Kelly continues drawing sketches of the ghost town which she sees in a dream, by imagining that she was there one day with Joe.

Nick informs C.C. that he agreed to be the official photographer of a famous magazine to cover Ted's trial. Augusta informs Sophia that she knows that Channing Junior is Lionel's son. Sophia pleads her to repeat nothing to C.C..

But Augusta is interrupted by Lionel, who has just learnt that Julia is reported missing in New Stailand. Mason is then confronted by Santana, who discovered that Gina and he were together at the hotel when Brandon was found unconscious on the roof of the Capwell residence. As Mason refuses to give in to her to help her move Gina aside from Brandon, Santana leaves to find C.C.. Armed with the bill of the famous night at the hotel, he accuses Gina of being a liar. But she backs out suddenly, preferring finding other proof against Gina before following the accusations...
On board of the yacht, Julia wakes up finally, with a clear mind. The helicopter to help approaches Jack. Aboard, Amy, immediately phones Brick, taken back to Santa Barbara. Brick hastens to announce the good news to Augusta. Sophia visits Augusta and pleads to her once again to keep this revelation a secret from C.C.. While Augusta gets ready to go out to inform him, Sophia finds an argument to keep her: if C.C. learns the truth about Channing Junior, then Lionel will also learn it, and he will claim rights on Brandon of which she is also the grandmother of. Facing this point of view, Augusta re-analyses. Cruz has the fibres found on Christie's dress the evening of the rape analysed: they would come from three models of possible shirts. With Mason, they are of benefit that Christie is alone in the room of the court to subject her to the three models. Christie throws into a panic at the sight of the similar shirt to that of Steve the evening of the attack. She asks her brother-in-law to drop her at home and searches her flat in search of the shirt. She finally finds it, hidden in a drawer of the living room, and phones the police...
