Neil and Harmony reach an agreement, Lauren gives Michael an explanation, and Tucker worries about his marriage.
At the Chancellor estate, Neil gives Katherine some contracts he tweaked. Katherine marvels that he came all the way there for that - she thinks the trip was about Harmony. She says she hopes they work it out - they've all come so far. Once alone, Harmony reads Neil the riot act for coming there. Neil tells her she can't avoid him and Sofia or Devon will notice - and he will too. Neil admits he missed her today. Harmony can't act like nothing's changed - she really liked the kiss, and can't be around him. Neil husks that the kiss meant something to him too. Harmony doesn't want to make trouble for him. Neil thinks they can become friends. Harmony reminds him she's an addict - temptation is too much for her. Neil says he's an addict too. They agree to stay away from each other. Neil gets a call from Sofia and leaves.
At the Club bar, Ashley asks Tucker why he wants to start this Beauty of Nature stuff again. They bicker about the 'business opportunity' Genevieve's offered him. Ashley doesn't want him associating with Gen, and asks him to walk away. Tucker doesn't know if he can do what she's asking. Ashley wonders if he and Sofia fell out over Beauty of Nature. Tucker admits that it was all a set-up. Hurt, Ashley storms off. Harmony arrives and Tucker says he feels like a disappointment to Ashley. He's not sure he can cut it where marriage is concerned. Harmony asks why he's telling her. He shrugs and says maybe because she's seen him at his worst.
At the penthouse door, Nick and Phyllis act skeptical of Daisy's story about Lauren. Daisy insists the cops just arrested her. Nick tries to placate Daisy, but Phyllis isn't buying her innocence in the scenario. Daisy says she just wants to talk to Daniel. Phyllis tells her Daniel is out of town.
Michael and Avery arrive at the police station. Jill informs them that Daisy was taunting Lauren. An officer tells Michael that Lauren won't be arraigned until tomorrow. Avery goes to change that. Michael is upset that Lauren had a gun and Jill knew about it. Michael goes to see Lauren. Nick and Phyllis arrive. Phyllis tells Jill she knew Lauren had a gun as well. Avery reappears and says she couldn't get the arraignment moved up.
In the interrogation room, Lauren tells Michael she knew he wouldn't approve of the gun, and he'd think she was unstable, but she needed to feel in control. Michael points out that she lost control today. Lauren says something snapped when she mentioned Fen. Michael sighs, "And you bought into that?" Lauren says she was afraid. Michael says he loves her, but they can't keep living this way. He decides they will move out of their apartment. Michael rejoins the others upstairs and Lauren is taken to her cell. Phyllis admits to Michael she knew about the gun. He grabs her in anger that she didn't tell him and prevent all this. Phyllis protests that Lauren confided in her. Avery jumps in, saying emotions are running high right now. Michael hollers at Phyllis that she could have prevented this, and leaves.
At Fenmore's, Katherine offers to help while Jill, upset over Lauren, takes care of some things. They have a laugh over Katherine working the sales floor. Katherine rings up a sale much to a customer's delight. Kay rolls her eyes at the customer's gushing. Ashley arrives. Katherine says how glad she is that they can talk now. They discuss the situation with Sofia - Ashley says she has no problem with Tucker confiding in Katherine, but leaves hastily. Jill watches her go. Katherine tells Jill, "It was something I said."
Nick and Phyllis return to the penthouse and kiss. She's glad he's been there for her; it helps.
On the coffee house patio, Michael tells Avery that Lauren admitted she snapped. He muses that they've been down this road before - he's terrified at what might happen next. Avery tries to reassure him, but Michael worries that Lauren may not be able to leave the house again.
Neil arrives at Crimson Lights and Sofia tells him Moses sat up all by himself today. Neil is proud.
In her cell, Lauren flashes back to being held captive by Daisy. She cries, "It's never going to end."
