Starr sits with her feet in the pool at Dorian’s house with baby Hope on her lap.  Langston is sitting on a lounge chair selecting classes for the fall semester.  She tells Starr that she is trying to schedule classes so that they will have free periods together.  Starr tells her that is unnecessary because she is not returning to school.

Cole is in Rachel’s office at the drug rehab center when Sergei arrives and asks Cole why he is there since he works for Sergei now.

In the courtroom, Elijah asks Matthew why he thinks he has the maturity to make a decision of this magnitude.  He asks if it was not his own bad judgment that put him in the chair in the first place. Téa objects on the basis that Elijah is basing his line of questioning on assuming facts that is not in evidence.  Elijah says Matthew’s judgment is at the very center of the case.  The judge allows Elijah to establish a foundation.  Elijah asks Matthew about the night of the accident.  He asks how he was thrown from the car if he was wearing his seatbelt.

Jessica goes to see Brody at Rodi’s.  He asks where she has been, and she tells him she talked to Dr Levin. She tells him that she has to face that she has a problem. He tells her she is not losing it.  She protests that she is either seeing her dead husband or hallucinating him.  Brody tells her it is real.

At Nora and Clint’s house, Clint tells Natalie and Jared that Nora is in court and he wants to get over there.  Natalie tells him that this can’t wait.  Jared shows Clint the DVD that he received yesterday and tells Clint it is Nash’s death.

Meanwhile Nigel opens the door to David Vickers and his film crew.  David tells him that the prodigal Buchanan son is back to stay.

Clint views the DVD and wonders how someone got their hands on such pictures.  He asks Jared if someone mailed it to him.  Jared replies that it was hand-delivered.  The name on the logbook was unintelligible.  He tried to chase the person but he was gone.  He tells Clint that they went over the security tapes and found one picture, but no one could identify him.  He shows Clint the picture, and tells him that the person did not have clearance to be in the building.  Clint asks if Jessie knows about it, because it could destroy her.

At Rodi’s Jessica asks Brody how he knows it is not all in her head.  He tells her that he fogged up the window that told him she saw the heart drawn on, and found the outline was still there.  He tells her she is not imagining it, a real person is stalking her.

Cole tells Sergei that he works for him, but that does not mean he must explain every minute of his life.  Sergei says it was just a friendly question. Cole asks how they can be friends if he  doesn’t even know his name.  Sergei tells Cole his name, and tells Cole to tell him why he is hanging out with the authorities.  Cole tells Sergei that he wants to stay clean.  He says his mom has a cop boyfriend and they expect him to stay clean and go to college.  Cole asks Sergei why he is there.  Sergei tells him that he has great interest in his life and recovery.  He tells him that rehab is the competition.  When Cole tells Sergei that there will be plenty of other customers, Sergei says that some of them are here at the rehab center.  Cole tells him maybe, but if he gives Sergei all of his customers, Sergei would not need Cole.  Sergei clarifies to Cole that they do not need him and that Cole should never forget that.  Cole asks Sergei why he is following him.  Sergei asks Cole why he cares if he has nothing to hide.

Langston tells Starr she can’t drop out of school.  Starr asks Lang if she is supposed to take notes while someone else takes care of her baby.  Langston emphatically tells her yes.  Starr says she has already missed so much of Hope’s life.  Langston concludes that Starr wants to miss the rest of her own life instead.   Starr tells Langston that she cannot imagine leaving Hope all day.  Langston asks if Starr can imagine herself being a dropout teenage mother.  Starr tells Langston that she make it sound terrible.  Langston asks Starr if she wants to be independent and take care of herself, or if she wants to depend on handout from her family.  Langston asks Starr if she wants to set a good example for her daughter.  Starr says she wants to take responsibility for Hope.  She asks Langston how she can do that and go back to school.

At Nora’s house, Nigel asks David if he has an appointment.  David introduces Nigel to the camera as the loyal retainer to the Buchanans for generations.  Nigel attempts to close the door.  David pushes the door open as he says, “Dude!”  Nigel says he is not, “by any known latitude of the word, a dude.”  Ford, the producer thinks that line was genius and tells his assistant to write it down.  While the camera is capturing the encounter, David says to Nigel “It is I, David Buchanan.  You can no longer keep me from my birthright.”  He turns t the camera and says Nigel prevented him from knowing that he was a Buchanan.  Nigel says he was correct; David is not Asa Buchanan’s son.  David concedes to the truth of that statement, continuing that he is the product of Bo Buchanan’s last stateside roll in the hay before going to war.  Nigel tells David that he must leave.  David says he has come back to his ancestral home, as en enters the house. 

In the courtroom, Elijah asks Matthew if he seatbelt was defective or if it broke in the crash.  Matthew answers no.  He asks if his parents taught him to buckle up and if he knows it is the law.  Matthew answers yes.  Elijah asks again how Matthew was thrown from the car.  Matthew answers that he was not wearing his seatbelt.  Téa stands up and says to the judge that Elijah is harassing Matthew.  Matthew is not responsible for the accident that paralyzed him.  Elijah reiterates to the judge that it addresses Matthew’s judgment and maturity.  The judge says she will allow it. Elijah asks Matthew why he wasn’t wearing his seatbelt.  Matthew says he wasn’t thinking.  He explains that he was the butt of a joke at the school dance and he had to get out of there.  Elijah concludes that Matthew ran out of the dance and jumped into the first car that he saw, and just didn’t buckle his seatbelt.  Matthew protests that it didn’t happen like that.  Elijah asks Matthew if he would call that sound judgment, if he would say it was a mature decision.  Destiny stands up and says Matthew was not the one who made the big mistake, his parents did.

At Rodi’s, Jessica tells Brody that she knows herself and her selves; she could have drawn the heart on the window.  Brody tells her that he has not noticed anything off about her.  He asks her if she has had any signs.  She says no, she hasn’t been losing time and she has been dealing with Chloe’s death.  She has been handling everything until now.  Brody asks her if she thinks she has been doing this to herself.  She says no, she doesn’t think so, but that is why the heart of the window freaked her out so much.  It was her thing with Nash; he drew the heart on her hand to say he loved her.  It was the last thing he did before he died.  She says that no one knew about the heart except for Nash, so he is the only one who would know to draw a heart on the window.

Nigel tells Ford that he must insist.  David tells Nigel to relax; this will be fun.  Nigel asks who these people are, and David says they are his three-man crew: Ford, Priscilla, and Markko.  Ford and Priscilla hand Nigel their business cards; Markko tells Nigel he doesn’t have cards yet.  David says they are bringing new jobs into the community.  Nigel asks why. David tells him it is a reality television show.  Nigel says he would die before he would allow David to make a mockery of the family. 

Ford takes David aside and tells him this is not working; David promised crazy rich people.  David reminds him that crazy rich people have surrounded them since they arrived in town.  Ford tells him that does them no good if they can’t film them.  David tells Ford that this is his family; they are good here.  Ford asks why they didn’t come here first.  David says he owed Dorian a shot at fame, and Viki and Jessica would have been seven characters.  Ford asks if this family is boring.  David asks if ford saw the moat.  He tells Ford that his father is the police commissioner, his uncle is a genuine cowboy, his grandmother is an ex-madam at a brothel, and his little brother is the Tiny Tim of Llanview High.  He tells Ford that they have expensive locations, a laundry list of characters, and if Ford insists, David will reluctantly take off his shirt.  Ford tells David that his family seems to hate him.  David says of course they do, but this is his family; they can’t kick him out.  David and Ford go back inside and David asks Nigel who is home.  Nigel tells David that he will not pass.  David tells Nigel that if he does not move, David will make him move.  Nigel stands his ground.  Priscilla tickles Nigel to get him to move aside. 

In the other room, Clint asks Jared if he thinks the DVD is someone’s idea of a sick joke, or if it is a threat that will lead to blackmail. Natalie says that everyone knows Nash’s death was an accident.  Clint asks if anyone is out to get back at Natalie for it.  David and his crew burst into the room.  David greets “Uncle Clint.”  Clint asks David what he is doing there, calling him Vickers.  David corrects him that it is Buchanan now.  Clint asks how he got in.  Priscilla is still tickling Nigel.  Nigel tells Clint that he tried to stop them.  He says they are making reality TV programming.  Clint tells Vickers that he does not have time for whatever he is doing so he and his little friends need to get out.  He tells Nigel that he needs to have a word with him.  Clint and Nigel leave the room.

David introduces “Cousin Natalie,” former trailer trash and pool hall hustler, now the dainty flower of the Buchanan house. He tells the camera that like Natalie he came to the Buchanan family picnic late.  Jared pushes between David and Natalie and tells David to keep his hands off her, calling him a freak.  David says to the camera, “Speaking of freaks,” these two were having sex while he was pretending to be her uncle.  Natalie protests that Jared never touched her while he was doing that.  David introduces Jared Banks, saying he came to town posing as the Buchanan heir.  David tells about the time when David almost foiled Jared’s plan and Jared tied David up, half-naked, in the barn with the horses. Jared says he will do worse if David doesn’t leave his family alone.  David tells him that they certainly know that Jared is capable of violence.  He turns to the camera and says Jared pushed Natalie’s sister’s husband through a skylight and caused his death.

At Rodi’s, Brody tells Jessica that he saw her draw a heart on her baby’s casket, so maybe it wasn’t as secret as she thinks it is.  Maybe someone else had noticed her and Nash using it before. He tells her that he tried to get a fingerprint, but it was too smeared.  He assures her that there was a fingerprint; a human hand drew the heart.  He concludes that someone real is messing with her.  She tells him she has to go drop off Bree’s paperwork at the preschool.  He tells her to be careful, and if she thinks someone is following her to call him immediately.  She agrees, kisses him, and leaves.

Clint and Nigel reenter the room.  Clint tells Markko to turn off the camera.  He tells David that he knows that Nash’s death was an accident.  David says that is Clint's story.  He asks if it is true or if it is a mystery, a secret treachery that he will expose.  Natalie asks David if he sent the DVD with pictures of Nash’s death.  David asks if it was footage or stills.  She tells him it arrived the same day that he did.  Clint tells David he hopes he is not trying to make money off Nash’s death.  David excitedly says vengeance from beyond the grave, jackpot!  He concludes to Ford that they will kick ratings butt with it.  Jared pushes David.  Clint punches David.  David falls to the floor.  David says to the camera, “That’s how we roll; we’re the Real Buchanans of Llantano County.”

Jessica knocks on Madame Delfina’s door.  Delfina says, “Come in, Jessica” without seeing who is at the door.  Jessica enters and asks Delfina how she knew who it was.  Delfina asks if she read the door.  The sign says “Psychic Engineer.”  Jessica asks if Delfina knows who she is.  Delfina tells her she met Tess last summer and surmises that she is not around anymore.  Nor is the prissy one with glasses.  Jessica asks how she knows about Bess.  Delfina tells her that maybe they should start at the door again; that might save some questions.   Jessica tells her ok, she knows things.  Delfina tells her yes, that is why people pay her.  She tells Jessica that she knows she thinks Delfina is a fraud.  Jessica tells her that her grandmother Renee Buchanan believes in her and said Delfina helped her reach her grandfather.  Delfina says it wasn’t much of a conversation because Asa was making mischief that night; making the lights go out, and mixing up the couples’ names on the banner.  Delfina tells Jessica that is not why she is here; it is about the other presence that was there that night.

At Nora’s house, Nigel asks Clint if he should call the police.  Clint says he will handle it.  Jared asks Clint if he needs help.  Clint says no, this may be the only thing he enjoys today.  He tells Jared and Natalie to find Jessica and warn her about the DVD.  As she is leaving, Natalie tells Markko to be careful and stay out of the crossfire.

At Dorian’s pool, Langston tells Starr that she has already picked out her classes; all Starr has to do is sign.  Starr asks Langston if she heard what Starr said.  Langston says she heard her; she is ignoring it.  Starr asks Langston if she thinks someone else should take care of her kid.  Langston reminds Starr that she lives in a house filled with people who are lining up to change Hope’s diapers.  She says she will bunch all of their classes together so that Starr will only be in school five hours.  Starr protests that it will be hard to study.  Langston tells her she will help her.  Langston asks her what she wants.  Does she really want to drop out?  Starr says she doesn’t know what she wants to do. She just wants to see Cole.  Langston tells her that Cole just needs to pass the GED exam and he will get his diploma.  Then they can all go to college together next year.  Langston asks Starr if she is worried about Cole.  She asks if he is doing something dangerous.

In Rachel’s office, Sergei asks Cole what this GED is.  Cole explains that it is an exam he must pass before he can go to college.  Sergei asks if Cole why he is going to school with the money he is making now.  Cole says he can make more money in college.  Sergei tells Cole that the university is already covered.  Cole asks if he has someone selling to the freshmen.  Sergei tells him that could be useful.  Cole says it will be a gold mine.  He tells Sergei he needs the money.  Sergei tells him yes, for his baby.  Cole is the perfect guy.  Cole tells him is not so perfect.  He put a kid in a wheelchair.

In the courtroom, Destiny tells the judge that Becca and Justin put Matthew in that wheelchair.  She says they did the meanest thing she has ever seen and they never paid one minute for it.  The judge tells Destiny that she has been warned.  Téa tells Destiny to sit down; this isn’t helping.  Destiny sits.  Elijah concludes to Matthew that he was upset about Becca and Justin so he forgot to buckle up.  Matthew says yes.   Elijah asks if Matthew knew that Cole was using drugs and neglected to share that fact with his parents.  Elijah says that when grownups see that their friends have a drug problem they get help for them.  He asks Matthew if he knew that Cole was high that night.  He asks if Cole said or did anything that may have given him a clue.  Matthew testifies that Cole told him to get out of the car.  Elijah asks why he stayed in the car.  Matthew said he had to get out of there.  Elijah says he would have done anything to get out of that dance, just like he will do anything to get out of that chair now.  Matthew concedes that he made a mistake, but everyone makes mistakes.  He says Elijah can ask his parents, he bets they have done something they regret.  Elijah tells Matthew that they are only discussing his judgment.  He had several opportunities to stop the chain of events that led to his injury, but he chose not to.

At Nora and Clint’s house, David tells Clint he is not leaving until his daddy comes home.  Clint tells David that Bo does not want to see him.  David speaks to the camera and says the abuse continues, his father abandoned him at birth.  Clint says Bo didn’t know he existed, and now wishes he didn’t.  David says he is not leaving until his father comes home and faces him.  Clint tells David that Bo does not live there anymore.  David says Bo will come there to see Nora because they always make excuses to see each other.  Clint tells David that he and Nora are married now.  David tells the camera that Clint stole the love of his father’s life.

In court, Téa asks Matthew how his impulsive decisions on the night of the accident have changed him.  He tells her that he doesn’t do anything without thinking it through.  She asks him if he has considered the decision about whether to get the surgery.  He tells her he researched it online, he talked to Dr Evans about it, he read what other doctors said about Dr Evans, and he read patient reviews from people who had the same surgery.  The judge adjourns court until tomorrow.

Natalie and Jared go to Rodi’s looking for Jessica.  He tells them she was there but left to go to Bree’s preschool.  Natalie tells him that they need to tell her something that is not a phone thing.  She asks him to tell her that they need to see her.  Brody asks them if they have noticed anything strange around Llanfair lately.  He thinks someone could be stalking Jessica.

Jessica asks Madame Delfina if she knows who the presence at Asa’s lodge was.  Jessica tells her that she saw Nash that night, and has seen him since then and he has left signs for her.  Jessica tells Delfina that this is crazy, she doesn’t believe in ghosts.  Delfina offers to call Nash with a séance.

 At Rodi’s, Jared tells Brody that there was something.  Natalie says that that’s why they wanted to see Jessica.  They wanted to warn her.  Brody asks if they think someone is after Jessica.  Natalie says that they don’t know, but someone is definitely messing with their heads about Nash’s death.

In Rachel’s office, Cole tells Sergei that he wants more territory.  He asks if Sergei if he has talked to his boss about it yet.  Sergei says Cole goes nowhere else until the boss meets him.  Sergei tells Cole that he will see what he can do about Cole selling to freshmen at LU.  He tells Cole he is so motivated.  He pretends he has so much to protect, his mother, Starr, and his little baby girl.  Sergei leaves Rachel’s office.  His cell phone rings while he is in the hallway.  Cole overhears him confirming that a shipment is tonight. 

 Starr confirms to Langston that she is worried about Cole, but Langston is better off not knowing about it.  Langston asks if that is why she thinks she can’t finish school.  Starr doesn’t want to talk about it.  She asks Langston if Markko’s parents have come around yet.  Langston tells her no, but he got a job with a camera crew.

 David speaks to the camera, saying it is brother against brother for the love of one woman.  The same woman once married a gay serial killer.  The same woman cheated on his father so she could get pregnant.  Yet through it all, she never stopped loving his dad.  Clint interjects that that marriage was over years ago, and Bo was his best man.  David asks how long before their love flowers again.  Clint grabs David by the neck.  Ford tells Clint that that was great, and they need him to sign the release form.  Clint says he is not signing anything.  Ford tells David they are out of here.  David tells him things are just getting good.  Clint changes his mind and signs the release form.  He tells the crew to stay right where they are because he wants to get everything on tape as he kills David.  Clint leaves the room.  David tells Ford he has to let him take his shirt off now!  Markko asks David if he missed the part about Clint killing him.  David tells Markko to relax, that’s just the way Clint talks.  Ford tells David that he hit a nerve about Clint’s wife. 

 In the courtroom, Bo tells Elijah that he thought they had an understanding.  Nora tells Elijah he cannot tear Matthew to pieces like that.  Elijah asks if she would rather see Matthew uncomfortable on a witness stand or in a coffin.  Bo tells Elijah not to speak to Nora that way.  Nora says she wants her son whole, but she wants him happy too.  Elijah tells them it’s too bad Matthew doesn’t feel the same way about them as he reminds them that Matthew mentioned their big lapse in judgment, so clearly he had Téa are not above playing dirty.

 In the hallway, Téa tells Matthew that he did great, and that the judge will definitely see the difference between that night and now.  Destiny asks Téa if Matthew is definitely getting the surgery.  Téa says she has every reason to hope.  Matthew thanks both of them.  Bo and Nora come out of the courtroom.  Nora asks Matthew if he is ready to go.  He says he will meet them at the car.  Destiny wonders about Matthew and hid parents fighting in the courtroom and then going home together in the same car.  Matthew says he is glad that they live in a big house. 

 Langston and Markko are talking about his new job on their cell phones.  Priscilla screams.  Clint enters the room with a shotgun.  Markko tells Langston he has to go; Clint Buchanan has a gun. Clint aims the rifle at David Vickers.  Ford tells Clint to go ahead and shoot, but be sure to miss the vital organs.

 Cole calls Starr on his cell phone.  She tells him how cute Hope is in her little swimsuit.  He tells her to take a picture.  She tells him she is signing up for classes because Langston  convinced her that she can go to school and still have time with the baby.  They agree that they will have a great year. 

 Sergei is talking on his cell phone telling his boss that Cole can sell to the freshmen at the university.  He tells him that Cole is eager, and so far, he checks out, but something makes Sergei uncomfortable about him.

In the courtroom, Téa is going through her briefcase when Elijah comes up behind her and tells her Matthew was rolling close to the edge.  He says if he even hints that Bo and Nora are hiding something he will use the information in the paper he gave Téa.  Téa tears up the paper and tells Elijah that it means nothing.  Téa leaves.

Outside Nora’s house, Bo tells Matthew that if he plans to use the information about Bo and Nora kissing, he would like to have the opportunity to tell Clint first.  Bo says he understands that Matthew is angry with Bo and Nora, but Clint doesn’t deserve to be blindsided.  They enter the house and are surprised to see Markko.  They observe Markko filming Clint holding the rifle on David and telling him he has to leave, but not before he hands over the film.  David is backing away from Clint and bumps into Bo.  He says, “Dad, thank God you’re here” as he puts his arm around Bo’s shoulder and faces the camera.

Jared shows Brody the picture of the person that delivered the DVD.  Natalie asks Brody if he recognizes him.  Brody asks if it could be Nash.

At Delfina’s, she and Jessica are holding a séance calling Nash.  Delfina asks Nash if he will show himself to her.  She tells him his wife is there and needs him, and she thinks he might need her.  The patio doors fly open.  Jessica asks Nash if he is there.
