Dressed in sexy attire, Anna arrived at David's romantically set room. Anna revealed to David that she had a tough day because Gabriel had left to live with Alex and Dimitri. David coyly commented that Anna wanted to live alone in order to do the "spy thing." Anna continued to use seduction to find out information about David, and a suspicious David asked if Anna thought he was the bad guy she was trying to nail.

When David stepped away, Anna answered his phone. Upon his hasty return, David grabbed the phone and freaked out. Frustrated by his behavior, Anna rushed out in a huff. From the hallway, Anna spied as Roger arrived to do business with David.

Caught off guard, Leo quickly grabbed Greenlee and the letter, and dragged her into a room away from Laura. Leo ripped the letter to shreds, and he berated Greenlee for attempting to shatter Laura with the contents. Greenlee implored Leo to leave Laura before the real Leo died inside of him. Laura interrupted to say that she knew about the letter and Leo's doubts about their marriage, but she intended to go back to being the woman Leo married. Greenlee said she wasn't trying to win back Leo for herself — she just didn't want him with a crazy person like Laura. Leo told Greenlee that they all needed to move on. Greenlee ran into Jake, after learning that Leo intended to remain with Laura, and Greenlee jokingly asked for shock therapy in order to erase her memories of Leo. Meanwhile, Laura incorrectly pieced together some of the words from the remains of Leo's letter, which revealed "I am leaving you for Greenlee." Laura then vowed that Leo would never want Greenlee... after she was done with her."
