Outside the courtroom, Destiny demands to know if Greg was telling the truth on the stand. He thinks back to Eli's threats and replies, "Why would I lie?" Nate appears and Greg urges them to go check on Dani. After Greg leaves, Destiny warns Nate that Dani is going to need them.

The judge calls the courtroom to order to address her decision. She grants custody of Dani to Ross! Todd objects. He pleads Dani's case and can't believe he has to get visitation to see Dani. Blair interrupts, "That will right there is a fake and Mr. Rayburn knows it!" Destiny and Nate enter as the judge transfers full custody of Dani to Ross. Todd begins threatening the judge. Ross vows to fight it if she grants Todd visitation. He's dangerous! Ross plays a recording of Todd threatening to kill him. "Oh my God," Dani cries. "How could you?" The judge allows Todd an hour with Dani and gives Ross permission to take her to Tahiti after that. Nate vows to help Dani and asks her to wait for him. He leaves. Todd pushes Ross away from Dani and takes her home.

John and Natalie discuss Ross and Eli at Rodi's. They wonder if Eli strong-armed Greg into doing something he didn't want to do. John calls the hospice where Tea was staying hoping someone can backup Greg's story.

At Kitts Hospice, Eli argues with a nurse who insists he stay put. Eli warns that Greg has until the end of the day to check in on him or he's out of there. Another nurse comes in to inform Eli's nurse that Det. McBain is on the phone for her.

The nurse talks the call out in the hallway and admits she spent some time with Tea but Dr. Evans took a strong personal interest in Tea's case. She tells John that Greg has been at the hospice since Tea's death.

When the nurse returns, Eli tries prying for information on John's call. She doesn't budge and assures him that Greg will be there soon. Eli wonders what Greg's been up to! Eli is happy to get a text from Ross saying he got custody of Dani. Greg appears and Eli demands he release him. Greg refuses to let him leave!

Back at Rodi's, John relays his conversation to Natalie. He plans to find out why Greg has been back to Kitts Hospice since Tea's death. John makes another call and finds out Greg hopped a plane to Kitts Hospice.

James is daydreaming in his apartment that he's kissing Starr. Ford arrives home having no luck finding a job. James brings up Nate's troubles. Ford reminds James that they have troubles of their own. He remembers Nate saying the country club is hiring and suggests that Ford apply. Nate offered to put in a good word for him. Ford is offended that James told Nate about his problems. James suggests Ford thank Nate for the offer then leaves.

Clint and Inez are at The Palace. Though Inez thanks him for helping James, Clint wants to know more about Ford's job issues. Inez thinks there is more to the accusations against Ford. Clint assumes the Dean didn't want to let Ford, an award winning director, go. They were backed into a corner because the girl involved is the Mayor's daughter. Clint offers to put in a good word for Ford. Inez doesn't want Clint to waste his time. Ford doesn't want her help or the help of anyone associated with her. She wonders, in time, what Clint will want from her in return for his help. Clint assures Inez she owes him nothing. He has power and isn't afraid to use it to help others. Ford arrives unnoticed and asks about the job opening saying Nate referred him. The manager thinks highly of Nate and offers Ford a job to start immediately. Later, Ford is called to Clint's table to take their order. Introductions are made then Ford leaves to get a waiter for Clint, who wonders if this is going to be a good career change for Ford. Inez hates seeing Ford so unhappy. She would like for something else to come up for him. Clint would like for that to happen too.

The Dean stops Langston and Starr in a Llanview U hallway. She needs to talk to Langston about Ford and her future at the college. Langston's happy to hear that she's not in trouble. The Dean assures her that what happened to Langston at the hands of Mr. Ford will not happen to any other students. The Dean vows to make sure Ford doesn't ever teach again. Langston stops the Dean from walking away but thinks twice about confessing. After the Dean leaves, Starr wonders if Langston was going to admit Ford's innocence. Langston reminds her that neither she nor Ford is innocent. She brings up seeing Markko and says, "I hurt everybody I care about." Starr urges Langston not to beat herself up over Markko. Over talk of Markko and Cole spending time together tonight, Langston wonders why Starr isn't joining them. Starr fills Langston in on Hannah and her and Cole's admission about having feelings for Hannah and James. They agreed to forget about them and concentrate on their relationship. "Are you sure you can do that?" Langston asks. Starr assures Langston she can, turns around and runs into James. After an uncomfortable exchange, Langston says, "I guess that was a good effort." Suddenly, Starr gets a call from Blair about Dani and tells Langston, "I'm losing my sister."
