In San Cristobal, Olivia is finally able to reach Alan back in Springfield to
help her out of another mess. She tells him that she doesn't want to get
involved with the mob to launder money through the Harbor project. She is
very anxious and scared and begs Alan to help her find a way out. She
finishes her call just before Josh comes up behind her. Josh asks Olivia
what she is thinking about she tells him she is worried she might lose him.
Josh reassures her that she will ever lose him. He makes a suggestion
that they play hooky from work and go scuba diving on a nearby island to
forget about their troubles. Olivia agrees and they decide to leave
Meanwhile at company, Danny's friends and family gather to
celebrate getting the goods on Gus. Ors tells Danny he isn't home free yet
because the judge may decide to go ahead with the trial or he may declare a
mistrial and the case would go to trial again. Everyone gathered remains
positive that things will work out just fine. Danny thanks Harley for
everything she did to help him. Everyone toasts Harley. Danny asks Tony
"are you keeping your nose clean" Tony gets very defensive and accuses Danny
of not trusting him. Tony lies and says he isn't doing anything wrong.
Danny wants him to tell him if the Sandoval's or the Machados come sniffing
around because he doesn't want them anywhere near the club. Ray notices
Tony's reaction and after Tony leaves he confides in Danny and Michelle that
he is worried that Tony may want to get back in the family business.
Meanwhile in San Cristobal, Cassie and Reva inform Richard that they
suspect Mr. Vreeland is involved in something shady concerning the harbor
project. Richard says they must be very careful and make sure they have
solid evidence before they accuse the Presidential candidate. Richard
leaves to talk to Dax and Cassie and Reva try to come up with a way to
connect Petter Vreeland and Olivia with the less then legitimate harbor
project. Dax informs Richard that Peter Vreeland is having great success
with television ads and he is gaining popularity with the people. Dax
suggests that Richard use his popularity with the council to get the
election postponed until they can come up with a strategy to defeat
Vreeland. Richard angrily refuses because it wouldn't be democratic.
Cassie gets a call from Scarface (Vreeland flunky) because he wants to set
up a meeting to talk about Vreeland's involvement with the Harbor project.
After Cassie hangs up the phone Richard comes in and tells Cassie that from
now on she and Reva must follow the rules when handling this investigation.
Since the Shane women have never been known to follow the rules they decide
to meet with Scarface.

tells Frank that she is disillusioned with what happened in court today.
Harley is sympathetic to Gus and what he went through and why he felt he
had to get justice. Harley heads home. Rick Buzz and Frank may try to come
after Harley because of what she did to bring him down. They start planning
ways to protect her until Holly tells them to leave Harley alone because she
is perfectly capable of taking care of herself.

and Olivia talk Olivia thinks Sam might be good for Marah because she seems
happy for the firs time in a long time.
At inferno, Tony vents his
anger over his situation with his family at Romeo. Romeo says the reason he
is so angry and confused is because he wants to run after Marah. Tony says
he doesn't care about Marah anymore but he can't stop thinking about her.

through with this plan because once he is in the family business he can't
