Frankie is not happy that Jason tries to reanimate their relationship, she doesn't want to disturb her sister's marriage. Miles watches her and Jason during their ride and gets suspicious.


Fallon is scarcely able to bear the tense situation with Miles being so impatient. She considers to go home to Denver with Jeff for a few days, which makes Miles even more furious. Conny advises her to stop running away.

Sable is disappointed that Miles refuses to accept her plans concerning Conny, too. She tries to make Jason understand why she had to do what she did, like, but he has recognized meanwhile that he can't put up with the way she's changed. He makes clear that he will fight her for Conny and moves out of their room.

Monica and Neil have another fight about business, Dominique interrupts them and is very annoyed about the lack of self control of her two top executors.


Sean and Bliss continue their relationship and Sean asks Zach again to let him go. His uncle reacts furious this time and throws him out.

Monica and Miles worry about Conny because of what their mother has told them. Finally Monica goes to Bakersfield and accuses Hutch of attempted extortion. On this occasion, he finds out who Conny really is. He feels used and insulted and tells Conny harshly that they are through. Conny is furious, but Garrett fears that it won't be easy to fight Sable and her lawyer Arthur Cates without risking a scandal for the whole family.

Dominique and Garrett continue their romance, but she still keeps it a secret from him that they have a daughter.

Zach meets a certain Mr. Livadas, the captain of one of Jason’s tankers and blackmails him to do him another favor.

Fallon calls her father in Denver to let him know she has got her memory back. Blake is happy. LB and Blake come to California and are reunited with Fallon. Blake advises her to come back to Denver in order to avoid all the trouble with Jeff and Miles, but she refuses, and Jeff promises him to win her back in California. Miles offers the annulment of their marriage to Fallon in order to be fair. Sable is horrified about this idea, but Miles forbids her to interfere.


Meanwhile Conny receives a summons from court. Sable declares that she can avoid a trial by undoing her gift to Jeff, but Conny does not even think about it. Nobody sees to side with her. Finally, Sable asks Frankie to take Jeff and to leave so that she can save her and her son's marriage which is the final impulse for Frankie to leave, although Blake asks her to stay for Jeff's sake.

Blake and Jason must recognize that they now have trouble on either end of the pipeline now: The injunction and Jason’s tankers.
