Episode 1580

Lionel criticises his mother for considering him to be a failure who has never been able to make decisions and who has ever achieved anything in life. He gets worried about the place that Maxwell Hammer has in his life. Minx appreciates the frankness. She tells him that the source of water that they intend to exploit is half on the Capwell property. Lionel offers to find a solution. Cruz explains to Eden that he found suspicious holes in the top of Robert's staircase and that he thinks that Kelly's fall is not accidental. Eden immediately suspects Debra London, while Cruz leans towards Robert. They then try to trap Robert by speaking in front of him about a codicil to C.C.'s will. Robert rushes in C.C.'s office to read the fake document set up by Cruz: it says that if Kelly dies in five years, only C.C. will inherit from her. At Quinn's, Flame becomes mad after seeing photos of the wedding of Quinn and Kelly. In the hospital, Kelly comes back from examinations. Tearful, she announces to her parents that the doctors fear that her paralysis is permanent and that she could never walk again...
