At Carlottas café, Evangeline is having her morning coffee when Dorian approaches her. They discuss Kellys mental and emotional state and the effect Kevins news about the court date had on her. Dorian tells Evangeline that she will make sure Kelly is ready and strong and stable for court, and that Vans job will be to make sure the judge knows what kind of a low-down, dirty, dishonest creep Kevin really is. Dorian then goes the counter and she and Carlotta discuss how Adriana is still not over River.
Adriana is crying, praying not to be pregnant and deciding that she must be and she has to tell River. She picks up the phone and calls River; she ends up speaking to Rev. Carpenter, finds that River isnt there, and declines to leave a message.
Sonia answers the door and lets Jessica in. Angelina is there and Jess explains that she is interviewing Sonia. The phone rings and Sonia ends up talking to John, who is insistent that she needs to come to the PD for a talk. Sonia tries to get Jessica to leave with her, but Jess wants to stay and interview Angelina. Sonia is not happy with that idea, and tells her no.
Adriana shows up at Ticos door, distraught, upset that River is off auditioning for Julliard and that if he is accepted, she doesnt know what shell do: I just cant do this all alone! Tico holds her and tries to comfort her.
At the Love Shack, Nick is still arguing that Mark the sissy- should not be dancing with the others. Someone says that a lot of people are interested in seeing this show, and the guys are a little upset that the word has been spread. Mark mentions that the music they are using isnt the best; Nick asks if he would rather use show tunes, and Mark points out that hip-hop music might work better and keep them from looking lame.

Sonia finally consents to leave Jessica alone with Angelina, who tells Jessica I am afraid, when all the questions have been answered, it will be too late. Jessica asks Angelina what she meant, and Angelina says that despite her occasional confusion, she also remembers certain things as well. Angelina tells her how Ticos mother was a woman with a great deal of respect for others. She says that Isabella was like a queen to Manuel, and how Manuel was so proud when Tico was born. Jessica asks if Manuel was into criminal activity at that time, and Angelina basically says yes. Jess then wants to know if Isabella knew about Manuels life, and she tells her that she did, but that she didnt like it. She had once told Manuel that she would give up everything in their lives if he would give up his criminal endeavors, but he refused. They eventually get around to talking about the day Isabella and Manuelito died in the car explosion meant for Manuel. Angelina says that any goodness left in Manuel died that day. She then asks about Dorian, wanting to know how she could have married who was as evil and violent as Manuel had become by the time he got together with her.
Dorian laments that she has been unable to spend the time with Adriana that she should, and Carlotta winds up blaming Dorian for letting Adriana run wild and be with River when it wasnt necessarily a good idea. They argue about that, and Carlotta finally apologizes for attacking Dorian. She says she is worried about having Manuel back in their lives.
Tico says he thought Adriana and River were through. She talks about Rivers talent and its obvious she still loves him. She decides she will just have to accept that River will be in New York, and Tico says its for the best, she can concentrate on her future. He wants to take her out for breakfast; she resists, but finally capitulates. She goes to wash her face and Tico calls someone named Juan, who has a friend with Julliard, asking the guy to ensure that River is accepted to the school; he tells the person on the phone that he has someone much more suitable in mind for his sister.
Dorian explains that she trusts Tico because hes her nephew and Dorian says thats silly, she surely doesnt trust Paul. Carlotta admits what she is really worried about is having Tico and Sonia here in Llanview; Dorian says she is worried about things, too, including Ticos relationship with Adriana. She points out that, family or not, Tico is a virtual stranger to them and they ought to be wary.
Angelina explains to Jessica that she had hid the truth about Manuel when he was young, and how happy they had been until Sonia came into the picture. Sonia could not accept that she was the daughter of a maid, and that she was rude and disrespectful to people. Angelina asks Jessica to help her get out of the house before Sonia returns.
Evangeline and John run into each other at the police station. He tells her she is researching for her case with Kelly and Kevin. Sonia shows up for her interview and he asks Van if shell be there when hes done. She says maybe. John and Sonia go into his office, and he asks her about the man who was an aide to Padilla who came after her at Capricorn the other evening. He offers her help: if she will work with him on the Santi thing, he will make sure she stays healthy. He wants information.
Marcie, still crying, runs into Michael in Angel Square. They rehash their argument of the previous day, and she says that while she is still mad at him, thats not why shes distraught. She has gotten another rejection letter from a literary agent.
Everyone is in Angel Square, Marcie lamenting that she cant call the manuscript back. Julie brings up that they need to resolve the issue with Shannon and they all leave so that Michael doesnt have to overhear their decision. Hudson wants Shannon excluded from the work site and everyone agrees. They want Shannon only to do housework and for the remainder of the project.

Angelina is at the diner, talking to Carlotta. She says she needs the truth.
Tico and Adrianna arrive at La Boulaie and run into Dorian in the foyer. They engage in small talk until Dorian sends Adrian upstairs to rest; Tico suggests that Adriana see a doctor and Dorian points out that she is one. Adriana puts them both off, saying she is recovering from a flu and is just in need of rest. She goes upstairs, and Tico asks if he has offended Dorian in some way. She denies it, then answers the phone. When she says Hello River, Tico takes the phone from her and tells River to stay away from Adriana. Dorian tells him that was very inappropriate and he agrees, saying he knows that Dorian wants to protect Adriana as much as he does. Dorian looks concerned.
John and Sonia are still in his office, discussing the kind of help he wants from her. She denies she has any knowledge she can offer him, and knows none of the people he is asking about.
