Episode #12,743 -- As Jake and Carly are about to kiss among the literal and metaphorical steam, Sage comes bearing the valve Carly disabled to get Jack over there. Jack tells Carly they’ve passed the point of no return as far as reconciliation and leaves. Meanwhile, Mike admits to Katie that the hot jewels he got from a missing girl many years ago are currently buried in Carly’s house – Mike’s old home. Mike wants to confess all to the police, but Katie convinces him to just dig up the rubies and return them – anonymously (because doing things anonymously worked so beautifully for her with “Oakdale Confidential,” which started this mess in the first place). Katie barges in on Carly, weeping from Jack’s rejection, and convinces her to have coffee so she and Katie can talk. As the women leave, Mike sneaks in. Katie tries to buy Mike time by keeping Carly distracted, but Carly doesn’t want to be Katie’s Best Friend Forever and storms out. They arrive back home in time to hear a thud in the basement, not realizing that Mike has made an unexpected discovery. A dead body. Paul and Meg are about to make love, but she refuses to as long as he is still involved with Emily. Paul tells Meg he’s in love with her. She admits she feels the same way. But as long as Emily is a nutcase, they can’t see each other. Meanwhile, Emily has given. Dusty a fresh set of clothes, and taken his bloody ones to Henry, telling him there is still one, teeny-weeny little task they need to perform. Henry calls Meg and asks her to meet him. As she’s driving over, she’s stopped by police who insist on searching her car. And find Dusty’s bloody clothes.
