After assuring Dusty that she had nothing to do with Craig's confrontation, Lucy is stunned when Dusty claims he can't be friends with her because Craig is going to use her to get to Johnny. Lucy insists Johnny belongs with Dusty but when he tries to call the police to have Craig arrested, she stops him. Dusty then decides that she has to "abandon" her father or their relationship is over. Showing her the destroyed penthouse apartment, Simon tries to talk Lucinda into being his new investor. Returning the gift he sent her, Meg orders him to stay out of her and Paul's lives but he guesses she's quietly glad that Paul's baby died because Emily will no longer be a problem. Meg jumps in to help when Craig suddenly has trouble breathing. Craig hints to Meg that he may bring his comatose wife back to Oakdale to show Meg that he's still in love with Rosanna. Once Lucy arrives, Jack shows up and arrests Craig but Lucy argues that he's too ill to go to jail. Having bought a home pregnancy test, Jade calls Will and asks him to bring Gwen and Maddie to the motel room so she can prove she's pregnant. After Gwen arrives, Jade emerges from the bathroom with the positive proof only to find Gwen has already left. When Jack suggests they set some rules now that she's dating Simon, Carly resents his warning that Simon is no good for her. She later advises Simon what Jack told her and he's grateful when she adds that she defended him. Simon then gives her the good news that Lucinda may invest in their project. Later, Lucinda explains that after a chat with Mike, she's decided to turn down the investment offer. But when Carly asks, Simon claims they're ready to proceed. After the memorial service, Paul tries to convince a clinging Emily that their relationship would never have worked. She's rocked to learn from Dusty that Craig's back.
