In his courtroom, Judge Morrissey goes over the charges again that are brought against Jackie. She is more than agitated and tries to interject. Doesn’t she have a right to speak? He answers that this isn’t a trial; just a trial for bail hearing. He announces these are extremely serious charges and that Ms. Gilmore even makes a compelling argument that she could be considered a serious flight risk. He offers this is not an easy decision to make. Nick loses it and says, “Oh, for God’s sake, just get on with it. Can I take my mother home or not?”

Felicia apologizes to Bridget for blurting out that Dominick would be living there with her. Bridget also wants to take back words she said about overnight visits. Of course, Felicia is his mother and she’d want him to be with her. Felicia says she is not out of the woods yet. She still needs Bridget. Dominick needs her too. She doesn’t know how long she has left – weeks, days or months. She starts to make a promise. Bridget tells her no more promises. She asks Dante to take her home. Felicia wants to speak alone with her first.

Nick apologizes to the court. This is just a very frustrating situation. The Judge tells him to hold his tongue, or he will have him removed. He continues – he has weighed everything he has heard here today. The Government’s case against Mrs. Marone, evidence from the files from her personal computers, and the surprisingly impassioned plea for his ex-wife by Mrs. Marone’s former husband. Mass speaks up and says whatever their differences, she is and always will be his son’s mother. He starts to bring up the affairs when Jackie’s attorney tries to stop him. Mass simply says he is sure if she had to do it all over again, she’s make different choices. Brooke gives him an icy glare. The Judge says his apparent willingness to forgive is commendable. But marital infidelity isn’t at issue here. And all things being considered, bail is denied. Jackie laments that she has to go back to jail? Nick asks the Judge before he walks off, where in the hell does he think he’s going? The Judge tells him one more word and he will hold him in contempt. Mr. McCoy restrains Nick and tells him it won’t do him any good to be in jail too.

Eric stands by helplessly, Jackie’s cuffs are snapped back on her and she cries for Nicky to help her. He rushes to her and tells her he loves her and he’ll get to the bottom of this. Mass steps into her path and says he’s sorry. But, she glares at him that he did this on purpose to punish her, and she reaches up to strike him with her cuffs. Nick hollers after her that he will get her out of this. Then he turns back to Mass and says and when that happens, he WILL find out who put her here.

He and Brooke commiserate about the situation. She offers that it’s clear that Jackie thinks Mass set her up and when he brought up the divorce, he couldn’t have made her look any worse. She knows Nick doesn’t want to believe that. He says what is important now is getting her out of this. He’s going back to her office and look through files, anything to help clear her. He gives her a quick kiss and thanks her for being there.

We see a mysterious black-garmented figure let themselves in at Jackie M’s. The shoes would indicate a female.

Dante and Christian have a little heart to heart. Dante seems bitter. Yes, even though Felicia was dying, he expects her to hold up her end of the bargain. And he tells Christian real quickly that he’s the bio dad so that gives him the right to have a lot more to say about this than he does. Felicia tells Bridget she should have been more sensitive and felt what Bridget must have been feeling last night. Felicia says she begged her to be Dominick’s mother and she agreed even though she had misgivings. Bridget says all it takes is for her to rock him and watch his little eyes go limp, and she’s his mother. He needs her. Felicia sobs that Bridget gave her something she can never thank her for enough – peace of mind. She knew she could leave her son because he would be loved by Bridget. They come to an understanding when Felicia says she had no choice. She had to give up her son, but Bridget doesn’t have to. Bridget wonders where does that leave her? Felicia tells her right there with her. Both she and her son need Bridget for whatever time she has left. “Two mommies, I think it can work. I KNOW it can.” Bridget sighs that she doesn’t know if she can do what Felicia is asking. Felicia tells her she knows she can. She’s the selfless, giving one. Felicia is the selfish bitch. And if there is one thing she knows – that Dominick a.k.a. Dino will come to love her as much, more than Felicia does.

Christian tells Dante it seems they got off on the wrong foot. Dante snarls that whatever happens between him, Bridget and Felicia is their business. Christian states that Felicia is his patient. Dante wonders if that is all? He says he cares for her. Dante tells him to stay out of it. He will decide, with Dino’s mother, what is best for his son.

Nick lets himself into Jackie M’s and starts looking around through files until he hears a mysterious sound.

Brooke pays Massimo a little visit at his office. He seems delighted to see her, even expecting her. They understand each other. She laments she’s had years of experience – The Stephanie Forrester School of Parental Manipulation. He agrees they love fiercely. She extols that is just a cover-up for what he’s really doing, controlling people’s lives. He tells her she is a very beautiful woman, and he can understand why his son is so infatuated by her. She offers, “but, you are going to decide which son will HAVE me?” He reminds her she has a child with Ridge. But, she adds a future with Nick! He tells her she doesn’t. “Because you won’t allow it?” she asks. “My God, what kind of world do you live in?” Smirking, he says he thought she would know by now. She tells him oh yeah, because of what he did to Jackie in that farce of a hearing. He was supposed to be there to support her, but he made her look like an oversexed tramp. He starts, well a woman who can’t control herself sexually……..Brooke asks what? Should be stoned in the village square? He’d already convicted her of adultry. Brooke accuses him of setting Jackie up to punish her and for Brooke for loving the wrong son.

Felicia and Bridget continue their talk. Bridget tells her she loves her even if she weren’t her sister. “Triumph in the face of adversity……..what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.” Bridget ends up telling her she will be proud to share that child with her. Christian interrupts just long enough to give Felicia the results of her lab tests. Her white blood cell count is almost back to normal. She’s doing as good as they could possibly hope for. Bridget beams that is great. Her body is healing itself; she is beating this! Felicia says, “yeah, I’m coming back, Baby.”

Mass gives one last pitch to Brooke. She BELONGS with Ridge. He’s the man she returns to time after time, and this time is no exception. But Brooke states, “I AM IN LOVE WITH NICK!” Mass claims she will destroy him. And he’s warning her……She tells him she is warning him if she is right, and Nick finds proof that Massimo framed his mother….”this dynasty you think you are building is going to crumble before your very eyes. Because Nick is never, ever going to forgive you!”

Nick follows the noise and he opens an office and immediately is relieved. He asks Megan what is she doing there?
