Before he leaves, he tells her to inform Carter that he's heading back to Milwaukee to his job. Once he's gone, she calls Carter at the coffee house wanting him to come over right away. When she threatens going there to see him, he tells her not to, that he'll be over, thus messing up his plans of supporting Sharon through this tough time.

She makes her pitch to him to take her case and then leaves.

Billy asks if the spring campaign is still a go but Jack tells him they'll probably use the pool house again since construction on the new place is going slow. Billy also tells him that there's trouble in paradise with Brittany lately and it's all due to what she's been thinking about him and Mack. After Jack leaves, Billy goes onto his laptop and sees that he was in the Glow By Jabot chatroom and chats with the same person he talked to during the New Year's campaign, which was Mack, but he doesn't know that

She doesn't admit to anything. Mack tells her she's got to get ready for school and have breakfast but invites her for some of Esther's healthy cooking meals, aka wheat germ pancakes and crap...Rianna passes and decides to leave.

  • the detective informs the DA about the apartment in Milwaukee and how it was rented using Nick's name but the rent was paid in cash under the door of the landlord. The thing they most want is a pill from that night to link the drugs they found to the ones that were sold to the ravers. When asked why the DA isn't arresting Nick, he tells the detective all they have is circumstantial evidence when one of the raver kids (Mark Hanson, Jordan's best friend) comes in to tell him what he knows. As Mark was leaving, Nick and Silva see him and are informed by the DA that he's being arrested
  • Mary shows up at Paul's office and lays into Christine about their marriage and how it's a mistake for Paul to go over there. Paul gets upset and tells her to "get the hell out of here". She leaves. Lynn comes in and asks him if he's still going to go to Hong Kong but he's not so sure anymore. He attempts to call her but she's now in Singapore and won't be back for a few days. Some other woman shows up to see Paul, named Isabella, with a problem that only Paul can help her with. Since she's a good looking woman, naturally Paul will get close to her and he'll forget his troubles with Christine, which isn't a bad thing because I'd choose Isabella over Christine 100 times out of a 100
  • Carter shows up at the coffee house and asks Cody if Nick and Sharon know about it because no one has contacted either of them. Cody suggests that maybe they were able to leave on their trip afterall but then in walks Sharon to tell them their trip might not get off the ground anytime soon.

March 6, 2001

Neil explains what happened at the father/son thing with Nate and the discussion he had with Malcolm there. He asks her if she's still seeing Malcolm. At that moment, Victor comes in. I didn't realize it was Victor's office, but anyways, they all talk about the upcoming court case. Later on when everyone leaves, Neil tries to call Malcolm again but get his machine. Alex walks in again and he reasks her if she's still seeing Malcolm because after tonight, Malcolm might need a shoulder to cry on
  • Olivia and Malcolm continue talking about her plan to completely cut him out of Nate's life. They argue loudly.

Lynn comes in and Mary tells her that she's sure Paul is going to see Christine
  • Warton presses Carter about what Tricia said on the phone. He tells him. Warton is worried that Tricia will break and mention Carter's name and all hell will break loose because Ryan has already met him in the past. He tries to call her but gets Keith answers so he hangs up without saying anything. Warton warns him that if he goes down, he'll be taking Carter along with him. Warton then grabs Carter and slams him against the door. When he lets him go, Carter fights back but has to stop when he hears Tricia knocking on the door. Warton hides and Carter lets her in. She tells him about all that went on back at her apartment. She says she can't take it anymore, especially the plans of her father to put her in the hospital and wants to leave town right now. He tells her to go back to her apartment tomorrow to pick up her stuff, just to stall for time
  • Tricia still gets grilled by Ryan and her father over the identity of her new man. She starts to break down and cry. A phone call comes in and Keith answers it. No one speaks and he hangs up. It's Carter calling, hoping that Tricia would answer. While Tricia is off in another room, Ryan makes a call to her therapist and sets up a visit for the three of them.

As Baldwin gets up to leave, he overhears Mary and Paul talking about Paul possibly going to Hong Kong
  • Baldwin goes back to his office to think over all he has learned. He says he has to do something and not let this happen. I'm assuming he's referring to Paul going to Hong Kong

The detective blows up and wants to arrest Nick there but the DA ushers him out the door. Nick gets upset that they're trying to point the finger on him. The DA tells him he's not arresting him now but he's not going to allow them to leave town. Nick tells him that's not acceptable, that if he wants them to stay in town then he has to arrest him. the DA doesn't arrest him and Nick and Sharon walk out. The detective walks back in and questions the DA on why he let them go. The DA tells him he's still waiting for test results to come in but finds it hard to believe Sharon is involved in this. Nick on the other hand? Well he has his suspicions on that
  • Victoria and Victor go over plans for Brash & Sassy. Phyllis shows up for the meeting. She explains to Victor her plans on getting inside information on Jabot but lets Victoria give the details since it was her idea. Victor senses she's reluctant to get the scoop and questions her. She tells him that she's not reluctant about anything but seducing a rival is not something she wants to do in her spare time. She walks out and Victoria follows after
  • Jack explains to Ashley why he hasn't broken up with Phyllis yet, including the message left by Victoria instructing Phyllis to spy on him. He says he was livid over hearing it but things changes when Phyllis told him Victoria's plans without him asking her about anything and all of the consequences she might face from the Newmans if she didn't go through with it and how sincere she was in telling him all of this. Ashley still has concerns and tells him to still break it off but Jack then tells her he saw information on Brash & Sassy's spring advertisement campaign but doesn't know how to use it because once Newman finds out they know, they'll know it came from Phyllis and they'll make her life a living hell. Ashley tells him it's his problem now and walks out. Phyllis calls him on his cell phone and tells him she had a meeting with Victor. He tells her they'll talk tomorrow about things and hangs up
  • Tricia continues to fight Ryan and Keith on meeting her new guy. They wear her down and she gives Carter a call.

Ryan poses a question to her on whether or not she feels Carter is looking out for her best interests
  • Warton and Carter listen to the radio in hopes of hearing news on an arrest of Nick but there hasn't been anything so far. Carter tells him that perhaps he might not skip town afterall now that Jordan is dead, the only person that could finger him for anything linked to the drugs. Warton doesn't like that and accuses him of wanting to stay because of his liking for Sharon. Carter tries to cover it by telling him that he originally intended to stick around anyways so it's no big deal now. Warton doesn't believe a single word of it
  • Malcolm and Olivia get into it over Nate once again. She threatens calling security if he doesn't leave but he gets her to just listen one last bit. He tells her that he can't just turn around and walk away from Nate whenever he begs him to stay wherever they meet up. She tells him she finally sees where he's coming from and tells him their current visitation limits aren't fair on Nate and it's only hurting him. Her solution? Ending contact between Nate and Malcolm
  • Paul and Lynn talk business. Paul starts reflecting on his personal life now that the business isn't so busy after wrapping up the Newman case. He leaves.
