from him. C.C. takes Gina's proposal from her word and asks her and Keith to
sign a document certifying that they promise to leave the city if all the
Capwells go to their wedding. Keith insists that Mason is also present. Sam
Hastings, the representative of the Supreme Court, comes to give Julia news of
the spying of Keith's activities. Julia explains that Keith leads a crusade
against the Capwell family and that he accuses Mason of murder without any
proof. But Keith manages to persuade him of the opposite by showing him the
proof which he received from his secret informant. Father Michael once again

Only with her, Ming Li pushes Andrea to the limit by accusing her of wanting to put space between her and her father. Exceeded to limit, Andrea slaps her.

Julia alerts Eden and Cruz, who immediately leave to lead the investigation at the convent of Goletta.

There, Cruz finds Keith, questioning Father Michael. Father Michael uses sign language with Sister Agatha without Cruz knowing what they are talking about. Once only, Michael accuses Agatha of having paid the man who sent proof against Mason to the prosecutor and who attacked Cruz.

Kelly arrives at home accompanied by a policeman: she stole flowers for Mason's funeral, having a good time paying tribute to her stepbrother.

Eden tries to reason with her. In Goletta, Michael has a flashback of himself, firing a gunshot...
In the French version, Heather speaks about her father as being a tough Italian American man, which does not really correspond to the profile of Jon Cypher, who will play this part as from episode 993.

There, he questions Sister Sarah, who tells him nothing noteworthy. But it is in fact another sister whom Michael asked to play the deaf-and-dumb to deceive Cruz. The true Sister Sarah manages to run away from the room where she was prisoner and goes to Julia's in spite of the storm. She leaves her a note, but it flies off because of the wind.
