Cassie has a reason to be scared. Security cameras show Dre, and Cassie at a convenience store near to where Richie was hit. The car Adam claims was stolen is shown outside of the store. They have been caught in a lie.

Sam admires the relationship that Erica currently has with Kendall. Erica and Kendall appear to understand and accept each other. They tell each other whatever is on their mind. Erica tells him that her relationship with Kendall was not always effortless. She suggests that he mend fences with Dre, his son. He’s trying and the last time they talked he thought that Dre would open up to him, but he later shut down after Sam received a phone call.
