Cane informs his father that he’s told Jill and Katherine about his past, and will soon tell them about who he really is. A furious Colin decides to step up his threats by telling Cane that if he opens his mouth to Jill and Katherine, he will have no choice but to get rid of Jill: permanently. Knowing that his father is true to his word, Cane has no choice but to continue telling Jill and Kay everything, minus everything he was going to reveal about Colin.

The minute that he becomes hesitant, a furious Lily tells him that she wants him packed and out of the house immediately. Cane pleads with Lily that for her and their twins safety, he can’t reveal everything. Not wanting to hear any more of what he has to tell her, Lily demands that he pack his bags and move out. Once away from Cane and with the twins, Lily has a run in with Blake, who also tries to get him to hear his version of the ‘truth’, but an angry Lily lashes out, telling Blake to stay away from both her and her babies. Back at the apartment, Cane records a heartfelt message for the twins. A heartbroken Cane tries once more to talk to Lily in hopes of getting her to believe him. When he makes the suggestion to run away together, Lily tells him that he needs to stop running away from his problems and face them.
