She tears up and asks what’s happening.

Summer tells her she’s hurt so many people but that won’t matter to anyone that loves her. The only thing that matters is that she’s alive.

phyllis reveals jeremy was going to kill her.

They planned to put Diane is prison. When she came to her senses and tried to back out, he threatened her and was going to kill her.

Phyllis claims what she did isn’t important. Summer guesses the poison and crash were fake. Diane is innocent.

Her mother doesn’t like that. She claims everything Diane touches dies and she puts wedges between people.

Summer points out she just faked her own death like Diane. Phyllis couldn’t go through with it and wouldn’t have done it to a child.

Her daughter thinks she has her priorities out of whack and thinks she needs to come home. She tells her Stark is dead and they can straighten everything out.

“They found him? I thought I’d have more time,” Phyllis says. “I’m the reason he’s dead.”

Slumping on a bench, Summer asks if she killed him. Her mother confirms it.

Stark threatened her and was going to kill her with scissors, but she clawed him and then grabbed the scissors. Then he was dead.

She cleaned the room, and wrapped him in a shower curtain. Now she can’t go home.

phyllis explains how she killed stark.

Summer thinks they can still go to the police but her mother says that won’t happen.

If it comes out that she’s alive, Diane will win and she will pay. She’s sorry she put her in this position.

Sobbing Summer is scared she will never see her again. Her mom promises that will never happen. She can either save he mother-in-law, or her.

Phyllis asks for time to come up with a plan. She’ll love “supergirl” no matter what she decides to do.

After hugging her, she runs off.

At Society, Nate and Audra go over his schedule and his plans for a business trip.

She’s pleased he trusts her enough to leave her in charge but would like to go with him.

audra asks nate if she can go with him to LA.

He wants her there to hold down the fort. Besides, Victoria will be with him.

She suggests he bring Elena. He hadn’t thought of that.

Nate stops by Crimson Lights. Elena is staring into a mug.

He tells her he needs to head to LA on work.


When he gets back, he’d like them to go on vacation for a week.

She asks who he is going to LA with. He claims he’s going alone.

She thinks it’s really sweet of him to want to go away with her. After he leaves to pack, she stares with a smile.

Audra calls her. Elena tells her how sweet Nate has been lately. Audra can’t wait to hear about that.

elena asks if nates' going to LA alone.
