Aubrey does her best sales job on Joey and convinces him to get married. The next morning, she wakes up and finds a note from him. He has gone to tell his father the “good” news. She freaks out, of course, and calls Cutter. She tells Cutter she thinks she has something that Clint wants, and heads over to the mansion.
Clint is not happy to see her. She offers to help him with his legal problems if he doesn’t show Joey the flash drive. They haggle back and forth, but she convinces him that “my good friend Rama” will convince Vimal not to testify against Clint. He is interested, and agrees to wait and see.
Blair is planning to perform at Capricorn on Valentine’s night, but her piano player is a no show—Mystery Man to the rescue. Tomas finds out from Roxy that Blair will be singing at Capricorn, so he drops in. As luck would have it [I mean, as the writers scripted it], Tomas is an excellent pianist; so, he accompanies Blair that evening. Ahh… [He is still as boring as ever.] A day or two later, she runs into him again, this time at the Buenos Dias Cafe. He tells her he is returning to Paris that day. He gives her a chance to say something to him about not leaving, but she lets him go.
Brody goes back to Llanfair to check on Ryder and hoping Jessica has come back there also. When he enters the nursery, Robert Ford is holding Ryder. There are angry words, and Brody forces Ford to leave.
By the next morning, it is apparent, Jessica is not coming home. Roxy enters her hair salon and the place is completely trashed. I still haven’t figured out why Jessica was there; but since she stole the cash from the register, she was probably trying to make it look like a robbery, but she left a clue on the mirror. Written in red lipstick: “I’m Back!” When Roxy can’t find John McBain, she rushes over to Llanfair looking for Brody.
Brody goes to Foxy Roxy’s and when he sees the lipstick message, he realizes what is going on with Jessica. He goes back to Llanfair and tells Viki. Now, she is worried sick about what havoc Tess might be wreaking for Jessica. Brody immediately issues an official APB. He soon finds out, Ford booked tickets to Las Vegas, so he hops on the next flight.
