Billy goes to see his son at The Beacon. They catch up on Coop and gossip. Billy thinks that with all that's going on, Lizzie could really use Bill's help. Bill shows his father all of his fake booze and explains his strategy to fool Lizzie and Cyrus before swooping in. His father reminds him that there are other ways but Bill refuses to change his plans.

Lizzie walks into Company and tells Daisy she lost track of her family. Daisy realizes that she has no idea what's happened. She tells her that there was no wedding. Coop was in a car accident and is in surgery now.

At Cedars, Beth is trying to get the blood out of her wedding dress. Rick tells her to go home and rest. She refuses to leave. Rick says that Coop couldn't have survived if Phillip hadn't brought him here. She asks him if Phillip is back to normal. Rick says he doesn't seem like the same guy, but he doesn't know if he's better. Beth has no idea what to do or how her children will feel.

Outside of the mansion, Phillip stops Buzz from attacking Alan. "Are you part of this?" Buzz asks. He and Phillip struggle. Phillip insists that Coop was just in an accident. Buzz realizes that it was Phillip who took Coop to Cedars. "What happened to your son, Buzz, is his own damned fault," Alan says, adding that Phillip should have left him for dead. Buzz promptly punches Alan in the face. Phillip grabs Buzz and holds him back. Alan refuses to bother calling the police since they're all Coopers. As he goes inside, Phillip follows Buzz down to his car. He tells him that he is a different man now and asks after Harley. Buzz tells him that Zach is on the other side of the world and threatens that Alan can't hide forever.

Ashlee rushes into Company after Daisy calls her. She's eager to go over to the hospital and check on Coop, even if his new girlfriend is probably there. Daisy tells her who his new girlfriend is. Ashlee's baffled to hear it's Beth. Daisy sadly tells her about how everyone's love affairs are failing. She hasn't talked to Grady about any of this. After another car crash, it's probably not a good time for him to be around. They begin clearing tables. Ashlee admits that she should go and see Coop, but she doesn't want to because she's too 'weirded out'. Daisy assures her that Coop will get better. Buzz returns and anxiously runs by to prepare food. Ashlee decides she should leave. Daisy follows her grandfather into the kitchen. She tells him that no one will expect him to bring them food in the hospital. "It's my fault," he says. He breaks down, sure that his advice pushed Coop into this. Daisy thinks his advice was wonderful. "Look where it got my son," he says. When he saw Coop run off to stop the wedding, he looked so alive but now...

Rick finds Alan standing by Coop's room at Cedars. Alan grills him about Phillip but Rick doesn't have much to say. Alan tells him that Phillip had a gun. "It wouldn't be the first time someone shot you on your wedding day," Rick points out. Alan needs to know what's been going on with Phillip. Rick only spoke to him a few times; he claimed he had work to do before he came home. He tells him that Bill went looking for him and then asks him to leave.

Phillip walks through the mansion. Beth arrives and they lock eyes. She backs away as he approaches her. She knew that she would see him again. "A lot has changed since you've been gone," she says. She hated him for leaving and she's done what she's had to do to protect their children. "Don't you judge me!" she forbids. He won't. They talk about their mistakes. Coop finally made her feel alive again, but now he's struggling for his life. She tells him that James is away at prep school and Lizzie lost her baby because of Alan. Phillip's jaw drops. He pours a drink. Beth explains that the baby is alive and Reva's son is the father. "I didn't do a very good job," she cries. He tells her that she has nothing to be sorry about after all that he did to her. She cries on his shoulder and he takes her hand. They go upstairs so he can help her clean up. As he undresses her, Beth tells him about Lizzie's kidnapping. He wishes he had been there to help. "Are you here to stay?" she asks. He won't answer. After he walks out, she collapses on the floor in tears.

Lizzie goes looking for Cyrus at his place. She finds Bill climbing out of his back window and demands to know what he's doing. She assumes that he must be planting evidence and begins padding him down to see if he stole anything. In his pocket, she finds pictures of she and Phillip. He admits that he went looking for her dad. "You know, my father tried to kidnap me once? Maybe that's why you relate to him," she snipes, ordering him to stay out of her life.

Beth returns to Cedars and finds Buzz waiting for news. Rick comes out and explains that they have stopped the bleeding but there is liver damage and Coop is still critical.

Alan runs into Bill outside of Cedars. He taunts Alan, but Alan doesn't jump. He informs Bill that Phillip is back.

 image

Lizzie goes to see the wrecked car on the road. Philip approaches and she backs away in horror.
