At the police station, Bo returns from his trip to Texas with Matthew. He meets with Nora, Talia and Antonio. He tells Nora its odd that he has not heard back from Lindsay. She was supposed to be arraigned. He right away assumes that Nora is the reason why Lindsay is not able to make phone calls. He reminds her that she told him she promised not to contest Lindsays bail. Nora then informs Bo that Lindsay pleaded guilty and that Lindsay does not appear to be herself anymore.
Will Rappaport goes to St. Annes to visit his mom. But the attendants warn him that he needs to be prepared to see the state of mind that she is now in.
Michael gives Marcie a new necklace. He tells her that this is for good luck. She tells her husband that they will need all the luck they can get. Michael assures his wife that they must believe that there is not way that Todd will get custody of Tommy.
In high school math class, Starr and Cole are distracted having a private conversation about her dads recent wedding and his up and coming custody hearing. He tells her that its very obvious for anybody to see that her parents had a fake wedding. And he bets the judge will see that.
Todd obligates himself to stay overnight in the same house as Blair although in a different bedroom. When they wake up, meet and have their coffee in the kitchen, he remarks how uncomfortable he is in the room where he slept. He tells her that he cannot wait until the judge grants him custody and he can go back to the penthouse. But she informs him that she does not intend to let him go back to living in the penthouse.
The math teacher tells Starr and Cole that they are not paying attention to his lesson and asks if they would like to share their private conversation with the rest of the class. The bell rings and Starr and Cole meet with Langston and her boyfriend. They are all surprised to find out that Starrs parents remarried and are ready to go to war with Mrs. McBain and try to take her kid from her.
Marcie tells Michael that she is very worried that Blair will testify in Todds behalf and tell everybody how great a father he is. But Michael assures Marcie that nobody is going to believe that he is a good father nor believe that Blair really married him or believes it either.. Hes a rapist. He has had a pattern of doing terrible things. And there is evidence that wanted to kill Tommy before he was born. So what judge is going to give him custody? Right then, Judy comes to see them. Marcie offers her some orange juice. Judy asks Michael where Tommy is. Michael informs her that Tommy is with John. Judy tells Michael that hopefully he will be ok staying with his brother. And she warns them that the judge might rule right away, after Blair testifies for Todd. Michael tells Judy that he doubts anybody will buy that Blair has married Todd for real nor that he has any chance. But she tells them that its entirely possible that courts will see that they are at least attempting to be a real family and since Todd is the biological father, it could work in his favor. Marcie is really panicking. Judy assures her that she would not be willing to go to court unless she thought they had a good chance. But Marcie is very worried about the odds.
Todd reminds Blair that he paid her $5 million. And she must do what he wants. She has to agree to make it look real. And he does not have to do everything she wants after what he has paid her. But she asks him what he will do after hes won the case and no longer needs her or the kids. He asks her why she thinks he will do that. She tells him that in order for her to stick to her end of the bargain, he has to agree to move into her house again.
While Will waits for his mom and St. Annes, he runs into Addie Cramer. She notices that he looks familiar and asks if shes seen him before.
In Bos office, he asks Nora if Lindsay really described everything that happened and then she broke down. Nora tells Bo that she has prepared a transcript. But he tells her that he really thought that Lindsay was ok before the hearing. Nora informs Bo that Lindsay apparently knew for a long time that Todd was the biological father of Tommy. And she killed Spencer because he threatened to take him from Marcie and Michael.
Marcie is very upset and tells Judy that she doesnt even want to think about what will happen if the judge considers giving Todd custody. Judy tells her that they can always appeal of that happens. But Marcie hysterically tells her that she does not want to have to appeal. Right then, Michael informs Judy that Marcie got suspended form her teaching job because she got into a big screaming match with Starr over the situation in class. And Marcie may not want to go back to school and face Todds daughter. Marcie confirms that she can stay home with Tommy and be a housewife if need be. She just needs her son. Michael then informs Judy that Todd came by and offered to buy Tommy from them. Judy asks why they did not tell her that. Michael explains that Marcie went along with Todds offer and had him believing that she would sell Tommy to him.
Todd tells Blair of all the things he needs her to say in court. But it looks like she is not ready to cooperate as much as hed like. She sounds like she is not completely on board. He asks her if she believes that he is actually stealing Michael and Marcies kid. She tells him of course not. He asks her if she is merely complying because of the $5million. She tells him no. She knows that Tommy belongs with him and they are going to get him back today. Right then, Todd opens a letter from the kids where they tell him they love him, wish him luck in court and ask him not to come home without their brother.

Bo and Nora are wondering what the shrinks report might say about Lindsay.

In the courtroom, Todd informs the judge that he and the mother of his two older children have been engaged for a long time and got married last night. Marcie interjects that Todd manipulated Blair into marrying him and its all a crock. Todd tells the judge that he and Blair were ready to get married when Margaret Cochran kidnapped him and tried to kill him a few years ago. And that is the only reason he is not presently married to Blair. Marice tells the judge that Blair slept with Spencer Truman, Todd messed around on her and its very obvious neither of them wanted to re-marry ever again. The only reason they went through with it was to take Tommy from her and Michael. The judge first asks Marcie to shut up. But she tells him she has proof of Todds lack of integrity. She tells the judge that Todd went to her home and offered to buy Tommy. He asks if she can prove that. She tells him she sure can.

Starr asks Cole what business it is of his why her parents got married. He tells her that its his business since all they have been talking about recently is Tommy. He tells her that she must realize the likelihood that her father will lose the custody battle. She must realize that he made a complete ass of himself in court. And it will only hurt her if he gets her hopes up to get her little brother back as well as that he will remarry her mother. She tells Cole he knows nothing about her parents marriage. And she asks if he is merely jealous that her parents have a chance but his do not. He asks her what she is going to do if her parents do not come through with their marriage nor with getting her little brother back.
Antonio handles the drunken George while he inquires if Talia might know him.
Bo and Nora go to St. Annes to find out about Lindsays state. The doctor informs them that he just explained to Lindsays son that Ms. Rappoport has become completely non-responsive. Bo then informs him that he has known Lindsay for a long time. And maybe he can talk to her. Bo and Nora observe Will trying and failing to get his mother to talk to him. And Nora tells Bo if Lindsay is faking this, she hopes Lindsay realizes that she is breaking that poor kids heart.
Todd testifies in court that he wanted to express his gratitude to the McBains for taking such good care of his child. And he wanted to compensate them for the monetary expense of taking care of him as well as the pain they may be going through when they lose him. And he apologizes if he offended them or they took it the wrong way. Marcie stands up and says that that is a lie.
