At the police station, Amanda and Jake argue about his plan to lie under oath to incriminate David. Liza is there regarding Damon's case, and Tad rushes over to ask her to talk sense into Jake! Liza hurries over to where Jake is about to sit down with Jesse. Jake sighs and says he'll give her a minute. Amanda, Liza, and Tad all try to make Jake see that he could be prosecuted for lying to the police. Liza warns he will get tripped up, and then he'll go to prison for perjury! Jesse comes back into the room and asks if Jake is ready. Jake says, "Let's get this show on the road!" Amanda and Tad walk out and comment on Jake self-destructing. Jake gives Jesse his statement, saying he saw David get on the elevator at Fusion and go up. Jake tells him it was Monday night, and Jesse tersely informs him that Fusion was attacked on Tuesday. Liza realizes that Jake deliberately got the day wrong - he saw the light.
Erica gets an unexpected visitor, Jake makes a decision about incriminating David, and David makes an announcement!
Erica answers the door to her home and is stunned to see Jack. He kisses her cheek and tells her he came back because of her! She thinks he is there because he heard about what happened to Fusion. Jack muses that word of her and Ryan's 'teamwork' has spread quickly - he holds up a tabloid! He assures her he didn't come because he's jealous, but wonders if she's considered the implications. Erica says she spoke to Bianca and Kendall after making the announcement. Jack wonders if she spoke to Spike - what's he to think about seeing a picture of them kissing! Erica is angry that he is using Spike to humiliate her! Erica wonders if Jack's real issue is out of some kind of loyalty to Greenlee? She asks what he wants - Ryan to go on grieving for the rest of his life? Jack asserts that Ryan isn't over Greenlee, and if she thinks he is, she's in for a surprise. Erica insists he is holding something back - him flying there to protect her from a man who has been wonderful to her doesn't add up! Jack tells her that he has been in Ryan's shoes - what they had was life-changing and hard to get over - and one looks for escapes. Jack tells Erica she deserves more than to be Ryan's escape!
Ryan is at David's house looking for Erica. David tells him she's already been and gone. While Ryan's back is to the front door, Greenlee comes in. She quickly hides as David keeps bickering with Ryan, who says he just can't figure out what his motive was. He asks about the ripped up tabloid found there. David says, "Maybe it's not about Erica. Maybe it's about you." Ryan scoffs that someone might be doing this to get at him. They bicker some more, and Ryan suddenly blurts, "Greenlee!" Ryan wonders if David is still resentful that he took up with his late brother's wife. Ryan tells David that Leo and Greenlee are both gone - if that's what this is about, he's even more pathetic than he thought! Ryan leaves.
Greenlee comes into the front room at Wildwind after Ryan is gone. She says she realizes now that Ryan thinks of her as part of his past. David reminds her that he thinks she's dead. Greenlee says a fling or two would have been forgivable, but not taking over her company with Erica Kane! David tells her he has to go give a statement regarding his fingerprints being on the flash drive at Fusion. Greenlee apologizes for that. He says if she wants the wedding, he'll give it to her. There is a knock at the door and David tells her to hide - he's expecting a delivery. A stack of gold boxes are brought in. Greenlee comes back out, and he tells her they're all for her! After he leaves, Greenlee dreams about marrying Ryan.
Ryan comes to the police station, where he speaks to Jake in passing. Jesse appears and asks about what happened at Wildwind. Ryan comments that it sounds like Erica got nowhere, and David then suggested that Ryan was the reason Fusion was targeted. Jesse still thinks it doesn't make sense for David to dredge up feelings about Leo or Greenlee now. They wonder if there is a grain of truth in it, what it could be?
David shows up at the police station and tells Jesse he's ready to be completely co-operative. David tells him the flash drive was stolen from his briefcase - it's not his fault what happened to it once it wasn't in his possession. Jesse plays the tape of Jake saying he saw him getting into the elevator. David scoffs, saying everyone knows Jake would say anything to put him away - that's why Jesse isn't going to arrest him - because he didn't do it!
Jake, Tad, Liza, and Amanda gather at ConFusion where Jake suggests that they come up with something better to incriminate David - like putting a cufflink in Fusion next to the computer. Tad says they aren't there to talk about nailing David - this is an intervention - Jake has to stop! Amanda tells Jake she is with him because he's not like David. Jake says he didn't start this - he's just making sure it's over! Liza tells him to think about losing his family. Tad hits Jake on the back of the head and follows Liza who has walked over to the bar. She sighs, and tells him that Bailey left with Stuart to live with her parents - she's gone for good. Liza doesn't want to see another family ripped apart because of David. David walks into Fusion and Amanda tells him to just leave. David informs them that he's getting married on Valentine's Day - and if they want to know who the bride is, they'll have to show up!
Ryan goes home and calls Erica, who is short with him as she is still with Jackson. He tells her not to forget that they're off to the sun tomorrow. She tells him she'll see him tomorrow and hangs up.
Back at Erica's, Jack listens to Erica's curt tone with Ryan on the telephone and remarks that maybe this wasn't a wasted trip after all! He walks over to the door and heads out. Erica picks up the tabloid and looks at the cover.
