Phyllis Rose was back on air with ACCESS LLANVIEW and stories on the Buchanans, Kassandra Kavanaugh and Cristian Vega.
Cristian was brought into the precinct with Kassandra Kavanaugh after getting into an argument with someone at the gym. After he and Kassandra were released, she thanked him with a kiss... and her personal number.
Clint interrupted Rama viewing Phyllis' report. Clint wondered if Rama had something on Aubrey "and her supposed brother." After Rama denied it, Clint invited her to work with him. Rama said no and accused Clint of killing Eddie Ford.
Dorian wondered if David was going to leave her at the altar again. David explained he'd just gotten a call from his agent about an offer to play himself in a movie about his life. "You are leaving me for a part in a movie," Dorian said sadly. David insisted he was just taking a job and he would marry her soon. "This plan just doesn't work for me," she said, and insisted that David marry her right then. Bo joined Dorian, David and Viki in the judge's chamber and watched as the happy couple exchanged vows. A beaming Viki and Bo congratulated the newlweds, though Bo looked sickly when Dorian called him "Pa."
Nora couldn't remember who she saw at the Minute Man. "We need hard evidence," Bo said.
Rex and Rick watched the videotape and saw Clint in the background. "My father's a murderer," Rex murmured. Rick refused to share the footage until Rex explained he needed the DVD to repair his relationship with Bo. He finally got the incriminating tape and showed it to Bo and Nora.
Cutter and Tess began kissing when all of a sudden Jessica came out. Horrified to see what she was wearing, Jessica wondered what Tess had been up to. "Tess is a symptom," she said as she opened the door and fell into Brody's arms. Alarmed to learn that Tess had been out for over a month, Jessica also found out that her baby, Ryder, was with Ford. Brody filled her in about marrying and Ford, and the joint control Ford/Tess would have over Ryder's trust fund. Jessica was determined to get her son back.
Ford was happy when Langston showed up at Ford's door, thinking it meant they could fix things. But Langston returned his Christmas gift to her. "I can't keep this," she said, adding that the money could be better used for diapers and formula. Noting that Ford had changed for the better since Ryder had come into his life, a tearful Langston left his apartment. Later, Brody and Jessica opened the door to Ford's apartment, determined to take Ryder away. Meanwhile, Bo arrested Clint for the murder of Eddie Ford.

When Jessica demanded to see her baby, Ford said that Ryder needs his father, too. "I want the right to love my son," Ford insisted. Jessica begged him to let her take care of her son and wept tears of joy when Ford handed over Ryder. But Jess wouldn't be taking their son anywhere, he added. As Ford filled a wide-eyed Jessica in on Brody's romp with Natalie, Tess returned and handed Ryder back to Ford. A frantic Brody tried to get Jessica to fight her way back to them, to no avail. Tess pushed Brody out the door. "She is not coming back, ever," Tess declared.
Blair told John she had walked in on Tomas in Todd's room. Both thought it was kind of weird. When John suggested Blair stay away from Tomas, Blair admitted she should have taken his advice about Elijah Clarke. She showed him the photo of Todd and Blair from their wedding day, then left the precinct.
Tomas sat at the piano and tickled the ivories. Dani interrupted him and found out her uncle was a composer, a painter and a black belt. Tomas said he thought faith could make miracles happen. Dani wept as she remembered Tea's death. "Get your hands off that child," Blair barked when she saw them. Dani told Blair about Shane's missing inhaler and wondered if Jack had taken it. Blair didn't think that was possible.
"Dad I need to tell you something," Jack told an unconscious father in the hospital. "I did something really bad." Starr and James overheard and wondered what Jack had done. When Jack hinted that it had something to do with Dani, Starr reminded him that she was their half-sister. When Jack told James to get out, Starr was horrified by her brother's behavior. Jack was also rude to Shaun, and sat sadly outside his father's hospital room. Nate emailed James that there was a job at the Buenos Dias. He looked stricken when Deanna Forbes friended him.
Deanna jumped to the conclusion that James and Starr had a baby together. She rushed out and ran into Rick at the Minuteman Motel. Rick smooth-talked that said she was obviously a model. Upon learning that Deanna planned to go back home to Dayton, Ohio, Rick suggested to stick around; there might be a job opportunity. Deanna returned to her room with renewed hope about the future and her relationship with James.
Bo arrested Clint, who reminded his baby brother that he needed evidence. Clint was caught on camera, in the background of an adult film, Bo reported. Clint swore he didn't kill Eddie Ford. Filled in on the situation by John, Natalie wondered how long Clint had been a suspect. So she wasn't the only keeping secrets "on our wedding day," Nat observed. "They are two totally different situations," John insisted, and stormed off.

At the diner, Langston told Starr she was glad that she had ended things with Ford, but really misses him. Ford walked into the diner to fetch breakfast for Tess, and asked Langston how she was doing; she said okay, and he left.
Tess charged into the Ford apartment with a newspaper. "Looks like my daddy killed your daddy. Awkward," she gloated, waving the front page. James and Ford agreed that Clint was a real SOB. James was annoyed by his new sister-in-law's antics. Deanna showed up at the Fords' door, disappointed that James hadn't accepted her friend request right away. James was a real pain in the neck, said Tess, suggesting Deanna shouldn't expect much from James. Besides, James is into Starr Manning, Tess added.
Angry that Brody had found Tess in Cutter's room, Joey grabbed Cutter. Aubrey was angry, too. "Tess just showed up," Cutter stammered, but agreed to call Joey if Tess showed up again. Aubrey accused Cutter of lying to her. "So what if I did?" he snarked. Aubrey wondered why Cutter was playing with fire. Cutter accused Aubrey of thinking about Joey when she was having sex with him.
Rick came to Deanna's room with an extra coffee. Deanna lamented that she couldn't fix things with James. Rick assured her that guys would be falling all over her, but Deanna just asked him to leave her alone. Rick promised Deanna he'd make her a star.
Marty showed up at Llanfair, alarming Natalie. She'd been discharged, Marty explained. "I remember everything I did," she said, and apologized. "I know who Liam's parents really are," Marty added. Natalie was upset to learn that John had visited Marty at St., then shocked to find out that John had obtain her release. When Brody suggested that Marty leave, she wished them the best.
Kelly woke up in bed with John and askedhim if he wanted to get some breakfast. She started to discuss their relationship. "Sometimes breakfast is just breakfast," he said dryly. Kelly said she was just figuring out the lines in their relationship. They had started to kiss again, when Natalie barged in demanding to know why john helped Marty get out of St. Ann's. Kelly headed out.
Kelly showed up at Joey and Aubrey's and apologized about the cover story. Kelly offered to help Joey however she could, but Aubrey assured she could take care of her husband. Cutter invited Tess to come over. Ford got a call with news that the judge would be ruling on Ryder's custody today.

Starr asked James about Deanna, saying she thought she'd seen her at the diner. Gigi backed up Starr's assertion, adding that Deanna had been toting a "funky laptop," and she could tell Deanna was broke and bummed out. After Starr left to drive Jack to the hospital, James asked Gigi if she knew where Deanna was staying. Gigi thought she might be at the Minuteman. Jack went there and knocked on her door
Rick assured Deanna he'd make her a star, but Deanna wasn't interested in being in a porn flick. Rick said he pays cash. Deanna took a call from the motel manager, and Rick gave her some money. "I have the answer," he said.
Shane told Jack that he wasn't his enemy said he understood that Jack was upset about his dad. Shane's gesture only infuriated Jack, who stepped up his abuse by enlisting his buddies to snatch Shane's clothes from the locker room. Then Jack yanked his towel off in front of a group of kids. "I hate all of you," shouted a humiliated Shane, and headed back to the dressing room. Starr walked in and demanded to know what was going on. Just an April Fool's joke, shrugged Jack.
Echo suggested to Charlie that they go out the park in a neighboring town. "We could pretend we are on a date," Echo said cautiously. Charlie told her his wife needs him. Echo wondered what would happen to her if Charlie ended up having to raise Ryder with Viki. On his way out Charlie ran into Rex, who was there to talk about Shane. "He's changed and I'm worried about him," Rex told a worried Echo, telling her about the money Shane "stole," the inhaler he "threw away," and the accusations that he was bullying other kids. "Your son is not a bully — he's a victim," Echo finally admitted, describing the cruel things she'd found on Shane's myspace page. Rex was incredulous, and found Shane's myspace page on Echo's computer. Stunned by the vicious remarks that were there, Rex ran out to find Jack Manning. When he and Gigi tracked him down at school, they shoved him against a wall.
Viki visited Clint in prison to ask him for a signature so she could try to get custody of Ryder on her own. "I am not a murderer," Clint insisted. "Things aren't always what they seem." Bo told Clint he was ready to offer him a deal, but he'd have to plead guilty. "What's in it for me?" Clint asked. It would save his children from having to watch him go through a trial, Bo replied. No deal, scoffed Clint, who said he didn't think there was any evidence proving he shot Eddie.
At the courthouse, Ford hoped he would get custody of his son now that Clint is in jail. Nora was nagged by something about the night of Eddie's murder. Viki charged in with the document saying that Clint gave up his request for custody of Ryder, and insisted she would be able to take care of an infant by herself. Charlie showed up to promise he'd help, too. Tess looked at the photo of Charlie and Echo kissing on her Blackberry. "I'll be there for him," Charlie vowed. Tess rose. "I have something to say," she said with a sly smile. "Charlie's a liar and a cheat and my mother is too far gone to know what the drunken bum is doing to her." Charlie reminded everyone he was sober. Tess' lawyer told her to be quiet. After court was adjourned, Tess sent Viki the photo of Echo and Charlie kissing. While Charlie was at Echo's telling her he "couldn't do this anymore," Viki opened Tess's message and saw the photo of Charlie and Echo kissing.

Rex shoved Jack up against the wall and accused him of setting up Shane. "I saw the vicious crack you posted," Rex snarled. "What is wrong with you?" a horrified Starr asked, then remembered seeing Shane naked. "It was an April Fools joke," Jack insisted. "What did he ever do to you?" Starr demanded to know. After Jack left, he ran into a friend and told him to get rid of the video of naked Shane. "Be a Manning," his friend urged him ...so Jack posted the video and photos on his myspace.
A devastated Shane came home and relived the torture in his mind. He was relieved to see no new posts. But after a visit from Viki, Shane checked his computer again and saw that the video had been posted. Rex and Gigi came home to find a note that said, "I'm sorry." Gigi fell apart in Rex's arms.
Porn producer Rick assured Deanna that the guys would love her. When Deanna had a change of heart and tried to leave, Rick reminded her she needed money. Looking for Deanna, James walked onto the scene. Rick tried to convince Deanna to keep going, but she left with James, thanking him for rescuing him. James was horrified to hear that she had come to his apartment; she was relieved that the baby wasn't James's and pulled him into a kiss.
Fresh from the custody hearing, Charlie told Echo he was going to tell Viki the truth about their affair; he was torn by guilt and felt awful about cheating on Viki. He added that he had to stick by Viki until the custody thing is settled — but he couldn't imagine his life without Echo in it, and the two kissed. Meanwhile, Viki was stunned to see the photo of Echo and Charlie kissing. Later, as Charlie and Viki cuddled after making love Viki opened the door and caught them in bed!
At the courthouse, Clint insisted to Bo that he wasn't guilty. Nora recalled being outside Eddie's door the night of the murder, then walking into the room. She fainted when she remembered something else. When she regained consciousness, she assured her worried husband she was fine. Nora didn't really want to know who was in that room, Clint said cryptically, reiterating that he didn't shoot Eddie. "Well, then who did?" Nora asked. "The killer is someone you love," Clint said. When Nora assumed Clint was accusing her of the murder, Clint corrected her. "Matthew shot Eddie Ford," he declared.
