The Voice of the Night, Al, thinks about all of the stars in the sky, even the ones we still believe in that we cant see. He pre-records his show for two hours and then takes off. The Voice continues and advises that the listeners make every second count because they have less time in their lives than the stars do.
Cristian and Natalie discuss Dorian, and Cristian fills her in on some of the history. She offers that marriage should be forever and only if you love someone. Marcie asks Cristian to find out who the Voice of the Night is since hes headed near the studio but Cristian doesnt appear interested in the quest as he has other things on his mind. Natalie asks her sister how their mothers doing and Cristian suddenly takes off. Natalie then asks Jessica how it is staying at Asas and she tells Natalie shes going to move into a dorm and their mothers going to get their own place.
Dorian hides from her husband so she can thumb through some files of Victors assets. Joey goes to see her and she observes that hes a priest-to-be. She says shes not surprised because she knows how good he is. He says he thought he saw the same in her but the Dorian he knows wouldnt marry Mitch. She assures him it has nothing to do with Viki and he asks what they want from each other. She says if she wanted to contest the will all of this would have been hers. He becomes frustrated and leaves. Cassie informs Blair that shes leaving Llanview again. Blair tries to explain to her the reason Dorian is doing all of this but Cassie thinks her mother is only out for herself. Cassie assures her cousin that if its true, then Dorians crazy, because if Mitch ever found out then hed kill her.
Cassie refuses to stick around and watch her mother self-destruct. Dorian assures Cassie hes doing it for her but Cassie thinks its because of the money. She asks her mother to prove that she loves her like she says she does, by getting Mitch out of their lives, tonight. Dorian is silent and Cassie heads out and back to Blairs children, after warning her cousin to be careful trusting Dorian. After Cassie goes, Dorian reminds Blair that Cassie isnt as strong as they are. Dorian then asks Blair if shes with her because she needs her to pretend she hates Dorian as much as Cassie does for marrying Mitch. She agrees and Dorian heads home to her husband, but first Blair asks what Dorians going to do when she has to sleep with him and she replies that shell jump off that bridge when she comes to it.
