Rosanna shows up at Java Underground to set some rules with Dusty regarding his business with Craig. Rosanna reminds Dusty of his past shady business dealings and asks him to be 100% honest in his dealings with Craig. Rosanna says that since she and Craig plan to adopt a child, she does not want anything to get in the way (since Craigs background will be investigated). Dusty says she has nothing to worry about. Rosanna tells Dusty that if he goes back on his word, she will ruin him. Dusty asks Rosanna if Paul asked her to threaten him. Rosanna insists no one urged her to come here this day, but she asks Dusty to stop bothering Paul Ryan. Dusty tells Rosanna that Craig got very jealous when he caught her hugging Paul at the Lakeview the other day. Rosanna is surprised. Jennifer arrives and is introduced to Rosanna. Before Rosanna leaves she asks Dusty if they understand each other. Dusty says yes. Watching Rosanna walk away, Dusty tells Jennifer that her brother has Rosanna Cabot in his corner. Jennifer tells Dusty how Rose came over to Pauls and invited him to her charity event. As Jennifer is hugging Dusty, Rose walks in.
Paul tells Jennifer how he went to Barbaras penthouse and argued with her, then Will demanded that Paul apologize to Barbara. Paul says he had no idea Will was so protective of his mother. Jennifer tells Paul that she will remind Will of how much Paul loves him. Rose arrives and gives Jennifer and Paul invitations to her charity event at the salon. Jennifer agrees to attend. Paul asks Rose if she wants him to be one of the bachelors auctioned off. Rose laughs and says that would be fun. Jennifer leaves and Rose thanks her for accepting the invitation. Paul asks Rose why she would think that he would attend the charity event. Rose tells Paul that she wants to start over as friends with him. Paul tells Rose she has a new friend now (Dusty). Rose asks Paul if the old guy she knew (pre-crash Paul) is dead? Paul says that his ex fiancé (Rose) and best friend murdered the old Paul. Rose mentions that Dusty is changing his ways and now owns Java Underground. Paul tells Rose that once again, she is allowing Dusty to make a fool out of her. Rose admits she made mistakes. Paul tells Rose that he is waiting for her to come to him and admit that he was right about Dusty. Rose gets disgusted and tells Paul that he is the saddest person she ever met. Rose leaves. Paul sits down and cries. Paul then sees James who tells him that he knows what he is going through since once, he was obsessed with his mother (Barbara). James tells Paul to stop punishing himself and start punishing others. Rosanna arrives and tells Paul that she and Craig plan to adopt. Rosanna tells Paul she must warn him about something.
