|— Steven to Sam|
EVERYTHING’S GOING TO BE OKAY – As Blake seeks justice in the wake of a disturbing crime, Fallon and Sam covertly fly to Paris to investigate the truth behind a distressing phone call.
Cristal survives, but has lost her baby and may not be able to have more children. Fallon and Sam fly to Paris to see Steven. Alexis comforts Cristal at Blake's urging. Blake believes his hired muscle, Mack, is behind the shooting, and Alexis lies to further implicate him and elude suspicion. A distraught Blake kills Mack with Cristal's approval, and Anders disposes of the body. Steven wants a concerned Fallon and Sam to meet his friend, George, who has been staying with him in Paris. Their suspicions that Steven is having a drug-induced breakdown seem confirmed when it becomes clear that Steven is imagining George and needs help. Fallon and Sam check him into an institution, and head back to Atlanta. George appears, and tells a sedated Steven that he has been gaslighting and manipulating him. George is the real Adam Carrington, bent on claiming what is his in Atlanta.
