When Starr comes to see her dad and knows he is in trouble and afraid of something and yelling for guards, he tells his daughter he does not want her around or put her in danger.

Jessica confides in Robert that she was there when Brody asked her dad for his blessing for Brody to marry Natalie and Clint did not give it to him. She admits that tested her but she knew she had to not let it get to her. He tells her he believes she had every right to go off the wall. She admits that sometimes she feels like hauling off and decking somebody. He tells her he wants to encourage her to take her best shot of decking someone and stands in his hotdog uniform as the target for her.
Natalie admits to Rex that she went to see John who offered her his blessing to marry Brody. But Rex can see that that is not what Natalie really wanted from John.

On the phone while with Irene in her living room, Blair informs Viki that she is invited to the reading of Victors will. Irene wants to join although Viki tells her she better not even think about it. Irene affirms that Victor is her son whether Viki likes it or not.
Blair tells Tea she knows that Victor had a will but assumes he changed it after he divorced Blair and married Tea. Tea admits that the last few years of their lives were not great. But Dani got to bond with her real father and one thing she knows is that Victor provided for all of his children. She realizes that they are waiting for Viki but questions if they have forgotten anyone. Blair says that perhaps the big question is just whom this house and all of Victors stuff officially belongs to. Tea tells Blair that there are legal arguments that could be made that Todd at least gets some of it. The doorbell rings and a panicked Viki tells Blair and tea she wants them to know that she did everything she could in order to prevent her from coming there. Hearing that, they ask Viki just whom she means by that. Irene appears and smirks.
Rex asks Viki what she just happened to overhear and eavesdrop upon in a conversation between John and Roxy. She tells him that Roxy told him she dared him to admit that he did not love her daughter and he admitted it. Rex asks if what she thought she overheard is the reason she said yes to Brody.
Jessica tells Brody she does not want to be violent because she knows that would not be a good example to Bree whom she is teaching not to promote violence. But he protests that what is far worse is that her fiancé she hoped to marry and believed loved her has cheated on her with her sister and is ready to marry her and have a baby together. At that point, Jessica is provoked enough to punch Robert.
Starr wonders why her father has freaked and has assumed his mother has threatened to kill them all and he wonders why she cannot see the hand written death threats.
Irene tells her sons completely non-responsive family that she has the right to be there whether they welcome her or not. The strange man tells them that he would like to get on with the reading of the will and they need to put their differences aside until hes done. He reads that somebody identifies himself as Thomas Todd Manning. Hearing that name, Viki, Tea, and Blair all know that Victor would not have identified himself that way and it could be the living will of original Todd instead of Victor. Out of nowhere, a dog runs into the room and the women are not happy to see that she has peed on the floor and on their legs. Behind the dog, Viki and Todds sister and Irenes daughter, Tina, appears unexpectedly wearing a black witch hat. She asks if she is “too late."
At Buenos Dias, Rex tells Natalie he knows she said yes to Brody but he does not see it in her eyes. She protests that she is happy. She and Brody are making a really good home for their son. But he tells her he knows that her heart is not in this and asks just what she would do if John were to come through the door and urge her not to come through with this. She tells her brother it does not matter. Its too late. She remarks that the previous night, she had a dream that she found out that John was Liams father and it wasnt a happy dream. But he tells her that maybe her dream meant something like that she is not over John. And he tells her that she cannot marry Brody if the only reason is obligation involving the baby.
When Jessica accidently decks and knocks Robert Ford over, hes unable to get up with the hotdog suit surrounding him. She laughs and tells him he needs to engage his core." She attempts to pull him up but falls over on top of him.
Inside Buenos Dias, Rex tells his sister he believes she deserves the best. But hes hardly one to give advice realizing that he is a guy who sees dead people. He admits that he and Gigi were so close and ready to have everything they ever wanted. Jack Manning took it all away.
When Tina walks in with her dog, Viki, Blair, Tea and all the others are not happy to see her an know that she is only there for the reading of the will in the hopes of getting her hands on the money. She tells them she is family. Blair gives her back the dog and Tina tells Blair that David Vickers (the dog) has not done anything to Blair that half the men in the town have not done. She realizes she has not met but has heard of Tea and Dani and remarks how lovely they are and introduces herself to Jack. Unexpectedly, her mother appears and scares her.
Todd tells Starr that his mother has told him he needs to give her a microchip that he no longer has. If he had it, hed hand it over to her in a heartbeat. Does she think that he would have wanted to be prevented from getting back to her and to Jack and to his family? He asks her if he is cracking to see a death threat that she cannot see.
Tina is stunned to her mother believing for many years that shes dead. Irene tells her daughter she is very much alive. Viki tells her sister its true. Irene is very much alive. At that point, Tina gives her dog to Viki to hold and passes out.
Starr tells her dad that she might be able to help him unravel the mystery of the things that Irene has done and outsmart her. But, she tells him, even if hes impressed by that, they need to wonder what they (the two of them) are going to do.
Viki revives Tina who is afraid of what may have happened to her dog. Her mom reveals that Tinas overprotectiveness of her dog is because as a child, her mother would not let her have a dog. Tina remembers for the first time that her mother did some dastardly things to her as well as to her sons. Tina admits that she needs a minute there and assesses if its true that Todd had a twin named Victor Lord Jr. who died and did Todd kill him? All the others reply they do not know except for Jack who tells her he did. She asks why nobody told her that her mother came back. Viki tells her sister she was nowhere to be found and concludes that maybe they should postpone the reading of the will since Tina has just had a major shock. Tina attempts to ingratiate herself to Blair reminding her that she has missed Blairs kids, her beloved nieces and nephews. But Blair does not buy that and knows Tina only wants to get her hands on the Will.
Jessica is on the ground with Robert looking like she wants to do more than just help him get up. He tells re if his boss saw what happened to his uniform, hed be in trouble. She thanks him for listening about Natalie and Brody and allowing her to take a punch. He tells her he needs to get back to the store. Alone, she reveals that she might have feelings for Robert and wants to have fun.
Natalie tells Rex that she should not be burdening him with her issues when hes had this tragic loss but tells her brother she cannot do this without his blessing. He tells her she has it. He tells her thats better than what she got from her dad and realizes that Rex might be the only guest at their wedding. When Rex is alone, the waitress comes by to ask how his salad is. And again he envisions Gigi.
Jessica enjoys playing jump rope with girls and remembering having fun. She comes face to face with Natalie and her smile fades while they stare coldly at each other.
Starr tells her father that they have to take his mothers threats to the cops. But he tells her thats easier said than done unless she helps him get out of there.
The man reads the will where Victor directs that all his debts have to be paid off. But Tina realizes this is only article one. He reads article 2 where Victor is ready to will all of his wealth, property, vehicles, monetary wealth and ownership of the Sun to his mother, Irene Manning. Everybody is shocked and horrified to hear that except for Irene.
