Episode 20

Augusta and Joe are awakened in the marital bed at the Lockridge house by a call from Dominic. Laken, who had taken the telephone down, discovers that Joe spent the night with her mother. She announces to her that she is packing her suitcases for Hollywood, in spite of her ban. Getting the downstream part from Minx, she leaves the residence. Peter goes to see Augusta and breaks his deal  with her: he now feels insured by the love that Kelly has for him and has nothing to fear with Joe anymore, whom does not hesitate to taunt this subject. Joe gets worked up and dashes forward against Peter, but Augusta succeeds in stopping him before a fight starts. Santana, ready for everything to give herself to C.C., plays on details that can make her comparable to Sophia, the wife so much loved by C.C. who died. Rosa, who guesses her small game, warns her against danger of such practices. While Jade reminds Willard Holmby so that he gives her a second chance, Ted and Danny are spotted by an agent by simulating a titanic fight. Joe goes to his appointment with Dominic, who gets ready to show himself, when a third person comes into sight behind Joe then runs away. Joe runs out of the warehouse and is right in the middle of the road, when suddenly a car tears along beside him...

Episode 21

The car which tears along side Joe just stops some centimetres of him. Augusta is behind the steering wheel. She tells him that she has followed him because she suspected him of having appointment with another woman. Joe asks her to leave and call Dominic to reassure him and to organise another meeting with him. During their meeting, Dominic tells Joe about the information which he could spot among business stolen from Channing Jr's room: between others the evidence of a break-in at the Capwell's mentioned in his diary and a love letter intended for Santana. Santana is at this moment with Cruz in his boathouse, occupied to build large-scale plans for the decoration of it. In Hollywood, on a neighbouring table, Ted and Danny spy on Jade and on her appointment, Willard Holmby, in a prestigious restaurant. Danny's jealousy, however, causes them to be quickly spotted by the barman, as well as Willard Holmby himself. When going back to the flat, Ted finds Laken who has joined him there. She tells him that her mother is in a relationship with Joe Perkins. At home, Santana is surprised to see off-loading Joe, who has come to show him the letter which had been intended for her from Channing Jr. Confused and in tears by reading this, she gives a gesture to Joe to get out of her flat, allowing her to read the letter...

Santana's hair, which began darker in the episode, currently became completely brown.

Episode 22

Cruz finds Santana in the Capwell stables. He surprises her by leaving Joe with her. Santana once again refuses to answer his questions and she loses her temper with Cruz. Kelly and Peter set the date for their marriage for mid-November. Peter then announces to C.C. that Augusta has a relationship with Joe. C.C. then calls Augusta and asks her to join him at his residence. He threatens to lead the Lockridges to the ruins if they do not return Joe on the field. Augusta does not let this bother her and suggests to C.C. to worry and concentrate on his son Ted and his relationship with Laken. Laken and Ted, just, decided to by-pass Augusta's relationship with Joe and to continue their relationship. They catch unprepared Jade and Danny by finding before them Jake Dodge, the policeman who stopped Peaches Delight in the past and among whom he is secretly in love with. He hesitates to see Peaches Delight again, but offers the four friends to go to a cinema studio where he introduces them to a guiding friend of casting. Jake, under the charm of Laken, offers her a role in a play, to the great displeasure of Jade! Decided to obey, Augusta announces to Warren that she will go to Los Angeles, to bring Laken back home. She announces her trip to Joe and leaves him, not without sneakily telling him about the date of the marriage between Kelly and Peter...
