Clint and Viki are at Llanfair. He assures her that she's not to blame for what happened to Jessica/Tess, but she feels guilty anyway. Natalie comes in and says she plans to be more patient with Tess and to help out more around the place. She says she is going to the drugstore to get prenatal vitamins for Tess. Clint tells Viki about Claudia Reston's father showing up at Asa's place. He doesn't think he will stop until he gets revenge. Tess hears them talking and walks in, annoyed that nobody told her about Reston showing up. She questions Clint, ignoring Viki, so he explains what happened. Tess, angry, wants to leave to find Nash. Viki tries to get her to stay, but Tess yells at them for how everyone messes with her and keeps things from her. Clint offers to drive her, since she's too upset to drive, so they leave, with Clint reassuring Viki that he'll take care of their little girl. Viki watches the news on TV, which covers Hugh's press conference about what happened with Todd. She turns it off, sad about Todd.

At Asa's mansion, Nigel and Nash exchange apologies. Nash is sorry for bringing the Restons there and Nigel is sorry that they got past security. Nigel assures Nash that the Buchanans take care of their own. Nash reminds him that he is not really a Buchanan. Nigel points out to him that he wouldn't be there if they didn't believe in him. The door bell rings-- it's Natalie. She tells Nash that she knows he's a good guy and cares about Jessica/Tess, but she thinks he needs to leave town for her sister's sake. Nash assures her that he will never hurt Jessica or Tess, but Natalie gets annoyed with him. She tells him that she is scared that Tess will make Viki have another heart attack. He tells her that won't happen because Tess has mellowed. Nat counters that they're fighting all the time. When he brings up Niki Smith, she gets more annoyed. Natalie admits that Tess is a lot like her when she was younger and screwed up, but she tells Nash that Tess won't be around, she will be integrated with Jessica. Nash is not so sure. He says they don't know what will happen. He realizes that Nat thinks that Tess is sticking around just to be with him. She thinks that Tess will go away if he gives up on her. Nash reminds her that she said he is a good guy, but really she thinks he's evil. He gets angry and orders her out, opening the door. She asks him to leave town until after the baby is born so Jess can heal. She says that if he is father and Jess wants him back, he can come back. She thinks it's too dangerous right now for him to be there. He says that he hears her, but he is doing the best he can for woman he is in love with. Tess comes up, calls him names, and slaps him. She yells at him for keeping secrets from her. They go in the other room, leaving Clint and Nat alone. Clint wonders why she's there instead of the drugstore. Natalie tells him that she misses Jess and wants her back. He hugs her, consoling her.

Nash tells Tess that he just hasn't had a chance yet to tell her about Reston's visit, but she doesn't believe him. He confesses that he didn't want to upset her because she just came out of the hospital and Jessica almost came out. He admits that he should have told her about Claudia being at Rodi's, but he was trying to protect her. This is a huge surprise to Tess, who only knew about Claudia's father. Nash explains how Claudia followed him and waited for her to go to the bathroom to talk to him. Tess yells at him more for lying to her. She thinks she heard him tell Nat that he's leaving town. He assures her that's not true and that they are a team, but she's angry and won't listen. He points out that this is what Claudia wants, a wedge between them, but it doesn't help. Tess, still angry, leaves, with Clint following. Nash throws a glass angrily. Later, he gives money to Nigel for the glass and apologizes again. Nigel is sorry to see him go, but Nash thinks he should do the right thing. Nigel protests, but Nash thanks him, takes his bag and leaves the mansion.

Bo, frustrated, says that she's gotta stop putting herself down. He pledges to be there for her with her son and help her explain it all to him. However, Paige replies that her son can never know her because she's ruined enough lives. Bo points out that it's only her life that is coming apart right now, not her son's. He says that she and Matthew are his family and asks what it says about their life if she can't open to him about whatever it is that's doing this to her.
