Will $20 Million Buy Me the Truth?
Opal reads Ryan's fortune, David faces Erica, and an unexpected visitor arrives!
At the hospital, Angie tells Amanda and Jake that David is not going to be doing surgery there after all. Amanda says that's great - he's got no reason to stay then! She urges Jake to let it go once and for all. Jake still wants to go ahead with the lawsuit. They argue, and Jake assures her they'll have peace - as soon as he knows David is gone.
Tad is joking with Krystal about her accident at the Martin house. Opal insists that her tea leafs say something is amiss - and whatever is getting started has wicked written all over it! Tad thinks of David, but says he is supposed to be leaving town. Krystal wryly points out that he's lied before. Tad says if David stays, then Jake will take care of him! Jake and Amanda come in - Amanda announces that David is leaving. They start teasing Krystal, and she gets up to leave the room. Jake asks where Liza is, and Amanda explains that Jake is going to drop the lawsuit. Krystal urges them to hold off - they have two years to file it. Opal gets back on the topic of the ominous tea leaf reading, and Tad gets a call from his man at the airport - David's plane just took off for Gloucester! The all toast teacups to the good news.
At the Wildwind chapel, David looks out the window and smiles. Greenlee comes into the room and tells David to picture his wedding to the mystery bride - everyone will wonder who it could be! She laughs at the thought of their shock when she reveals herself to be alive, and marrying David. David smiles, and they both agree that they're committed to the idea. As Greenlee talks about battling Erica for her company, David reminds her that she's recovering. She says she has nothing left but payback, and she's going to get it - with his help. David wonders if there's been enough pain. Greenlee scoffs at the idea of him telling her to take the high road. She also urges him to fight for Marissa - they'll fight together as Dr. and Mrs. Hayward! David admits the idea has a certain appeal. When David won't kneel and propose, Greenlee does it! He accepts and they embrace. She tells him the wedding will take place on the anniversary of her death - Valentine's Day! David points out that it will be challenging getting people to attend - especially Erica and Ryan! Greenlee isn't worried - she says Erica won't miss an opportunity to appear with Ryan as the town's new glamour couple. She also wants to invite Kendall and Zach. David notices the catch in her voice, and says, "You miss her." Greenlee wants to start planning her vows - for revenge! David leaves, and Greenlee imagines the wedding and the reactions to the reveal!
David is back up at the house, when Erica arrives. He asks what he can do for her. Erica says that she has a problem. David says, "Fusion." He asks if she really thinks he did it. Erica muses that if he did it, he wouldn't leave town, he'd stick around and watch the fallout. David grins. He says that the flash drive was stolen from his briefcase. Erica points out that he is the number one suspect - he should let her help him! David tells her he doesn't need help, and he would never believe she would offer it from the goodness of her heart. Erica admits that he needs to get from under the suspicion, and Fusion needs a jolt of cash. He asks if $20 million would buy him the truth! He laughs at her expression, and he tells her the negotiation is over - his house was robbed, end of story. Erica muses it's quite a coincidence that his flash drive ends up crashing her computer system! David points out that he has no motive whatsoever to sabotage Fusion. He offers her some money to help, and she leaves.
Ryan arrives at the Martin house and fills them all in on the latest about David. He admits that they need to figure out what his motive would be for sabotaging Fusion. Amanda tells Ryan that she and Liza saw a tabloid at Wildwind with him and Erica on the cover - it was torn in half! Opal urges Ryan to drink tea. Krystal explains that Opal will read the leaves. Ryan is dubious, but he drinks it. When he finishes everyone yells at him to swirl clockwise three times! Ryan starts to worry about Erica, who is with David right now. He leaves, and Jake, Amanda, and Tad decide to go to the police station. Opal reads Ryan's tea cup and tells Krystal that something is going to happen to him that will change his life for good!
Back down at the police station, Tad, Jake, and Amanda offer up the ripped tabloid to Jesse as a motive for David doing in Fusion. Jesse says they still don't have anything other than circumstantial evidence. Jake blurts that he saw David that night - going up in the elevator! Jesse is skeptical, and Amanda glares. Jesse steps away and Tad hisses that he's going to call Liza - someone needs good legal advice.
Ryan shows up at Wildwind looking for Erica. David tells him she already left, but Ryan pushes past him and says he'll take a look around just to be sure!
