He tells Cris how Vincent saved Tate's life the night before. Sarah asks why Cris cares about what happened and he tells her because it's because of Evangeline and Adriana is his cousin. Sarah asks Rex if he and Adriana have gotten back together but he tells her even though it's none of her business that no they haven't and to stop giving him the third degree. Sarah tells Rex she thought maybe some town gossip would help her to kill the boredom, then both Cris and Rex tell her that she should get a job.

Cole requests an opportunity to speak and he relates what happened with his mom being blackmailed and his finding Miles in the storage area with Todd. He too becomes angry and yells that he wants the man behind bars for the rest of his life. Bail is set at $500,000, a "piece of cake" for Miles, and his passport must be surrendered. John assures Cole that he did just fine and that he's working on things for Marty. The Mannings learn that Starr and Cole are back together, though Starr hopes Coles' impassioned speech will pay off. Nat reassures Miles and John wants to know why she's behaving as she is. They're all there because she ripped up Miles' confession, he charges. Miles has no one behind him and she can relate to that, she explains. He's not had any breaks. John thinks she's just trying to get back at him, though she retorts that not everything is about him. He wishes her luck in her "new crusade." He also speaks with Nora and is still convinced that Marty didn't kill Spencer. He really believes the cases involving Miles are connected in some way. He has a thought suddenly and makes a phone call. Miles feels badly that Cole hates him and he reminisces to Nat about the wonderful day when Marty made breakfast for all of them. Now it's all over. He will have to get over it, Nat explains kindly.

A surprise visit from Cole has Dorian leaving and Todd sending his family out of the room after the teen expresses sorrow on the way things turned out. He had been planning on helping Starr but then Miles threatened him and his mom. She would have done the same for her own family, Starr says, before heading upstairs. Cole loves Starr and wants to work it out. Todd doesn't like him and never will, he acknowledges. They agree that the only thing they have in common is their love for Starr and they decide they will have to tolerate each other so as not to lose her. Cole even admits that he's glad Todd is o.k. Jack wants his mom to stay the night too.

Michael is worried and wants to make sure that Rex and Adriana are still on his side. They are and they also learn about Marcie not being able to have children.
