Harley says they will go someplace and talk. Cassie and Richard continue to enjoy their happy reunion. They decide to leave the barbecue early. Danny tells Tony he doesn't want him to go to the trial tomorrow. He feels, given Tony's strong feelings towards Gus, it would be better if he stayed away from the trial. Tony reluctantly agrees and says that doesn't mean that he has stopped hating that Fed.
At the Spaulding mansion, Lillian says she feels responsible for what happened to Beth. Since, she brought Beth's stepfather Bradley into their lives all those years ago.

Richard and Cassie head towards the door but they are stopped by Olivia who points out the good that the harbor project can bring to San Cristobal and pleads with Richard not to abandon it because Edmund approved of the idea. Richard says that he thinks it is an excellent idea and had no intention of abandoning it. Richard asks Josh to be in charge of the project and Josh agrees. Noah and Reva see that Cassie and Richard have left early and decide to do the same thing. Phillip and Harley begin a very intense and heated argument.

He is also angry at Rick because his best friend kept this a secret from him. Phillip says "I can't believe you and Rick kept this a secret from me all this time." Harley says "that's not all" and begins to tell him the rest of the story but Phillip continues to go on about how hurt he is and Harley gets angry at him for only thinking of himself so she doesn't tell him that he is not the baby's father. Rick walks in and tells Phillip to lay off Harley . Harley walks off and Phillip lets Rick have it for not telling him about his baby. At the Spaulding mansion Beth remembers moments with Edmund and cries.
