Plot OverviewEdit

Miles must stay in jail, district attorney John Moretti refuses to set him free for bail.


Fallon and Jeff enjoy their honeymoon and remember their first "wedding trip" to Las Vegas.

Bliss and Sean are on their way to Las Vegas, but break off their trip when they hear about Miles in the news.

Sable is desperate about Miles. For the first time for years she shows how vulnerable and afraid she actually is inside and asks Jason for comfort.

Jason tells Zach he'd rather burn the oil than require his help. Zach tries to rally the desperate Sable against Jason.

Miles must stay in jail another day in order to get the best condition to get free for bail. Monica tries to encourage him, but his strange behavior bewilders her. She explains to Wayne that under the present circumstances she cannot accompany him to the hospital where he is going to have his operation and he understands.


In Jamaica, Fallon and Jeff make plans for their future. However, they get a frightening prophecy by some woman called Odessa.

Roger admits that he can't go to Singapore because of Frankie’s ruined reputation. She wants to be fair and confesses that she has used him and that she still loves Jason, after which Roger offers her to let her go.

Conny suggests that Frankie might move into the pool house and thus provokes another argument with Sable. When Jason swears that he had nothing to do with Rogers transfer to Singapore, Frankie assumes that Sable must be behind it and attacks her. And she accepts Conny’s invitation.


Bliss and Sean return, but although she has promised, she doesn't disclose the fact that they were going to get married to the family.

Monica complains to her mother that Miles is shutting her out. Miles terrifies Sable with the confession that he had a blackout and doesn't know if he has killed Mahoney or not.

At the arraignment, Moretti lets Jason know that they have the murder weapon with Miles’ finger prints all over it.
