Ryan and Greenlee discussed Emma, who was continuing to give Greens a hard time. Ryan's man called to update him on Ricky's whereabouts. Ryan took off, and Greenlee realized her wallet was gone, then got a call about Emma. At ConFusion, Madison counseled Emma, who admitted she missed her mom. Madison gave Emma a muffin. Greenlee arrived and learned that Emma stole Greenlee's wallet and had called a cab to take her to her mother. Greens asked Emma to wait in the hall and chewed out Madison. Greenlee accused Madison of using Emma to get to Ryan. Madison countered that Greenlee was the one who had been keeping secrets.
JR approached Marissa at ConFusion; she was being interviewed by Agent Trumbull about Tad and Cara. JR didn't appreciate Trumbull's attitude.
Opal talked to Ricky about Erica's disappearance. He raved to Opal about Kendall, adding that the feelings were mutual on Kendall's part and they were going to take things slow. After their talk, Ryan met with Opal and quizzed him about Ricky.
Kendall met with Griffin, who reminded her to be civil if they were going to work together. Griff gave her the rundown on the electronic bugging equipment. After initially resisting, Kendall allowed Griffin to wire her up, giggling as he did it. Ryan arrived and asked if Kendall was ready to go. Griff tested the equipment and everything checked out.
JR informed Scott that a tree fell onto the gatehouse and decimated it. Scott was furious that JR wanted to tear it down, considering that it was once Stuart's studio.... Marissa went to the mansion and was moved by a conversation JR was having with AJ. She told JR that she was going to temporarily move back into the mansion. Meanwhile, Scott informed Madison about his blow-up with JR. She encouraged him to fix the gatehouse. He decided to do so. Scott went back to the mansion and JR told him that Marissa was moving back in. Scott told JR that he was going to rebuild the gatehouse, and Marissa pledged her help.
At Fusion, Greens had a frank talk with Emma about her lying. Emma told Greens that her mommy had told her not to trust her, and "Daddy should have never married you."
Griffin and Ryan discussed Kendall's hardheadedness. Griff thanked Ryan for believing in his innocence. Griff listened in as Ricky showed up at Kendall's and told the boys that they would be seeing a lot more of him. "Are you going to be our new daddy?" chirped Spike. Kendall deflected the situation and sent the boys off to Bianca's. Ricky pressed Kendall to let him spend time with the boys. He then said he was taking her somewhere, just the two of them. She feigned a smile.
Ryan went to Fusion and kissed Greenlee passionately. He told Greens that Ricky may have killed the reverend who preceded him. Then, he got down on one knee and told Greenlee that he wanted to marry her again. She flashed back to Madison and Emma dissing her, then pondered her answer.

Trying to ignore her guilty conscience, Greenlee accepted Ryan's proposal. Greens told Ryan about Emma's attempt to go to Oak Haven. Ryan told Greens that he was due at the hospital for Madison's ultrasound.
David and Liza had another sweaty sack session. David was confident that he'd be back to practicing medicine soon. Liza took offense when she felt that David didn't want to be seen in public with her. He did end up joining her at Krystal's and apologized for hurting her feelings. She scoffed that he had a big ego. David offered to give her updates on whatever info he gets on the Hubbards from working with Angie.
Brot saw Jesse and Angie with Lucy at the hospital for a check-up and advised Jesse to act more like the baby is his. Maya showed up and asked for Dr. Hubbard. Madison stopped by for a check-up and caught up with Frankie. Frankie rooted for Madison to reveal to Ryan that Greenlee knew Mad was pregnant. Frankie saw Maya and she blasted him for calling to check up on her. She softened when Frankie said he simply cared about her well-being. Jesse approached and Frankie introduced him to Maya. Jesse told Brot that he can't shake the image of Ellie's dead body. Meanwhile, Ryan got a chewing-out from Frankie for being late to Madison's ob/gyn appointment. Suddenly, Angie almost fell while holding Lucy. Jesse and Brot tried to console Angie.
Kendall was packing when Griffin came by to try to talk her out of going out of town with Ricky. Kendall told Griff that she planned to relocate the date to Ricky's place to try to dig for info. Griff made his concern for Kendall very clear. He put the wire in her ear and she promised not to remove it, and to be careful. Greens stopped by and asked Kendall for advice about the secret she was keeping from Ryan. Greens was thinking about coming clean and Kendall supported the idea.
Ricky gazed creepily at a picture of Zach, Kendall and the boys, then went to her house. Kendall assured Greens that she would be fine and was wearing a wire. Greens left and Kendall tried to deflect Ricky's attempt to get intimate. She then tried to coax him to take her to a public place. Ricky disclosed that he wanted to take her out of town and she explained that she couldn't because of the boys. She tried to get him to take her to his place but he claimed it was too messy.
Griffin went back to the safe house and chased a young boy who was rifling through his stuff. Listening in on Kendall, Griff called to demand that she reschedule. Kendall claimed that the call was from Spike's sitter and that he was refusing to eat without her there. Ricky agreed to reschedule.
David and Greenlee had an encounter at ConFusion. David told Greens that Ryan would never love her the way he does, flaws and all.
Ryan found out from Madison's doctor that Greenlee had known about Mad's pregnancy since before Christmas. Ryan reeled from the realization that Greens had deceived him. He went into Madison's room and asked her to confirm that Greens had lied to him.

Erica's captor told her that Jack had sent her a video message. The captor showed it to Erica on the condition that she ate something. Erica watched the video, then faked a collapse. Before long, a cloaked figure stood over her.
Scott reeled as Madison reluctantly confirmed that Greenlee knew about the baby and didn't tell him. Mad tried to defend Greens but Ryan remained livid.
Greenlee told Scott that she was going to tell Ryan the truth. Scott left and Ryan arrived. Greens told Ryan that there was something she needed to tell him before they renewed their vows. Ryan revealed that he knew she had lied to him about the baby. Ryan was furious and she tried to explain herself. Ryan was unmoved by her rationale. He told her that they would not be able to get past this.
Opal was upset when she found Krystal at Jack's. Krystal denied that she was throwing herself at Jack. Jack entered and reported that Erica had received his video but hadn't responded. Later, at Krystal's, Jack told Krystal that there was still no word from La Kane.
At home, Angie tried to get Jesse to talk to him about what was clearly bugging him. He assured her that he was okay. Jake and Amanda came by. Jake and Jesse left and Amanda told Angie that she can't wait to have another baby. Angie pointed out that Jake had made it clear that he didn't want another baby right now. Angie urged Amanda not to try to conceive before Jake was ready.
Tad and Cara played with the girls at the park. Tad got a call that Mackenzie (the little girl with cancer) was back in the hospital. Cara overheard and blasted Tad for planning not to tell her about Mackenzie's condition. Cara went to the hospital; Jake spotted her and chastised her for being there. Jake admitted that Mackenzie was out of remission.
Scott went to see Madison after her appointment. Mad told him that Ryan had found out about Greenlee's deception. The doctor entered and Madison asked if Scott could be present when the baby was born. He was greatly moved. Back at the apartment, Mad assured Scott that she didn't want Ryan; she wanted him. He smiled. Scott told Madison that he wanted her, too. They kissed all the way to the bed....
Liza and David dined together and talked about their lives. Jesse entered and Liza read him the riot act for not finding Griffin. Harsh words were exchanged. Jesse paid a visit to baby Ellie's grave. Liza spied him sitting on a bench and paused.

Ryan was decimated by Greenlee's lies. Greenlee then confessed that she was responsible for the out of town job offer Madison received. Ryan realized that Greens worked for Scott's release so he would keep Madison at bay and away from Ryan. Greenlee admitted it was true. "Madison needed someone," said Greens. "I gave her Scott." Greenlee added that keeping the pregnancy secret was killing her but Ryan wasn't sympathetic. "Let's start over," Greenlee pleaded. Ryan left his wedding vows on the table and walked out.
Madison told Scott that she wanted to make love. After, they basked in the afterglow. Madison assured Scott he'd be a part of her baby's life, adding that she couldn't believe Greenlee wanted to build a life with someone based on lies. The couple's afterglow was interrupted by Ryan's arrival. Ryan asked to speak to Madison privately but Mad said that Scott already knew about Greenlee, and Ryan could say anything he wanted to in front of him. Mad then told Ryan that she wanted Scott to be in the birthing room with them. Ryan gave Scott a knowing look as he subtly questioned Scott's loyalty.
As Jesse sat on a bench mourning his baby, Liza walked by and apologized for her earlier behavior. She noticed he was distraught and asked if everything was okay. Jesse called her an attack dog and walked off. David joined Liza and planted a big wet kiss on her. David wondered why Liza was preoccupied. She suspected something was going on with Jesse but didn't know what. She and David discussed the possibilities.
Bianca met Jack, who said he got a note from Erica but didn't open it, because he didn't think he'd like what she had to say. Bianca said she thought it would be good news. Jack read the note and, calling Erica's words merely "polite," he was furious that she offered no excuse for her disappearing act. Bianca spotted a nearby tabloid which lambasted all the Kane women. As angry as Bianca was with the story, she thought that it just might be the thing to lure Erica back to Pine Valley.
As the hooded figure loomed over Erica, she leapt up and grabbed the mystery person's arm. Erica pulled the hood off, and realized the man before her was not her kidnapper when the voice came again from behind the mirror. The man drugged Erica and she passed out. Later, Erica came to and chastised her captor for violating her sobriety. Her captor apologized. Erica vowed to escape and make her captor pay. Erica was unaware she was being recorded. When Erica stayed silent, her captor, who we saw had red painted fingernails, offered to bring Erica something she wanted, stating that he/she "owed her." Erica talked her captor into going back to her place to get some clothing and some books. Erica had secretly hidden a phone in a hollowed-out book. Later, the kidnapper quickly packed up Erica's stuff, including the book with the phone in it.
David showed up at ConFusion and Greenlee ordered him to leave. David wondered what Greens had done to invoke Ryan's anger at her. "Leave me alone!" Greenlee barked.
Jesse returned to Angie and the sleeping baby. He told Angie that Liza was giving him headaches. Angie supported her man, stating that Jesse's integrity spoke for itself. Jesse got a baby book in Braille for Angie. She was moved. Meanwhile, Liza tried to get Brot to talk to her about Jesse but he stonewalled her, deepening Liza's suspicions. David met up with Liza in the park and she picked up on the fact that he was in such a good mood, and it clearly had to do with Greenlee.

Greenlee flashed back to her blow-up with Ryan. Randi entered the Fusion office and a snappy Greens told her to leave.
At Madison's, Mad insisted to Ryan that she trusts Scott. Ryan gave Scott the chance to come clean but he stayed mum. Ryan left after warning Scott not to hurt Madison. Scott said he had to run to the hospital. Greens called Mad and demanded that she come to the office. Greens ignored a call from Scott. Mad showed up and Greens blasted her for selling her out to Ryan. Mad defended herself, noting that it was Dr. Cantor who spilled the beans. Greens accused Mad of wanting Ryan back.
Scott showed up at Ryan's. Scott told Ryan that he genuinely care about Madison. Ryan told Scott that he wouldn't tell Mad about his deal with Greenlee then ushered Scott out. Greens came home and told Ryan she was going to fight for them. Ryan told her that he wasn't ready to forgive and forget. Back at their place, Madison told Scott about her encounter with Greenlee. Scott told Mad that they needed to talk about Ryan, the baby, "all of it." Mad wanted to set the drama aside, so Scott didn't come clean.
Erica hoped that getting her secret cell phone would get her back to Jack. Meanwhile, Erica's captor packed up her stuff but dropped a scarf when she had to hide upon Bianca and Jack entering. Jack sensed that someone had been there. Jack found the scarf. He was forlorn; Binks tried to comfort him. After they left with Jack's stuff, the captor emerged and bolted. Jack and Binks went to Krystal's. Jack told the women that someone had been in Erica's bedroom. Bianca didn't believe that Erica had been back. They rushed back to the penthouse and the scarf was gone.
Ricky made some adjustments to his computer. Kendall and Griffin bickered about her determination to get into Ricky's room. Ricky called and Kendall said she was free to meet him now. When Griffin tried to stop her from leaving, Kendall fought back. Kendall apologized and claimed that she was going to bring Jack along with her to Ricky's room. She pretended to call Jack. Kendall went to the yacht club and tried to convince Griff that Jack was with her, but he knew better. Kendall yanked the earpiece out and went into Ricky's room. Griff panicked and headed out to try to rescue Kendall. Ricky left to get champagne and Kendall started digging around the room. She found Ricky's computer and tried to figure out the password. She figured it out ("Kendall"), but Ricky's return stopped her from finding anything. Ricky started kissing her.
When the captor returned, she told Erica that Jack and Bianca had been at her apartment. The captor showed Erica the tabloid. Erica was livid. "I can't help you," said the captor. Erica tried to figure out her captor's motives and put some boxes in front of one of the camera to block the captor's view. Erica hungrily eyed her secret cell phone.
