At the hospital, Mimi tells Shawn that he needs to know the truth. Suddenly Bonnie calls out for Mimi (from her bed/cubicle) and her heart monitors go erratic. Mimi and Shawn rush to her as does Lexie. Lexie asks them to wait outside, but Bonnie wants Mimi with her if she goes. Lexie tells her to relax and that Mimi can stay. Bonnies blood pressure suddenly goes back to normal (I think she was squeezing her heart monitor wires), and Lexie thinks Bonnie was just overly excited. Lexie tells Bonnie to just rest while shes checking on the test results, and she tells Mimi not to let her get excited. Lexie walks off, and Shawn goes to talk to her. Mimi tells her mom how sorry she is, she thought this was an act to stop her from telling Shawn that hes Claire's father. Shawn returns and asks what she just said. Of course Shawn didnt hear the whole thing, and Bonnie says Mimi was just saying she was being a bigger baby then Belles baby. Bonnie talks about how she is the worlds worst patient when shes sick. Shawn asks if there is anything they can do to help them get over the stress. Bonnie says Conner was staying at a friends, so could Mimi call the friends mom and arrange for him to stay there awhile longer. Mimi says sure. Shawn goes with Mimi and asks what it was that he wanted to tell him that was so important? Mimi decides to tell Shawn the truth, but Bonnie blurts out that Mimi just feels shes terrible for thinking she was faking her heart attack. Shawn thinks it is something else, but Bonnie doesnt think so. Mimi admits she does feel awful about thinking her mom was faking. Bonnie says given her history of exaggerating its not her fault, shes done this before to get out of work or get some insurance money. Bonnie says those days are over now. Bonnie swears to Mimi that she thought she was going to die. She begs Mimi and Shawn not to do anything to upset her as shes going through this, and Mimi and Shawn promise. Lexie returns, the tests are inconclusive. Lexie decides to admit Bonnie in order to run some more tests. Lexie goes to make arrangements to transfer her to her own room. Lexie then talks to Mimi in private, she needs Mimi to keep Bonnie calm. Mimi thinks this is serious. Lexie says she doesnt know, she just doesn't want to take any chances. Shawn stays with Bonnie and asks if there is anything they can do for her. She asks them to watch over Alices. Mimi returns and says they can do that, is there anything else? Bonnie says there is one other thing. She says this could give her a reason to live, or at least give her a reason to die in peace. She wants Shawn and Mimi to marry ASAP. Bonnie tells Shawn to grant a possible dying womans last wish and marry Mimi while shes here to see it.
At the loft, Caroline is stunned that Belle wishes Shawn was Claires father. Belle knows its wrong, but it is what she wishes. Belle says they spent their whole lives planning their future, and she cant stop wishing they were together. Caroline says but shes married to Phillip. Belle knows, but she still loves Shawn. Caroline says of course she loves him, he was her first boyfriend and her first great love. She knows how that feels. Belle asks if she still loves Victor. Caroline says part of her does, and part of Belle will always love Shawn. Caroline tries to give Belle advice, focus on the wonderful life she has with Phillip. Belle says what about the life she could have had with Shawn, the life she could still have. Caroline says that will just make her crazy. Belle looks through her scrapbook and all her memories of Shawn. Caroline says shes been through some difficult years, and its natural to yearn for things the way they used to be. However shes a grownup now with her own child. Belle knows, but its hard to see none of her dreams came true. Belle continues looking through her scrapbook and all of her dreams. Caroline tells Belle to put it away. Belle says she believed that once she and Phillip had a baby that shed forget how much she loved Shawn. She says maybe it is that she gave Claire the name she and Shawn chose, or that when she looks at Claire she thinks about what she and Shawn had, or it is when she looks at her she thinks of Shawn. She says and when she does look at her and think of Shawn, she loves him even more. Caroline asks if she is not in love with Phillip? Belle says no she does love Phillip, it is just that whenever she looks at Claire she thinks about Shawn. Caroline thinks that is because as they talked about before, Claire does look like Shawn. Belle says she does love Phillip, and he and Claire are her family. Caroline says and Mimi and Shawn will get married soon, maybe that will make it easier for her. Belle says yes, and they are her best friends. However she says that she and Shawn didnt really have an end to their relationship, they didnt break up or fall out of love. Belle says Jan kidnapped Shawn, and she thought Shawn left her. She says by time she figured it out, she was married. Caroline asks if she is saying marrying Phillip was a mistake? Belle thinks about her wedding and she says marrying Phillip wasnt a mistake, but she thinks she maybe she married him for the wrong reasons. Caroline says the vows she took with Phillip are sacred, though not everyone sees them that way. Caroline says she was in love with Victor, but she gave him up to stay married to Shawn (Sr). Belle asks if she thinks about what might have been. Caroline says yes, but then she thinks about everything she has with Shawn Sr. Caroline tells Belle if she ever needs to talk then call her, she cant talk to Shawn or Phillip about this. Belle says shes talked with Shawn and they know where they stand. Belle says shes at peace with her decision to stay with Phillip. Caroline says shes doing the right thing, shell see this in time. Belle hopes so, and she says she has a great husband and a beautiful and healthy baby.
At Samis place, Austin begs Carrie to give him a moment to explain. He asks her to come inside Samis place, and Carrie says fine. Lucas grabs Sami aside and says if Austin is going to make Carrie an offer they cant refuse then they have to do something. Sami says so all of the sudden he wants to help her keep Carrie away from Austin. He says more like keep Austin away from Carrie. Sami says lets do it. Meanwhile, Austin says he should put on a shirt. Carrie says dont bother, shes seen him in a lot less. She says it wont affect what he has to say to her. He says High Style might not exist, but the product line does. He says its a division of Austin Reed and Company, and he wants to hire her to run the division. Carrie says he has her attention, go on. Austin says High Style had a great line and her companies issues were bad management choices. Austin says if he takes care of management and she takes care of the product then High Style will be better then ever. She says but it wont be her company. Lucas says it wont. Austin says its a merger of sorts, theyll be business partners. Sami looks at Lucas as if to do something. Lucas speaks up and says this isnt an offer, this is like jumping someone in an alley and then apologizing and asking them on a date. Austin tells Lucas to butt out. He says Carries been hurt enough, he wont let it happen again. Austin says the last thing he wanted to do was hurt Carrie and he didnt know the company was hers. He says he just wanted his company to be a success. Lucas says by stealing other peoples ideas, he couldnt come up with an idea of his own? Austin says its not like Titan is any different, he went after High Style too. Lucas says but he didnt take it over. Austin says what is done is done, he thinks this offer is a good one, they are a perfect match. Lucas says hes already made Carrie an offer to work at Titan. Austin says he can give her control of the High Style product again, Titan cant give her that, Titan can only give her a million people looking over her shoulder. Sami tells Lucas that Carries buying this so do something. Lucas asks Austin if he will hire Carries employees back? Austin says hed like to, but not at this point. It isnt possible. Sami says they dont have the ability to restructure now, and if they did their investors might pull out. Austin says perhaps in six months to a year they can hire them back. Lucas hopes they will have found another job by them to support themselves and their families, otherwise they will have one tough year. Lucas tells Carrie if she comes to Titan then she can create her own LA division and hire back her employees. Sami says so Carrie would be in LA? Lucas says no, Carrie would be based in Salem, she has to develop other product lines. However she can supervise the person she chooses to run the LA division. Lucas starts talking about how he respects the family type atmosphere she created out in LA. Sami says so its up to Carrie, which deal is she going to take. Carrie tells Austin its too little, too late. She says Lucas has been wonderful to her since finding out High Style was her company, and how much her employees mean to her. Carrie tells Austin that she doesnt trust him, shes taking the job at Titan to rehire all her employees. Austin thinks this is a mistake, but she says he made the mistake by taking over her company without finding out she was the CEO. Austin says she knows him, but she says hes changed. She says hes just another heartless corporate shark. She tells Lucas they should go, and they leave. In the hall, Carrie thinks Austin has changed, the Austin she knew would know how much her employees mean to her. Lucas tells Carrie if she sees him changing that way to call him on it. Carrie says deal, and she thanks him for what hes done for her. He says there is nothing he wouldnt do for her. Back in the apartment, Sami tells Austin hes sorry, but Lucas was manipulative and determined to turn Carrie against him. She says Lucas has declared war on him. Austin says hell burry Lucas. Sami is glad to hear that, she says they have to attack Lucas and Carrie before they attack them. Sami says Lucas has given them no other choice.
At the courthouse, Chelsea swears it was an accident, but Hope says an
accident that wouldnt have happened if she didnt steal Bos car and
go joy riding without a license. Chelsea says she had a license and
permission, dad handed her the keys. Hope thinks Chelsea is lying. Bo tells
Hope they need to talk, but she says there is nothing to talk about. She
wants Bo to call Chelsea out on being a liar. Hope tells Bo how they gave
her driving lessons for Christmas to make her a better driver, but obviously
they didnt work. She says her adoptive parents were in a horrible car
crash and that taught her nothing. She says nothing gets through to Chelsea,
shes a pathological liar like her mother. Bo tells Hope that he has to
tell her something, there is something she must understand. Hope asks what
he wants her to understand, the two of them have kept them from finding out
the truth. Bo thinks they should talk privately, but Hope refuses. Patrick
thinks it is a good idea, but Hope wont. She wants Bo to call his
daughter on her lies and whatever he has to say he can say in front of
everyone. Bo tells Hope that Chelsea isnt lying. Hope says no, no please!
She tells Bo to tell her that he didnt approve of her license, that he
didnt give her the car. We see flashbacks of Bo doing just that. Bo tells
Hope hes sorry, but she just cries and screams. Bo explains the story to
Hope, and he says he thought he was doing the right thing. He thought that
since she didnt drink shed be safer driving herself on New Years Eve.
Hope cant believe this, he is her husband and Zacks father, how could
he keep the truth from her. Hope says Patrick is the only one who has been
honest, are they all lying to try and make things easier for Chelsea? She
thinks Bo is covering for Chelsea again. Bo says nobody is lying, he signed
the license. Hope asks Bo how he could lie to her, they all lied to her.
Hope tells Bo that he knew all along and let her think Billie was
responsible. Bo asks to explain, but she says there is no explanation. She
tells Bo not to touch her, she doesnt want him near her. Hope takes off.
Bo watches and says what have I done?
At the hospital, Lexie is in a room looking at some charts when Tek shows
up and calls her "baby." He says hes been looking all over for
her. He pulls her into a kiss. He then pulls her into the bath room and she
says Tek no! A nurse then brings Abe in, hes in a wheelchair and
his eyes are bandaged. He says he thought his wife would be here, but hes
sure shell be here soon. In the bath room, Lexie asks Tek what he thinks
hes doing? She says hes playing a very dangerous game, her husband is
just outside this door. She says he just had a cornea transplant, a very
delicate operation. She says if he gets his sight back then this better not
be the first thing he sees. Tek just wanted to spend time with her. Lexie
says she has told him over and over again that she is staying with Abe, Abe
is her only focus. He was hoping shed change her mind, but she says she
wont. Tek says just because he got his sight back doesnt mean
theyll be happy, he hasnt satisfied her in bed for a long time. He
thinks she should be with someone who can treat her right. Lexie says and he
thinks hes that man? Tek says he does. Tek says he wants to say his peace
and then hell go. He says when he just kissed her, she kissed him back.
He says he knows she doesnt want to disappoint Abe, but what kind of
husband has he been to her. He says sex is part of marriage and that
hasnt been a part of their marriage in a long time. He also says he
hasnt been a good companion either, there are things he can still do but
they dont. He says then there is Theo, hes not even there for their
son. Tek says losing one's sight is a terrible thing, but its not the end
of the world. Lexie says enough. She says nobodys life is perfect and Abe
is a good man. She tells Tek that hes supposed to be Abes friend and
respect him. Tek says he does respect Abe, but he loves her. They then share
a hot kiss. In the next room, Abe cant find his robe and asks the nurse
to check if someone hung it up in the closet or bathroom. She goes to check
and opens the door to the bathroom, where Lexie and Tek are kissing. Tek and
Lexie hide in the shower as the Nurse looks in and gets the robe. After she
leaves, Lexie tells Tek whatever they had in the past it is over. She says
she is sorry if she gave him mixed signals, but she loves Abe and is staying
with him. Tek says he knows the vibe he gets from her, what they have and
feel wont go away. Lexie is paged, she says a patient needs her and she
has to get out of here. Tek creaks the door open and sees Abe sitting out
there. Lexie quietly walks into the room and tries to sneak past Abe. She
does, but he ends up hearing Tek trying to do the same. Abe demands to know
who is here. Tek says its him. Abe asks what brings him here. Tek says he
came to see his wife.
Bonnie is pacing around her room talking about how she has to do this to keep Mimi from losing Shawn. Bonnie looks at her charts and says she really stumped the doctors this time. She hates to worry Mimi, but her wanting to be ethical and moral is really raising her blood pressure. She just hopes Shawn will grant her dying wish. Elsewhere, Mimi thinks about her mom saying she wanted to know that Mimi would be married to the man she loves and taken care of before she died. Mimi wonders how she can marry Shawn knowing hes the father of Belles baby. Shawn walks up to her and thinks shes thinking about her mom and the two of them getting married as soon as possible. Shawn tells Mimi that he thinks they should do it. Mimi says before they set a wedding date they have to talk. Bonnie hears this from her room and realizes she has to do something. Bonnie screams out and acts like shes in pain. Mimi and Shawn run to her, and Mimi asks what she can do to help. Bonnie says there might be one thing she can do. Bonnie tells Mimi and Shawn that she doesnt think shell be able to come back from this, she should have started taking better care of herself a long time ago but didnt. She tells Mimi not to be mad at her. Bonnie says she just wants Mimi to be happy, and she begs them to get married while shes still here to see it. Mimi asks Shawn to give her and her mom a few minutes alone. Shawn leaves, and Mimi tells her mom to drop it. Mimi says she wont start her marriage off with a lie, Shawn has to know the truth. She says she lost Rex due to a lie, so if she loses Shawn then it is the price she has to pay. Bonnie says shes making a big mistake. Shawn returns and says he paged Lexie to come look at Bonnie. Lexie soon shows up, and Lexie looks at her charts and decides to get to the bottom of things. Shawn and Mimi leave as Lexie examines Bonnie. Lexie asks Bonnie about the pains. Bonnie tells Lexie shes in pain, its like a dagger or machete slicing into her. Lexie decides to order more tests for Bonnie just to be safe. Lexie tells Bonnie that women entering menopause are candidates for heart disease, so there are things she can do to nip this in the bud like exercise, stop smoking and reducing stress. Lexie goes out to see Mimi and Shawn. Lexie tells Mimi that shes very concerned about her mom. Lexie says Bonnie needs to quit smoking, drinking, exercise more, go on a low fat diet. Mimi thinks about her moms wild ways and how this wont go over well at all. Mimi worries what if her mom really is dying? Shawn thinks perhaps they should give her mom her wish. He says whats the big deal about it anyways. She says her family isn't up for this now. He says maybe this is what his family needs right now, so why not. Mimi thinks they should talk about it later. Mimi heads in to see her mom. Bonnie tells Mimi that she knows she hasnt always been the best mom, but she did the best she could. Bonnie tells Mimi that she loves her, and she knows she embarrasses her sometimes. However she does want to make sure that shes taken care of. Mimi says there are no guarantees. Bonnie says it would give her peace of mind. Bonnie asks Mimi if she will forget about this Claire thing and make her mom happy? Mimi says she guesses. Bonnie says so shell marry Shawn pronto? Mimi says yes.
At the courthouse, Chelsea says she cant believe this is happening. She says she killed her baby brother and now her life is over. Billie tells her that once the judge hears her case she could be let off with a fine and community service. Chelsea doubts that, and no matter what the judge decides her life is pretty much over. Billie just wishes there was something she could do about it. Patrick tells Billie that shes done enough. Billie lashes out at Patrick for not minding his own business. He says he wasnt going to let her go to jail for something Chelsea did, and he cant believe Chelsea was willing to let her go to jail for her. Billie says this is between her and Chelsea, he should have stayed out of it. Patrick tells Chelsea that hes always tried to be good to her and he cares about her. She says the only person he cares about is Billie. Patrick says the truth would have come out eventually, and perhaps the judge will go lenient on her. Chelsea doubts that and storms off. Billie tries to go after her, but Patrick says let her go. Billie says no, she is her mother and this was the one thing she could do for her. Billie says because of him now she cant. Billie tells Patrick that he doesnt have kids, he doesnt understand. He says he understands covering up your childs mistakes isnt right. Billie tells Patrick he had no right to do what he did. Patrick says hes sorry if he ruined her little plan. Billie tells Patrick that she thought they had something special but she was wrong. Billie tells Patrick it was a mistake to ever get involved with him and they are finished. Patrick says she cant be serious, but she is. She says he didnt respect her wishes. She says there was a time when she thought . . . never mind, it doesnt matter. Patrick says theyve gotten very close, he doesnt want it to end. Billie says shes been trying to get close to Chelsea, but now that will never happen. Patrick says he did what he thought was right.
Bo is on the phone. Hes leaving yet another message on Hopes cell phone. He says hes worried about her, they just lost their son and they cant lose each other. He says hes worried about her and for her to call him. Later Chelsea runs into Bo. He asks where shes going? She says anywhere but here, she cant be here anymore as shes so scared.
Later, Bo finds Billie and Patrick arguing. Bo tells Patrick to leave Billie alone. Patrick says this doesnt concern him. Billie says they have nothing left to talk about, and she tells Patrick to go. He says fine if that is what she wants. Patrick tells Billie it didnt have to be this way. He then leaves. Bo then gets a call from the station. He tells Billie that shes free to go, the charges have been dropped. Billie says now Chelsea will be charged. Bo says hes afraid so. Chelsea is hiding in the corner and listening to this. Chelsea eventually comes out, and Bo tells them that the Assistant DA is being sent over to file charges against Chelsea for Zacks death.
Hope goes over to Jens house to see her. Jen asks what is wrong, come in and talk to her. Hope tells Jen that Bo lied to her, it wasnt Billie who killed Zack it was Chelsea. Hope says Billie and Bo tried to cover it up and lied to her. Hope explains the whole story to Jen about Bo signing the license and then giving her his car that night. Hope then remembers when they were at the hospital, Bo had to go pick up Chelsea, and later he got another call from Chelsea. She says then she found Zack. Hope says Chelsea didnt even know she hit Zack, she didnt bother to stop and check. Hope cant believe Bo kept all this from her. Hope says as soon as the cops said it was his car that he kept saying it was a misunderstanding. Hope says he lied to her. Jen says maybe Bo was waiting for the shock of Zacks death to wear off, think of the position he was in. Hope tells Jen not to defend Bo! Jen says shes not defending Bo, well she is but . . . Jen tells Hope she loves her and Bo, and she believes Bo was trying to spare her feelings. Jen says look at what Jack did trying to keep the truth about his illness from her. Hope says that was wrong just like what Bo did was wrong. Patrick then shows up at the door. He came by to check on Jen. Jen says this isnt a good time. Patrick knows Hope is here, he saw her car. Jen says Hope isnt doing well and she doesnt know how shell recover from this. Jen lets Patrick in. He says he just came from the courthouse, and because of this senseless tragedy, Bo may lose both of his children. Hope walks out and says if that happens then he has nobody to blame but himself. Hope asks how she can ever forgive him. Hope tells Patrick that he knows she cares about Chelsea, but she doesnt care about anyone but herself. Hope says she treated Chelsea as her own, but now she wishes she never came into their lives. Patrick understands that, and he knows what Billie and Bo did was wrong. Hope says she will do whatever she can to make sure Chelsea gets the maximum sentence. Patrick says it was an accident and Chelsea is devastated over this. Hope doesnt think Chelsea feels any remorse at all. Patrick swears she is genuinely upset. Hope says Chelsea was willing to let Billie go to jail for her, that isnt human. Patrick thinks she should talk to Bo and Chelsea, they need to work this out. Hope says right now she doesnt care if she ever sees either one of them again. Jen realizes she has to check on the baby, but Hope says shell do it. Jen tells Patrick that shes never seen Hope like this. Jen doesnt know how shell get through this without Bo. Patrick says she has to find a way to forgive Bo. Jen says Bo has done the same thing to Hope that Jack did to her, not only has Hope lost her son but she may lose her marriage.

At the hospital, Tek tells Abe that hes here to see Lexie. Abe says shes not here, but hed like to talk to Tek about his relationship with Lexie. Lexie walks into the room as Abe says this, but Abe doesn't realize she's there. Abe tells Tek that hes been pretty rough on him lately, and hed like to fix that. He says before he lost his eyesight they worked well together. He says then he got paranoid, he thought Tek was after his wife. He says because he couldnt see, his imagination got wild. He asks Tek if hell accept his apology. The listening Lexie thinks about how she just kissed Tek. Tek tells Abe that Lexie is a desirable woman and hed be crazy not to go after her. Abe says he guesses he had it backwards, Tek should be apologizing to him for coveting his wife! Tek says he was just saying any man would want Lexie, and hed never come between his marriage as he respects it. Tek says hes a lucky man. Abe knows that and says when he gets his bandages off then hell keep his eyes on his desirable wife. Lexie walks in and asks what hes saying about her? Abe says of they were just taking a poll of who the hottest woman here was, she won. Lexie says hes so silly. She says Dr. Gibbons says the donors family wont keep the identity of the corneas he received anonymous, so he can know if he wants. Abe says that would be great. Lexie says she needs to go check in with the nurses station. Tek goes with her, and Lexie thanks him for not saying anything. Tek says he hates lying, but it would be hard for Abe to hear that hes in love with her. Lexie tells Tek that she feels sorry about what has happened, and in another lifetime they could have had something, but in this lifetime Abe is her husband. Tek knows they could have a future together. Lexie goes back into Abes room and is with him as the bandages are removed. Abe opens his eyes, and he can see Lexie. He says shes so beautiful. Lexie is thrilled that the operation worked. Before the nurse leaves she hands Abe an envelope with the name of his donor. Abe opens it up and is stunned, the donor is Zack. Lexie begins to cry when she reads the letter. Abe says two years ago Zack gave him the gift of being a father, and now hes given him the gift of sight. Abe tells Lexie that he knows hes been terrible the last year, he felt so sorry for himself. He says he cant believe everything he took for granted, but he wont do that ever again. Lexie thinks in honor of Zack this should be a new start for both of them. Abe says yes and it would be a dishonor not to. A spying Tek says Lexie may be happy with Abe now, but it wont last, thats a promise.
At Chez Rouge, Lucas and Carrie arrive. Lucas wants this dinner to be a celebration of Carrie coming to work at Titan. Carrie tells Lucas that she hasnt signed anything yet, and shes not sure about this. She says that is why shes lousy at business. Lucas tells her not to let Austin get to her, dont sell herself short. Carrie says shes already run one company into the ground, she doesnt know how big of an asset shell be since her heart isnt in this yet. Lucas thinks they can work on that. As they talk about Austin, Carrie wonders if Lucas is saying that Austins business philosophy has nothing to do with the person he is, and if she should forgive him? Lucas says that would be her decision. Roman comes up to them and says hello to them both. Roman says it feels good to have Carrie back, even if its only temporary. Carrie says shes actually staying here, Lucas offered her a job at Titan and shes taking it. Roman says thats great. Roman says hell see her later.
Nicole is drinking up champagne at Chez Rouge. Roman asks if she drank that all by herself? She says he wasnt here, what was she supposed to do. Austin and Sami show up, Nicole invited them here to meet with a man they need to convince to come over to their side. When Austin meets their newest investor, Austin cant believe it. Austin introduces Larry Tate to Sami, he and Nicole did business with him at Titan. Larry says Austin has done well for himself, hes impressed with the High Style takeover. Austin assures Larry that how it went down isnt his style at all. Nicole asks Sami to entertain Mr. Tate while she speaks to Austin. Sami and Larry sit and drink. Meanwhile, Nicole tells Austin to stop worrying about Carrie and High Style, whats done is done. She says Larry lives for takeovers, and he needs to win Mr. Tate over. She says he can give them the money for six High Styles and then he can give one to Carrie with a big red bow. Austin says shes right. Austin and Nicole return to the table, but Roman intercepts Nicole first. He overheard Nicole telling something to Austin about giving something with a bow to Carrie, he thanks her for trying to help them work things out. Nicole reminds Roman of the last time they drank here. He remembers going home with a big smile on his face. She suggests he go home with her tonight. Roman says wow, theyve had a lot to drink so he should go before he does something he wants to. Roman says he needs to go take a cold shower, but hell see her around. Roman then gives her a peck and leaves.
Meanwhile, Larry tells Austin how much he admires how he took over High Style, will he use that slash and burn technique with every company he goes after? Austin says breaking up High Style gave him an appetite for more of the same, its his future. As Austin says this, Carrie walks by in the background. Larry says going after High Style was a stroke of genius, the product was great and the CEO was weak. Sami sees Carrie is listening and tries to signal Austin, but fails. Carrie interjects herself into the conversation and introduces her as High Styles weak CEO. She cant believe Austin is celebrating his victory. She tells Austin he destroyed the lives of so many people, and she thought he never meant to hurt anyone. She says hes turned into someone who has no conscious and terrible taste in dinner companions. Carrie runs off, and Lucas wonders what they said to her. Sami tells Lucas not to get involved in this. Lucas tells her that Austin doesnt belong with Carrie. Sami says dont worry, if they work together then Austin and Carrie are over.
Austin chases after Carrie. Austin says hes sorry about that, and what happened between their companies was just business. Carrie says High Style meant everything to her. Austin knows, but he also knows if they didnt take her over then another company would have. He says High Style was vulnerable. She says all she needed was more time. Austin says and better management skills and work ethics from her employees. He says he sounds harsh, but its the truth. He tells Carrie that shes a brilliant and creative person, but shes not cut out to be a CEO. He says its nothing to be ashamed of. Carrie says the only thing shes ashamed of is how she ended their marriage. Carrie says she should have left Austin sooner, they were never meant to be. She tells him that there is nothing left, its over.
Roman returns home. There is a knock at his door, Nicole followed him! He asks what shes doing here. She says invite her in and find out. Roman doesnt know about this. Nicole walks in and says shes sure enough for the both of them. She takes off her red imitation fur coat and reveals her sexy dress (or slip) to Roman.
In court, Bo talks with Billie, he still cant find Hope. Billie tells him to go find Hope, but Bo says she doesnt want to be found right now. He says the assistant DA is on his way and Chelsea will need them. Billie says she knew this would happen, she knew that when they found out about Chelsea that shed come between him and Hope. She says this is why she confessed, so he could be there for Hope and Chelsea. Bo says he doesnt have to make a choice between Hope and Chelas. Billie says no, but it is in his nature to be protective. She says she knows hed go to the mat for Chelsea, but it could cost him his marriage. He says he wont let that happen. However he says what hes most feared would happen has, now he doesnt know where Hope is and she wants nothing to do with him.
Chelsea walks into an empty courtroom and sits down. Shes in tears. She cant stop thinking about hitting Zack. She says she wishes she could have a second chance. Kate walks up and says shes felt that way many times, but you only get one chance in life. Chelsea says she killed her baby brother. Kate says she didnt mean to do it. Chelsea says still Zack is dead and shes responsible, and shell have to live with that for the rest of her life. Kate says she will pull every string she can, she has a lot of connections. However she doesnt know if she can get her out of this completely as this is a serious matter, and Hope will be on a rampage against her. Kate says if she was Hope, shed probably feel the same way. Chelsea says no matter what the court decides, Zack is gone and nothing will change that. Chelsea talks about how shes gone over that night in her head a lot, what did she do wrong? She says she wasnt speeding. The Assistant DA Brett Wietz comes in and says he can answer that question. He asks if Chelseas attorney is present. She says she doesnt have one. He suggests she get one as they have a witness that says she reached for her cell phone at the time of the accident. Bo and Billie walk in, and they ask what is going on. The Assistant DA says hes filed charges for first degree vehicular manslaughter against Chelsea, and he needs Bo to arrest his daughter. Bo thought they were going to discuss this before charges were filed. The Assistant DA says his hands are tied, the DA is hot for this case. Bo says it was an accident, but the Asst DA says Chelsea has shown no remorse for what she did and the DA has noted that. Chelsea says thats not true, she loved Zack. Brett tells Bo that hes knows its difficult but he has to make this arrest. Chelsea cant believe this, her own father has to arrest her? Billie and Kate leave Bo with Chelsea. Bo tells Chelsea that getting arrested isnt fun, but he and her mom will be here for her. Chelsea says what about Hope, she hates her. Bo says Hope will come around eventually. Chelsea says her son is dead because of her. Bo says Zack was his son too, but Chelsea says shes not Hopes daughter. Bo says lets not worry about that now, they need to find her a good lawyer who understands this was an accident and shes sorry. Chelsea says she is sorry.
Out in the hall, Kate tells Billie that shes so sorry for what shes going through. Billie says this trial will be awful, Hope is on the warpath against Chelsea.
