As Candace approached her home, she was greeted by Emma, who pretended she was there because she doesn't want to see her good friend Pamela get hurt if John Ross strays. She offered Candace a job working for her father, which is when Candace said Harris had just fired her.

In Vegas, John Ross and Pamela got shot down by the son of the sheik, who informed them that his father felt disrespected: It took them this long to come to him because they tried to buy the arctic leases without him.

Christopher went into the parking garage and found Drew waiting for him. Not at all creepy, Drew! Drew said he would be willing to die if it would bring the babies back, but of course, it wouldn't. Still, Christopher almost killed him when Drew grabbed his arm and he got flashbacks of the rig explosion, the fetal heart rate monitors, etc. Drew told him to finish it, but Christopher wants Drew to live with this pain, too.

Christopher went to see Heather, who cleaned up his cut hand and told him maybe the reason they'd found each other was so he can help her deal with Bo and she can give him a second chance at a family. Cue her kid Michael coming out in his jammies and asking Christopher to play with him.

Emma confronted her father about Candace, and though it pains me to say it, Harris was right when he said she should think more of herself than being John Ross' piece on the side. When she insisted she and John Ross understand each other, Harris showed her the pictures of John Ross with two of his escorts -- including the 16-year-old.

Back in Vegas, John Ross and Pamela used some fancy pair of coveted earrings to buy his way into the poker game. Christopher called the police and told them about Drew returning, and then Bo showed up at Heather's wanting his wife back. He took a swing at Christopher and fell to the floor. Christopher said he'd take him home because Christopher is good guy Bobby's son.

When Nicolas told Elena's PI that Candace had been fired, he learned that the PI had sent Elena another lead. She finally showed him the video of John Ross and Emma, and he was giddy. But Elena said she wouldn't show it to Pamela because it's the kind of thing you don't recover from -- the man you love cheating with someone you thought was a friend. He told Elena they'd find another way... then he went out onto the deck and immediately phoned the PI and asked her to email the video to him. Dick.
