Catherine and Will pretend to be a loving couple and head to the door to greet new arrivals. They open the door to see Robert standing there with his date -- Jayleen. Let the catfight begin! Actually, contrary to established soap opera guidelines, Catherine and Jayleen will not end up in the pool trying to rip each other's hair out. Sorry. Jayleen saunters in, with Robert following behind. Catherine stares at Will. Robert introduces Jayleen to George and Lillian, smirking like he may never have the opportunity to smirk again and wants to leave the world with everybody knowing that he was the go-to guy for smirking. Catherine drags him away to try to find out why he's trying to ruin things for her. Lillian's scathingly brilliant plan has taken hold. Robert pulls out the sarcasm: "Oh, gosh, sis, are you upset? If I betrayed you in any way, I am all apologies, but you have to admit she's pretty hot. And I heard she's great in bed." Robert walks off to get a drink while Catherine stares at him, dumbfounded. Now her brother is cheating on her, too.
Robert walks up to the wet bar next to Will and orders a scotch and soda. He smarmily tells Will how proud he is that Will was named publisher. Will asks Robert what he's doing with Jayleen. Robert insouciantly says he's thinking of bringing Jayleen back to the newspaper. He argues that she's talented, and since Will and Catherine have patched things up, there should be no problem. Will asks Robert if he's lost his mind. I don't know why anybody's surprised by Robert's behavior. Isn't this exactly why he didn't get the publisher spot in the first place? Robert snarks that he forgot that he has to ask Will for permission to hire people because he's the boss now. Robert starts to walk away, but Will calls after him to get Jayleen out of there. Robert refuses, and tells Will he can invite anybody to the party that he wants: "If I'm not mistaken, I invited you here about twenty years ago." Robert walks off; Will broods. He's a brooding machine, that Will.
Outside, Lily has noticed Henry skulking around the patio. She comes down and wants to know what Henry's doing there. He lets the cat partway out of the bag by telling her that Catherine invited him to come when she saw him at school earlier today. Lily's more confused than ever, not understanding why Catherine would do that. Henry stuffs the cat back into the bag and non-answers that it's all complicated. Just then, Henry's (alleged) mother wanders in. Henry stiffens, and his face gets all pale and sweaty. He looks like the person who has to go to Jennifer Lopez's dressing room to tell her that they're out of mineral water. Lily picks up on this and notices who Henry is staring at. Henry has flashbacks of the video and postcard from earlier in this very episode as he watches his (alleged) mother talk to her other husband. He stammers out an apology to Lily and says he can't talk now and escapes inside.
