Cane is encouraged by Lilys call to come to the house, but its not what he expects. She doesnt want to continue with counseling. They can work things out themselvestonight.
Tessa drives through the darkness. Shes determined to get Crystal one way or another. Very well, Mariah says, but how? Tessa is going to demand that Alice hand over Crystal. Mariah thinks the plan needs work, but she has no ideas of her own.
Scott and Sharon dine at the athletic club and talk about the sex trafficking operation. From the doorway, Abby sees Scott and refuses to go farther. She gets more than enough of Scott at the office. Zack comes up with a wacky idea: Why dont they join Scott and Sharon? Its a great opportunity to get honest feedback on Design Date. Sharon was skeptical when she first heard about it. Abby groans again. No work tonight. Zack apologizes for his one-track mind, but hes eager to impress her. Back at the table, Sharon is creeped out that men like Irv feel the need to buy companionship. Scott cant dwell on it. Hes busy thinking about a new angle to work to complete his story. As for Sharon, she just wants to rescue Crystal. Abby and Zack approach with their odd request.
Tessa and Mariah sit in the car outside Alices house, still arguing about how to proceed. Mariah just wants Tessa to be cautious. Whatever they do could have repercussions for Crystal or Tessa or both. Tessa is touched by her concern. Yeah, well, Mariah lost her sister, and she wont allow Tessa to lose hers.
At the Ashbys: Cane and Lily joke about Matties reasons for wanting her dad home. Of course shed love for him to accept Reed, but she also misses family life. Shes not the only one, but Lily wants to do whatever is best for the kids. If Cane were to land a job and move home, they could give it a try. Cane notices that Lily speaks only of the kids needs, not her own. She tears up. Although he hurt her deeply, she still loves him. He is visibly moved.
In the house, Alice preps her two best girls, Natalia and Anna. A limo roars up to take them on their dates. Tessa is horrified to think her kid sister is caught up in such business. When they were young, Tessa didnt have a friend to lean on, but now she does in Mariah, and she doesnt want to lose her. Why would she? Well, because Tessa has a plan, but Mariah wont like it.
At the club, Hilary sips a martini and enjoys her own company. Devon understands shes adrift after losing Jordan. Hilary doesnt give him the satisfaction. For his information, she has a full life. She has her dessert commercial, she has something in the works with Jabot, and she and Chelsea are going to enter into a deal wherein Hilary will get a designer wardrobe to wear on air. But she cant fool him. Nothing is ever enough for her.
At the Ashbys: Lily and Cane seem to be on the road to reconciliation until she stops to consider his life from here on. Hell have another son who deserves his attention. Cane calls that a nonissue. Juliette knows where his priorities lie. Lily tells him to be realistic. She is, and she wont be able to accept the situation. She rises from the sofa and opens the front door for Cane. He refuses to accept her decision but honors her immediate wish. Before he walks out, he strokes her cheek. She recoils. After she closes the door, she cries.
In her suite, Juliette admires her profile in the mirror and recalls Canes vow of support at the hospital.
In the club dining room: Devon accuses Hilary of manipulating him. She wanted him to confront Jordan about his designs on Lily. Hilary sees no harm. She and Devon had different motives but the same goal. Devon asks why Hilary cant let go of a man who clearly has no interest in her. Hilary wonders why he cares. Shes self-assured; Devon seems to be the one with the problem. Devon smiles knowingly. He sees her vulnerability. She huffs.
Across the room, dinner conversation flows easily until Zack asks about Scotts sex trafficking article. Hes not prepared to discuss it, but rest assured it will be mind-blowing.
Alice gives the girls a few last-minute pointers and then nudges them out the door. Moments later, the doorbell rings. Thinking its one of the girls who forgot something, she flings open the door. Tessa throws a blanket over Alices head and tackles her.
Cane nurses a drink at the athletic club bar and isnt in the mood for Juliettes small talk or words of encouragement. Hes sure Lilys mind is made up, and its because of the baby. Juliette feels terrible . . . all because of one night in Tokyo. She leaves him in his misery.
Devon pays Lily a visit and gets the news. Lilys original intention was to work things out with Cane, but in the moment, she realized she will never accept his child with Juliette. That and his many lies drove her over the edge. For what its worth, Devon thinks she made the right decision. But did she? What will it do to the kids? Devon thinks they and Lily deserve better. Its funny, Lily thought shed feel at peace, but she doesnt. Love doesnt just disappear, Devon says, and he gives her a comforting hug. Lily is grateful for Devons support, and shes glad the twins have each other. Devon praises Lilys strength and asks what now. The next step will be harder than the first, she says.
Sharon and Scott are ready to head home. Abby picks up the check, and Zack thanks them for their perspective on Design Date. Zack and Abby pat themselves on the back, and to Abbys chagrin, Zack gushes about Scott and his very interesting article idea.
Tessa drives while Mariah wails about the crime theyve just committed. Still, she wont bail on Tessa. Alice cries out from the backseat. When they arrive at the ranch, they hustle Alice, with a bag over her head, into the stable and tie her to a chair (how cliché). When Tessa removes the head covering, Alice recognizes her. Tessa introduces herself as Crystals sister. Thats right, Crystal has someone who gives a damn about her, unlike Alices other victims. She interrogates Alice and threatens to call the police.
In the club foyer, Zack tries to charm Abby into taking a room for the night. Shes coy but refuses.
At home, Sharon evaluates the evening. Doubling wasnt so bad. Zack seems like a decent guy. Mariah descends the stairs, her arms filled with bottles of water. Naturally Sharon asks. Mariah and Tessa are working on a project. She leaves without further explanation.
Cane approaches Hilarys table at the club and tells her his marriage is history. She urges him to keep trying. Lily loves him. He shakes his head. Obviously Hilary still has hopes regarding Jordan. For once he acknowledges that theyre a couple of losers. Hilary persists and appeals to his sense of family. Oh, make no mistake, Cane hasnt given up on his family.
Sharon talks to Faith on the phone and says goodnight. Scott thinks its a bit odd Faith wanted to spend her first night with Sharon on a sleepover at a friends. Sharon isnt bothered. In fact, shes glad Faith is adjusting so well. Mariah is another story. Did she seem nervous to Scott? Scott barely noticed. He was too busy putting two and two together. He and Sharon have a bottle of wine and a night of privacy.
Mariah returns to the stable and shoves a bottle of water at Alice. Alice sees Cassies twin and faints.
