Langston demanded to know why Tess was still at Ford's and not at St. Ann's. "My hands are tied here," Ford explained, adding that having access to Ryder's trust fund would help him stay in his apartment and take care of his son. Langston was upset that it came down to money, but Ford insisted he couldn't make Langston responsible for taking care of Ryder and Tess. Langston argued that she didn't want to be his mistress. "We're done," she concluded, then wished him the best and headed out.
Viki was surprised to find Dorian in her living room. Dorian said she'd "had it out" with Charlie about not being at Viki's side. She didn't want to burden Charlie with family problems, Viki explained, but Dorian suggested maybe Charlie wants to feel needed. As Tess snuck into Llanfair, Dorian hinted that Charlie might go somewhere else. Viki insisted she trusted Charlie. "But should you?" Dorian asked cryptically. Tess crept upstairs and grabbed some jewels she planned to sell, but dropped one on her way out of Llanfair.
Charlie and Echo stopped their passionate kiss to discuss Dorian's ultimatum. Echo suggested that Charlie leave Viki. "Viki is going through hell," Charlie stammered. Echo didn't want to see Charlie if they couldn't be together. "I can't just pretend," she said through tears. Charlie apologized and left.

Charlie told Dorian that he had broken things off with Echo, as Tess listened in. Then she tailed Charlie to Echo's door, where he said he lied to Dorian, and pulled Echo into a kiss! "I can't let you go," he said as he grabbed her. Tess watched with a smile.
Téa, Natalie, Viki and Dani converged in the waiting room. Natalie explained that there'd been a shooting at Rodi's parking lot.
Brody met John at the site of the shooting. They found evidence that one of John's bullets might have hit someone. Seconds later, viewers saw that Tomas had been shot.

The doctor told them Todd's fate all depends on what happens in the OR. Dani wept when she saw Todd's condition, then she and Téa covered him in a blanket to warm him up.

Tomas broke the news that Todd was in the hospital. A frantic Blair contacted Starr on James' phone, then she and Starr rushed to Todd's side. Téa assured Blair and Starr that John would get the man who shot Todd. Tomas looked nervous. Blair had some words for Todd before he went into the OR.
Bo got a text from Rex; it said "room 606 hurry." Bo rushed out of Alex's room and he and Rex broke into the room 606, to find David in bed between two women. "Hi Pa," he said with an impish grin.
Nigel quit his job but when Clint wouldn't accept his resignation, he poured his bossanother bourbon.

Empty beer bottles in front of him, John remembered a conversation with Natalie. Kelly showed up and John told her Todd was in surgery. Brody entered Rodi's to say there would be a report on his desk in the morning. John suggested Brody go home to Natalie and "your kid." Brody apologized for sleeping with Natalie, then dared John to hit him. After Kelly convinced Brody to leave, she asked John how long he'd be wallowing in booze. If he wanted to turn into a bitter old drunk that was his prerogative, she shrugged. John declared he was done and headed out to solve the Todd shooting case.
While Natalie spent some time with Liam, Viki assured her daughter she would always be there for her. "You made a mistake," Viki said, reminding Nat that John was hurting, and might just find his way back to her. Natalie thought he had found his way to Kelly. "He doesn't want me," she said sadly. Viki wondered if things were awkward with Brody coming by to be with Liam, but Natalie pointed out he was doing the right thing.
Starr told James she was worried about security for her dad at the hospital. Tomas tried to attend to his own wounds. Blair asked him what he was doing, and vowed to make whoever shot Todd pay.
Determined to continue his torment, Jack "apologized" to Shane and invited him over to come over and play some Zbox with Beth and Brad. When Shane arrived, Brad offered him a pill, which Shane said might interfere with his inhaler. Brad wanted an uncomfortable Shane to prove his coolness with Beth.
Starr tried to call Jack but he wasn't answering. Blair grabbed Todd's phone and reached Jack to inform him his father was in surgery. "Jack was stunned and snapped at Shane. "Get out. I don't want your germs on me," he yelled, ordering his friends out. Gigi was frantic, wondering where Shane had been. "Don't give me stupid advice," he said angrily as he rushed upstairs.
Tess was thrilled that Todd was shot because the crisis would rattle Téa's composure as she represented Viki in court. After getting Tess to dress more appropriately for the proceedings, Ford hoped that nothing would go wrong.

Ford left a message telling Langston that he still loves her. A weepy Langston entered Dorian's room. "I broke up with Ford," she sobbed, explaining, "Ford chose his baby over me."

As Joey read Kelly's cover story on Todd's shooting, Clint wondered if Joey thought he had killed Eddie. Rama paid Joey a visit and hinted that she knew a lot about Aubrey's past. She was poised to show Joey a photo of Aubrey In their school yearbook, but Aubrey showed up in the nick in the time. Afterward, Rama collected money from Aubrey, and Aubrey reluctantly informed her new husband that she had invited Rama to live with them.
David couldn't believe Bo (Pa!) was at the foot of his bed. "I came, son," Bo said with a smile. Bo and David didn't believe anything Alex said as she tried to explain. When Rex admitted that he had known about David's fate for months, David's face fell. As he went after Rex, Bo watched, then pulled David off of Rex and directed him to save that rage for Clint.
David called Dorian. "I love you. I did not walk out on you," he said. "It's all Clint's fault." Dorian yelled at David, not believing a word he said. Cutter knocked at Dorian's door with a gift, and Dorian told David she had moved on with another man before hanging up.
Rex told David that Dorian hadn't been with anyone since David disappeared. David didn't want anything from Rex. David sneered when Rex told David he was a Buchanan. Bo confirmed Rex's claim. Rex wondered if they could make the charges against Clint stick.
Dorian prepared to burn a photo of David in front of Cutter. "Lust in to dust," she said gleefully. Dorian went to defriend David but grew hysterical as she read that David was in a relationship with Alex Olanov. Cutter tried to get her to remember she was over David, and shouldn't care what he does. Dorian began to kiss Cutter when David charged into her bedroom and said "Dorian!"
In the courtroom, Tess pretended to be Jess. Tess said that Ryder's last name was Ford. The judge asked why the grandparents were asking for custody. Viki said that young woman was not her daughter. Nora explained DID to the judge. The judge wanted to speak to Mrs. Ford who took the stand. Tess said that her parents were suing to punish her for marrying "the man I love." She explained that the court that her family had wanted her to marry Brody.

Viki took the stand. Tess hinted that there was something going on between Charlie and Echo. Tess suggested Viki talk to Dorian about it.
Clint didn't think the judge would give the baby to the Fords. Nora told Clint she'd work hard to get him in jail once Viki had custody of the baby.
Starr, Dani and Téa tried to stay calm while Todd was in surgery. Jack and Blair entered the waiting area and Jack immediately asked "Did dad die?" The doctor said he was in a coma. The doctor hoped that the family visit would get Todd out of the coma. Téa went in to see Todd. Dani and Jack argued. Starr told him to sit down and shut up.
"Don't you dare die on me," Téa said to Todd firmly. Téa tried to get Todd to wake up by telling him stories about Dani having sex and Starr being pregnant again.
