When Jessica enters the steam room, she drops her towel and says, "You think it's hot in here, I'm going to really make you hot." Suddenly, Nash stands up and drops his own towel! "Oh, my, Nash! I thought you were Antonio!" While Jessica pleads for him to put his clothes on, Nash accuses her of liking what she sees! "I hate you!" Jessie screams, then tries to walk away. However, Nash doesn't let her go and says she's not leaving until she stops hating him.

With their towels back on, Nash tries to reason with Jessica for Bree's sake and asks her what it is that he's done to tick her off lately? "I don't hate you," Jessica says. "If it's not hate, then what is it?" Nash persists. Getting flustered by her feelings, Jessica confesses, "If I don't hate you, then what I do feel could ruin everything!"

In his office, Bo tells Antonio and Evangeline that the fallout from Vincent's press conference has been major. While they assure Bo that they're doing damage control, Bo says that he's removing them from the arson case! Antonio is furious, but Bo informs him that he has no choice and that they need to prove Cris' innocence without everyone thinking that the department is playing favorites. Reluctantly, Antonio and Evangeline sign papers acknowledging that they're off the case.

When Cris arrives at the station to find out that Evangeline and Antonio are off the case, he starts to leave and says that he's going to do something that he should've done a long time ago! However, Officer Talia stops him with a warrant to search Cris' studio. "This is crazy! They're not going to find anything!" Cris yells while Evageline thinks back on finding the turpentine-covered gloves at Cris' place!

Rex stands back and looks around the empty room, listening while Spencer has a conversation with no one! Rex comes up with a plan and acts as though he, too, hates Todd and tells Spencer that he wants to do everything to take away Todd's son! In Spencer's mind, Blair says that if Todd really thinks his son is dead, they could get Todd to lash out again! Spencer thinks back to his scuffle with Todd on the roof. "What're you proposing, Balsom?" Spencer asks. Rex approaches Spencer's bedside and hands him the fake death certificate. "We need to make Todd think his son is dead." Spencer agrees to work with Rex! Just as Rex turns to leave, Spencer says, "If we keep Todd in the dark and little Tommy where he is, then everyone wins" Rex's stomach drops

"Tell me you don't love me," Todd dares her. Although Blair admits that she loves him, she says the only way that they can survive is apart. Blair begins to cry and says that she can't do this anymore. "We are not over!" Todd says, then leaves
