Molly, TJ and Alexis enter Kelly's. Shawn asks how the first day of school went. Molly says TJ is behind on some subjects, but she'll help him. Alexis and Shawn sit down at a table while the kids head to the counter. Shawn is happy TJ has Molly for a friend, but Alexis worries TJ might be a bad influence on her daughter. At the counter, TJ looks at Molly's MyFace page and sees she only has five "friends," one being her mother. TJ thinks she might be the one who needs help. Ethan enters and Molly runs to greet him. She catches him on Kristina and then meets Cassandra. Molly returns to TJ at the counter. She's glad Kristina isn't around to see Ethan with Cassandra. After the new couple leaves for the arcade, TJ bocks Molly's MyFace page from her mother in case Molly ever gets a life.


Ethan and Cassandra return to Wyndemere after playing shooting games at the arcade. They find an irritated Ewen. Cassandra leaves to change as Ewen informs Ethan he has taken Cassandra to the shooting range before and she was very skilled. He warns Ethan, as Cassandra eavesdrops.


Johnny angrily shows Anthony his real birth certificate at the penthouse. Anthony plays dumb, but Johnny orders Anthony to be a man and own up to the truth. He grabs his father demanding to know how old Claudia was when he started pimping her out. Anthony admits he used Claudia as bait to get dirt on Gino. He swears it wasn't supposed to go that far. He calls Claudia tragically flawed and declares her life couldn’t have ended any other way than her getting killed. Johnny tears up as he yells out that Claudia was his mother, but he never knew it. Anthony knew Claudia couldn’t handle being a mother and that's why he sent her away. Gino agreed to a big payoff to keep quiet about it. Anthony was going to kill Gino and take his money, but Tracy beat him to it. Anthony calls Johnny a miracle he never expected. The heir he always wanted. Johnny doesn't believe him, accusing him of hating him. Anthony assures him he loves him no matter what. Everything he built is for him. Johnny spits out if he ever sees him again, he'll kill him. It doesn’t change anything for Anthony because everything is Johnny's. Anthony leaves, as Johnny tries to fight back the tears.
