On the phone with Cane, Genevieve instructs him to let her know if Collin makes any changes to the plan. Play your part - do your sister proud. Hanging up, Genevieve places an urn (presumably Samantha's ashes) on the mantle. Justice, she whispers.
In the park, Collin hands Cane a scrap of paper - we meet here - a private estate airstrip. Just show up - I'll do the rest. Jill calls from G-worm. Collin's late and handsome men are ogling her. Blaming work, Collin will see her soon. Hanging up, he implies that Jill's a 'loose end' - then shuts Cane up to make another call.
Getting a visit from Malcolm, Lily reports that she had a good therapy session. She's been told it's OK to see Cane in the twins (which is why she's staring at the pictures Collin 'sent').
At CL's, Daniel watches Neil play Grandpa to the hilt. Telling Daniel to take a seat, Neil gets a call from Collin - who claims Jill's having a tough time (over Chance leaving). Seeing the twins would really lift her spirits - so, could they have them for the night? OK - come pick em up at CL's. Hanging up, Collin credits 'patience' for his success - then, tells Cane/Caleb that this time tomorrow, the twins will be in Australia (where they belong).
Still at the park, Cane assures that he won't be late. I'll make it work - don't talk to me like an idiot, he's agitated. Just show up, Collin leaves to 'take care of' his wife.
Back at CL's, Neil's OK with Daniel visiting Lily (and he's sorry he didn't tell Neil about Lily's visions). Lily being treated for depression is their secret. Secrets? Sofia's greeted warmly (and also encourages Daniel to go see Lily). That leaves Neil to wonder why Sofia isn't with Malcolm (visiting Lily). Easy - Sofia has nothing else to do during the day now.
Lily giggles over the photos on Malcolm's phone - then discusses Sofia's pregnancy. Yes, Lily misses her kids - but that's why she's here. Malcolm assures the twins are fine (then rhymes off the long list of people caring for them). Now that he asks - actually - there IS something Malcolm can do for her.
Jill's wowed by Collin's (when he arrives at G-worm). This night out is long overdue. Alas, Collin can't even stay for dinner - he's leaving town.
Sofia updates Neil that Kay, the tyrant, came 'this close' to firing her. Hearing Sofia's rant, Neil suggests that the leave of absence might be a good thing. He cares more about Sofia (and her pregnancy) than McCall Unlimited. Offering to mediate (between her and Kay), Neil takes her hand. You only get one chance, he says pointedly; the air thick with tension (as Sofia pulls her hand away).
Tonight? Why is Jill just hearing of this trip now? Collin's needed in San Francisco - and can't take his persistent 'babe' with him. Don't make this harder than it already is. OK - Jill will count the hours until he returns. I'm yours - forever, she vows (interrupting to kiss Collin - as he expresses how much she means to him).
Meanwhile, Genevieve continues to fill the mantel. Beside the urn, the mantel is soon filled with photos of her sweet, sweet girl.
A doctor checking in on Lily then goes to check on whether her appointment with Dr Mason has been rescheduled. In the hallway, Cane lurks - then peeks in Lily's room.
Joining Neil and Sofia at CL's, Malcolm's happy to hear that he's gonna help mediate with Kay. And since Lily's asked him to pick up some things from home, the Winter's decide to do it now - get them to her before bedtime. Neil will catch up with them later - he's waiting for Collin to pick up the twins.
Be safe my darling, Jill gives Collin a kiss. Half way out the door, he comes back for another. Wow - that was some kiss, Jill pants - I love you too. See you soon. Jill's left looking concerned (by the finality in Collin's 'good bye).
Meanwhile, Genevieve lights candles - checks her watch - lights some more - checks her watch again - then makes a call. Ethan, where ARE you!?
There Cane is - spying on Lily (who's flashing back to when the twins were born). Mrs Ashby's room is over here. Cane quickly ducks out of sight when the DR leads Daniel in (but not quick enough). Why is this happening now!? Lily panics - I just saw Cane - here!
Lily's requested books in a box, Sofia goes to get other items. Putting the box on the table, Malcolm doesn't notice that he's nudged a piece of paper onto the floor.
Lily frets - all this therapy - and now - today - for the first time, she sees Cane! Daniel figures it's because she was thinking of the twins being born. I came to get well - and it's not working! Lily gets a consoling hug from Daniel.
Cane joins Genevieve at the house - I see you've set the scene, he observes. Admitting he went to see Lily, Cane's scolded (for taking such a risk). You could have ruined everything!
At CL's, Collin thanks Neil for allowing him and Jill to have the twins for the night. Entering via the patio, Jill can't believe her eyes (and retreats a step to watch).
Jill watching, Collin gets some instructions from Neil (who's assured they'll have everything they ever wanted). And as Grandpa Neil begins his lengthy good bye, Jill happily assumes that Collin's not going anywhere - he's surprising her with an evening with the twins.
Back in Lily's room, Daniel offers support and humour. One little Cane sighting IS progress. You're grieving - not unstable, he assures (and 'committed' to getting better - ha ha). And now that Lily's smiling, Daniel will entertain her with the madness that is HIS life.
Cane just needed to know how Lily's coping with what he's put her through. Once she finds out .... Have faith - we're on the side of the angels, Genevieve thinks Collin deserves the misery they're gonna give him tonight. Then - Lily gets to be reunited with her kids - and Cane (who can only hope she's right).
Dropping by Lily's, Neil offers to help gather her stuff. But where's the list? Moving the desk, Neil finds it - and a dusty note addressed to Lily. Guess it's been back there a long time, he starts reading.
Perched on Lily's bed, Daniel wonders if giving Lucy to the Abbott's was a good idea. Lily declares it a 'great' idea. No - it's not selfish. We BOTH want what's best for our kids. Lily wants to get back to being a Mom - and is determined to be home for the twins birthday.
It's from Cane, Neil reads aloud to Malcolm and Sofia - blah blah blah - cane's last secret is the truth about himself - and his father ....
Through binoculars, Genevieve can see that Collin's arrived - the twins are fine. Go - make sure he's not suspicious. It ends tonight, Cane says in parting (leaving Genevieve to look out the window - tonight).
Neil continues - he had a sister Samantha - and a twin Caleb. Oh no ... Cane's father is Collin Atkinson!
Collin unpacks the van - and stoops before the stroller (in which Charlie's already wearing an Aussie style hat). You have no idea how long I've waited for this. You two are gonna grow up in a spectacular country - have wonderful adventures. Collin won't repeat the mistakes he made with Cane and Caleb. In the hedges, Jill watches - then looks up (at the sound of a plane - which Collin also looks up at).
Next: If you're here to see Victoria .... Phyllis answers Billy's door. Victor's there to see his granddaughter .... Why wouldn't Cane tell me about that!? Lily frets (Daniel at her side). He did - in this letter, Malcolm (with Sofia) holds it up ... Collin tells Jill that this is all meant to be a big surprise (which proves to much when she faints in Collin's arms - when Cane runs up saying 'Dad')
My Thoughts: Silly Lily - Collin didn't 'send' the photos - he delivered them in person (because somewhere between the zoo and the mental institute, there's a quickie photo mart) .... OK - so - I'm confused. The house Genevieve is now residing in, appears to be the same house as the flashbacks - which is odd - because Samantha died in Australia - and this house is in GC. ... How nice of Neil - offering 'Mama' his leftover half sandwich ... Neil claims he's 'been there' - huh? When has Kay ever been 'so angry' at him? How does Neil know that Sofia's only gonna get one second chance (how does he know Kay's willing to give her another chance at all?) ... Lily may not be crazy, but she's not a great housekeeper either (given how long that piece of paper's been under her desk collecting dust). The psych ward Lily's in looks exactly the same as the rehab facility Nikki and Deacon were both staying at. In fact, it appears she's in Nikki's old room .. How could Jill be so easily duped? What 'work' does Collin have in the States? He doesn't have an office or any colleagues in GC ... How did Cane even manage to get inside the facility - surely there'd be heavy security (to protect the residents - and prevent them from leaving at will).
