Tom tells Craig the only work he has to do is get his wife away from him. Will tells Gwen not to let Adam get to her. Jade hides in the bushes to spy on Adam and Gwen.
At Fairwinds, Tom, Lucy and Dusty witness Margo as she puts Craig in hand cuffs for his past kidnapping of Lucy. In tears, Lucy tells her father he doesn't know how to be a good father, and Craig pleads with Margo not to arrest him, but Margo continues as she reads him his rights.
Craig accuses Dusty of manipulating Lucy. After confronting Dusty, Craig turns to Lucy and tries to hold back his emotions as he tells her, "I'm not a perfect father, but the love I have for my children -- all three of you -- is perfect. Don't let Dusty destroy our family!"
"You destroyed our family!" Lucy responds through anger and tears.
Craig tells Lucy she will regret having him placed under arrest. Margo steps in and takes Craig out to place him in jail where he belongs.
At the jail, Craig informs Margo that the charges against him won't stick, and instead of blaming Lucy, he puts the blame on Dusty. Margo tells Craig he's wrong about Dusty, and he doesn't care who he hurts. She lets him know if he as a real man he would learn to love and let go of his children. Craig asks Margo if she was in his position could she let go of her children, and she responds by telling him she could if she hurt them like he has hurt his. Margo smiles when she tells Craig that the press will have a field day with him, and she states Lucy will make sure to alert them.
Later, Tom comes in and finds Margo upset. He hugs her and tells her it's going to be okay. She confesses to Tom that she can't believe Craig still gets to her after all these years.
While Tom comforts Margo, Craig reminds him they have a lot of work to do, but Tom refuses to work for Craig, and he tells him the only work he has to do right now is get his wife away from him. Craig refuses to let Tom quit, and he orders Tom to set bail and discuss the situation. Again, Tom refuses telling him to find a new lawyer, because he has a "conflict of interest." He goes on to say he should have never taken the job. While Tom deals with Craig, Margo smiles.
"We have a contract," Craig reminds.
"So sue me," Tom shouts.
"Tom, don't you walk out on me!"
Ignoring Craig, Tom leaves the jail with Margo by his side. "Tom," Craig shouts.
"Just when you thought the night couldn't get any worse," Emily pronounces on her arrival.

Gwen is happy, but she asks Adam if they can reschedule for tomorrow, because she has a test to study for. Adam is disappointed, but tells her they can. Casey sees that Adam doesn't like the idea, and asks him about it. Gwen also asks Adam if her studies will be a problem, and Adam tells Gwen she needs to choose. "The Dean's List or the Billboard's List, but you can't have both," Adam adds. He goes on to say he needs a commitment from Gwen, because he can't sit around and wait for her to get a diploma.
Soon after, Casey and Adam leave. While outside, Casey tells Adam he was too hard on Gwen, but Adam tells him he needed to be.
Meanwhile, inside, Will and Gwen are discussing what Adam just told her, and Gwen tells Will that Adam is right, and she assures him she can handle Adam.

At the cottage, in a heat of passion, Katie and Simon tear each other's clothes off and make love. Later, as they lay in bed naked, Katie asks Simon what they have done. She wonders if they've made a mistake.
While Katie and Simon are getting dressed, Katie asks him to leave, "please," she continues. Simon refuses telling her he came to make peace of their past, not to sleep with her. While in tears, she tells him he was her first love, but she can't love him anymore. She goes on to say she broke her vows with Mike. "I cheated and lied," she sobs.
Later, Simon tells Katie they made love, and she informs him they done something, but it wasn't love. She makes her way to the door to show Simon out. "Get out of my life and stay out!" she orders. Reluctantly, Simon leaves, and on his way out he punches the wall.
After Simon leaves, Katie cries as she realizes she just betrayed Mike. While crying, she feels a hand touch her shoulder.
"Hey, what's wrong?" Mike ask as he enters the room.
