Tad is dancing with a nurse when he collapses. Jake rushes in! Tad makes more jokes and says he has a right to only see the good right now. He tells Jake to lighten up, too. Jake tells Tad how much he has always looked up to him.
Jesse reminds Liza of her past criminal activities when she skirts his questions about the murder. She finally admits she was at the manse! Jesse wants more details and Liza says she was there to see Colby but didn't get past the front gate. Colby tries to comfort Scott but he is inconsolable. She continues down the hall and runs into Liza. Liza asks Colby to lie for her and tell Jesse that they only talked at the gate before the murder. She says she has no one to back her up because she went for a walk, alone, after they talked. Colby refuses because she thinks Liza might have killed Stuart! She demands the truth and Liza admits she was in the mansion when Stuart was killed. She says she heard someone else in the manse and left. She swears she didn't shoot anyone that night. Colby still doesn't believe her and Liza says this is the exact reason she needs an alibi. "I came here so we could have a second chance," Liza says. Colby hurries off to see Adam. Jake comes by and Liza hugs him. She says this baby is her second chance at motherhood and her only chance to make things right with Colby. Jake says she can't have Amanda's baby because that wasn't part of their plan. He points out that Colby isn't in danger from Adam and that Liza needs to give Colby time. She says he doesn't want to help her because of Colby's true parentage!
JR tries to keep Adam calm but he demands to see Stuart. Crying, Adam begs to see his twin, angry at himself for egging so many people on and risking Stuart's life. "What kind of a god would let me live and allow the murder of Stuart?" Adam wonders. JR says this might be Adam's second – and last! – chance to turn his life around. Scott overhears and says he doesn't deserve another chance and demands to know why Stuart was dressed up like Adam. Adam says it was Stuart's idea because he wanted to look good at the signing of the new will, giving Scott the company. This makes Scott feel even worse and he storms out. JR tells Adam that Scott is just hurt right now but Adam says he deserves the blame. Colby runs in and hugs Adam but he starts to have trouble breathing so she goes to get a nurse.
Kendall is sleeping beside Ian's hospital crib. She dreams about seeing Stuart through the window and pointing the gun at him. A gunshot wakes her and she sees Ryan watching her. He asks about the dream and Kendall says she dreamt that she was in the mansion with a gun, telling herself to kill Adam for Ian. She says it was just a bad dream. He tells her that Annie turned herself in and she goes to see Ian. Jesse watches from the hall and then tells Ryan that Annie will be sent back to a psychiatric hospital. Jesse asks about Kendall and then tells Ryan about Zach's request for an immediate arraignment. He says they don't have enough evidence to arraign Zach and Ryan remembers grabbing Kendall, who was still holding the gun, outside the mansion. Jesse watches Kendall closely through the window. Jesse wonders if Zach really is guilty – or covering for someone else! A nurse comes in to tell Kendall about Zach's upcoming arraignment.
After talking to Ryan, Jesse tracks down Colby at the nurse's station and asks about Liza's alibi. Colby sticks with Liza's story at first and then has second thoughts. A while later Jesse finds Liza and says he knows she lied about her talk with Colby! Liza admits she was at the mansion but swears she didn't kill Stuart. "I know who did, though," she says.
Scott returns to Stuart's home, finds Marian crying on the floor and hugs her. He tells her how Stuart dressed up like Adam, blaming himself for coming home and getting involved with Adam and JR. Marian insists he isn't to blame and that Stuart was always proud of him.
One officer cuffs Zach to a chair as another brings in Annie and cuffs her to a bench. Annie tells him that she turned herself in. He is surprised, especially when she tells him that she saved Adam's life at the mansion and in the basement! She asks if he really killed Stuart and then says she'll see him in hell. An officer leads her away as Zach demands an immediate arraignment. He tells the interrogating officer that he went after Adam because of Ian's 'death' but shot Stuart by accident. He even tells the officer about the prior threats and again demands to be arraigned. The officer says they have to finish ballistics tests first but when Zach pushes him, he says they can probably set the arraignment for this afternoon. Ryan arrives as Zach is about to be taken for the arraignment. He tells Ryan not to tell Kendall about this but to make sure the boys know he loves them. Ryan leaves. Kendall arrives. Reporters try to get Zach to tell them something but he focuses on Kendall, telling her to go back to the boys and stay away from him. Ryan walks back in. Kendall asks why Zach is doing this. She finally realizes that Zach believes she is guilty. She asks if Ryan believes the same thing!
Scott returns to the hospital and, along with JR, watches Adam talk to Stuart in the morgue. He continues to blame Adam for Stuart's death. Inside, Adam tells Stuart that he was the better brother, the better caretaker and the better man. He tells Stuart that he kept the painting of the cove, wishing they had seen the place together. "You painted as you lived. Gently and richly," he says.
