The day of the deadline has come; Lionel is worried, he still hasn't managed to get the original paintings, but he has a plan: He offered Gina a partnership and instructed her to switch another painting tonight. He plans to follow her, to see where she hides the painting. She agreed to the partnership, not knowing what else to do, but somehow something seems not right, so she plans to put Lionel to the test. Cruz went over to CC, desperate to find any lead on Ric. Cassie remembered Ric taking notes on a hand recorder. Mason suggests that Cruz talks to Julia, who is now volunteering for the B. S. B. He then got lucky: One of the members remembered seeing Ric on the train, he also mentioned seeing Ric with a small tape recorder, which later on had been found in the train and stored in the Lost & Found. To Cruz's disappointment the tape had been removed, but at the same time Michael, who was searching Ric's apartment, stumbled onto a collection of tapes. He actually employed Ric to spy for him on the Blue's. Julia agreed to stuff envelopes and send out mailing lists, although this isn't her idea of a volunteer with an excellent knowledge in law, but Dash puts her to the test and is astonished by her drive and efficiency. Laken broke the news to Lionel and Augusta; she moved out, much to Augusta's dislike. Augusta even got more furious when she found out that Amado lives next door. Laken has her mind set on somebody else though; Steven Slade, who's been giving her private acting lessons in exchange for a part time job, but Laken soon gets disappointed over Steven's mood change, when Cassie calls to confirm the dinner appointment.
Cruz seeks information on Harlan Richards from CC. CC warns Cruz of Harlan's shrewd personality and his dishonesty in business. Harlan Richards was called in by Cruz for another questioning. He admitted that Ric was working for him, only to spy on the B.S.B., but was strongly defended by his lawyer, who denied having anything to do with Ric's disappearance. Cruz tells Richard that he is a suspect in the case and is to notify the Police in case he is intending to leave town. Mack is determined to meet Gretchen, she gave him excuses at first but finally gave in. They meet secretly, because Harlan has been closely watching Gretchen for a while, knows about the affair and warns Gretchen not to see Mack ever again. Craig agreed to the interview with Debra, but soon realized that she was only interested in finding out about Kelly, Robert and himself, and smoothly get s out of the situation. Steven took Cassie out to dinner in San Francisco. He discovered that she seems to be very fond of Mason, all of a sudden. Cassie explains that he is not the little boy who kept bothering her, he grew up to be a successful lawyer and now business man, and that she looks up to him, but she denies having a crush on him. Kelly invited Robert alias Quinn to dinner over at the mansion. CC dinner plans had been cancelled and Kelly asked him to stay. He was hesitant at first, but then agreed, and later that night he warned Robert, that he would become his worst enemy, if he ever walks out on Kelly again. Quinn managed the situation by changing the subject, because he still doesn't understand CC's hatred towards him.
Lionel waited all night in front of the mansion for Gina and Phyllis to show up, and to follow her to the place where she is hiding the paintings. Gina never showed up. He went home quite distressed, where Augusta already waited, inquiring where he had been all night. Lionel wasn't up to Augusta's mood, it came to an argument, where Augusta told Lionel that all she cares is her part of the deal: Cash money.
