Cassandra and Mason are still in the park and Mason can't understand how in the world a portrait of Ted could be there. Julia calls David and tells him her feelings as the wedding comes closer and Angela walks in. She is being sarcastic about David's affair with Julia. Warren calls Lionel from Alaska and tells him that he'll be back today. He asks Lionel to get Cassy to the newspaper office tonight as he wants to talk to her. Lionel tells him that Cassy is in San Francisco because she is marrying Mason. David speculates Angela's attitude about the case. He can't understand why she still hasn't been approached by Warren's lawyer for a testimony and he can't understand her intentions. Cassandra and Mason are at Julia's hotel room and Warren calls. Mason picks up the phone and they argue. Cassandra grabs it and she tries to stay calm although she is ready to burst in tears. Suzanne and Katrina talk about Cruz and Lionel comes. He tells them that Warren is coming back tonight. Angela comes and he hides it from her to get her nervous. He tries to learn something from her but Angela sees what he is up to. Cassandra takes out her wedding dress and Mason comes. She hides it so that they will have no more bad luck. They start to talk as Cassandra is very nervous and doesn't feel happy at all with the way they'll marry. She always dreamed a big ceremony with family and friends but she can't have it as everybody's opposed to this wedding. Angela has left her sunglasses at the office so Lionel jumps to the opportunity and goes at her place. Angela and David talk as if he is not there about his apparent intentions and David tells him that if he continues to throw unfounded accusations he will sue him. Mason and Cassy ask Julia to check the portrait too and Julia confirms that it looks like Ted. Suzanne calls and leaves a message for Cruz, full of hope. David starts questioning Angela's involvement in the shooting and he blames her of being the killer! Warren is back and Katrina and Suzanne are delighted to see him. Angela comes and they talk. They both need some company so they make love in the paper's office.

After she tells them she hasn't, Mason is sure that Eden is the one who's painted it. Warren talks with his lawyer, who is determined to clear him, about the case and they both realise that it's very difficult to prove his innocence. Mason postpones the wedding once more in order to find Ted. Cassandra tries to find a way to get married in spite of that but Mason tells her they'll do it once they find Ted.

Casandra tells Mason that there may be a symbolisation in the portrait as in the background there is a chinese building. Dash tells the Raymonds he won't be working for them anymore and taking a basket full of food he goes to the newspaper's office and eats with Katrina. He tells her that from now on he will be working more hours in the hospital. Julia tells Mason and Cassandra that Warren is back to Santa Barbara and Cassandra is full of questions, supposedly because she is concerned if he will try anything to stop their wedding again. Mason points out to her that as far as everyone else is concerned they already are married so there is no chance that Warren will try anything. Angela returns home and has a fight with David. Warren's lawyer comes and starts questioning her involvment in the case. He goes on and blatantly asks her if she was sleeping with Warren the night of the shooting. David asks for some time to talk with his wife. Angela admits on having an affair with Warren and although David is angry and hurt, he tries to help her by saying that she should be very careful of what she'll say as the lawyer will probably try to make her look as a suspect. Suzanne is let down as she feels there is no hope for her and Cruz. Katrina tells her that it was Eden's wish for them to get together and that's the reason why she used her personality. Cassandra, Mason and Julia find the man who sold the painting and ask him for information about the woman who's painted it. The man doesn't know anything but tells them that the background is not Singapore or any other exotic place but Chinatown. They all leave to look for Ted.

The dealer identifies Eden and Mason immediately calls C.C to tell him he's on the track of both Eden and Ted. Santana and Suzanne talk and while Suzanne admits being in love with Cruz, Mason calls and tells her that he has a new lead for Eden. Suzanne tells him that she used to live in Chinatown and maybe Eden is living there too. Angela makes a last effort to make David change his mind but David decides to pack his things and move out before the end of the week.

He wakes up in a fright and ponders the outcome of his fate.
Julia tries her best to get rid of Mason. He asks her if she thinks that he'll never be truly happy if he marries Cassandra. Julia does not know how to even respond to his question. He rationalizes that Julia wants to see him married just so that he can get a divorce the moment a beautiful woman comes along. Julia retorts that she doesn't know how his mind works and that is the reason their marriage failed. Mason confesses that their marriage ended because he was overwhelmed by their feelings which led him to make stupid mistakes, but he never stopped loving Julia, and that he wanted their marriage vows to last forever. Julia questions his sincerity this time round. Mason vows to make Cassandra happy and that he is truly lucky to have found someone who loves him in spite of all his shortcomings. Julia wishes him well and asks him not to "tempt" her. She confesses that she will always be tempted no matter how angry she is, and that she will always care about him, but not enough for her to marry him. Mason heads for the door, but counters that the reason Julia won't marry him is because she loves him too much. With that, he is out the door with a chuckle, leaving Julia frustrated.
