Donna and Marley pleaded with Molly to try to work out a compromise concerning the twins. Molly agreed to, only after Kim assured her she'd be right outside if Molly needed her.
It didn't seem like the three would be able to agree to anything, until Roseanna, of all people, interrupted them and proposed a solution. She suggested that Molly, Donna and Marley try a joint custody arrangement for a six month trial period. All three were open to it, and Donna and Marley thanked Roseanna profusely for her help. Craig was watching, and once again, implied that Roseanna was trying to covet Carly's life.
Isaac accused Ian of not being the real Duke, and brought up the human skull that was sitting in the dungeon vault. Ian cursed him for what he called ‘desecrating a family plot'. Bonnie admitted that while the story was far-fetched, she wanted to hear something from Ian that disproved what Isaac said.
Ian scoffed at Isaac's accusations and ordered Isaac to leave. Isaac appeared to leave and Bonnie went back up to her room. But Isaac was hiding nearby, and overheard a conversation between Ian and his Uncle Garrick. They talked about moving Billy to another location, and that their financial ledgers were missing. But Ian wasn't worried about any of that. He just wanted Isaac gone.
Later, Bonnie returned to her room and found Isaac there. Before he could tell her what he overheard, they both heard Ian approaching. Bonnie grabbed the container with the ledgers, and joined Isaac in the closet. Ian came in and began searching for the ledgers. He noticed the closet door move, and called for Bonnie to reveal herself.
Bonnie came out with the ledgers. She told Ian she had been in the closet getting them. When he asked her why she had them, Bonnie admitted that Isaac had accused Ian of marrying her for her family money. Ian reminded her that he had more money than her family. Bonnie told him she had realized that.
Ian then tried to become intimate with Bonnie, but she put him off, because of Isaac's presence in her closet. When she finally got rid of Ian, Bonnie marched to the closet to get rid of Isaac, but he had mysteriously disappeared.
