Her brother suggests their mom come home regardless of the consequences. She’s not happy when he tells her that he told Lily about the situation.

She kicks herself for ever telling him about this. If more people who own media companies find out about this, their mom will be in danger.

They talk about what to do next, like finding the EMT. He reminds her of what this is doing to Diane but she’s not impressed.

They clam up when Chance pops up with news. He explains they found evidence that Phyllis is alive and the charges against Diane are being dropped.

Summer is sure her brother is thrilled. The cop tells them that Christine will be sure to make Phyllis pay. She’s going to be the postergirl for what happens when the rich and powerful break the law.

Once the cop leaves, Summer blames her brother for having a conscience. He won’t apologize for that and suggests they work together to help their mom.

She claims she hasn’t been in touch with their mom and tells him not to try contacting her. It sounds to him like she has been in touch with her and even knows where she is.

Summer refuses to tell him anything. After some prodding, she admits she knows where their mom is but she’s not turning herself in. She refuses to tell him anymore and rejects any of his “special brand of help.”

She tells him if he wants to help, he needs to back off.

Jack arrives at the Abbott estate with some flowers. He and his son talk about the Summer situation. She’s taken off without a word.

Diane pops up and Jack hands her a book and flower. She’s sick of being cooped up and wants out. They stop her from running out the door and she rants about Phyllis.

Jack says sometimes prays are answered and Diane gets Christine to confirm that this is really over. There’s no body, no murder, and no crime.

The lawyers explain the evidence Chance found and Christine even apologizes. Diane asks what this will mean for Phyllis. The DA explains the list of charges she’ll be facing keeps getting longer.

Kyle is thrilled and can’t wait to tell Summer.

Kyle starts to worry that Summer is not responding to his texts. Diane explains she saw her with a big bag earlier. She thanks his son for all his love and faith.

Tearing up, Diane tells them she will spend the rest of forever showing them how much they mean to her. They have a group hug.

Once Kyle takes off, Diane tells Jack she wants to go out on the town and show off her monitor-free ankles. Then they can talk about their wedding. They kiss.
