You're The Sideshow. image

At home, Lily reads the paper and then calls Faith to ask her if she's heard the latest. She hasn't, but she's sure it must be a hard time for her mother defending Holden for murdering Damian. When Lily offers to call her head mistress and have her brought home, Faith tells her she'll come home when her mid-terms are over. As soon as she gets off the phone, the head mistress lectures her about the drugs they found in her locker. Faith tries making excuses until Damian arrives, claiming to be her father and bailing her out of the mess. She's been suspended so he offers to take her with him. She wants to call the police instead but he advises her to co-operate with him since he is the only one who can save her father now.

They get into his car. He reminds her that he's saved her before. She asks him to save her dad. He tells her that he can't do that yet and claims that he is the victim of a power struggle in his family. When she pulls out her phone, he tells her that's a bad idea and she has to trust him. He promises to cover up her pot smoking and get her out of boarding school if she'll keep his being alive a secret. Molly calls her and offers to come and pick her up. Faith says she's too busy with school and hangs up.

In Oakdale, Molly goes to the station to see Holden. They kiss and talk about what to do next. He says he wanted to kill Damian but couldn't do it. He's sure someone else must have been killed on the boat to take his place and fake his death. As they make out, Lily walks in. The three of them begin bickering about Damian and Molly tells her to get lost if she's not on Holden's side. After she leaves, Lily tells Holden she believes in him and she brought the kids to see him. He plays with the kids for a minute and then asks Lily to take them and leave town today. Holden is sure that Damian is still up to something and he can't help her while she's locked up. Lily insists that he needs her help.

In Minneapolis, Craig throws a fit after he discovers that Carly has dragged him there just to chase after Jack again. She tells him that she expects Jack to run back into her arms. Craig seriously doubts that and tells her that Janet needs Jack right now, even if he's had one foot out the door for the whole marriage. She thinks the only way to help Liberty is for everyone to accept that Jack and Janet's marriage is unhealthy. They look in the hall and see Dusty. Carly worries Jack will throw his whole life away out of obligation. "What about me?" she asks. Craig tells her that jack and Janet were happy but she and Jack just torture each other. When she goes into the bathroom, he steals her phone and then locks the door from outside with a cord. Carly tries to leave in a little red dress and starts freaking out when the door is stuck.

Janet walks into her room and finds Jack with Dusty. Janet tries covering and Jack orders Dusty out. He tells Janet he knows everything. Janet sends Dusty out. As he leaves, he suggests Jack look in the mirror before he lays all the blame on her. After he's gone, the couple bickers, mostly about Carly, and she insists she isn't having an affair. "There have been three people in this marriage from the beginning," she says. He asks her if she's in love with Dusty. They go over everything again. She refuses to justify her friendship with Dusty.

Craig goes down to the bar and sits with Dusty. He tells him that Carly won't be interrupting Mr. and Mrs. Snyder any time soon. "You're the sideshow Dusty," Craig says, advising him to stay away before things get more explosive. Dusty thumps away. Craig chases after him.

Carly escapes and interrupts Jack and Janet in her room. He tells her he doesn't have time for her. She's sick of waiting, insisting that she has every right to be part of this discussion. Craig and Dusty arrive. Carly declares that they all have to stop pretending and this situation has to end. She tells Janet that she and Jack have sacrificed everything for her and it turns out she isn't even faithful to Jack. He was going to ask for a divorce and only stopped himself because of Liberty. "Everybody knew except for me," Janet realizes. Carly thinks they should all move on. Jack refuses to listen and asks everyone to leave him alone with his wife. After they all file out, Dusty stares off sadly. Jack apologizes to Janet and says they should just be thinking about Liberty. She thinks he's an even bigger liar than she is. He wants their marriage to work. She admits that she might be in love with Dusty. He admits that he is in love with Carly and suggests they go back to seeking an annulment. "We're still going to have a baby for Liberty, no matter what," she says. After she sends him out, she packs, takes off her wedding ring and weeps.

Craig tells Carly that they should go and see a real estate agent. She wants to be alone, sure that Jack will come to her. She walks into her room and takes chocolate out of the minibar.

Jack wanders the streets trying to take off his wedding ring but its stuck.
