During the party Eric kept trying to get alone time with Jackie – to discuss business (hey we believe that). She informed him she was leaving her job as the Fenmore Forrester buyer.

GL by Megan

Ed meets with Dr. Grant and owns up to his two medical mistakes, spinning it in a more positive light by attributing the mistakes to exhaustion and emotional stress due to Shayne’s accident. Dr. Grant is understanding and tells Ed to take a long weekend to recuperate, thus circumventing Rick’s attempt to force Ed on a long-term leave of absence. Rick is displeased at the turn of events.

Reva and Josh run into each other at the hospital. She begs him to let her in on his turmoil, but just as he’s about to confide in her, he shuts down. He makes excuses and goes off to meet Ed. Josh tries to talk Ed into going to the police with him, but Ed just wants to sit tight.

Ed grows agitated and confused, and he gets another violent headache. Ed rushes off.

Michelle grows a spine and accuses Carrie of wanting vengeance, not justice, for Maryanne. She makes it clear to Carrie that she’s through with the mind games and manipulations, and that if Carrie means to harm Ed she’ll have to go over Michelle’s dead body. Carrie insinuates that if she truly wanted vengeance, it would’ve been all too easy. It seems she’s had the three girls under surveillance for years.

Cassie is suspicious about Olivia’s repeated disappearances. As she and Edmund discuss Olivia, talk turns once again to the night of Cassie’s miscarriage. Cassie confesses that she’s had the recurring fantasy that her baby didn’t really die, that it was all an elaborate palace conspiracy to rob Richard of an heir. Edmund is understanding of her feelings and starts to wonder if her fantasy is in fact reality. With that in mind, he approaches Olivia, who still has many important palace and island connections. He starts to explain his theory that a baby thought dead is indeed alive, and Olivia immediately thinks Edmund is on to her until she realizes he’s talking about Cassie. Edmund asks Olivia if there is some credence to Cassie’s fantasy because it was extremely chaotic at the hospital that night and Richard had many enemies (besides Edmund himself) who would’ve concocted such a scheme. When it becomes apparent that Cassie doesn’t know that Edmund is looking into the fantasy theory, Olivia advises him not to go further until he gets Cassie’s okay since only a mother knows what’s best for her child. Olivia goes off to make a secretive phone call and to leave Edmund scratching his head at her parting remark. Olivia’s phone call regarding certain preparations for her and Phillip is overheard by a hidden Lizzie.

Cassie also expresses guilt that she’s kept Sandy at arms length and goes off to make amends with him. Josh joins Reva and admits that he is indeed going through extreme turmoil and that he needs to do the right thing, as Reva herself would do. Reva assures Josh that she’ll be beside him all the way. Cassie stops outside Sandy’s apartment and is stunned to hear Richard’s voice.
