Lily now being played by Megan Goode reaches the bottom of the staircase as Lauren looks down from the balcony. She smiles.
Sister Patterson walks over to Lily with her microphone still in hand.
Neil: You look stunning.
Lily: I think so too.
Neil: So you set this all up?
Lily: I did with help from Sister Patterson.
Neil hugs his daughter again as Leslie with Moses walks over to them.
Neil: Lily, I want you to meet Leslie. This is my new lady.
Leslie hugs Lily as Olivia arrives and walks over to them.
Neil: I’ll say. I’ve been reading about those earthquakes over there.
Lily: Last time I checked I was your only niece but then again it seems there is a lot I don’t know.
Olivia hugs Lily.
Olivia: My sister would be so proud of you.
Lily: I think mom would be too. Well I’m back in Genoa City. New face and all.
Devon and Abby walk over to Lily. He hugs her.
Lily: Thank you.
Devon: It’s good to have my sister back in town.
Lily: I see so much has changed since I’ve been gone getting plastic surgery. I see dad with Leslie, He was with Sophia and you were with Roxanne Devon. I have some catching up to do.
Neil: We’ll have plenty of time for that. I wonder where your cousin Nate is.
Lily: I sent Cane an invite I thought for sure he’d be here with the twins. Has anyone seen them?
Everyone looks at each other dumbfounded.

Meanwhile Hillary rushes over to Nate and kneels down beside him.
She says again smacking his face a few times. Nate slowly opens his eyes and becomes alert.
Hillary: I don’t know I found you like this.
Nate rubs his jaw stinging still from the blow Devon delivered to him.
Nate: No No NO!
He says sitting up.
Hillary: What’s the matter?
Nate: Devon knows!
Nate: That I switched Moses’ paternity results.
Hillary is in shock and wonders how Devon knows. She remembers playing her recording of the truth to Malcolm at GC Nights.
Hillary: How did Devon find out?
Nate: He overheard Roxanne and I talking about it.
Hillary: Of course, big mouthed Roxanne.
Malcolm walks in with a suite and tie on. He sits over at the bar and orders a drink from Ty the bartender.
Ty: The last time you were here, you were tripping bro.
Malcolm: I had just found out that I’ve been played for years by my brother. Let me get a beer. And keep them coming. I’m so damn mad I’m liable to do anything.
Then the song “The Big Payback” by James Brown comes on the speakers.
Malcolm: Yea what a perfect song for my mood. I’m mad. And its time for the big payback. Neil got down with my girl. Took my kids. That's over! I want revenge!
Ty serves Malcolm his beer.
Ty: What you mean bro? You sounding like you about to lose it.
Malcolm: Not at all. I‘m not about to lose anything. I’m about to gain. Tonight at this lil’ party I’m going to I won’t be leaving empty handed. Neil will be handed a loss.
Malcolm downs his beers the madder he gets thinking of the situation with his son Moses.
Malcolm: Tonight people are going to pay for doing me wrong. Nate and Neil especially. Those suckas gone get it tonight.
Ty: You really going through it man. Keep ya head up.
Malcolm: Naw... Nate and Neil betta’ watch they backs. I’m coming for them tonight.
And with that Malcolm finishes his fifth beer.
Before the Winters Family can respond to Lily’s question about the twins, Hillary with Nate walks over.
Nate: Beautiful as ever.
He gives her a hug. He then gives his mom a hug.
Olivia: Nathan what is the matter? Your jaw looks swollen.
Nate looks at Devon then back at his mother.
Devon: Tell her what’s wrong Nate.
Lily: Uhm excuse me? My children? Where are they? Have any of you seen them?
Again they all look dumbfounded.
Lily: And where is Malcolm?
Nate and Devon exchange looks.
She pulls out her cell phone from her purse. She dials Cane’s number. It goes straight to voicemail.
Avery: Cane come on pick up the phone. Where are you and the kids? Everyone is very worried. Why was Philip tied up to a chair in your empty apartment? Cane please call me. What have you done?
Avery then hangs up the phone and throws it down into the passenger seat. She continues to be frazzled out about Cane. She opens up her purse and pulls out some Cocaine. She has a flashback of the last time she took a hit, she fell asleep and forgot to wipe her nostrils when Daniel came to visit her. Avery looks around and sees no traffic.
Avery: Ah what the hell. Cane has me so distraught.
Avery pulls out her car manual from the glove box and readies a line of Coke to snort. She gets the straw from her soft drink and snorts for an instant high. She inhales and exhales and relaxes in her seat.
Avery: Ahh yes. No stress no worries but I am going to find out what is up with you Cane.
Sheila walks down to the basement and meets with Cane.
Sheila can see where she hid James out the corner of her eye. She hopes he doesn’t become alert and makes noises if he still alive.
Cane: If you can show me where the gas pipe is I can seal it up for you and you can have heat, then I can be on my way.
Sheila: Follow me.
Meanwhile upstairs, in the front room where Dru and Sharon are being held captive as Mary has a gun pointed at them. She is nervous and tired.
Sharon looks at Mary.
Sharon: Your crazy mother leads me to believe that you slept with my son Noah?
Mary: Noah is your son?
Sharon: Yes he is now answer the question. Did you have sex with my son? Sheila made it seem like it was some sort of plan.
Mary: Like you said my mother is crazy. Who knows what she is talking about?
Sharon: I don’t believe you.
Mary: I’m not here for your beliefs.
Sharon: Well excuse me for trying to look out for the welfare of my son.
Dru: Bitch you tied up to a chair, what can you do?
Dru: Bitch I do.
Sharon shakes her head.
Dru: Mary girl look at me. Look at us. We’ve been tied up for months. Surely you are not as crazy as your mother. Have a heart and untie us please! Our families need us. Sheila can’t keep going on like this. She doesn’t gives a rat’s behind about you. She slapped you quite a few times and knocked out your father. You can end this madness Miss Mary. I beg of you answer our prayers and stop this mad woman you call your mother. You can’t be a part of this. You can’t be as evil as your mother. You have your whole future ahead. Think about that.
Mary gets emotional at the plea Dru makes. She has tears in her eyes.
Dru can see she is getting to Mary.
Dru: That’s right Miss Mary girl. Please do the right thing. Be the Carter that did some good for once. Together we can end this.
Mary: I want to-
Sheila grabs Mary’s hair from behind. Mary is in pain. Sheila grabs the gun.
Sheila: You weren’t about to betray momma bear again were you?
Dru: More like crazy bear.
Mary: Mom no I... just…
Sheila: You are really trying me little girl. You already betrayed me once by bringing your father here and you saw what happened to him didn’t you? Now if you are not careful you may end up like him.
Sheila lets go of Mary. Mary has tears in her eyes. Very emotionally hurt that her mother is treating her like this.
Dru: See Bitch, I told you to untie me. Then I coulda stopped your crazy ass momma from having her way with you.
Sheila: That mouth is the last thing I need. Drucilla Winters oh how I would love to go one on one with you just like Lauren and I used to.
Dru: See bitch you wrong because first of all I’m not no Lauren. Bitch I will give you these hands. All you got to do is untie me.
Sheila: Everything has its time and place. I really want to find out if that bark is as bad as the bite.
Dru: Crazy ass Bitch, I’ll bite yo’ knee caps off.
Sheila: Bitch! Is that the only word you know?
Dru: No Bitch!
The Colonnade Room
Sister Patterson and Lauren are talking in a corner of the ballroom.
Lauren: This party really came together didn’t it?
Sister Patterson: I agree Sister Lauren. There is nothing God can’t do.
Lauren: So Nate says you go to his church. I don’t think I’ve seen much of you around here.
Sister Patterson: Yes I am the wife of the pastor at the church Brother Nate goes too. That troubled young man.
Lauren: I don’t understand.
Sister Patterson: Oh yes Lawd. My third eye tells me Nate is battling some demons.
Lauren: Your third eye sister?
Sister Patterson: Why yes. You see my god gave me this special power in my third eye. I can see evil miles away. And right now Lauren, my third eye tells me evil is on its way here.
Lauren: My goodness I hope not.
Lauren: Can I ask you a question sister?
Sister Patterson: As long as you promise to come to church on Sundee. And if you don’t have any Sundee dresses don’t worry chile, come as you are or you can borrow one of mine I got plenty in my closet honey.
Lauren: Of course.
She says chuckling.
Lauren: I wanted to ask you where your third eye is.
Lily: Why is everyone looking like that? Did something happened to my children?
Neil: No Lily Gosh no. It’s just that Cane has kept us away from the twins and with that restraining order he’s filed, it’s been really hard.
Lily: I just don’t understand why he would not be here with the twins.
Abby pulls Devon off to the side.
Abby: Devon talk to me, I know something is up. You left after you saw Roxanne and Nate. You must have followed them what happened?
Devon looks at Abby.
Devon: Nate has really done it. It’s bad Abby. And Roxanne knew the truth all this time. I’ve been made a fool of.
Abby: Devon what are you talking about?
Devon: Nate betrayed our family.
Then Nate walks over to him and Abby stands back.
Nate and Devon square each other up.
Nate: Quite the Floyd Mayweather.
Devon: And you are quite the deceiver. You betrayed this family. What is your mother going to think?
Nate: So now that you know what are you going to do?
Devon: Is it really up to me?
“EVERYONE ON THE MUTHA FUKKING GROUND NOW!!!!!”
Everyone hears. As they turn to see the voice the Winters family are floored to see it’s Malcolm with a gun in one hand and a bottle of Hennessy in the other.
Neil: Malcolm what are you doing are you drunk?
Sister Patterson: Lawd have mercy, You testing me tonight. I got to get my tools because it’s going to be a battle.
Sister Patterson readies her bibles and her holy water.
Lauren: You might want to give me some of your supplies, I’ve never seen Malcolm like this.
Sister Patterson: This is no work of the Lord.
Malcolm: Neil I’d watch that mouth tonight. Because tonight bro, I will lay you out.
Neil: Malcolm, my son is here please don’t do this.
Malcolm: He’s my son! He’s my damn son Neil and I got proof!!
Devon to Nate: Do you see what you have done?
Hillary kind of backs away from the crowd as she realizes what she has done playing the tape of Nate’s confession to Malcolm. She doesn’t want Malcolm to implicate her.
Malcolm looks at Nate and then aims the gun at Nate.
Malcolm: Tell them nephew! Tell everyone here how you switched Moses paternity test from me to Neil.
Olivia: Malcolm! Stop this!
Malcolm then turns to Olivia and points the gun at her.
Olivia gasps as she is horrified. She realizes Malcolm has lost it and hit rock bottom.
Nate: Malcolm don’t do this!
Malcolm: I’m not trying to hear all of that! I’ve had it! Tonight I’m taking what’s mine.
Lily: Malcolm please don’t do this, we can talk bout this.
Malcolm looks at Lily.
Malcolm: My sweet baby girl. Taken from me just like Moses was. By Neil. I’m sorry baby girl, I have to do this. Now please get on the ground, I don’t want to have to hurt anybody but I will. GET ON THE GROUND NOW!!!!
Malcolm fires a few shots into the air as Moses begins to cry. The crowd obeys Malcolm’s order as Malcolm has effectively taken Lily’s coming home party hostage.
