    Monday, April 20 2009: The Good Guy!

    In court, Neil stands up and pleads with the judge to hear him out! He says he's adopted before - Ana's older brother, Devon - and he considers him to be not like a son, but to be his son. He explains that he feels the same way about Ana, and wants to do right by her - that's why he is asking her to place Ana with Tyra Hamilton - the woman who has made her what she is today! Karen gasps in shock, and Tyra's jaw drops! The judge is puzzled over his sudden change of heart - Neil admits there are problems in his marriage. Lily, stunned, watches as Karen asks Neil, "What have you done?"

    Neil follows Karen home, and arrives to find her packing her suitcase and saying she's going as far away from there as she can get! She accuses him of having wanted it to end this way all along. She says he's always the good guy - can't let anyone down - even his mistress! They argue over whether their relationship has been real or lies - she says he used her to get over his dead wife! Karen says she always knew 'they' were wrong, but he kept coming after her with promises - and she believed him! When Neil grabs her arm and won't let go, telling her he loves her, she hits him! As she sobs, the door opens and Tyra, Ana, and Devon stand there, stunned. After reassuring Ana it's not her fault, Karen takes her bag and goes out to the elevator. She stands crying as the door closes. Inside the apartment, Ana asks Tyra, "Where do we go now?" A stupefied Neil stands holding Karen's wedding ring in the palm of his hands.
