Evangeline arrives at the police station; John fills her in that
Cristian just confessed to killing Tico and also tried to kill Antonio. Natalie
doesn't want to believe it. Jess doesn't understand why she saw Antonio kill
Tico. She thinks Cris is lying to protect Antonio. Cris is quiet as Natalie
pleads with him. Cris says again that he killed Tico and he is not covering for
Antonio. John questions Cris, who says that he was told by some people to kill
both Tico and Antonio. Cris relates the details of Tico's death. Antonio keeps
trying to get Cris to shut up, but he insists on speaking. Cris wants to tell
everyone the whole truth. He says that the story is hard to believe. John asks
him to sit down and tell the story anyway, so he does. Cris doesn't know who was
on the ship, but he says that they got inside his head somehow and told him what
to do. Natalie realizes he was brainwashed. Cris shares that used drugs,
starvation, and sleep-deprivation on him while they kept repeating the same
information over and over. He wrote the info in the book (which he burned). They
told him to kill two people, one who was hated and one who was loved. He thought
they were going to make him hurt Natalie, but it was Antonio. He doesn't know
why they wanted Antonio to die, but "it's time" kept playing again and again in
his head, and he couldn't stop it. He says he didn't want to kill Tico, buy the
gun, etc. but he had no choice. It was like he was watching someone else do it.
Natalie points out that he threw the gun away. Cris admits that Nat was the only
one who could get through to him, but it didn't stop him from coming down there
and grabbing the guard's gun. When she wasn't around, the voices in his head got
stronger until he couldn't shut them out anymore. John asks if he has any idea
who the people are who trained him, but Cris doesn't. John and Antonio chat
about who could have set all this up. Natalie tells Cris that he couldn't kill
Antonio because he's his brother. Cris says that Antonio's not his brother in
any way. Natalie doesn't want to hear it and yells at him. Criss tells her to
stop it. He gets up and says he is not the man she thinks he is. John wants to
know who he is, then. Nat says they all love him and will be there for him, no
matter what he does. Cris talks about how much she believe in him, even though
it was a lie. He says he has been lying to everyone since he came to town and
that he loved her the minute he saw her. He says he's not Cristian Vega and
never was; he's an imposter.
Roxy buys drinks at Rodi's because she has been making lots of money with the hotel. She says hi to Michael, whi has been there with his friends celebrating that he's going back to work. She calls him "Doctor Death" but then quickly apologizes, but he doesn't mind because he's so happy. She is relieved that he is no killer but not surprised. She wonders if Marcie is coming because she knows she was worried about him. Michael's face falls and he says that Marcie couldn't make it. An attractive woman walks by and tells Michael that he's holding up the party. He tells Roxy that he wanted to run over to Marcie and just kiss her, but he couldn't because he was unsure. She tells him that he should have kissed her. Michael tells Roxy all about Hayes and Marcie's book. She thinks it's all crazy and that Hayes is a creep. She points out that Marcie cares about him and asks him what he's going to do about it. The attractive woman grabs MIchael's arm and steers him over to the table where the party is going on.

She insists that he dance with her, at least. He tries to get out of it, but then he reluctantly agrees. They dance as Roxy watches, worrying.
Marcie is still spacing out when her agent talks to her about her career. All she can think about is Michael. Hayes tries to tell her to forget about Michael and concentrate on her future. Marcie argues with Hayes about her stylist, but then the stylist Willie West walks in and starts talking about how he's going to work on Marcie. She is a little cranky. They still down together. Willie shows some sketches of ways that Marcie could look more exotic. He says there's nothing wrong with her being zaftig (meaning fat), it's just a matter of drawing attention away from the trouble spots. Marcie is feeling insulted and wants to leave. Hayes tries to talk her out of it. Marcie doesn't want to have a fake image, she just wants people to read her book. She stalks off, but Hayes stops her. They keep arguing. Marcie leaves to go spend the evening with Michael. Willie tells Hayes off. The girl kisses MIchael just as Marcie walks in. He runs after her.

Duke asks him what he will do if he loses and has to give up Ace. Kevin thinks this is his second chance to make up for the mistakes he made with Duke.
