Marcie devises a way for Gigi to see Rex. Gigi, thanks to help from Marcie and Roxy, poses as a nurse, and sneaks into La Boulaie. Meanwhile, Marcie works to distract Adriana. However, Gigi is stuck between a rock and a hard place when confronted by Shaun. Managing to talk herself out of trouble, Gigi makes her way inside as Adriana descends the staircase.

A Closer Look: Dy-no-mite!

Janet decides to take action, and confronts Todd with what she learned about him from John. Afterward, Tess pays Uncle Todd a visit, ordering him provide her and Bree with a place to hide out. Tess gains leverage over Todd when she stumbles upon Todd’s intentions for Starr’s baby. Meanwhile, Marty has a vision of the past while reciting a verse of poetry to Bree. As Starr and Cole work toward rebuilding their friendship, he tells her of a poem that Marty would recite to him every night as a child. Later, Marty has a memory of reading the poem to a young boy, but is unable to remember whom he was. Across town, Tina receives a ransom note from Cain, claiming that he will kill doggie David Vickers if she doesn’t hand over the Mendorran Crown Jewels. After putting on her thinking cap, Tina goes to see Todd. At the same time, Bo and Viki contemplate on what to do with Tess once they track her down. Later, Viki and Charlie bump into one another. Todd has no time for Tina when she asks his advice on how to crack a safe. Jared and Natalie daydream that they are back at the Buchanan Ranch. Bo alerts John to Tess’ return, and the fact that she may be responsible for Jared and Natalie’s disappearance. Viki and Charlie worry about the harm Tess may inflict on Natalie and Jared. Tess eavesdrops when Todd asks Janet for help. Tess, realizing she’ll need money to support Bree, decides to steal the jewels for herself. However, she arrives at Llanfair just as Tina is attempting to blast open the safe with dynamite. After managing to stop Tina, Tess takes off with both the jewels and the dynamite. Cole seeks John’s help with a website marking the one year anniversary of Marty’s “death.” Todd downplays his guilt as Marty ponders if she’s ever given birth to a child of her own. Viki, Charlie, and Roxy pray for the safety of their children.
