Week of August 23:
- Lucinda receives a mysterious phone call and visits the caller – Ralph.
- Craig’s attitude gets him pushed in the pool – twice.
- Jack comes to Dusty’s rescue.
- Holden’s lack of concern for Lily irks Faith.
- Carly and Jack’s relationship comes full circle.

- Lucinda gets some harsh criticism from John Dixon.
- Lily and Holden help Luke cope in his time of loss.

You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you'd be really hard pressed to try fooling Craig. It's like trying to kid a kidder. All these warn out clichés not with standing, it would appear that Blackthorn has indeed put one over on Craig. We know this because Craig is nothing short of shocked when he learns about Blackthorn's associates. What will be Craig's next move?
Craig will taunt Lucinda, of course! First, however, Lucinda receives a mysterious phone call. Is it good news or bad? More importantly, who is on the other end of the line? As we try to decipher the meaning behind Lucinda's phone conversation, Craig flaunts his relationship with Lily in front of Lucinda. Never one to stand idly by and watch Lily engage in something that Lucinda finds inappropriate – like a relationship with Craig – Lucinda may very well take matters into her own hands. What will be her next move?
In the meantime, the goose could be cooked for Dusty as Janet closes in on his whereabouts. Will she actually find him this week? Speaking of Dusty, get this. Jack comes to Dusty's defense! What makes Jack stand up for Dusty?
Finally, the week takes a soulful turn as Holden tries to explain his relationship with Lily to Faith. Will Faith buy in to Holden's tale of his ups and downs with Lily?

Carly asks Jack to call off the investigation into Blackthorn's business dealings. She's worried that Jack will be consumed by the details of Blackthorn's connections with Ralph and the circumstances surrounding Brad's death. Jack, however, defends himself saying that his interest in this case has nothing to do with that. Jack later discovers that Blackthorn has crossed paths with Dusty. Meanwhile, Dusty continues to be held against his will by Blackthorn's thugs. He tries to escape and is almost free before he is recaptured just as Janet enters the room.
