The Inside Story: Deal Or No Deal?

Clint confesses to Nora that he is sorry for stooping to Dorian’s level in order to regain control of BE. Nora, meanwhile, gives Dorian a choice—either return BE to the Buchanans or face criminal charges for hiring a hitman to kill Ray. Langston isn’t very accepting of Clint’s apology. Ray makes a shocking accusation concerning Vanessa. Antonio and Talia inform Ray that he will be returning to prison in Columbia. Langston is relieved to find Dorian at home. Cristian goes to great lengths to visit Vanessa in jail. Sarah attempts to cheer up Lola. Adriana and Dorian mend fences as she prepares to return to Paris.

A Closer Look: The Truth Is Out There

Todd’s guilt increases while babysitting Bree. At Llanfair, Natalie and Jared attempt to draw attention to themselves by starting a fire in the secret room, only to be caught by Tess. Charlie tells Viki that she’s being too hard on herself. Bo informs Viki and Charlie that he is confident Tess has returned, and that Todd has known for a long time. Meanwhile, Tess has murderous intentions as far as Natalie and Jared are concerned. Natalie and Jared belittle an indifferent Tess. Meanwhile, Viki confronts Todd about Tess. While confirming that she spent the night, Todd claims that both she and Bree have since left. However, Viki takes to the stairs after hearing Bree through the baby monitor. Viki comes close to discovering Marty. At the police station, John takes Fish up on his offer to hunt down Keys. Janet considers confessing to John, but changes her mind after seeing how happy Marty is. Cole and Nora reminisce about Marty. Tess decides that Natalie and Jared need to suffer as Nash did. However, she nearly collapses in pain as she puts her dastardly plan in motion. With Marty in hiding, Todd tries to throw Viki off track by spinning a web of lies about why Bree is staying with him. Afterward, Todd hides the truth again from Marty. Unfortunately, Viki refuses to leave until Tess returns. Cole reads his college essay “A Letter to My Mother” at Marty’s “grave.” Starr finds Cole at Marty’s grave after reading the essay, which he e-mailed her. Meanwhile, Marty has another vision of the baby boy. Fish pushes John one step closer to finding Marty. Natalie and Jared beg Tess to set them free. Todd is successful in persuading Viki to return to Llanfair with Bree. Marty’s imagination goes into overdrive. Viki waits for Charlie.
