Casandra was married to mogal George Rawlins who was a friend of Paul's. Paul saw a painting of her in an art gallery and went on a quest to find her - he was obsessed to find out who she was. When he found her they began an affair unbeknownst to Paul that she was George's wife...she was an interior designer. Through her affair with Paul, she also became acquainted with Victor and Brad. George developed a terminal disease and after he discovered Cassandra and Paul were having an affair, he arranged to have himself murdered, for hire, with the intent of framing Paul for it. It looked like it was going to work, but Paul and his detective father tracked and located the real killer in the Bahamas. Before that tho, the real killer, tied up Cassandra then set up some kind of a device connected to a gun which would go off and kill her at a certain time. Victor got wind of the plot and ran in and saved her at the last minute. There was no romance between Victor and Cassandra. As far as Brad is concerned, Cassandra (who was a little nutty) drugged Brad (ala Amber and Cane) and they flew together to Vegas and married. Brad had no knowledge of all this - he didn't even like her. He went to have the marriage legally annulled but before the judge could finalize it, she was killed by a truck and Brad inherited her money from George. He then went to Italy and used that money to start his own software company. Whew!!!!! Did I miss something?!!
