The Sugarbowl

"Something you said earlier really struck with me," Helen tells Shane as they continue to sit next to one another in the coffeehouse at the window seats. Helen saw Shane and the coffeehouse and approached him; he revealed to her that Robin knows the truth about their plan to break up Adam and Robin's relationship. After learning the truth, Robin slapped her husband and revealed that she wanted an annulment.

"What did I say?" Shane asks her, confused by what she is saying back to him.

Helen looks back at him. "You had indicated that you were going to tell Robin the truth before Adam arrived," Helen tells him, recalling their conversation. "What made you decide to tell the truth?"

Shane sighs back to her as he thinks back to how he and Robin made love and in the aftermath, she revealed that her heart still belongs to Adam. Shane had hoped that the two of them naturally connecting was going to help them become closer, but it didn't happen.

"Well, to be honest," Shane looks back at her. "Robin and I made love a couple of nights ago."

"What? Really? You two really grew closer recently, huh?"

"Or so I thought," Shane replies to her immediately. "In the aftermath, she told me that she wanted to have sex but that her heart still belonged to Adam. It was in that moment that I thought I would tell her the truth. And that's when Adam arrived."

Helen shakes her head back to him. "Does Adam know that you and Robin made love? Because, if he doesn't, that could be the next way that he and Robin stay apart."

Shane uneasily chuckles back to her. "I don't know Helen, I'm not sure we should get involved again. We should let Robin and Adam try to figure this out?"

"I guess you're right," Helen sighs back to him. "I mean, Adam already feels like he can't be around me. This would probably just add more fuel to the flames."


Adam's Townhouse

Adam and Robin finally break free from their kiss and look into each other's eyes with smiles on their faces. Robin had come over to see Adam, for the first time since she learned the truth about Helen and Shane's scheming, and they ended up in a passionate kiss.

"I can't tell you how much I had missed that," Adam tells her as he looks into her eyes. "Despite everything, Robin, I never stopped loving you."

"I know, I never stopped loving you either," Robin admits to him. "This entire situation has been a huge mess."

"It has," Adam nods back to her. "But maybe it's time we put this all behind us. This is our time to be together, really be together without any more interference from Shane and Helen."

"It will still be complicated," she replies to him. "I mean, I am still married to Shane."

"I'll be with you while you get an annulment or a divorce. I still want to be with you, Robin; more than anything else in this world."

Robin smiles back to him. "That's what I want too, Adam."

"Then, let's do this? Let's finally have our time in the sun Robin," he tells her before he kisses her again. "And, I know the perfect way to start."

Robin giggles back to him as she grabs his hand and they race off to the bedroom, eager to prove to one another how much they still love one another.

The Cascade Apartments; Cassie & Max's Home

"I…I don't think I heard you correctly," a stunned Cassie looks back at Jacob in surprise. Jacob arrived at her apartment after Max called Paige to let her know that Cassie's new son, Carter, was back in town. Of course, Cassie has proclaimed that Carter is Jacob's son, which is why he dropped the charges against her. However, Jacob has now told Cassie that he wants to have a DNA test completed on Carter to prove that he is his son. "You want to do a DNA test on my child?"

"Is that so out of the question?" Jacob asks her back quickly. "After everything you have done to me and my family, is it so out of the question to think that you are lying about Carter being my son?"

"Why the hell would I lie about you being his father?" Cassie hisses back to him.

"Oh, I don't know?" Jacob rolls his eyes back to her. "Maybe because you were about to go to jail for a very long time and you were desperate?"

"How dare you!" Cassie continues to lash out at him. "I would never lie about my child's paternity! You mean too much to me do that, Jacob. You know that all I have ever wanted was for us to be together."

"You just gave me another reason as to why I want this test, Cassie."

"Well forget it," Cassie spits back to him. "No one and nothing will do anything to my child, do you hear me? You would do best to remember that. I will protect him, at all costs."

"There you go again, acting crazy as shit."

"Get out of my apartment," Cassie glares back to him. "You had your chance to be apart of my child's life and you just blew it. I said get out! GET OUT!"

"Fine, I'm going," Jacob rolls his eyes back to her. "But this isn't over. Not by a long shot."

The Claus House; Paige's Home

Paige unlocks the front door of the house that she has lived in since she was a child and she scurries inside, with Max following closely behind her. They were at Cassie's when Jacob first met baby Carter; the sight of seeing Jacob connect with the baby was emotional for Paige and she and Max hugged. A short time later, they admitted that they cared for each other still and Max kissed her. Now, they are back at her place, eager to continue their reconnection.

"Are you sure no one is home?" Max asks her as he closes the front door behind himself.

"No one is here," Paige throws her coat on the sofa. "My Mom is living with Cory now. I have the house to myself."

"Good," Max replies to her as his eyes fill with lust. "Because I want to keep going from where we were at the coffeehouse."

Paige giggles back to him as she moves up to him. "Are you sure you want to do this again?"

"I am more than sure," Max nods back to her. "Are you sure?"

Paige leans in and kisses him passionately again. "Does that answer the question?"

Max kisses her back before his lips find her neck. "God, I want you," Max tells her as he continues to undress her quickly.

"I want you too," Paige moans back to him in pleasure as she starts to unzip his jeans.

The Young Mansion; Nicholas' Home

"Clayton, are you going to answer me? Did you and Andy have sex?" Nicholas asks Clayton, who is standing in his foyer with Andy and his lover. He is stunned by everything that has happened as Clayton arrived at his place for a breakfast date and they ended up having sex with one another; shortly after, Andy arrived and told him that he had to talk to him. Before Andy could reveal what he was going to discuss, Clayton arrived in the foyer without his shirt on. Andy immediately wondered if the two of them had sex, which Nicholas confirmed. However, Andy stunned him by revealing that the previous night he and Clayton had sex. Nicholas feels like his head is spinning by everything that has happened.

"We did," Clayton admits to him quickly. "But it isn't what you think. It just…happened."

"Look, I think you two need to talk," Andy interjects. "Nicholas, you and I…we can talk soon. I have to get going."

"Andy, I'm sorry for all of this," Nicholas looks back at him. "Thanks for coming by this morning."

"Of course," Andy nods back to him. "See you around, Clayton."

Nicholas looks back at Clayton once Andy has left the room. "So you have sex with Andy last night and then me today? What gives, Clayton?"

"It's like I said," Clayton sighs back to him heavily. "What happened with Andy, it just happened. What I want to do is be with you. That's why I brought you breakfast this morning. And that's why I was eager to be with you."

"You have no idea how complicated this is."

"I am right in the middle of it," Clayton replies to him. "I think I know how complicated again. I guess the question is, what do you want to do now? Where do we go from here?"

Nicholas sighs heavily back to him. "I wish I knew," he admits to him. "I think I'm going to need some time to process this and think about it, Clayton. Can you give me that time?"

"Of course," Clayton nods back to him. "Whatever you need, Nicholas. Just know that I never meant to hurt you. I care about you more than I can say."

The Davenport House; Trenyce, Chris & Andrew's Home

"I can't get over how adorable little BJ is," Cheresa tells Trenyce as she looks into the crib and sees her half-brother sleeping inside. She is still so grateful that BJ and Trenyce are safe and healthy after Trenyce's scary delivery of her son. Cheresa doesn't know what she would have done if anything had happened to her mother or new half sibling.

"He is very cute," Trenyce chuckles back to her. "Except when it's 2 am and he's screaming his head off for food."

Cheresa laughs back to her as she moves to the sofa and sits next to her mother. "How are you feeling? No side effects from the delivery?"

"No, I'm feeling better than ever," Trenyce smiles back to her. "How about you? How are you feeling from the kidnapping? I am so sorry I didn't do more to try to help you."

"You were giving birth, I think that counts as a reason why you were busy," Cheresa winks back to her. "But honestly, I am taking it day by day. I still have nightmares and I hope they will go away. And, I quit Robertson Enterprises. I just don't think that I can work there anymore."

"Have you thought about talking to someone?" Trenyce asks her quickly. "It might help to get some of these feelings out in the open."

"I'll think about it," Cheresa looks back at her. "But we should talk about feelings being kept bottled in."

Trenyce arches her eyebrow back to her. "What are you talking about?"

Cheresa sighs back to her. "Well, before I was kidnapped, I actually stopped by here," Cheresa reveals as Trenyce gulps heavily. She knows where her daughter is going with this as Andrew spoke to her about her the night she gave birth. "And I saw you and Andrew kissing."

"What you need to realize…"

"I don't want to hear any excuses," Cheresa cuts her off. "I think you should tell Chris the truth. Before he gets in deeper with you and BJ, he deserves to what is going on. Tell Chris the truth Mom, or I will."


Meanwhile, in the kitchen Chris puts away some groceries while Andrew puts some clean dishes away from the dishwasher. Chris looks over at Andrew while he closes the fridge door after putting the milk inside.

"I'm glad we have a few moments alone to talk," Chris tells the younger man.

Andrew finishes putting away some plates before he looks back at Chris. "What's going on man?"

"It's about your living arrangements," Chris looks back at him with intent. "I think they need to change."

Andrew arches his eyebrow back to him. "You want me to move out? Why? Trenyce has liked me being around here."

"I get that," Chris nods back to him. "And, I'm grateful for everything that you have done around here. But I am planning to propose to Trenyce; if and when she says yes, I think it would be best for us to be alone living together, don't you?"

Andrew uneasily nods back to him. "You're going to propose? That's news. That's, uh, exciting…"

"Thanks," Chris smiles back to him. "So, it's not rush but maybe start looking for a new place?"

"Yea, of course," Andrew gulps back to him, thinking about how and Trenyce shared many kisses together. "I'll get on that."

The Richardson Estate; Meggan, Lukas & Donovan's Home

Donovan lays in his large king size bed that he shares with Lukas in the lavish Richardson estate. He got home from a rehabilitation appointment not too long ago and is feeling rather tired. However, he knows that he has continued to do his rehab because he is determined to regain the feeling in his legs. He hates that he has been reduced to a wheelchair; he feels like he is missing out on so much time with Lukas and baby Olly; he wants nothing more than to get back on his feet and regain his life.

He looks at his feet and tries to force himself to try to move them. "Come on," Donovan glares at his feet with intent. "Move, please, move."

To his surprise, Donovan's feet move a little. "My God, yes!" Donovan says trying not to get too excited by what is happening.

He continues to move his feet and legs until he is standing up on the floor and he takes a step. He looks forward with tears in his eyes. "It's happening," he whispers to himself. "It's finally happening."


Meanwhile, in the living room, Lukas pours himself a drink as he recalls how he and Meggan went on live TV earlier to ask Frederick to come home since they know he is alive. While Lukas knows that he and Meggan went on TV to try to convince Frederick to come home, he has mixed emotions about his father coming home since he knows that his father caused everyone so much pain when he was alive.

"I saw you on TV earlier," Jasper announces as he moves into the living room. "Do you think it will work? Do you think your father will come back to town?"

Lukas turns and sees his lover walk closer to him. He shrugs his shoulders, not sure what to say back to him. "To be honest, I have no idea," Lukas admits to him. "I have so much going on in my life right now, I am not even sure if I want my father to be back in my life."

"I can appreciate that you and your father have a sorted history," Jasper licks his lips back to him. "But at the end of the day, he is your family, and what else do we have in this life other than family?"

Lukas smiles back to him. "I suppose you're right," he tells him. "I guess I have felt that way since Donovan and I adopted Olly. I can't believe that we've had him for a year now."

"That little boy loves you both," Jasper says back to him. "He really is blessed to be growing up in such a loving home."

"See," Lukas looks back at him. "This is the Jasper that I really like."

Jasper uneasily chuckles back to him. "What does that mean?"

"I just mean that it's nice to just talk with you and not have it be riddled with sexual innuendos and memories of our affair."

"You told me that you wanted to leave that in the past," Jasper replies to him quickly. "I can definitely respect that, Lukas. What you and Donovan have built together, it's what I want one day. I don't want to ruin what you have, even if being with you was hot."

Andy moves into the living room and freezes when he sees Lukas and Jasper move into a hug. After he left Nicholas', Andy really needed to see a friend, so he came to see Donovan. He was hoping to tell him the latest that is going on with him and Clayton, but instead he is witnessing Lukas and Jasper in what seems like a very friendly hug. Andy arches his eyebrow and immediately wonders what is going on between the two men.

The Pampa Grill

"Well, you are right about one thing," Natasha says as she passes Jacob back his IPhone and then takes a sip of her red wine. "Carter is a very cute little boy."

"This entire disaster became real when I saw him," Jacob replies to her before he shows Shane the picture of the boy that Cassie is claiming to be his son. "I don't know why but until I saw him, I was still half expecting Cassie to say that it was all a lie to get me to drop the charges against her."

"I still think that this could be a lie," Natasha huffs back to her son and her ex-husband. "How the hell do we know that this is kid is really yours?"

"I mean I hate to be a skeptic, but Carter does look a lot like Jacob when he was a baby," Shane passes his son his phone back. "What are you going to do now?"

Jacob sighs back to his parents. "That's the thing, I have no idea. I told Cassie that I wanted a DNA test and she freaked out on me and basically told me no."

"See, that proves it!" Natasha rolls her eyes. "That proves that she is lying."

"Maybe but maybe not," Shane replies to her quickly. "What do you think Jacob? Did you feel a connection to Carter?"

"I did," Jacob uneasily admits to them. "But without proof…"

"Then we have to get proof," Natasha tells her son. "We have to prove that Cassie Nova is once again lying and when we do, she can spend the rest of her miserable life behind bars, where she belongs."
