Will hands Iris a check explaining to her that she must stay away from Gwen! Craig is granted full custody of Johnny. Dusty shouts at Barbara saying that Lucy is their only hope.
At the studio, Jade shows up after Gwen stops singing. She asks Gwen if that's how the song is supposed to sound. Adam arrives; he kisses Jade then asks her if she's hungry. When she confirms, he sends her after some food. Jade offers to pick up something for Gwen, but she says she isn't hungry.
After Jade leaves, Gwen confronts Adam about Jade being there. He reminds her that they've already discussed Jade, and whom he sees and don't see… "is outside of work," she finishes for him. Seeing that she understands he suggests they get back to work. However, before they go back to working, he asks her if Jade said something to her. Gwen says she didn't, and then says they should get back to work before she returns with his food or he gets another phone call.
"Do you have any idea who I was talking to?" Adam inquires.
"Hmm… David Gaffin," she answers.
"Mmm… only his favorite art director who just happens to have a break in the schedule, and agreed to do the cover art for our demo. Unless, of course, you'd rather keep talking about my girlfriend."
"Oh, so now she's your girlfriend."
"Alright, fine. I'll call him back and tell him were not interested," Adam replies, then begins walking away.
"No, no, no, noooooo... wait a minute, I'm very interested," Gwen says in a high-pitched tone.
He says that's good, then tells her she needs to pack her bags to leave for the airport. "Airport?" she asks. He confirms, saying they have to go to LA. She asks if they have to leave now. He says no, she has about an hour.
Outside Java, Will hands Iris another check. Iris believes he's giving her money to keep her away from Gwen. She asks how he is getting his money. He replies that his finances are none of her business. She asks if Gwen knows he's paying her to stay away from her. He says she'll know in time, then he explains she must stay away from Gwen! She says she loves Gwen and could promise to stay away, but she can't guarantee it. She goes on to tell Will how she use to sing in the church choir. She gives him a sample by singing the first few words of "Amazing Grace," then she says she use to sing that to Gwen when she was little. Will snatches the check from her hands telling her if they can't come to terms she won't need the money. She takes the check back and agrees to stay away from Gwen. He reminds her," "No contact, no exceptions." She mentions Gwen's Aunt Candice coming to town. He says that won't be a problem. She thanks him saying she doesn't want to come between Gwen and "Candy" because they were "thick as thieves." She goes on to say Candice is going to love him. He says just as long as she keeps her distance.
After Will leaves, she says to herself, "So you want me to stay away from my daughter. This my dear is going to be a down payment."
Back at the studio, Gwen hangs up her phone and conveys to Adam that Will wasn't there, but she says she left him a message. He says not to worry; they won't leave for LA without him.
After Adam leaves, Jade comes back and asks Gwen what her problem is.
"Ahh… you Jade," Gwen replies.
"Adam and I are…" Jade starts to explain.
"Sex buddies," Gwen interrupts. "Yea, I figured it out."
"Look, Adam and I are together and since you two are working together we should try and get along," Jade says sarcastically.
"Oh, okay," Gwen replies before walking away.
After Gwen walks away, Adam arrives and Jade starts loving on him. He notifies her that they are going to have to find another place to "hook up." When she asks him why, he says because he can't risk losing Gwen.
Moments later, Will shows up at the studio looking for Gwen. Adam says she just stepped out, but advises that he clear his schedule because there's a photo shoot in LA for Gwen tomorrow. Jade butts in and invites herself. Will says he can't go because he has an interview he can't get out of. Jade says she guesses it will just be the three of them then. "I'm sorry, Babe. It's not a vacation, its work. I guess if Will can't go it'll just have to be me and Gwen," Adam informs Jade.
At the jail, Barbara notifies Dusty that Lucy showed up at her place, and that she and Craig have Johnny. Dusty tells Barbara Lucy is on their side. She demands to know how Lucy plans on stopping Craig! She goes on to ask him if he realizes Craig doesn't care about Johnny. "Don't you get it this is a tur…" Dusty interrupts, shouting in anger, "I’m locked up, don't you see! Lucy's our hope!" Barbara appears hurt, she says she's sorry she'll just take the papers to her attorney and have him work on a response. Dusty stops her saying she's family and that his son needs her "very much." She walks over to hug him. She tells him she knows and they love him very much. Much calmer this time, he says with Lucy's help they're going to get Johnny back.
At Craig's, Lucy informs Craig that even though he and Barbara have issues she loves her grandson. Craig tells Lucy he's drawn up the paper work to change Johnny's name to Craig Montgomery JR. She confronts him about changing Johnny's name. He wonders whose side she's really on. He says no matter how much he wants her to live with them, if her feelings for Dusty are going to cloud her judgment then she can leave! She asks him why he's questioning her loyalty to her brother when she's just giving him an honest opinion about some of his plans. He responds that he's questioning her loyalty to him and not her brother. She says if that's how he feels then maybe she shouldn't have stopped Dusty from shooting him! He hugs her saying he's sorry. He goes on to say he's just so close to having everything he wants that he doesn't want to blow the chance.
Cassandra comes in to say she spoke to the judge and he will have full custody by the end of the week. She also says given the circumstances the judge agreed he shouldn't have to share Johnny with the mother's family.
With Cassandra gone, Craig tells Lucy with her there they will all be happy. He apologizes for doubting her loyalty earlier.
Once Craig leaves the room, Lucy promises Johnny she won't let Craig hurt him like he has hurt her.
Later, Craig comes back into the living room to find a note from Lucy that reads: "Had to run out. Be back soon." "I wish she had spoken to me. What's your sister up to," Craig says to a sleeping Johnny.
At Carly's, Carly and Simon enter with Henry and Katie still in the living room! When they go inside, Henry pulls Katie down onto the floor behind the couch; she lands on top of him. Once Carly and Simon are inside, Carly informs Simon that she didn't unlock the door; she says it was already unlocked! Simon says maybe Jack stopped by, but she says he would have called first, and even if he had dropped by, he wouldn't have left the door unlocked.
Simon and Carly begin making out on the couch, eventually they leave to take their love making upstairs. Once upstairs, Katie and Henry slip out the front door. Katie informs Henry that Simon is going to jail because he stole the diamond. Henry says good, lets go to Jack. "No, I have a better idea," Katie replies.
Later, Katie meets with Mike and shows him the diamond. He says he never told her to break into Carly's house. She says she knows and it's all on her. She goes on to say she'll go to jail if she has to, to prove she's over Simon. "It'll be worth it," she adds. "No it won't," Mike replies. She says she had to go over there because she knows Simon's a pro. She goes on to say she knew if she didn't take the diamond Simon would have gotten rid of it then it would have been gone and they would have lost any chance at seeing him go to jail. He admits she's right. She says now that they have the evidence she doesn't think Jack will care where they got it because he isn't any happier with Simon than they are. He says if Carly's involved he's not sure how Jack will deal with that. She says then they'll take it to Margo or some other cop, but she says they have to get this done. She asks him to come with her to witness Simon's arrest. He agrees saying he'd like to see Simon brought down. When they arrive at the police station, Katie asks to talk with Jack, but she's told that he's busy at the moment. She says they'll wait. Mike informs her that he has things to do. "More important than nailing Simon?" she asks.
Back at Carly's, the phone rings. Carly answers to find its Sage on the other end. Sage tells her mom their making a solar system for their project but don't have a sun. She makes some suggestions, then Sage says she knows just what she'll use.
When Sage hangs up, she picks up the diamond the homeless woman gave her telling Jill that her mom gave her the best idea for the sun. Sage tells Jill her mom's diamond was right next to her magic crystal. "I hope I picked up the right one," Sage finishes. Jill says if it looks the same, it doesn't matter. Sage confirms saying it looks exactly the same. "You're right, it doesn't matter," Sage says to her friend.
Once Carly hangs up, she goes for her necklace but informs Simon that it's gone! Simon wonders if Sage may have taken it, but she says she wouldn't take it without asking. Simon begins to search for it, but he stops telling her it's okay because it's fake. He asks her to promise him if something does happen she'll walk away so he can take the fall 100%. Instead of promising, she says she thinks Katie broke in while she was gone and stole the diamond! Simon says even if she did take it, it's a fake and there's nothing to link them to the prince's jewels. Carly says she doesn't know, she has an uneasy feeling about it. He informs her those feelings are guilt, "they're natural," he says. She replies that she thinks those feelings mean she's not cutout to be a jewel thief. He says that's good since he just quit the profession, and now they can be "good" together. She thinks they already are "good" together. He suggests now they concentrate on growing their real estate business together; "do some traveling," he says. She reminds him that she has the kids. He says they can take the kids with them. He says their going to really get to know each other better and none of it will have anything to do with diamonds or breaking the law. "It's all blue skies ahead for us. We are going to be fine because we threw the real diamond it the river. Do you know what… that's the best thing we ever did."
Lucy arrives at the jail demanding to talk with Dusty; she says she has to see him! He agrees to talk with her. She reveals what Cassandra said when she dropped by. Dusty instructs her to take a seat. After she takes a seat, Dusty shocks her when he asks her to help him break out! She says even if she could get him out how will that stop her father from getting custody.
"You just get me out of here and I'll take care of the rest," Dusty replies.
"What aren't you telling me?" Lucy inquires.
"We both know that there's only one way to stop him."
"What do you mean?"
"I'm going to finish what I started. I'm going to kill your father."
Outside the store, Gwen finds her mom crying. She approaches her and asks what's wrong. She replies that something horrible has happened. She reaches out for Gwen, hoping to get a hug from her daughter. Gwen's a little reluctant but accepts the hug.
