Over with Hilary [Mishael Morgan] she is still talking to Neil [Kristoff St. John], “I could never love you and I certainly never loved Devon. It was only an act to pay you back for letting my Mother die. Devon was just collateral damage.” Devon WALKS in and says, “I cannot let this go on. you are lying.” Hilary, “For the first time in a long time I can tell the truth. There was nothing fun about losing the person you love. I decided that I needed to get close to you Neil,, ingratiate myself, get you to love me.” Neil does not believe it. Hilary laughs, “You saw what you wanted to see, you gave me the power to destroy me. Do I have to remind you of the time I drugged Cane and took all those pics of him in bed. Do you think it was hard to jump into Devon’s bed. That look on your face Neil made every nauseating minute with you too worth it.”
Devon [Bryton James], “What the hell are you doing? Don’t you think you should have waited for me before you did this. I know you are doing this so I can get back with my Dad and my family.”

Billy does not understand why he spent his lifetime in the headlines and now he stays out of the headlines for the past year.

Summer tells them they did not find Austin in the snow, they found his body behind the wheel of a red car about a mile from the cabin. The officer told Summer there was an accident. Kevin [Greg Rikaart] says, “that is not possible.”
Chelsea does not understand why Billy would be so suspicious of someone who did such a heroic thing as save them.

Devon tells Hilary he does not believe it. Hilary tells Devon he is clueless. Hilary says, “A man who would cheat with his father’s wife, I did not love you, you are so pathetic. You would be so surprised to know anger and hate are so close to love.”
Back with the Scooby Doo again, Abby says, “what if Austin woke up and went to an abandoned car and tried to drive off?” Kyle says, “then lost control and crashed?” Abby responds, “its possible!” Kevin responds, “Except one minor detail, when we found him in that closet he did not have a pulse.” Noah says, “So how did he wind up behind the wheel of a car?” Mariah says, “Maybe someone dragged him there and staged it to make it look like and accident.” Abby, “WHY?” Kevin, “To cover up for us.” Noah, “What are you saying we have a guardian angel?” Abby, “Who would do that?” Kevin, “Mariah, Fen and Courtney are the only two not here.” Noah, “Courtney would not tamper with the already tampered evidence.” Kevin, “Fen was with us he would not have had time.” Summer tells them to stop she cannot take more of it., please.

I almost laughed when you gave me the eternity ring, what are you 14?” Devon, is shocked. Then Hilary tells him, “The best revenge is Neil finding us in bed together. Come on, why do you think I wanted him to get his eyesight back?

Hilary, “I am out of your life.” Lily, “I wish I would have figured it out myself” Hilary, “how could you figure it out when all you think of is yourself.” Lily, “I hope you are happy with yourself.” Hilary, “I am, I got my revenge.” Lily, “Take your slutty self and get yourself out of Genoa City.” Hilary, “What if I don’t?” Lily putting her face close to Hilary’s in a threatening voice, “I can be a buzz saw too!”
