Edmund denies that he has done this.  Edmund defers to Beth and allows her to ask him to leave the room. Philip then starts in on her. have you forgotten all the things Edmund has done; are you blind??? She says arenít you here to talk about the children? Fine. He tells Beth that he allowed them reluctantly to come down because there would be so many people there to help run interference between Edmund and Beth. but where does he find Beth??? In Edmundís arms. Beth tells him thatís between her and Edmund and has nothing to do with the children. Beth tells him she got the messages Philip sent but had she known he was in such a state she would have called. now that youíve said what you have to say GO HOME!!!

Ray talks to Danny telling him he brought Michelle to the club. telling him Michelle hasnít given up on him. Ray asks him why he canít just give into the love he has for her?? He has seen Danny overcome such hardships, he can come back from this. Danny just keeps telling him heís not giving in, he doesnít understand, itís not about love. Heís not going to listen to anything Danny says until he starts making sense. at this Danny responds, then I guess Iím going to have to settle this once and for all. with Michelle. He heads into the club and asks Michelle what sheís doing here? She answers she just came to see him. he tells her she should be at home sleeping or someplace without so much smoke.

Lizzie asks how long Philip is staying and asks if he can have the room next to hers. Lizzie tells him sheís having so much fun. ĒItís the best, well it would be the best if Jim was here. Ē Lizzie tells Philip Edmund will be giving her a riding lesson the next day and asks if he will come. She goes on and on about how great Edmund is . Beth is visibly steamed at Philip.  When Lizzie asks about Zack and Harley he tells her he just popped down for a quick visit, she adds AND to take care of mommy well donít worry daddy, we are all taking great care of mommy especially Edmund. Philip sends her back off to bed . Edmund wishes her goodnight. He turns to Philip telling him now that your paternal instinct has been satisfied. go home. 

Back at Harleyís Buzz has convinced her to dance through her pain. Frank, Harley and Buzz dance around the couch. Rick tells Frank he wishes he was some kind of ethnic thing like Greek or Italian. They pull him up off the couch to dance with them. As Rick and Harley dance frank and Buzz cheer them on Buzz says- dance youíre free. She stumbles (a little tipsy) and says . I donít feel free, but tries to smile bravely through it.

Danny confronts the 2 shady guys, he knows who they are Johnny Muchadoís guys.  He tells them that Infierno is now off limits, send that message to your boss. He tells Michelle if she sees them to call him and tells them to stay away from Michelle. They leave, Danny walks away and Michelle is visibly shaken. Danny goes back into the club, tells May to put Tony in charge and thanks May for the heads up. he goes back to Michelle. Danny tells Michelle he will accompany her back to the house and he and ray will sleepover to protect her. he thinks Muchado is just messing with him but better safe than sorry. 

Buzz and Frank pass out on the couch. Harley talks to Rick telling him she thinks she should leave for a little while, because if sheís there when Philip comes back sheís going to want to shoot him and that wouldnít be good for Zack to see.  She offers Rick another drink he says no thanks and passes out on the other couch. she covers the men with a blanket and wonders aloud what will happen next.

Philip asks Edmund why he wants Philip to go so badly, maybe his intentions are not honorable. Edmund tells him no itís just that I want Beth to have as little stress as possible, unlike you. Edmund tells Philip that it is up to Beth whether or not he stays on the island Philip tells him he will stay as long as he damn well pleases. Edmund responds that the moment Beth tells him she wants Philip out, he will have Philip thrown off the island, but in his opinion, he should be consulting a marriage counselor and getting some help for his marriage to Harley. it seems that every time things start to go badly between you and Harley, you switch your attentions to Beth. Jim was far too tolerant of it. Philip responds with how dare he bring up Jimís name. Jim despised him. Edmund corrects him telling him they had come to an understanding the week before he died, but thatís neither here nor there. .Jim was a very nice man. too nice when it came to your interference. be warned--I am not Jim and if you push me. I will push back
